Suki Waterhouse is one of the most iconic models working today. She has the sort of looks – doe eyed, long blonde hair and beestung lips, that bring to mind Jean Shrimpton at the height of the 1960s. She is also famous for her relationship with Hollywood actor Bradley Cooper, and now she has been chosen as the face of New Look’s Autumn/Winter fashion campaign for 2016/7.
Suki looks amazing in the ad campaign, and has also chosen an edit of her favourites from the current collection. The collection cleverly combines pieces that will work throughout Autumn/Winter as every day pieces, the boyfriend coat in this season’s very popular khaki shade, a range of trousers and skinny jeans, plaid shirts that bring to mind the very best of early 90s grunge fashion, and feminine tops and blouses with frills that will team well with both jeans, or fitted skirts for a casual, or more dressy look.
There are also dressier pieces that will work in the run up to Christmas (yes it is that time of year again, although we are promised a bit of an Indian Summer and a heatwave this week.) The dark green leather look mini skirt and the rust sateen cami top are really great wardrobe pieces that will be so hard working in your wardrobe – imagine that cami under a tuxedo style jacket and cigarette pants for a YSL Le Smoking inspired look. Or team the leather look skirt with a sleeveless black polo neck for a 60s inspired look – all smokey eyes and bouffant hair.
The great thing is that the pieces are so affordable – the sateen top, which is on my hit list, is just £9.99, and the fabulous khaki coat is another steal at less than £40. I think New Look have come up trumps once again with this collection. No wonder it has Suki’s approval.
