The Chic List for Autumn/Winter 2017

As the new season approaches, the high street shops are stacked with the latest Autumn/Winter collection. Sad to know but summer is officially over, and it’s time to organise your wardrobe for the coming winter months. Autumn is one of my favourite seasons. It’s the festive season for us and unlike winter, you do not need all the heavy layers to keep you warm. Wearing light, manageable layers can create unique autumn looks. Most of the high street retailers have received their Autumn/Winter drops and here are a few key trends and wardrobe staples you need to know about this season.

 

Dare to wear Red

The red hot colour is definitely the flavour of the season. Wherever I go on the high street, the shops are screaming of this trend. From coats to knitwear, dresses and boots, the high street is adamant that customers shop red. The fiery shade dominated the autumn/winter 2017 shows, with brands such as Givenchy and Max Mara sending head-to-toe red looks down the runway. Here is a my curated list of most wanted red items of this season.

 

 

Best transitional item

Blazer is a universal clothing item and can instantly fix any drab t-shirt/jeans outfit.This year the runways were dominated by power suits and checks. The check blazer/suit trend is here to slay your Autumn/Winter 2017 wardrobe . Here are some of my high street favourites.

 

 

Flowy day to night dresses 

 

Who says dresses are only for spring. There are some real jewels this season – beautiful dresses that can take you straight from a bright autumn day to chilly evenings. Wear it with boots during the day and furry sandals and long coats for an evening look.

 

Logo Inspired

 Designer slogan trend has come back in a big way this year. Slogan t-shirts are on every fashion blogger feed and most of the popular styles are sold out . Translate this trend to knitwear and you are now ready to slay the new season. Here are a few of my logo inspired high street inspirations.

 

Hope you enjoyed reading the post. Do share your autumn wardrobe staples. I would love to know what you are wearing this season.

Be my Valentine

It’s a coincidence that my due date is 14th Feb and I am hoping it turns out to be that day. Even though I won’t be able to venture out much, I still want to make it a special occasion.

Fine dining, night out, movie date seem to be some great options to spend the special day with your loved one. But who says you can’t have the same fun indoors? Here is how I intend to treat us special. I hope you will enjoy the idea of sweet treats in bed.

For my lookbook styling shoot with Jara I selected this eye-catching red Coco Rouge Dress from Jara’s limited edition collection. All of Jara’s clothes are made in UK using pure fabrics and that’s why the fabric feels silky smooth on your skin. Continue Reading

What’s your Red Carpet Style? House of Fraser

This Mother’s day I wrote  ‘Inspired by mum’ outfit post for House of Fraser’s blog, where I created a look taking inspiration from my mum. This month House of Fraser asked me to participate in ‘ What’s your Red Carpet Style’ competition where I had a to create my very own red carpet style outfit. Well I had a quick look in my closet and there was absolutely nothing that I could call as red carpet style. And frankly I did not have a reason to have one either. If I were to attend a red carpet occasion I would take inspiration from my favourite fashion celebrities like Victoria Bekham , Sonam Kapoor , Emma Watson and Alexandra Chung. I would probably choose something elegant yet with modern cuts and design. This dress below from French Connection which I wore at the #canthelpmyselfie event would come close to my red carpet style. All I need is the following items from House of Fraser to complete my look.

1. Sparkling faceted clutch bag 

2. These lovely diamante detail t-bar stiletto sandals Indian fashion blogger

I think the above items would definitely do justice to my dress and create a stunning red carpet outfit. Do share your red carpet outfit ideas here . Would love to hear bout your choices. Till then shine on.

Brand Collaboration – Jara Wine – Part 1

The-Red-Notebook-Indian-Fashion-stylist blogger-blogger-london-uk

This past month I have been working behind the scenes to curate a lookbook for a new and upcoming designer, Jara Wine. I met Jara at London Fashion Week and we started talking about our individual creative ventures. I can very well relate to Jara’s story as she was in PR and marketing before, and has now left her plush job to do what she absolutely loves – designing clothes. I am pleased to announce my styling collaboration with Jara where I have selected a few key pieces from her collection and styled them to fit my, and hopefully yours too, everyday lifestyle.
