Made In Chelsea Style!

 Yesterday, I was having lunch near my school, and what do I see? The Made In Chelsea cast! Now, honestly, I don't watch this show but each time I see the adverts I find myself drooling over their outfits! A very chic street style. 

On Polyvore
 Well, I got the chance to see them in real life and it got me very inspired for this post.

- Lucy Watson: She looks like a top model in an advert for DKNY in my shot! Her outfit is my favourite. To get the look, you need a leopard-printed blouse, a pair of black cloth shorts, very opaque tights, and the very fashionable black ankle chunky-heeled boots! Then over this beautiful ensemble add a long classy coat. Any colour will do!
- Millie Mackintosh: You can barely see her in the picture but she was wearing a white turtle neck with a blazer, slim black skirt, opaque tights, too, and quite elegant ankle boots. Her bag caught my eye. It was one of those very nice Celine bags.
- Louise Thompson: I thought her outfit was very interesting. She was wearing a black turtle neck pullover over an abstract dress. She, too, had the opaque tights (start of a new trend?). Her black ankle boots are very grungy, though. And, of course the unique Dior bag! I love her choice of colours. They work so well together.

T̶h̶e̶ ̶R̶e̶t̶u̶r̶n̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶T̶h̶e̶ ̶S̶t̶r̶i̶p̶e̶s̶

 It all started with Robin Thicke's classic striped suit and Kate Middleton's casual navy sweater. After these two went out wearing those garments, an army of striped people came tumbling into the streets. Many of whom had grabbed their old striped-up top, from the huge trend that had taken place three years ago. And I am one of those little people except I thought my stripes were quite different... My top is almost knitted-like! I love wearing this for chilly days, because you just need a tank top under (I have one of those Uni-Qlo tank tops for winter) and it's very light. And if the day really gets cold, add on a jumper! You don't see much in details how it looks like... It's pretty much a knitted, striped T-shirt! I think this quite an original design from Topshop.

The Lipstick Trend ✍

At the New York Fashion Week, this one makeup trend stood out from the others. The theme being: keep the eye naked but the lips highly pigmented! I loved it. It's such a fresh look and it's so simple! My two favourites were the following:

1) Make it POP!

This trend's been used so many times before: You must've seen with Rita Ora's classic ruby lipstick. It's been used by Alexa Chung, too, who says that this is a perfect technique to hide your sleepy eyes. The novelty, as said before, is to keep the rest of your face neutral. Your eyes have to be literally naked. I think the best in this category was Diane von Furstenberg with Cara Delevingne. She [Cara] was also rocking this look with other brands such as Marc Jacobs.

2) Wine Coloured Lips 

This one's so soft and velvety. This trend appeared a tiny bit in 2012 but didn't seem as big as this year. Dark lipstick doesn't suit me much anyway and I honestly wouldn't be brave enough to try it out but it's nevertheless a nice look. I couldn't find which brand was doing the makeup in the picture above for the fall/winter 2013 Fashion Week, though (maybe Derek Lam). 
Vera Wang went for a similar dark-lipped-models style, too, except in a redder version. The theme? Vampires. Reminds me of Twilight. ^^
So which trend do you prefer? What do you think about this trend? Would you take a shot at it? 
I must say that my real coup de coeur was the 'make it POP' one...

P.S.: I must inform you that this blog will be weekly from now on because I am going back to school! Wish me luck!
