The L Word

The L Word

If there is one word that I’d pick to sum up my personal style, (and some of you might already know this), it has to be ‘layering’.  So what’s that I hear is a big trend for the upcoming season?  Why, it’s the L word and I couldn’t be happier.  This is the first of many MANY posts dedicated to the L word during the autumn/winter season.  By the time it’s over, you guys are going to be so sick of layering, you’ll wanna run out in a single slip dress in the freezing cold.  When I saw this editorial entitled ‘Art School Production’ by Bruce Weber in the July issue of Vogue Italia, I was thinking ‘Please let it get colder soon.  All these flimsy single layers are making my skin itch!’.  I see cool headgear, chunky jumpers, belted up oversized coats, long skirts and shawls worn as dresses.  The groundwork has here been laid for all the cosy outfits I will be wearing when it’s 5 degrees.

    hmmm. i often am wearing a particular look, or have thought of it long before the magazines start singing its praises, or clothing companies start mass producing it. either i am being followed, or i think the same as influential people who draw their inspiration from wherever i draw mine from…? perhaps it’s the same with the layering….
