THE RE­TURN OF REAL-LIFE DRESS­ING

S/S ’19: The less-is-more wardrobe is back.

Maybe #metoo and #time­sup made the em­pow­er­ment of women hard to ig­nore. Maybe there has been way too much fo­cus on the young and on street-wear cul­ture. Maybe it’s the re­al­i­sa­tion that pro­vid­ing real-life so­lu­tions is as rel­e­vant as cre­at­ing It things for so­cial me­dia. Maybe it’s the Meghan Markle ef­fect – even a duchess doesn’t need a more-is-more wardrobe. Maybe it’s just that Phoebe Philo has left a vacuum. Or maybe it’s all of the above.

What’s def­i­nitely not maybe: a sea change for S/S ’19, where fash­ion goes back to be­ing some­thing that brings us joy and con­fi­dence while sim­pli­fy­ing our lives (like Co’s belted num­ber here), and not an or­ches­trated ex­er­cise for a photo op or look­ing cool. Y’know, the sim­pler things that all women – even in­flu­encers – can get be­hind.
