February Styling fix with SJ.

'The fashionable woman wears clothes. The clothes don't wear her.' - Mary Quant.

The cold and bitter weather is not something that can hold a fashionable woman back. Coats, Hats and Scarfs tend to hide our figures and our amazing outfit underneath, but it is still possible to "rip the runway" in a snug coat and some cosy boots. Turtle necks, knitted jumpers and thigh-high boots are some of the latest trends this winter. Warm toned colours such as Brown, Gold and Camel are safe but oh so gorgeous colours to wear this year. So whether you are out for drinks in the evening, en route to work or shopping with your friends, my style board for this month will have heads turning when you enter the room! Remember that everything on this board can be purchased. Feel free to comment below!

Trendy Trends:
A Tassel is known for being a finishing feature in fabric decoration. Its versions vary in many different cultures around the world. For some cultures like in the Middle East, Tassels on hats were worn as a tradition for spiritual reasons. In other cultures the Tassel on hats symbolised ones prestigious status.

Popular in Europe – especially France, the style of the Tassel has changed over the years. Very often you would find Tassels on the end of scarfs, on shoes, clothing and even drapery. The trend has been around for some years but the Tassels are back in fashion this period, but on our bags! Whether the Tassels skirt is sown across the back or attached by a cord, you are sure to be in fashion this season.
Tassels on clothing have been worn by many celebrities last year, with the likes of Kim Kardashian and the Serbian pop singer, Jelena Karleusa Tosic. Just the simple addition of a Tassel can give any accessory or clothing the perfect finish. The Tassel is so versatile and can be a great addition to almost anything, giving even the most basic item a vibrant look. Below are Seven of my favourite Tassel bags this season, be sure to get yours!

January Styling Fix With SJ

Fashions fade, style is eternal.' - Yves Saint Laurent.

I find pleasure in helping my friends and family pick their outfits, for first dates, parties or for their birthday celebrations. I spend some of my most of tedious days browsing the web admiring some of my favourite Fashion icons.

I encourage anyone to express their eccentricities through their sense of style and to simply look at Fashion as a form of Art. So with that being said, check out my first two Fashion Style Boards that I have created on Polyvore.com! Feel free to visit the website and look at some more of my boards, all of the items I choose from my board can be purchased. Comment below and let me know what you think!
