Make a low-key style shift…


AS liberating as streamlined dressing can be, it’s natural to feel the need to shake things up from time to time. Luckily, hitting refresh on an understated aesthetic needn’t trigger decision fatigue.

During winter a statement coat is all it takes, and a textured take on classic black will prove as easy to wear as it is eye-catching. Next, try tonal dressing. Ideal for the minimally inclined, a signal-hue look requires zero guesswork, and as a trend, will continue well into the warmer months.

For the daring, translucent pieces make a mighty impact, but if you’re after something a little more low-key, a few choice accessories like a bold belt or statement hat will reinvigorate go-to outfits in a snap.
