Autumn/Winter FAshion RED HOT TO PARTY! Tis the season, so light up the room… Monsoon This season is all about the luxe look. Forget prints, if it’s soft and strokeable then it’s bang on trend. Feathers, fur (fake, of course), and creamy pearls are everywhere. Make those feathers Marabou, the fur thick and floor-length and hang your granny’s pearls long. At CHANEL we had sumptuous shearling, PRADA was all about tactile textures, and CALVIN KLEIN coated everything in plastic to give that ultimate sheen. And of course, it’s party season so gold, silver and lamé are as hot as ever. House of Fraser But if there’s one colour that’s dominant right now it’s red, red, red. Wear it top to toe as seen at GIVENCHY, FENDI and FERRETTI. In fact, New Look Oliver Bonas Next Givenchy’s whole collection was dedicated to this, the warmest of colours. Just make sure you mix up those shades of red and contrast with a snap of blue or green. The best thing about red? It suits every skin tone going. So go red or dead. River Island Shoes-wise it’s all about the bling. Think diamanté, lamé and anything that sparkles and shines. If you’ve been hankering after mirrored cowboy boots then check out ISABEL MARANT. But if you prefer your twinkle a bit more low-key then silver Chelsea boots are all over the high street this season. ‘When it comes to bags, go large or go home...’ To accessorise, wear drop earrings in diamond if you’re that kind of woman or, for the rest of Wallis us, diamanté. Belts are wide and black or long and skinny as seen at MIU MIU. But whatever way you go, cinch in the waist of your dress. And make sure that dress trails the floor. When it comes to bags, go large or go home. Forget last season’s mini-bags. Think big and think hold-all. In keeping with the luxe trend it’s all about butter-soft leather and intricate stitching. Just make sure the leather is silver, of course. Or better yet, forget leather and go for chainmail as seen at CHRISTOPHER KANE. So get embossed and embellished and you’ll be full-on glamour, full-on trend and full-on ready to celebrate this party season. pink weddings magazine 23
