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…

Alexander Wang silk-crepe shirt dress

T by Alexander Wang Bonded textured-leather biker jacket

Acne Studios Tillie leather sandals
Marc by Marc Jacobs blue sunglasses

Links of London sterling silver sweetie bracelet and Zanzibar wide bangle

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.

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!

When cashmere meets wool

“Baby, it is cold outside” is certainly the new London theme tune right now as it got really chilly out here.

I am the last person to welcome the wintry blasts but before I settle comfortably into my cosy shearling coats and knee high boots, there are a couple of less heavy-duty outfits I would like to share.
When it comes to knits, cashmere is the king, this ultra soft fabric is a symbol of opulence and unparalleled comfort.

I have found this lovely Marc by Marc Jacobs cashmere tulle frill neck jumper on one of recent wanders at the local TX Maxx in the City. Trust Marc By Marc Jacobs to inject this wardrobe classic with a fun feminine twist giving the essential plain black sweater a fashion-forward update! Amp it up with the optional tulle collar when the mood takes you!
The collar is button detachable and features semi-sheer polka dot tulle frill embellishment.

I love contrasting and complementing colours and colour blocking is one of my favourite styles so I opted for this gorgeous JAEGER Italian Melton wool Pencil Skirt in fabulous oxblood. This beautifully cut pencil skirt with a smooth waistband and split at the front and back is so figure skimming and a must for the office or evening drinks. It looks equally marvelous with a silk blouse!

I kicked the outfit off with a pair of Preen for Aldo Pravda Rise pumps featuring a pointy toe, patchwork leather detail and bold block heels that not only elongate your legs, but also keep feet comfortable.
I love these heels for the unusual V-shaped front finish and grainy feel to the leather.

Modern Monochrome

There’s been one overwhelming winner for fashion trends of the season in my wardrobe – the monochrome. I absolutely adore this eternally chic combination, no surprise I have accumulated a fair amount of black and white separates I chop and change as I go.

P1040951

Monochrome is simple but wearing it requires a bit of forethought. The key is to choose the right monochrome for you, and style it up (but not too much) and this is yet another of my takes on this extraordinarily versatile look.

P1040943

P1040938

P1040937

Take a look at this loose fitting Marc By Marc Jacobs White Cleo Quilted Raglan Top I picked up some time ago at FarFetch.

P1040089

Originally set up as a diffusion line by Marc Jacobs, the brand is now run by the esteemed British duo Luella Barleya and Katie Hillier who injected into the brand a lot of cool tailoring and fresh graphics.

P1040991

This stretch-cotton top is a true style powerhouse with its elaborate quilting and oversized raglan sleeves. I am fond of the zip-trim shoulders that certainly make the top look more interesting.

P1040990

P1040977

P1040975

P1040956

P1040957

As a contrasting separate, I chose these laid back luxe wrapped trousers from Superfine I bought last year on one of my favourite online shopping destinations – COCOSA.

P1040984

Made from super soft black cotton, they have a subtle wrap look detail on the front and two side slit pockets on the hips. I love the tapered legs and ankle skimming cuffs with zip fastenings. A bit punk, a bit purist Perfect for a lazy afternoon out!

P1040989

Established in 2003 by Lucy Pinter and Flora Evans, Superfine is recognised as an innovative style leader, creating rock and roll jeans with a real London attitude. The designs embrace denim’s effortlessness, with the focus on fit and fabric with clever, often hidden, details.

P1040996

P1040002

I picked my favourite Alexander Wang Lovisa embossed peroxite white lizard-effect leather pumps to complement the look. I got them up over summer on sales at Jades24, unfortunately, now sold out.

P1040009

They are the most stylish and comfortable heels I own, that’s probably why I am a proud owner of these beauties in three different colours including black and blood orange!

P1040014

These Lovisa pumps are made from peroxide snake embossed leather and feature a sleek ankle strap, both practical and chic, it will seamlessly take you from season to season.

P1040019

I simply adore the stiletto high elegant tapered toe with t-strap and a side buckle fastening that transforms this classic style into something utterly modern.

Splash of yellow – ROKSANDA ILINCIC Light yellow Estes Charteuse T-shirt

Most of us are gearing their wardrobe up for autumn where layering is a must. I, however, am still holding a strong grip on the bold colour block silk tops I grew to love over the past few months.

This is my take on how to match silk with leather. Love it, hate it? Let me know.

P1030908

I love a splash of colour in my outft, be it a work wear or a going-out attire. When I spotted this gorgeous ROKSANDA ILINCIC Light yellow Estes Charteuse T-shirt on matchesfashion.com I knew I had to have it.

P1030920

This chartreuse-yellow silk-crepe blouse makes a bold and colourful statement. I love the contrasting grey Peter Pan collar, closely-fit round-neck with a back-neck hook and an over-sized silhouette. The juxtaposed textured silk and crepe front panel make it definitely a very interesting mix. 

P1030924

P1030927

P1030930

Create a vibrant, off-duty look and team it with leather pants and soaring heels.

P1030933

P1030939

P1030941

I have gone with these Marc by Marc Jacobs Mirah leather trousers with skinny-leg and a horizontal knee-seam with a top button and zip front fastening. I paired it with these gorgeous Alexander Wang Maja pleated suede and patent-leather pumps to complement the look (still available on theoutnet)

P1030948

The striking pleated suede, cut-out side and an open pointed toe make these pumps even more appealing, channeling Wang’s enticing nonchalance.

P1030953

P1030957

P1030990

P1030962

P1030975

P1030978

I put on these super cool Balenciaga round frame gunmetal tone sunglasses with dark grey lenses, to finish off the look (on sale at theoutnet). I love the grey matte finish and slightly curved dropped designer-stamped arms that give off the maverick look.

P1030982

P1030983

I have accessorised with my favourite Links of London sterling silver Annoushka dome amethyst drop earrings.

P1030989

P1030984

I have recently worn this outfit for the Bloggers Love Fashion Week Gifting Event and it was the ultimate test to its wearability! Stylish and practical – what else you need?

HOBBS London Ivette Top

There was nowhere to hide from pony skin last winter. As a result, pony skin was the most sought-after textile of the season which brings me to this hot to trot Hobbs London Ivette Top. Perfect for day or night, the ponyskin feel is luxurious to the eye and touch while the T-shirt design gives it a nonchalant edge.
But how to wear it? With texture, very much like print, mixing things up is key, so don’t be afraid to clash. Leather trousers look great, I paired it with bright Fuchsia Marc By Marc Jacobs peep toe shoes.
I really like its soft leather varnished effect and covered cone heel. The pumps look and feel great, still on sale at Yoox.
