Sundays are my day off. I don’t want to do anything but read the Sunday Times Style over a croissant and a coffee, walk in Richmond Park and cook a lovely roast. I don’t want to try too hard with what I’m wearing and I certainly don’t want to wear heels. But does that mean I totally give up on looking stylish? Absolutely not! And you shouldn’t either. Here are my top tips for Sunday cool without having to try…
Come spring cream Converse trainers are my Sunday faves but with the weather set to perma frost I opt for something with a little more tog. My regular clients know I am not a fan of Uggs. So what are the options for these cold days? Sorrel boots are about the cosiest and most practical footwear around, and yet they have a sense of Alaskan chic about them which I just love. Invest in a pair of these and you will never know cold toes again.
If you’re desperate to get some spring into your wardrobe then you can work in some bright jeans to your look now. I love these pink numbers from gap. They will look fab and fun tucked in to your winter boots and when the weather finally warms up you will be bang on-trend in brights and heels.
If you’re going bright on the bottom then layer up with neutral tones on top. Natural fibres keep you much warmer than man-made and I always advise my clients to invest in the best where they can. Johnstons of Elgin is my best kept cashmere secret. They only use the highest quality cashmere and their collection has a modern take on classic looks.
Keep the chill out with a smart but casual jacket. These padded coats from Joules keep the wind out, are super cosy when layered up but are still light enough to wear through spring. I swear by mine and always find the feminine cut ultra-flattering.
Top your look off with a cosy faux fur head band and you’ve got your Sunday style nailed. Smart but laid-back, stylish but low effort, Sunday stroll anyone?
