SS19 is here and so is our new season collection of suede and leather separates, which is why we’ve caught up with Gushlow and Cole’s Design and Creative director, Emma Gushlow to show us three different ways to wear the Suede T Shirt Dress:
My Day look
“I wear trainers to work in the studio most days, because I like the practicality and comfort when running from one job to another or standing at the design bench for long periods. So, here I’ve styled my suede dress with a pair of chunky trainers and a Gushlow and Cole Cropped Gilet in yellow curly toscana… which is actually a sneak peek from our AW19 collection!”
“I love yellow, it’s such a happy colour and not as hard to wear as many people think, the brighter the better! The navy of the dress and yellow of the gilet work perfectly with the colour detail in my trainers.”
My Work look
“This outfit is simple yet sophisticated enough to wear wear to a meeting or business lunch. I have used a black leather belt to cinch the dress in at the waist and styled it with a black chunky heeled shoe boot and statement blue earrings.”
My Weekend look
“Navy is an excellent core colour to wear with brights and for this look I have styled our suede T Shirt Dress with a pair of orange tasseled sandals and a vintage leather bag. The dress has a tie belt that I use to pull in the waist, alternatively the dress can we worn loose. Perfect for drinks with my girlfriends”.
Beginning her career in fashion at Tatler, London based stylist Martha Ward has gone on to establish a hugely successful freelance career dressing actors for the red to carpet as well as working on editorial and commercial projects across various publications including Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, BA High Life, Town & Country and ES magazine.
We caught up with Martha to show us how she styles her favourite Gushlow and Cole shearling Baby Button Shrug Scarf.
“I love the versatility of these beautiful shearling scarves. I like mine just hanging loose sometimes, or simply crossed over, and then when it’s really cold i’ll button it up so it’s close and warm around the neck. This blue is so unusual which draws in lots of compliments.”
From alpaca hand knits and down padding to tonal textures of Toscana, we’ve teamed up with personal stylist Lynne Meek of Styling Matters to show us how to wear this seasons shearling gilet.
“I’m a huge fan of layering in the Autumn. I’ve teamed my denim Knit Back Gilet with soft leather joggers, a fine knit jumper, suede boots, statement necklace and my favourite designer handbag. I’m often meeting clients for London shopping trips so i’ll be warm enough on the train platform, but not overheating in a full coat in Selfridges! The soft denim blue of the gilet looks great against the navy blue of the leather trousers, and the red adds pop. I generally stick to just two or three colours in an outfit to keep it simple but stylish.
“I love the contrast of casual clothing with a luxury piece. Adding a Gushlow and Cole Down Back Shearling Gilet with a logo tee or knit, slouchy boyfriend jeans and some star trainers is a really stylish and easy look for all day and every day.”
“As i’m often dashing in and out of shops a shearling gilet is perfect for throwing on over my outfit of the day. Once winter is here I wear my gilet over a leather biker jacket.”
