The Tweed Jacket: Steal Her Style

The Tweed Jacket: Steal Her Style

Had you forgotten the tweed jacket?

I am guilty of losing the tweed to the simple wools, cotton and cashmere but after another The Crown binge watch I think tweed is very worthy of our attention.

Not all tweeds are those I would include in my wardrobe – but the “today’s” version is a fabulous wear with many of our ever-faithful essentials.

For me, there have always been two styles of tweeds.

Festive Fever: Accessorise And Go

Festive Fever: Accessorise And Go

 

Countdown to the festive season is well and truly on.

My capacity for new and fabulous ideas is getting stretched. It is that time of year.

After many thought-provoking hours to find the perfect Secret Santa gifts, the fun presents for friends and family and trying to pack for the holidays, I’m running out of ‘outfit’ ideas.


When in doubt, my mind jumps to accessories.

Jodie Foster: A White Christmas

Jodie Foster: A White Christmas


What to wear for a white Christmas?

And I’m not thinking about snow.


Jodie Foster worked it out well ahead of time when she appeared in this month’s Harper’s Bazaar.


She looks so fabulous and the white jacket is stunning in its simplicity.

Why have I forgotten the brilliance of the white jacket?

Cate Blanchett: Steal Her Style

Cate Blanchett: Steal Her Style


Cate Blanchett has a style to steal.

I’d really like to steal her porcelain complexion but as that’s not possible style must be my focus.



This photograph of Cate Blanchett has all the style elements I admire.

The simple black dress – check. The gold bracelets paired on the wrists – check and the ruby red lips – check.

Another Beautiful Face: Meryl Streep

Another Beautiful Face: Meryl Streep


Meryl Streep has many faces.

Her own is very beautiful and yet she has the magnificent talent of changing in front of the camera before our eyes.


She is who she plays.


The Post, her latest and the apparently greatest film is on top of my list. Her role as Katherine Graham, first female publisher of the major American newspaper, Washington Post is by all accounts a sterling performance.

I can’t wait.

What She Wants: “A Rosy Glow”

What She Wants: “A Rosy Glow”

 

My obsession with a rosy glow continues.

I am seeing pink everywhere and I feel the need for pink, everywhere.

Interiors, wardrobe and accessories are calling to me in all shades of rose – especially the soft ballerina tones.

I can’t help it; I’m smitten.

 

Why not colour code and have a colour crush? There are worse obsessions.

Softly Softly: How To Care For Cashmere

Softly Softly: How To Care For Cashmere


Cashmere season is here.

At least where I am. It’s seriously getting nippy and all I want to do is cosy up in cashmere everything.


I hope you managed to take advantage of the sales last weekend and add some cashmere to your wardrobes.

Cashmere is wonderfully soft and delicious to wear but it requires maintenance. What doesn’t?

It doesn’t really matter whether you shop The Row for your cashmere or stock up at Uniqlo, the looking after is the same.



Like pearls, cashmere is a pleasure to wear well and wear often.
