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:

Trend Spotting Fall 2017 – White Footwear

I love the fact that over the past few years people have thrown caution to the wind and included white in their post Labour day wardrobe.  From winter white denim to cream coloured suits – I love it all.  White is such a clean and flattering colour, and while it makes it extra challenging for klutzes like me to maintain a tidy appearance all day long I still love to rock it.

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year, you know that the white sneaker trend has officially become a wardrobe staple.  Whether you rock them with dresses or suits, jeans or joggers they look great and add an extra bit of cool to your look. This season though, the white footwear trend has been elevated to a new level.  While the casual sneaker remains a staple, many designers such as The Row, Balenciaga and Marc Jacobs all sent fabulous white boots and shoes down the runway during their Fall/Winter 2017 shows. One of my favourite fashion mavens Celine Aagard even included a gorgeous pair of white shoes in her collection for Eurosko.  This trend is showing no signs of slowing down as designers have also featured white footwear in their Spring 2018 presentations, most recently Rag and Bone during New York Fashion Week.  Needless to say – I love this trend!

While white footwear is not for the timid, it is fun, playful and definitely makes a statement.  My favourite is the white bootie and the white heeled shoe – both of which can be easily worn with many outfits.  Here are some of my favourite white footwear from the Fall 2017 runways and Instagram:
