Milan fashion week street: It’s all about the statement coat.

How radical to see them all being worn. Sign of the times hashtag-commonsense.

The Dirty Shirt x

The true version of sexy isn’t bandeau dresses and containment, in both the physical and metaphorical sense.  It’s suggestion and just the right number of buttons left undone. And what better way to achieve that than with the humble shirt?

Flashback x

They say the true cycle of fashion is thirty years.  It seems a lot quicker than that to me…but maybe that’s because time is slipping through my fingers at an ever increasing rate.  I can certainly remember this micro-trends first outing back in the eighties.  The key then was vintage, naturally well-worn ripped mens’ 501s with classic black fishnets and either DMs or pointed flats.

(As someone who knows: The larger meshes and little toes never mix.  Soz).

Weather update in London: Drab, grey, definitely cooler than December but still not cuttingly cold – not a true frost to be seen, instead lots of rain, puddles and mud.  It’s when I miss the twinkling lights of Christmas and long for spring – which is still a good six weeks away.

Clothes are still transitional – I wore my big winter jumper for the first time today, but that’s probably more because we have no heating as the boiler is being moved.  To go out, all I needed was a light wool jacket  – which sums up the weirdness of a winter that’s never progressed: It’s a time of mashing up opposites – skinny jeans with giant cardigans, long wool coats with no socks….floaty skirts and enormous jumpers.

Just keep a brolly handy.
