Pretty Plum: My New Favourite Fall Colour

Published September 24, 2014 by The Feminist

Since autumn has now officially arrived, I believe it is only fair to start talking about what to wear this fall. Whereas I would normally bombard you with different trends and micro trends, I will now stick to the essentials. Because let’s face it, there is only one thing you really need to know about the fashion for fall 2014…and for once, it is a trend that is easy to remember:

WEAR PLUM

Seriously.

This has got to be the most beautiful colour on the planet.

So no matter whether you’re going for a gypsy look, French avant-garde chic or sporty nonchalance, it will always look 100 per cent fab if you wear it with a touch of this dark red/ deep purple plum.

Here are a couple of my favourite plummy things:

This gorgeous Giorgio Armani bag is just to die for, both figuratively (because très pretty) and financially (because très expensive).

Or what do you think about these sandals by Tod’s? Just wear them with some opaque panties or some cute socks and you are good to go!

Or you can go for this more affordable version at Topshop

A plum felt floppy hat is at the top of my wish list at the moment.

Plum is also a great colour for men’s clothes as well! A plum suit has got to be my favourite male look for this season, so if you guys want to get my approval (and a possible sexy glare): put on a plum suit.

Just sayin’.

And if I would have to name one ultimate plum accessory, without a doubt, it would have to be the plum lips. Could there possibly be anything sexier than those deep red lips, looking all shiny and rich as if you’ve just drunk an entire bottle of red wine?

Ha!

Every designer label has its own plum lipstick version, but if you are looking for a more affordable version: the Infallible Lipstick by L’Oreal in Persistent Plum is pretty perfect too.

But if you’re ready to go all out and spend loads of money on lipstick: buy this Bruised Plum lipstick by Tom Ford. It looks expensive, it feels expensive, it is expensive.

But hell, it makes you look like a true femme fatale meets powerful business woman, so I really don’t know why you’re not running to the shop as we speak!

Glow in the Day : the Neon Trend

Published January 26, 2013 by The Feminist

Remember when I posted about the pastel fashion trend of spring 2013? Well, if one side of the colour spectrum of spring 2013 will be pretty and subtle, the other side will be in-your-face bright with lots of neons and flashy colour block outfits.

So be gone, grey clouds and snowy weather! This spring will be all about supersonic super chocking bright colours!

Here are some of my favourite summer outfits:

Colour blocking is so cool and stylish! (mixing bright yellow with pink, purple and green simply makes you feel like the next Picasso of fashion!) Once you get the hang of it, it is dead easy to wear on a day-to-day basis. However, there is a fine line between looking totally cool and sunny and looking like a wannabe Nicki Minaj, so careful not to overdo it.

Sounds like a trend you would like to try? Then you should definitely scroll down and check out the neon accessories below. Shoes, nail polish, jewellery and handbags: the brighter, the better!

Being a true fashion daredevil myself, I’ll be diving headfirst into this trend. But what about you? Will you make a fashion statement this year in a neon colour blocking outfit? Or are you still a tiny bit uneasy about the in-your-face brightness?
