How to Dress From the Waist Down

FEATURE: QUICK READ
Words by ABIGAIL GURNEY-READ

Sweatshirts, knitwear, T-shirts, jackets; our wardrobes have become somewhat top-heavy thanks to a year of daily Zoom calls. How about looking to the future though? A time when everything south of your webcam’s eyeline won’t play second fiddle. Give some love to bona fide shoes and actual trousers. Because not too far from now, we’re going to need them.

The White Sneakers

If there was ever any doubt as to the ‘wardrobe cornerstone’ status of white sneakers, this past year has surely put it to rest. Right there with us through thick and thin – rivalled only by our now-threadbare slippers, classic kicks have a unique staying power that’s hard to top. While jeans – equally ubiquitous – make a worthy companion, we’re grounding ours in the here-and-now with SS21’s cargo trousers.

The Polished Loafers

Time spent at the office has reached an all-time low over the past year, but as we anticipate a return to more formal environs – one way or another, polished loafers make a conscious step towards a whip-smart dress code. Of course, ditching an elasticated waistband goes hand-in-hand with this shift in shoe-drobe. But fear not: loose-fit tailoring promises comfort and movement as much as it does sophistication.

The Classic Boots

There will come a point when we can head out on the open road once more – the world as our oyster. So, when that time comes, be ready to fill your boots. Black leather pairings will go the distance in more ways than one – a classic anchor to the season’s fashion-forward trousers, be they subtly checked or heavily embellished.
