Music Festival Style: From Glastonbury to Coachella Here’s What’s HOT!

Music festival style has been rock star led by people including Kate Moss and Katy Perry. So let’s be honest, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, Kendall Jenner, and Gigi Hadid make it look as if going to a festival is super easy. In the rock star and fashion model world, the sun always shines and flower crowns will make every outfit instantly amazing! However, us mere mortals don’t have a hotel to decamp to. You didn’t have a stylist plan your wardrobe with meticulous detail and the cute, flowery playsuits and barely-there sundresses look nothing like the old t-shirts, shorts and…

Colourful Street Style on Show at NYFW

Colourful Street Style on Show at NYFW

The colourful street style was in full force in the Big Apple for New York Fashion Week NYFW. What I mean by colourful street style is actually street style with oomph and personality, not necessarily bright colours; although there was plenty of that too. Come rain or shine the chic New Yorker weathered the day in style. From baby blue and pastels to strong jewel colours, colourful street style was out in force. No shrinking violets, but a riot of silhouettes, combinations, chic style and Big Apple individuality. I love the independent, individual vibe of New York; anything goes.But what…

How To Incorporate Vintage In Your Wardrobe

How To Incorporate Vintage In Your Wardrobe

Once upon time… long long ago… a fashionista wouldn’t have been seen dead in an ‘Op Shop’. Fast forward to the last few years and having vintage in your wardrobe is de rigeur. Fashionistas are not only on-board with fashion recycling but they actively search far and wide for trendy, glamorous, unique or quirky vintage pieces. And I am one of the very guilty. So I asked Miss Chrissy from the Lindy Charm School for Girls for a few tips on how to incorporate vintage in your wardrobe. It’s a great trend and it’s here to stay. I guess that…

The range includes womenswear, menswear, homewares and babywear. Having earned a solid reputation as the ‘bad boy’ of the fashion world, signature Jean Paul Gaultier designs based on tattoo and popular culture abound. The collection is unique and quirky but will…

NYFW 2016 : Best Black and White Street Style

When there’s a Fashion Week in town all eyes are as much on the street as the runways. In NYFW 2016 black and white street style abounded. Fashion bloggers were at pains to out-style regular New Yorkers who make the streets their own. Everything was on show – leather, sleeveless, asymmetrical, skinny leg, wide leg, flats, heels, studs… Some people think out their outfits to match their bestie (below). I love the black and white street style stripes with leopard print – I’ve never met a leopard print shoe I didn’t love. And fringing is still VERY big, looking fabulously…

Street Style Booties : Totes Bootilicious!

Street Style Booties : Totes Bootilicious!

Totally Bootilicious! I am a BIG fan of booties, ankle boots if you like. They are drop-dead sexy and make jeans or skirts look amazeballs without even trying. Strictly speaking, booties are boot-shoes, always with a heel and up to or covering the ankle. But let’s not get too hung up on labels, right? I prefer to wear my booties with either skinnies or a skirt with which I can wear black opaque or highly decorative stockings (usually in black) or black fishnets. But that’s just me. I readily acknowledge that booties are hot hot HOT and can be worn…

Street Style Red Inspo

Street Style Red Inspo

I do love winter because I’m a fan of patterned stockings, luxurious scarves, leather biker jackets and enveloping knits. Sometimes ‘rugging up’ against the cold isn’t high on our list of priorities, I understand that. But when you can rug up in a hot colour with cool accessories then maybe it’s worth it. I have found some fabulous Street Style Red Inspo in combinations that include skinny jeans, flared pants, midi skirts and even shorts. There is no doubt that red looks dynamic with black. If you have a pair of black skinny jeans or a black biker jacket you…
