Hey Fashion Angels! Now that we’re moving to a new season, there’s going to be a lot of A/W 11 trend reports on the blog which I can’t wait to share with you all. First up is the 40’s trend. Yes RV Dolls, the ladylike sophisticated look will be an addition to your style file come September!

Think Mad men, think Grace Kelly. The 40’s trend sees us wearing pencil skirts, faux fur, leather gloves, pussy blouses and tea dresses. Acessorizing with pearls wouldn’t be a stretch when sporting this ever-so-feminine style of dressing. Give Designers Gucci and Louis Vuitton all the credit for resurrecting this prominent fashion era with a handful of key items from the 40’s for their A/W 11 runway shows.

Louis Vuitton goes for a classic style with a simple tea dress paired with edgy ankle boots and leather gloves. Take note of the ‘no-make-up’ look for next season. Gucci contrasts heavily with berry lips (a signature look for fall) and a mix of pussy blouses, thigh-high boots, satchel and a fur. Start with this trend if you’re up for a vintage glamour look for winter.

The best part is we could all pick out some of these pieces from our wardrobes already! A Style Tip for you: Wear two or three key items from this look to successfully nail the 40s trend. I’ll recommend a pussy blouse, a pencil skirt and a faux-fur cover-up! Lastly, check out my DIY option for pussy blouse. It’s a steal!
