At-Home Edit: New Neutrals
Discover a curated roundup of the newest clothing and jewellery arrivals.
At a time when it’s difficult to discern who or what we’re dressing for from one day to the next, trying to pull together a good looking – and of course comfortable – outfit can feel somewhat challenging. Whether you spent the bulk of 2020 in sweatpants or not, after such a protracted (if not permanent) break from our usual routines, many of us are feeling somewhat detached from fashion and unsure of our own aesthetics. However, a new year is an ideal incentive to start over, detox your wardrobe and get back to feeling your best. If you’re having trouble recalling just what it is that makes your style, or you would like to create a capsule wardrobe, we have built a helpful guide here.
A cornerstone of any well-stocked winter capsule wardrobe is a humble knitted jumper or neutral, pair with everything cardigan, these have long been a favorite of ours and our customers, thanks to their warmth, durability and intricate cosy nature. Lately, however, these quotidian pieces have become something of a must have for all of us working and spending more time than usual at home.
For timeless pieces in luxe and extra-comfortable fabrics, consider the understated wool and cashmere blend Inka long knit pant, wear with the Cille ls knit pocket o-neck mink melange top, spun from the sustainable LENZING™ ECOVERO™ mix. If you love uplifting and bright colours, you will adore the Gry ls knit square neck pastel yellow with its warming yellow tone in organic cotton. Team your picks with an easy-going white sneaker, and add a touch a glamour with a piece of gold jewelry.
Quality fabrics and beautiful silhouettes are two things Laura, Noted’s co-founder looks for in every piece when curating a season's collection. Which is why, this frame crew neck jumper immediately caught her eye: “I’m a huge fan of a pared-back aesthetic, so the moment I saw this classic and effortlessly cool jumper, I fell instantly in love. It’s pieces like these that create collections with longevity and timelessness in mind. Easy to wear silhouettes, beautiful, quality fabrics and great fit make these pieces both functional and feminine. Laura says she will be styling these super-versatile pieces with gold jewelry by Aleyole for Zoom calls, buying meetings and working in the shop – once the world gets back to normal.
If your style is similarly subtle, look to closet staples in contemporary designs. The
Verona 2/4 sleeve puff sleeve tee makes an effortlessly cool accompaniment to everything from blue jeans to wide-leg pants. Elsewhere, – a favorite of ours – a luxe take on the classic crew neck; enhanced by design details such as flared hems, perfect for a polished yet practical staple season after season.
But no matter what form your lockdown look takes, a failsafe way to add instant kudos is by finishing it with a beautiful piece of jewellery. Whether you gravitate towards classic styles or statement designs, gold and silver jewellery provides the perfect finishing touch to any look. From white zirconia stones embedded into delicate earring and natural pearl encrusted hoops by Aleyole.
