Fashion Folk

This season is all about everything folk fashion, from swinging 60’s bell sleeves to flowing flower power dresses, it is all about vintage inspired style. Burberry Prorsum presented warm, autumn tones on long folk dresses and ponchos while Chloe showed off the 70’s bell sleeve on tailored jackets and coats, Lanvin however updated the 70’s trend with sequins and fur but maintained the classic hippy look with loose fitting styles. But of course many of us can’t afford the designer brands that lead these trends in the world of fashion and so I have found some cheaper alternatives off the high street and online!

Missguided £25 Bell sleeve woven croptop in white 

This is a great look for any end of summer festival or holidays and it is simple to incorporate into an outfit. Either take inspiration from Missguided with a fringed suede skirt and shades or maybe go proper hippy chick with flared patterned trousers and some platform heels.

ASOS £21.00 (ON SALE) textured peg trousers in mixed folk print 

these peg trousers are a great way to add a bit of folk style into the office as you could pair these print comfy slouch pants with an oversized blazer and T-shirt for a relaxed work look or perfect for strolling along the beach in the evening with a simple crop and some gold accessories and sandals.

Topshop £59.00 Chiffon maxi dress by Oh My Love

This is an absolutely gorgeous dress with floral patterning and dramatic chiffon material which will help you make an entrance to any summer party. With the flowing material the dress would look amazing with lace up the leg sandals or for something a bit more dressy, chunky heels. But beware not to loose length off the dress with heels as it could turn it into an ankle swinging cut…not a good look!

River Island £68.00 Brown Faux Fur Gilet 

This trend is a must for AW15 style as fur coats, gilets and accessories have been seen all over the catwalks this year and so it may be time to invest in a staple faux fur piece for your wardrobe. This gilet reminds me of a coat seen on the AW15 Valentino runway and would look amazing with a similar outfit seen on the catwalk. Pair the jacket with flared black trousers and a high neck cream tucked in blouse and boots for an ultra cool city style with a folk twist.
