Force Of Nature

Feel the pull of fashion built to tackle any type of terrain…

by | May 17, 2018 | Style

Designers have long drawn inspiration from the natural world, and while that might conjure images of soft floral dresses and pretty sunset shades, fashion is full of references to Mother Earth’s rugged side.

This season wild blooms weave their way across masculine tailoring, while outerwear built for braving the elements nods to nature’s strength. Shearling-lined leather, woolly coats and windproof anoraks are key styles to try as the temperature drops and the days continue to dwindle.

To give your existing outfits an intrepid spin, trade dainty footwear for thick socks and sturdy block-heeled boots that make even a caped cocktail dress feel as if it were made to conquer vast landscapes. Finish with untamed waves and barely-there make-up to embrace nature in all its glory.
