What We Would Wear Tuesday

This week's installment of What We Would Wear treats you to two ways to wear one of my favourite new pieces, the Côtes du Rhône Floral Comb. I seem to have a mild severe obsession with florals at the moment, especially those that transcend from summer to autumn/winter. However, I am painfully aware that not everyone appreciates the feminine and whimsy, so the second outfit has been put together with a much tougher (more wareable?) look in mind.

The Côtes du Rhône Floral Comb is an ode to the colour du jour; wine. The colour palette for Autumn/Winter is traditionally of a much deeper, richer tone than of its' Spring/Summer counterparts and the colour on the radar at the moment is a deep, plum-y burgundy. It works brilliantly with navy and animal prints, and slots in very nicely with the ever-occuring trend of '60s beauty (think Bridgette Bardot inspired feline eyes and big bouffant hair). I've chosen a beautiful babydoll dress from Topshop, paired with some killer leopard heels and lashings of eyeliner. Meow!

For the second look, I've paired the Côtes du Rhône Floral Comb with items from the New Grunge trend. Grunge appears back in fashion almost as much as animal print, but this season sees a more baroque approach. This just proves that sequins and glitter needn't be WAG-tastic if you wear them the right way. The skirt is from River Island and has been all over the fashion lips since it appeared in the lookbook back in March. Team with some AA grey marl, a khaki vest, some studs, worker boots, and a scowl Kristen Stewart would be proud of.
