Fall Colours

Fall Colours

As much as I love the novelty of Fall–the crisp autumn leaves fallen on ground, the nip in the air and sunlight playing hide and seek. I dislike the sudden burst of cold biting my senses and the general greyness. The best way to inject some colour and break this greyness? Bright coloured trousers and a statement bag that can double up as a conversation starter.

Here, I’ve paired coral trousers with a simple striped tee. I’ve used a scarf and sun glasses for it was one of those brilliant sunny, fall day. Finally, there’s the star of the show–the bright, bold, fun lizard bag by Christopher Raeburn for Amex UK—a big highlight at this year’s LFW.

A fun bag like this can up the ante on any outfit, don’t you think? So, tell me how do you stay cool and hot in autumn?

Elegance as they say is an attitude. So, for my maiden venture covering the London Fashion Week (LFW), I decided to take the elegant route with this simple yet sophisticated dress in wine red.

LFW-What I Wore

LFW-What I wore

Sure, being eccentric would’ve earned me some brownie points but it would have seemed all too deliberate and in any case I don’t let fashion own me it is the other way round.

What to wear to Fashion Weeks

Dress: Debenhams, Necklace: H&M, Earrings and Bangles: Claire’s Watch: Hubby’s, Bag: Next, Lips: Mac (Up the Amp), Umbrella: Zara, Heels: Clarks

I’ve used a statement necklace and dull gold bangles and earrings to accessorize the look. Whilst I really wanted to carry a statement bag, I chose the roomiest tote I had to carry my camera, tablet, notebook, phone and a pair of flats.

“Elegance is Refusal,” Coco Chanel said and I am definitely good at refusing fashion rules made by others.

(P.S: A special thanks to A Cup Of Style for liking my style and capturing me for Fashiolista :D)

One of my favourite icons of all time Coco Chanel once famously stated, “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” After my maiden venture covering the first day, I am more than convinced.

London Fashion Week taught me:-

1) Rain or Shine, London loves fashion.

2) They might be the least talked about people and probably under appreciated. But the staff and workers ensures that there is a method to madness plus in their black attire they were stylish. Period.

So, yes there is more to fashion than clothes. There is art, culture, ideas, attitude and originality. Don’t you agree?
