Alexa Chung resort collection

Personally I love adding a pop of colour to a look, and Alexa Chung gives food for thought on this idea in her new Resort Collection. Alexa gives us strappy checked dresses, a gorgeous layered tulle skirt and mixed prints, but the standout trend of the collection? The splashes of red in the footwear (and this emoji inspired dress )! Now, all those of us that follow fashion probably had an inkling that red boots were here to stay throughout SS18, but with it cropping up in resort collections, I’d imagine we can now expect to see them following through into AW19 as well!

MFW Milan: Smoking Jackets with a Twist

Men’s fashion week has recently begun and as I trawled through the photos from various shows so far I noticed that outerwear for men was making a huge statement- from big bold prints to oversized bomber jackets.

One big trend came from Etro; with the whole collection boasting lots of Japanese influences that included Obi belts wrapped around suit jackets and waistcoats. Not only this but the Italian fashion house also gave us a belted robe, almost similar to the traditional smoking jacket, but with a Navajo style print in luxuriously thick material. If this newer combination isn’t quite your style then those of us with a more classic style can refer to D&G, who also failed to disappoint, offering a silky, embroidered version that gave us matching suit style trousers!

The British Fashion Awards: Kate Moss

Okay, so I know Kate Moss is one of biggest fashion icons in the world, but I really did not like what she wore to The British Fashion Awards!! It may be Alexander McQueen and she may be a massive fashion icon, but I just don’t think it suited her at all (although I did LOVE the coat). Some would argue she can wear whatever she wants, she is THE Kate Moss after all, but a leather mini dress? Really?

But I did manage to find an alternative look for Kate, and the unlikely style inspiration of what I think would look better on Kate comes from Donatella Versace, who was also at the event. This isn’t to say that Donatella looked better than Kate ( she actually looked quite tacky, as usual) but that if Kate wore that dress instead she would have looked so much better! What do you think?

(And seeing as we’re swapping dresses, I’d like to point out that I think Kate’s whole outfit would have looked a lot nicer on Sienna Miller, who wore an emerald green gown for the event)
