If you have been following my blog you will notice this setting is different from my usual outdoor pictures. This is the studio where I film my Youtube videos that hope you have checked out as it is a journey I have really wanted to start for a while. But finally it’s live and running. So make sure you subscribe and you will always be the first to be notify of my fashion ventures.
In this post it is all about layering for different seasons.
A lot of us have a totally different wardrobe for each season, but most of us don’t. I have always loved the idea of making the most out of clothes so let me share a few tricks with you.
Velvet and surreal stripes, that were seen on the catwalk at Valentino and Haider Ackermann, inspired this outfit : a Velvet blazer. In order to layer this outfit for Autumn, add a blazer of your choice, a scarf is optional and for shoes anything from Chelsea boots to ankle boots or even cool trainers for a smart retro take.
In Spring, layers come off and we start wearing a jumper

We add a trench coat,plus over the knee boots, a scarf and we are sorted.
Back to Autumn again,
Here, we add a brown tweed blazer , then play with the autumnal colors.
We add a pastel touch as the sun start to shine and our feet can finally breathe,therefore this pair of high heels sandals or some ankle boots will be just fine too.
Summer -Hooray!!time to shine bright with a touch of prints!!
Close up Details;
In this serie of fall for brown is all about that time of year where less skin is shown and most colors get tonned down.
1-I wore this outfit for lunch during my stay in Cambridge a while back.It is about playing with different shades of brown and earthy hues.The cropped and tailored jacket is a perfect piece for this time of the year.
The texture of the fabric is worn but with authentic detail. The A line tie die skirt has a splash of blue between the tones of brown which brings a lovely highlight in the two tones.I paired the outfit with my beloved red ankle Casadei boots bringing a contrast accent to the whole look.Also to keep up with the earthy tones, I added the an artisan pair of earrings.

2-The second outfit was worn when I went shopping for boxing day in Central London.The style is all about comfort and mixing yet matching different textures. With the wide velvet pair of trousers which is a favorite ,paired with a denim shirt, a wardrobe staple.But could also be paired with a white t-shirt for the cool girls and a pair of converse trainers if you just can’t be bothered with heels.Then I added the chocolate brown wool grid trench,which is nicely tailored with modern finishes.

3-The third outfit,is the smart and sassy lady who has an edge.With the layering of a black turtle neck tank under the sturdy wrapped up kimono. Perfect for work, a meeting with clients or ladies of creative field on an Autumn day. With an addition of the classic Prada Saffiano bag.Overall we have conservative look, yet thought-through.

With fashion constantly travelling back and forth, I like to think that whatever we wear, doesn’t have to belong to a specific time of trends,so that we are simply never out of fashion and always try to remain true to myself.
So this Autumn/winter consider shade of brown as a substitutes for black and style your favorites with mellow tones.If brown isn’t for you,find a way to bring different shades of the same color ,by adding different styles and graphic print patterns.
PS: Don’t underestimate the elegance of a conservative ensemble. If well-fitting and properly styled, modest pieces become more stylish than stuffy.
So let me know,how will you be styling your shades this winter?Share with me.Let’s talk fashion!!!

So I went to lunch by the Canal with a friend the other day, and I absolutely wanted to look the part and match the scenery.I went on for a total stripes look.
Striped shirts were originally sailor uniforms.As they were designed to help distinguish the sailor from the wave so you could find them more easily if/when they fell over.Back then,a lot of French navy were from Great Britain.So they called the shirt;Breton and displayed 21 stripes.One for each Napoleon’s victories against the British.And since then(1930’s) Breton stripes have become a real fashion staple.
