STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Texture Picks and Colours Mix

Purple was predicted from the spring and it now transcends into the winter. This week’s fabulous Fashionista selects her colours and textures like no other; to complete a classic outfit comprising of rich wines, cream, and brown and, most importantly, avoiding black, purple is an easy colour to slip into and stay! She combines knitwear upon knitwear with silk, denim and leather to create both an eclectic and stylish look that fits and ticks all the trend boxes.

Her skin tight trousers both brighten and soften her outfit. Their burgundy hue looks oh so expensive and allow her clothes be interesting — different from your average denim pair! These skinnies come in many a shade and are a key piece for the autumn and can be matched with anything. This Fashionista admits that purple reigns, but that she has also bought them in every shade that Next sells. Denim has embraced the colours of the rainbow, so let us also play like DKNY and Emilio Pucci, and too have pop coloured pins! Why not also add a chunky heeled winter bootie to elongate the legs. Lace-up and light up your outfit with a pair like these!

Woolly jumpers are also in don’t you know, as the sunshine is well and truly out! Don’t skimp this season is the advice we can take from this Fashionista’s outfit — pick cosy over "catching your death" and wrap yourself in high street’s finest cable knits, available in just about every shade. Whether you crave a simple cream block colour like this one, or one that stands out from the rest, add another layer. Her chunky knit has lovely details; its slightly cropped length which accentuates the waist and its bell sleeves with turn up ends is spot-on — it is all in the detail!

Her Hermès-inspired scarf immediately catches your eye. Perhaps because it is her statement piece. Its ornate and intricate pattern with splashes of colours looks the part against her plain wool jumper. Opened out fully, it reveals a fabulous tiger motif — yet more print pawed all over our clothes!

She adds another knit to her ensemble, her ruby red snug snood from River Island also keeping her warm! French Connection also keeps a cool collection, a chic accessory to keep the chills away.

This double scarf dilemma shows that individuality is the key. Mix print and texture to express yourself. Her mix and match layering of her scarves here show this week’s Fashionista is not afraid to create. Colours and textures galore, like Marc Jacobs and Alberta Ferretti, her outfit fits the unique bill.

This week’s Fashionista brings it back home to today’s trends by calling up the colour block once more; she works her buckled up satchel bag, which you can find in Monsoon. Her funky toy watch, also a coloured show stopper was picked from her travels in Taiwan.

The key is in the colour. Use it wisely.
