It’s an over­all look

Cheshire Life: March 2019

Cheshire Life - - Fashion -

The jump­suit seems to have mor­phed into some­thing akin to the boiler suit this sea­son, a much more util­i­tar­ian piece of kit than its pre­de­ces­sor. Where the jump­suit with its off-the-shoul­der, span­gly style con­jures up a past of nights at Stu­dio 54 in the 1970s the boiler suit takes its in­spi­ra­tion from art stu­dents at an anti-poll tax demo. Noth­ing wrong with this, in fact it’s prob­a­bly dead right for the un­cer­tain po­lit­i­cal cli­mate. A trendy piece of work­wear such as this can be worn in a bar with at­ti­tude and when you’re ser­vic­ing your own car...there can’t be many pieces of cloth­ing you can say that about. In fact it’s a win-win! Any­way, I do rather like these dif­fer­ent takes on the all-in-one. In fact I can’t wait for the new­est ver­sion of the flight suit. This is an­other over­all kind of out­fit but a bit bag­gier. It’s just so Top Gun. I’d avoid the Avi­a­tors though. You don’t want to look like a fash­ion cliche. HEADY STUFF Hold onto your hats. The head­band is the only ac­ces­sory you need this sum­mer. I’m not talk­ing a sad head­crush­ing elas­ti­cated band to keep your hair out of your eyes but a rather more mag­nif­i­cent cre­ation - a kind of ca­sual tiara. All the fash­ion-con­scious celebs are wear­ing them, like Mil­lie Mack­in­tosh, Sam Faiers and Emma Louise Con­nolly. Pic­tured here is one of my fave styles. Glitz n’ Pieces, £41 glitzn­pieces.com LAMÉ EX­CUSE There’s a touch of Rus­sian oli­garch’s mis­tress to this pussy­bow blouse which is one rea­son I love it. The other mes­sage I’m de­riv­ing is why save sparkles for the fes­tive sea­son? Hon­estly, gold lamé looks just as fab­u­lous in the sum­mer when you’re sunkissed and sen­sa­tional. It’s de­signed by cult-ish Ukrainian de­signer Pe­tar Petrov who is al­ready a fash­ion star in Vi­enna where he lives and who I pre­dict we’ll soon hear more of in the UK.
