Happy New Year to everyone, I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas, New Years Eve and enjoyed celebrating the start of 2012. I went to London last night to watch the amazing fireworks as seen below:
Now that Christmas and New Year are over it’s time to look forward to the new styles that you’ll be wearing in 2012. As always I like to take inspiration from catwalk trends, celebrities, the high street, vintage inspiration and street styles. I always think its better to have an ecclectic flavour than wear straight up and down designer, otherwise the look is too manufactured and shows no personality. The best thing about fashion is that it can be an expression of your own personality.
So instead of showing the catwalk trends for Spring / Summer 2012 I thought it would be great to show some of the best models off duty style from 2011 for your own casual style inspiration. I love seeing how others interpret trends and then mix the ideas in to my own wardrobe. Models know better than anyone the upcoming trends, as they always get to preview the collections before even the magazine editors, so they have a great way of incorporating designer style with their own wardrobes and create great casual looks. Heres some of the best model styles from 2011:
