    one of the big looks on the catwalk has been classic tailoring to accentuate curves
    I love the sound of this look, but having browsed some magazines, have noticed that they may mean curves on thin women, rather than actual curves. And am not sure I could get away with a pencil skirt anyway :rolleyes:

    You're right though, lots more looks to choose from.

    Other-all the clothes I currently wear plus anything new that catches my eye. I like knitted stuff-cardigans mainly so they will be worn a lot. Of course my new coat will form and essential part of my wardrobe. It is a lovely brown parka style thing. Ok so they may be on the way out but I like to buy a coat when I fall in love with it and wear it for years. I beame rather well known for a long brown and red coat from H&M that I wore for 4 winters in a row!!

    I'm thinking a bit of a rock-chick vibe this winter, not exactly 'this season', I know. Black band t-shirts, black washed-out denim mini, opaque tights and some amaaaaazing boots from Schuh. Accessorised avec my skinny striped Topshop scarf. Oh yes.

    I think New Woman is a bit weird... 80's is very now, in the form of puffball skirts (I know I keep ranting about them but they're just soooo good).

    And what are we suppose to do with our bag charms?! I just cracked and bought one, a cute elephant I have named Robert. I can't bin Robert.

    *sprays new woman with mace* ... but actually its quite a good magazine.

    Hmm... some of the larger topshops have a biba/bakelite look which is bright and chunky. Its not for everyone though, you have to be the right sort of person.

    I got a great folk-y looking necklace for £3.33 from an Indian market stall which is great. Chunky and thick and not fussy, and would brighten up a black/white outfit. Maybe you could look for something like that? Yeah, so just simple stuff which is eyecatching, in bold colours and makes the outfit look like a fashion choice rather than just a black'n'white moment.

    Then again, I'm also not sure... I tend to wear less jewellery with black and white because it makes enough of a statement on its own.
    I have one chunky necklace, thanks for the tip with the market! but like you, I'm just not sure. I think I'll just have to steal some of my sisters jewlry now that she's on holiday here for a week, and try it out with my stuff, hehehe. Get her opinion on it maybe.

    I think i'll go for flat ug-boot things, opaque tights, short skirt slightly flicked out, jacket blazer type, flat cap to one side and dangley or hoop earrings, probably with a stripey scarf to match............not sure what that look is, but i'm pretty sure its last seasons
    Although I find if you stay a season behind you can look individual, and yet people still recognise it as 'good fashion' -eh??!!

    And according to an article in Elle magazine, cowboy boots aren't part of any look for a/w '05, so I haven't got a clue what New Woman is talking about! :confused:

    I'm not either!!

    It's so stupid when they say a cetain cut is 'so now' and everything is 'last season.' We can't all wear the same cut!

    I intend to continue dressing according to the weather. If it's freezing then I intend to wear my chunky-knit jumpers whether they are in or not!

    In answer to an earlier post, broderie anglais is a form of embroidery which is basically a pattern with holes that are embroidered around. So it's a little silly for an autumn / winter trend. Maybe early september, but any later and we'd freeze.

    You'd think, but I have a feature from B magazine in which they are basically showing more colourful/patterned gypsy skirts (i.e. same/similar styles) and calling them 'Folk' skirts. There's actually a brown, floor-length gypsy skirt from Kookai that they're calling folk!

    The fashion world is sucky and hypocritical. Why oh why do we love it so much.
