Just because I'm going through a black phase doesn't mean I'm giving up my two other great style loves stripes and sequins. In my world one can never have too much of either.
And it seems I'm not alone in the sequin department as the UK goes crazy, yes crazy (and rightly so) for the sequin jacket. I sadly missed not one but two invites to see the collection (people my diary is full a month in advance). The disappointment in not going to the first and actually seeing Twiggy in the flesh was enormous. Cynic that I am over model/designer collaborations, I, to borrow a phrase, luff this 11/10.
Twiggy is styled impeccably. Women of a certain age take note, do not, I repeat, do not miss this opportunity to embrace style. Drop the floral dresses and the Per Una offerings - sorry M&S but nothing will ever convince me that range should be allowed - and get with the Twiggy collection.
At £79, the sequin jacket is a bold choice but is versatile enough to wear day or night. By day put on a stripy with jeans and flats, then move it up a gear at night changing the stripy tee for a block colour top, add a statement necklace or earrings, push the sleeves up and add high heels.
This image doesn't really do the jacket justice, as it makes it loo too rigid whereas Twiggy wears it in a more fluid fashion, but nip to M&S to take a peek or look at it online. Enjoy the images of Twiggy and the collection although I do think avoid the animal and big daisy print dress and tops like the plague, they are veering into Per Una territory.
