One word to bear in mind when contemplating your fall 2022 wardrobe? “Investment.” Owning an arsenal of enduring staples is a failsafe way to approach the new year; nothing beats an interchangeable capsule of pieces that you can transition from season to season. For those of us who don’t holiday year round, fall presents a curiously compelling offering: the opportunity to inhabit an alternate persona with a proclivity for layering and wear-anywhere sculptural staples rather than, say, skinnies and regular-fitted numbers. The soft power of layering needn’t be loud: its quality can become the shorthand for winter’s insouciance, and if you’re not the sort inclined towards minimalism then oversized statement blazers – or coats – are as seasonally appropriate as they get. Don’t be fooled – versatility doesn’t mean plain and boring. Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini’s animal prints, Jil Sander’s timelessness, Louis Vuitton’s uber-cool edge and Ferragamo’s slouchy toppers are trends worth carrying through until spring, while Zoom-friendly statement jewelry (key in Cartier) that saw us through lockdown should also be used in the frosty season. Below, follow Dry’s 8-step guide to refreshing your rail just in time for the season ahead. Scroll away.
