Wearbility is often deemed the kiss of death by designer standpoints, but in the current economic climate, designers are quickly beginning to realise that creating an accessible and wearable collection cannot hurt. Margaret Howell is a great example of that idea working. Each season, any piece of her collection can easily fit into any wardrobe, and she continues to create simple pieces that we all want to wear.
Polo dresses came in royal blue and belted, teamed under tweed blazers, and styled with hats that featured throughout in navy and neutral shades. Single-breasted winter coats came with velvet turn-up trousers and flat shoes, and dark leather coats came with fur collars styled with over-the-knee skirts in navy and a simple plaid shirt. I loved a thick cable-knit jumper that nipped in at the waist with a thick brown belt and matched with a sheer navy skirt. A burgundy corduroy skirt, teamed with a white shirt, brown jumper and navy jacket just worked.
