New Year’s Eve (NYE), in my opinion, is the most exciting night in terms of styling and fashion. No outfit is too eccentric or over-the-top. Whether you’re staying home or heading to the most happening gig in town, you have … Continue reading
I say quintessential because everybody SHOULD have a perfectly-fitting, crisp white-collared shirt as a key piece in their closet. While I’m writing this, my pursuit for the perfect fit remains incomplete. The hurdles I’ve faced in my quest include the sleeve … Continue reading
I’m sure that a lot of you flinched at the title of the post as I know even the idea of revealing the midriff area for most women is unimaginable. But I assure you, the crop trend embodies much more … Continue reading
Pondering where to start this post because I have waited so long to share with you all the brand of the year for me; Dolce & Gabbana. Not a design-house that I have relied upon for inspiration in the passed, … Continue reading
They may not be the most convenient of trends, but there is something about a clutch that can take an outfit to a new realm of fashion.
As most trends, the clutch has become quirkier and more versatile over the years. In my recent experiences with clutches, you can find one in every architectural silhouette, colour, size and texture imaginable. Just when I think that the clutch trend has reached its pinnacle, big fashion houses call upon their whimsical masterminds to craft pieces that only they could conjure up. The clutch could owe its popularity to the very reason that there are no limits to the construction of clutches and hence are appropriate for most occasions and outfits.
The dilemma that this clutch movement has put me in, is that every time I go shopping or open a magazine, I see one that tops the clutches I already have. This means that before I knew it, I had a clutch collection which is swiftly developing (although unapologetically).
There is truly a clutch for every occasion and they do not discriminate whether you want to carry it as an accessory or carry your life in one. I have chosen my favourites from the Spring/Summer 2014 collections that have been launched over the passed month or so. With the array of designs and fashion houses, it was quite the task for me to choose out my favourites so this one is a big visual diary. Also, as always, remember that these pictures are for inspiration and they should be used to spark ideas about how to construct a look using a clutch! CLICK on the images for a description!
What started of as a post about the sheer trend, quickly turned into a rapturous analysis of the Burberry Prorsum 2014 Spring/Summer collection. So I decided to make it exactly that and save my sheer views for another day as I could not wait to share my Burberry excitement with you. This season, as most, Burberry has really hit the bull’s-eye with their choice of fabrics, embellishment and colour palette and you’ll know exactly what I mean when you flick through the visuals. Each garment in the line, is a work of great ingenuity and had me glued exploring it for hours. Use the colours, construction and styles as inspiration when putting together outfits this Spring/Summer. Pastels, florals, sheers and jewels are definitely going to be stand-out trends this season!
Inspired by these jewelled and beaded clutches by Marchesa. The regal- Indian backdrop really conjures ideas of outfits and style. Think elegant silk gowns in royal colours like maroon, blue and emerald green or even delicate gowns in pastel with … Continue reading
