Fall Must-Haves (Not Too Late)

fall must have items1. Black heel boots: EVERY WOMAN LOVES A PAIR OF BLACK BOOTS. There I said it. To be honest, black booties are not a fall-only thing. In fact, it is a fashion necessity, so to speak. It can be worn at any season of the year, for as long as you’ve got your imagination wander as regards your fashion style. Just remember one thing: If you already have some pairs of boots in your closet, then give it away — it’s time for some upgrade. If not, then keep it — the more, the merrier.

2. J Crew statement jewelry: As they say, it’s all about the statements baby. Guess what? Jewelry are a good to make a statement or emphasize one. Sport a simple look. Add some jewelry. Boom! You’ve got it right. You’ve just made a statement. The more kinds of jewelry, the more statements you can make. Therefore, have some varied jewelry ready for your everyday look.

3. Elie Saab print blouse: Why have some printed blouses on fall? Simple, it’s crisp and clean and speaks a lot of fun. What’s amazing with this Elie Saab printed blouse is that it can act as a layering piece or you can wear it as is. So, for fall, you can wear it as is. On winter, you can add a tank underneath it or add a sweater above it. See? It’s a win-win situation. You won’t have regrets.

4. Balmain pleated faux leather skirt: Play with some leather. Unlike ages ago, leather has since upgraded and it has done some good on women’s fashion life. This Balmain faux leather skirt is great for work or a night out. Here’s the trick: pair it with tights on work and remove the tights afterwards on your way to a girls’ night out. Sounds good, yes?

5. Whistles pink coat fun fur: Add some style to your coat. Make it furry. Nothing says glamour quite like fur. Let them know how fashionable you could be anytime of the year.

There you have it: five must-haves for the fall (that can be used in all other seasons of the year).

The House of Holland features a denim jacket that best fits casual days at work, usually on Fridays and on weekends. Although denim jackets can also be paired with almost any outfit, it is best that you pair this particular one with something that matches any of the colors in its ornament.

Topshop Spring/Summer 2014: Kiss Me Margate

Topshop has recently launched their spring/summer 2014 collection. The collection is divided into two: Skate Away and Kiss Me Margate.

RO_April_Kiss Me Margate4

For their Kiss Me margate collection:

A celebration of seaside days gone by, of endless summers & quirky picture postcards, a mood epitomized by Tracey Emin’s infamous artwork “For a dirty weekend come to Margate”. A true girly story, offset with a beatnik/tomboy undertone. Kitsch 50’s seaside cafe prints, accompanied by laundry bag checks & deckchair stripes, presented on heavier bases of linens, hessians & canvas’s. Silhouettes make a nod to the sixties with A-Line shift dresses, cropped blouses & the modern ‘ankle grazer’.RO_April_Kiss Me Margate3

Clean denim jackets & high waisted jeans worn with a knotted gingham shirt; cater for that more androgynous look. Co-ord dressing is still key for the season, pretty embellished knits teamed with high-waisted pencil skirts, conversational sweats worn with matching shorts. One colour dressing is also strong & is a key look to this trend: a full 50’s flippy, with a button- through blouse. Textures, textures, textures! (Across all departments) Checks printed onto cotton piques, hessian deckchair stripes, compact 3D knits & heavy, coloured vinyls.

RO_April_Kiss Me Margate2

It’s no wonder Topshop is so popular with ladies — it offer a wide range of designs that will have you wanting for more. There’s so much to love about Topshop!

Uggggh! I can’t wait to get hold of some items from their two collections. It’s just something a lady should have for the season.

Any plans of going shopping yet?

Topshop Spring/Summer 2014: Skate Away

Warning: This post is divided into two parts: Skate Away and Kiss Me Margate. This is to avoid confusion to the trends and designs by each collection.

Topshop has recently launched their spring/summer 2014 collection. The collection is divided into two: Skate Away and Kiss Me Margate.RO_April_Skate Away2

Let’s have a sneak peek first at Skate Away. According to their public release, and I quote:

This skate inspired story provides a fresh antidote to all the Hi-tech sports stories from previous seasons, to create a casual look that is in-line with next summers boyish slouch aesthetic.

From the 70’s West coast of California, to Londons urban skateparks in the 90’s, this exciting subculture has given us casual staples that has continuously evolved into modern day sweats, joggers and boyfriend pants. From the moment Phoebe Philo decreed that Vans Skate shoes were the new seasons Nike Airmax, producing ponyskin and python-topped versions for Celine, – a move that was swiftly covered by printed versions from Stella and Kenzo, we see the obsession with Skate inspired styling infiltrating designer wardrobes, and hi-lights the love of this sub-culture, to make it cool again…. Whilst constantly borrowing from its world, of over-sized hoodies, sweats, and beanies, we see the references here paralleled in the 70’s film, Dogtown, to Erdems over-long flood length slouch pants. Where we see Suzie wearing ‘Fatboy’ Extra-Large skate-shorts, the pre-collections have thrown up Culotte type versions from See by Chloe to Tibi.

The look gets a luxed-up feel with fine-gauge cashmere knits, culotte-type playsuits and new-casual shirt dresses, but always worn back with Old-School inspired trainers or slides. Floral Printed 90’s type Hawaian shirts co-ord with the cropped wide pant, (see Mother of Pearl), and the new boyfriend Tee-Shirt becomes neater and more feminised. The jogger looses its cuff to become flood length. Print direction uses bold Stripes and are mixed with large scale palm-like modern florals, and are placed on sweat-sleeves to create a Trompe-L’oiel play of the Tee-shirt over sweat combo.

Jeans and Western jackets are worn slouchy, along with fuller length playsuits. Striped- topped socks complete the look.The Skate Away collection is perfect if you’re planning to shop for rich outfits to fill your wardrobe for the spring/summer season.RO_April_Skate Away

I definitely would love to have some Skate Away pieces. Even thinking of heading to their store tomorrow and grab a few rich outfits for my summer collection.
