Happy New Year!
Haute Couture Rule 1: Turn up the volume with your skirts and dresses...step out in your ball gown with a relaxed white t-shirt. Take inspiration from Giambattista Valli. This Italian couturier's presentation included a series of candy hued tulle confections. The Giambattista girl is eccentric and the epitome of fashion.
Haute Couture Rule 2 : Couture is not for the fainthearted. Make a statement and say what you're thinking by wearing a slogan t-shirt with a sequin skirt or leather pants. Don't be afraid to express yourself. The Maison Martin Margiela show paired colourful slogans with delicate sequins and encrusted patch work. Take your cue from this designer's vivid colour explosion.
Haute Couture Rule 3 : Embellishment! The more bling the better! The statement necklace is the perfect way to embrace this trend...look no further than Chanel's interpretation of Versailles, the opulence that is synonymous with Marie Antoinette and that era...Chanel also featured "seamless couture" - coats and jackets made from a single piece of fabric.
Haute Couture Rule 4 : Metallics are not only for night time. Incorporate them into your day look by pairing them with neutrals or with high shine jewellery like metallic cuffs, earrings and necklaces. Take your fashion advice from Donatella Versace who used metallics to make couture modern.
Haute Couture Rule 5 : Red is a strong colour, intense and striking. Wear this bold look with simple lines or in accessories. Embrace your playful side as Armani Prive did during his summer shows.
Haute Couture Rule 6 : Soft, sheer, pastel fabric is romantic, elegant and feminine. Revealed in the right places in the right amounts can express limitless luxury as in Elie Saab's world...
SO...by taking advice from these 6 big designers you can transform your closet and your style by joining the exclusive world of Haute Couture and start off the New Year in true fashion, style and glamour!
