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……
Ideal for this time of year when it’s still cold – just add a black fur gilet and you are good to go!

Tartan. It’s the coolest fabric of the season. It’s both ladylike and rock chick and always looks smart. Rita Ora looks amazing in these high waisted trousers, Cheryl Cole does edgy chic in a glam mini and mega celeb of the moment – Scottish soul singer Tallia Storm – rocks the ultimate in pretty punk. Tartan is so hip that beyond cool superstar Pharrell Williams and his bride Helen Lasichanh actually got married in it this Autumn. It gets you in the Christmas spirit too – bring it on!

The fash pack have been showing off their cutest charms recently – everything from stars, friendship links, semi precious stones and greek eyes. It’s a gorgeous and original trend – that suits everyone.
There are two ways to work this look – wear one charm on each delicate chain – at different lengths and layer them on your neck ………….or load about 3 charms onto a slightly chunkier chain – the choice is yours.
Start with one simple charm on a pretty feminine chain and add shorter and longer pieces for an amazing intricate look.
For a good loaded necklace – buy a quality chain and add your trinkets. You can go luxe and pair a Tiffany charm with a stunning Monica Vinader gemstone or head to the high street – Thomas Sabo charms start at £29, Links of London charms from £35. Diffferent sizes sit well together. Think a pretty leaf, delicate horseshoe, topaz, hamsa, heart.
Check out Diva at Miss Selfridge, Mango and Freedom at Topshop for ready made necklaces. If you want something individual – Not on the High Street – an amazing company who specialise in personlised goodies – sell these adorable necklaces for £42.50. Create your own necklace by choosing your chain length, adding your charms and customising with names, dates, words or messages of your choice.
It’s a beautiful look that goes perfectly with the luxury feel of Autumn/Winter 2013 but takes you through to Spring. Just change your charms with the season!

It’s Citrus Time! Pair acid orange with zesty lemon for the ultimate fruit cocktail. The two shades match perfectly with a contrasting clash that looks stunning. The look brings the holiday feel – home. Add a well cut jacket to a shift dress for office perfection or team classic skirts with vests for simple clean lines. Add nail colour or a handbag to a casual look or go full matching – from top to toe……..

Hair flowers are the hottest Summer accessory around. Whether you go for above the ear, headband, garland or full crown – indulge your inner girlie glam and wear yours with pride.
Beyonce led the trend with one flower in her H & M Campaign earlier this year, Made in Chelsea’s Millie Mac looks adorable in her flower band and Kesha rocks a boho crown. Selena Gomez goes for double daisy, Khloe Kardashian does supercute garland at Kim’s Baby Shower and Alexa Chung shows us festival perfection. Lana Del Ray loves this look – working a few white flowers and flower crown – gorgeous!
I love hair flowers, wearing one behind the ear and garlands in Ibiza. They channel carefree Summers – think dancing in fields and hot island paradises. The rule is – the bigger the flowers, the smaller the earrings! Add chunky bangles and keep your dress simple.

The latest celeb colour crush is here! Pretty, classy and oh so wearable. This colour is grown up baby blue, warmer than the candy colour ices and more ladylike. Think groomed and pretty – Pippa Middleton, Taylor Swift, Kim Sears and Miranda Kerr. From Cornflower to China Blue – it’s the prettiest way to keep cool…..
