How gorgeous was the Tara Jarmon coat that K-Middy wore the other week? It’s the perfect spring coat, just the ticket for May christenings and June lunches at posh restaurants. It’s such a pretty colour and (as we saw on the Duchess) looks lovely worn over a neutral dress.
In fact, Tara Jarmon’s SS13 collection was filled with beautiful pieces. Among my favourites were the expertly cut tapered trousers in shades of pearl, lemon and sugary pink; the boxy leather t-shirts in apple green and satsuma; and the crisp white shirts tucked into a variety of circle skirts, cinched at the waist with leather or metal belts. Every single piece in the collection is beautiful – the silhouettes are a fine combination of retro and contemporary, while the interesting use of fabric and print creates texture and depth to a simple colour palette of soft pastels, muted summer shades and black and navy. If I could choose only once piece? The navy and white oversize gingham check dress.
