October Stylist Picks

October Picks

This month we are going to start with new capsule wardrobe for the year end (and to those who will be welcoming Autumn/Winter 2011). Once again over the coming months, we’ll be selecting pieces that combine effortlessly to create a whole host of stylish looks. They are classic pieces with trend twist that you will still be able to wear past this season and beyond.

Finding new ways to wear things you already own is a fashion win-win — not only are you getting more from your existing wardrobe, but it forces you to think outside the box and develop a knack for creating new outfits. I like to find the challenge to recycle my autumn/winter clothing and sometimes create another new look like adding splash of bright colours tops or accessories, combine them with my summer clothes or get lots of quirky pair of tights.

Wear-Trends-of-Fall-2011-For-Sixties-Women

Sixties-inspired dresses varied from full-skirt evening frocks with low d├ęcolletage to geometric shift dresses with high necks.

I’m a strong advocate of the 60’s fashion trends - colour block and shape with minimalist lines to nip and shape your figure and show it off to its best. Pinafores, shift dresses, bracelet sleeves, polo necks et al were all shown creating a sophisticated affair.

The sixties trend popularised the A-line cut and mini dresses with Peter pan collar, graphic prints and edgy cuts. You can pair it with Mary Jane pumps or T-bar heels for that chic sixties look. If you want something more sophisticated wear an A-line dress with tights or knee high socks. Pair of tights are pretty much an essential for autumn and winter if I wear my shift dresses and A-line skirts and I also love using them to add a bit of colour and pattern to an outfits.

Stilettos, low-heel sandals, leather boots, and kitten heels can be seen in fall collections. Wear them with bright tights or leggings.

Here's some tips on how to enhance your sixties look: wear a swing coat with a knee-length skirt or shift dress. The skirt can be longer than the coat while the dress should be a bit shorter. You can define your waist in a swing coat by adding a flattering belt to it. Choose few of your sixties inspired outfits, try to incorporate them subtly into your style. Experiment, mix and match and you will find how to manage trends within your style. Just pick one to flatter your figure…
