A/W 2012-13 Trends: Beauty

Hey everyone. So this is the last post in the series, if you've missed any you can find all of my womenswear fashion trends posts here.

Hair

So firstly, hair wise. Dyed hair is still big, so if your tempted by ombre hair, go for it! Top Knots are also really fashionable, seen a lot on the catwalk, so now you have an excuse for your quick hairstyle. Side partings were also seen along with braided hair. Theres some really easy tutorials on YouTube if you type in braided hair, so check those out! You can even combine two, to make a really effective hair style, like the top knot braid in the picture below!

Now, focusing on make-up, the face was often left very bare, with dramatic eyes or lips.

Eye Makeup

Eye-wise, bold looks are really big. Strong filled in eyebrows were all that were seen on the catwalk, so invest in a brow kit now! Coloured mascara is also huge, particularly blue, but if you have blue eyes like me, purple really makes them pop!

Lips

Lips. Berry lips are really key this season, but if your looking for a statement look, glitter lips were also seen! Check out Limecrime for glitter lip gloss, or try applying eyeshadow over a base!

A/W 2012-13 Fashion Trends: ETC

This is the 3rd of four posts discussing A/W trends shown at London Fashion Week. If you missed it, you can find all my womenswear fashion trend summaries here.

Like I explained in the first one, I've tried to group the trends together as best as I can, but inevitably, some just don't fit anywhere. This post deals with those that don't fit anywhere.

Watching Women's Hockey Final at London 2012 Olympics

London 2012 Olympic Park

If you don't know, I love (field) hockey. I play on my University, and its a massive part of my life. I was lucky enough as part of my birthday present to get tickets for the Olympic Women's Hockey Final and it was honestly the best experience I have ever had. The park was amazing, the hockey was enviable, and the atmosphere was breathtaking. GB won a bronze (so amazing to see us get a medal)! It was a day of a lifetime and I am so grateful for my parents getting me tickets. I know you can now do tours of the Olympic Park, and I'd recommend it hugely because you have no idea of the scale of things until you are there yourself. It's so big, and makes your hair stand up on the back of your neck just by walking round, it's that amazing!

I took over 200 pictures that day, but heres some of the highlights, although its still pretty picture heavy.

A/W 2012-13 Fashion Trends: Prints

This is the second of a series of four posts discussing all the trends seeing on the catwalk at London Fashion Week, including beauty. If you missed the first, you can find my royalty inspired fashion trends post here.

Prints

As the title suggests, this post is dedicated to prints. Luckily, a lot of these have appeared quite recently on the high street, meaning you can recycle your wardrobe and just top it up with accessories! So whether your going to make like Missoni and don zig zags or wear some Topshop digital prints, there is something for everyone this season.

A/W 2012-13 Fashion Trends: Royalty Inspired

The first of four posts, over the next couple of weeks I'll be focusing on the key womenswear fashion trends set to appear up and down the high street following yet another successful London Fashion Week.

Royalty Inspired


This week I'm talking about the trends that are inspired by the royal family. Since Kate and Will's wedding, the royal family seems to have become more relevant in today's society, and this has transferred into fashion.

Key Colours


The colour palette is very rich and regal. Think warm tones in burgundy and purple. For me, these are true a/w colours.

Key Fabric

Following the royal trend, both velvet and fur played a large role on the catwalks.

Now onto the clothes. Luxurious layering is a huge trend, so layer up on trends, and tick all the royal trends at once. For all those magpies like me, intricate embellishments are big, so stock up on bibs and collars for subtle flashes, or invest in a trophy jacket for a bold statement. A-line skirts flatter all shapes. High-waisted versions cover hips and stomachs, whilst pleats will create curves. Capes also play a role this season. Look for caplets, coats and even cape details on dresses and tops to fit this trend in with your style.

Clothes

Top's wise, necks are higher. Roll necks and conservative high necks are key to this look. If that's not your thing, maybe a lower cut jumper go for one with fur enhanced shoulders.

As always the military trend pops up this year. Team it with country classics and gloves (particularly elbow gloves) and you'll tick three royal inspired looks in one outfit.

So that's the royal inspired trends for this season. Personally, these are some of my favorite and so versatile.

Make sure you follow me so you get the other three posts in this series covering the A/W trends featured in London Fashion Week.

Thanks for reading,
xoxo
