    Cruel Intentions anyone?

    Velvet is big this season– and we mean really big. It’s been everywhere from the accessories at Dries Van Noten to the crushed velvet dresses at Topshop Unique.

    Channel your inner goth with Cruel Intentions-inspired velvet dresses (you can even accessorise with chokers and ankle boots to perfect the look).

  • The
    The "Lemonade" Inspired Dress

    We all remember when Lemonade was released as a video album. It was quite the hit (through a windshield….with a baseball bat.)

    Anyway, what made the album so iconic was also the fashion it used (lots of Gucci and Roberto Cavalli).

    To get the look, choose a yellow ruffled dress which references Lemonade while also being a safe trend investment for next year.

  • The Ballet Tulle Addition
    The Ballet Tulle Addition

    Ballet is one of the leading trends this Fall/Winter, prompted by the ethereal looks sent on the runway at Valentino.

    With layers of tulle and lace-up ballet flats (a la MiuMiu for those with a punk edge), dressing up as a ballerina makes it less of a costume and more of a style statement.

  • The Madonna Corset
    The Madonna Corset

    Everyone remembers the iconic Jean Paul Gautier pointy corset Madonna was sporting onstage in 1990.

    And with the return of the lingerie as outerwear trend, a corset on top of a silk slip dress or a tulle skirt and combat boots will give you the punk princess look that’s so relevant nowadays.
