Laura Fantacci

IRIS is delighted to have teamed up with super stylist Laura Fantacci – of must-read ‘wearing it today’ blog, and co founder of Wardrobe Icons. In part three of our series, Laura picks her favourite knits from IRIS, and shows how to wear them with the new season’s trends.

Knitwear “ I have an obsession with jumpers. After 20 years of living in London, I now just want to be warm and comfortable! I often find that people pay very little attention to buying jumpers. Over the years, I have built up a sweater wardrobe - crew necks, scoop necks, polo necks etc. Think about what you need. Don't make the mistake of buying them too tight, which can actually make you look larger - better to take a size bigger especially with an open weave."

A.P.C. Madmoiselle Knit, ISABEL MARANT Sevan Floral Print skirt,  and IRIS Tassel Foldover bag “Burgundy is very on trend and flatters most colourings. If you're scared of wearing colour - this is a good neutral to try. It looks great with red, tan and white. the contrast of the chunky knit and delicate skirt is lovely. this look would work equally on the school run as it would in the office. I love the fringing on this bag, and it's also a really good size. It's a good bag for day - and you could swap it with a glittery clutch for an evening look."

IRIS Cashmere Roll Neck, ISABEL MARANT, Jefferey Eco Leather trousers. “Polo necks are back in fashion this season. This one is a great shape and made from super soft cashmere. it's boxy and longer at the back, which makes it perfect to go over leggings. It's a perfect wardrobe staple. Leather leggings are a great alternative to jeans. I often get asked if women in their 40's can wear them, and if they're appropriate - and I always say yes, absolutely. They give you the same versatility as jeans - and these ones have an elasticated waist so they're really comfortable. Pair them with a white shirt, a luxe cashmere jumper and flat shoes for an easy everyday look. Remember to choose matte ones if they're faux leather.”

ISABEL MARANT Dalmatian High Heel “These Isabel Marant heels are the most comfortable shoes. She does this style every season. They have a leg lengthening effect and I really like the subtle animal print.”
