How to Wear the Season’s Hottest Layers
25 September ‘22
“This season layers are extra considered”, reveals Fabric of Society's Catriona Macleod.
“A less is more approach with complementing textures and tones.
This cashmere sweater by LVIR is a wardrobe staple – its cleanest of cream shade and asymmetric neckline are the perfect way to allow a contrasting base layer – such as Ottolinger’s addictive hot pink shirt to peek through and command some glory.”
All the Jackets
Once an unsung hero, the humble jacket is now a go-to, focal styling piece. “I'll happily pair two together”, says Catriona.
“I like mixing lightweight and heavier fabrics, or delicate details with utilitarian hardware to create a directional layered effect. The (Di)Vision x FoS bomber jacket – worn oversized and open – over MISBHV's monogram cropped jacket results in an ultra-modern silhouette. Aleksandre Akhalkatsishvili's vegan leather blazer, with its body-skimming cut is a must-have for any wardrobe and perfectly contrasts an oversized jacket worn over the top. For this look to Aries – their distressed denim jacket will be an instant cult-classic, I guarantee it.”
Think of layering and you'll go straight to the most versatile pieces, in shapes and shades than can be worn time and again. However, adding an unexpected accessory in a bold print or stand-out colour can add instant elevation.
“Pair these psychedelic Ugo Paulon sandals with panelled denim by Feng Chen Wang or Eera's crystal mesh bag (all the Y2K vibes) with Ahluwalia's fitted jacket. These additions deliver instant edge to more classic looks,” advises Catriona.
