Tempting Thigh Highs

Thigh high boots were everywhere on the catwalks of the different Fashion Weeks, the most recent being Givenchy at PFW (pictured) It may have been presented for SS15 but its definitely a trend to watch for the Autumn and Winter months too. Perfect for keeping you lovely and cosy whilst also keeping you uber stylish, which lets face it is the most important aspect! A good friend of mine also pointed out that thigh high boots also made a regular appearance on one of my favourite shows; Gossip Girl! Ms SVW loved a good thigh high boot and lets be honest, if its good enough for one of the most stylish fictional characters on television, then it is certainly good enough for me.

They may not seem like the easiest style to pull off however they are surprisingly flattering provided you choose the correct style and length. Perfect for emphasizing your legs,another key trend highlighted by Tom Ford at London Fashion Week. Thigh highs will elongate your legs, guaranteed to leave even the shortest girls with enviable pins!

Top Tip: shorter girls (like myself) don’t wear the boots too far up your leg as it will make your thighs look shorter…nobody wants this!

London Fashion Week

Hey Guys,

London Fashion Week has just finished up, leaving a stiletto shaped hole in my heart. Following NY Fashion Week is no easy task, however of course they pulled out all the stops to ensure LFW was one to remember. I personally loved the styles present on the catwalks. They are actually looks that can be worn by us normal girls too! I am very excited for the SS15 styles to come into play.

There are many styles to look out for in Spring 2015. My favourites that seem to be prevalent across many of the designer catwalks, include; Ox-Blood, transparent and sheer fabrics, white and muted colours and of course black! I have put together some pictures of my favourite looks from London Fashion Week. I particularly loved the Temperley London catwalk which is shown at the end of this post.

Enjoy Ladies

David Koma

These designs consisted of great structure within each piece. The different fabrics and texture used for each, create a sophisticated appeal. The simple and understated colours mixed with the monochrome aspect add a timeless effect to these styles. I’m also in love with the shoes used throughout David Korma’s show.

Christopher Kane

I loved the looks present on the Christopher Kane catwalk in London. I admire how he mixes a masculine appeal into his clothing. The shapes and colours used are perfect for the woman who wants to be taken seriously. There is almost a work wear appeal to some of the pieces and they look ‘fierce’ for want of a better word. I really cannot pull off saying fierce but that is what his shows radiate! The ox-blood colouring present, is perfectly complemented by the use of monochrome and all white.The sheer fabrics are also seen on this catwalk. I love the mixture between the transparent black material and the crotchet/lace texture used in the dress pictured below.

Tom Ford

Never one to disappoint, Tom Ford showed us that black, black and more black will be prevalent through to Spring. Mixed with metallic and sheer fabrics, black is remaining a serious style staple according to Mr. Ford. I for one will not be disputing this fact! The detail used on each catwalk piece was incredible and really showed that black is anything but boring. Glamour, opulance and sex appeal; classic Tom Ford.

Simone Rocha

The Irish born designer that is Simone Rocha, is making a serious name for herself in the fashion world. Her catwalk show for London Fashion week showcased a mixture of black and muted colours; including the ever popular white. I personally loved the trim of each piece and the use of the scalloped edges. Sheer fabrics were once again in use, take note ladies!

Osman

This show also reinforced the use of the monochrome appeal for Spring 2015. Softer colours like the powder blue was also showcased on Osman’s catwalk. The textures again softened the looks, creating a feminine and ladylike allure.

Temperley London

I fell in love with the designs showcased throughout this show. The colours used are beautiful and perfect for Spring. From the mixture between the white and clashing colours to the soft, pastel blues in play, Temperley London have created stunning Spring/Summer inspiration. I love the use of the white pant suit. It is so versatile and can be utilised to achieve many different looks.
