One thing I love after coming home from my travels is coming home to packages of things I ordered whilst away. I entered my room to find a big box from Eastpak containing my one off backpack from their Artist Studio collection where they collaborated with creatives from 14 different countries to project their vision on to the classic Eastpak back pack with sales going towards the Designers Against Aids charity organisation. My favourite blogger Ivania Carpio created this beautiful minimalist backpack by removing the front pocket and placing it inside the bag then adding a clear perspex back. Ivania concept for the bag was amazing as she wanted "it to be about exposure and concealment, help with the disease of aids in mind which is often an invisible problem" and I feel that this bag embodied her vision perfectly.

The purchase came with a beautiful book 'Designers Against Aids' which I can't wait to read through properly... check out all of the Eastpak back packs here and Ivania Carpio's blog, unhealthy Love Aesthetics.

With the sales in full swing from midnight on boxing day and shopping centres such as Stratford Westfield over flowing with people trying to grab a bargain, medicine visit this site I decided to do all my shopping online. There were so many good pieces on sale that I decided to divide my favourites into the current and future trends- just because it is in the sale doesn’t mean it cant be a key piece to your wardrobe next season. Liquid Metal Metallics.

rih metallic

Metallic pieces are perfect for the winter to add a bit of life to any look and were seen all over the runways by designers such as Christopher Kane and Whistles. I loved Rihanna in her metallic silver skirt as she proved that the liquid metal look needn’t be tacky or too much; the key is balancing your look with deep, rich colours such as navy and camel or keeping it clean and classic with black or white. I ordered the bronze vest from topshop below which I would wear with navy or white and minimal accessories. I love the sleeveless bomber too which would look great on top of a slouchy black jumper or sweater.

Play with proportions

I always talk about playing with proportions when it comes to winter fashion because, lets face it, wearing jumpers everyday gets boring. I love the idea of wearing a crop top in winter with a long winter coat and maybe some high waisted trousers or jeans (or tracksuit bottoms for me) as it breaks up the monotony of your usual winter get up. If you have a super warm coat and thick scarf, showing a bit of your midriff is playful and fun- my favourite is the bright blue number from Topshop which I ordered on boxing day. These winter crops are perfect as the transcend from winter to spring perfectly- all you need to do is take of a layer or two.

Kanye-and-Kim-in-wool-coatsMaybe I’m biased but I feel like Kanye and Kim have really help spur on the over sized coat trend with Kanye frequently wearing his H&M x Margiela Camel coat and Kim following suit in a some amazing statement coats too. Winter coats don’t have to be boring puffer jackets to keep you warm; wool is very warm too and looks sophisticated as well as coming in an array of cuts and colours.
