I have just recently come across a shop which is now on my must sees when I am next in the US. Continue reading “Aritzia- The Coats To Rival Canada Goose”
This weekend just gone I spent a lovely, long weekend in Belgium. This included the sights of Ghent, Brussels, Leuven and Bruges, accompanied with Waffles, Chocolate and Mulled Wine- the sign of a great christmas filled weekend with good friends! Whilst there I came across an amazing store in Ghent, housed in the newly renovated Post Building on Korenmarket.
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.
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!
After Storm Jonas’s snow days across the East Coast last week, it had everyone reaching for their essentials that every wardrobe needs to function in a storm- A sturdy boot, A wool turtle neck, A waterproof Parka, A beanie hat and the year round accessory- sunglasses.
Now if you are style conscious like me, then you don’t just want to be wearing any old thing… I want to have amazing quality, ultra luxurious fabrics and obviously chic staples to pull out of hibernation every year.
My top 5 picks to ensure you are wrapped up warm and look remotely less windswept are above; Wool, Cashmere, Suede, Fur- pure luxury. From the Iconic statement Canada Goose, to the basic wool turtleneck, whichever you decide to add to your collection this year make sure it is timeless and an investment( think cost per wear)!
So as the days grow darker and greyer, we know Winter is fast approaching and colder nights are to come.
One of my favourite things about Winter is layering and my inspiration for dressing is Scandinavian Street Style. I. Love. It. However, I will save that for another post, and instead my next favourite thing at this time of year- Grey.
It is so versatile, whatever the fabric or cut there is so much potential to make a simple outfit into a chic and elevated look. A few of my favourite looks are above and show just how easy it is to wear this colour and not look drab.
