Even the finest details can make or break an outfit. That’s why for our latest Style Manual, we’re diving deep into details. From pattern to colour to even shoe-sole thickness, here’s what you should know.
Crewnecks, V-necks, cardigans, or vests — it doesn’t matter. Whatever knitwear you’re picking out this year, go bold in both colour and pattern.
In an era of free-flowing and wide-legged trousers, chunky soles help balance an outfit’s proportions. While thick soles have been attached to sneakers for ages now, they’re making their way onto smarter shoes too, like this season’s favourite style choice: the loafer.
Minimalism is out. And if you’ve been playing with funky fabrics and prints lately, it’s time to take it one step further by wearing some embroidery. The decorative needlework adds a touch of whimsy to any look.
Dressing functionally doesn’t require head-to-toe hiking gear. Luxury brands everywhere are embracing pockets, slapping them on pants, sleeves, and everywhere else you can imagine.
Finally, the guys get what the girls have always had: the luxury bag. Crossbody bags worn round the waist or chest are the ultimate marriage of style and function.
A toned-down all-over logo look reads more like a textured pattern than a “look at my label” vibe. A perfectly tailored suit with an iconic logo is high elegance with a streetwear twist.
Dust off your old copy of Take Ivy and take notes, ’cause prep is back. Think chunky V-neck jumpers, sweater vests, and striped polo shirts for a new take on a timeless style.
Roman numerals are over 2,000 years old, but that doesn’t mean they can’t still look fresh. While the works of Shakespeare and Confucius may require a slight recalibration of our technology-addled 21st-century minds to appreciate, they have hung around for as long as they have because their insights are timeless. In the same way, a Roman numeral dial may seem old-fashioned, but this ancient time-telling system is just as simple, efficient, and beautiful today as it was in the days of Caesar.
