Back in May, we reported on Graziadaily.co.uk on the rise in sales of shoulder pads and the shoulder pad frenzy that was taking over every high street brand from Topshop to Tammy.
Now, pics are in of the new ASOS collection and we're planning on shamelessly pinching their ideas taking a styling tip or two from them. Take one freshly-ironed loose white tee, a pair of £1.99 shoulder pads and a statement necklace, roll up those sleeves, tuck in the tee and voila, a so-right-now look with minimal effort. Alternatively, just buy the look readymade from ASOS.com when it lands mid-August.
Kind of sticking to the kooky theme, we've just spied a potential new fashion crush. Okay, Disney characters aren't exactly on the same page as Alexa and co, but knowing how Minnie has inspired designers over the years (think Moschino's Minnie Mouse dot dresses and Luella and Giles' recent overhaul of Mrs. Mouse's ears) we have a feeling the newly made-over Tink (you know, Peter Pan's fairy side kick) may well strike a style chord. With her on-trend leggings and gladiator-style boots we can just imagine they'll be lots of fairy-inspired outfits hitting the catwalks sometimes soon. Now where's our fairy dust...
Breaking news: The darling Kooky Cat bag that Alexa Chung rocked at the Baftas has just gone on sale at Lulu Guinness. We love it because it's small, hands-free and something of a conversation-starter. Get in fast if you want one, they're already selling like hot tamales!
Don't forget to watch Topshop NYC 24 hrs on MTV at 10pm (UK time) tomorrow! These multicoloured Kate Moss for Topshop jeans reminded us of the dip-dye jeans in Teen Vogue a while ago. How would you wear them?
