We are having a mini heatwave in London this week; it’s unseasonably hot for autumn, yet the days begin chilly and end chilly. As a result, this week’s newsletter focuses on cardigans, which are a key layer to pop on when it’s cool, and easy to peel off when you’re warming up. I’m also a big fan of jackets and blazers and at some point I’ll do a little edit on these, too.
Personal Styling + Home Styling
There is always something new to see and read on my blog, especially Instagram. As a multi-award-winning personal stylist in London and Surrey, I cover a wide range of things that interest me, focused mainly around the following: exploring interiors + art + architecture + style + fashion + travel + food + things that touch my imagination daily.
With autumn here, knitwear may be at the forefront of your mind. I really like to take care of my clothes and especially my woollies. A few years ago I had to throw away my entire, beautiful, knitwear collection due to a moth infestation. It was upsetting as I had built it up over many years and the cost of replacing it was huge. So, I thought it was timely to write a blog about keeping your knits in pristine condition throughout the year, and below are my top tips. After all, if you’re anything like me and love wearing cashmere, you’ll know it’s an investment buy and will want to maximise its cost-per-wear value.
The biggest threat to your woollies is moths, so let’s tackle them first.
There are many jumpsuits to choose from and I would go for one which you can wear in lots of different ways: mum-on-the-run; power-dressing for work; a night out; and a special event, such as a wedding. In the image above, I’ve styled my new Baujken black ‘Emory’ jumpsuit three ways. It’s 100% lyocell, which means it’s a breathable, soft fabric with a lovely drape which feels comfortable on. I like the texture of the weave, too. Currently available in all sizes, I’ve sized up. It’s £159, but you’ll get 20% off with code FERONCLARKSTYLE20
Industries across the world will be dipping into their blue dye pots following Pantone’s annual colour of the year announcement at the beginning of December. This year, it’s quite simply, classic blue. A shade that sits between our own true blue and royal blue.
If I had a penny for every time my mother-in-law said to me “Don’t wear black, with your skin tone, you look much better in colour”, I would be rich.
Watch this space! I got my first watch when I was thirteen years old. It was a Timex and I wore it every day to school; it was my most treasured possession. Growing up, money was tight and my parents’ priorities were our basic needs – food, clothing and shelter; there were no luxuries, […]
So many of you have asked me about winter coats, so I’ve put together this video to show you my eight coats and how and why they work for me. I hope it helps you choose the perfect winter coat, but also other coats which will work all year round. Try and resist the temptation to buy a coat just because it’s on sale; it’s important to buy less and wear more.
Why do we wear make-up? Hello, this is my first blog about make-up but felt it was a good time to pen something. As part of my colour consultation service I do a mini express make-up lesson and I’m staggered by what I hear and see sometimes. I just wanted to share some commonly […]
