I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the relaxing of lockdown. I am not going to lie as much as I have enjoyed lockdown I cannot wait to put some heels on and head to a restaurant! We are so lucky being so central in London that we have been getting delivery from places like Nobu delivered for date night, but there is nothing like getting dressed up to go OUT!
I wanted to put together some of my favourite staples, as I get a lot of messages asking me which basics that I love, so have expanded on that slightly and broken it down to lots of categories.
For me the perfect bodysuit is one of the best wardrobe staples out there last summer I bought the Bottega swimsuit and wore it as a bodysuit all summer long, it sold out pretty quickly and I know a lot of you really wanted it and couldn’t get hold of it. This year they have done a few versions, I love the one shoulder version so invested in this one, again I chose the white, although it was tough call as I think black is pretty super too, but I have the bikini version in the black. The fabric on the ones I have linked is amazing and has a crinkle effect with a slight sheen to elevate it slightly (although they have also made them in normal swimsuit fabric). Please remember these are actually swimsuits so not bodysuits so they have no fastening but I love the regardless!!
BOTTEGA VENETA BODYSUITS
Linked below are some of my other favourite simple bodysuits, I love the Dodo Bar Or ones with super cool back detail and these Margiela ones are renowned for being superb first and quality and also always sell out quickly ….I have also found some lovely short sleeved Acne ones on sale.
AND THE REST…
TOPS AND JEANS
I am obsessed with Khaite right now and I love all their tops, as you will have seen on my instragram. I am also LOVING these Isabel Marant padded shoulder tees, they are quite a thick fabric so more structured than the other padded tees around which gives them an amazing shape.
If you want to treat yourself a handbag is a fab piece to invest in right now, even if we aren’t going ‘out out’ you use a handbag every time you leave the house! The ones I have linked below are bags that I feel you will stand the test of time and that you will be wearing the again next year. I absolutely love the Bottega Pouch bag and the padded Cassette I had mine last summer and I have used them non stop since. The white padded cassette is FINALLY back in stock, it has been impossible to find in this colour for over a year and it is one of my all time favourite bags – so so cool and goes with everything plus there is slight sheen on the leather so it doesn’t stain easily which was my worry on buying a white handbag.
I love my earrings, and currently favouring gold styles that are quite simple in style but with a bit of a twist, I have these Ellery ones and I love all the ones by this designer – even better they are on sale!
When I choose an accessory I always choose a style that is versatile, a belt for example that can cinch a dress and a blazer, or a simple style you can wear with jeans or throw on a dress. These Saint Laurent sunglasses are the “it” shape right now, and this pair keeps selling out but has just been restocked! I just got a pair as I LOVE them.
Love a summer shoe! Bottega are my current favs, I am loving the BV Lido in ALL the colours, but I also LOVE a classic white pump – they go with everything and are just super cool.
I love all of these dresses so much. I shot my Noa campaign in this beautiful Philosophy dress, and its gorgeous with a belt also. You will have also seen me in the white Khaite which I LOVE LOVE LOVE so much and it also comes in a top version.
