Dancer, model and blogger Danielle Peazer of IdleLane.com is our September Style Blogger Council member ready to get judging your style in the fashionista style stakes this month! Find out about what trends she’ll be rocking this season, which may pop-megastar is following her on Twitter and what she thinks makes people stand out from the crowd, to see if you can catch her eye on the Shopcade app!

What’s on your shopping list this season?

Moving into A/W I’m on the look out for cosy knitwear, it’s so vital when the weather gets colder!

What do you think is the thing that makes people’s style really stand out?

I think people’s style stands out when they’re truly comfortable in what they’re wearing and are happy in their outfit. It’s an added confidence that comes naturally.

What trends, if any are you loving this season?

I’ve loved the amount of lace overlays that have been on trend. I’ve got a few pieces and they always catch my eye when I’m out shopping.

Who are your fave designers?

I love Reformation and Sandro but for high end designers as well as Saint Laurent, Givenchy and Burberry for their leather jackets!

Best high street brands?

I’m a massive fan of Zara and Topshop. I also love Monki and love to shop online at Missguided and Asos.

Whose style do you admire?

I love Ashley Madekwe’s style and Naya Riviera’s sharp look that she always has. I love Vanessa Hudgens and wish I could pull off the boho look as well as she does!

Have you ever had a fashion faux pas?

I’ve had a few yeah! I used to own this faux fur leopard print coat that didn’t suit me at all but I tried to make it work – I looked terrible!

What’s your favourite piece in your wardrobe atm?

I recently bought a linen mac from Zara. It’s calf length and I loved it so much in beige that I bought the exact same one in black!

What item could you not live without? Fashion/Beauty item…

I couldn’t live without my Mac lip conditioner – it’s better than Vaseline but not as sticky as lip gloss. And it comes in a few different shades too.

In the second of our curator specials, Yuen Lim gives us the lowdown on faux fur this season. With celebs like Fearne Cotton channeling this trend, we reckon it’s here to stay.

Over to you, Yuen…

 

Put aside that coat or jacket – faux fur is a trend that is taking the winter season by storm. What I love about this trend is that it makes a statement on its own and keeps you warm – what more can you want?!

Either go subtle with hints of faux fur on your outer wear, or go all out with whole faux fur gilets or vests. The best part about this trend is that you can simply throw it on for a luxurious, couture look without trying very hard at all. That’s your lazy day sorted! Oh and, no animals were harmed in the process 😉

Whilst creating my Faux Fur list on Shopcade, I was thinking about ways to incorporate something unique into my wardrobe or closet that is still season appropriate. Of course, the perfect addition was something that is out of the ordinary, puts you as the center of attention and most importantly, prevents you from getting frostbite.

With the faux fur trend, it may not seem like it, but it is in actual fact, super versatile. You can style it two ways – either keep it simple and minimal for a casual outing, or as a cover up over a glittery, glamorous party dress.
