Winter Wardrobe Essentials
9th January '24
There’s nothing more therapeutic than putting the sequins and towering heels to one side (temporarily) to welcome the calmer, timeless simplicity of January dressing. Read on to discover how to create a wardrobe of the most versatile, stylish items to wear on repeat.
The Maxi Skirt
2024’s go-to skirt shape is unlike the maxi skirts we’re used to. This season, rather than flowing and floor skimming, these intelligent designs stop at the ankle, lending a tailored edge perfect for pairing with both boots and heels.
Aya Muse's brown midi skirt is our go-to for the season. Detailed with deconstructed tailoring notes that has a workwear spirit that easily takes you into evening wear territory too. We also love The Line by K’s easy slip-on white Eliza maxi, perfect for sun-filled days or paired with Aires sweatshirt and Sporty Rich baseball cap for cool-girl casual. If you’re looking for the ultimate black maxi – which every capsule wardrobe should feature – Dion Lee’s column maxi skirt is the one. Sitting on the hips with flattering side cut out details, it is the perfect balance of elegance and versatility.
The Power Jacket
It’s no secret we live for a tailored blazer. A Fabric of Society essential since our launch, elegant tailoring with a twist sits at the heart of our aesthetic. Choose a jacket that has serious milage, opting for versatile tones of black, grey and cream. These are the shades you’ll wear time and time again. Dion Lee’s couture-inspired black corset tube blazer ticks all the boxes and then some. Its waist-defining corseted shape elevates it to a status far beyond work wear – see it as a valid alternative to an event dress, yet its simplicity ensures it also works with premium denim too. Crafted in a luxurious wool blend, it is detailed with hook and eye fastenings at the front and back which also allow you to wear the design off the shoulder.
Meanwhile, Nanushka’s cream vegan leather blazer is a coveted must-have, soon to sell out. Wear with the brand’s matching vegan leather trousers for a head-to-toe power look or with Eckhaus Latta trackpants for an off-duty vibe.
The Dramatic Knit
Knitwear should never be an afterthought. Make yours a showstopper with Aya Muse’s floor sweeping Agos cardigan. The classic camel shade is refreshed with dramatic length and front and back slits. Wear it buttoned up or open over a dress or denim. For an injection of welcomed winter colour, Caroline Hu has mastered the bold knit with her vibrant and whimsical crochet flower knitted top. Crafted in a super-soft wool blend, the playful flowers drape gently, offset with a distressed modern knit technique.
The Commanding Co-ord
The perfect co-ord, such as Blumarine’s impeccable satin blouse and cargo pants will become your trusted go-to time after time. Guaranteed to elicit compliments wherever you go, they always look perfectly put together, whilst effortless. REMAIN by Birger Christensen’s matching skirt and waistcoat set also ticks off the maxi trend with its bi-coloured skirt, the ideal option for a more casual set that still has heaps of style appeal.
The Cool-Girl Baseball Cap
A bonafide must-have accessory for grounding a look and giving a low-key edge, the baseball cap for 2024 strikes a graphic note with bold slogans and branding. Sporty & Rich have mastered this with their edit of witty caps in classic varsity shades – our favourite being their green and white flannel cap.
