LATEST STREET STYLE FASHION

Sophistication and style with a hint of sporty chic are ruling the fashion streets with fashion icons showing off with some of their boldest and most colorful looks yet in true style. Blending high-end aesthetic with comfortable clothing, here’s a list of the best street style looks from all over the world for your urbane style to go several notches up this fall:

MONOCHROME BURST

If rocking one shade from head-to-toe worries you, take a look at Gigi Hadid’s classy street style looks. The fashionista shows us that a monochromatic outfit looks so cool and elevated and makes playing around with colors really simple- just pair it with itself (an all over blue denim look) and you’re good to go!

LAVENDERS AND VIBRANT HUES

Ultra-violent is the official pick for 2018, but the street style fashion crowd has taken a softer approach to the shade. An updated form of millennial pinks- tops, suits, shoes, layers, jumpsuits and even pants in lavenders are a must-have.

While it’s tempting to go for demure hues in the cool breeze, this year is all about vibrant shades and loads of them. The street crowd loves hot pinks, greens, blues and reds and for great reasons.

TEDDY COATS

These luscious babies in bold brights like yellow and reds or in tan shades are just everywhere. The fine texture adds interest and finesse to every look while feeling extra cozy.

CHECKS AND UPSIZED DOTS

Victoria Beckham and Balenciaga are two fashion houses donning checks like no other so here we are. Grab a posh blazer with shoulder pads or a nice coat or if you love the print- a plaid suit is sure to make you standout like no other and looks even more spectacular with cat-eye sunnies.

Street style fashion has undoubtedly been bolder, brighter and louder for this year and even the tinsy polka dots were enlarged to bold unmissable proportions. These Dalmatian style designs add so much fun to the outfits whilst maintaining a polished aesthetic.

SIDE STRIPE TROUSERS AND VELVET PANTS

These pretty babies are ruling everywhere and look so flattering and stylish while also giving the illusion of longer legs. Grab yours in a dark shade with a bright side stripe or more.

Ruling the streets for long, we spotted so much of luxurious velvets on flared and wide-leg pants this year and love how the plush material gives outfits a glamorous and decadent touch.

RUFFLED DRESSES

Flowing, draped and so feminine, these beautiful hints add a blissful feel to your street-wears. Team with the trending mini-bags and velvet boots to turn heads.

 

STATEMENT MAKING SUITS

Drawing attention and projecting power, suit suits in luxe stripes, animal patterns and other eye-catching prints are all the street-style rage this season and look so daring and head turning. Split the suit with either patterned pants or blazer if you wish for something subtle.

Which of these 2018 current street-style fashion trends are your favorite?

2018 A Year of All or Nothing When it Comes to Fashion Trends

The start of a new season offers everyone the perfect occasion to re-plan and re-think their wardrobe. It is also a great time to embrace the new fashion trends while relegating sartorial disasters of the past. According to New York catwalk trends, 2018 brings back the gym kitsch fashion statement, while the supersized earing is back, and fashion even allows you to colour calm yourself. Sating slinks are in, while this year you don’t need to wear corresponding colours, it is spring and mixing up is great. Bright socks and checks are part of the mix, while printed T’s survive all and remain in the spotlight since last year.

2018 Gym Kitsch Gear


Hoodies and sweatpants are something of the past in the 2018 post-athleisure fashion world. The new gym kitsch attire includes items such as clunky sneakers, icing-blue sating boxing shorts and lycra cycling shorts. To truly channel your inner princess at the gym you would need to visit the nearest boutique stocking Dolce & Gabbana, Fenty x Puma or Dior while the Gucci shell suit is a must-have item for fitness enthusiasts.

Supersize Cluster Earrings Make A Fashion Statement of Their Own in 2018

In 2018 more is more, the weirder, bigger and bulkier accessories are the better, especially in earrings. The trendiest earring styles include Chanel’s jumbo icicles, Burberry’s chandeliers and disco balls by Valentino.

2018’s Power Fashion Couple – Elegant Heels & Bright Socks


It’s time to put a sock on it and this year tartan heel socks, fluorescent colours and spindly stilettos allow everyone to make a bright statement. The sock/sandal combo get a refreshed make-over and golden sandals complemented by black ankle socks, or even orange and white combinations, show you know your fashion.

A Year of Mixing Up Your Style to Display Your Feelings

Not everyone feels enthusiastic about corresponding colours and this year a mix of stripes, prints and colours indicate just how up-to-date your wardrobe and fashion sense are. Seen as high fashion are the combination of different size stripes, leopard prints, fishnet stockings and plaid kilts. Rolled up sleeves are back all the way from the seventies while sequinned dresses. Worn with ankle boots draws inspiration from the 1940s. It is also perfect to dress up your lace dress with an army-style coat. Get it? It is indeed a year of mixing up colours, styles and prints.

Showing Skin is Just so 2017s – 2018 Is All About Covering It All Up

Long sleeves, low hems and high necks are part of the spring collection, and one of the most popular outfits by Gucci is an ankle-grazing gown in amethyst bustle-fronted with a hood in the same colour.

What is the Met Gala and why do I keep hearing about it every year

It’s unavoidable. Every year, out of the blue, you’re going to see the headlines Met Gala followed by a list of best dressed. Yet, not everyone realises what the Met Gala is and why celebrities dress the way they do every year for it.

To put it simply – the Met Gala, or sometimes referred to the Met Ball depending on who you’re asking, is the fashion world equivalent to the Oscars. It’s an evening in which designers, actors and actresses, models, and even music artist show off the yearly most over-the-top looks they can create. However, it’s not completely random (even though some who are invited to the prestigious event seem to refuse to dress the part). This event has a yearly theme, with the theme of 2018 being Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. Though, this event takes place for a surprisingly charitable reason – some of the profit made goes to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Even though you’re seeing it more and pop culture – this event has been taking place since 1946.

Met Gala Invite List


The invite list for the Met Gala is another story though. Only people who are some of the highest achievers in an array of categories: film, music, fashion are invited. Though, sometimes some exceptional people are invited due to their dazzling personality and their prevalence in today’s media. You should note that every year the guest list changes – so if you’re seeing some familiar faces then it means one of two things: they’re either constantly in the media and have the best personality ever, or that they’re just exceptional achievers in the eyes of the list makers.

The Met Gala doesn’t have a strict dress code other – other than wearing an outfit that fits the yearly theme. However, some celebrities have been known to be invited on multiple occasions, and they usually wear something slightly reminiscent of the original theme. Though many of the people who are considered the best dressed of the Met Gala are the ones that go all out and wear some of the most unique recreations of what they, and their designers, think the theme truly means.

What the Met Gala Offers Sightseers

Okay, so what even happens at the Met Gala? The part that is commonly shown to the public is the red carpet where the invitees show off their stunning, or lacklustre, outfits and take pictures with the designers they’re paired with. After all the photos are taken – the invitees then have a chance to walk through the costume exhibit that the Metropolitan Museum of Art before going off to a stunning venue for a night full of dining, dancing, and enjoying the event. Though some of the invites do host and throw after parties to the fun won’t end.
The best dressed in Met Gala history always changes after every yearly theme. Though Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga all have been known to have the best looks for each one of the Met Gala that they attended. Even with this year’s theme, Rihanna stole the spotlight with her dazzling outfit.

2017 Trends that Should Be Out by Now

There are always fashions that are trending and while 2017 saw some great ones there are some from last year that should be avoided now. There will always be fashion trends that are here today and gone tomorrow, but when is the time you need to say goodbye to a trend that used to be hot? That is never easy to do with a trend that may be recently on the out list, but here are a few recent trends that you may want to steer clear from nowadays.

Chokers

Chokers were big last season and Taylor Swift can be thanked for beginning the fashion trend in 2016, but that trend has run its course. Not that the look has crossed over to memes that have neck braces it is time to move on.

Necklines Off the Shoulders


While necklines off the shoulders can really flatter your shoulders and neck the time has come to check out other body parts. Hey, this neckline had its time in the sun and the single shoulder strap is always cool. One of the top recent trends for the summer of 2018 is to show off a little midriff with the single exposed ab on the side gaining steam for a little skid to show with various outfits.

Bucket Bags

Bucket bags were big for a while and the concept was a good one in having shallow storage options for a travel bag to make things easier to get to. The bags were not only very fashionable, but useful as well. However, more angular and circular bags are trending now even though they may not be as practical as other types of bags.

The Corset – Belts and All

Ok, so Kim Kardashian brought about this trend of the not so recent past and many followed the trend. A corset belt may be the one corset item that should be scratched off the list first., After that dresses that have ties built in should be gone soon as well. Instead check out coats that already have built-in belts and a classic brown leather one, which are a great accessory for tons of outfits.

Bomber Jackets


While bomber jackets may never go out of style for men they may have run their course for women. They are bigger and bulkier, which is not the new trend, as sharp looks that appear to be more on the tailored, like a trench coat or tweed oversized blazer, are the new it looks.

Baby Backpacks

Baby backpacks made a bigtime comeback last year and that nostalgia has worn off. If you think you are too old to wear them you probably are and just avoid them altogether these days with them losing steam in the fashion world. Regular backpacks that are more functional are back in these days as are others that are not so functional, like mentioned before, in angular and circular shapes. Also, you may think of bucket bags, but look above, as those are on the way out as well.

The Face We All Want To Avoid!…. Gift Face

This is a genius piece of marketing from Harvey Nichols for this festive season demonstrating ‘Gift Face’, the face we all want to avoid receiving when giving gifts. When I first watched this advertisement it really tickled me, at some point in our lives we’ve all had to give ‘gift face’ the face that says it all but ultimately is us trying our best to hide how we really feel by attempting to look grateful and like you love the gift you’ve just received.


I also have just come across another of Harvey Nichols adverts that I really like, this one from last year, how this one passed me by is beyond me but I love it so just had to share this one too.

Hilary Duff Goes Casual Chic Round LA.

I really enjoy catching up on Hilary Duff’s style and exercise regime, I’ve always had an interest in her as a bit of an idol, I think it’s because we have a similar style, hair and similar skin complexion for make up but also as she’s of a similar age to me and similar body shape.
I love Hilary’s casual style for hopping round town here her simplistic casual style looks not only chic but also comfortable and very flattering for her hourglass figure and that wide brimmed floppy hat just completes her look fabulously. 

Kate Spade’s, Miss Adventure

I just had to share this video as soon as I came across it, it’s just the BEST way to advertise a clothing range. A sure funny, witty and stylish short movie, which I would also say demonstrates the way most women think when they get caught up in a shopping frenzy. 
I love it and I want more!

Out To Play In My Playsuit…

Wow, what a week it’s been. I’ve been full of busy with work, preparing exciting things for the blog and last weekend one of my best friends hen parties in London which consisted of copious amounts of prosecco and cocktails and fabulous rooftop bars, a very classy affair I must say. 
 
It was getting so close to Jen’s hen weekend when I had began packing all my outfits and had very specific items planned, but I just couldn’t stop thinking about this little Reiss playsuit that they had very tactfully been dropping into my email inbox for about 3 weeks prior when I got to a point, Reiss had got to me. 
Believe me I’m a sucker for Reiss so it didn’t take me much to be swayed to heading into town to get this little number tried on. 
The moment I put on the ‘Hail’ graphic jacquard playsuit, I fell in love.
 
I fell for this jumpsuit for it’s comfort, it’s easy wearing for day or night events and had a culotte style feel to the shorts, perfectly loose for someone who is thigh conscious like myself. Not only that, but it fitted perfectly to my waist and chest, the perfect shape for my hourglass figure.
I don’t usually like too much print as it can feel fussy on my face however this is a simplistic  yet classy print. This one piece is sure to get a lot of wear this Spring/Summer, I may even get it out again tonight for a friends birthday celebrations, lets see. 

Mulberry At The Observatory.

Recently Mulberry went all out for a pretty epic bash at one of LA’s finest locations.
The Griffith Observatory hosted the event which showcased a whole load of Mulberry’s current fashions on a catwalk show which also had top music artists playing live music at the show, including singer/songwriter Tom Odell.
The event was attended by many a high fashion roller, all of whom were dressed to the nines in trendy high end fashions. 
My top three outfits worn by the guests were worn by none other than Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Suki Waterhouse and January Jones. The three stars dazzled at the event in a chic mix of neutral shades, and eye popping prints with natural make up creating three stunning looks. 
“Griffith Observatory for me is this iconic building on top of a hill where James Dean came, so the idea that we could come to this site and have a little piece of London here was a dream and overlooking the whole of Los Angeles,”  – Christopher Bailey 

Festival Inspiration From 2015 Coachella.

The first of the years big festivals (Coachella) has now been and gone seeing many different styles take to the green fields of the Indio polo grounds yet some of my favourite styles were seen on a few of my favourite fashionista celebrities. 
Celebrities such as Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Fergie, Kate Bosworth, Kendall Jenner, and Kimberley Garner went for neutral shades, a classy, elegant and contemporary bohemian style. They accessorised up with golden temporary tatoos, hats, headbands, golden chain belts, fringing, over sized sunnies, small crossbody bags simply for the essentials and multiple amounts of fine golden jewellery. 
 
I simply love all of these looks that I have chosen here but for my personal style I would have gone with a style similar to Rosie Huntington Whiteley or Fergie as this is of very similar style to what I would wear on a normal basis anyway.
Rosie’s light and airy Chloe dress is the perfect little number for a hot day at Coachella to feel stylish and cool, the perfect dress for day to night and if she was to attend an ‘Outstanding in the field’ dinner in the rose garden then this is the ideal outfit to feel a  little glam but also not too dressed up for attending the festival itself.
 
Pierce Brosnan was also seen in the VIP area working a loosely fitted white shirt and dark chinos combo looking stylishly suave, the perfect look for a guy for looking stylish and keeping cool in that hot dessert heat.
