Pretty in Pastel’s..

For a low key lady like look this Spring/Summer look no further than the pastel trend. It’s soft and easier to achieve than that of the colour blocking trend of really saturated hues. Think feminine chic, paired back colour pops and you are on the right track. Chanel, Preen and Valentino are my main inspirations for the trend, really hitting the pastel nail on the head. Again, the highstreet has really put every effort in bringing this still to their customer. Look to Zara and Topshop for the best catwalk inspired pieces and Penny’s and River Island for great trousers, shoes and jackets.

How to do Androgyny this A/W11

Androgyny:
This season it’s all about being one of the boys. Think masculine silhouettes but with a touch of femininity. Beautiful fabrics and delicate layering make it a wearable trend, it’s also extremely easy to carry from day to night.

Be inspired:

-Look to Michael Kors for androgyny with feminine references. Plunging necklines and extreme tailoring.
-Chanel continue on with their signature style but add boxy shapes and more draped styles. For those of you who are more adventurous with this trend this is your go to designer.
-This season Stella McCartney showed us how to achieve maximum femininity with soft lines, fabrics and shapes yet still maintain that masculine vibe.
-Look to Paul Smith if you dare to go all the way with this trend. He rocked the catwalk with chilled out, oversized pieces.

Still a little daunted?
- This trend is super easy to wear, introduce yourself to it with a boxy blazer if everything else seems a tad too much.
-It’s a really good choice for day to night. Just pop on a blouse with a plunging neckline after work add a killer pair of heels and you are all set.
-Tapered trousers are a staple in any wardrobe so invest in a great pair now because there is a massive selection in stores.

 

Chanel.. Good enough to eat..

Chanel A/W 2011..incredible

A nod to Coco Chanel’s original style and love of androgyny, this seasons Boy meets girl style reached perfection in this Chanel’s autumn/ winter show in Paris. Slouchy styles were challenged by feminine touches including plunging necklines and luxurious fabrics.  In my eyes Karl Lagerfeld can really never get it wrong, but this season gave me new reason to adore basically every fibre in each garment. An extensive awareness of what the youthful culture want to wear today was displayed , but he still maintained the classical Chanel style. The catwalk was smoldering with a grungy feel, models emerged from a glowing ray of light which was hidden behind a large frame for the lead up to the show. Models strolled along wooden slats, with a seemingly ashy air in the building, all contributing to the mesmerizing scenario. The clothes speak for themselves, each one more beautiful than the other.
