Last week, I attended London Fashion Weekend and watched the S/S09 catwalk. According to the fashion experts we should all be dressing with a hint of 'trailer park glamour' and bring out the African Queens in us. Hmmm, I'm not so sure. However, there were a couple of looks from the show that did catch my fashion eye; the new ethereal nudes ( bringing back Grecian chic), and the retro housewives (a combination of 80s power dressing and today's body con meets sport luxe shapes).
Since then I've been browsing the net to see what shops have those looks on sale now. Principles have some fabulous pieces matching the description rather well. All the key components are there; graphic dresses and block colours with ethereal neutral tones and floaty fabrics. Both looks are matched with chunky or gladiator sandals to harden and add edge. Above all, they are totally wearable.
