Knot trickyThursday, November 19 2015
While the sweater-scarf remains a directional technique to pile on the layers, it is by no means the only way to make use of your sleeves this Fall (God forbid arm-through-hole is the only way you wear yours these days!).
To cut the Gordian knot, you will need to start practicing your ties. No need to travel all the way back to ancient Greece. The 90s will suffice.
Elevate a regular dress to the realm of high fashion in less time than it takes to master the shoe-lace knot. By my calculations, you won’t even need an extra knit; only Joseph’s sell-out Elie dress—an old flame reborn from the ashes of the label’s covetable archive. Its clever inbuilt waist-tie will allow you to look the part without inheriting a Kardashian-esque break-the-internet sort of bum in the process.
Colour-wise, I currently find myself in a grey state of mind, but feel free to adapt to any neutral that tickles your fancy.
Knot so tricky in the end, eh?
