THE PRE-FALL PRINT TO WEAR RIGHT NOW
By Caroline Ferry, 14 August 2018
The summer of 2018 will always be the summer of the midi dress. That's just a fact. And the prints? Florals and polka dots have reigned supreme. But what will next season bring for those of us who favour the covered-up, one-item wardrobe wonder? We’ve had a preview, and things are looking very promising for AW18...
Street-style maven and overall best-dressed Dane, Pernille Teisbaek, rocked up at the couture shows recently giving a late-summer styling masterclass. The length is long and covered up, the colour palette is earthy, the sunnies are fresh-as, small, futuristic and retro all at once. But it's the tiger stripes we're really excited about. Giving all the best safari feels, you're about to see a lot more of this hero print as we head into pre-fall. And for the footwear? She’s made it totally August-appropriate by throwing on some flip-flops – a perfect way to wear new-season now, while we wait for ankle-boot weather to roll around again.
Trying this one at home? May we recommend you give this most amazing tiger-print jumpsuit from those Swedish style wizards, Monki, a go. Make like Pernille and swap out summer’s favourite tassel earrings for a generous slathering of gold chain necklaces, bracelets and gold hoops in varying sizes too.
