Feminine fashion is very much on the agenda. Dresses, coats, jackets and skirts. How lovely is a nicely cut, perfectly judged suit? Not only for career-wear but ideal for smart occasions too. The Winser London Tweed fabric and indeed the garments themselves are all made in England. The English Couture-quality tweed has a light, modern texture, beautifully designed to create effortlessly chic separates.
The colour options make it possible to be co-ordinated or to mix-and-match the items. New for this month is the introduction of a black-on-black tweed which is a strong look and a new ivory tweed with touches of neutral shades to give the fabric lovely depth and richness. In our picture Yasmin Le bon wears an elegant Black Tweed Coat with the Boyfriend Jumper and the new Winser Classic Trouser, £125.
Skirt suits need to fit extremely well; the skirt can't be too long and the jacket must end at the hips, no lower. It's fun to play-up glamour and femininity; Yasmin Le Bon models the beautiful new Ivory Tweed suit with the Champagne Lauren Silk Bow and Blouse (with the detachable collar) so well.
