Shop the post: The Outnet summer classics



The Outnet

Just putting together a few classic picks from The Outnet* as we segue into full-on summer mode. I was a bit late publishing this, so all the amazing The Row shirts and flat pumps have sold out but it’s worth signing up to the Outnet newsletter for next time.

In the meantime, there are lots of other summer staples to explore. White and cream midi dresses* seem to be a thing, to wear with The Outnet’s own Iris & Ink flats* or Jimmy Choo Mary Janes*. (more…)



Trend report: What to wear for AW21



Gabriela Hearst AW21

New season, new trends! I don’t subscribe to big changes so I tend to look for second-time-around trends that suit my personal taste. (Much more manageable that way.) We’re all a bit more conscious about how we shop now so here’s a gentle reminder that you can probably just shop your existing closet for some of these.

For those going back to offices, even if it’s part time, they want to dress the part. And for the never-going-back-to-the-office brigade, a tailored blazer is still the easiest thing to throw on for impromptu Teams calls. I guess old habits die hard.

The best route for this then is ye olde blazer and jeans combo and fortunately it’s an easy one to shop your closet. Here’s three ways to wear… (more…)



Dude, where’s my mask?

The accessory of 2020 may have been the Covid mask, but a close second was the mini hands-free bag. I was very lucky to receive a Porter Yoshida & Co Force bag* (below) for Christmas; a compact crossbody bag with adjustable strap that can be worn inside or outside your jacket.

It’s what I currently use for my walks or coffee runs as it fits my mask (in a clear Ziploc), phone, earphones, keys and cash without bulking out. If I wanted to, I could fit in a mini umbrella as well. (more…)
