Where I Occasionally Search For “Trend” Pieces

3 Feb

Dresses

I often have a look on ASOS for those fashiony pieces I want to experiment with, but don’t want to spend a lot of money on.

Recent acquisitions have been a sequined sweater, a skirt made from scuba material, leopard print pants and today I was checking out denim jumpsuits and cropped kick flares.

I like ASOS not only because I can dabble in these “trend” pieces inexpensively, but also because…

  • They have a diverse range of sizes (petite, tall and curvy) and fits.
  • You can watch the piece you’re interested in being worn on a catwalk video to get a good idea of how it looks on the body.
  • They offer free postage and easy returns.
  • They have a very broad selection, from their own brand to designer, to choose from.

While I was searching for jumpsuits and flares, I got sidetracked and found myself oohing and aahing over some great dresses.  While I’m not wanting to make a dress purchase at the moment, (If I had an occasion I’d definitely come here to see what I could find)  I thought you might be. Here’s a few that caught my eye…

The Personal Style Of…Tonne Goodman

22 Jan

While some people have a wardrobe full of various styles and like to dress according to what they’re doing, their mood, who they’re spending time with or what’s currently in fashion, others like to have a uniform (Remember we talked about that here) and wear the same thing, or a version of it, every day.

Former model and current U.S. Vogue fashion editor, Tonne Goodman is one such person.

Her signature look is – straight leg white jeans (occasionally black) with a turtleneck black sweater (occasionally a crisp shirt) and flats.  Sometimes she wears a scarf and she mostly always wears a large men’s style watch (otherwise, unadorned).  Her hair is worn long and she never wears makeup.

The Master Of Dressing For Summer, Classic Style

13 Jan

Summer style for classic dressers can be challenging.  Particularly holiday dressing and even more so, beach holiday dressing.

Some classic dressers, myself included, are not typically attracted to floaty, flowy, soft, patterned fabrics and can therefore struggle when it’s time to pack our cases for a destination where it’s going to be hot.

Our wardrobes might be mostly made up of tailored, safe, traditional, structured pieces.

But obviously we can’t go on a sea or pool side holiday (or in summer in general) in our blazers, crisp shirts and trench coats. So our challenge is to find casual clothes that work for our style, in the heat.

The person who achieved this more than anyone, was Jackie Kennedy.

It was all about keeping what she wore very simple and then decorating with fabulous accessories.

For those fellow classic dressers out there, here are some photos to give you some inspiration.

*Remember these photos are just to give you ideas.  It’s up to you to adapt the look for your age, size, height, budget, etc, etc.
