Well, when isn’t it a navy day really. Classic and refreshing, with jeans or for a work wardrobe.

Model and business woman, Ines de La Fressange’s new collaboration with Uniqlo picks up on the ‘bleu marin’ staple of fashion in her range, above, beautifully described in French (with translation) here.

I love this classic cotton and wool piped edge jacket, in a subtle textured rib. It’s perfect, £49.90.

An easy layer over a white shirt, as shown by this jacket by Warehouse, still available on-line in selected sizes, although I have seen it in stores too. The blue and black flecks work with navy or black trousers and the 3/4 sleeves keep it casual. On sale, £30.


Warehouse soft tweedy jacket

A softer cardigan with some tailored detail by Maje, a brand spreading from Paris, with four front pockets is effortlessly chic layered over white with jeans. On sale, £130.

More relaxed but just a great pull on for weekends, this cardigan by Tommy Hilfiger at House of Fraser will be a forever friend, on sale, £47.50, in a washable wool/Acrylic blend.
