So.. This leggings trend that has been going on for the past 5 years seems to be staying and not going anytime soon..

I quite like leggings because they are easy to wear the type of item you don’t need to iron just put on and go.. thats my kind of fashion on a lazy late day.

However whilst having a discussion with my friends she believed that leggings shouldn’t be worn without a long top or dress as it is pretty much a thin piece of material that doesn’t cover much. I have to agree with her on the cheaper imitations of leggings that I have seen whilst out and about in London which are really bad and terribly thin and next to nothing..In the light almost turning transparant.

YUCK..

However in my opinion the thicker leggings can be really cute sexy and such a great way to show off slim toned legs.

Paired with a cute set of heels black leggings can look top model.

Since this leggings trend has been around for such a long time the designers are trying to switch it up with more unique creations.

Leggings are versatile and now that you can get such crazy and unique designs the styles are endless.

Its great when you get to see celebrities just walking about minding their own business and running errands like the rest of us. Today we are positing a few of the celebs that were doing just that in New York City.

The big apple is a great place to catch random actors and A list celebrities.. you never really know who is behind the next pair of large sunglasses..

Today we have..:

 

Sarah Jessica Parker

The sex and the city star is always about NYC looking rather casual in jeans and boots.. She popped into Duane Reade for some much needed essentials.

Our British beauty Lily Cole was seen leaving the Bowery Hotel at the Upper East Side looking fresh faced without make up in a large oversized cardigan.

The last spotting we decided to tell you about is Olivia Palermo, in a lovely coral peach coat perfect for spring as the weather starts t turn and blue skies are above.

Olivia+Palermo+seen+walking+dog+BrooklynRipped jeans and a dog in tow its the perfect accessory.. Cute!

I personally love jackets, I love how they can instantly make you look smart when paired with a tidy skirt or suite trousers and make you smart casual when matched with jeans. If cut the right way the jacket can really be a statement piece and we have done a few searches to come up with a few of our favourite on sale at the moment.

Belstaff Jacket

A brand that is a new one brought to our attention due to their luxury linens and shapes in jackets and coats.

Very military inspired the double breasted button and contemporary leather trimmings make the jacket striking whilst the moss green colour can be combined with a multitude of other colours.green belstaff jacket

Timeless and can be worn throughout the approaching spring, summer and autumn weathers- perfect for the approaching months.

Retailing at £699.00

Joseph 

This powerful jacket really creates a showpiece item for any plain pair of jeans- again very military styled – enter a room in this and you will dazzle and shine! The jacket is available from the Joseph site for £695.00.

Belmain Pink Jacket

We chose this solely for the colour, its not often you get to see a pink jacket thats actually..cool!

belmain pink jacket

This Belmain luxury cotton silk blend with the ultra structured silhouette and ice cream hue and sexy curve enhancing layers can be a fab choice for fashion lovers. Retailing at £1,500 match with a plain pair of jeans and heels.

Donna Karen

Donna Karen asymmetric black jacket is our favourite due to its shape and diamond embellishment  last year we wrote about the popularity of drop hem dresses and this coat matches that theory. This is certainly a dressed up jacket compared to the rest and the collection we chose. The drop hem also means it slims your waist and reduces your hips.

So Justin Bieber has been in the news a lot this past week, what with his birthday that ended horribly with it closing due to underage guests, his tour visiting London arriving 2 hours late for his angry screaming fans and random freak outs at the paparazzi. So the teenager has to be in the top clothing and accessories whilst out and about.

Happy New Year all you wonderful Sharp N Chic readers, we are back this year and with vengeance, reading the emails we have been getting asking for more stories and celeb fashion we can’t refuse. So January its here and so are we! so lets get started!!

 

Winter Boots

So its currently about 12 degrees in London which is not too bad, you can leave the house and be ok with a light jacket if it stays like this for the remainder of winter we will be happy however if the weather is to take a turn for the worst like most years when Feb comes round then we have the shoes for you to get through the cold snow weather.

These boots are about keeping warm, staying safe and looking cute!

Lets go..

The Coach Frye harness boot.

winter boots by coach fur

The coach boot is exceptional luxury but with the fur trim it will be sure to leave your toes warm and comfy in the coldest parts of the world, as well as a low heel and rugged sole the boot will protect you from slipping on ice when walking from the car to the shops!

coach fur coyote boots

The limited edition boot captures the iconic Frye Harness boot with warmth and home comfort of soft coyote furr and pure leather on the boot.

We like these boots as we do like a bit of fur especially when it gets really cold out, it always looks really cute and snow bunny-esk! an

Plus the ruggedness of the boot keeps it contemporary and hard! Whenever I wear my boots I always feel slightly untouchable as I walk the streets of London, a certain confidence and air just overwhelms me as I stomp around so you have got to love a rugged boot!

The boot can be purchased from the store Coach for £1,300 / $1,800 

 

Tivoli by Sorel

geek chic warm boot

A bit of Geek Chic with these babies!

Boots at the calf are cool for running errands so are great if your out and about, these in particular are fab as they have a fleece fur inside so your feet will feel as though they are surrounded by sheep on any cold snowy day. Further more if the heavens do decide to open the rain will not leave your feet wet either! Warm feet warm heart! and in these Tivoli’s by Sorel your feet will certainly remain warm dry and in fashion!

cool winter boots sorel tivoli

They are lightweight and sleek with 100g of insulation protecting you from the cold weather they can be purchased directly from the site found here  at £155.00 the boots provide a great mix of fashion, coolness, warmth and a very healthy price!

Ugg Australia

sand ugg boot

Everyones favourite boot straight from down under had to be on the list and if I am honest, Ugg boots tend not to really do it for me, perhaps due to the large number of fakes out there but they tend to seem very warn in and abused on most people! However in looking into the brand a bit further it gave me the possibility of learning about these new design Ugg boots with the three buttons which does switch it up a bit and highlight that it is in fact different from the thousands of Uggs walking down the road.

Ugg boots, or at least the traditional Ugg boots are not so great for the wet weather but likt the tivoli they are made with a warm fleece which protects the feet from the cold elements its a boot that is for comfort, not hiking a mountain or battling the spring showers.

ugg boot fur

These boots can also achieve multiple looks by folding down to reveal the elegant fur trim or having high up to keep the calves warm!

2 for 1 isn’t bad when it comes to boots!

At £220.00 it isn’t the most expensive boot for your buck

 

Bottega Veneta Boxcalf boot

high shine boot bottega

High shine society in these calf height boots!

These would have to be our most formal boots we have on the showcase, these can easily be worn into the office on those really cold days, smart and chic always works well and even better when it protects you from the elements!

Bottega Veneta shine calf box boots

The boot made from calf leather can be found here for £740.00

If you have not noticed sneakers are currently the way forward for a lot of celebrities that are doing the natural casual relaxed look at the moment so we had to post on the Giuseppe Zanotti italian shoe genius and the creator of these dazzling sneakers retailing at $600 a pair

The silver metallic reptile skinned shoe is not only eye catching but a true modern day “I here to kick butt”  shoe. With bright neon green accents and hints these shoes are sure not to be missed by anyone.

The zip is a major focal point in these shoes as when unzipped it releases even more of the accented colour.

The shoe is also available in the a black and silver version which has been popular with singer Cassie.

Its been a while since we last wrote about Queen B, but tonight we had to come out with something after seeing her on the BET awards in a beautiful stunning bright yellow high leg split gown which she wore to receive her award for best female R&B artist.

She sat next to her husband Jay Z whom sat next to Kanye West and co during the ceremony.

She did look ravishing supposedly shedding 60 lbs of baby weight after giving birth to baby Blu.

The dress was a satin blend so no doubt any lumps and bumps would have shown and the Queen had no ounce of chub to show!

She’s done well to retract back the so-called weight!

The dress by Stéphane Rolland Couture,  showcased her slim figure and really stood out from the crowd.

Her shoes were Givenchy Guerra Heel in Pink retailing at $1,100 available in a range of shades and subtle texture differences

She looks lovely seems like she is currently on top of her world..

You know that feeling when you walk past someone, be it on the tube, whilst walking down the street, in a shop or just in a small confined area and you take in a great big whiff of their perfume and think “oohhhh she smells nice” We all love that feeling, and the other day a randomer happened to say those exact words to me and it is the foundations of this post on my top 5 perfumes at the moment.

 

5.

Kimora Lee Simmons- Fabulosity

 

Yes- the queen of fabulosity has generated a really beautiful scent, I am never a fan of big celebrity endorsed perfumes but this one is actually really nice- and the perfume the randomer commented on last week. With such a good price tag I lovingly squirted a lot of the perfume over my clothes, hair and my “aura” which is spraying the air and walking through!

A good 6 or 7 squirts did the trick to create my beautiful surrounding of smell!

The scent is sweet lovely and at £18.00/ $25 its worth the beautiful glow and the oohh she smells nice face you get whilst walking in close proximity to any stranger!

fabulosity kimora perfum

 

4.Dune

This count down is prooving very hard as my perfumes all mean the world to me! A slight dramatisation but they are all pretty nice smells that I adore.

So choosing number 4 as Dune by Dior, came pretty hard.

Its a classic perfume, very rich, wealthy scent which warms to you as you wear it, I find it to be long lasting throughout the day.. It is a perfume that I wear on realy nice occasions as it is simply delightful.

Due to the branding of the Dior it retails at £37.00 however you will only need a few squirts of the perfume to get the desired “mmm” effect.

 

dune dior perfume3. Tresor by Lancom

 

Tresor is another favourite- very very similar to the effects of choice number 4, Dune- wealthy, warm smell which everyone always responds well to. It’s longevity and distinct nature of the perfume really makes it a favourite of mine. Retailing at £40 and up  it would be a good choice for yourself or as a gift to your mother, girlfriend, other half or friend but you only need a few spritz to make yourself smell as though you have bathed in roses.

tresor perfume

2. Cartier Delices,

I was given this perfume as a gift which was rather surprising as I had not really noticed Cartier for perfume but on pumping the first spray it was music to my nose! a melody to my nose and really just a sweet perfume, so sweet I wanted to eat it ( of course I wouldn’t in fear of death or at the very least a very bitter mouth) but this was a very sweet perfume- its young its fruity and really  a nice choice for going out for drinks or the cinema-  £35.00 a bottle.

1. Gucci Rush

has to be my old time favourites- one of the first perfumes I ever purchased as a young teenage- at one stage I felt it was my own signature scent! A good friend once told me when ever he smelt the Gucci Rush smell it instantly made him think of me.. I guess that shows how much I chose to wear it- Instant love, only thing with it- is that it is a bit on the popular side that almost everyone has worn it and I guess for my friend he would smell it on a lot of people and I guess think of me a lot..

gucci rush perfume smells nice

Again due to branding it is not the cheapest of perfumes retailing at £29.00 and up.

 

 

It is amazing how smells can conjure up emotions and thoughts and people- so its important you get the smell correct- No one wants to be known for smelling bad HA! Any one of these perfumes will leave beautiful thoughts in a strangers mind about how amazing you smell.

So stop buy the stores and pick your favourite today..

On my daily prowl of the shoes online I happened to stop by one of my favourite shoe designers Mr Atwood. I witnessed the latest in his new stunning collection of shoes- and I simply had to inform the world of them! This isn’t the first post and devotion to the Atwood and is not to be the last- but they are simply too good to miss! I think his shoes are ooze femininity and appeal to the masses.

In the collection there are some marvellous shoes but these are the top three of the beauties I loved and paid close attention to today.

3)Aliyza Open Toe Pump Red:

 

These red Dorothy “There’s no place like home” fusion mix with a little tribal African inspired flavour really captures the eye and the heart! With the Aliyza open toe pump. I simply Loved the colourful and vibrant feel that the shoe exudes and how great would these look with a simple summer dress!Simply Divine Darling! Retailing at $1,185.00 A certain investment into the shoe collection.

2)Neela in Black/Cappuccino Nude.

These Jack sparrow pirate jacket inspired shoes are also on the must have shoes list this month. Loving the sling back and peep toe ideal for the approaching summer days and the late warm summer nights- be it a friends BBQ or outdoor party these shoes really are statement pieces for an outfit. Turning something plain into that extra edge. RRP $915.00

1)Glamazon T Strap in Pomice

Oh yes- GLAMAZON indeed it is!- No doubt wearing these Will make you feel untouchable, on top of the world and very very sexy. Ankle cuffs are very cute, I like to call jewellery for the ankle and with a short flowing dress or even a pair of skinny jeans it just WORKS. The Beige colour means it can be worn with practically anything and the peep toe makes it perfect for the summer months. The Glamazon is my favourite of the three because of the power these shoes have- amazing that an item could have power but these certainly give the impression of presence and glory. Who run the world? women in great shoes!! $1,350

It appears as if Miley has stripped off her demons as she reveals a new slim svelte and happy figure as she was spotted leaving a pilates class in West Hollywood (LA) today. She has recently tweeted about her weight loss claiming it was because she is going gluton free however nutritionists claim this is just a fake answer and will in fact cause weight gain- we all know she must be on a type of diet that doesn’t involve eating- Atkins or equivalent clearly cutting carbs and exercise I would guess is her method.

Its not particularly easy to loose weight so my hats off to her it has left her looking back on form healthy and sane!

I rather like this look she has adopted the skull jumpsuit and round shades is rather cute- her accessories and black boots are simple and cool. She at last looks like a happy healthy 19 year old! what do you think? good summer sun outfit?
