Women's Fashion Trend - Leopard Print Coats

Classy not Brassy!
Leopard print is always in fashion whether it’s a item of clothing or an accessory and personally I wear the odd bit of leopard print all year round, but at the moment the must have leopard print trend is in the form of a vintage coat.

The new collections in our favourite stores on the high street heavily feature the leopard print coat and it seems to be pretty popular with our favourite celebrities such as Alexa Chung, Kate Moss, Mary-Kate Olsen. See pictures above for just how big this has taken off with the fashionista’s.

Leopard Print is a love it or hate it trend an understandably you might hear the words ‘leopard print’ and automatically think ‘Bet Lynch’ but this is so not the case! After reading this I’ll having you thinking more along the lines of classy not brassy!

Leopard prints are no longer considered trashy, as proved by our celebrity fashionistas, and the print coats are a perfect and chic way to keep warm through winter. However, like most trends there’s a trick to pulling off the leopard print coat trend so listen up…

Shorter girls should go for cropped coats or thigh length versions while taller girls can go all out in a maxi length coat if they wish!

As leopard print is such a bold trend I would stay clear of wearing it at the same time as any of the other major detailing trends i.e. lace, sequins etc. Now this would be brassy!

Remember to keep it simple and wear with jeans or leggings in the day, but go wild on a night out and wear it with your favourite LBD. Try accessorising yours with a red or black belt to add instant glamour, show off your waist and give it a better shape.

Killer Party Heels

So a sexy heel is the only shoe you’ll be needing over the party season… and when I say heel I mean a proper heel… The higher the better for this upcoming party season so not a kitten in sight please!
You may have seen the new Alexander McQueen crazy 10 inch heels on the catwalks recently, but I’m not actually expecting you to purchase and strut your stuff in these. I do love killer heels but these actually might kill you!
Take the lead from the heel queen herself, Victoria Beckham, and invest in a pair of killer heels that will take you through to the New Year, although by New Years Day you’ll probably want to wear slippers rather than sky scraper heels!
You can literally wear your heels with any outfit you want from dresses and leggings to playsuits and sequin knickers, just remember one thing… the sky is the limit! You can even inject some colour and brighten up a plain block dress with some vibrant heels like Beyonce and Mary Kate below.

Now I know Victoria Beckham lives in heels and even wears her Christian Louboutin’s to a Lakers game, which personally is a bit much for me, but you don’t have to just wear your heels on a night out… dress down heels with a pair of skinny jeans like Victoria, Audrina Patridge, Blake Lively and Nicole Richie… you’ll look laid back but chic.
So seen as its Christmas you have no excuse not to treat yourself and I personally recommend to go to some stores at StarPlaza sich as VOILE and RIO. The Voile Holiday boutique collection is a lush combination of studs, straps, and ridiculously high platforms and are definitely lush and the Bisou (for example) collection consists of colour, platforms and sequins for perfect party feet!

I'll show you here in this posts, some fabulous shoes which you can't miss them on this season of the year!
Happy Christmas and enjoy!

Car Park Catwalk… Vivienne Westwood

Monday night saw Selfridges underground car park host the exclusive SS2010 Anglomania Collection by Vivienne Westwood. An unlikely venue for a catwalk show you might think, but one that went well with Westwood's infamous contemporary drapes & casual layering tones.

Dame Vivienne is without a doubt one of Britain’s finest originators for celebrating individuality through fashion. Her collection consisted of ruffles, stripes and tribal prints to die for, reeking style & statement femininity. She manages to effortlessly combine glamour with a touch of everyday quirkiness, teaming a burgundy ball gown with a military cap!

The show attracted the presence from press, buyers & celebrities alike. Tracey Emin, Sadie frost, Florence Welch (Florence & the Machine) Little Boots & Nicola Roberts (Girls aloud – now a regular at Westwood’s shows) all joined in the exclusive preview of the collection. See the image below for just a selection of celebrities that attended the event. If you want some A-List style in your life, then you cannot go wrong with an item from Vivienne Westwood – the fashionista’s choice!
Daisy Lowe strutted her stuff as one of the stars of the show, her touch of quirkiness?… a face full of sparkling rhinestones! The night was also graced with a performance from 13 year old Dionne Bromfield, the talented god-daughter of Amy Winehouse, who donned a printed prom dress from the SS selection.

Women Fashion Blog has definitely got a lust for the collection, as I’m sure you will too! Luckily the wait is not so long… The collection will be available in Selfridges and online at premium retailers from late December.

Women’s Party Fashion Trend – Velvet

Recently I have seen a lot more velvet clothing available within the latest women’s collections. It is going to be a key trend this winter, especially in the whole party season scene. The men are getting right into this trend at the moment, with everything from Blazers, to linings and footwear featuring this luxurious fabric. The women are never left behind though, so we are seeing some beautiful dresses, jackets, footwear and accessories released just in time for your big night.

Velvet is just an amazing fabric, it exudes extravagance and class, which is just what you need for a formal event or the office party. It can be show stopping especially if you pick a statement piece like a velvet dress or play suit for an edgier twist. The fabric becomes a true focal point to your outfit, and it means that you can then tone down the rest using killer black heels, and clutch purse for a look that is pure chic, but totally sexy at the same time.
If you are not confident enough to pick out full velvet clothing, you can get some amazing mixed velvet items that are teamed with more subtle fabrics as well as clothing that just has velvet detailing or lining. A perfect way to get in on the trend without being over the top. The other great benefit to velvet is that is adds amazing texture to any outfit. It will definitely make you stand out in comparison to all the other LBD’s and with feathers, faux fur, studs and other detailing being the major trends this year, we can see that it is all about texture in order to create great outfits.

So take a look below at some of the best velvet items I have found this season.

Top 6 Women’s Winter Boots

These Boots Are Made For Walking
Boots are always a hot trend for winter and the perfect way for us to make a fashion statement and survive the cold!
Lets face it if we didn’t have our boots on our feet wouldn’t survive! Boots are big! Not only do they look great but they also allow us to change our look and update our wardrobe instantly. Add a pair of winter boots and tights to pretty summer dress for an instant update… perfect! Whether you want to be stylish and sophisticated or sexy and serious or just casual and comfy, your winter boots will help you do it.

When it comes to winter boots there are literally hundreds of styles available, from stylish shoes boots to sophisticated over the knee boots, from leather to sheepskin, from laces to zips, but whatever your style you are sure to find a winter boot to suit!
If you want to look like you’ve walked straight off the catwalk wear an over the knee boot, these are all over the catwalks at the moment like Vivienne Westwood and Prada:

Apart from the over the knee boots the other trends to look out for are shoe boots, ankle boots, lace up boots and buckled, belted and studded boots (these have become a trend of there own!) And of course the beloved UGG boot, although every season a prediction is made that the UGG will be ditched, it is still here and as popular as ever before.
All styles can be worn flat or heeled (except the UGG of course!) And all styles can be worn with a dress, leggings, jeans or skirts so whatever your style the winter boot will be sure to add an edge to your look.
To start you off I have picked out my top 6 boots.

As you can see, there are lots of stylish boots in RIO. RIO and Bisou are my favourite stores to buy original and fashionable shoes!
We are now so close from winter... So why don't we go buy some winter boots to be always fashionable at Stardoll? Be the first one!

Party Season Accessory – Chain Bags

With the party season upon us, I continue my guide to the party season with a great accessory that will really set your outfit off… the chain strap bag. These sexy new styles have just made an amazing impact within all of our lives here at Women Fashion Blog and I think they have a real ‘edge’ compared to the standard bags on the market right now.
As we know, the glam rock look is massive right now and the chain bag will really set off any casual or nighttime outfit which makes use of true rocker pieces like leather jackets, black leggings, graphic tees and the like. However it can also be dressed up beautifully this party season when matched with a great LBD or party dress and killer heels.
There are loads of styles available which are right on trend from sleek and chic, to sequined or leather… but whichever style you pick you can be sure to finish off your party outfit in style. Many celebrities have been seen rocking the look recently and it is fast becoming THE party season accessory of the year. So if you want something different and a way to stand out whilst still looking great, look no further.

Trend Collection – Bold Shoulder

With the 80’s trend being absolutely massive right now in women’s fashion, the bold shoulder has made a dramatic return on the catwalk previews and in the world of celebrities. When I say bold shoulder, I mean exaggerated definition of the shoulder area like they had back in the day with shoulder pads. Now no-one is saying we should all be reaching for the foam right now, as this season’s hottest trend is made simple with the beautiful collection of shoulder detailed pieces available for us all to buy.
Today’s bold shoulder trend concentrates on bringing it bang up to date – and in some cases going futuristic with it. The shoulders on the latest collections are structured and are all about creating drama with delicate detailing and cuts. As you can see above, this trend has taken off massively with everyone from Diane Kruger to Kim Kardashian to Miley Cyrus rocking the trend in their own individual way.

The key piece in this party season would be the structured shoulders dress. If you are looking for a new LBD then you would not go wrong getting your hands on one of these, as it will be bang on trend whilst making a massive statement. It can’t fail to have people looking at you and admiring your style. Don’t think it ends there though, as there are blazers, tunics and tops which all make use of this trend and can be worked into your wardrobe easily.

Hot Colour Combo – Black and Gold

A new colour combination is really making waves in women’s fashion at this moment, and today I'm going to show you some of the key items that you can use to nail this latest trend. Black and Gold has always been a great colour contrast that I have used each and every season for parties, nights out and formal affairs. However with metallics being this season’s must-have and gold embellishment being top of the list, I have seen many more pieces that mix the 2 colours together so it takes the all the hard work away from you!

From sequins to studs, this combination has been seen on celebrities and catwalks alike this season (see main picture). I can see why it has taken off so much because LBD’s are the key piece for party seasons and black in itself is a slimming colour which always has you looking your very sexiest. Match black with gold and you have the most amazing colour contrast possible in order to stand out from the crowd. Gold also adds a little bit of glitz and glamour to any outfit and is completely timeless, so you know you can pull out the same items next season/year as well.

To really ram home that this is the biggest party season colour combination take a look at EVEN MORE celebrities that have been spotted in this combination recently:

Sparkle This Party Season!

All I want for Christmas is….. Sparkle!
Glossy Hair? Check.
Flawless make up? Check.
Head turning party outfit? Check.

Here at Women Fashion Blog I have been working hard to deliver your Christmas wardrobe in time for the party season.
Sequins made an early appearance this year and have been around since summer but as Christmas is getting closer be prepared to see a whole lot more. The trend for this party season has an 80s vibe with a festive sprinkling of sequins, glossy satins, luxurious lace, high-sheen silks and sexy velvets. Not all together though… Obviously!
The key to wearing this trend is to keep everything to a minimum, so if you’re wearing head to toe sequins, avoid detailed accessories and fancy silhouettes, as they will add an over-the-top drama to your outfit. The point of wearing these glamorous fabrics like satin, silk and velvet is to look sophisticated, chic and sexy – not trashy.

If you don’t have the budget to splash out on a new party piece try adding a wow clutch for instant glamour and sophistication or statement accessories to your LBD. Chunky statement necklaces and embellished bid collars add just the right amount of sparkle and Christmas cheer. Note no earrings needed!
The party season trends can be seen at Balmain, Gucci and Christopher Kane so when you hit the stores looking for that perfect party outfit take inspiration from the designer gods and remember
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without glitter.

Fur & Feathers Fashion Trend

Fur & Feathers: Where the Wild Things Are!

OK so the winter is on its way and its cold and we all know when it’s cold we don’t feel like showing off our little black dresses but that doesn’t mean we can’t still be stylish and trendy!
This winter fur is on track again and it is more popular than ever before. Not only does fur look chic and fashionable, it is also warm! Great News!
Add fur or feathers to any outfit and make a Queen out of any woman. However, you don’t need to dress head to toe in them to be down with the trend!

If you don’t feel like wearing a completely fur coat you could think of buying a coat with a fur collar or adding a fur accessory to an outfit to finish it off. You’ll be able to find all sorts of accessories trimmed with fur this season from hats and gloves to boots and bags.
And what about feathers? Wearing too much can run the risk of making us look like a swan, so feather details are best for this one. Think feather edges on dresses and skirts to create an elegant look. A feathered accessory or jewellery is a fantastic way to invest in this trend.You don’t have to spend a fortune on genuine fur and feathers but remember that nothing looks worse than a cheaply made fur garment (whether genuine or faux), so invest accordingly and go ahead and have fun with the rest of the flock!

Coming Soon: Get great looks with fur and feather!

New Season Women's Cardigans

Today I thought I would put together a collection of the best cardigans for the new season from around the Internet. As all of us girl’s know, the cardigan and knitwear in general is crucial for the new cold seasons for us to look great and also keep warm! Cardigans are amazingly versatile and provide great layering options in any situation each Autumn/Winter. With the weather officially sucking right now, there has never been a better time to get your hands on a great new cardigan.

I have seen so many great varieties available for the new season with everything from slouchy, belted, boyfriend, over sized and drape cardigans all coming in so many cuts, styles and colours. It has never been a better time for women’s knitwear and here at Women Fashion Blog I am loving the over sized boyfriend cardigans a LOT as well as the big thick chunky versions which are nearly an outfit in itself. Team with some leggings and belt the cardigan across the middle to give you a super sexy and effortless look that emphasises all the right places.

To style the cardigan in other ways you need to think about the look you are going for. It is such a versatile piece of clothing and really is a fashion essential for any woman. The cardigan can act in place of a jacket or coat, if you oversize it slightly and really go to town on the layering beneath it. For a more casual look, wear it over a graphic t-shirt or vest and rock the skinny jeans underneath. You could even bring some chic to the basic cardigan by wearing it over a shirt/blouse with some dark trousers or a pencil skirt. Power dressing is really in right now and the pencil skirt mixed with a beautiful piece of knitwear will really hit this look on the head without being to “stuffy”.

So check out some of the greatest new cardigans I have found from the high street and premium designers below.

Hot Fashion Colous Combination - Blue and Black

This year’s hottest colour combination is red and black – as I featured last week about Vera Wang dress. Another has burst onto the scene recently which I absolutely love, again pairing black with a bold statement colour… Blue. This was actually a massive trend through this year’s Spring/Summer seasons and it has stayed strong throughout all the early Autumn/Winter releases.

Many celebrities have been seen rocking the trend with Lauren Conrad leading the way in an amazing colour blocking panel dress mixing with a dark edgy leather jacket. Perfectly executed and right on trend, this combination of colours is such a hit – and the leather jacket is this season’s must have item. I love how she adds a really bold splash of colour and then tones down the rest of the outfit in black to make it really stand out and become a focal point. So mix a bright blue with black jacket and accessories to really stand out from the crowd.

Be brave when picking your shades of blue and don’t be afraid to go really bold as you can control it with good use of black pieces surrounding it. I particularly like Cobalt blue and think it looks really refreshing this season.

So take a look at some of the great new pieces that you can mix with standard black pieces or those that combine the colours to do all the work for you!

COMING SOON - Get some Blue and Black outfits to look always stunning!

Steal Her Style - Kylie Minogue

With her sister Dannii very much in the public eye at the moment due to X-Factor – and looking amazing I must say – I thought I would show some love to the older sister who hasn’t been around so much recently. Kylie is definitely one of our favourite style icons and celebrities as a whole, especially with how she dealt with cancer (and beat it!) and how classy she was throughout her whole break up with Olivier Martin a few years back.

She is no slouch in the fashion stakes either as you can see from the images above. Today I have 2 outfits which are inspired by Lipsy’s new collections and they both are totally different but totally amazing! The first is a glam night time look which is so simple but really effective. The dress totally makes this look work on it’s own as it is such a statement. Bold colours and a great mix in palette really takes this colour blocking to a new level. I also LOVE the asymmetric detailing which is a really big trend right now and will continue right the way through Autumn/Winter.

Of course you can dress this outfit up with the right accessories… I would keep the shoes and clutch purse really simple with black statement items and then add some great sparkling jewellery in order to give off that “star” vibe.
The second outfit is a really good example of power dressing mixed with the rock glam trend. A great pencil skirt mixed with a simple top looks very chic but also very formal/work like. I brighten this whole look up with a bright scarf and add an “edge” with a great leather jacket. Add the large bag in order to give the outfit more of a relaxed vibe and pair with simple black sandals.

Get Kylie Minogue style in StarPlaza:

You can be always trendy and fashionable like Kylie Minogue. In StarPlaza, you have a full collection of beautiful bags in baby phat, you have an unique collection of dresses and shoes in Bisou and very original scarfs in Miss Sixty!

Here are the prices:

Women's Fashion Trend - Checks and Plaid

I mentioned a few weeks ago that check shirts are going to be a BIG deal this Autumn/Winter and now it seems with each new collection that comes out I'm seeing more and more check and plaid patterns within all clothing pieces. I have seen checked dresses, skirts, tees and jackets over the last few weeks and can now confirm it has turned into a full blown trend!

I absolutely LOVE the whole cowboy check theme here at Women Fashion Blog and know that the boys are going through the exact same trend as well this Autumn/Winter. Matching check shirts anyone?! I am particularly in love with the check skirts available and think they would look amazing with a simple vest top and cowboy boots during the day. You could even dress them up with statement heels and a sexy top for a killer night time look – if you have got it, then flaunt it!

So check out the latest collections below which feature bags, dresses, skirts and jackets all in this season’s hottest pattern!
