The Does My Bum Look 40 edit

Fashion writer Kat Farmer tells us how to sail stylishly through spring 2017.

‘Practical’ fashion advice is often shorthand for ‘boring and sensible’. Not so with Kat Farmer, the straight-talking, often hilarious and always impeccably chic writer behind popular blog Does My Bum Look 40 In This? Her passion for sharply tailored, head-turning separates makes her the perfect candidate to cherry-pick the best pieces from Tu’s spring collections – watch the video and keep scrolling to hear how she’d style them up.

This outfit is a cocktail of some of Kat’s favourite things: Tu’s duster jacket and tailored grey joggers. “They’re lightweight and easy for running around on warmer days,” she points out. “But, thanks to their tailored cut, I still feel really polished and pulled-together.”

“I love the easy elegance of a pyjama blouse,” Kat enthuses, giving this version from Tu the status of “new-season essential – it eases you away from your wintry sweaters and injects some subtle colour into your wardrobe”. So how to style this spring’s trendiest piece? Kat suggests creating some contrast. “Wearing a pyjama top with matching trousers wouldn’t feel very ‘me’, but adding casual jeans keeps the whole thing from looking too statement-y,” she says.

“I’m loving the new take on classic trainers,” says Kat, zero-ing in on Tu’s bow-tied pair. “Whether it’s a bow, some cute colour or a glitter detail, this season’s trainers will elevate your look with a bit of playfulness, no matter what you’re wearing.”
