Style Advisor: New Season Wardrobe Upgrades

Style Advisor: New Season Wardrobe Upgrades

Cue: the new season. Summer is officially over, and everyone is back to work. For those with last-minute holidays booked – we’re pleased for you. For those of you whose summers have come to an abrupt end, it’s time to look ahead, and not down at your slightly damp and in-need-of-replacing shoes. The new collections are landing, so we thought we’d mark the start to AW19 with a hitlist of our favourite essential luxury pieces – the wardrobe upgrades that will see you through this season and the next. It’s time to establish yourself as a style connoisseur, with timeless Tees, sweats, trousers and accessories from the world’s most respected designers. Upgrade: complete.

Get your wardrobe into shape for autumn with Gucci’s elevated athletic basics. Side-stripe jogging bottoms reference the label’s retro aesthetic, and chunky logo trainers tick the box for our favourite ‘ugly’ footwear trend. They might not give you the hit of endorphins an actual workout will, but we prefer them to breaking a sweat. .


Streamline your look for autumn with simple but stylish black and white pieces from Valentino. We’re embracing the versatility and ease of a two-tone wardrobe with smart sweat pants and oversized Tees emblazoned with the statement VLOGO graphic. Wear with minimalist trainers and a classic black bomber jacket.

If you’re not ready for neon, and the thought of anything embellished makes you cringe, opt instead for more subtle details to give your new season look some interest. Balmain’s understated grey marl T-shirt is finished with an iridescent, white or black logo to the front. An elevated basic for autumn days that need a little flair.
