After my time at London Fashion Week and The Look Show, I came home with a notebook full of inspiration for my Autumn/Winter wardrobe. All this week I’ll be creating looks based on the AW11 trends, using pieces from my wardrobe and a few key purchases.
Aaaah, the androgyny trend. It rolls around every year and strikes fear into the heart of anyone over a size 12 and a B cup. The art of dressing like a boy while still looking like a girl is one I’ve always found impossible to pull off. My natural style is quite girly, so wearing mannish brogues, minimalist jewels and buttoned-up shirts is way out of my comfort zone. But, androgyny is a big trend for AW11 and no one ever said this blogging thing was easy…
Okay, so maybe I cheated a little. I don’t think peachy pink sheer blouses with horseshoes on really fit into the androgynous trend. Forgive me. The trousers are surprisingly flattering, and wearing them with more feminine pieces like the blouse and pumps softens the look. I added a tough bag and a simple statement ring to fit with the minimalist look.
