25 New Season Key Buys: Part Five

It's the final day of our exclusive fashion collaboration.

21. The Long and Short of It

The allure of culottes continue for another season as the catwalks were awash with shin and knee chops in both angular and softly draped styles providing a feminine take on masculine cuts. For the vertically challenged opt for high waist versions that end just below the knee to create the illusion of longer legs. Wear with heels for extra streamlining or flatforms for daytime elevation.

Thanks to Stella McCartney and her super band of ‘Stella Superhero’ bags, bags have taken on a personality of their own. Let your bag do the talking this season with a selection of kitsch in-your-face-conversation starter beauties.

23. Tee Time

Get your rock chick hat back on and raid your local vintage shop or your mother’s wardrobe as ‘70s and ‘80s vintage tees are back. With designers like Loewe and Jonathan Anderson showing you how to incorporate them into your capsule wardrobe, there has never been a better time to rock out your look a little and cut a retro dash.

24. Walk the Line

From racing lines, to pops of colour and classic Breton styles, stripes are bigger and brighter than ever. With Denis the Menace references, re-invented nautical classics, and bold and vivacious colour blocking, this season stripes are lining up to prove why they are the perennial favourite of high summer dressing.

25. Take Cover

Thanks to merging seasons and designers favouring the transitional cover up, a myriad of spring coats lined the catwalk. Choose from relaxed and languid styles in the form of duster and trench coats, or stick to minimal cuts or supple leather for uptown chic. There has never been a better time to ‘get your coat!’
