Style is Eternal


So this week's ROUND UP is a little different than usual.

Until October 25th The Bowes Museum, in collaboration with the Fondation Pierre Bergé - Yves Saint Laurent, will be showcasing the French designer's work and life in an exhibit called Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal.

In celebration of the opening of this exhibition, I have been asked by Farfetch to put together a complete Saint Laurent look using the fashion house's 'Iconic' Smoking Jacket.

"Fashion fades, style is eternal."

The above quote by Yves Saint Laurent is probably the most important fashion-related advice ever, and one of the hardest to keep in mind when shopping. I'm an avid fashion consumer, I always have a list of at least 30 items that I think I "need" to be stylish and on-trend each season.

If I'm completely honest with myself, the times I think I look my best are when I feel my best in the outfit I'm wearing (duh). With this in mind, the outfit I put together for this post is one that I'd feel comfortable in. It's one I can see myself wearing variations of over and over again, regardless of the year or season.
