5 New Style Updates...

This going to be a long post, got loads to tell you guys! Hot new winter style updates have arrived (plus, mince pies are finally in supermarkets!) and I want to be the first (maybe second after Look Magazine ruined it!) to tell you all the hints and secrets...feel free to put your own stamp on anything because this is the winter where anything goes! Here it goes...


Faux Leather Leggings

These go with practically anything from a chunky grey sweater to a girly chiffon blouse. I like to play up the preppy side of these with chunky brogues, tweed blazer and a white tee. Sounds a little strange but it actually works, especially with the right accessories and makeup. It also works (another trend...) if you have them just slightly above the ankle and then with pointed courts (think Elle Macpherson and Kate Bosworth style).

Knee-High Socks
These look great under boots, they're definitely the new accessory power player. Stiletto courts will look way too 'school disco'. Style them with tonal layered knits for a cosy, apres-ski vibe. These Jack Wills ones are so cosy and warm, style these with brown leather boots or even wellies!


Tweed Sets

 It started with matching short suits and now the coolest trend trailblazers are taking it a step further in prim skirt and jacket sets. The best come from Topshop or invest in a real tailored set. Pencil skirts can be a little frumpy so why not just an inch shorter (careful where you go with this, go to your local tailor for extra help). This look can either go with brogues or chunky flats (take notes from Prada A/W!) or for a sexy smart look opt for heels. Don't forget, you don't always have to wear them as a set, the jacket can look great with jeans as it does with the matching skirt. Plus, the tweed is major cosy come Winter!


Metallics



Metallics can be dressed up or down. It's great come them Christmas do's! It doesn't have to necessarily be a blazer like the one above, it can be a skirt, trousers, jeans, top, blouse...anything! For day, think tops, cardigans etc. as its more casual teamed with jeans. For night think lower half of the body for extra impact like skinny jeans, skirt or a pair of shorts styled with something neutral. Always, whether its top or bottom half, have neutral makeup and minimalistic accessories.  

Capes

No, not the Superman type...the high-fashion type! I love this style, a circular silhouette but still is so hot! Too 'different' for you? Well, don't worry I felt a bit like that the first time I saw it, make sure its a neutral like the one from Topshop above. Also, pair it with skinnies, otherwise the whole silhouette of your body will be washed away and make you look fat not curvy!




There are so many other trends this winter but these are the main ones....bye girleeees!

Spring at Kurt Geiger









The new collection was beautifully bright and surprisingly ladylike. The mix of sorbet hues and retro prints made me crave beach weather, sun and candy.. seeing the brand new sunglass collection and knowing a bikini will also be part of the collection did not make it any easier for me. I was especially taken by the neon mary janes, baby blue shades and caged cut-out booties!

Lauren Conrad's Pre-Spring Collection!

Here are just a few ideas for Spring, although if you live in England like me, you might have to give this collection a pass. I love the looks don't get me wrong, but its just too Summer-ish for me. The colours are very warm and cosy, I just feel like who would wear shorts in Spring unless you live in some place hot?! I think the lovely neutrals go wonders against the monochrome and gold. Even the textures and fabrics work great together, if you'd like to see the whole collection visit www.paper-crown.com.




Pssssst! Above is my favourite look! Not enough colour for you? Opt for a vampy lip. Want more edginess? Go for a black leather jacket.



Thanks for reading guys! Hoped you enjoyed it!

Christmas Gifts!

I'm the Christmas mood already! Just came back from shopping, looking at what things I want to put on my Christmas list! I love it when Christmas comes along, in the shopping center's they all put there decorations up, Christmas sets and gifts come in to store, there's a buzz about town, everyone's mood meter steps up to 100 and I just generally love the run up to Christmas! Writing your Christmas List girleeees? Stuck? Well, don't be because here's a few ideas....enjoy!

Perfumes: The Perfect Christmas Present!

 Us girleeees love to smell good. This year, I have to say, the perfumes have been rather good. So many scents and only one nose, make sure before you buy a perfume for someone that they have smelt it before. No point buying a perfume that someone doesn't like so before hand, take them out shopping and just casually have a mooch around the perfume department and check out which one they like (without telling them your getting them it for Christmas!). Personally I love fruity light scents like my Daisy Marc Jacobs, whereas a slightly older person might prefer a more strong chestnut-y smell. These are some ideas...

For A Younger Audience (15-30 roughly):





DNKY -  Golden Delicious 

Chanel - Coco Mademoiselle)

Diesel - Loverdose


 For An Older Audience (30+ roughly):


Clinique - Happy
Estee Lauder - Beautiful

Chanel - No. 5
Im not necessarily saying you have to be like 15 to buy Loverdose, it just appeals to younger audience, but of course, there's nothing stopping you going out and getting it for an older person!  Hope everyone has a nice weekend, and only 45 days 'till Christmas yay! Thanks for reading!
