Steal Victoria Beckham’s Chic & Sleek Black and White Look for Less. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG

Victoria_beckham_jacket

Irrespective of Posh Spice the (skinny) person, her style is generally impeccable. Like Jackie O, Audrey Hepburn, & other timeless style mavens have shown, the secret to timeless chic is to find a "uniform" that works...and then work it to death. These pix show Victoria Beckham successfully doing various takes on the same theme: a black shift, slimming black stockings & footwear, and then adding accessories such as a chic bag & shades, and topping it off with an eyecatching jacket with graphic appeal. 

Some options for stealing Mrs. Beckhams' style without breaking the bank:

In between shooting all over NYC and just generally being fabulous, Naj checks in with Fashiontribes each wek to let savvy stylistas in on the trends...straight from the stylish streets of Gotham:

Some fun New York fashion trends:

Ankle_bootie_1   ANKLE BOOTS "I've been seeing all shapes, sizes, colors & styles, but especially the pointy toe and stiletto heel. Also popular are slip-on moccasin boots that are lower to the ground, with a kind of Arabic or Indian look. One person was even wearing a cowboy ankle boot with spurs a pointy uplifted toe." (Available at UrbanOutfitters.com)

Hoodie_1   HOODIES "Hoodies are hot right now. They come with really short sleeves, or all the way down to mid thigh. I've seen them where the hood is a different color. On guys' hoodies, there are a lot of graphcis.  Girls are even wearing them as a dress, or cropped, with a drawstring - and in all colors." (Hoodie - Pharmacy-Industry.com)

Gap_audrey_pant ANKLE LENGTH PANTS "Sometimes called highwaters, these look adorable paired with a ballerina flat, a loafer, or even a cropped blazer & turtleneck." (Skinny "Audrey Hepburn" black pants - Gap.com)

Shopping_marc_jacobs_layers Marc Jacobs - Fall 2006

Glam Shopping Beat column for the week of 9/4/06 - by Lesley Scott:

More layers than a layer cake...and counting. Fall is a vision of leggings, tights, skirts, vests, scarves & overcoats...all at the same time, thanks to Monsieur Marc Jacobs in particular. The good news, however, is that no one need freeze in the name of fashion this winter! Additionally, layers mean tons of different ways to customize the trend to your particular taste & style.

To make this look work, focus on balance. While a 5'10" model can pull off having every inch swathed in heavy-duty fabric, the rest of us mere mortals are somewhat less blessed. In order to look chic rather than homeless,  pick a single area to have the most bulk. A cape, cowl neck sweater & fabulously oversized winter'y hat combination couldn't be cuter, but all that fabric needs to be offset by a slim silhouette on the bottom; good options include a skinny jean with a delicate shoe in the same color or tone.  Alternatively, voluminous menswear pants with chunky platforms require a body conscious top. In both cases, balancing the bulk with a slim counterpart keeps things chic & avoids anything that might confuse bystanders with the Michelin Man.

The second secret of layers is fit: get on good terms with a reliable tailor. In particular, pay attention to hem lengths. If you're rocking a cropped pant, it should hit the bottom of your calf precisely where the leg begins to taper into the ankle. An oversized, wide-legged pant a la Chanel? Make sure the tailor measures them on you while you're in the heels you intend to wear them with.  If a sweater is meant to be slouchy, make sure it's doing the precise slouch you want while it's on your body - again, a tailor is your magic weapon in this endeavor.

Great pieces to use for a stylishly layered look:

What Started with a Passion for Fashion on Meagre Budget Blossomed into a Savvy Style Blog & Book from the Original Budget Fashionista, Kathryn Finney. FASHIONTRIBES BLOG & PODCAST INTERVIEW

PODCAST: What Started with a Passion for Fashion on Meagre Budget Blossomed into a Savvy Style Blog & Book from the Original Budget Fashionista, Kathryn Finney. FASHIONTRIBES BLOG & PODCAST INTERVIEW - MP3 File

Budget_fashionista_1

"It all started because I  was broked & married to a man who put the "f"  in frugal," explains Kathryn Finney, the fashionista behind The Budget Fashionista blog & the author of the fun & extremely readable How to be a Budget Fashionista: The Ultimate Guide to Looking Fabulous for Less. "I started the blog in 2003 as a way to share my shopping finds. The book is similar in that it shows you how to be fabulous and still have a 401K."

Some tips from Budget Fashionista Kathryn Finney on Looking Fab for Less:

  • YOU AIN'T OPRAH, DARLIN' Put an sticky paper address label on the metallic label strip of your credit cards. "I wrote on mine: 'You ain't Oprah' because I don't have her money. Another good one is Armani vs. Equity. Put it right on the credit card so you see it if you want to use it. It makes you stop and think, and adds in another step before you can use it."
  • DO YOU LOVE IT? "Only buy what you love, and  love what you buy. So many times we just buy whatever. Doing this means I have a lot fewer things in my closet, and I wear them a lot more.
  • SHOP WITH A PLAN While not an advocate of only shopping for certain items at certain times of the year, Finney advises only purchasing items which will already have a mate. "If something doesn't have at least two items to wear it with, either in your closet or in the store, don't buy it." This saves the money-wasting habit of an it-was-so-adorable-in-the-store shirt or pants still hanging, unworn with tags attached, a year later.
  • KNOW YOUR BUDGET "Don't spend if you don’t much money you have. Figure out how much you can spend and still eat."
  • KEEP A CHIC LITTLE SECRET Designer goods from consignment stores are often a fraction of their retail price. Sure, you'll still drop around $400 for a Fendi Spy bag, but that's still at least 70% off retail, and much of the time, consignment goods are in fabulous condition. "No one need know someone else owned it before."
  • WHAT'S YOUR STYLE? Focus on dressing for you, and not just on what’s trendy. Not only will not every trend be suitable, but it's better to focus on getting clothes that send the message you want people to receive about you. "Buy what looks good on you, not because it's on the Celeb that's in at the moment, or in Vogue or W. Think about where you're at, both physically and economically. I call it reality dressing." In other words, if your lifestyle neither involves - nor supports - red carpet gowns or oodles of little cocktail dresses, they probably shouldn't comprise the bulk of your wardrobe.

In parting, Finney offers this advice about dressing above your station in life...tax bracket-wise. "Really stylish people don’t focus on labels, they focus on the look. They also make sure their clothes fit perfectly.  If something is meant to be slouchy, make sure it slouches correctly. If it's tailored, get it to a tailor," she admonishes. And don't forget that less is more: "Focus on buying on one or two pieces a year – build a wardrobe...don’t buy in bulk."

Christian_dior_couture_skinny_pant Oversize_dior_shoe (Christian Dior Couture Fall 2006)

Unlike money-driven Pret-a-porter, the couture is a lab where fashion & design ideas are explored, tweaked and often followed to ofttimes outlandish extremes. And when designer like John Galliano are brave enough to go for it, interesting things come down the runway.

Unless you're a drag queen, the looks right off the couture runway aren't really feasible for real life. However, they contain vast amounts of important information about the direction of silhouettes, shapes, colors and details. In other words, pay attention to the function rather than the form.

This swashbuckling look Galliano sent down the Dior couture runway is easily adapted for the real way.  Simply pair the season's ubiquitous leggings or dark skinny jeans with a structured, tailored jacket that has rounded volume at the shoulders, sleeves and neck - and that nips in fetchingly at the waist. Details to look for: puff sleeves, a high and/or ruffled/layered neck, and bell sleeves. And weather permitting, finish it off with towering platforms that show off that snazzy pedi.

Some great options for interpreting Christian Dior couture for your non-couture life:
