Theres lots of talk this season about the appeal of tonal dressing ie wearing the same shade head-to-toe. The Kardashians have been on this for ages, but the catwalk moved it on by spinning the colour wheel to red, AKA the no-brainer 80s-worthy symbol for power. Its indisputably the colour of the season and the death knell for the ubiquitous millennial pink. A pair of red boots puts a pleasing full stop on any office look on a day when you havent got the bandwidth for Dulux-style colour matching.
Seen everywhere from Erdem to Michael Kors and Dries Van Noten, the long-sleeved floral dress is not only pretty, but it is also joyous, because it is so useful. The satisfying life hack of a dress versus separates no rummaging for the right T-shirt to go with the tweed skirt plus the statement of the floral print means you have a look without thinking about it. This is win-win dressing at its best. Invest immediately.
To get a take on the US now, with intellectual weight, Raf Simons a Belgian who references rave and collaborates with artists including Sterling Ruby is a good shout. His debut for Calvin Klein was all cowboy boots and denim with one model wearing an American flag as a skirt. His ad campaigns, meanwhile, feature models on a deserted highway, with keep up a Calvin Klein billboard in the background showing other models looking at Andy Warhols Elvis. If that sounds meta and knowing, so is your conscious choice to wear an indigo denim jacket and jeans, as seen in Simons collection.
