Caggie Dunlop – A winter masterclass

January 3rd, 2012


Some girls just know how to dress for the really cold weather. I can’t claim to be one of them. I don’t really like wearing trousers all that much, always feel overly warm in a winter coat, and I keep loosing gloves. Which is why sometimes I require a masterclass in the art of Winter dressing. Watching The Made in Chelsea Christmas special a few days ago, I got one from Caggie Dunlop.

Yes, the pouting one seems to have winter dressing down to a tee! She can do dressed down in utility style jackets and jeans, and dressed up in the most amazing winter cashmere cape (courtesy of Hayley Menzies!)  I’ve seen this side of Narnia. She knows how to rock a hat without looking like a teapot under a cosy, or some sort of Artful Dodger. And she has made a snug furry coat a part of her daytime and evening wardrobe, a great way to make your wardrobe work for you, especially if you own a Cossack style fur hat for that Dr Zhivago look.

So, onto the clothes. Caggie has been spotted wearing the gorgeous fur coat both in episodes of Made in Chelsea, and out and about in London. This is a look that is easy to replicate, fur coats are  everywhere on the High Street, and vintage ones can be picked up cheaply in charity shops (I paid just £5 for mine).

Caggie also wore the exquisite cashmere hooded cape during the Christmas Finland trip. This is from Hayley Menzies and is currently available in the January sale for £224, a saving of £96. This is a beautiful luxury buy, with more than a touch of fairy princess about it. Caggie is not the first of the Made in Chelsea girls to be spotted wearing Hayley Menzies goodies,Binky has also been spotted wearing a monochrome shawl from the same company.

As well as fur, Caggie went for a more boyish look when she wore a parka style jacket at the Natural History Museum’s ice rink. Again, this is a very popular look at the moment, with parka’s being warm, practical and waterproof. They also add a touch of ‘Modrophenia’ cool to any outfit.

If you loved Caggie’s fur hat, how about this very similar one from Firetrap at USC. I think this is a really close match.

The final scene in the Made in Chelsea Christmas special was a special party for all the gang, featuring fake snow and a pretty awful version of ‘The 12 days of Christmas’. Caggie wore a great slouch front jumpsuit from one of her favourite retailers, Gorgeous Couture. Caggie wore a black version, which I can’t find an image of, but the suit is still available in black, blush and Khaki, and is currently reduced to £174.
