Key fundamentals of the modern woman’s wardrobe
The art of dressing well is a delicate balancing act. It’s about less equating to more through a thoughtfully-compiled ‘uniform’ for everyday outfits. At The New Trend, we pride ourselves on a curated trove of ‘caspsule wardrobe’ esque garments and accessories. But how does one ensure they play well together for the best (and most useful) everyday style outcomes?
"While it can be hard to collate versatile, ever-fashionable looks, our latest campaign shoot is testament to getting dressed with tact." says Brand Director Vanessa Spencer. Here are our tips on building your most crisp, refined and ready-to-wear fits for every occasion.
Ground your look in neutrals.
Ton sur ton outfitting has our heart. While integrating colour is an almighty way to dial up the drama and usher in summer, building a baseline collection of tonal, neutral essentials will be what makes getting ready in the morning suddenly seamless. Securing a monochrome blazer that can cocoon you in the colder months (or drape you as the sun comes out) will carry your artful dressing from season-to-season with max wearability. Whether it’s Rohé’s Alix Blazer for a masculine silhouette or Christopher Esber’s more contoured, hyper-feminine shapes, there’s a blazer in our repertoire for you.
Elusivity via sunglasses is key.
Vying for that nonchalant, ‘cool-girl’ aesthetic? Nothing says chic more than a faithful pair of all-black frames. To retain mystique, edge and sophistication in even the most simple workday ensembles, we always tie in hero garments with a polished set of sunglasses. Saint Laurent or Bottega Veneta will take you there.
