During the last few years, the jumpsuit has become a fashion must-have. But loved as it is by designers and celebrities, would you believe this key style statement has already been around for almost a century.
When Kate Moss designed a jumpsuit for her collection with Topshop a few years ago, they became one of the hottest trends to hit the high street in years. Comfortable and chic, jumpsuits can look good on almost any body type. Now they are a hit on the red carpet and changing the game of red carpet style and fashion.
Believe it or not, the jumpsuit’s origins don’t belong to the world of high fashion at all. In fact, they were originally designed as a work garment. During the early 20th century, military pilots who would strap parachute packs to their backs first wore the jumpsuit.
Im loving the jumpsuit and will make sure it is a staple piece in my summer wardrobe. Check out some of my choice favs. You can find these on many online stores.
Love this S/S Cavalli satchel handbag. This cute little dazzler will work with any outfit. Its thick shoulder strap chain looks chic and classic. I love the heavy weight of the chain strap you can feel the fabulous quality of the materials of this bag. It gives you an elegant feel. Its Art Deco chic 😉
Following the splash of The Great Gatspy there is a surge in all things 1920s glam. About time I say. Here here. I have alway had a strong liking to the roaring 20s and been fascinated by its culture. It was a revaluation. A break for freedom. Everything seemed to change in that era. Skirts got shorter, parties got wilder, women got more daring, men got rich, the drink got plentiful and the music got louder. Everything got glamafied and people seemed to party their money and cares away.It would have been some time to be around.
It was an era of speak easy excess, debauchery and big business in Hollywood. It would have been some spectacle to have been a fly on the wall.
The fashion of that era was extraordinary. Dresses had a swing and were worn heavy with beads and sequence,. Stunning pieces were worn by all. Right now the high streets are offering a glimpse in to the fashion world of that time. I have put together some original circa 1920s items for you to take a look at. When you go shopping you can take an original idea or item and create your own way of styling it. Check out some of these stunning pieces. Enjoy and hope you find some fabulous 1920s inspired fashion.
So I reckon all the celeb stylists got together and said “Let punk the bitches!” I have alway had a weakness for punk and all its style now, to wake in the morning and find all the best and sexiest celebs in the world after my own heart. Im just jealous it wasn’t me sashaying down the red carpet first punked up to the nines.
Check out some of these stunning creations. I have picked my favourite gowns (the ones I wish I was wearing) and put them here for you my fashionAnts, to feast your desires upon.
Simple, sexy and elegant without trying to hard. Nice. Cara in Thakoon
Sienna looks a little lost in this, kinda like she thought she was killing it with the jacket then realised that everyone had out did her. Love the jacket not gone on that Burberry dress. Looks slightly to big and plain on her.
I love D&G but not this one…Next.
This is a dress you can wear all year round. Its interesting and gives a mystique to Karlie Kloss. Louis Vuttion
Fnky day to elegant night.
Very David Bowie I reckon. Looks like high fashion 80s more than punk but looks good anyhow. Anthony Vaccarello
Fantastic…! Why not!!? Love it! The Louis Vuitton boots look incredible and the Giles Deacon dress is spectacular although I think the Philip Treacy headpiece is a little young for her! Gem!
Nina looks great in this Altuzarra and Monique Lhullier. It reminds me a little of 80s Madonna, when she was cool. Wish she would stop trying.
Anne Hathaway looks fantastic in this shear Valentino gown. Cropped spiky blonde suits her. It was a total and much a warranted removal from the sweet feminine side we are so bored of seeing. She rocks this and her boobs look great!
Bodylishious in Mary Katrantzou
This looks like it would be suited in Ibiza. Maybe Jessica brought the wrong luggage. Diane von Furstenburg
Looks like a Tim Burton rag doll. Lilly Coles a bit of a wash out in Vivienne Westwood
This is a sultry colour you dont see to often on the red carpet. Minka Kelly wares it well in Carolina Herrera
Poor P. Alway the Puppet. Michael Cinco
Stunning! Sleek, understatedly sexy. Glamorous Gucci.Great choice for her.
Proper party dress. Gisele in Diane von Furstenburg
This looks funky and elegant. I like the match Wes Gordon
Lopez knows how to pop a pose for the papz! She looks ravishing in one of my fav designers Michael Kors.
Again the cropped, spiked blonde looks great. Milley is one of the youngest on the red carpet. She could have gotten away with what Madonna wore and Madona SHOULD have worn this Marc Jacobs! Perfect mis swap!
Miranda Kir in Michael Kors. She has the body to pull it off beautifully.
Poison Ivy by name Poison Ivy by nature. Uma Thurman looks radiant in Diane Von Furstenburg
Plain redonklous. Sorry Madge. Take a leaf out of Milley’s book.
Good old D. Toning it down for once. She looks sophisticated.
On fire in Givenchy. Love the classic gold detail.
I love how chic this look is. Its mature and classy with a business woman approach that could be work day time. Ivanka Trump looks every inch the business lady in this Juan Carlos Obando dress.
I like a bit of unique styling and people brave enough to wear these creations down the street. You probably will see some high flyers doing just that at London’s Fashion Week. These amazing designs are by none other than Peter Pilotto. Peters crazy creations span from his background of half-Austrian, half-Italian, coming form such a colourful background I think helps gives his vision zest. His intention: womenswear embraces both new and classic perspectives on elegance. Otherworldly prints combine with soft, sculptural shapes. I think these outfits would look awesome at a festival 🙂
Check out this link. This looks so unbelievably simple even Im going to try this. How to make your own dress in 8 easy steps.
