Chanel’s Cruise 2015/2016 fashion trends are claimed to be heavily influenced by the Korean designs. There was a catwalk show conducted in Seoul last year where collections of Chanel’s Cruise 2015/2016 were presented along a colorful inter-seasonal line. Here are some of the fashion trends which somewhat bring similarities between Chanel’s Cruise 2015/2016 collections and Korean designs:
1. The Jogakbo Tradition – The Patchwork
One of the famous fashion clothing trends is the tradition of Jogakbo or in other words, patchwork. It’s definitely inspired by the Korean culture. Its colorful pattern was presented in Chanel’s Cruise 2015/2016 with an oversized flower button. Celebratory stripes are also used in this dress.
2. The Pink Petal Dress
This show also featured a traditional Hanbok in a highly fashionable and trendy manner. It was a petal and pastel pink dress which also included a black trim. There are also many other dresses which also are inspired from traditional Korean dresses.
It’s a conventional jacket which offers the appearance of an extreme empire waist. It is often worn with the traditional hanbok.
Here are a few more fashion trends of Chanel’s Cruise 2015/2016 from Korean culture:

I was fortunate enough to be invited to the River Island Style Studio Valentine’s Blogger Event which gave me the opportunity to finally experience the Style Studio and I’m sure it won’t be my last.
Never heard of the Style Studio?
Well………Style Studio launched in the London and Birmingham flagship shops and offers personal, one-to-one bespoke styling services from retailer’s stylists for a 30 minute, one-hour or two-hour session giving customers the opportunity to find out about the latest trends and collections to, “discover their individual style.”
The Style Studio personal shopper lounge is a large luxurious space with comfy sofas and great lighting and massive fitting rooms, perfect if you wanted to bring your friends to give you the thumbs up on your outfit (Or hands down) there is even a bar in case you work up a thirst during your styling session or you need some liquid courage.
Oh and I have to mention ‘magic mirror’, this baby allows you see yourself in 360 degrees, compare outfit photos or even take selfies that you can upload to your social media or send to someone to get a 2nd opinion on your outfit.
The Valentines event was absolutely lovely I was able to network with loads of amazing bloggers and we were all treated to prosecco cookies and other nibbles yum!
The stylists picked out outfits for each blogger and we all tried on and strutted our stuff in front of the magic mirror we also played some party games none of which I won and talked to the stylists about the collection.
If you would like to give the Style Studio a whirl you can make an appointment via the website: www.riverisland.com
The 2016 Pantone colors are Rose Quartz and Serenity a soft mix of baby pink and baby blue.
Rose Quartz with its gentle tone conveying compassion and a sense of composure.
Serenity with its calming effect and sense of relaxation. Reminding us to always be mindful and in a constant state of happiness.
The secret to wearing Pantone 2016’s colors is to pair items to make up your own combination of the solid tones, rather than trying to find items with both of these shades in it. This does not mean that, you have to find one piece with both of these colors in it, instead try to mix and match items to create the same effect.
Pair with tailored silhouettes and rich textures to counter balance the delicate hues of sugary sweetness. Fabrics like silk make these two tones look really sophisticated.

New Year, new haircut. For many, a brand new year is the perfect time to update your look, whether that be your work wardrobe, your hair colour or hair style.
Have you ever found yourself looking at a pair of shoes, boots or trainers and thought to yourself I’d love those if the bows were a different colour, in a different place or they had some more detail to them, maybe even more bling?
There's something about the festivities that makes us want to do something special with our wardrobe style. More so for those of us who spend Christmas time celebrating the birth of Christ- the reason for the season!
So, as my custom is, I'm sharing a few 'must - buy' pieces that include both Highstreet high-end and mainstream prices. Rather than break the bank to look good for the special occasion, why not mix it up? It's amazing how styling your wardrobe can really bring out class and elegance - all on a budget!
