DIFFERENT WAYS TO WEAR:

A Sweater Vest

Sophie Elkan

Sweater vest, sleeveless jumper, tank top – what’s in a name? Whatever you call it, this looks fresh and right for autumn 2020. By all means, view it as a practical extra layer, but it’s much more fun to see it as a style challenge; something to be worked into your wardrobe to create an aesthetic all in its own right. A simple white shirt peeking over the top, with crisp collar, sleeves and tails on show looks fresh, but you can also take the preppy vibe to the max, as we have here.

Fair Isle is an autumn perennial, and the Hardie Fair Isle from Plümo marries a wealth of seasonal colour, making it simple to pair with other shades, or statement-making when worn with neutrals.

From a pattern made famous by an island in North Scotland, to one which originates from the Western Highlands: argyle. It is inexpressibly liberating to pattern-clash. Stick with a similar palette and try and see pattern as a homogenous concept: pattern goes with pattern – don’t get too bogged down in the details. Burlington Socks have ruled the argyle diamonds since the mid 70s and the Shoreditch Cotton joins up the diamonds into a tartan print.

Camel and Yellow

Yes, you read that right. Less styling suggestions for a particular garment this month, more a visual guide to the recent rightness of camel and yellow as a combination. Aren’t we all craving something fresh? It might seem discordant at first sight, but very quickly the eye adapts, and the pairing looks perfectly symbiotic

Ideally, both should be big enough to be seen from the moon – or at least large enough to make an impression on your video call. As with any statement piece, the key is in finding the balance.
