Casual vogue.

Look ahead.

So, the best thing since September happened yesterday; Vogue landed on the doorstep. The March edition. Fat and swelling with inspo for Spring/Summer – complete with its shop the season supplement, it was a ‘just yes’ moment.

I’ve scanned it, but obvs it takes time to delve into. Let’s face it, I’m pacing myself to make it through Feb. Anyway, here are my faves.

Clean cut casuals.

Say hello to effortless casuals… simplistic, relaxed and minimal – mmm!

Things to know.

White, cream, beige – if it’s nude you’re in. But we’re not talking hearing aid beige here, this is far more subtle; it’s soft, it’s quietly textured. No shine, no sparkle – just natural.

Organic materials are a big yes – think art teacher chic, jedi palettes and free flowing fits.

Subtle structures – just because this style is relaxed, it doesn’t mean you have to abstain from structured fits. It’s toned down tailoring.

The verticals.

So stripes are back this season – no surprise there… it’s the Spring/Summer go to. But what works about this season is theming. We’re not confined to nautical. The re-emergence of the vertical stripe sees regatta, to country chic, to sporty vibes edging their way onto the runway.

Things to know.

If it’s striped, it pretty much works – this season’s stripes are pretty random, so you can be playful with colour, shape and genre.

Verticals can be worn with horizontals – yeah, that happened. I’m not sure I’ll be wearing this look myself, but apparently it’s a thing (v. v. toned down examples below – which I love).

Can’t beat the blues – despite a variety of colours, the blue and white stripe wins. Maybe I’m biased because I’m a die hard stipe fan, but the collection of traditional blue and whites is really nicely executed this season – especially when teamed with the natural tones and materials we’ve seen with the clean cut casuals (that is with the exception of the Dolce and Gabbana green and white striped shirt and trouser combo – which is beaut!).

Shop the look.

These looks are pretty easy to adopt – but should you need a few new season staples, I’d suggest these beauts…
