StyleWise: FESTIVAL DE CANNES

As we know with every film awards ceremony and high profile film festivals comes the winning outfit. And this year Rachel McAdams brought it to the table. If this is an effort to increase strength in your career and public profile, well done girl, you’ve got it right.

The red lace ensemble is my favourite of course!

StyleWise: H! by Henry Holland SS11

These are a few images from the Spring/Summer Look Book of Henry Holland’s new range H! It is described as playful, fun and flirty; but with all that Lace and floral I feel liked I have stepped back into 2010. Maybe he is just trying to take his designs to a wider audience, which is great for him. But apart from a few pieces it looks like I walked in to the Divided section of H&M.

All i’m saying is the price point better reflect the uniqueness (or in this case the lack of) of the collection.

StyleWise: Rucksacks are now stylish… Hooray!

It is proven the Rucksack is an essential fashion must have. Apart from embodying the nomadic hiking and festival trends seen this season, they leave your hands free to tuck in your pocket throughout the winter! For those on-trend Fashionistas out there, we haven’t got the Eastpak or ‘Just Do it’ Nike types in mind. Instead picture soft shearling, sturdy leather, chic nylon and even luxurious velvet. The rucksack is great combined with slim fit chinos, stiletto hiking boots, plaid shirts and leather jackets.


 

Mary-Kate Olsen incorporating the rucksack to her look. An absolute StyleWise Outfit!

StyleWise: Has Shearling been Overdosed?

Ever since the preview of Burberry’s AW collection the high street,  press have prescribed the nation with intoxicating amounts of sheepskin, from purses to outwear to shoes. Shearling is latest trend that will not be bypassed by anyone. Even those doing their weekly grocery shop at Tesco will encounter their shearling lace-up wedge boots. And at only £20 a pop Tesco will be cashing in on fashion ‘Cash Sheep.’

Shearling is a trend I incorporated into my wardrobe within the last two years. Firstly with a Black shearling aviator jacket from H&M, now in one of my four charity giveaway bags as I got my value for money at only £29.99. The other being a pair of Dr Marten Serena boots, which adore so much so that they are on my feet at this moment in time. Nonetheless I have this disturbing premonition that the high street is massacring shearling the same way the farmers skinned the sheep… in the masses and with care!

I thought heavy duty shearling jackets would still be a vintage favourite that can be purchased only from the most sought after ‘second time around’ boutiques. But the arrow on the trend cycle informed us it was now time for shearling to be at the forefront this autumn/ winter. The popularity in vintage and worn looks made it inevitable that this convenient vintage style will be the cash cow the high street will be shearing throughout the big chill.

With peace and joy,

Chezelli…
