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 burst of orange

When it comes to fashion, I always get excited with bursts of bright colours. Perhaps, this is why I love this outfit; bold, funky and it makes me smile!

P1060753

This Carven bright orange Faux fur-trimmed wool blend coat combines elegant cuts with directional detailing, it is one of those off-the-wall jackets with a Parisian twist, either you love it or hate it!.
I like its loose fit, detachable collar, buttoned flap pockets and zipped back vent.

I matched orange with yellow going for this Jonathan Saunders Maryse knitted cotton sweater.

The fluorescent peach and yellow juxtaposed against black ribbed trims create an almost intoxicating pattern that you just can’t stop looking at. It is without a doubt, one of my favourite jumpers.

Create a vibrant, off-duty look and team it with leather pants and soaring heels.
Black leather pants always go extraordinarily well with bright tops so I went with these Marc Jacobs Mirah leather trousers with skinny-leg and a horizontal knee-seam.

Mad Hatter Style – Going Retro

I find that playing around with different styles is not only immensely enjoyable, but it also makes me scrutinize my fashion limitations. Experimenting with new pieces and trends pushes me out of my comfort zone, and as a result it boosts my confidence, making me completely at ease with everything I wear.

I’m playing Mad Hatter in today’s look, going with a more vintage inspired outfit. I love the idea of a wide brim hat however, I never bought myself a proper one, simply assuming it would be a bit too inconvenient to carry if I decide to take it off! As a part of an experiment to get me into wearing more hats I bought this black Primark felt fedora hat, and I could not have been happier with it!

P1050831

The pretty vintage-inspired bow makes it easy to wear with a furry winter coat or a short shearling jacket,

Made from soft wool, this wide-brimmed feldora hat is perfect for those chilly Saturday shopping trips or Sunday lunches and at £8, it surely is a foolproof accessory you can’t afford to miss!

I mixed it with this cosy Faux fur collar maxi cardigan, also from Primark.

P1050848

P1050850

Funky, stylish and practical with a touch of American retro! I love the way it is complemented by the hat and how unasumingly cool and off-duty it makes the whole outfit look.

P1050859

Layering is great for winter, so I opted for this sumptuously soft CARVEN Green Tigerintarsia Knitted Sweater I picked up from theOutnet. I love the teal / coral nylon and mohair-blend and tiger stripe design that goes so well with natural tone of the leggings!

P1050863

P1050929

These Donna Karan New York Seamed skinny rattan pants are one of the classic body pants, designed with lines and seams that make the difference tracing the silhouette, accentuating the positive through sculpting, shape and structure, also engineered to elongate the leg.

This is what you call a great easy chic look for busy ladies!

P1050942

I popped on these Sam Edelman Petty Sued Booties I picked up on BrandAlley. With one of the season’s hottest silhouettes, they are on my top 10 perfect flat booties list!

Sam Edelman shoes are defined by a strong eye for fashion so no wonder that after more than 30 years in the industry, he has honed his craft to design shoes that reflect his creative sensibility and confident style. His expressive signature on the insole of his shoes has become an iconic hallmark of quality.

My favourite features are stacked heel and tonal grosgrain piping at the notched top line.

As I decided to inject some colour I opted for this gorgeous Jonathan Saunders Radka peony jacquard skirt and  Zoe Wave Intarsia knit Sweater I picked up on sale from matchesfashion.com and TheOutnet.

Jonathan Saunders has become of of my favourite designers with his masterful use of colour, silk screen printing and tailoring that never fails to create an excitement at London Fashion Week, I love the way the classic striped print for Pre-AW14 forms an inspiration for the wave intarsia graphics. It is a refreshingly modern take on otherwise, run-of-the mill pattern.
