Clever layering has always been an American tic – but the Parisians were out in force to disprove that working theory over Paris Fashion Week. Take pointers from the pavements with Vogue‘s edit of the best layering tricks to try now. Take a tonal approach Doesn’t tan look great head to toe? And doesn’t it look easy? Throw in some robin egg blue for good measure and you’re flying. Introduce leather A conker-brown leather shirt adds a tough edge to hyper-feminine plissé. Polonecks with everything Still not convinced of the poloneck’s obvious charms (of which thermal insulation is but one)? Watch the beatnik scene in 1957’s Funny Face, let Audrey Hepburn work her magic, and then think of one outfit that wouldn’t work with a black poloneck as its base. Told you. Add a tangerine splash The unexpected splash on the pavements of Paris? Tangerine, pumpkin and highlighter orange. Goes surprisingly well with utilitarian khaki. Reconsider the coatigan A knitted coatigan was once the school gate uniform of the Notting Hill-dwelling yummy mum, but it’s had a hyper-chic make-over. Throw it over the season’s natural fabrics – linen, cotton, hemp – and wear with polished accessories. Don’t forget the magic puff If you don’t own a slim-fit puffer jacket, the time to invest is now. The ultimate wardrobe binder, you’ll find yourself slipping it under your Burberry trench, Céline blazer or Prada brocade cocktail coat at every available opportunity.
