How To Wear… Little Booties with Little Dresses

A week or so ago I posted about the AW09 trend for Booties and it’s high time I followed it up with a how to wear… them piece. It’s all about the little dresses when it comes to the little booties and there are a couple of simple rules;

1. The absolute max height of your chosen bootie is about 5-8 cm above the ankle bone.

2. The absolute max length of your dress is mid-thigh.

The rules mean that if you go any longer with your dress / taller with your booties you risk making your lovely pins look as short as a Gringotts Goblin’s. The idea is to make sure you show enough leg length so that the eye isn’t fooled into thinking that your legs are shorter than they are. A longer dress or taller boot will seem to cut your leg length in half.

It’s a little more demure and a whole lot more edgy to wear your evening or day dress with booties.Here a few fashionable young females setting the standard, you’ll get what I mean!

Celebrities in Booties and LIttle DressesTaylor wears hers short, silver and slouched over. Chloe’s are amazing ( I need these) and from her collection for Opening Ceremony. Mischa Barton teams her sparkling dress with flat biker booties. Gwyneth keeps hers suede, short and sweet. Rihanna, who loves this trend, has fierce peep toe lace-up booties which look amazing against her day dress. Emma Roberts and V.B. keep their booties plain and simple to flatter their dress styles – though I still love the embellished neckline on Emma Robert’s short white dress.

It’s a Fashion/Rock Hissy Fit

Stella McCartney is being sued by the company that Ali Hewson co-founded, over the word Nude… (Oh the impossible puns!)

The Irish Indo covered the story today and has more on the whole debacle saying:

“At issue is the Beatle daughter’s use of the term “nude” in her eau de toilette “Stella Nude”, due to hit the shelves next month following the launch of her flesh-coloured spring/summer fashion collection.

But Ali, who is the co-founder of the Nude Skincare line founded by Northern organic food supermarket supremo Bryan Meehan, came up with the name “Nude” as a palindrome of her own eco-friendly and Fairtrade-affiliated fashion line “Edun”.”

Meh… Read the rest here if you can be bothered. I reckon Bono and Macca should settle it in the ring!

Thrilled about Frilled Trench Coats

Ever since I attended the Oasis AW09 preview and fell for this beautiful frilled trench coat I’ve begun see to the trend everywhere. The trench coat is such an obviously masculine garment but this season has seen it transform into an uniquely feminine winter coat. Although the classic beige Trench has been worn by women for decades, see Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, this new frilled-style in pretty, bold colours or basic black, brings the trench into a new fashion realm for AW09.

Frilled trench coats AW09

Top Row L-R: Frill trench coat €79 Littlewoods, Red frill neck Mac coat £60 Miss Selfridge, Frill front belted coat £75 Topshop.

Bottom Row L-R: Diane Von Furstenberg Navy Milliette Coat €759, D&G Ruffle Trench €700.
