FashionTag Gets Up Close & Personal With Moda In Pelle Shoes! Meet The Brand & Stay Tuned For Special Feature This Week!

Every once in a while FashionTag meets up with a brand or an artist we love and decides to let you all know about the amazing discovery and meeting that took place. For a while now, we’ve been chatting with the fabulous UK retailer Moda In Pelle, exploring the brand’s fantastic shoes and bags, and we decided to feature Moda In Pelle this week on FashionTag, with a post on how this brand sees the shoes & boots trend in 2012/2013 Fall – Winter. What would a big brand and retailer recommend us to wear and how? Well… we’ll just have to wait and see. Moda In Pelle is the kind of brand that addresses all women, so it may come as no surprise that you will see their designs on celebrities as well as the girl next door. It has a bit of it all and what I love about their…

Leather Takes Over Autumn Winter 2012-2013! S&M Trend?

Have we all gone mad with the Fifty Shades Of Grey bestseller? Or do designers long for those grunge looks of the past? Whatever the case one thing is certain. In 2012-2013 Autumn & Winter we are all plunging into a Gothic glamour and elegance and giving in to obsessive looks of Bad Girls. Collections from the most classic designers took this S&M road, with leather trousers, jackets, straps, belts, gloves. But to make it more actual and fun we’re not just sticking to the all time black. No ladies, it’s colored leather all the way, from the deepest to the most electric tones of red, orange, calm nudes, greens or purples. If you fancy the retro look – DSquared nailed their 2012-2013 Fall/Winter collection with amazing colorful looks that make eyes pop. All silhouettes are a bit more oversized and if one might think that baggy leather trousers are a No No, well think…

‘Fur Russia With Love!’ – Russia Fashion Trend For 2012/2013 Fall/Winter!

Ice cutting wind that makes Russian aristocratic ladies’ cheeks blush with color under luxurious furs that, alongside pearl necklaces and earrings adorn these far-in-times tormented beauties of the 19th century – is the picture my mind travels to, with this season’s fashion trend. A crowded 1870’s Moscow or St. Peterspurg railway station with trains that seem more like chariots under the blistering cold, with aristocratic ladies that make their way through journeys in heavy expensive clothes… it’s Russia at its best. Romantic Russian Imperialism with its fine fashion & style. When Temperley London presented her 2012/2013 Fall-Winter collection, she gave a away on a lot of what we shall indulge in this winter, and predicted what Anna Karenina Film was about to stir, fashion wise. A return to the mid 19th century Russian opulence and exquisite elegance. A collection that makes you wish for freezing whether just to wear fur hats…

Fashion Gets Military With Army Jackets!

With all the trends swirling around us like crazy there seems to be a general movement that makes it all happen. Style Clashing is the big thing now that embodies it all: from prints to chunky jewellery to lace, to evening skirts and heavy boots. If the ’80s were all about broad shoulders, bad make-up and big hair and the ’90s about grunge, the 2000s are about clashing styles. Wear your snickers with a feminine fancy dress, or your boots with an evening gown. Wear delicate pieces with heavy metal chunky jewellery. In this new fashion revolution the Army Jacket takes a comfortable position and announces its huge comeback for Autumn 2012. The Army Jacket was quite a big hit in the ’90s (I remember fighting with my brother over an old/vintage army coat that must’ve belonged to our father) and then Olivia Palermo was rocking it on the…

2012 Skirt Trend. Pleats Please!

Ladies 2012 is the year of  The Pleated Skirts! Short, maxi, tea length, nude, colored, printed – with flats, boots or heels they make any woman look feminine & chic. Oh… and a bit retro. And we love it! Last autumn the designers’ collections had their share of pleats, and I thought what a cool trend for the cold days. Feminine and sexy in the middle of the cold blizzard. But the pleats were such a huge hit that the trend stuck with us throughout the four seasons and here we are in 2012 Summer still choosing the maxi or short pleated skirt for those hot days in the sun. Silky & flowy, sweeping the floor or just hiding our bum the pleated skirt is turning into a wardrobe staple. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Ashley Tisdale, Rihanna, Diana Agron, Diane Kruger, Kate Bosworth rock this look on…

The Sneakers. A ’90s Inspired Fashion Trend

A while ago I made a post on the ’90s fashion revival, with a bit of insecurity to be honest with you, as I thought I may have not spotted a trend, but more of a fad… Well seems to me the ’90s fashion inspired looks are here to stay. From the High Street to the runways- with the sneakers comeback – we are witnessing a dip in the grunge-cool era of fashion. It’s as if we’re all a bit to tired of the studied, clean, safe looks and just want to feel free, cool, experiment and not give a damn about the rules. Kitsch looks, grunge-sporty outfits and un-styled styles are becoming quite refreshing fashion trends. Apart from the washed out jeans, the denim jackets, the flannel, the boots – the ’90s revival in 2012 summer seems to be all about being sexy, comfortable & a…

Topshop Skirts Crush. Mid-Calf, Maxi & Dip Back

To continue my best buys and clothes crushes posts, I thought of sharing with you some of my favourite skirts at Topshop. Yes, again the edgy cool brand is featured on FashionTag simply because in my opinion it does bring some cool fashion original stuff on the high street. Following the season trends it somehow manages to bring and emphasize a lot its own vibe and pun a twist on all ‘trendy’ trends out there. Since summer is here (well theoretically ’cause London seems to be part of another hemisphere)  we’ll all go crazy for skirts. What to pick, which ones to wear? How to be trendy but keep it original? How to look unique with all uniform high street clothes? Easy… mix and match  & clash styles. Right now I have a bit of a crush on knee length and maxi skirts! They can be…

H&M Summer Look

When summer is just around the corner, all women seem to care about is how they look and what they wear. We ditch our thick annoying sweaters, trousers, socks for flip flops, flirty dresses, colored shoes, bags, sunglasses. We make it a day with our girlfriends at shopping and end it victoriously (richer in buys, poorer in money) over a cup of coffee and a few cakes, why not? One of the very famous high street bands, and one of my personal favourites has always got some great stuff for any pocket, situation, figure, style or taste. How to get an H&M 2012 Summer Look? For today I had in mind a flirty, feminine look: beige dress (flared, knee-length cotton dress with a wide elasticated drawstring waist) with a blazer in black or blue, or a denim jacket for a more relaxed look, worn with sandals, wedges…

Spring/Summer 2012 Trend Report. Statement Trousers

As we go further into spring/summer days I come to realize it’s finally alright to go a bit mad, over the top, crazy and as original as we can with out daily outfits. And why not. I did say fashion is a way of self expression after all right?  With this in mind I am quite pleased to see a new tend being born.  The streets, fashion magazines & stores are packed with printed trousers, leopard leggings, brights, wide legged, harem or skinny ones… It’s the time of The Statement Trousers! The wildest the better! The more it stands out the more you have done a better job dressing up. It’s about style, standing out, telling a story, being different… Spring Summer 2012 Collections was packed with  statement trousers! Catwalks were flooded with prints of all sorts, brights that hurt the eyes and one of a kind designs. From Dolce & Gabanna…
