5 Styling Tricks to Steal From Carine's New Uniqlo Collection

The inimitable Carine Roitfeld's first Uniqlo collection last year was everything we had hoped it would be. There was the kind of sharp tailoring we're used to seeing on our favourite French editrix, alongside her signature pencil skirts, leather, leopard print, silk camisoles and punk knitwear—as well as styling tips aplenty. Last season Carine's outfit-defining tweaks included fishnets and black silk skinny scarves with everything plus tightly buttoned jackets layered over waistcoats and under overcoats, like a modern three-piece suit.

So even if every single piece of the equally excellent second drop sells out as soon as it hits selected stores and online today, there are subtle outfit tricks to steal and implement in your own wardrobe.

Scroll down to see Carine's new fashion ideas in motion and how you can shop them for yourself…
