Stuck Between Summer & Autumn

Outfits Style October 23, 2016 10 Comments

  &amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br /> I love autum, the cold nights, layering outfits and the fact that it is completely acceptable to wear all black outfits. However, there’s something about summery colours that I just can’t let go of. But who says we have to choose? play around with colours and layering like I’ve done here.

Some days I am in the mood to go full glam but other days, all I want to do is throw on a hoodie and be comfortable, but comfort does not have to mean sacrificing your style. Everyone has that favourite hoodie in their wardrobe, making an appearance after a long day or during lazy winter days. Hoodies should not be cast away as something that only makes an appearance when we’re binge watching something on Netflix but it could be something that you can wear any day, any time, no matter if it’s summer, spring or winter outside. I recently embraced wearing a hoodie and dressing down a lot more so I decided to put together some casual style tips to try an elevate an outfit on any lazy day.

The Block Heel

Outfits Style August 17, 2016 2 Comments
The block-heel has been the shoe of the moment for a long time now and its popularity does not appear to be faltering anytime soon. At 5’5, I am grateful for the extra inches that heels give me but as someone who wears heels all the time, I am thanking my lucky stars that sensible shoes are dominating the fashion world right now. From sneakers to block heels, the styles are just as practical as they are stylish. I am currently obsessed with the block heeled sandals, they are so refreshingly comfortable, versatile and perfect for summer. They work with a pair of frayed hem jeans or a summery shift dress (as I have styled it above) and they even work for office looks.

When Art Meets Fashion: Dior & Rene Gruau

Art Culture Style June 21, 2016 1 Comments

Fashion, in its purest form, is wearable art

 
The collaboration between art and fashion is not a new phenomenon. Over the last century artists; many designers have drawn inspiration from artists and art movements to create collections that made art more widely available to the masses. This connection is sometimes missed but the connection between art and fashion is something not to be ignored. Fashion, as Poiret considered it, is a form of artistic expression and over time, artists and art movements have proved to be a prevalent source of inspiration for designers. The relationship between art and fashion has overlapped and intermingled since the first half of the 20th century and it appears to be intensifying. Artists use paintings and artwork as reflections of cultural and economic changes, in the same way designers use clothing styles to do the same. Furthermore, artists and art movements as a source of inspiration has been a constant feature in the fashion industry, dating back to Elsa Schiaparelli and her collaboration with Salvador Dali, the Piet Mondrian inspired YSL collection and even brands such as Prada using street art as a source of inspiration for their SS14 collection.
