FM40 STYLE | APRÉS-SKI




APRÉS-SKI



Some of you may be off ski-ing this half term (lucky you) and to help you with your Après-ski look Wardrobe Icons did a really good piece and they are the right guys to look for inspiration as both Laura Fantacci and Deborah Brett always look AMAZING on the slopes. 

However, I did think £114 for a velvet hair bow a little excessive so with Wardrobe Icons style sheet my inspiration I thought I would look for cheaper alternatives.




CLICK TO SHOP


Similar pieces to Laura's edit, but all slightly more affordable. The velvet hair bow can be purchased from the wonderful Esty and at £10.50 is far more affordable than £114! You can even make your own classic hair bow with ribbon from good old John Lewis's haberdashery department. Whilst, the Gucci's knitted headbands are the cutest things I have seen for ages, the price tag maybe not. 



SHOP ACCESSORIES





Knitwear is an essential on a ski holiday and perfect for the evenings worn with leather (or leather look leggings .... still loving my Next ones). I have kept my picks quite retro in keeping with the Wardrobe Icons edit and I have found a cheaper alternative to the Ganni rainbow striped jumper (here) whilst not compromising on quality. I certainly wouldn't comprise with one jumper and would definitely splash out on an iconic Bella Freud for a little Ski Chalet evening statement.
Oh, and that Madeleine Thompson onesie I have found on the Outnet is £190 cheaper than Wardrobe Icon's pick. 



SHOP KNITWEAR





Another evening option is a check shirt or a classic denim shirt accessorised as Laura says with that velvet hair bow. I have tried to find similar and cheaper again, of course to the gorgeous Isabel Marant's red check shirt she picked in her edit. 



SHOP SHIRTS





Footwear, very important on a ski holiday and I am not talking those uncomfortable ski boots! Snow boots are now quite fashionable and Isabel Marant would be choice for those with the budget ..... &OtherStories have the quite brilliant homage, which now come in three different colours.
If staying in your hotel by the roaring fire enjoying your fondue or goulash then there would be no need for snow boots and a versatile pair of flats would be perfect ..... who needs Gucci when you can have these at a fraction of the price.



SHOP FOOTWEAR





I have noticed on Instagram the ski look is going back in time and going all retro with a modern feel to it (Pefect Moment ski wear being the "perfect' example) and nothing more retro is a little neck scarf and whilst we would all love a silk Hermes scarf tied around our neck or wrist ..... try Aspinal of London silk scarf for a more affordable option. 

 Happy ski-ing everyone.

FM40 STYLE | THE JACKET THAT NEVER DATES




A JACKET THAT NEVER DATES



L's favourite bedtime story is the Coco Chanel book from the Little People Big Dreams collection (it's mine too) and it's funny to think that Coco's designers were considered daring in the days of corsets and long dresses, but how they have stood the test of time. 

A Chanel tweed jacket is the dream item for me ...... just stunning. 





You don't have to break the bank to obtain a beautiful boucle, tweed jacket French brands such as IRO, Maje and of course Isabel Marant do fabulous jackets.  The FashionJackson here wearing her IRO Shavani and Carene jacket (I have the carene jacket in blue and totally recommend)





KEEP IT ON TREND



Keep the look modern by wearing your jacket with pale denim or over a slogan tee,  I still love this particular slogan tee...




IMITATION IS THE SINCEREST FORM OF FLATTERY



Zara is usually the master of the Chanel Jacket homage, I have a black one that is years old ..... I think maybe 14 years old to be precise that I picked up in the Zara sale for about £19. Other high street stores are also delivering great Chanel-esq jackets, this one from River Island is a beauty.

FM0 STYLE | FRILLY COLLARS




F R I L L Y  C O L L A R S



Do watch Sheerluxe live? ..... Oh I love it. I mainly like looking to see what the cool girls at SheerLuxe wear, especially Lou their Fashion editor (she has such good taste) who is partial, to a white frilly collar. 

Georgie herself is also often found in a white frilly blouse and in a few episodes is wearing this particular frilly collar Sandro jumper - that is on sale may I add.  




This look can be achieved with an old navy crew neck jumper or a plain grey sweatshirt you may already have and a detachable collar. 

I have one of these detachable collars and it has come in handy recently, mine was gifted from the lovely Lucinda, The London Mummy who has a great little online shop TLM.edit. The TLM.edit have a small selection of different ones, mine is this one. Cos also do some good bib collars or mock collars as they like to call them,  here

 I have included a few others I have found in my edit below.
