As the seasons change and winter blues settle in, there is no better way to brighten up the wardrobe than with preppy classics. Structured silhouettes and crisp contours are revisited this season, but this time with an edgier attitude - think grungey elements like exaggerated platforms and standout tartan prints. The polished profiles of Oxfords are upsized with chunky soles, balancing old-school lace-up charm with a contemporary boldness. To incorporate colour into your usual monochromatic, neutral-toned looks, the distinctive patterning of red tartan will refresh muted palettes while adding festive cheer. Sport it on the outsoles - as seen on the Triana chunky Oxfords - or let tartan shoe lining peek out for a subtle pop of red. If oversized styles are not for you, opt for Mary Jane flats. Wear the dainty crossover straps with scrunched-up legwarmers for a touch of youthful nostalgia.
