Natural fabrics are the only way to keep comfortably warm in winter. Cashmere, leather and vintage rabbit fur in tones of black and silver are what I wore here. The shorts were leather biker trousers that I cut and just turned up the hems. I like the zip detail at the front, it makes them a little different from the sea of leather shorts you see at the moment.

Whenever I wear this cashmere polo-neck jumper I have to wear my Tiffany silver pearls over the neck. It’s a little quirk in my sense of style, which on most days rarely touches on classic styling. I quite like how it surprises me. The boots I’ve had for years and because they’ve got such a thick platform at the front, they keep my toes warm in winter. The vintage ‘H’- monogrammed bucket bag is my new favourite.

I’m reading the Philip Norman biography on the Rolling Stones and it’s keeping my obsession with their style and that of their girlfriends’ piqued to say the least. This coat was my mother’s and she wore it to a Rolling Stones gig in America when it was new. The shoes are a little later and are nearly impossible to walk in but if I keep to the flat pavements and stay away from the cobbles I can just about manage!

Yesterday was the shortest day of the year; that means that, 1. the days only get longer from here on in, which is perfect and 2. it’s pretty darn cold. I bought my last vintage fur for a long time (from a charity shop, Rathmines) and teamed it with animal print and messed up hair to create a “morning after” look. I really love it when hair just looks that little bit undone, plus it suits leopard print almost as much as Rod Stewart’s leggings!

Channelling 70’s groupie chic in vintage fur, hot pants and gold lamé. I love looking at old pictures of the Rolling Stones 1st ladies and their dishevelled-glamour look. Anita Pallenberg is rock chic perfection. Here I’m wearing a charity shop find, this early 70’s fur and leather short jacket, teamed with some lace leggings and short hot pants. As much as the lace leggings will keep me chilly the vintage fur will keep me warm.
