AW16 Trend Series – Granny’s Attic

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

I think it’s safe to say that it’s 100% autumn now! The leaves are turning orange and I can see my breath in the mornings so I wanted to take a look at 3 of the fashion trends that are going to be pretty big this Autumn/Winter. Obviously this is a trend series so it’ll be based on the looks that were on the designer catwalks, but I always believe in styling yourself how you want to and this is just a rough guide of how I would wear some of the pieces from each trend. Of course you can always just pick one or two items and mix it with your own style to create a fresh new season look.

The trend I’m going to look at today is ‘Granny’s Attic’, it’s basically a mix of textures and colours to create a vintage twist on a modern outfit. Lots of the textures include ruffles, velvet, embroidery and sequins and this trend was spotted on the catwalks of Gucci, Miu Miu and Christopher Kane.

I loved styling this look as I do like to wear some unusual and eclectic pieces. Like I said earlier rather than wearing a lot of the pieces together like I have to give you a feel of the trend, you could take the boots, bag or the top etc and add it alongside some of the items you already have in your wardrobe and it’ll give it an AW16 fashion boost!

Hi Everyone,

I am such a fan of statement accessories and there is nothing more statement than this handbag! I spotted it online and had to get it straight away. I know it’s quite a bright colour and I wasn’t sure how to style it, but I felt that I wanted a basic outfit in black and this incredible bomber jacket with all the patches to pull it together.

The bag is pretty huge, it fits so much in it and it’s so soft. There’s also a black version which I’ll link below, that might be more appropriate if you don’t like bright colours as much as me!

Jacket – Primark

Leggings – New Look
Boots – New Look

A Year as FashionBelle

Hi Everyone!

So my blog hit one year old on 23rd September and I can’t believe it, it’s gone so quickly!

When I started my blog, I wanted to inspire both disabled and able bodied people to be who they want to be and to style themselves in anyway they want. I had never let my disability get in the way of my love of fashion and beauty and I wanted to show other disabled people that their disability didn’t need to stop them from standing out in their own unique way.

Honestly a year down the line, when I look back, I thought I’d have more than a thousand instagram followers and hundreds of views on my blog each day; but it doesn’t work like that.. I’ve learnt that I will get nowhere without hard work and determination and that if I continue to do this, then it will pay off eventually!

I enjoy what I do so much, I love writing my blog even though some days after work I just want to chill and do nothing! But my passion is fashion and beauty and I’m so pleased that I have this platform to share it with everyone!

I’ve got so much planned for the future of FashionBelle, but if there are any posts etc that you’d love to see, products you’d like me to review etc, then please let me know in the comments and I would really appreciate it!
