Sky blue

A colour that we all will already own and feel comfortable in, blue – whether in shades of sky, cobalt, navy or aqua – is a hue easy to pull off and feel feminine in.

With this in mind, here is an example of how to wear it…

Acne Studios Tillie leather sandals
Marc by Marc Jacobs blue sunglasses

Stripes – so basic you have worn them with everything – from chunky to a skinny railroad version – they are an easy print to pull off and basic enough to pair with other bold colours. Scroll on to see how you can earn your style stripes sporting this hot trend.

Peach Perfect

I am playing with pastels again! Check it out!

Don’t just sprinkle a bit of pastel here and there around the edges of your clothes. Dive right in, and go pastel head to toe with one bright colour.

If you end up with a glut, you can always keep it in the deep-freeze section of your wardrobe:)

Cutting edge print and digital extravaganza

Thanks to digital printing fashion designers have more freedom to be creative with textiles and fashion than ever before. The attention grabbing digital prints steal the spotlight at many a fashion show.
As a true fan of Mary Katrantzou surreal designs I decided to go all digital print!
I genuinely think this is the coolest leather jacket I own to date. I picked up this Mary Katrantzou Rodizo printed leather biker jacket on NET-A-PORTER sale (now unfortunately sold out).

Made in Italy from mid-weight leather, this off-white biker jacket features a notched collar with snapped lapel, an eye-catching graphic blue print alongside the sleeves. I love the unusual monochrome twirled buckled waist belt.

The jacket is indeed a living proof that no one can take Mary Queen of prints crown away!
I worked her signature look head-to-toe with this Palma metallic jacquard pencil skirt.

I absolutely adore the emerald, metallic green and gunmetal shades that go so well with the jacket.
An opulent medley of metallic embroidery and silk is not only super stylish but also edgy and chic.

I added statement See by Chloe off-white T-strap chunky heel pumps for a touch of elegance.
They perfectly balance grunge and ladylike style with elegant T-bar detailing, chunky heel and delicate ankle strap. I love the green welt piping too!

To finish off my spring peppermint-themed outfit, I went with this gorgeous Alexander Wang Rocco shoulder bag.
a

It is a much coveted and instantly recognisable cult bag featuring a classic satchel form with rock chic style including zinc studded base and peppermint pebbled-leather  The iconic bristle studded hardware and duffle-like shape give this fashionista must-have a very sought-after look.
For a hands-free style, carry it by the optional shoulder strap.
I love the signature dog clips and the exterior zipped gusset/pocket for smaller items.
Stylish, minimalist and practical, what else do you need?

Here comes the sun…

I am really hoping we are in for some nice weather here in London… finally!

I like playing with colours while creating my style and with grey and blue being my latest favorite, here is a taster of how chic and fashionable these colour combinations and various textures can be when cleverly put together.

I have recently discovered this fresh Parisian label ATTO brand while browsing NET-A-PORTER.

Atto’s collections combine Parisian elegance with Japanese wrapping techniques. They say “It’s about this balance between clean and sharp and really sensual”

I love the label’s directional take on this double breasted jacket made in France from mid-weight wool with a contrasting sharp point black denim collar. The wide leather belt is super flattering.

IMG_5774

IMG_5572

IMG_5584

I love the oversized fit, with drop shoulder seams, the contrasting black buttons adding a mod finish.

IMG_5473

I partnered it with my wardrobe stable –  these Marc by Marc Jacobs Mirah leather trousers with skinny-leg and a horizontal knee-seam with a top button and zip front fastening.

IMG_5588

IMG_5563

It is amazing how well they go with pretty much everything!

I added a splash of cobalt with this  Proenza Schouler Elliot shearling clutch bag: a perfectly-sized bag with a statement cobalt blue fur front flap. New York-based Proenza Schouler have always designed bags for It bloggers, uptown housewives, and trendy fashionistas, and they endeavour to keep their handbag momentum going with the introduction of this new style.

Epitomising the label’s contemporary and classic combo, this style has been crafted from shaved black shearling, smooth leather and suede.

To finish the look off I chose these gorgeous Proenza Schouler leopard print ponyskin courts I picked up on Yoox.

I love the V Shaped cut in line and slim heel which makes the shoes surprisingly comfortable.

Just my black Wayfarer Ray Bans and Links of London ring and voila!

Colour blocking in style

I love leather jackets so unsurprisingly,  over the years I have collected a fair number of them in various shapes and shades.

P1060811

My recent addition is this stunning Acne Studios chocolate Mabel jacket – a modern classic leather motorcycle jacket with a feminine waisted silhouette featuring stand up collar and padded shoulders.

P1060842

P1060839

The interior is lined with a warm faux astrakhan with the signature curved hem longer in the back.

P1060937

It has a heavyweight feel, so sure to keep you warm and cozy even in the coldest of weathers.

P1060928

P1060924

Low-key but luxurious, Acne Studios‘ jacket is perfect for casual dressing. I think it looks effortlessly cool with a pair of jeans or a funky skirt and ankle boots.

P1060894

P1060833

P1060834

I wore it with Club Monaco Mori mint and navy scuba asymmetric mini skirt that could truly be worn year-round. Club Monaco is a high-end casual clothing retailer owned by Polo Ralph Lauren I stumbled upon while browsing various on-line shopping destinations outside the UK. Worth checking out!

P1060926

P1060924

P1060920

P1060913

Unexpected and avant-garde, the skirt features bold colour blocking and a distinctive wrap-skirt silhouette finished with daring faux leather.

The mint, navy and black leather combination, and offset gunmetal zip create an interesting fusion of colour and texture.

P1060910

P1060884

P1060821

When in need of turning up the cool-factor of winter looks, put on those super soft dark green ankle boots from Chloé featuring almond toe and block heel.

I love everything about them, the super sleek look, dark shade of green and how comfortable are they!
