More planning for Autumn

Following on from my first Autumn planning post, here's part 2, containing the second general trend direction-y idea I want to try out this season.

The Notion: Sexy young Parisian who's into all things luxe and is just a little bit naughty...

The inspirations:

Louis Vuitton
Of course.
LV this season is quintessential French sexiness, simple as. Sheer lace, silk, ruffles.. Pink in every shade will be making its way into my wardrobe. And then there's the bunny ears adding a playful twist. Quirky headwear it is then!


Richard Nichol
Don't the models just look like sexy robots from the future? Like if Arnie shopped at Agent Provocateur. Or on second thoughts not... :S
Loving the muted colour palette, beige never looked so appealing! This is inspiring an underwear-as-outerwear feeling for me.


D&G
This is just the epitome of sumptuous fashion isn't it. So many pictures as I just couldn't cut it down. Possibly my favourite collection from this season.
There's so much you can take away from this collection - lace, brocade, quilting, leopard print, velvet.. In trying to emulate these looks it'll be important to exercise some restraint and stay on the right side of OTT. The finish of fabrics is the key thing here, so velvet is definitely going to be something I'll be looking for, and I really want a quilted dress now. Asos has a lovely one here which comes in black and royal purple, but unfortunately I know it wouldn't fit (as I'm different sizes on the top and bottom.) Possibly a DIY if I'm feeling brave!

The easiest and cheapest way to get this overall look is with hosiery. Lace or sheer black tights will be a wardrobe staple, and maybe even hold-ups and a suspender belt.

Items from Asos, Topshop and Black Milk

It's important to keep the rest of your outfit casual and modest to avoid looking trashy with this type of hosiery though! If I get a suspender belt I'll be pairing it with thick over-the-knee socks rather than actual stockings to tone down the "sex" factor.
I love these pieces by designer Natalie Encarnita (who you can find stocked on Asos and Pixie Market.) Her clothes are a twist on "sexy" by using lingerie sihouettes and elements as patterns and embellishment on the outside, rather than underneith, so they're more casual and quirky.

I especially love the bra back dress and bustier applique top. The "suspender leggings" remind me of the new House of Holland tights, don't you think?

What do you think of the "sexy Parisian" look? Id it something you'd be tempted to try this season?
