Ran-Bay Wayfarers, I Love Mr Mittens knitted jumper, Cheap Monday skinny jeans, 32.4 rings and Alexandre Birman suede heels (similar suede heels available here)

This delicious piece of knitwear by I love Mr Mittens has put in the hard yards this winter. Beautifully made and insanely warm it has kept my cold-boned self warm even in the most extreme of temperatures (I’m looking at you New York). When it comes to knitwear, the bigger the better.

The Tunic

Ray-Ban Wayfarers, Acne leather jacket, Dorothy Perkins navy tunic, Balenciaga trousers and Dorothy Perkins flatform sandals

When it comes to the pieces in my wardrobe I reach for day in, day out, it’s all about simplicity and versatility. So when Dorothy Perkins asked me to pick a style hero for the season, the humble tunic dress struck a chord. An unlikely hero perhaps (and often over-shadowed by other pieces such as the leather jacket or trench), but it’s slick simplicity cannot be argued with.

Lately I’ve been throwing on my summer dressers over tailored trousers, so I figured why not apply the same rule of thumb to the tunic (the 90’s are back after all, right?).
