5 STEPS TO EFFORTLESS MORNING DRESSING
Offering a complete wardrobe of versatile - yet playful - outfits, AND/OR is a modern, updated take on capsule dressing. So here are our 5 steps to building a wardrobe that works for you.
1. IT STARTS WITH DENIM
Jeans are the cornerstone of any wardrobe and offer the building blocks to cope with nearly any dress code. With a full range of distinct styles to suit every occasion, the denim collection features boyfriend to skinny, flared to cropped cuts.
Some of the key styles include the Abbot Kinney Skinny - an elegant, polished staple which will take you from dawn to dusk. The Venice Beach boyfriend - cut more like a girlfriend style than a masculine, low slung variation is another no-fuss addition which will nail off-duty chic every day of the week. Another no-brainer is the Silverlake Straight which is reliably relaxed, yet pulled together enough to work with a blazer.
2. FOOTWEAR IS KEY
Once you’ve decided on your denim foundation, shoes come next. From a selection of ankle boots which will work with every denim cut - check out the suede Western heel or the flat ponyskin style - to a range of slip-on flat sandals and espadrilles that will see you through to winter, every base is covered.
Of course, there are some occasions that require you to take your style up a notch, so AND/OR have created block heel strappy sandals to take you from the office to a party and upgraded stiletto pumps which you might just pop into your handbag and swap out when you’re leaving the office.
3. EASY-BREEZY TOPS
Curating a selection of easy to wear T-shirts, blouses and knits should be a priority for anyone looking to make morning dressing go that bit smoother. If it’s a weekend look, or you’re having a casual day in the office, nothing beats a quality T-shirt or easy to wear Breton stripe. If there’s still a chill in the air, choose a top or beautifully embroidered peasant blouse with your jeans - finish with a heel and you’ll be ready for anything.
4. PLAY WITH YOUR PALETTE
We all know about black, white and neutrals, but you can create a totally complementary wardrobe without relying on a monochromatic palette. The collection features flattering shades of olive, primrose, coral and camel - which work seamlessly together, but never feel uninspired.
5. COLLECT YOUR TROPHIES
While AND/OR offers a selection of interchangeable staples, a perfectly versatile wardrobe also needs some stand-out statement pieces to really add that injection of personality.
Whether it’s a Stevie Nicks inspired floral dress, a tapestry jacket inspired by Morocco’s souks or an embroidered parka which cinches at the waist, AND/OR provides countless hero pieces which add playful and personal touches to your wardrobe.
