Crimson Rose : Floral Skater Skirt and Crimson Top

A cheery Monday to you all!

You would have realised the minor changes I was tweaking to my blog over the weekend. Decided to add a little more " colour" ( so to speak!) to make it more interesting. What do you think?

Getting new followers on IG and FB over the weekend and also recently discovered new fashion bloggers I personally would be following, so I hope to be inspired by them and bring you more exciting posts in the near future.

Keeping covered whilst the sun blazes on for the start of the week.







Have a great week ahead and do stay tuned for my take on New York's Fashion Week S/S 2015 trends.

Styling Stripes : Colour Block Stripe Top and Peplum Stripe Skirt

Thank God It's Friday !

How quickly the week has just flown past. Decided to play with variations of stripes in an outfit. Colour block striped top paired with a peplum monochrome striped pencil skirt. Of course my web inspired belt is shaped in some geometric form of stripes as well and not forgetting stripy T-shaped heels which perfectly suits the whole theme.

Styled it with a 3/4 Pouf Sleeve Jacket for colder days/ nights or for work. And added a layered tribal style necklace for that additional pop of colour.





Easily take off the jacket for after work drinks, dinner dates or just a night out on the town with the girls. 






With Fall/ Autumn around the corner trending Stripes and Colour blocking, start having fun experimenting with variations of stripes in an outfit and you would be surprised at how easy it is to style this look.

My Favourite Fall Fashion Trends 2014 - Part 3

Hi everyone.

In this final instalment on " My Favourite Fall Fashion Trends - Part 3", I am looking forward to trending these easy styles of outfits for Fall 2014.

6. Pleats

 

7.Leopard Prints
Ooh, for those who know me well, I am into animal prints and the thought of trending Leopard Prints in Fall kinda excites me again as I have been going more minimalistic and neutral in my outfit patterns ( mainly opting for more plain structured cut outfits in order to trend my statement Summer Necklaces).



So here are some easy to find Leopard items you could mix and match with to trend this look for Fall 2014. I did stay away from Leopard Print Dresses simply because this print is so loud in itself and best to be worn as an accessory or single item piece rather than as a whole outfit. Its such a fine line between establishing a classic look/trend or looking trashy if you know what I mean.


8. Knits
So, what is so different about wearing knits this Autumn/ Winter 2014 - 2015 as to previous years?
As most of us would do, we would often mix and match and pair our knits with Jeans, Midi skirts, Leather pants etc...This year, the trend is to be decked out in knits ( preferably) from Head to Toe.


Found these easy to wear knit items that you could put together to achieve the Top-to-Toe Knitwear trend for Fall/Winter.

9. Sock in Shoe
Decided to highlight a funkier trend one could play with this Fall 2014. Besides the athletic gear / sporty outfit looks, here's a cool one that would be quite fun to play around with.

Perfect for this in-between season and getting a longer wear out of your open toe heels and sandals.

Remember the main rules, either go bold and bright or neutral and classic / monochrome.



10. Stripes
Another popular style trend that is a classic, season after season. Try mix and matching various sizes of stripes in an outfit or work with stripes in various colours to refresh this style.

It was pouring cats and dogs last night! Even the Typhoon signal was up for quite a while. As it was still raining this morning, I decided to throw on a trench whilst doing school runs to keep dry.

How to Style A Denim Shirt : Chambray Shirt and Leopard Print

It's the weekend again everyone!

Was just going through my closet for a weekend outfit and realise I have a number of Denim shirts in various styles and fabrics. A Denim / Chambray Shirt is always a staple one should have in the closet anyways. It can easily be worn as a jacket, tied at the waist for a cool beach look, buttoned up and tucked in to a midi/ maxi skirt for that slight edge to an elegant outfit or simply worn over a pair of jeans. So many ways to style a chambray denim shirt.

Took these pictures some time back in Florida during one of our trips home, so you would notice my hair was much longer than ( boo hoo hoo.....) but I still love this simple combination.

My Favourite Fall Fashion Trends 2014 - Part 2

Hi everyone.

In this second instalment of " My Favourite Fall Fashion Trends 2014" I am going to highlight some of the clothing styles that resonated in most of the Fashion Weeks' Runway Shows. I have also put together a few styleboards of similar outfits styles you can find online that would be make trending these styles alot easier for you.

1. Prints
Go for optic prints this year, and be daring enough to mix and match different prints in an outfit.




2. 60s Silhouettes
Now, when haven't we stop loving Retro styles?




3. Drop Waist Dresses
The Drop Waist Dress has always been a favourite of mine. Fun, flirty and yet perfect for day or night outfits. Definitely a dress style I would be looking out for when out shopping.


I like these simple yet elegant drop waist style dresses which you can find in perhaps thicker Fall ready fabric, jacquard or woollen materials. Or you can easily pair these sloeeveless dresses with a beautiful long coat or scarf for the transition from Summer to Fall.


4. Assymetric Hems and Midi Skirts
The 2 more commonly seen Fall skirt styles to follow. Do try and match these skirts with other trending styles or colour trends to bring out your outfit.



5. Peplum
Ooh... Another favourite style of mine. Peplum! More often than not, we tend to look at Peplum styles for our tops, but try trending them with skirts as well.



My last and final instalment on "My Favourite Fall Trends 2014 - Part 3" that is coming up next, will highlight the remaining print and style trends of A/W 2014-2015 where some of them are my personal favourites.

Keep trending and stay tuned!

Love,
Simone
