You wouldn’t exactly call this movement minimalism but this F/w, 2016 designers really focused on creating the kind of everyday luxe clothes with simple pieces —with the added bonus of really interesting pattern cutting, puff fabrications or details. View Post
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;
You might have not known that the Trench coat was first an item of clothing designed for Army officers – It was created prior to the war but adapted for use in the trenches of the First World War, hence its name – but you could have recognised this “army officers” influence in its styling. Originally, the trench coat was belted at the waist with a self-belt, as well as having straps around the wrists that also buckle. A typical trench coat was a ten-buttoned, double-breasted long coat made with tan, black, khaki, or beige fabric and often has cuff straps.
But time has passed and trench coats have modernized and are now a must have for most wardrobes .Newer versions also come in many different patterns and colours .Which can be worn from casual to dressed up.With a denim and a tailored shirt for understated-cool or over shirts and knitwear for a colder seasons.Like in the First Look where I am channeling a Afro chic style in a vintage coat. It was the perfect piece to wear while attending a designer’s new shop opening in Portobello road.
The Second Look is very much inspired by the 40’s fashion when it was all about the hourglass shape,no cleavage was seen, blouses and jackets were fitted and little to no skin was shown.I remember wearing that look to church and got so many compliments from the older ladies…Mostly.
And the third look is a fresher and trendiest take where I wore the trench over a denim on denim look for a cooler and slicker style, during a weekend escape.
So let me know which look you will go for and how you style your trench coat.Also,I added a selection of some of my favorites fashion ladies.
