Moody Blooms

Stunning dark blooms ruled the runways for this season. Take inspiration from the shows and pick the pieces that will take you through to Spring. The trick is to pair with ultra slick and edgy items now for a cool Winter feel  –  then lighten it up as the first real flowers emerge. Red, purple, blue, white – and the bigger the better, all on a inky black base – makes for an elegant  gothic feel that is just moody cool……

1. The Cashmere Sweater

A good cashmere sweater is a forever piece.  Warm up Winter with a red hot knit that feels amazing. The instant pop of festive colour is perfect now  – and will still look great in the Spring , matched with tan accessories. Team with black now and a studded handbag for a glam edgy feel.

Beautiful timeless infinity scarf in stunning soft alpaca. Available in camel (picutured) and stone. Simple, timeless chic.

It has a real Park Avenue/off duty Supermodel feel. Trendy but so elegant. It’s Grace Kelly meets Miranda Kerr.  Alpaca is hypoallergenic and breathable as well as feeling incredible.

5. The Jeans

We all want great looking jeans – but in order to get a good fit the fabric is often thin. When it’s cold outside we want style that also keeps us warm.  The Naked & Famous brand fits the bill.

A cool label with a realistic price tag that prides itself on its out-there fabric mixes. Cashmere, silk and wool mixes plus heavier denim styles to keep you warm.  Approx $140. Big celeb following – check them out!  http://nakedandfamousdenim.com

Uniqlo have also launched  weather proof jeans that don’t compromise on style! Windproof with heat retention functions and a great fit – the secret lies in the three layer structure. High tech chic!

6. The Boots

We all need a chic pair of hard wearing boots in the colder months – and these gorgeous studded beauties fit the bill. A hybrid boot –  essentially glam ankle bikers  – which ties in well to the glossy punk trend. They toughen up cute dresses and give a sexy edge to leggings and skinny jeans. stud

Pinafore Dresses

Cool and VERY easy to wear –  the Pinafore dress is back!

Last seen in the 90’s – you’ll find more variety with the 2013 version.  Back then, a chic grey pinnie over a black tshirt was the epitome of cool. This time around its all about mixing it up. While black and navy totally rock – colour is where it starts to get fun.

pinn

 

So simple to style: do Rachel from Friends with a classic short tee underneath, or pair with a crisp white shirt for preppy cool. You could also go Kate Moss on a night out with a sparkly corset underneath…..

Dress up or down – this look is equally perfect over a bikini on holiday or a vest at home.

Get your Pinnie on!
