The aviator trend looks set to be huge this A/W, and the aviator jacket with shearling lining is the must-buy item of the season. I love the toughness of this look which is contrasted with the shearling lining, perfect for the dressed down look. The flying style would look great teamed with a military shirt and neutral shades.
Acne has produced a beautiful stone coloured aviator-style jacket and flying hat for A/W (below), I bought a similar vintage flying hat in Buenos Aires earlier this year. Natalie Hartley (below), from the go-to style blog, Natalie Hartley wears, has recently been sporting many fantastic pieces from the aviator trend and gives many outfit ideas. Asos.com also has more affordable pieces if you’re looking to channel the trend on the high-street.

London Fashion Week (17 – 22 September) is quickly approaching and with the release of the designer schedule a fortnight ago, I’ve begun to get really excited about what S/S 11 has in store for us.
It’s been a busy year for Swedish label Acne. Not only have they opened a flagship store in London’s Mayfair but they have also announced that they will be showing at LFW for the first time! Acne is one of my favourite labels, I have a real thing about Swedish style at the moment, and so I am really looking forward to seeing what they have in stall for us. If the S/S 11 Pre-Collection is anything to go by, it’s going to be good.

One of my favourite performers at the moment is Janelle Monáe, not only does she produce great music but also has incredible style. You may have heard her with Outcast’s Big Boi recently with the track ‘Tightrope’ (below).
However, it’s her style that I love more than anything. Monáe manages to work the androgynous look so well and in so many different forms, with masculine tux jackets, crisp white shirts, cravats and brogues.

My big dilemma though was whether I should opt for a bikini or a swimming costume to swim lengths!? Now, my thinking was that a bikini, which wins hands-down in the style stakes against my school girl speedo number, might be deemed inappropriate by fellow swimmers. So, I opted for a sensible one-piece, only to find that the whole pool was full of halter bikinis (and even a few bandeaus) leaving me scuttling in and out of the pool in shame. Next time I know which look I'll be sporting. .htm
