Steal her Festival Style: Lauren Conrad Coachella

Coachella finished up about a week ago and now all anyone can talk about is Splendour in the Grass. Like Coachella, Splendour is a three day festival full of music, drinking, food and art. So what’s the most important thing, besides from purchasing a ticket? That’s right, what to wear. I have chosen to take three looks from Lauren Conrad’s Coachella style that you could emulate and all for a very reasonable price!

Day 1.

This is a very simple look, very comfortable, and probably the best ensumble for your biggest day roughing the crowds.

So much to look forward to this Autumn

Summer is almost over, but don’t fret, there is a lot to look forward to in fashion this autumn. From hats to tights, dresses to jeans, you will love what is in store. I have been overseas for the past three weeks [hence there not being any posts] and walking around the shops, it was to my surprise how many great items I have found and what looks seem to be trending for autumn 2012.

While pursuing my retail research I have seen a lot of use of colour. In the way of, plumb, blue, mustard, grey and black. I have also seen a lot of velvet used in clothes and shoes, felt, and fur [faux of course]. So here is a brief outline of what to expect this coming season.

Skirts

Expect to see a lot of pencil and tube skirts. These skirts come in a range of autumn colours like blue and mustard. These skirts are not just for the office. Wear them day to day with a cute knitted sweater or a loose fitted blouse.

 

 

 

 

 

Coats

Coloured coats are a great for those cooler nights in autumn. Coming in a range of colours like red, mustard and black. These coats are seen in wool and felt. Faux fur coats are also back this year but also available in some great colours like green and blue.

 

 

 

 

 

Jeans

Everyone needs a pair of jeans in autumn. But there is no need to stick to the plain blue, be adventurous there are plenty of colours to choose from. From deep reds, pinks and dark greens. These jeans will brighten up those autumn days.

 

 

 

 

 

Leggings

Brightly coloured and patterned leggings are going to be big this coming season. And it is always great to have a pair of leggings for those more relaxed occasions or god forbid those fat days… Leggings are great with an oversized plain top and a scarf if it is bit chilly.

 

 

 

 

 

Dresses

It’s a more relaxed approach to dresses this autumn. I have seen a lot of block coloured shift dresses as well as a few lace cut out dresses.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sweaters

There are a lot of sweaters/jumpers in store for autumn. Knitted, fancy designs, colourful and very cosie. A great staple for an autumn wardrobe!

 

 

 

 

 

Moving on to accessories…

Jewlery

Big chunky metal, what I call cuff necklaces [because they remind me of the cuffs you wear on your arm]. Coming in rose gold and metallic. As well as cuff bangles and chunky metal rings.

 

 

 

 

 

Bags

Satchels look like they are here to stay. Available in some fantastic autumn colours.

 

 

 

 

 

Shoes, Belts and Hats

In the way of shoes I have seen a lot of velvet coloured heels in plumb, black, brown and green with block heels and a bit of a platform. Ankle boots are also looking to be a bit of a trend with a kind of a country vibe to them.

Seen a lot on the red carpet at the SAG awards this year is the warrior belt. Coming in sliver, gold and rose gold. I have also seen a lot of skinny belts in multiple colours.

I have so many hats and I added to my collection today… The panama is making a huge come back this season. Available is many of the fantastic autumn colours also.

Tights

A good pair of tights can last you years. This autumn tights are in a range of colours from red to blue. Pattered tights are also back, with some great designs to choose from.

 

So prepare to break the bank [again] this autumn. With all these amazing pieces, how could you not.

Put a hat on!

The perfect accessory for you head is, a hat. Hats are great for those hot summer days out and about and there are many different styles available, and for a reasonable price. So protect your face from the harsh sun rays this summer, and get a great hat to complement your outfit.

Here are four great styles suitable for summer.

1. The Wide Floppy Hat

This hat is great for a day at the beach or just out and about. Try this same style in a felt material for a more autumn or winter look. This style also comes in many different colours, so why not be brave and flaunt a bright colour.

2. The Panama

I use to have to wear a panama hat to school each day [and I hated it] now it is very in style. This hat is great for day to night and can be worn on any occasion.

3. The Trilby

This hat is fantastic for summer, especially those summer festivals. It is simple, and can go with any day time summer outfit. You can even put a scarf around the top of the brim to accessories further.

4. The Bowler

This is another great hat that can take you from day to night. For a day time look pair with a some shorts and a designer tee and at night pair with a great skater dress.
