aw10 Trends: the Cape

Perhaps thanks to the current global obsession with all things vampire-ish, the cape is the coolest coat to be wearing this season. But think plain – the shape of the coat speaks for itself and a pattern will kill the look. And don’t let yourself throw a cape over baggy trousers – harems or otherwise. Skinnies or minis, please, to avoid looking like a bag lady. Or a bin lady. Or even a bin bag lady.

Denim Jackets

Denim’s always big in Spring – but this year it’s everywhere. The beauty of a demin jacket is that you can throw it on top of nearly anything, but I think they look best unbuttoned on top of summery dresses…

 Wear with:

 Minkpink Cross Back Floral Dress

Serena Van der Woodsen

Next up in the Gossip Girl style mini-series: Serena

Serena’s style is much more casual than Blair’s; she throws on layers for a more laidback, ‘Kate Moss’ look. Here are my favourite pieces that remind me of Serena:

From top-left across: shoe – topshop, earrings – topshop,  blazer – topshop, denim jacket – urban outfitters, top – topshop, shoe – topshop, skirt – asos, bag – topshop
