Lone Star

It’s not Dallas. It’s not Texas. It’s wherever you want it to be, and there’s no doubt there’s West on the mind…
Western elements have recently been popping up in unexpected ways both on the catwalk and off, and at the recent shows there was the Urban Cowboy trend rising up on the street in Western boots, embroidered shirts and low-slung belts. Keep the look relaxed and effortless in slouchy denims, print tees, leather jackets and boots. For a sexier interpretation of the trend, layer Western elements with femme fatale ones like sparkles, fitted leather or satin.West_8

The only way is all-in-one

I think I may finally be ready to embrace the jumpsuit of sorts. I’ve seen some goodie’s around now and I think I’m ready.
Season after season, I have looked at others wearing these, and the majority of the time I’ve thought they looked a little try-hard, or much too young for the wearer. But the ‘onesie’ is all grown-up now. It’s been fine-tuned and beautifully tailored and produced in clean-cut shapes and in quality fabrics by designers, rather than the abundance of printed polyester flooding of the chain stores. Amen.

It’s no secret that the jumpsuit has a reputation for being hard to wear. And a downright pain-in-the-ass to tackle when the loo calls. But there’s also no denying that the trend was not just a fad, this one’s sticking around for the long run. It’s surprising how versatile they can be; good for weekend lunch dates, jazzed up for night, weddings etc. We’ve seen them done well loads of times on the red carpet, some with success- (Gwyneth is a fan and wears them really well, as does Anja Rubik. Miley Cyrus likes to give one a whirl regularly) and some with not so much flattering success. My go with the jumpsuit is to keep it minimalist- they just look so much better when there’s little accessorising, and when they’re not too roomy or too tight. A tricky shape like the Gucci Resort combined wrap torso, fastened waist and pyjama pant-style base can prove to be a mess if it’s not on the right height. So take precaution and keep it simple.

I’ve included below some of my favourite’s from Resort 14, plus an admired Giambattista Valli style from Spring 13.
