Purple pleats

Happy Sunday everyone. It has been a lovely day, hasn’t it? Hope you all had a lovely weekend.

I do not usually have braids. But I l do love it, you can just wake up and go without any major styling. I also put some colour in my hair. Although I love colour generally, I’m usually a no no when it comes to the colour in the hair. I stick to 1B and that’s me, but my Auntie who does my hair persuaded me to have a change. And…I love it.

I wore this outfit two weeks ago and paired a white leather top with a purple pleated skirt and a cream longline sleeveless blazer.

The leather top is actually a crop top and comes up to my belly button. It is quite a long crop top, or maybe because I am short and it comes out bigger. I tucked it into the pleated skirt and belt.

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

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.

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.
