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.

Autumn Florals

Florals are in fashion all year long, but they don’t need to at all look saccharine. In fact, for fall/winter 2015, they have had a more boyish feel.

Swap pretty for edgy with a contemporary, masculine twist to keep florals looking fresh this fall.

Flush of blush

How about dusky pink? It might not be your favourite colour but certainly fashion is having an affection with it. Pink isn’t just about being “pretty” anymore…

Back to knit

It is that time of the year when we start thinking about softer and warmer textures and long for the jumpers stocked at the back of your wardrobe.
Today I have teamed up the super soft knit with heavy silk blend and pastels.

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:)

This stunning Mary Katrantzou Silk Blend Animal Print Jacquard dress I picked up on TheCorner sale is one of my favorite pieces to date. Inspired by the signature fifties New Look silhouette and styled in deep shades of jewel-toned jacquard, Mary Katrantzou‘s A-line dress is certainly a feminine choice for dress-up. Covered in abstract animal patterning, this shimmering piece lends evening looks a touch of whimsical.
I love the ink/black silk blend with bordeaux and silver-hued jacquard pattern.

To add a notch of modern classics I matched it with Acne Studios Mape Shearling-trimmed leather biker jacket from Net-a-Porter.

Designed with a detachable, plush stone lamb aviator-inspired shearling collar, rough downtown-luxe hardware and a chunky buckled belt, is one of the most coveted wardrobe staples among It girls. I love slightly boxy cut and the asymmetric zip.

I was aiming at that extra edge so slipped into these gorgeous Alexander Wang Lys polished leather ankle boots, also from Net-a-Porter.
Not only does Wang create most coveted accessories each season, but this time he also incorporates the runaway’s utilitarian feel injecting a dose of futuristic style into otherwise, daily-wear pieces.
These super cool Lys boots are crafted from polished-leather with an exaggerated, shield-like front panel. Finished with a well-balanced ostrich-effect heel, this backless,  gorgeous pair look best with shorter hemlines.

I accessorised with the cute cream socks to offset the black sheen of the ankle boots, Jaeger black ponyskin gloves and Fendi sunglasses.

Of course, I cannot forget to mention the fabulous Mary Katrantzou glossed MVK medium cross body bag!

The design behind this bag is truly genius, it is different to anything else I have seen. I love the way the flap comes over the bag like a lid closing the box off.
The structured shape makes it ideal for on-duty dressing, so you can style it with silk blouses or statement dresses.
This timeless bag is a true homage to understated luxury, featuring panels of super clean colour-block leather and a sleek magnetic gold-tone clasp. Geometric masterpiece in my favourite hues of navy and burgundy.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
