At the start of the new season we are looking for pieces that are current and fresh, yet weather appropriate and easy to style with what we already have. As the 2023 collections arrive, we take a look at five staple styles that will build on what you already own, start to create the foundations of a hardworking, capsule wardrobe, pieces that will mix and match with each other, and that you can also start to wear straight way.
Think of this like your outerwear; an investment to keep returning to year after year - look for neutral shades, classic shapes and premium fabrications.
Will work over anything if the fit is oversized and boxy. Wear over maxi lengths with boots, or with a matching wide trouser.
The Chunky Chain
Don't keep these for after hours, these are made to be worn with everything. Either keep it solo for a clean and minimal feel or layer up multiple lengths.
Any style that has historical origins will stand the test of time in your wardrobe. Wear as you would your favourite jeans, and tuck in your layers of knitwear, until spring arrives.
The Chunky Boot
This chunky shape shows no sign of slowing down, look for a practical yet classic Chelsea style with a longer length to go under any trouser.
