The way a wardrobe staple can be whipped into shape with artful layering, the meticulously edited selection of new-season buys, the awe-inspiring supermodel photo shoots… If you've ever dreamt of swiping a look straight from the pages of Vogue and pasting it straight into your wardrobe, you aren't alone. You also won't be alone in celebrating the fact that what was once a fashion fantasy is now a reality, thanks to the luxury e-commerce site Style.com.
From demonstrating how to cinch a bustier over ticker-striped shirting to making entire outfits shoppable on the spot, Style.com has become something of an essential go-to for fashion girls in the know. To the uninitiated (where have you been?), it's essentially the online shopping arm of Vogue, a coolly curated selection of editor-approved designer pieces you can buy instantly. We're talking about major names here: Vetements, Chloé and Marni for starters, plus exclusive items you won't find elsewhere and a host of super-niche labels worth bragging about. (Hint: Name-drop Petar Petrov ASAP.)
Style.com's chic new-season campaign shoot showcases all of the latest trends and styling tricks, and—guess what?—we were lucky enough to see it first in order to bring you the high-fashion lowdown. Keep reading to see how the Style.com and Vogue teams envisage spring, and shop directly from the pitch-perfect outfits modelled below.
If the Vogue team is down with wearing silver sequins Monday to Sunday, so are we. Sportif accents—like a layered motif tee or a lightweight anorak—are the key to making high-octane sparkle work throughout the daylight hours.
In 2017 there's a difference between wearing your clothes and really wearing your clothes. By the latter, we mean remixing classic, relied-upon pieces into new, unchartered ensembles. The easiest place to start? With a corset or bustier top layered over a shirt. Add a shrugged-off jacket, and you couldn't be more au courant.
A bohemian maxi dress is to summer what a black coat is to winter: absolutely essential. But the trend evolves each year, and for 2017 the look is less hippie and far more refined. Think lace, silk, leather, tassels—boho 2.0 is all in the luxe details.
Vogue's stylist on this shoot, contributing editor Kate Phelan, knows precisely how a brilliantly blouson blouse should be treated. When your jumbo sleeves take up centre stage of an outfit, it's best to let everything else be subtle, neutral and understated.
From one-shouldered dresses to frilled hems that dart across the body in diagonal lines, much of S/S 17 spins around asymmetry. Ripe for layering, keep the palette and detailing to a minimum for this look to appear completely effortless.
