The notion behind London’s remarkable Design Festival is to encourage the creativity of the city, engaging the greatest theorists, teachers, specialists and vendors in the country. It is however not only for practitioners of design. The event is a showcase for lovers of novelty, enthusiasts of enterprise and followers of flare. It is a melting pot of inspiration and initiative.
When we step out into such a lavish and elaborate area of ingenuity, we certainly want to look like we fit into the field of fabulousness. It isn’t that hard to do – all you need to do is follow a few basic guidelines fused with some seasonal trends. Here’s how:
A midi is the appropriate and trendy skirt / dress length of the season. The length plays a fine line of edgy and sexy versus feminine and demure. The midi is also ideal for a variety of occasions, crossing borders of both mood and personal style. If flexibility is your thing, so is this skirt length. Set the length of the skirt off with some dangling and dazzling arm accessories like the Pink ‘n White Delight or the Shimmering Star Bracelet.
Turtlenecks are the ideal garment to keep you toasty without packing on bulk. Knit beanies have also earned their place in the wardrobe this season. Don’t be afraid to wear this uber-cute headgear to the office or even a cocktail party. The quirkiness of the contrast to a tailored outfit promotes the chic look. To add the extra edge of elegance, add a jaw-dropping pair of earrings like the Radiant Hoop or the Precious Pendulum Earrings.
Shades of grey are so last season. Green is the new autumn it thing. Elegant emerald to khaki and avocado, there is a shade for everyone. Any item will do too – scarves, jackets, skirts or pants. Jaded jewellery is a fashion forward trend so take advantage with pieces like the Rhapsody in Green Ring or the Emerald Inspiration Pendant.
