Do Or Dye
Woodstock’s 50th anniversary is this month and that may have something to do with fashion’s embrace of the psychedelic pattern. This fall however, tie-dye is elevated beyond the classic cotton tee with luxe fabrics in richer tones. Get ahead of the sustained trend by layering a turtleneck under a minidress for an unexpected twist on eveningwear.
The Future Is Tech
Urban techwear seamlessly blends aesthetics with function. Constructed of utilitarian materials originally developed for the great outdoors, the latest streetwear craze is not only durable but also acts as a contemporary uniform with extra pockets to boot. Stay cool in the warm weather by pairing lightweight taffeta with matching mesh shorts.
That ‘70s Show
Channel your inner Jackie Burkhart with corduroy pants reminiscent of the groovy era. The trend still holds up today with a cropped version by Italian brand PT01 in a bright, pink print. Modernize the vintage-inspired piece further with a crisp button-up blouse and playful accessories like bow-detailed sandals and a decorated clutch.
A camp shirt has become the go-to summer staple, as it can look relaxed on vacation and effortlessly polished for the office too thanks to creative styling. Carry the look throughout fall by choosing a vibrant pattern in a muted palette like this shibori top by Dries Van Noten. Then, dress up the wardrobe-favorite with softly tailored wide-leg trousers.
Yes, it’s not quite time for sweater weather but texturized pieces can still be worn in the warmer months. Take The Row’s striped cashmere pants, for example. When styled with a ’90s-esque cotton tank and leather thongs, these comfortable bottoms become a playful choice for summer.
Leopard print has never really fallen out of fashion, but it was a pleasant surprise to see it on the men’s runways this season. From Celine to Neil Barrett, designers brought a lively energy with spots appearing on coats and collars in various motifs and textures. Style your printed piece with bold running shorts now and then swap for jeans come September.
