Quote Of The Day

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” - Coco Chanel

He May Be Just Not That Into Her... But God Are We Into Her Style!

One style I feel in love with recently was that of Anna, Scarlett Johansson's character in the hit film "He's Just Not That Into You". Anna wears simple, lose, curve-flattering styles in light and pretty colours. Through the film her staples were very faded and worn jeans, grey marl and nude loose tees and vests, soft cardigans, tan belts through the belt loops of her jeans and her beige trench.
She wore all these soft shapes with a care-free, happy and cheeky attitude, and emulated Alexa Chung's "just threw this on" vibe.
This look is incredibly easy to recreate, team it with long, loosely curled and tousled locks.
The best places to shop for this look are probably Mango, Gap and Zara, as these all have good basics ranges, nice knitwear and simple, slouchy shapes. If you don't find what you want there then you could also try Topshop, H&M, Urban Outfitters and the rest of the High Street. For a High-End alternative head to Chloe for beautiful-casual.

Here's a quick shopping list for anyone who loves the Chloe/Anna look:

High End - Just go to Chloe! Buy the whole shop!

High Street -
  • Mango is Mecca for you now; get some pretty, fine knit cardigans there in pale colours like grey, peach and nude. Also get a good beige trench coat, some loose tees and anything else that catches your eye.
  • Gap is also very good - stock up on basics such as vests and tan belt-loop sized belts. And always remember the colour palette - Grey, Peach, Pastels, Nude with the smallest hint of Black and Navy.
  • Zara - They have lovely cardigans and sweaters. Try on a a few in larger sizes for a looser fit, but remember you want to look relaxed and comfy rather than swamped. Cable knit is nice, I have a lovely grey marl long-line cardi from Zara.
  • Levi's - Get some good investment Jeans from their original makers. Choose the right fit for you, don't worry if they're skinny or boyfriend but stay away from flares and choose a faded, worn wash that gives a pastel blue shade rather than a harsher indigo.

Some Levi's to show you what to look for.
A great Chloe/Anna style Levi's Belt.
