Julie Christie has one of the world’s most beautiful faces.
She was unforgettable in her film roles, as Bathsheba in Far From the Madding Crowd and Lara in Doctor Zhivago?
She is a woman that would seem to have only become more attractive with age.
This season I am having a crazy love affair with chunky knits. Julie Christie’s exquisite portrait had me imagining knitting, well almost. Knitting must be one of the most satisfying pastimes but for now I need to rediscover this craft with baby steps.
Chunky oversized sweaters look fabulous with A-line skirts or skinny pants. Textures work well when they contrast; think silk and lace worn with sumptuous woollen sweaters. If the pants are worn with a cute boot then even better.
I like the whole jangle of bracelets with the big sweater look too.
The weather has turned; I may be wearing chunky sooner than expected. xv
