iDeLick Style

Welcome to the first edition of iDeLick Style with a new home right here at Fashions Finest. We've found that with so much happening in the world of fashion, photography, music and technology, it was about time we stopped archiving our excess images never to be seen again. We'll just get them out to you where you can judge for yourself if it's for you or just waive goodbye.

We ask for your comment or just a rating, but most of all we are looking to reach out to you and hopefully bring fortnightly a new page of tempting insight and personalities.

News update

iDeLick Media are pleased to announce they have been nominated for the second year running for a BEFTTA. We would very much like to ask you for your vote and look to have a link here in the very near future post your vote.

As the weather is swiftly changing from Summer to Autumn, Fearne, Holly and Jameela launch their winter wardrobes full of cosy knitwear and glam Christmas dressing for Very.co.uk

FEARNE COTTON:

Mid season sees Fearne designing a sophisticated collection of partywear, with key pieces such as the cowl neck maxi gown, £85. In a vibrant violet colour, this maxi dress features statement embellishment with a subtle vintage twist.

Throughout Fearne's time at Very.co.uk, her collections remain to have an eclectic nod to various decades of time, from the metallic shift dress reminiscent of Debbie Harry,£49, the circle appliqué 60's dress which screams Twiggy,£49 to a sultry red figure hugging Mad Men-esq mini dress, £55.

The faux fur coat encapsulates the different vintage influences by remaining a timeless classic. A garment which has been in style throughout the 20th Century and in to the 21st century. Fearne's addition of large patch pockets and collarless design adds a modern twist to an essential wardrobe staple.

JAMEELA JAMIL:

Jameela Jamil launched her first collection with Very.co.uk back in May, her mid season range is a strong addition to the individual style we saw in Jameela's AW range.

The palette of red, blue, black and cream brings the range of girly prom dresses, and androgynous tailoring into an alternative and edgy way of dressing for Christmas. Her wide leg jumpsuit, £49 is finished of with a quirky dungaree style braces, teamed with her tailored puff sleeve shirt, this is one of the key looks from Jameela's collection.

Keeping the winter season casual and cool, Jameela's range also ticks the boxes with a cobalt blue knitted cropped jumper, £29 and high waisted polka dot shorts, £29.

HOLLY WILLOUGHBY:

Known for her glamorous style, Holly Willoughby's mid season range does not disappoint when it comes to evening wear. Her collection of floor length embellished gowns in luxurious fabrics positions Holly's range at the forefront for opulent Christmas dressing from £89.
For something a little more toned down, Holly's range also showcases more casual day dresses whilst maintaining a strong sense of style. The pleat shoulder pencil dress is cut-to-curve and stands out in a strong teal blue colour,£59 while the floral printed jersey dress is feminine and easy to wear, £39.

Knowles Knows How

'If your hair is wreaking havoc on your neck, I say turban it' tweets Celebrity Stylist June Ambrose (below). Apart from the days that you just want to tuck your hair away, head wraps have become a favourite outfit-booster. Not only stabilising what could have been a hair-do failure; they really do add to an outfit. Solange Knowles has pretty much occupied this truth. She has successfully earned an admirable image in the fashion world, and this may have a lot to do with the way she works those voluminous afros or those past-the-behind braids. Even when style changes with season, we see that Knowles has managed to adapt this special head piece with time. But there is a lot more to this wardrobe article that could easily find in any lost and found pile, or in a heap of old and unwanted clothes. I know that in Nigeria, the presence (and size) of one's 'Gele' or 'Ichafu' (head wrap) reflects your social status. Whilst this may now seem an ancient theory, pride and elegance are qualities that sub-consciously make this piece a bonafide part of both traditional and social dressing in the African Community. Similarly, other societies like America's high fashion in the 60s have explored the power behind these head wraps which have notably been sported by Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn.

It's a myth to believe that this head piece is, or should be locked up away as an old-fashion item. Thanks to the likes of Knowles and Ambrose, a new pattern has been set and the head scarf revived. Its timeless quality may be the reason for its sustained relevance amid the changing seasons of fashion. Gone are the days where head scarves amongst the African community are only pulled out for religious reasons and celebration events. They have now been moulded into fashion's flexible characteristics of street, urban, retro chic and much more. Did I mention its economically viable? I don't know how many wardrobe pieces can maintain its flavour and remain conveniently accessible to all like that of the head wrap. Maybe its because its a hand-styled item (now as a turban) and so can adapt to any fashion rhythm. It has moved from the traditional borders of Africa, to the shores of high fashion. Check out Miss Knowles working fashion's favourite hair piece, in all different shapes and sizes.

For her head wrap she wears a silk scarf by Louis Vuitton. There is something both captivating yet liberating about this piece; the silk touch and heavily adorned neck suggests royalty, while the over-sized denim jacket and cut-out t-shirt gives a rugged and urban feel to the outfit. Simply, the LV head piece has been a main transformer tool for this shoot.

The head-band style is especially good for those grown-out-braids days when you want to keep those roots under cover.

Nothing says Afro-queen better than bold, long braids and a beautifully fitted ankara head piece. It also has a bohemian feel to it. (Sources naughtsnotcrosses).

I love this retro-like piece. A colourful head piece can sometimes replace the need for an over-done jewellery set or hand-bag choice.

Don't be afraid to mix your elegant outfit and heels, with a boyish rugged look. This bandanna looking piece won me over with the leopard print details. This season, with print, you win!

If you don't have a head mannequin to use, I suggest practising head scarf tying on a willing friend. There are many ways to tie a head-scarf and practising is a great way to master your own technique. If you are completely lost, simply google ideas for styling with head scarves.
