We’ve always been fans of Christine Bleakley’s elegant style. The TV presenter and wife of Frank Lampard has a great eye for fashion (and no doubt a skilled styling team in the wings!), wearing everything from gorgeous-hued pleated skirts to muted tailored blouses.
Christine is no stranger to a high-street steal either. In a recent Instagram photo, the 38-year-old posed in a blue festive ensemble straight from the high-street ahead of her TV appearance on ITV’s Loose Women.
‘Seasonal sparkles for a Wednesday @loosewomen top from @johnlewisretail and skirt @marksandspencer @angiesmithstyle@helenhandmakeup,’ Christine informed her followers.
Unsurprisingly, her fanbase loved her Christmas look. ‘That blue is gorgeous on you,’ wrote one Instagram user. ‘You look beautiful Christine,’ said another.
Christine’s outfit pairs a blue sequin pencil skirt from Marks & Spencer with a light blue cashmere roll-neck from John Lewis. A woman after our own hearts!
The Embellished Sequin Pencil Midi Skirt, £45, comes from the M&S AW17 collection. Unfortunately, it has sold-out on the Marks & Spencer website, but there are a few left in certain stores.
John Lewis’ Cashmere Roll Neck Jumper, £89, is no longer available in the stunning light blue shade, but the website still has a few left in equally gorgeous light grey, navy and neutral tones.
Christine’s high-street look was styled by Angie Smith, who also styles Holly Willoughby’s enviable outfits on This Morning.
The figure-hugging pencil skirt was a perfect choice to flatter Christine’s slim physique. By pairing it with a softer, more subtle jumper, the outfit avoids sequin overkill while remaining festive.
If you can’t get your hands on Christine’s M&S skirt, both River Island and Pure Collection sell similar pieces.
For lookalike light blue rollneck jumpers, both Hobbs and Mango stock alternatives.
