How are your wardrobes holding up? Are you only just getting the hang of this whole winter layering thing? Maybe you're already planning for the sunnier months. Perhaps, you've skipped the chill altogether with a trip to the Northern Hemisphere. If it's the latter, know that I am supremely jealous. Our latest fashion favourites carry a mix of both these approaches, because almost halfway through August, who wants to be pruning their winter wardrobes when they could be putting their pennies towards warmer times ahead? That's my own logic, at least.
Mules and slingbacks are on our minds, and if you need a more comprehensive shopping list for the latter, here's one courtesy of our production editor, Cassandra Dimitroff. It never quite hit freezing point in Sydney, so we don't think it's all that ridiculous to be wearing Capri pants or flirty cotton shorts right now. As long as your pair it with a leather jacket like the one below from Saks Potts or maybe a zip-up track jacket if you have one laying around.
For a bag big enough to carry all your existential dread, but affordable enough that it won't heighten those feelings, see this one from Paloma Wool. The silver buckle is a nice touch. Speaking of silver, we're looking for a pair of metallic kicks. If trawling resale sites for 90s Prada America's Cup sneakers sounds like hell then we suggest this pair of Mexico 66 shoes from Onitsuka Tiger. And if you're still stuck on the knee-high socks and pull-up stockings hailed by Miu Miu SS22 and FW23 respectively, then we've found the perfect source in Swedish Stockings. That's all from us this August. Enjoy!
