With the festive season fast approaching, ladies nationwide face the panic of “what to wear”?
Year after year, many of us are guilty of “playing it safe” and opting for the tried and tested little black dress. This annual homage to the legend that is Audrey Hepburn has varied over the years and we’ve seen it dressed up with embellishments as well as toned down with simplistic adornments.
This year, I’m going to be breaking my LBD tradition and choosing instead to wear my LBJ: that’s “Little Black Jacket” – and thanks to Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld the little black jacket is reborn and subsequently all the rage right now.
A new book by Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld (ex Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris and current Editor-in-Chief of CR Fashion-Book) revisits the Chanel classic with help from some familiar faces such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Lily Allen. With the book comes an exhibition winging it’s way around the world’s major capital cities, stopping off in London this month.
I’m looking forward to receiving the book under the tree this year, and shall waste no time in donning my LBJ. What are you all wearing this party season? Share your style ideas and inspiration with me on Facebook; I look forward to stealing your outfits then!
