Not wanting to wish August away but… it’s not feeling very ‘summer vibes’ here atm. So please indulge my early preview of Margaret Howell AW23 comfort dressing.
Margaret Howell is continuing its run of modern utility-luxe dressing, with increasingly gender-fluid styling and casting that I’m fully on board with. I love this 80s-utility vibe which feels like a cross between old money Burberry and army-surplus-thrifted-from-Laurence-Corner-circa-1985.
Naturally, my standout is the massive tweed check coat layered over the grey V-neck, tucked into a raw denim skirt. (I would swap the knee socks for ankle length.) The pleated kilt-esque skirts are going to be everywhere for autumn, while the chunky webbing belt over the gauzy is-it-a-coat-is-it-a-dress is a great example of ‘what’s the surprise’ wrongness. P.S. this may have to be the year I pop my Paraboot* cherry, inspired by these crenelated-sole shoes.
Let’s have it!
