" brrrrr its turned cold hasn't it?"
seems to be the question on everyone's chapped lips this week. Yes indeed it has. And an invite to The Cassette Club in Shoreditch tomorrow night is making me shiver just thinking about leaving the house without my daughters pink bodywarmer, i.e the item of clothing that I have styled with every outfit this week. Lets face it though, a Reebok puffy sleeveless jacket meant for a kid ain't gonna cut it in trendy East London. It is going to have to be one of my beloved Bella Freud intarsia knits that saves the day. So this week lets look at the best of the creative cashmere out there and work out some warm but wicked party outfits so that you can put down your Down. Firstly one of my most coveted knitwear labels Kind. How cool is the pink Bonnie cardy complete with intarsia hip gun? wear that with a below knee tight shiny pencil skirt and some fierce heels and you are good to go. Or the Snake Named Irving scarf. That would look great coiled around the neck with an asymmetric or strapless dress.
At Antoni and Alison the animal print with pink bow jumper is crying out for a tulip skirt and ankle boots combo and wear their Breton and rosette number with a pair of teeny tiny battered denim hot pants, tights and some cute mary janes. Or go for that good old combination of cashmere and PVC. Bella Freud Ginsberg is God or J'taime Jane jumper, Les Chiffoniers on the legs and top off with a little vintage netted hat. And just for fun the Agent Provocateur knitted corset. Wear of course, with some stockings, heels and a fur. Tarty yes ,but couldn't resist mentioning it and it's a look that will certainly generate some heat wherever you go.
