This Week in Fashion: Russian Folk trend

This Week In Fashion we are looking at Russian Folk.  We are loving the Eastern European vibe within this trend, take inspiration from Dolce & Gabanna, Hermes and Carven and mix up the prints, textures and fabrics. Remember more is more, for a sneak peak have a look at these behind the scenes pics!

The first look of the day was the most daring out of the three. These high-waisted Love Label Jacquard Trousers are great for enhancing those curves. I paired them with matching Love Label Jacquard Top and layered with a floral top.

Prints are great for hiding those parts we want to distract attention from, chose a darker item and contrast with a brighter colour for full effect.

These Jameela Jamil shorts are great for showing off those legs. On the day I styled them with a Paisley Print Blouse and Love Label Fur coat to re-create the Russian Folk feel.

Remember wearing print can be good for bigger shapes, wearing a darker colour on top is good for girls with a larger chest.

This look is all about layering, I paired this lovely 18 and East Dress and Slouch Batwing Jumper together.  To finish the look I added the South Brocade Jacket to create a bit of structure and avoid looking shapeless.

To embrace this trend really layer up your look, why wear one piece when you can wear five!?  However, to avoid looking shapeless chose high-waisted trousers or shorts or add a fitted blazer to create shape and define the waist.

To see how the looks can work for you check out the video!
