La Redoute recently offered me the chance to review some French fashion, from their own labels, and so I definitely put this outfit together with that classic image of French style in mind. The piece I chose was this gorgeous soft cashmere jumper (which is totally on sale at the moment, fyi) which when combined with a white shirt, dark blue jeans and black flats is definitely my idea of an effortless, elegant French inspired outfit.
I am finding myself drawn to more simple classic pieces like this cashmere jumper recently. Things that if cared for will last me and suit me for years to come. I think although I do idolise that effortless chic French look, I still struggle with finding the balance between simplicity and boring. I need to find a way of getting a little bit of English eccentricity in there too!
