FASH­ION

Washed-out

Weekend Herald - Canvas - - INDEX -

With only a few weeks left be­fore the of­fi­cial start of spring, we’re look­ing at the first de­liv­er­ies of the new sea­son with a thought­ful eye. Calm­ing tones in­spired by the Earth and sun-kissed colours are the per­fect tonic to win­ter’s som­bre pal­ette; and while we’ve re­cently ex­plored sat­u­rated brights for those who err on the more ex­treme end of the colour spec­trum, washed-out colours are a great al­ter­na­tive to clas­sic black and white. Cool tones work par­tic­u­larly well on the ar­ray of light­weight linens and plush sea­sonal cash­mere — soft to the touch and light on the eyes — of­fer­ing some re­spite when you’re look­ing for some­thing to wear that’s not a busy print or too sharp in tai­lor­ing. While washed-out denim has been su­per­seded by clean-cut, raw denim in re­cent sea­sons, for the warmer months you can’t look past a pair of washed-out 70s-in­spired flares, teamed with a pair of desert-tone san­dals and a vin­tage T-shirt. It’s all that’s re­quired as you ease into the new sea­son.
