Stella McCartney has been one of the most talked about names this season, with her new collections enchanting everyone in the fashion industry.
All this week on Net A Porter there’s been an exclusive capsule collection by Stella McCartney, accompanied by a film. The first two collections, ‘Magnolia Tree’ and ‘Poem’ are available now, with ‘Island’ and ‘Kite’s arriving today and tomorrow. ‘Magnolia Tree’ is a smart collection, with pieces perfect for work wear and evening wear, including a jumpsuit and a bustier dress. ‘Poem’ is more of a casual collection, with tailored trousers and shorts and cute wedges with a cloud print detail.
There are four key looks in each collection, and the items can be mixed and matched. All the items are in this season’s key colours of white, nude and honeydew.
If you fancy owning a piece of this exclusive collection then head over to Net A Porter now.

If you weren’t quite brave enough to try a jumpsuit first time around then don’t worry – there’s a second chance as they’re still big news for S/S 09. Now we’re (supposedly) heading towards warmer weather, jumpsuit designs are moving away from looking like head to toe boiler suits in dark colours, and have got a more feminine, carefree look to them.
This Belle & Bunty for ASOS Draped Halterneck Harem Jumpsuit is perfect for spring evenings, and combines the jumpsuit with harem trousers – another key trend. The halter neck gives it a less intense look, and the contrasting black waist band helps break up the colour. Made from 55% silk it won’t grip or cling in all the wrong places.
It costs £79 – not too bad as you’re getting trousers and a top – and is available now.

Another item which is set to hang around next season is the harem trouser, and if you haven’t already got a pair tucked safely away in your closet then these are a great steal from Oasis. Not only are they already reduced from £25 to £12 in the sale, at the moment you can also get an additional 20% when you buy online.
As seen this season, team for Spring/Summer with towering heels and tucked in blouses to keep the look smart and as far away from frumpy as you can get, when donning something so tricky as the harem pant.
Most people I’ve spoken to find the harem a bit of a challenge – some find them very unflattering in the thigh area and others can’t seem to stand the crotch area hanging out 6 inches lower than feels right.
However, I’ve also heard a lot of people say if you get a cut that works for you they can be really comfortable, flattering and I imagine, in the summer when all you want is floaty non-restricting clothing in the heat – these could be heavenly.

If like me, you’ve been eyeing up all that All Saints have to offer this season, then it may be worth paying one of their stores a visit or having a little peruse online, as until 30th November (Sunday) they are offering 20% selected items!
My top picks are these three gorgeous items:
Firstly, you can pick up a great leather item such as this fringed gillet, which is perfect for so many trends this season. Ordinarily £350 you can pick this up for just £280 if you pick it up before the end of the week!
Secondly you could invest in some great denim. These indigo low rise skinnies feature zip fastenings at the hem to follow for a skinnier fit. Normally £55, these can be nabbed for £44.
Lastly a great trench is a must-have for any wardrobe and I love this double breasted draped version. It features concealed flap pockets and is waterproof and is a classic item that will last and last. You’d usually have to pay £250 but for this limited time can snap it up for £200.

Net-a-porter have just taken stock of another batch of Elizabeth and James clothes and among them are these stunning slim-fit pants. The double breasted button detailing give them an equestrian feel and the deep set pockets make them practical too.
For simplicity keep the look long and steam-lined by teaming with sky high heels and a white round neck vest tucked in. Do make with a Victoriana or heritage feel, but just be sure not to take the look too literally. A cropped riding jacket for example may be a bit much, however, a crisp white high neck ruffle shirt could work nicely.
You can pick a pair up from Net-a-porter for £215!

Well taking into consideration that patterned fish net tights seem to be the in look for the autumn following the gothic punk trend, these printed skinny trousers may actually work!
They are in the style of the very cool must-have Les Chiffoniers leather leggings with the funky side zips that are causing a stir amongst A listers.
However be very careful if you buy these trousers as they could look a bit garish! I recommend wearing them with a chic black leather jacket and some platform heels! Buy yours today for £38 from Topshop online!

It is all about highwaisted tapered trousers for the autumn, we are finally seeing a shift away from ultra skinny trousers and a move towards a more sophisticated wider tailored leg. This pair of grey tapered trousers are great for casual and formal wear!
For a more casual funky look I think this sequin bib tuxedo top from Topshop looks great with the trousers, ensure you wear tucked in to make the most of the highwaist and skinny patent belt.
I think these shoes are just fab! They are smart and sophisticated; they could be worn for work with trousers or maybe with a little dress for the evening! A great investment for £60!
All these items are from Topshop and can be purchased online today!

After Christopher Kanes mind blowing A/W catwalk show that featured giant sequin embellishments it is no wonder that this trend has come around.
Les Chiffoniers are the first to bless us with these look by designing these fabulous sequin garments!
The sequin hero jacket is going to be a sell out, worn with a simple t shirt and skinnies this jacket is going to be in every A listers wardrobe. If however you have fantastic pins why not make the most of them in these sequin leggings!
