Guest Stylist LAURA FANTACCI Knitwear Special

Laura picks of her favourite knits at IRIS

“I have an obsession with jumpers. After 20 years of living in London, I now just want to be warm and comfortable! I often find that people pay very little attention to buying jumpers. Over the years, I have built up a sweater wardrobe crew necks, scoop necks, polo necks etc. Think about what you need. Don’t make the mistake of buying them too tight, which can actually make you look larger – better to take a size up, especially with an open weave.”

A.P.C. Burgundy Knit, ISABEL MARANT Sevan Floral skirt:


“Burgundy is very on trend and flatters most colourings. If you’re scared of wearing colour -this is a good neutral to try. It looks great with red, tan and white. The contrast of the chunky knit and delicate skirt is lovely. This look would work equally well on the school run as it would in the office. I love the fringing on this bag, and its also a really good size. It’s a good bag for day and you could swap it with a glittery clutch for an evening look.”

Iris Cashmere polo neck, Isabel Marant Eco leather leggings:


“Polo necks are back in fashion this season. This one is a great shape and made from super soft cashmere. It’s boxy and longer at the back, which makes it perfect to go over leggings. It’s a perfect wardrobe staple. Leather leggings are a great alternative to jeans. I often get asked if women in their 40’s can wear them, and if they’re appropriate – and I always say yes, absolutely. They give you the same versatility as jeans and these ones have an elasticated waist so they’re really comfortable. Pair them with a white shirt, a luxe cashmere jumper and flat shoes for an easy everyday look. Remember to choose matte ones if they’re faux leather.”
