Time to post the photos I took at the Coast preview for spring/summer 2012.
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. Alternatively, Spring/Summer focuses on the racing season and weddings – be you guest or bridesmaid.
Usually 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 autum/winter 2011 I fell for this this maroon dress. worn with antique, therefore less sparkly, jewellery.
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. Coast’s spring/summer fashion is offering us so much more than ever for 2012.
