Camel coats have been around for a while and they don't show any signs of going out of fashion anytime soon. It's not hard to see why when they are such a simple and flattering colour and tend to be in warmer more structured winter coats. Finding the perfect fit and style is essential for perfecting the look, and you'll find that the basic styles most on trend now are:
1) the short masculine tailored model to be paired with jeans + sweater/turtleneck + trainers/boots.
2) The long-style version with/without belt to cinch in the waist for the creation of a nice, long, slim silhouette + heels/trainers.
Anyway, once you've found the perfect camel coat, this staple will become an easy option, which doesn't require much styling, and can be thrown over most outfits for extra warmth. The only piece of advice for a sophisticated look is just keep all colours fairly minimal, add a pop of colour in your red lips and combine it with a simple chain bag.
Are you guys fans of the camel coat? How do you wear yours? I hope you liked this post and I love hearing back from you all, so head over to my Twitter/Instagram @loulou_mail3 to let me know your thoughts. Here above I've listed a few camel-coat looks out at the moment for some inspiration, if you're looking for your own...

In the past few seasons a surge in hair accessories was to be seen, and as for hair accessories, Fall 2019 is a great season too (see my previous post: "How to style statement hair clips the It-girl way"). So after writing about bejewelled hair clips, I'm going to write about a hair accessory that has sparked my interest the most: headbands.
Anyway, if you ask every fashion girl, and the fashion business, Fall is the real start of the year. And although everybody is ready for all the layers, scarves, and yes pumpkin spice anything, what everybody is really ready for this seasons is headbands.
I’m not talking about the hard-plastic headbands your mom shoved in your hair when you were a kid. And no, we aren’t thinking Blair Waldorf either. Think something a bit more chic, if I do say so myself. Actually, the trend first caught my eye when Prada featured headbands on their Spring 2019 runway. Then, it has become popular also with royal glamour icons such as the Duchess of Cambridge, who was seen pairing this elegant accessory with several outfits, as a surrogate of a tiara for more informal occasions. 
Now, oversized, padded, and almost a hint of 80’s is in there. And if either the oversized look or the bejewelled one aren’t for you, don’t worry, a resurgence for simpler styles as well has been seen. I’m not sure about you, but if you're not willing to pay a lot of money for any hair accessory, look at the selection of my favourite models, and you'll certainly find some inexpensive options with a luxe look too.

From combat boots to cardigans, '90s-inspired trends are still very much having a moment. The beloved style era has serious staying power in fashion and beauty alike, and one particularly playful trend has picked up major steam. From bobby pins to snap clips, hair adornments are a lighthearted addition to so many looks, so it's no surprise they're a favorite among It girls right now. If you've been struggling to style hair clips the 2019 way, look no further than your favorite celebrities' Instagram feeds. Unlike butterfly clips of the '90s, the market is full of updated options that feel understated and now. Ahead, today I'm breaking down the best way to wear the nostalgic trend with ease, with the likes of a few fashion celebrities as the ultimate inspiration. 
1) Pearly Pins: even though Alex Chung knows how to nail a grungy vibe, she's a master at pulling off ultra-femme looks in the most effortless way. Offsetting this patent leather trench from her namesake brand, the model reached for a set of pearl barrettes to add a romantic touch. From hoop earrings to modern cuffs, pearls are back in a major way, so give the vintage trend a whirl with a chic clip.
2) Bold and bejewelled: since Ashley Williams launched her bedazzled bobby pins  spelling words like anxiety, paradise, and justice, It girls everywhere have been rocking glitzy barrettes that truly do speak for themselves. Hairstylist Justine Marjan recently teamed up with Kitsch to create her own take on the trend, and several celebrities have already given them their stamp of approval.
So, if you need a touch of sparkle to these gloomy October days, this simple accessories are a stylish addition that certainly will not break your budget!
