NEAT & CLEAN
London: Margaret Howell keeps it simple again this season, but smartly turns away from Fall’s dowdy direction in favor of a crisp, nautical-inspired look. Basics like relaxed-fit cotton shirt dresses, slouchy trouser suits and boatneck tunics were the very building blocks of a minimalist wardrobe, each ensemble infused with a demurely sweet charm. Jaunty sailor caps and t-strap sandals created a childlike mood, as did denim apron dresses and grade-school overalls with rolled cuffs. Slim tapered trousers were flattering, but Howell’s cropped wide-leg pants had a difficult proportion that could have been edited from her neatly executed presentation.—Nina Stotler
