Just because the weather is getting colder, it doesn't mean that your style has to go into hibernation! After having a skim through the fall 2009 rtw runway shows, I found two looks that will liven up your winter wardrobe - plus, I have re-created the looks using items from the high street (because not all of us can afford to spend £800 on one dress!!)


-Graphic houndstooth adds a lighter touch to winter's black palettes
-Oversized checks, ass seen at Preen, give the look a contemporary cool element


Dress £35 from Debenhams
Fur Coat from H&M
Boots £95 from Miss Selfridge


-Razor-sharp cutting skims curves with super-fine accuracy
-Black and charcoal grey make for a dramatic, graphic palette

Elie Saab

Dress from Warehouse
Shoes £100 from TopShop
Gloves £18 from Asos
Tights £5 from Dorothy Perkins

I am absolutely in love with everything velvet at the moment! The item that I want the most is this gorgeous biker jacket by Christopher Kane (but it is £848!!!!!!! ouch!!) it is so so so so perfect! Damn I wish I was rich! :'(

There are, however, some more affordable items on the high street. I found these two in TopShop:

Dress £35

Shrug £30

I recently purchased this awesome leopard print body from TopShop, and I've got one or two things to wear with it, but I'm looking for other items to buy that can go with it. I made up two outfits (one using items from TopShop, and the other using items from Miss Selfridge) and I think now I need to start saving up so I can buy everything!!

TopShop outfit: Skirt £38, Shoes £75, Bag £85.

Miss Selfridge outfit: Leggings £35, Shoes £25, Belt £18, Bag £25, Earrings £6.
