Styling the ‘it’ sweatshirt of the season…
There are some items that are destined to be a fashion headliner as soon as they hit the runway: the Burberry Poncho, the ‘Parental Advisory’ Alexander Wang jumper, the Celine sneaker. Mr Riccardo Tisci understands how fashion frenzy works and this Bambi sweatshirt caused somewhat of a mania.
I caught the Bambi bug and literally sprinted to Browns store when I was told they have it in! Never did I imagine that everyone world would be lusting over a jumper but its oversized fit and scuba material with it eye catching print make it another great example of what a designer sweatshirt should look like. I was worried that it will be a one off thing and won’t be wearable the following year but the Bambi is still popular and is one of those iconic pieces that will always have a place in my wardrobe.
The Bambi can be styled in different ways; wear it with a belt and bare legs, sheer full skirt for the evening or leather trousers and bright courts. As its getting pretty cold outside I decided to wear tights and a shirt underneath for extra comfort (a crisp white shirt from either Thomas Pink or Asos are great for layering). Finally I added a pair of suede wedge ankle boots (similar at Whistles and L.K Bennett) and threw on a grey wool coat with a fur collar. Grey is an ideal alternative to the usual black and goes with everything, here are my top picks from French Connection, MSGM, New Look and Max Mara.
