Trend Alert: Coup d’etat

I’ve never been a huge fan of the colour khaki but lately, I can’t seem to get enough of it. I’ve recently bought a couple of things online and I’m waiting for them to arrive before I go khaki-crazy. Okay, not crazy, but at least a little more involved with the whole khaki-craze. We’re seeing a huge come back of military wear too, which goes perfectly with the colour. Just look at this Mango khaki military coat; it’s a dream right? Anyways, here’s a little ‘coup’ inspiration for you. Enjoy!

PS. I”ll take some photos of all the things I’ve recently bought when they arrive. I’ve been a naughty girl… whoops!

PPS. Have a great day!

Things That Make Me Go ‘Ooh’

It looks like Kurt is also getting involved in this season’s oversize trend. I can just picture how amazing these shoes would look worn with wide leg trousers and an oversize coat or, equally, with a silhouette dress. Such wedge perfection. I love the crisp, white look too!

Trend Alert – Oversize Me.

Most girls I know are pretty scared of sporting oversized items and I don’t exactly find this shocking. So I’m pretty sure that like me you’re feeling a little thankfully for the rise of the oversize this fall.

If I had to chose three words that best illustrated what ‘oversized fashion’ is all about, I’d chose big, bold and bossy. To help maintain that trendy look this fall, I really do suggest that this is the one trend you don’t ignore! For one, it’s really comfortable, looks fierce and, bonus,it’ll keep you warm.We’re not just talking about clothes here to; ‘oversize’ is taking over scarfs, jewellry and bags too.

Choosing the right items to pair your oversize garments will help accentuate your look. A word of advice; always think opposite. Oversize trousers & fitted top. Oversized top & either a pencil skirt or tailored trousers (ankle trousers too!). You get the idea. Remember, what you want to do is compliment the other section. Now go on, try something new today.
