Gentlewoman

Happy Friday. Hope you all have had a lovely week.

I wore this outfit a while back when it was miserable and cold. Pinstripes were very much in, during the A/W 2013-14 season. It is the year of Gentlewoman.

I wore a Pinstripe dress over a puffy sleeve shirt and you all know I love some colour, had to bring some warmth to the dull weather at the time- so I wore it with blue suede heels and a wine coloured handbag.

The Pinstripes and Gentlewomen trend was seen in designers collections like Stella McCartney, Maison Martin Margiela and Marc Jacobs in the A/W 2013-14 season.

Stella McCartney’s collection in particular showcased the Pinstripes trend well, where she tapped back into her Saville Row background and her signature style (menswear fabrics, sporty luxe, sweatshirt dresses). The masculine-feminine collection was very much Stella.

A/W Guide 2013/2014

A/W Guide 2013/2014

I know I am a bit late, with my guide the ‘Autumn/Winter fashion guide 2013/2014’. However, remember it is never too late to give a few pointers when it comes to shoes, handbags, jewellery and clothing. From tartan to checks to the full skirt, there is something for everyone to love.

Here are my pointers:

Tartan & Checks

As seen at: Celine, Versace, Givenchy, Tommy Hilfiger,  Mulberry & Saint Laurent

Tartan & Checks

Left: Michael Kors

Right: Clements Ribeiro

Tartan is the print for Autumn/Winter this year. Checks were worn head to toe on the runway. Do not be afraid to clash checks together. For those who are afraid of clash mania, try out a tartan jacket or coat or add even a tartan scarf to your outfit.

The Skirt

As Seen at: Celine, Jill Sander,  Victoria Beckham, Stella McCartney

The Skirt

Left: Victoria Beckham

The skirt is longer, midcalf and  full. The runway focused on femininity, instead of the sexy mini, it is the knee length skirt which best captures a woman. From the elegant sleek pencil skirts to the fifties inspired full skirts-pair it with a knit, flats or chunky ankle boots.

Cover Yourself

As Seen at: Carven

In this chilly weather, you would want to keep warm. With the news of a extremely cold winter this year, why not make a statement with your coat? This year coats are oversized, big or streamlined, boyish or womanly, richly coloured or pale. Coats come pink and sleeveless-there is something for everybody.

Colours

It’s all about the pale baby colours. Pale pinks and pale blues, all inspired by the 60s. However not only does pink come pale, but in different variants-dusty berry and shocking pinks.
