FRENCH GIRL WANNABE
The French girl is once again flexing her stylish muscles (did she ever stop?) and any titbit we can beg, steal, borrow and scrimp from her effortless repertoire is a wardrobe win. A Chanel-esque neck-tie (from Mango – is it just me or are these guys really nailing it this season?) a palette of black-white-denim and an androgynous loafer. The French make it look so easy. But it's not; rather it's all in the details. Swap jeans for a wide leg trouser at dusk for post-office minimal input maximum output.
And a point to the Italians for the major resurgence of their iconic logo belt – this one is my Mum's from last time round, proving the good stuff never really goes away (and is worth holding onto).
