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.

Hide the Christmas flab with Rails, Paige, 360 Sweater & more

This weeks styling for The Chrissy B Show featured looks by
designer’s like, Paige, FrameSam EdelmanEssentiel, Rails and more.

For Monday’s show the theme was dressing to “hide the Christmas flab”, that extra couple of pounds some of us may have gained over the holiday season. Using dark colours and finding garments with appropriate structure will hide any unwanted bulges until your New Years gym resolutions kick in.

Chrissy is wearing black skinny jeans by Frame and black ankle boots by the German designer Liebeskind.

On top she is wearing an American Vintage vest and an orange and black structured biker jacket by Pyrus.

The black side paneling and off centre zipper are both great features to slim and draw attention away from the midriff area.

I’m wearing a shirt dress by Los Angelos designer Rails. Rails garments have luxiourious fabrics that feel great against the skin and there is no need to wear a layer underneath.

A shirt dress is an amazingly versatile garment for the Spring/Summer wardrobe and can be worn in many different ways as it serves as a shirt or a dress.  The drawstring allows you to change the shape of the garment to your body.

I styled mine with black skinny jeans by Paige and fringed ankle boots by Sam Edelman.

DSC_9428Another look you could try to hide excess flab is a high waisted jean with a crop top look.

A high waisted jean such as the one I’ve styled Maegan in by Paige acts as a corset top and finishes high just below the bellybutton.

Cropped knitwear by 360 Sweater, studded ¾ boots by Italian designer Vic, and a statement necklace by Oasis completes the look.

For Wednesday’s show this week I’ve styled Chrissy B in a mini DSC_9395lipstick print drawstring dress by 0039 Italy.

The lightweight fabric with adjustable drawstrings allow you to change the shape of the dress from tight and form-fitting to loose and oversize depending on your mood and the look you are going for.

The dress is part of 0039 Italy’s newest Spring/Summer 15 collection, but you don’t have to wait a couple of months to wear it. Just style appropriately to match the weather. I’ve paired the dress with thick black tights and black ankle boots by German designer Liebeskind.

Layering with gilets, leather, lace and fur

This week on The Chrissy B Show  designers garments in different fabrics were layered together to create the perfect transitional Autumn look .

 Host Chrissy B

I styled Chrissy B in a silk Pyrus blouse with silver sequin detail, leather look Citizens of Humanity jeans and Sam Edelman grey studded stilettos.  A “dip-dye” look fur gilet by Butterfly Copenhagen completes the glam rocker look.

Stylist Cynthia Liza

I went for a similar look with an all black base consisting of leather-look trousers by Helmut Lang, a long sleeved lace top by Rabens Saloner, and Sam Edelman ankle boots.  An oversized gilet by Furst add layer and texture to the outfit.

 

 

Maegan is wearing a silk blouse by Diane von Furstenberg with a subtle star print on the collar and black denim by Goldsign with Vic ankle boots. You can change the look by adding layers such as this black biker leather jacket and then topping the jacket with a gilet.
