With winter fast approaching, I’d love to touch base on some of my favorite A/W18 trends which have caught my eye. These trends are simple enough to pull off, and include  accessible pieces you can play around with to suit any occasion, from your day to evening looks. 

The Beret

The beret and poor-boy cap have been my favorites for about 8yrs already. My gran was the very first person to introduce them to me as a practical and ready to wear accessory. The beret is somewhat a more chic alternative to the beanie and always gives your look a bit of a facelift. You can play around with varying colors and textures for the desired feeling/effect you’re going for. At times, I tuck some of my hair away when wearing a beret. And on such days, I have to wear statement stud earrings. On other days, I wear a pair of hoop earrings when I’m on my poetic justice (braided).

For this specific look, a pink beret was the order of the day as I pulled off the monotone trend. Yup, head to toe in my pink suit from Fabrosanz – Pink is power after all! 

Beautiful & Powerful

Since the days of Princess Diana, power dressing has transformed with the times and yet always remains relevant. The magic has always been in the way the pieces are tailored, bold with a feminine touch. There’s literally a suitable piece for every woman no matter their shape, size and personal style.

Beauty:

On the beauty side of things, the perfect face for me is a natural look, with some highlight and of course a red Lippie. I only ever enjoy a full face of bold make-up for shoots as those mediums require a bit of drama every now and again. But on a day to day look, my current fav lipstick is the red (Besame) lipstick from Inglot for a pop of color, and the Lip Glossy from the #JLOxINGLOT collab. Don’t underestimate the power of lip liner and a yummy gloss!
