There is nothing that can lift the spirits, not connotes composition on a frost-tinged day, quite like a crisp oversized staple. Accordingly, DRY recounts the best bits to sublime your winter game. You’re welcome


If Instagram is proving anything, it’s that frost-tinged glamour revolves around warmth: here’s how to do it right. Has this season ever appeared quite so brisky as right now? Surely the penchant for dressing up with (actually) somewhere to go never felt this pronounced before a pandemic (that shall not be named), when slideshows of WFH settings were reserved for the most of us, and our mid waist dressing remained a mystery for the world at large. This season’s most visible trend might feel nostalgic, but opting to make it entirely modern is all the rage. Ditto, one of this winter’s standouts is nigh-on impossible to miss: on the FW22 runways a revival of ‘80s billowing drama appeared from Louis Vuitton to Prada, eschewing outrè connotations for something far more modern. These are the pieces that fashion’s insiders are going wild for that are too good to save for the forthcoming season. And, as winter is now upon us, what better time is there to figure out how to wear sun-soaked colours without appearing like you’re trying to make a style conundrum? In honour of this seasonal shift, here are 13 shortcuts to wearing winter’s minimal trend with maximum impact. You’re welcome.
