Layed back cool!

With Spring approaching chose pieces that are understated and casual. This season its all about minimilised style with classic and investment pieces leading the way. If you want to make sure that your look doesn`t say "uninteresting, chose items with downplayed detail or wear a piece of bold jewellery, but remember less is always more.

The Mini

Exhibit your legs with this seasons minis. Opt for striking and bold rather than safe. Wear with a neutral top to balance the outfit, or a clashing print if your`re feeling adventurous. Add sex appeal by ditching the tights and adding some killer heels. Confidence is key to rock this look, so stand proud and soak up the attention.

Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week

Three words to sum up Madrid Fashion Week: Outrageous, bold and perplexing. Some creations were glamourous to say the least, while others seemed like works of art rather than items of clothing. The wearability of these items is questionable but the imagination behind these items is worthy of praise. Designer Andres Sarda showcased clothing to get the heart racing, with some items barely covering the models modesty, such as that above. The themes of the designers seemed rather synonymous, that of revealing designs. Lace was a material part of many of the designers collections. However, my favourite of all must be the "rose" piece by Andres Sarda. One can only suppose on what occasion that outfit would be suitable
