Detail of the day the preppy jumper trick

Natasha Goldenberg has been adding a somewhat humble flourish to her Milan Fashion Week outfits: a jumper slung across her shoulders.

Radical, we know. The preppy twist, commonly associated with Sloane Rangers and the school uniform of old Etonians, has found itself carefully positioned on head-to-toe Prada.

When the look already comprises a matching checked skirt and jacket there really was no need for the added knitted layer. But look at the prim, school-girlish flourish the tomato red layer gives!

Fast forward to the final day of Milan Fashion Week, and a grey cable knit crew-neck sat neatly next to her moss green coat. A quick glance and this look might seem to give off an ‘off-duty weekend’ air, but, in fact, the jumper played the perfect preppy foil to a pair of £800 Vetements jeans. The jeans that the editors self-prescribed as their AW16 show uniform.

While fellow editors Miroslava Duma and Veronika Heilbrunner have been wearing their denim with simple t-shirts, the Russian editor set herself apart from the pack, by riffing off the wardrobe of a Hampshire Mum.We’re not dictating that you invest in extra woollen sweaters.
