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!!
