Trend Alert: Scarlet Woman

By Olivia Watkins

See red this autumn – the colour of passion, lust and rage (wowza) is now the colour of the season.

Trend Alert: Vanity Fair

With a selective nod to SS14’s primmest, prettiest looks, Vanity Fair takes cues from high society’s finest to deliver a chic, floral infused edit. Cut in soft feminine shapes and painted in saccharine shades, look to ladylike separates, candied pastels and garden variety graphics for this upper-crust get-up. But it’s not all super serious sophistication; add a little fun to the prim parade with conversational prints and unexpected fabrics…

We’ve taken some of our favourite pieces from the Vanity Fair lookbook and styled four gorgeous outfits to see you from spring soiree to high tea!

Sundae girl

In a palette good enough to eat, this ice cream coloured collection gives the ol’ pencil skirt and smart shirt combo a sweet shakeup. A stylish evening look, pair this statement set with a blazer and switch your clutch for a grown up tote for work-worthy in a flash.

Style Crush: Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Welcome to our new feature, where we’ll be looking back at our favourite style crushes in TV and Film. To start us off we’ve got the ultimate Hollywood style icon, Audrey Hepburn in one of our favourite old time movies Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Here Audrey Hepburn portrays the beautiful socialite Holly Golightly and struts some wonderful fashion along the way. Here are our favourite style moments from the film.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Audrey without the statement black dress. This iconic look is timeless and looks oh-so chic. Dress yours with tights and chunky jewellery to update the look. This bandage style bodycon dress is so versatile – dress it up or down for any party occasion.

We love her statement coat, perfect for gallivanting around New York City or wherever you happen to be! It’s also perfect for injecting some bright colour into the dull winter days and this bright orange coat is a hot trend, which is selling fast!

Now it wouldn’t be complete without the accessories and make-up of course! And Holly Golightly certainly knows a thing or two about accessorising as these iconic images show…

Get the look with these fab pieces:

  

Her make up is impeccable and we love her long dark lashes teamed with soft pink lips. This look is so demure yet sexy at the same time. For a special night out we love trying our hand at false lashes and these layered lashes can instantly give you that wow factor. Add a slick of eyeliner to complete the look.

 

Over the summer we have covered our nails in bold and bright colours and as much as we love it, this style considers a more subtle look. This Butter London nail varnish in Teddy Girl is just the thing for that chic, just manicured look – nude/pinky tone nails are going to be big next Spring Summer so take note now, team with this Dainty Doll lipstick aptly named Material World.
