"Fashion, turn to the left
Fashion, turn to the right
We are the goon squad and we're coming to town"
~ David Bowie
Few things look better with a pair of jeans than a Bella Freud cult knit; her jumpers are quite simply the coolest, most stylish, most rock and roll of all jumpers. The Designer draws her inspiration from some of fashion and music’s most enduring and iconic stars, from Jane Birkin to David Bowie to Anita Pallensberg, and the result is a brand that, season after season, produces fashions most coveted jumpers.
This bright, sunshiny yellow sweater is from Bella Freud's AW17 collection. One of her best ever collections, it was full of unexpected colours for that time of year, ballet pink, and sunshiny yellow; gorgeous knits that slip effortlessly into every modern girls wardrobe. This fantastic colour brightens up even the most gloomy Winters day, and the 'Fashion' intarsia emblazoned across the front is me to a tee.
I teamed my jumper with a new pair of jeans. I can't believe I have found another pair that fits me so well. J Brand has become my brand; it is the one brand I know will work for me every single time. I'd been searching for a lighter blue denim and this pair is perfection. They have that low-rise I always look for (I have a short torso so high waisted jeans will never look good on me), and distressed details throughout, for a well-worn look. They are technically a cropped style but being such a shortie the jeans are the perfect full length on me. No alterations needed at all!
This bright, cheery ensemble is very easily dressed up or down. I kept things relatively laid back though, by adding a pair of 60s inspired flats by UK brand Ops & Ops, and the most coveted sunglasses of the season from Rayban.
