The revival of coats on shoulders continues from last year to this years fashion weeks. Seen on the catwalks to the sidewalks are all shapes and styles of jackets, draped over shoulders with sleeves swaying by sides. How the coats don't drop to the ground, nobody knows, but they certainly look chic! If you wish to be spotted by Tommy Ton or Bill Cunningham, this is the way to go. A fresh and fun way of styling a coat can transform any outfit.
Well its about time I got back to blogging, and what better way to that than with a trend spotted on the runway. I absolutely adore Christopher Bailey's simple yet elegant, and somewhat "street style" play on the scarf in Burberry Prorsum's A/W 14' collection.
By freely wrapping a scarf around your neck and pinching it in place with a teeny tiny belt you can transform any outfit. It is a real style statement and anyone can wear it, whether you own a Hermes silk scarf or one of Penney's finest.
By the look of things, paint, from swatches to splashes to full portraits on canvas, art is the new fashion trend for Spring. And who's complaining? Its time to add some colour to our wardrobes. Any excuse for a bit of shopping eh? Largerfeld had dabs of colour all over the runway with his latest collection for Chanel. Even the models faces were painted with graffiti inspired eyeliner. Prada on the other hand took a different approach. Models walked the runways with oil paintings and prints of women's faces on their outfits. Celine too took on the trend, modeling topcoats with dripping paint patterns.
How do you think the high street will adapt this catwalk look? I love the idea. What about you?
Have you checked out the celebs fashion choices for the Golden Globe Awards this week? My favourite, by far, was Emma Watson's daring choice of sporting some black tapered pants, under a backless Dior couture gown. She pulls it of amazingly! It looks like a nice, simple dress from her front pose but when she turns around the crowd goes wild. My other faves were Lupita Nyong'o in Ralph Lauren, Emilia Clarke in Proenza Schouler and Emma Roberts in Lanvin. Ralph Lauren's design looks stunning and minimal with its cape style back and boat neckline and as for Lanvin, it's the perfect "long" black dress. Who doesn't love a fishtail?
What do you think of the spectacular gowns seen at the Golden Globes 2014? Are you a fan?
It's week two and I'm back with another trend post. Have you guys noticed celebs like Selena and Lopez rocking the scrunchie lately? Its great to be in style while keeping flyaways out of your visage. We all know there's no better feeling than tying up that mop in front of your eyes while your busy at work. Why not do it in style? Half up and half down is another option, if you feel like having a bit of hair around to blow in the breeze.
A trend that has crept among Runway and High Street, Pinterest and Tumblr the last couple of seasons is this shining delight. This futuristic style is here to stay so be sure to keep an eye out for reflective pieces you can add to your wardrobe. It can be dressed up or down giving outfits a unique edge. Add a little sparkle to your life.
