How To Layer Like Lauren.

Few films have shaped my fashion aesthetic quite like American Gigolo.

Lauren Hutton's soft layers, neutral palette, woven clutches (early Bottega Venetaand Armani) and super fine jewellery are my definition of effortless, sexy dressing.

Her look typified the American Sportgenre and has become a modern classic.

It is the gold standard for polished.

Creating a capsule wardrobe around this look is pretty easy. The foundation pieces are: unstructured trench tan coat, denim shirt, white cotton shirt, dark denim high-waisted jeans, cashmere jumper, black blazer, cream or navy trousers.

But make them quality buys. The magic to this look is that it feelsexpensive.

You'll be amazed at just how many looks you can create with these pieces and then you can accessorise to the period with a coloured clutch, tan shoulder bag and Ray-Bans.
