Junior Fashion Editor Alexandra Venison answers all your style questions, from attention-grabbing flats to the perfect denim jacket…
Q.) I absolutely fell in love with Valentino’s Rockstud ballerina flats. I basically have them in every colour and am looking for something just as comfortable, versatile and chic. Is there anything on the market right now that might sway my heart?
A.) We too are huge fans of Valentino and never thought there could be a cuter flat. But low and behold, Tom Ford came along to throw a spanner in the works with his calf hair padlock ballerina flat. Just like the Valentino Rockstud this will be a flat to fall in love with. Dolce & Gabbana have also designed some beautiful shoe candy, which is sure to get your fashion hearts racing.
Q.) I want a jacket I can fling over my summer dresses to take them from the heat to the A/C without looking too wintery. I already have leather jackets and have dabbled with bomber jackets but I want something that’s going to last and is adaptable to different styles of dress. What’s your suggestion?
A.) The classic denim jacket is coming back with a bang this autumn. The best part is there’s a jacket for every budget and style – opt for the classic cut or even try vintage. The best part about the denim jacket is that it transcends seasons. They are investment pieces that will be in your wardrobe for decades to come.
