If your anything like me, you will enjoy flicking through magazines and some will aspire to look similar to what we see in the magazines. l am here to show you, you can look as great as the models in the magazines. If we strip away the glamour and marketing it's all about the fashion and styling.
Forget Michael Kors ladies, l've got something better for you. In this blog l share the latest high fashion trends l picked out when flicking through from the magazines. And to let you know you can look great too with some simple tips and fashion advice.
I've always loved the minimalist Armani fashion ora and their top trend this year is clutch bags with a horizontal strap. The strap should hug your wrist and then rests on your fingers - very chic!
Burberry's all about that classic Burberry trench coat. It does not dare to go out of fashion and can be rocked in most weathers in Britain. You don't need to be Cara Delevingne to look awesome.
If you want to recreate the Swarovski look it's all about accessorising with statement jewellery. You can wear a simple black v-neck with tan leather jacket with chunky gold jewellery. The jewels should do the talking!
Tiffany & Co take a more relaxed, everyday approach where they combine a panelled white blouse and long necklace chain. Not forgetting to top it all off you can just add complimentary bracelets or a watch.
Bally has to be my current favourite for power dressing for office wear. Their style is all about capes, block heel ankle boots matched with a dark red handbag. The colour of the handbag does make a big difference as any lighter red would have made the handbag stand out like a sore thumb. The richer red also gives it a sophisticated look. These little elements make a big difference in an outfit.
Chloe are trending on their new collection of bags that features snakeskin finished with gold detailing and paired with an off-white blouse. In this ensemble the snakeskin bag has to do all the talking.
I would suggest jeans and simple high heels to finish the look. And natural lipstick as one wrong note and you could look classy to peaking on trashy. The same applies to most animal print fashion.
Louis Vuitton was one of my favourite styles. Forget the 'LV' monogram bags, they are so out of season! It's all simple and sexy at LV in 2015.
The new Louis Vuitton style consists of white jumpers, jeans, beige court heels and pale pink bag. All the colours tie in nicely. As LV have done you can add darker lipstick as your outfit is slightly more plain than the Chloe look.
Versace has spoken, bright red bags with gold detailing are in. It needs to be stern quality paired with wavy roller hair and a black coat with gold detailing again.
The secret is attention to detail counts with all the high-end designers. And buying classic, staple items that are top quality - TK Maxx has to be one of my favourites for finding classic staples if you look and shop hard enough at their thousands of branches. It's a bit like looking for a husband :D It's not easy, it does take time to master but you need to be a dedicated shopper to want to shop around and be patient!
