Hello, and welcome to The Met Online’s fashion corner. My name is Chloe Aristodemou and I will be bringing you the new trends around Leeds and on campus.
This Spring/Summer wardrobe statement pieces;
Spotted in the D&G Spring/Summer collection 2012 at Milan Fashion Week. This upcoming season is all about the animal prints. Whether it’s a pair of killer heels, flat ballet pumps or a faux fur jacket, there must be some leopard print injected into your wardrobes.
But if Prada is a bit over your student budget don’t worry, you can bag any of these leopard pieces in most of the high street shops in Leeds.
This Warehouse cup sleeve shift dress is perfect for most occasions; an evening meal, drinks with friends or even a trip into town.
Style tip: Try pairing with a black blazer and shoe boots for a more sophisticated look, or jazz it up with a pair of chunky black boots for casual day time attire.
For a night out try something like this strapless Lipsy dress. Keep the shoes simple as the dress is very busy. Pair with sued black stilettos.
The less daring can try something a little bit more subtle. A scarf or headband are the perfect accessories for quirking up your everyday outfit, or try pair of ballet pumps with jeans.
The Crochet Waistcoat
Another Popular item on the catwalks this Fall is the crochet waistcoat. An Easy clothing accessory to quirk up any outfit adding a bohemian touch. With a variety of different colours and patterns, there is plenty to choose from. Be the first to nab one of these statement waistcoats from any of the high street shops, River Island, New look, Next or Dorothy Perkins.
For tassel loving fashionistas try this one from Dorothy Perkins.
If tassels aren’t really you’re thing, try a simple pattern from River Island
Style tip: Wear with a black maxi dress or block colours, to show of the pattern. Finish the look will a trilby hat for that bohemian touch, or rock it up with a blouse and denim shorts pairing with heeled shoe boots for a night time feel. For a more casual uni outfit wear with jeans and a slouchy vest top.
