Lilac Edit

It is much easier to work out how to wear lilac once you start thinking of it as pink for grown-ups.

Lilac works best when there is a lot of it, and it is not too fussy. A lilac outfit, with clean lines and simple accessories, will look a great deal less old lady-ish and is straightforward way of making a wallflower colour more assertive.

Burgundy and Grey

Thanks to its associations with warm mulled wine, burgundy feels like the perfect hue for this time of year. Throw in a big helping of grey and you have a colour combo that is quickly becoming a fashionista’s favourite.

The appeal of teal

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and are all looking forward to the wonders of 2015! It has been a while since my last post as I was enjoying my down-time off-line! I have somehow resisted featuring any glitzy and Christmassy ensembles, instead went for not-so-festive yet still funky winter leather outfit.

Working with different shades of ivory, charcoal and black, Rick Owens is the king of avant-garde dazzle. You can always count on adding the edge to your urban wardrobe with the Paris-based designer’s luxe leather jackets.

This Rick Owens Winged Salon shearling-lined leather jacket I picked up on theOutnet is one of a kind!
I love the rich pumpkin shade and the distressed leather look with shearling-lined collar. The oversized, cropped style and asymmetric snap fastening at front give the jacket uber cool look. The sleeves are fairly long so not to everyone’s liking but I adore this daring cut and fit.

Carven is yet another label on the list of my favourite brands working Parisian elegance and eclectic aesthetics. This asymmetric statement skirt is certainly having its moment and it is easy to see why with Carven‘s vivid teal version.

A geometric hem – longer at the back – and tactile wool bouclé sets it apart.

I am back with yet another of Alexander Wang‘s designs. I picked up these dark brown Anouck cutout-heel leather ankle boots on theOutnet.

I love the wedge cut-out leather heel with metal hardware plate that truly makes these boots unique.
The elasticated side panels and a pull tab at the rear create no-fuss slip on and off. They are very comfortable, too!
