Fashion Blogger Styles: 3 Different Looks

Check out the latest looks from these fantastic bloggers…

 The lovely Laura wrote a brilliant review of the Falke Pure Matt 100 in her blog – So Far So Chic. And of course in true Falke style “they never rode down, snagged or sagged.” Laura shows off the tights’ sheer to waist brief design beautifully in her chic black micro dress, proving that even with flirty hemlines no reinforced material will appear to distract from your ensemble. Steal Laura’s look by combining inky black quilted boots, black opaque tights, a black long sleeved dress, some fabulous sunnies and a matching large leather bag. This elegant style is the perfect solution to that chilly winter/spring transition allowing you to stay warm and look gorgeous at the same time.


Seamed tights

Check out Mary’s pins in the Jonathan Aston Contrast Seam and Heel Tights that fit right at home in the We Heart Vintage blog with their flirty scarlet seam and Cuban heel detail. For retro legs that wow, follow Mary’s example and team these stunning seamed tights with a gorgeous red vintage dress and black leather jacket. Back seams and Cuban heels aren’t just synonymous with vintage style, they’ll also work to elongate those lovely legs, while the scarlet version provides a modern update on the classic style.

Tartan Two Piece from Topshop Loving Youth Label

Charlotte from Lurch Hound Loves was rocking the Jonathan Aston Lurex Anklets at LFW, matching these fabulous anklets with an on-trend tartan midi-dress and cropped top combo. Metallic is set to be big next season and socks were seen all over London Fashion Week  AW14 so make sure that you stock up now. Copy Charlotte’s clever combination of on-trend pieces by rocking a baby pink satchel along with a tartan outfit worn over a top with a high neck. With so many fashion boxes ticked, it’s no wonder that her look was picked up by Company Magazine, Elle, Vogue, Grazia, Glamour, and You Magazine.

Our Favourite Retro Looks

Nylons_backseamRetro style has never been more current, thanks to the various nods to the past by some of our favourite designers each season.  From swinging 60s to 20s opulence, make sure you’re making the most of your tights drawer with our favourite retro looks…

Coloured tights

For a swinging 60s look you can’t go wrong with bold coloured tights.  Choose shades of olive green, mustard yellow and rusty orange to get the 60s vibe.  Choose matte and ultra thick opaques or wool tights – think Velma from Scooby Doo geek chic.  Combine with print smocks, mini skirts and monochrome for a look worthy of the decade that brought us the Beatles, flower power and the summer of love.
