Perfect Pleats

The pleated skirt has been around for several seasons and each time it is styled in a new way, making it ever more appealing and a fail safe wardrobe piece.

This AW16 is no exception and it is now the perfect piece to go from desk to dinner and even works for the cool masculine dresser to the ultra feminine girl. My favourite ideas for each look are below.

Cocktail Hour

Bag- STELLA MCCARTNEY £1096, Skirt- MAJE £209

Femme Fatale

Jumper- REISS £135, Skirt- BCBGMAXAZRIA £199

Cool Girl

Boots- ACNE £390, Skirt- MAX MARA £265

I could easily wear all of these looks as they really translate into my every day life and lend themselves to that well put together yet effortless vibe all Scandinavians evoke. I will definitely be making sure I find a new pleated skirt which is going to slot straight into my autumn wardrobe!

White Out

We haven’t quite yet had the white christmas we all dream of every year, nor has it felt particularly cold this Winter. Something which could be set to change from next week, but as always will leave us pining for pistes, apes ski and luxuries such as big down coats, fur and chunky knits.

I had considered blogging about these items which are staples in any luxury wardrobe, but I thought I would look instead at Spring/Summer’s next big trends in 2016. Cue, the opposite to fashions staple Black, and lots of transparency- which will also be key this season

Think clean lines and shapes, pure White, great fabrics; sheer, and some killer contemporary accessories. Then you have a outfit worthy of the likes of Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner- that luxe 90’s polished vibe.
