|Jumper: £70, Marques’Almeida x Topshop.
Orange and pink bag charm: Marques/Almeida x Topshop.
Die-hard fashionistas will have heard of design duo Marques’Almeida, but perhaps not everyone. Topshop’s latest collaboration is much more underground (and way cooler, in my opinion), supporting more emerging talent.

The Topshop collaboration takes reference to its runway collection, featuring its signature frayed denim, bright faux fur and oversized, slouchy knits.

As a Topshop x The Frugality collaboration, I chose to style my favourite pieces from the collection – I fell in love with the faux fur bag charm (which has sadly sold out – sorry!) and the oversized navy ribbed sweater, a piece really missing from my wardrobe. There is something so wintery and cosy about a slouchy knit and this would look great with jeans and skinny leather leggings, too.
