Magazine Match-up: Plaza Sweet

This natty knitted two-piece by Plaza will set you back an uninflated £8.90 but teamed with the right accessories - beret, clutch bag, courts - looks like it could carry a £30+ tag. The fabric is a clingy wool jersey in shades of cranverry, black and grey. You'll find the set at Che Guevara, Kensington High Street and all branches of Bobby Cousins.

If you know me, you know there’s little I love more than finding something I own in a magazine from the time. So when this copy of Cosmopolitan arrived today, I was delighted to spot this Antony Price for Plaza jersey top (albeit with a slightly different width of stripe). I was then, of course, miserable to note that it once had a matching skirt. Boo hoo. You can’t win ’em all…
