The Boohoo.com Autumn Winter lookbook

I am quite bewildered at the volume of trends which have descended for Autumn Winter 2012. But thankfully, my friends over at boohoo.com are pretty good at giving us a guide to trends and what’s hot. I’ve been browsing the lookbook for a few weeks now and I am really taken with the collection which will be hitting the website over the coming months. When I shop at boohoo, I always go with a goal in mind- whether I am…

Alexa Chung fronts Vero Moda campaign

Alexa Chung fronts Vero Moda campaign

I have such a style crush on Alexa Chung even back as far as her days on T4. She never deviates from her style which I politely called nerdy chic (meant in the best possible way), with brogues, vintage style dresses and her elfin presence. She and Vero Moda have just announced that they are to team up again for Autumn Winter 2012 with a beautiful shoot (shot in London) taking inspiration from Jane Birkin. This influence is heavily visible in…

Biker jacket me loves.

Biker jacket me loves.

I love biker jackets and as I am currently researching a piece on coat trends for next season for my next feature in The Green, I am takng note of any particular style that catches my eye. One style to watch out for, as a nice alternative to a short jacket is the Warehouse long biker jacket. This style, shade and shape is really unusual and plays on what Warehouse do very very well – take a trend and make it…

Pepe Autumn Winter 2012

Pepe Autumn Winter 2012

I love being able to balance chic with casual. And I find, from a lot of experience, that I can only achieve this in cold weater (don’t ask me why!). I particularly like matching leather shorts and mini skirts, with chunky knits in rich luxe colours and pairing with some amazing, higher than high, ankle boots. Which is why I just love the collection for next season from Pepe. For both men and women it really emphasises that casual is…

Folli Follie, I want all of this!

Folli Follie, I want all of this!

I have said it once and I will say it again, I am a magpie. While doing my usual twitter stalking yesterday, I happened to note the new and very gorgeous new collection from Folli Follie, which is about to become available at Dublin department store, Arnotts (as well as being available in lot’s UK retailers). My bling loving eye gravitated towards their cuffs, a real statement piece which you will have forever. The cuff made of leather, has a…
