Take a trip to the woods and explore the wonder of new trends afoot. Our latest trend editorial takes a trip through imagination, incorperating innovative textures in a successfully juxtaposing way.
Think big in the literal sense as exaggerated shape creates drama which is just enough to get away with in a vibrant suburban landscape. The first point of note is the jacket, oh that jacket, how it pads out a petite frame for warmth, giving practicality to a visually driven outfit (always helps). Procured from ASOS, this new fluffy friend is a saviour for a cold day and instant transformer of bland looks to fashion statements.
A jacket so bold can be overwhelming, but when paired with casual ripped black denim jeans, a juxtaposition is successfully created to counter-balance chilled and dramatic vibes. The jeans themselves fit like a dream, of course, being crafted from every girl’s saviour (that being stretch denim). Very wash-and-go, these denim beauties proclaim an ‘I don’t care’ attitude in the best possible way.
The shoes speak for themselves in term of impact, channelling retro rockstar attitude yet still maintaining a futuristic appeal. Glitter emblazoned and several inches high, these Jeffrey Campbell Lita’s will add height not just to your confidence. Lace up and platform, this style commands confidence and takes a little edge to pull off, but have faith they flatter and elongate the frame to assist this.
On the basics front an Obey top takes simple shape and invokes commercial appeal which the fashion and art savvy can appreciate in unison. Low cut at the sides, this vest has a slight daring shape perfect for pairing with pretty lingerie under and allowing a peek of bra lace to show through. There is also option to under layer for those who prefer a more conservative aesthetic.
Accessories complete this look, bringing the variety together to work well on a ‘just enough’ approach to over-styling. The Vivienne Westwood Derby Exhibition Backpack changes Clueless 90’s kitsch to high end editorial chic with an adorable pink and cream tartan print, crafted in Westwood’s innovative choice of materials.
The final touch to this look is the Diamante Choker, which manages to exude a feel of prettiness and grunge simultaneously, perhaps result of the thick black fabric completed with silver studded gems. Tied in a bow at the back, this accessory can create a beautiful trailing ribbon at the back for a gorgeous finish on both sides, with option to tie this out of sight if an alternate style is preferred.
The hair and make up to go with compliments the combination of items to make this fashion forward and interesting to shoot. A smoky eye creates drama (the good kind), accented with subtle highlighting and contouring for further depth. The hair is subtly tousled with a direct centre-parting and block bottom cut which flatters the face shape and adds to the overall grunge influence.
