Dungarees If You Please

November 25, 2014

Calling all 90’s fans, guess what’s back? Dungarees! A favourite childhood trend is making their way back into our wardrobes.

First spotted on the catwalks they were quickly advocated by some of my favourite fashion forward celebrities: Alexa Chung, Blake Lively and Rihanna.

Available in multiple styles for the new season, in classic stonewash denim, 90’s inspired, sporty or prints there’s something for everyone and if dungarees aren’t your thing then why not try a cute pinafore dress.

How to wear your dungarees:
1.) With a simple tee and rolled-up hems with a pair of heels for a cool casual look.
2.) For a preppy look try the pinafore dress with a white collared shirt and a pair of loafers.
3.) Try a smart black tailored pair with a shirt and heels for a trendy office look.
4.) For a slick look add a tailored blazer to your look.
5.) A pair of black dungarees can take you from day to night quite easily. Add a pair of heels, a bold lips and killer accessories and you all set. Think Olivia Palermo.

“There’s nothing quite like a well-cut suit. On a man, a suit is a symbol of corporate power and Saville Row suave. On a woman, a suit is seductively louche, a little bit rock n’ roll, and, when teamed with slicked back hair and a cigarette, the height of Parisian chic.”

Thanks to Yves Saint Laurent and Helmut Newton a women in a suit has now been immortalised. 

Whether experimental, classic, feminine or androgynous this eighties look is definitely one of my favourites and in the words of YSL “I thought [a suit] was more modern than an evening gown.”

Pearls

July 14, 2014

Pearls, this timeless jewellery classic makes a major fashion comeback thanks to the master, Karl Lagerfeld, during the Chanel Pre-Spring/Summer 2014 Cruise Collection. 

Not only are pearls timeless but they feminine and refined. They add charm to an outfit without even trying.

“Did you know that Cleopatra dissolved a pearl in wine and drank it to prove her love to Marc Antony and ever since, the precious gem has adorned famously chic women throughout time.”

Diamonds aint a girls best friend no more 😉

First Blush

May 30, 2014

Is pink the new black this season? Evan pink naysayers may find themselves adorned in one of many shades of pink on offer this season.

Tone it down with a paler shade or spice things up with one of the brighter shades, it’s all on offer this season from blush pink to bubblegum pink.

With so many great winter items available in pink there’s no need to wait for temperatures to rise before donning this colour. Grab a pink fuzzy knit or a pink oversized winter coat.

There’s countless ways to wear pink: Team it up with rose gold accessories, try pink on pink or choose a pink item with florals or pop art for a little fun. A head to toe pink look too girly for you? Try adding a pale pink bag or a pair of shoes to your outfit.

I went a little crazy with my look… three shades of pink with three different prints, and I love it! Don’t fear fashion, have fun with it. And remember…

…We don’t just wear pink on Wednesday’s anymore…
