DIFFERENT WAYS TO WEAR:

A Sweater Vest

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.

It’s not simply the powders, creams and lotions which we slather on that improve us, our senses need nurturing from all manner of lovely things, especially those which delight the eye, and make our every-day a little bit more special.
