5 New Style Updates...

This going to be a long post, got loads to tell you guys! Hot new winter style updates have arrived (plus, mince pies are finally in supermarkets!) and I want to be the first (maybe second after Look Magazine ruined it!) to tell you all the hints and secrets...feel free to put your own stamp on anything because this is the winter where anything goes! Here it goes...

Faux Leather Leggings

These go with practically anything from a chunky grey sweater to a girly chiffon blouse. I like to play up the preppy side of these with chunky brogues, tweed blazer and a white tee. Sounds a little strange but it actually works, especially with the right accessories and makeup. It also works (another trend...) if you have them just slightly above the ankle and then with pointed courts (think Elle Macpherson and Kate Bosworth style).

Knee-High Socks
These look great under boots, they're definitely the new accessory power player. Stiletto courts will look way too 'school disco'. Style them with tonal layered knits for a cosy, apres-ski vibe. These Jack Wills ones are so cosy and warm, style these with brown leather boots or even wellies!

Tweed Sets

 It started with matching short suits and now the coolest trend trailblazers are taking it a step further in prim skirt and jacket sets. The best come from Topshop or invest in a real tailored set. Pencil skirts can be a little frumpy so why not just an inch shorter (careful where you go with this, go to your local tailor for extra help). This look can either go with brogues or chunky flats (take notes from Prada A/W!) or for a sexy smart look opt for heels. Don't forget, you don't always have to wear them as a set, the jacket can look great with jeans as it does with the matching skirt. Plus, the tweed is major cosy come Winter!


Metallics can be dressed up or down. It's great come them Christmas do's! It doesn't have to necessarily be a blazer like the one above, it can be a skirt, trousers, jeans, top, blouse...anything! For day, think tops, cardigans etc. as its more casual teamed with jeans. For night think lower half of the body for extra impact like skinny jeans, skirt or a pair of shorts styled with something neutral. Always, whether its top or bottom half, have neutral makeup and minimalistic accessories.  


No, not the Superman type...the high-fashion type! I love this style, a circular silhouette but still is so hot! Too 'different' for you? Well, don't worry I felt a bit like that the first time I saw it, make sure its a neutral like the one from Topshop above. Also, pair it with skinnies, otherwise the whole silhouette of your body will be washed away and make you look fat not curvy!

There are so many other trends this winter but these are the main ones....bye girleeees!
