Tribal, Aztec and Navajo influences still going strong for AW11

Yes guys, tribal print is still good to go for your Autumn/Winter wardrobe! Vair good news as it means you can keep wearing your summer garms (plus layers, of course) :D.

ISABELA MARANT, ROKSANDA ILNCIC, CHLOE and PROENZA SCHOULER led the trend on the A/W catwalks.

  1. ISABELA MARANT

 Fringing,  Navajo print, fur, feathers, leather, beads: love!
2. ROSANDA ILNCIC
The bright feather sections really pack a punch against the neutral coloured fabric and the clean-cut coat shapes.  I love the different the way different textures of feathers have been used.
3. CHLOE
The poncho makes a return at Chloe.
4. PROENZA SCHOULER
This is my personal fave collection of the season :D.  The colour palette, fabric, texture and print are all amazing! Maybe it’s just me, but the print makes me think of space invaders?
Hope you enjoyed this one – I’m so excited to get stuck in to the new season fashion (it will take my mind off the oncoming cold and the end of lovely holiday times!).  Next post I’m going to hunt down the high street beauties influenced by these collections :).  See you then!

PRINT – ways to wear it.

In my last post I looked at Diane Von Furtsenburg, Givenchy and L.A.M.B’s printed creations for Spring/Summer 2011, and although they are beautiful most of us can’t afford designer :P.  So in this post I’m looking at affordable ways to wear this seasons print-trend.

OUTFIT #1

Printed t-shirt, £15, black and white Aztec print leggings (Oh-so Givenchy! Check out my previous post) £26 both from URBANOUTFITTERS.co.uk.

Snake print headband, £6.99 RIVER ISLAND.  Festival bag, £20 from ASOS.com.  Elephant print TOMS from SCHUH.co.uk (soooo cute! I love elephants.)

Teaming printed leggings and accessories with a fun, laid back t-shirt is a perfect look for daytime.  You could also dress up the leggings with a pair of wedges and some tribal jewellery.

OUTFIT #2


Aztec print top, £16 and printed skirt £34.99 both from TOPSHOP.  Black wedge sandals £90 from FLY London at SCHUH.co.uk.  Woven navajo backpack £46 from URBANOUTFITTERS.co.uk.  Printed headband, £3.99 from NEW LOOK.

I really like this as an outfit,  I would wear it for daytime but you could dress it up by wearing a black lace top like this one from ASOS.com:

Hope this post was helpful and inspiring etc!  Went on a stylespot today and found some lovely lookin’ peeps so watch out for the ‘you’ve been BELFASHED #3’ post tomorrow.

PRINT pick ‘n’ mix.

Prints are still going strong but after the animal print take-over last year, we’re ready for a change.

Diane Von Furtsenburg mixed up stylised spot prints on a sexy silhouette – this is a very wearable outfit as the print doesn’t swamp the model’s body.  The balance between flesh and print is just right and the belted waist pulls the whole look together.

Givenchy’s look harder to pull off but the black and white graphic-y tribal print would look great in a different shape.

L.A.M.B.  Spring 2011.  Image from http://www.harpersbazaar.com

Gwen Stefani’s label L.A.M.B. featured bright, crisscrossing primary colours against tartan and white.  I love the way the primary colours are slightly off – the red is more of a burgundy, the yellow is a  mustard shade and the blue is a bright cobalt.  Stefani looks great! Love her hair and red lippy.

I hope everyone had a nice Easter! Although I still haven’t been able to celebrate it yet 😛 (read previous post.)  Watch out tomorrow for some prints on the high street.  Any ideas or suggestions? let me know!
