Addiction nineteen: MINIMALISM
Had enough of extreme silhouettes, exaggerated shoulders, and sky scrapper heels? Me too! autumn/winter see’s the return of the fashion Purist! With pared-back separates polished daywear and wait for it.... the evening trousers!! Fashion has grown up this season with the rebirth of the woman! Longer skirts, luxe cashmere jumpers, tailored trousers and the adorable kitten heel are key staples to have in your wardrobe. With the continuing economic down turn women are also making more considered purchases with function now trumping fantasy i.e. coats that turn into jackets ala Burberry. Longevity, versatility, understated and minimal are the key words and they haven’t been in fashion for a long time. It’s a seismic style shift with a welcome return to the new definition of Easy Chic!
