Trendspotting – Well Suited

Although my personal style is quite casual, I have always loved a good pants suit.  Maybe it’s because my mum is very particular about dressing professionally and wore a blazer to work almost every single day, but there is something about a great suit that gets me every time.  I was understandably thrilled when pants suits began trending again.  For a while there, ill fitting, dull coloured suits were the only options that most women had unless they were willing to spend an exorbitant amount of money, but now the tide has thankfully changed.

Skinny pants, oversized blazers, cropped pants, fitted jacket – they are all trending and they look fabulous!  Different fabrications and patterns help the wearer express their own individuality without having to say a word.  Paired with sneakers, block heels, t-shirts or chunky knits – the options are limitless and pants suits are now a great way to showcase your style and personality in a unique and chic way.  Thankfully this trend will be continuing into Spring 2018 and I cannot wait to see fresh takes on this classic trend!  Here are some of my favourite looks featuring the fabulous pants suit:

Trendspotting – Red Hot

I love how wearing a specific colour can influence your mood.  White is innocent and fresh, black is sophisticated and unfussy and red……well red screams power and confidence – red gets you noticed.  While I am generally a fairly shy person who is really not comfortable with a lot of attention, wearing red makes me feel strong, confident and in control.  Wearing red helps me to tap into my superpowers and in many ways is my not so secret weapon.  I was thrilled when I saw a ton of red gracing the Fall 2017 runways – Fendi, Jil Sanders and Victoria Beckham all showed gorgeous looks.  The street style take on this bold trend is just as fabulous – full red suits and bold accessories are definitely a trend that I can get behind.  Here are some of my favourite looks featuring this trend both on and off the runway:

Trendspotting – Check Mate

Plaid shirts, houndstooth coats and checkered anything for fall are hardly new trends, but this season things have been seamlessly integrated into fall fashion bringing new life to popular patterns.  While I will always have a soft spot for a great plaid shirt, this season I am loving the oversized checkered blazer.  This is such a versatile and wearable piece of clothing that looks great layered over jeans and a t-shirt, dressed up with a midi skirt or paired with cropped trouser for an elevated day look.  You will look fabulous however you choose to rock this trend.  Here are some of my favourite looks featuring the checkered blazer:
