The Perks Of Being A Wallflower | Emma Watson

  

Emma Watson rocked these two outfits to the London and Toronto premiere of her latest film, the Perks of being a Wallflower.  The two outfits couldn’t be more different, with the first providing a modern twist on old Hollywood glamour, whilst the second creates more of a fun, youthful look. What I love most about these outfits is that although they are both so different in appearance, they still possess the same key principles that make up Ms Watson’s flawless style, she  certainly is no wallflower!

H&M | Parka

H&M-£49.99

I am a people watcher ok I admit it! The main reason I like to people watch is to observe the latest styles and fashions and in the winter this is at its most interesting! The one trend that has re-emerged every year is the parka jacket, which can be a great alternative to the more formal winter coats out there. This one by H&M is a great length and one that will look fab either dressed up or down!

Teen Vogue | Victoria Justice

Teen Vogue’s latest cover features the lovely Victoria Justice, who displays more of a mature, edgier look in this latest shoot.  The styling  mixes feminine pieces with rougher, more androgynous items and my favourite has to be the stone washed denim jacket, I just love how baggy it looks paired with a fitted silhouette underneath!

H&M | Purple Boots

H&M-£24.99 

If you like myself are a big fan of combat boots but have never had the confidence to rock a pair of Timberlands or Doc Martens, then this pair by H&M may be a good pair to start with! These boots still maintain the structure of a combat boot, but allow for a splash of feminine design with their use of colour and material and at £24.99 who can resist!!

Seventeen Magazine | Nina Dobrev

Nina Dobrev’s October cover spread with Seventeen has really inspired me to get ready for Autumn! I normally cling onto Summer for as long as possible but these pictures really make me want to embrace an Autumn wardrobe.  The use of colour in this spread is amazing, I love the deep berry and burnt orange used throughout and can see them being key colours for Autumn/Winter 2012.
