Investment Dressing

Words by Sarah Meikle

Take inspiration from these new season runway looks, curated by fashion director Sarah Meikle, to refresh your 2019 wardrobe with classic pieces that will simply never go out of style.

The Knee High Boot by DuoBoots

These DuoBoots knee high boots provide the perfect finishing touch to any outfit you wear. The patent leather boots will match your classic coat and keep your legs warm against those chilly winter winds. Available in 7 different calf sizes.

The Trench by Max Mara
No wardrobe is complete without a timeless trench coat – especially in classic shades of camel, black and navy - and you’ll never go wrong with an oversized man-style silhouette and subtle detailing. Chic, practical and trans-seasonal, dress up your trench with a patent boot, or do off-duty with wide leg trousers and sneakers.

High Waisted Trousers by Givenchy
The 80’s silhouette is back in a big way and looking chicer than ever. So, accentuate your figure thanks to high-waisted trousers in neutral shades and tops, with just the right amount of a bold shoulder.

Contrasting Denim by Colovos
“Denim everything” is our mantra, and the head-to-toe denim look has reached classic status. Dress it up (the denim tuxedo is very current), dress it down (jeans, sweater and sneakers are a uniform) and contrast dark and light shades. This effortlessly chic shirt-and-skirt combination ticks a lot of style boxes (especially with a thigh high boot).

Mini Biker Jacket by Givenchy
A biker jacket is one of the ultimate wardrobe staples, but resist the urge to invest in black, and rather go for earthy shades, like camel and khaki green. The perfect complement to a long flowing dress or high-waisted trouser, the mini biker is cropped and sits tight on the body.

Pyjama Dressing by Oscar de la Renta
Consider this elegant, yet comfortable look as the new twist on the traditional trouser suit or dress. Stylish enough to take you from the office to lunch and then onto a cocktail evening (just add heels and a tuxedo jacket), pyjama-style dressing, which is best done in stripes and old prints, will also transform into perfect weekend-wear courtesy, of a sneaker or slide.

The Bucket Bag by Hermès
It’s all about the bucket right now, thanks to this bag’s beautiful round silhouette that slips easily over the shoulder, allowing for easy access to your essentials (phone, lipstick, wallet et al), not to mention its stand-out style. Invest in rich leather shades of burgundy, brown and black.

Gold Bracelets with a twist by Chloé
Layer up your arm candy. Pile on fine, chunky and sculptural-shaped gold bangles and bracelets to add that all-important touch of glamour and luxury to every look.

Tassel Earrings by Oscar de la Renta
Long tassel earrings add instant fun factor to the simplest outfit. Wear your hair down or in a slick ponytail and allow the earrings to grace your shoulder for a sexy style statement.

Oversized Tote by Bottega Veneta
Every busy woman needs a large chic tote bag to cart around her large essentials. A timeless neutral colour will go with everything and will never date, but show a bit of personality and embrace the enduring combination of black-and-white, with a quirky embellished twist.

Tall Boot by Chloé
A tall boot is the best way to pull off “masculine” femininity. A year-round classic, the knee-high boot in patent, textured or embossed leather is a statement basic that blends beautifully with breezy summer or warm winter dresses, A-line skirts and cropped pants. Embrace the effortless and timeless factor by opting for a solid block heel and a boot in shades of brown, black, burgundy and tan (though feel free to strut your stuff with a bold stripe).

If you’re in need of a new season overhaul or wish to source luxury designer fashion, a bespoke styling session or some shopping guidance, your lifestyle manager will point you in the right direction.
