A lot of women will not be able to follow every fashion trend in a particular season however finding at least one prominent piece that dates the time can help to keep them in the loop. A simple accessory or a piece of outer-wear is a prime example.
This Fashion Year Consider:
Draw from Eastern culture with the Obi belt. The Obi has been a prominent part of the spring/summer 2011 UK fashion scene. Gucci, Paul and Joe, Louis Vuitton, Haider Ackermann, Marc Jacobs and Carolina Herrera are just some of the designers that have added to the wide collection of belts available. From graphic to simple; or slender one to those that take up the entire midsection, there is a design for each outfit.
Whether the look is sultry, retro or chic, chokers are a perfect way to complement it. This may be why they are about to become fashion favourites. Recent catwalk presentations have positioned them as the 2011 autumn/winter premier accessory.
It seems Haute Couture will not be complete this year without the ‘evil eye’ talisman. The piece was featured at the catwalk in Paris during Haute Couture Week earlier this year and has found favour with the likes of Diane von Furstenberg and Naomi Campbell.
This is the summer for dresses and skirts but for those who want to add a touch of ‘toughness’, jackets are the item of choice. Biker jackets are extremely popular, so are boxed type jackets that carry a masculine feel. Thanks to Andro-Glamour; masculine cut jackets will also dominate autumn as women move on to the next look, dressing like the guys do.
