STYLE ADVICE: Something for the weekend

Posted on: February 19, 2016


I mentioned yesterday that New York fashion Week street style – where most of the fashion actually happens – was all about statement coats and statement boots. Your coats need a capsule wardrobe approach too, think a basic like a parka + investment like your classic tailored black coat + a trend update, or statement coat. This leopard print faux-fur piece from Mango is not only on sale but as well as giving a catwalk update it’s also in one of those prints that is really timeless. It’s hard to find a stylish jumper without embellishment that is both cosy but also something that you can wear for a day-to-night look. This slim fit black piece from Reiss has an usual sheer panel detail at the neckline that also runs down the arm. Just add heels to your jeans for a night out or style with a leather pencil skirt. Remember when Levi’s were the only denim brand you ever wanted? I wish had kept all my Levi’s jeans because the company has given their denim a style reboot and it’s back up there with the best of them – at a fraction of the price. Sticking to the nostalgia theme…do you also remember when, thanks to Tom Ford, Gucci loafers became more than just a social status number but also a fashion must-have. The Gucci loafer-mood is back in full force from designer to high street (you might like Zara’s tan suede version here or John Lewis’ red suede style here). These Saint Laurent glasses will keep you in the contemporary-retro mood. Natalie x
