A new season means new clothes. However, like people, clothes do not exist in isolation. When investing it’s important to think about how a new piece will fit with what is already hanging in your wardrobe. For a sustainable approach to consuming fashion (and without having to Marie Kondo your wardrobe every couple of months) a central item with which to work around offers manifold styling potential: an opportunity to experiment with proportions, texture and colour. 

With that in mind, we’re offering different ways to style some statement pieces - showing that you don’t just have to stick to neutrals when thinking long-term.

This week we're highlighting a pair of eclectic mermaid print silk twill trousers from Valentino.

Style One
This neutral-toned Matthew Adam Dolan denim shirt allows the mermaid print Valentino trousers to shine in all their glory. The oversized dimensions and side pleats mimic the flow of the wide legged trousers, whilst the rigid denim fabrication grounds the look (and the pearlescent press-studs subtly draw on the marine theme). Complete the edit with these strappy sandals, which are a red, white and blue iteration of The Row’s 90s-inspired Bare sandals.

Style Two
This boxy panelled leather and piqué shirt by Rokh is a modern iteration of a classic bowling-shirt. The dark blue and cream colourway coordinates perfectly with the Valentino trousers and injects some textural contrast. Add these Isabel Marant trainers for a casual touch.

Style Three
Pair the Valentino trousers with this teal Sies Marjan velvet corduroy shirt for an unusual tonal juxtaposition. Add this ivory work-wear inspired denim coat from Jil Sander for an understated utilitarian accent. And finish the look with these sleek 70s-inflected Gianvito Rossi brown heeled ankle boots to add a little refinement and provide a nice contrast against the raw hems of the mermaid trousers.
