How to build a fashion girl wardrobe
Have you heard about the latest It girl to hit the style scene? She might look familiar. She’s you! Well, she will be when you’ve finished poring over these pages, anyway…
As we’ve said for a while, velvet is the top textile for AW16. But the savviest among us are eschewing dresses in favour of rocking velvet to the power of two. Yep, you only need to glance at the shops right now to realise that these ultra-cool twinsets are everywhere, from ASOS to M&S. It’s no surprise; the catwalks were awash with velvet suits, from Alberta Ferretti to Stella Mccartney. Pair with a lightweight poloneck underneath, or wear on its own. Either way, this outfit is ideal with Stan Smiths for day, while stilettos make it after-dark appropriate.
