I’ve been an M&S fan for as long as I can remember. I simply love their high couture fashion and on-trend collections. I have shopped around in M&S stores in India a lot, and now in UK as well. My first visit to Marks & Spencer Marble Arch Store this week, had me in complete awe. I felt spoilt for choice when it came to selecting something from their On Trend Collection. I digress, but Marks & Spencer always has a very appealing stock which guarantees expert tailoring. You can rarely go wrong when it comes to their selection of styles!
One prominent trend visible in M&S’s current collection was geometry-inspired styles. That is not surprising for the red carpet has seen a lot of such cutting-edge geometrical prints in the recent past. Naturally, celebrity fashion has caused this particular trend to trickle down to the masses. Catwalk couture has made bold, elegant geometrical prints, teamed with contrast-panelled jackets/skirts, the effortlessly-chic-look of the season. Pairing computer calculated patterns with figure-hugging miniskirts has also been a hugely popular trend, both on & off the ramp. And that’s not all; of late, geometrical prints with bright, contrasting colours, worn with structured jackets, are being deemed the chicest attire. Since this trend has been garnering wonderful response from the fashion police, I thought I really must experiment with it too, and M&S was perhaps the best place to start!
So this is what I did; on my day trip to Historic Stratford upon Avon, known for being the birth place of Shakespeare, I styled their geometric print jacket with a bold cobalt blue top. It is a sophisticated outfit which is striking no doubt, yet very much on trend as well. I have styled this top with a slim black trouser and matching pair of platform shoes. I chose to wear platform shoes for they are easy to walk in; the perfect choice when I know I will be taking long strolls in beautiful parks. I accessorized with a silver statement necklace in geometric design to add glamour to the whole look.
The visit to Woolacombe Hotel for afternoon tea with friends was a nice, relaxing touch to the day. You can donn this (don this) effortlessly chic look for office too, or style it with accessories for it to work as an office-to-night look.
