Florals, Frills & Fringe

As the first official days of summer are upon us, Britain finds themselves outside at events such as Glastonbury, various music festivals, summer beach holidays, outdoor stadium gigs and a patio pubs and parties.

Choosing the appropriate fabrics in summer can make a huge difference in comfort when weather is hot and muggy.  Florals, frills and fringe add movement and sophistication to a garment.

Watch my segment where I highlight floral, fringe and frilly pieces that England is loving in summer 2016!

Looking Fabulous at Every Age

Working at a clothing boutique in Hampstead I constantly I hear women saying “I can’t wear this, I’m too old!” They have a set of rules they have laid out for themselves such as, “I don’t show my arms”, “This skirt is too short”, “These jeans are too skinny”, etc. Yet there will be a women ten years their senior saunter into the shop right behind them and rock the same ensemble, loving the reflection staring back at them in the mirror.

Why is this? A couple of things.  Yes, there is something to be said about “age appropriate clothing”, but it more has to do with assessing your own personal body at whatever age you are at and being honest with yourself about whether you are comfortable and confident in what you are wearing.

This weeks styling focuses on looking fabulous at every age.  Jumpsuits by Nicole Miller and DVF, dresses by Rag & Bone, Essential, YFB and much more!

Three looks for your 20’s, 30’s and 40’s…whilst there are arguments for what types of fashion/clothing is “age appropriate”, the counter argument can be made that as long as you’re comfortable in what you choose to wear and “own it”, age is but a number in fashion!

High waisted printed trousers to look fab in your 40’s!

I styled Chrissy in highwaisted “Montreal” trousers by Essentiel, and an amazing top by Rag and Bone.  The arm cutouts are perfect for a glam evening look.

For myself I chose a floral lace jumpsuit by Nicole Miller with a plunging neckline and mesh open back…no bras with this baby!

My makeover of the week was the lovely Marcia. Marcia has an “apple shape” figure and great care needs to be taken in order to  choose clothing that will flatter.  Here Marcia models a fabulous orange Bardot style dress with Sam Edelman wedges.  Being in her 20’s it’s Marcia’s time to experiment with clothing, colours, styles, her time to develop her own sense of style.  She does a wonderful job styling herself and has come such a long way from where she was at.  Listen to her story in the video segment above.

Summer of “Bardot” Top…

This summer British fashion is going crazy for ‘Bardot tops’, or in particular, the Bardot neckline (a wide open neck that exposes both shoulders).

This look was popularised by the beautiful French actress Brigitte Bardot.  This style was especially used for knitted sweaters or jumpers although it is also used for other summer fabric tops and dresses.

Watch my fashion segment as I speak more in depth about the different types of Bardot tops Britain is currently wearing as well as tips and tricks to style them for that perfect elegant summer look.

Rag & Bone…Le Smoking!

New York cool Rag & Bone sets the bar high this spring with their smoking hot Arrow pant and Windsor jacket.  The silhouette is straight, skinny and cropped with chic tailoring and extra details such as a turned up collar option with white underneath.

Rag & Bone’s Windsor jacket is a great investment piece for Spring 2016. Loving the turned up collar with white detailing.
