Carrie on Sex and the City was doing it way before the rest of the world, but it seems the tutu is finally making it onto the high street. After the recent trend for ra-ra, tulip and bell shaped skirts, designers have taken the next step and gone for the tutu.
Perfect for summer, this is a great alternative to the maxi for a statement dress, and the high street has given it a grungey, rock chick edge, so you won’t look too much like a ballerina.
Topshop have this Tutu Stud Dress – a black vest top with a layered tutu dress, cross-over straps and stud detail along the waist line. They’ve gone easy on the netting, so it’s easy to move about and sit down in. Match it with sky-scraper sandals and a leather jacket for the ultimate grunge look with a sophisticated edge. It costs £60 and is available online now.

For those of you who are a fan of Kate Moss’s collections for Topshop, you’ll probably already be aware that her Spring Summer 09 line launches tomorrow, Thursday 2nd April.
This is her 9th line for the store and features some great little pieces. From checking out the sneak peeks I really like the look of her sequined dresses – especially this cream one which is great for the 20’s revival for frocks this summer.
She has also reworked three of Liberty’s iconic floral prints and has them featured on all sorts, from ditsy dresses, to cardies to scarves – perfect for the popular floral trend.

Balmain is unmistakably one of the most popular designers of denim right now and if like me, you love them but the £1k+ price tag is out of your reach then it looks like Siwy have come to our rescue!
Pictured right, and available from ASOS for £150 these tie die skinny crop jeans are very reminiscent of Balmain’s pair as seen on their spring / summer 09 catwalk show (as per the image on the left).
Team as Balmain do, with directional cool separates such as a cropped leather jacket and slinky vest tucked in and heels.
With celebs such as Jessica Szohr, Kate Moss and Kylie all sporting the latest Balmain denim right now, imitations are bound to be flying off the shelves, so pick up your pair here before they sell out!

So florals are going to be huge next season and my top pick so far for this trend has to be this beautifully feminine blouse from Elizabeth and James (one of the Olsen twin’s stunning fashion lines).
This multicoloured button up blouse is 100% silk and features Victoriana style ruffles trims and puff sleeves. I love the sheer quality to it – which is another top trend for S/S 09.
Toughen up as the Olsen’s would with high waist trousers and sky high heels.
You can get yours from Net-a-porter for £220.21.

I think this ruffle mini dress by Elizabeth and James is simply gorgeous. Perfect for the festivities, it features a snow cotton blend and contrasting asymmetrical one shoulder strap with ruffle detailing.
The pleated panels give this dress great movement for the dance floor and the gathered material is great for concealing any Christmas over indulgencies around the middle are. What’s more the ruffle feature and contrast colour will bring the attention to your upper half as well.
Team as the Olsen twins would themselves with tough items such a slim-fit sculpted leather bomber and towering chunky leather heels.
This dress is available from Net-a-porter for £360.

I love Dolce and Gabbana, and would love to indulge in a little something from their collection, and I was rather surprised to come across this little item on Net-a-porter this week. For just £175 you can nab yourself this signature D&G corset top.
What I love about this item is that for me, it sums up D&G. The lace panelled trim and exposed zip at the back are both details that make this item of the moment. However, the sensual tailoring and sexy undertones are very typical of D&G’s designs. Madonna is a big fan (once having them design most to her costumes for one of her tours) and this is absolutely something you could have seen her wear back in the day.
Perfect for teaming with skin tight jeans, a tux jacket and towering heels, this is bang on trend yet will never date. If you wish to pick yourself up a slice of D&G, head over to Net-a-porter today.

If you loved the dress Keira Knightley wore to The Edge of Love premiere you may be delighted to see ASOS have come up with a very pretty substitute to Keira’s designer frock by Erdem.
For just £55 you can pick up this very similar piece which features the almost the exact same shape with the addition of an asymmetric ruffled strap. This dress doesn’t have as much bounce and volume, so you may want to try teaming with a netting underskirt to mimic the same shape as the Erdem number.
For an ultra chic look I would keep shoes and accessories minimal and just stick to plain black and let the frock take centre stage.

Sarah Jessica Parker sets the new trend of bling up mobile phones with her swarkovski crystal handset in the recent Sex and The City movie. Carried by Carrie throughout the series and now in the blockbuster, a blinged up phone is a must have.
Luckily Mobilesplease are bringing La baed company Bling Ring.. who have blinged up Jessica Simpson, Kimberley Stuart and Hilary Duff’s phones recently, specialise in gorgeous crystallising kits so you can DIY. They are very simple to apply and are available in various patterns such as flowers, hearts, stripes and skulls or you can get creative with the single packs and put your personality in to it.
Sadly Carrie threw hers into the Mexican sea in the movie so maybe she should take a look at Mobilesplease to stock up on the kits. Prices start from £6.99 and they are available to pre order from mobilesplease.co.uk

Kate’s Christmas collection hits Topshop’s shop floor on Tuesday October 28th (when you can also pick the items up online on Topshop.com). The collection is full of great party pieces featuring sequins to sweeping floor length dresses.
These are three of Kate’s top pics from the collection. One of her other favourites is a dress with a print of a leopard across the neckline which she has lifted from a tee she used to wear as a teenager and has revamped into a mini dress. Another of her favourites are some large pocketed floral grey wide leg trousers.
All these items are set to be snapped up so if you’re a fan of Kate you may want to keep Tuesday in mind!

I love the Olsen Twin’s label Elizabeth and James, and now available over at Net-a-porter is this gorgeous plaid coat from their collection. Typical of their style, this could easily have fallen out of one of their closets.
You could team it as they would, with super skinny jeans, towering heels and an oversized clutch, however, this is such a versatile piece it could be chucked over just about anything.
The coat features pockets on each hip, and the contrast ribbed sleeves and hidden magnetic fastening at the neck make sure this coat keeps you cosy.
Get yours for £515 from Net-a-porter today!
