Winter Solstice

Today is the shortest day of the year. That means from here on in the days keep getting longer and spring keeps getting closer. So I thought this was the perfect opportunity to start getting excited about the new trends sent down the S/S 2011 catwalks and which ones I'll be sporting in the new year...

First things first, I'm going to be investing in a trench coat to get me through what will more than likely be a rainy spring (my own fault for choosing to live in Leeds...?)



Burberry have once again achieved the sense of effortless elegance and I absolutely love Jaeger's modern take on the classic trench - and isn't the colour just perfect?

Next, I'll be stocking up on the bold, neon block colours - seen on practically every other runway and perfect for making a statement.

Jil Sander

Maria Grachvogel

Layer them one on top of another Jil Sander style or choose one attention demanding shade and make a song and dance about it just like Grachvogel.

My final S/S 2011 tip for today is metallics. They were everywhere, but in my opinion, House of Holland hit all the right notes for me. Metallic pleated mini skirt - how much better can you get?

House of Holland

The perfect way to work the luxe metallic look whilst remaining fun and fresh. Love it. Ahhhh, this was definitely what I needed to help my snow induced style slum. Bring on spring.


  1. colour! I am already starting to miss it this winter.


  2. so excited to wear all these gorgeous spring trends!
