Time to post the photos I took at the Coast preview for S/S’12.
Coast has a very consistent seasonal style. Autumn/Winter is all about jewel shades, evening dresses, bling and faux-fur wraps; to get their customers all ready for the Christmas season. Spring/Summer on the other hand, focuses on the racing and wedding season, the latter, be you guest or bridesmaid. Resulting in a plethora of strapless, stiffened-bodice, knee-length or maxi frocks in duchess satin and/or chiffon. Standard occasion wear if you will…
However, each season gleaming like a jewel (among the jewel shades?) is often a piece or two that you could wear on a less formal occasion. In A/W’11 was this maroon dress.
or this pink ‘peplum top’ and pencil skirt. I am a little mad about peplums at the moment…Granted the last piece is quite dressy (and apologies for throwing it on over my black opaques and then having to borrow a pair of size 6 pumps) but I reckon, mix it up with leather and you have a whole different look.
