April 2014 - Trends

Hi to all my fashion followerssssssssssssss!

I decided to collaborate a few trends and ideas to start of your week! Hopefully this will inspire you for outfit choices and not leave you all stuck at your wardrobe wondering what to wear for half an hour!

The trends that I have spotted recently are the mono casual look, and the modern tailoring.
Clothing & Footwear from Topshop & Asos this month

The Mono Casual look is an easy trend to follow as most of the clothing can be transformed from day - night with a pair of shoes of the season! I am a huge fan of the leather look joggers, recently Lauren Pope was pictured with a pair and teamed them with some strappy heeled sandals and they looked great. The material of the mono casual look is mainly cotton, this means that the look is easy to play around with and to add other items and accessories to dress it up. 

Lately I am absolutely loving shoes! For a girl like me whos 5'4 an extra 3 or 4 inches can make so much difference and can really lengthen out your legs. These kind of shoes are great for work and great for socialising. 

The Modern tailoring look is something that I love playing with for work. I have a fair few pairs of tailored trousers and thats all you really need to rock this look. Grab yourself a white pair and a black pair and you can probably team it with most of the shirts and tops you have in your wardrobe! The brighter colours and more funkier designs are coming in too, team these with a block coloured boxy shirt or collared shirt to tie the outfit together.

The Strappy Heel - It can literally be worn with anything. Must have! Get a pair on ASOS now.

All appointments are tailor made for you :)

Choose O P T I M I S M !

This post is slightly different to the normal fashion related topics that are seen coming from this blog. Chloe Noir is not only about showing the latest trends and fashion tips but making sure each individual is happy with the skin they are in and improving confidence with clothing. I would like to share with you a few a tips that I have recently learnt myself.

Being only 21 I am most definitely not the fount of all knowledge however, I sure have had some life experiences that have put a lot of things into perspective. 

Sometimes we can live in such an ugly world. I believe the media have a huge part to play in a lot of hate and negativity. There is no privacy for most people, and the rest like to detail every aspect of their life on social networking sites.  There are so many people around that are only in things for themselves and not wanting to help the greater good of other people. When really we should all be celebrating each other's success and encouraging each other to do well in life.

Only a couple of months ago, something suddenly hit me. The attitude that I had at the time really was not getting me anywhere, although I have always been motivated and wanting to do well in life, I did not believe in myself one bit. So why would anyone else? For me this was due to a massive confidence issue that I had with myself and this reflected in something that I was passionate about.

I woke up one day and thought, today. Today is the day to be happy, optimistic and to kick ass! I know I'm not getting any younger, and I'm going to be optimistic, because I really believe what I am trying to achieve is for the greater good of other people. And, if it doesn't work out, at least I can say I tried. Reading optimistic quotes, and looking at pictures really helped me, it will motivate you find you what to really do in life and the steps you can take to achieve it. Remember, optimism is a choice and believe me it was the best choice I ever made. Optimism is key.

Whatever it is that you want to achieve in life, I really believe you can do it! Change the I can't, to I will! Believe in yourself and be happy of other peoples success. Go for it, you have only one life so give it your best shot. 

And that's why I believe now...My world is beautiful.

Love & Happiness;

The Come Back of The Birkenstock

Recently I was going through a seasonal 'clear out the wardrobe and restock' kinda moment, when I contemplated throwing away my Birkenstocks that I have had now for about 5 years. I couldn't honestly tell you the last time I wore them as all you would see me in last summer would have been my white or black converse, or some form of strappy sandals.

Last week whilst heading back home on the train I picked up The Stylist, (a well known free fashion magazine given to commuters) which detailed that the BIRKS ARE BACK. With all the chunky ankle boots and sandals that are in this season I felt kinda stupid that I was about to throw them away. I have now recently stumbled across the ASOS website which has a whole page dedicated to the Birkenstocks. So hurry up and dig out your vintage birkys or buy some brand new sparkly ones because they are back!

Asos - £44.95 Rio 2 Strap White Sandals
Im teaming mine with a pair of skinnys and this Kimono from Oasis, by wearing my hair in loose curls with a chunky plait I can create the ultimate boho chic look.

Oasis - £40

3 Pairs of Perfection

You don't want these shoes. You NEED them.

Im not really sure why, but all of a sudden I have had a complete shoe craze! The three famous styles this season are loafers, ankle boots and strappy heels.

Strappy Heels - Perfect for the modern tailoring look

Ankle Boots - style with black tights, leather jacket and casual dress

Loafers - chuck on a pair of jeans for a casual look

Here is how i wear my version of the ankle boot!
Long sleeved turtle neck, Levi Jeans rolled up & a chunky brown belt.

Purchased in March from H&M £29.99

Here are all my shoes that i am wearing lately. I tend to go for colours of neutral, black or white. This way i can pretty much wear any outfit I like and really get my monies worth!

Not enough feet
Shoe Forecasting - Looking into the future I see the slip on trainer becoming popular to either just chuck on with a pair of jeans or with a cute casual dress. The flat wedge is another that I can see becoming really popular. I particularly like the fact that everyone is stepping (excuse the pun) out of their comfort zone and slipping into some white shoes! I think the flat wedges in particular should be worn in white.
Asos - £40.00

Make those toes smile! Keep in touch for a shoe styling video coming shortly.
