Trend Forecast S/S 16: Western Wildcard

If you read the November issue of Vogue Au you probably found it hard to miss their observation of the reintroduction of cheeky Western add-ons to various outfits. Tassles, suede fabrics and stylishly cool hats are all front-runners you should be sure to include in your wardrobe this summer.


Adding a dash of the Wild Wild West gives you an edge without coming across as arrogant; fresh, without being garish.

And don’t go overboard; let the style speak for itself. Shoes, bags, jackets and other accessory items should feature your new trims, with simple colour palettes that reveal the true you.

Here are some picks you might like – happy shopping!

REVIEW: Kit Cosmetics The Little Black Dress Eyeshadow Palette


Recently I just happened to find myself in Mecca Maxima (as one does) with an urge to splurge. I didn’t have my mind set on anything in particular, until a glimmer of gold caught my eye: the new Kit Cosmetics “The Little Black Dress, Party-Proof Eyeshadow Palette”. I had been searching for something suitable for both day and night time glamour, with metal tones, neutrals and pops of colour; and this palette has it all!

This sassy set of gorgeous shadows are sure to glam up any little number. From movie night to hot-date-night, the versatility of this deceptively compact palette is sure to impress. Add onto that the fact it also comes with an applicator brush and khol pencil liner, and you’ve got yourself a dream set!

Here are my swatches below:
