4. Boutique Sass
Boutique sass is one of my favourite trends. It feels very much like a juicy season of Made In Chelsea where the cast is continuously out drinking champagne, gossiping over fancy dinners, attending lush parties, and looking absolutely fabulous while doing so. A lifestyle that quite frankly feels like a distant memory for many of us. But even if your weekly gossips over a steak tartare have been postponed, there's no need not to dress up. That's my philosophy anyway. To me, boutique sass is about being effortlessly chic. It's European inspired, minimalistic in many ways, but says a lot. It's reminiscent of Victoria Beckham, and Olivia Palermo - who I referred to as one of my style icons for many years.
Have you ever put on an outfit that causes you to walk differently? Head held high, shoulders back? That's how this trend makes me feel, and as a result, I had to show you two ways I'd tackle this trend: one slightly more casual than another which is equally as fierce but with boss-babe vibes.
For the first look, I wanted to take a more sophisticated, edgy approach, where the coat does most of the talking. Despite not necessarily being bright, it's definitely bold. A black dogtooth coat paired very simply with the black jeans and boots screams "fierce".
For a more 'model of duty'/casual Victoria Beckham inspired look, the pairing of this black blazer, white turtleneck, jeans and trainers, makes for Friday business attire. And even if you're working from home, this outfit lets everyone know you’re still the one in charge.
