29 9 09

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!!)

Houndstooth

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


Preen


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


Shaped

-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
