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.

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.

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.

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.

Coming Soon...
