Here is a Fashionista I found walking around the very “posh” borough of South Kensington, London. This fashionista is studying internationally and she really has an outfit to match her posh new environment. Early in the morning on a Sunday you can find a typical woman in the area off to get her traditional English breakfast in tights and a flirty A-line dress. Perhaps because of London’s still rather mild weather, you can get away with a bubble dress and tights. The best feature is the large pockets providing a flattering feminine line and also a great place to warm your hands.
This look is sophisticated, yet flirty, and just warm enough. This Fashionista pairs a fantastic camel and black striped pocket dress with marsala tights to add a pop of color and some depth. A skinny belt accentuates the flirty, bubble, A-line which you can see all over people off to shop or eat in the area. She pairs the look with a structured Kate Spade bag, a gold watch, and a pair of very cute flat camel booties (another trend sweeping South Kensington). The pocket dress is sophisticated and simple. It is a piece that you can put on and look put together. You may be quickly running out with friends or in a general rush but this dress will never fail. You will always look good in the pocket dress and the tights add a weather appropriate aspect. A classic look like this is easy and sophisticated and almost a staple in such a busy city.
How To: If you are looking to imitate the trend, simple accessories and interesting tights are the best way to do it right! The simplicity of the look is the best way to embody its sophistication. The pattern and line of the dress is the best accessory, and matching it with fun bright tights like this Fashionista will add a flirty and fun flare, as well as keep the outfit comfortable in the cold winter months! A bootie with a small heel will add a pop to the skirt and make it seem even more feminine. If you’re looking to really pull of the posh pocket dress, keep accessories simple and let the dress do the talking. A pattern like stripes or a color-block will also pull off the trend, and keep things simple and posh! Stay fabulous!
