Fashion: The Trick To Tonal Dressing

by

If you follow fashion seasons, you will know tonal dressing aka monochrome has been lurking around for eternity. So, any thoughts on wearing multiple shades of the same hue at once? Many people think black and white when the word 'monochrome' is used, which is why I refer to it as tonal dressing. Tonal dressing may be considered a faux pas by others, but if you have a good eye for details, you can definitely see the 'cool and chic' in tonal dressing. Also, mixing patterns can look a bit 'out-there' and colour-blocking a bit noisy, especially bold colours. Nothing wrong with that but, wearing a single shade is a simpler, cleaner approach to putting an outfit together. There is definitely something sophisticated and effortless about it, not only when worn formally, but also casually too. I also think outcome can be just as striking as wearing a bold pattern or vivid ...

The Juice — Milan Fashion Week AW17

by

It's been a week since I got back from Milan Fashion Week, I feel like I'm almost fully recovered from exhaustion - you would think I did all 5 days in Milan with back to back shows, but that wasn't the case. But, I felt royally drained when I got back to London and threw myself straight back to work the next day. Surely, those who do all more than 1 city during Fashion Week are super humans. I mean, some even roll out blog posts during fashion week. HOW? If I don't do this post on time, I know the enthusiasm will poof and disappear, the story will be outdated and no one would be bothered to read--am I right--, after all, many people would have caught up on all the instant action via social media. Why Milan? A lot of other UK influencers flock to Paris after London Fashion Week and take a ...

Wardrobe Updates to Make for Autumn 2016

by

With autumn right around the corner, now is the perfect time to get your wardrobe ready for the new season. And while some trends are set to stick around well after summer’s last sunny day (we’re looking at you, off-the-shoulder necklines), there are others that will need to be tweaked — or, in some cases, replaced — once the mercury begins its descent. Easily update your closet to fit the fresh fall season with these chic swaps that are both functional and stylish. Add Layers to the Slip Dress The slip dress — available in a variety of lengths, materials, and colours — is, as Who What Wear puts it, the one dress you should buy in 2016. And while the slip dress worn solo was perfect for summer, to make the lingerie-inspired style more appropriate for autumn, simply add layers. Wear over a thin knit turtleneck or wear as an under-layer with ...
