You might have seen my other post on James Bay, he is one of the most incredible soul/rock artists in the UK at the moment. I am just OBSESSED with him. I won’t harp on because I’m not an expert on music, but he is simply divine and I was thrilled to see Burberry agree with me on this one. My favourite songs of his are Stealing Cars, Let It Go, Scars and Clocks Go Forward. Spine-tinglingly beautiful.
The S/S15 show had some of the expected gaudy prints and fugly Birkenstocks. Complaints aside, I am really excited about floaty chiffon skirts with several splits, sheer feminine silk and plunging necklines making an appearance this coming spring and summer.
I have posted on the classic trench, and this one is a bit more fun for you mac maestros and trench trendies… This caught my eye for the strong red colour and cute cropped length.
The beauty of short macs is their transeasonal utility; perfect for a mild day and can be layered over chunky knitwear. Thanks to the classic design of this mac, I will be able to wear it for a few years! Available to buy here. Styled with my favourite Massimo Dutti knee-high suede boots – Pippa Middleton bought them AFTER I did, true story. Sadly the boots are no longer available but Asos have a wonderful selection of similar styles.
The classic mac or trench is my ultimate autumn/winter fashion staple. This is Zara’s answer to the classic mac, and for £99 it certainly gives Burberry a run for their money. The length elegantly falls just at the knee and the material is a sheeny tough fabric that feels incredibly luxe. A really high-quality trench coat is perfect for any occasion and in this neutral warm stone colour, it goes with just about anything in my wardrobe. Smart enough to wear to work and casual enough to run around in during the weekends. Trench perfection. Click to see more.
This past year I have been really trying to get better at dressing myself. The driving force behind such efforts comes from being surrounded by women whose style commands a boardroom; resolute in composure and dripping well-accessorised puddles of glamour. One cannot help but feel terrified in this situation. The fashion posts you will see on this blog have been spawned from this fear, challenge and a commitment to bettering my self style.
