Khaki Green is on the radar and there is no hiding from this colour. Khaki Green (olive green) has become one of my favourite colours of recent. Balmain and H&M Studio AW14 collection are to blame in a good way of course. Not just assigned to the army/military but all over the catwalks and stores too. This hue can be teamed with absolutely anything, if you don't fancy dressing head to toe then start off by injecting the colour in accessories or nail polish.

1. Jumpsuit: H&M 

2. BSK Bomber Jacket: BERSHKA

3. Uh Oh Roll Down The Window OPI

4. Knitted Jumper: H&M

5. Nike Air Huaraches: OFFICE

6. Canvas Wide Brimmed Hat: ZARA

7. Princess Premium T-bar high shoes: TOPSHOP

There's Something About Velvet..

Embelm button Velvet Blazer: MANGO Outlet
Velvet Suit Trousers: MANGO Outlet
Lace-up Metal plate Leather Shoes: H&M

When you think of velvet what comes to mind.. Austin Powers, Rock & Roll, Retro, Nobility, Decadence, Soft to touch, Luxe. Well I have you know velvet is having a fashion moment. Gone are the days when velvet hindered in the heydays. The plush fabric is back like it never left. From bejewelled tones in blue, purple, green, red to black. 

Lately I have been obsessing over  Mango. And they have really stepped up their game of recently. Both from the mainline store and the outlet store. Would you believe me if I stated that the above  Velvet Trouser Suit was under £80?

Necklace + Bag: H&MWide leg Trousers: Zara 

Day 3 of LFW (and my final day) I opted to whip out my mustard wide leg trousers. Although in these snaps they look like a burnt orange. The true essence of the colour can be found here.  What I love about these trousers are the voluminous wide leg and of course the rich bold colour. To put a simple spin on the outfit I wore with a white wrap around blouse and accessorised with a statement jewelled necklace, finishing with a black and white chained bag which I used as a clutch.

The Coat Edit

Autumn/Winter is soon upon us. Even if the sun is still shinning (sigh) The shops have already started stocking the coats for the new season. Leaving us in awe in what coat to go for this year. Incase you have no idea.  Here's a selection I've picked out:-

1. Long Cotton Trench Coat: ZARA

 2. Handmade Long Coat: ZARA

3. Wool Blend Double Breasted Coat with Cashmere: M&S

  4. Donnie Faux Fur Lined Parka: Whistles

5.  Wool Blend Cape: Mango

  6. Camel Waterfall Coat: Next

7. Fluffy Wool Blend Coat: Topshop

8. Lapel Wool Blend Coat: Mango

It's always important when shopping for your winter coat that you buy a size up, especially to accommodate thicker layers such as heavy knitwear. You will wear your coat for longer periods, more often than anything else in your wardrobe, so it needs to be comfortable,  practical and flattering.

When I purchase coats, I tend to go for fabric, style and fit. I draw to wool coats, In bold colour ways; in a double breasted mannish style. And it works  for me every time and fits my body type perfect. Maybe this year I will go for something different, who knows… 

Which coat tickles your fancy?
