This season a new hot favourite has emerged – the Aviator jacket!
This season everyone has gone wild about this style! It started with Burberry and Giles bringing it to everyone’s attention on the catwalk. Since then it’s hit the highstreet with a massive reaction! It follows on from the military theme that’s a huge trend this year.
So want to know how to spot these jackets? Well, it’s all about the big collars and metal buckle detailing. They come in a range of colours from black, tan, chocolate and cream. To help you out we’ve picked out some of the best from the highstreet for you!
This fabulous jacket (left) is from Boohoo.com (£45.00). We love the chocolate fabric and huge collar!
On the right this jacket is from The Vestry (www.vestryonline.com) (£45.00). It has a lovely side zip effect with a slightly smaller collar. A slightly toned down take but still oozing style!
Our final jacket is this one from New Look (£39.99). We love the faux sheepskin effect and the deep brown colour. New Look also have matching heels in this style. Check them out now!
So what are you waiting for? Don’t be without an aviator jacket this season!
A new season is upon us and we’ve got the latest colours for the Autumn/Winter season. It’s been all a buzz on the catwalk as designers have been show casing their latest collections. And of course one of the most important parts of a new season collection is to get the colours right. This year the colours reflect an earthy and back to nature feel.
But it’s not all about the catwalk! These colours will soon be hitting the high street. Not sure where to find them? Well, don’t worry because we’ve got the definitive guide on how to get it right and wear to find these colours so you can make sure your wardrobe is bang up to date!
Staying in tune with military and uniform themes which have emerged this season, khaki is a huge colour this season. Khaki jackets and trousers are particularly popular. We love this cardigan from New Look (£18.00). It’s an easy way to add a bit of this colour to your look.
Nudes are back this season. This dress is from The Vestry(www.vestryonline.co.uk) (£32.99). It encompasses both the colour and the hugely popular one shoulder look so we think it’s the perfect dress for those nights out.
Greys are supposed to reflect the grey sky at this time of year. But it’s not all gloomy! This top from ASOS.com (£20.00) is stunning. It shows off your figure and adds some glamour to those every day looks.
Black is a classic that keeps coming back onto the catwalks. It’s hard to ever imagine it being out of fashion. This season coats hit our shops again and the weather starts to get colder. Staying with the military theme, this black jacket from boohoo.com (£40.00) is bang on trend and super warm for the winter!
So now you know the colours for the season and how to get the best looks this Autumn. What are you waiting for? Get shopping!
Madonna made the crop top massive in the 80′s and it was a huge trend in the 90′s… and now it seems it’s back on the catwalks! Making a surprise comeback, celebrities such as Cheryl Cole and Pixie Geldof have been spotted embracing this trend. Judging by the reaction on the catwalk this trend is set to be huge this Summer!
The Highstreet is filled with these tops like this floral print crop top from New Look (£14.99). It might seem a scary garment to wear but we think it’s easier than it might appear.
Here are our top tips to wearing this trend:
To make this look work you’ve got to be confident to bare some flesh- so don’t be shy!
2. Get the Right Length
This is important because you need to be comfortable to be confident with this look. If you’ve got the abs for it, go for short! But if you don’t want to reveal your whole stomach then try longer length cuts. You could even try cutting your own length to make it perfect!
If you don’t want to bare your stomach to the world then another fabulous alternative to this trend is to wear a crop top other a tank or vest top.
This Summer the catwalks are filled withtrends and one that the designers just can’t get enough of is white.
It seems that instead of the Little Black Dress, every girl’s wardrobe should be graced with the presence of a Little White Dress this Summer. White has always been a favourite at this time of the year but this season it’s just about everywhere.
It’s not enough to have just one white piece in your outfit, every garment needs to be white to pull of this season’s hottest trend. We love this dress by Gucci as seen on Vogue.com (left).
But if you find the idea of wearing all white a little daunting, we’ve found some fab items on the high street to help you out!
We love this White Dress from New Look, £25.00 (left). This dress is bang on trend and is perfect for both everyday looks or evening glamour. You simply can’t go wrong with this wardrobe must-have.
If you want to add abit of glamour to your evening look, this Karen Millen White Crochet Dress from ASOS.com, £22.00 (right) is unbeatable. We love the pretty crochet detailing and chic style. Perfect for those summer evening parties!
Now to finish of your outfit simply add a white bag and white gladiator sandals and you’ve achieved a look straight off of the catwalk!
