Faux fur for the ultimate in every day glamour

Just one plush garment can shield you from the elements and make you look luxuriously snug (and smug) – faux fur.

From teddy bear coats to subtle fluffy trims, there’s a Winter wonder to suit everyone’s furry fashion limit. Why not be faux fur fabulous with all this cold weather around?

Full pelt

A thick, faux fur coat has Winter written all over it. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, it’s a sound overcoat investment for the big freeze months, from November through to March.

Colour is all-important when selecting your faux fur. If you have a Warm skin tone go for the browns, fawns and camels, should you have a Cool skin tone choose grey or black fur.

There are also lots of animal print furs which are the ultimate statement if you have a Dramatic or Creative style personality. Leopard used to be the go-to print, but now you’ll find Friesian cow or Dalmatian spots, if you prefer a quirky monochrome colour way.

Furry trims

Faux fur can be used as a glamorous accent on clothes, almost like tinsel on a Christmas tree, but minus sparkle.

You can pretty much forgo a scarf if you opt for a winter coat with a generous faux fur or shearling collar. The bigger the collar, the bigger the style statement.

Avoid a furry collar if you’re bigger busted, as it’s likely to exaggerate your proportions but, conversely, if you’re lacking in that area, it can boost your assets.

Generous faux fur trims on hemlines are the latest way to draw attention to your legs. Ensure you keep your pins streamlined in skinny jeans, leggings or tights, so that the fur can frame your limbs to the max.

This Dr. Zivago look never disappoints on the glam stakes.

Fluffy extras

Embrace the fluff factor with Siberia-inspired extras. Keep the cold out with furry snoods and scarves draped over shoulders, big hats – Cossack style – cuddling heads, and mittens over paws – all easy ways to add fur accents to your look.

If you want a colour contrast, the high street has rainbow bright numbers for a fun approach. Many of the above are available in the shops now at extraordinary discounts.

Throw practicality out of the window with this season’s surprise fuzzy evening extras: think sandals trimmed with fluffy marabou and clutch bags decked out in cosy shearling. They won’t keep you warm but they will look furry fabulous.

It just so happens that I have some fab bargains for you too! I have lots of faux fur items and vintage inspired gloves listed on Ebay right now! I have a Buy it Now price but you can make me an offer – I need to get rid of all my Winter stock so do take a look. Click on the picture below to have a browse.

In The Deep Midwinter

8 Dec
In The Deep Midwinter

Do you have dark hair and dark eyes like Vanessa Hudgens? Lucky you! Winter is your season and you find lots of gorgeous colours in the shops to choose from right now.

Black IS in your palette but why choose black when you could be looking fabulous in teal, purple or scarlet?

Even though you CAN wear black, why not team your black with a dark shade such as black-brown and aubergine, or for a sophisticated look, royal purple. If you like to make a statement, try black with a single bold colour, such as scarlet.

To balance your look wear strong, dark colours near your face. Contrast these with lighter or brighter colours from your palette. Always wear two dark colours together and never two light.

Enjoy the party season!

Not sure what colours to choose for your party frock? You need to be colourised! Contact me to book in before Christmas!

Nauticoco detachable peplum belts

11 Sep

Ladies, I just found this fantastic website called Nauticoco and just had to share it with you!

We are all probably familiar with the peplum trend. It was first introduced in the 1940s and had a revival in the 1980s. We saw the peplum last year, and it was all over the Autumn/Winter 2012 catwalks so it looks like a trend that is here to stay.

These cute little detachable peplum belts really are a chic and sexy way to update your look this Autumn/Winter. They come in 12 colour ways and they are reversible, so lots of choice! I personally will be investing in the bubble silk gold/taupe one and the orange one. The price point is also very accessible so if you don’t want to invest in a new dress this season, give last season’s dress some va va voom!

A peplum is a great way to create the illusion of a waist for those with a boyish shape and fantastic for balancing out the inverted triangle body shape. It creates a beautiful feminine shape and instantly makes the waist look smaller.

Ladies with a triangle or pear shape would be best advised to avoid this trend as it will only make your hips appear larger. Similarly, it is not a flattering shape for apples or rounds.

Style your peplum with your favourite LBD or try it with a patterned pencil skirt and a plain top. Add some colour pop heels and some lady like Stella & Dot jewellery like this Astor 5 strand bib and you are all set! You can even wear your peplum over trousers for ultimate modern day time glamour. So ladies, which one will you choose?
