Let's Get Wild!!


Now that I've got your attention.

This season expect to see any glamorous and fashion-conscious lady prowling in what Vogue has stated as "Afrocentric" style. That means vibrant geometric, sharp patterns, ethnic, eccentric, edgey jewellery and the most gorgeous skins around!

L-R- Holly Fulton, Just Cavallli, Roberto Cavalli, Roberto Cavalli. Below images from ASOS and River Island. None of these images belong to me :)

I love this look especially Roberto Cavalli's blazer and waistcoat. I've also selected some things from the high street that certainly reflect the Afrocentric look. I am really liking the animal print Kaftan from ASOS with the fringing, very on trend! and this skater skirt from River Island will cinch in at your waist which is perfect considering this S/S12 is all about the figure-shaping design!

Also on the afrocentric agenda is the safari look. If you're not being the hunted you are the hunter as you can see from these awesome items I've picked out!
L-R- Loewe, Just Cavalli, Michael Kors, Laurel. These images do not belong to me! =]

In contrast with the wild patterns and designs that make up the Afrocentric trend, the clean lines and neutral colours of the safari theme are just as fab. I am loving this shirt dress from www.riverisland.com and this fedora hat from www.topshop.com. I will definitely be purchasing these items. Also this jacket from www.marksandspencer.com I think really has an authentic outdoors African safari feel to it.

So whether you want to be hunted or be the hunter this season, there's a look for everyone!

Sorry I didn't post anything yesterday I was taking a break and I'm heading out tonight with the girls so I'll hopefully have another post up tomorrow. 
Until then my fashion lovers!!


  1. oo what would I do with out animal prints! Love this post

  2. Yeah I totally agree with you. this year is more of patterns and bright colors. I`m more on ethnic style and edgy accessories but animal print is not bad i feel like trying it soon.


  3. Yeah I have always loved the animal prints but personally I have never been brave enough to wear them. I think they need to be worn with the right accessories. I think I may try them out this season, haven't bought anything yet but I'm really liking the safari look, I got a trilby hat which is awesome! =p

    p.s someone has recommended that I change my name and I think they're right, so if you've got any ideas I'll gladly hear them and I'll advertise your blog on my blog if I choose your idea! =] I know it's not that great advertising on my blog but just as a little thank you =]
