For this episode of my Fashion Maths series, I've been playing with mixing up prints, fabrics and textures for an eclectic look. I love the idea of wearing a faux fur jacket, which is usually so glamourous and evening appropriate, back to worn denim and slouchy knitwear. I think this could work really well, especially for those cold, dry days in winter where a lot of layers are required!
A navy jumper is a classic and it was with that in mind that I invested in this cashmere number from Topshop Boutique. I still managed to be thrifty, though; holding out for the sales and picking it up for around £40. The grade of cashmere perhaps isn't as good as my Whistles pieces but it's still very warm and cosy. It looks great with a shirt underneath too.
I've talked about these girlfriend jeans before, I picked them up on impulse just before I started the capsule wardrobe project. They were probably one of the last things I bought quite mindlessly because they were reduced and I definitely had no need for any more jeans, but I really like the style and even though they are quite light, I've worn them quite a lot through my autumn capsule. I think they'll really come into their own in the summer months, but they still work well for now.
The leopard print loafers are so old, but again, the ultimate classic, and despite their age (and the amount I've worn them!) they still look really good and again just add more of an edge to a look like this that perhaps a plain black loafer wouldn't bring. I'm not sure where I would even begin looking to replace these; I've never seen any as nice the whole time I've had these ones!
