For October, we're left to our own devices. It's been tricky dressing for the weather; one day she's up, the other... you get soaked to the bone while legging it into the office. Where last month, our fashion favourites paid tribute to the September runways and were fueled by the joy of spring's arrival, this month the tumultuous state of the world has highlighted fashion's inanity. How can we think of getting dressed when justice is elusive, bombs raze hospitals, and half the country wants to bury their head in the sand? I have no answer.
But we still have to get dressed, even if it's just the uniform that gets you from A to B.
So for October, we're keeping it simple. Think jeans and a nice top. The rest of the bits and bobs should be comfortable, practical, and if nothing else, spark joy. Whether that's the Carhartt WIP collaboration with New Balance, for a pair of sneakers that are as sturdy as they are supportive, or the coquettish embroidery on this Sandy Liang Knope Top. The RUSSH Full Look Policy caps will help you feel anonymous and lowkey, like Leonardo DiCaprio on a mission to avoid the paparazzi. While this Misu A Barbe crochet bucket hat will brighten your day, even when the weather's in one of its erratic moods.
Below, find our fashion favourites for October. If we have to get dressed, these pieces make it feel worth the effort.
