FASHION FILE: BROGUES

BORROWED FROM THE BOYS

You probably associate brogues with menswear and rightly so, but this season sees influencers and celebs sporting their brogues with feminine dresses, skirts and skinnies. Brogues in general are flat lace-ups with detail on the top. Scroll down to get some tips and ideas on how to pair this manly trend with outfits to take you through the winter months ahead.

I’ve paired my Green Cross brogues with H & M skinnies, a Country Road striped top and a Zara blazer

Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham wears her two tones with an all black ensemble for workwear chic!

Leather pants never seem to go out of fashion and paired with a soft sweater, denim jacket + brogues = yes please!

Alexa Chung’s oxblood brogues are fab aren’t they?

A long white shirt+ fitted blazer works well with skinnies + silver brogues = hot!

Love these shiny brouges worn with an all black ensemble elongates the silhouette, topped with a scarf and trend of the moment- tucked in hair

Long coat + brogues + denim = fab; the dash of red neckerchief balances the red detail in the jeans

A mid length jacket works proportionally well with rolled up pants; so chic and elegant with heel brogues

Platform brogues are the way to go worn with skinny blue denim and a kaftan- I’m still looking for a great pair that are comfortable. (I bought some from Zara last year but they gave me blisters and I haven’t been brave enough to wear them in!)

POLKA DOTS: FASHION TREND 2018

As seen on the Spring18 shows of Balenciaga, Dior, Carolina Hererra and more, the polka dot motif is back and on point! On the streets celebs and influencers are wearing this versatile trend in multiple ways from chiffon dresses with sock boots to ankle grazing skirts worn over jeans with sneakers. I’ve rounded up my favourite images from the Spring18 shows and streetwear style, plus a few Buy Now pieces!

SKIRTING THE ISSUE: This season’s must have denim

DENIM LOVE

I’m a jeans and Tee girl at heart, but I do like to incorporate a dress or skirt every now and then, pairing with stockings and boots during winter or come summer, I’ll wear sneakers or sandals for a lighter feel! I own a short light blue denim skirt and this midi above; it’s a great length to wear for a casual daywear with sneakers and a striped Tee! See how some celebs are wearing this summer’s ‘must-have’ skirt and below is a selection of denim skirts in store or online now:

Alexa Chung always manages to look stylish no matter what she wears – love the suede coat thrown over her short denim skirt

Emma Roberts teams a leather jacket with her button down denim skirt and burgundy velvet ankle boots = FAB!

FASHION: Bomber jackets

Cathi Trevor model, stylist and writer

THEY’RE THE BOMB!

Bomber jackets have been around for the last few years but even more so this season, with a variety of patterns, textures and colours to choose from. They are a great addition to any outfit; combine with jeans, pants, skirts or dresses and come summer the combination of shorts and sandals will look and feel oh so cool! I’ve been wanting to add another to my wardrobe so thought I’d share some of my favourite ones currently available online or instore:

THERE’S NO HIDING FROM THIS: Camo Jackets

Over the years I’ve always had at least one camouflage item in my cupboard and reckon it’s a trend that never seems to go out of fashion. The one I am wearing above I “borrowed” from my daughter who bought it from H&M while living in London and I’m hoping she doesn’t decide it actually looks better on her and nab it back!

I’ve rounded up a few shirts and jackets that are in store right now.
