Brrrr Winter Style Guide.. Part 1


Well well well what a weekend hey, on Friday I was still wearing my cropped black leather jacket still feeling smug & warm. On Saturday it was warmer out than it was in, & I took delight in warming up in the Sun- Still in my cropped leather jacket. On Saturday night I had to get my faux fur on & get my ass out of the door, much to my disappointment I wasn’t too hot wearing it, much winter coat of last year! Yesterday I was cold & wet most of the day and really felt like having a duvet day.
All this activity has confirmed in my mind that, sorry for saying it, winter is on its way. So put your cute little sandals, crop tops and rainbow dresses away. Some of the biggest trends for Autumn Winter 2012, are the oversized silhouette, Berry shades- Burgundies, Purples & Reds, Masculine styling/tailoring, and Black on Black- think fashion Goth =)


The fashion Goth look was seen on the Gucci Runway for Autumn Winter 2012, I love the combination of different materials to create depth & interest. This is a key element of doing the Black on Black trend, two black will never be exactly the same so why try to match them?!
Here is my “Wish List” for the Black on Black Trend from, and boutique that sell in shops all through the country and online.
1st on there is this STUNNING!!! Alexander McQueen Victorian Black Lace Jacquard Pencil Dress. I reckon you would feel like a million dollars wearing this. It is sexy yet feminine at the same time; I love the high neckline & the mix of different lace.

Another knock out from Alexander McQueen with this classic Sculpted Black Wool Crepe Coat, this has just been reduced as well! Check it out at
I would these brilliant YSL Tribute Black Patent Leather High Heel Patent Sandals. The Peep Toe Sandal is massive for Autumn Winter & is a classic design that will always look great. These would look great with jeans, dresses skirts, leggings or worn with socks! Amazing!
To complete the look I would finish with this Gucci stirrup brocade Black Leather Clutch Bag. I love everything about it! Stunning
So what do you think? Will you be trying the Black on Black trend this Autumn Winter?
