Action for Blind






Fashion  A-Z …


A – Animal print, leapard spots or zebra stripes, anything goes. Animal shaped accessories like the parakeet clutch bag by Erin Fetherston will bring much fun to your wardrobe this season.

B – Block colour is exactly that, blocks of strong colour worn on either top or bottom.  Contrast rather than match your colours to stay on trend.

C – Cigarette pants: Ankle grazing, tailored and often tapered (cut closer to the lower leg) smart trousers, usually worn with a crease. Most flattering when worn low on the hips.  This season go for a very tailored look with  a flat front and slimmer leg for understated summer chic.

D – Denim for every occassion.  Worn on top and bottom this look is tricky to pull off, but can look great in the summer. Opt for lighter rather than dark denim if going head to toe.  Denim longer length skirts and flares will make you a fashion VIP this season.

E – Ethereal whites, silvers, soft greys and nudes in flowing pleats, drapes, silk and satin. Absolutely huge on the spring/summer 2011 catwalk.

F – Flares: Peace man, the classic 70s get up.  The flare has amazing leg-lengthening properties when worn right. The full flare has full legs, flaring out gradually at the bottom, whilst the kick-flare has a standard leg and then a wide flare kicks-out at the ankle. The skinny flare, which is a very slimline cut that hugs curves and is narrow in the leg but graduates into a full flare at the ankle is good for balancing out full hips.

Stay posted for G – Z!
