For many, myself included, the highlight show from the SS24 collections was Louise Trotter’s debut at Carven. The look above sums up the appeal. Adhering to a less is more approach gets interesting when familiar silhouettes are introduced in new proportions then layered in varying weights and fabrics. The color palette of pale neutrals (there were beautiful pastels too) hit home as well.
Using my favorite look above as inspiration, I’m imagining fresh ways to wear the humble grey pullover. Since I won’t be jumping on the sheer trend, I’ll pair it with a skirt that has textural interest. This white pencil skirt from Vince is perfect and could become another hero piece in my closet. Square toe flats also caught my eye. A pair from Gianvito Rossi to buy now and wear all season long is in my cart. The snake print reads as a neutral and steps in when I want to punctuate an outfit with something eye catching.
Back to the humble hero though…the grey sweater. When I don’t want to wear it quite so loose, I’ll pin it up inspired by Erdem’s one and done piece. I can pair it with a full skirt and get a new look going with a nod to Prada or Bottega Veneta. And of course, tossed on with a pair of jeans and an oversized blazer is easy and timeless.
