As London passes on the baton to Milan for the next sequence of menswear Fall 2018 shows, the Vogue.me fashion desk tirelessly seeks out sartorial ideas to keep your wardrobe (be it in Beirut, Abu Dhabi, or Cairo) up to speed with the front row in Europe. After exhausting reels and reels of photographs we’ve whittled it down to three looks that ooze conservative edginess and tick the boxes for practicality when visiting colder climates (Note to all: don’t underestimate how cold Milan/London/Paris is right now). Scroll down to get the bleeding-edge of outfit inspiration fresh from the street style circuit.
#1: Caroline Issa’s Take on Winter Florals
The Look: Issa is a self-certified fan of modest dressing and aptly landed a lead campaign with The Modist for Fall 2017, so it’s not unusual for the fashion director and street style maven, Issa to reach for long hemlines and covered-up styles. Here, she makes it on-point to belt-up over a puffa jacket and wear baby blues with all-black accessories and wardrobe staples. Plus, a cashmere turtleneck teamed with a ruffle collar jacket is a ‘yes’. Do try this at home.
#2: Eleonora Carisi’s Twist on Understated Chic
The Look: The Italian creative director who favors minimalistic, luxury brands such as Céline and MaxMara -plus, an enduring devotion to Aesop products – takes to the street style circuit at Men’s Fashion Week in a tonal look of beiges, cream textures, and grey homespun knits. And it works. To get the look, co-ordinate your shoes and bag (or bumbag, ahem). Go for chunky textured key pieces and then let your oversized sunglasses do the talking.
#3: Linda Tol’s Confidence with Color
The Look: After spotting the ‘dancing mustard coat’ by Syrian designer Mariam Al-Sibai on Saudi-based model Aliya Diawara at NYFW last season, the Vogue.me fashion desk has since had a penchant for bold yellow outerwear. Here, Amsterdam-based style pro Linda Tol demonstrates the so-2018 way to wear the look. That’s with ‘mom’ jeans, white ankle boots and matching accessories, please.
Go-To-Brands: Mariam Al-Sibai, Monse, JW Anderson, and Arwa Al Banawi.
