Having skimmed through some of the AW17 NYC & London shows its clear to see that colour colour and more colour is everywhere. There is no real trend happening just that different fabrics from velvet, tulle, silk and lace to metallics, embellishment and prints, and styles from decades past are all on the horizon. I think it would be pretty accurate to say just about anything goes really. And I think that’s wonderful as that is what fashion is all about, from that, individuals can create their own styles.
One trend I am talking about today is Gingham! I do love a bit of gingham but at the same time I feel one needs to tread carefully when choosing to dress in gingham, lets remember gingham has dressed many a tea table and jam jar for decades. If the incorrect garment is chosen and styled badly then you’re not going to be doing this trend or yourself justice. My high street hits below.
Gingham blouse with tie sleeves here
If you know the styles I go for as often as possible you will know this style ticks all boxes, floaty, full sleeves, great length and such a cute fabric to match although it’s not a cute dress, I feel the style of the dress really balances out the fabric ensuring its not too girly. Especially worn with a pair of converse 😉 Buy here
This shirt is great for dress up a pair of high waisted jeans and a blazer, love the ruffles in all the right places. Shop here
This is a favourite, tried and tested I loved it on, I also felt its is such a versatile top, from wearing it with a pair of shorts to a pair of leather trousers in the evening, this top can really be casual or smart. Shop here
This doesn’t come cheap but this embellishment!!! Shop here
If you’ve got a long torso, finding the right jumpsuit can be tricky, usually the Tall department is where you need to shop. This Jumpsuit looks super cool and again could go from the office with heels and a blazer, straight to the beach with slides. LOVE – shop here
