Celeb Style Steal: Casey Batchelor

Casey Batchelor PS blog postOur fave glam girl Casey Batchelor was recently spotted heading to a charity event in our gorgeous Monochrome Wave Skater Dress and we think she looks amazing!

We love the classic monochrome colours against her fabulous tan and dark long locks and the super flattering puff ball shape makes her waist look even smaller than it already is! We also love how she styled the dress with red accessories to add a pop of colour.

This look is perfect for any occasion – a dinner with your other half, a christening or a night out with your girls at a classy cocktail bar.

It’s available to buy here for only £35.00 and if you’re more of an LBD kinda girl, we have the exact same dress here in black with a white trim. We can’t decide which one we love more!

Are you a fan of Casey’s look?

Michelle Keegan Style Steal Post

We just can’t resist this chic city look, worn by the fabulous Michelle Keegan! The TV beauty was recently spotted outside the ITV studios in London in this sophisticated ensemble; and here at AX Paris we’re going to show you how to recreate this look that has us all inspired.

This smart casual style is based around these grid printed monochrome trousers that are bang on trend at the moment. Every wardrobe needs a good pair of statement trousers and these are the perfect example! You’re sure to be centre of attention in our eye-catching Checked Tailored Trousers and at only £22 what is there to lose?!!

Like Michelle we’ve paired them with a classic sheer blouse although they could go with anything from a t-shirt to a cropped jumper in those colder months. We chose our Chiffon Tie Blouse Top that has bow detailing and a cinched in waist that’ll show off your figure. At only £20 it’s a must have to complete your summer work wardrobe!

We love how she’s created this feminine style whilst still keeping that glamorous edge with her choice of accessories. To finish off the look you should invest in a pair of our unique Suede Metal Toe Heels which compliment the rest of the look nicely.

Capable of pulling off any look the former Coronation Street actress proved yet again that she’s come a long way since her days on the show in this first-class outfit.

SS15 Trend: All White

SS15 Trend - All White

The colour White has been all over the catwalks recently and its set to be one of the hottest trends of the S/S15 season. Much like the LBD, the LWD is going to be a wardrobe must have and perfect for showing off that golden Summer glow. We’ve rounded up a few of our fave all white pieces that will be sure to have you Summer ready.

First up is our Feather Hem Lace Dress which is fabulous if you want to go for a statement look. The detailed crochet overlay and feather trim make this a really interesting piece and the shift shape is flattering on the figure. It can be dressed up with a pair of strappy heels or worn with some sandals for a BBQ with friends!

Next up is our Strap Detail Plain Midi Dress and this one is perfect for a night out on the town! The fitted bodycon style creates a glamorous look whilst the midi length keeps it looking classy. To make it stand out from the crowd, the cross over strap detailing around the chest area adds an interesting twist to the dress. Pair this with some heels for a complete party perfect look!

If dresses aren’t your thing, our Off The Shoulder Lace Playsuit is a great choice for that classic Summer boho babe look! It has a beautiful lace overlay and the off the shoulder style and bell bottom floaty sleeves are perfect if you want to recreate that cool and casual seventies style which is also set to be a big trend! Pair it with some wellies and a floral crown at a festival, with sandals for a casual daytime look or some heels for a night out. Its the perfect versatile piece!

Finally, we’re completely in love with our Off The Shoulder Bodycon dress. Its a classic white bodycon dress but the off the shoulder style and sweetheart neckline give it a sophisticated Hollywood Glamour look. We think this would be perfect paired with a bright lipstick, simple strappy heels and a box clutch bag!

Are you a fan of the all white look? Which is your favourite?

Celeb Style Steal: Casey Batchelor

Casey Batchelor Style Steal

We love seeing our fave celebs rocking AX Paris so we were over the moon to see gorgeous glam girl and ex Big Brother star Casey Batchelor looking amazing in our Floral Print Skater Dress for a girls night out!

The stunning navy and yellow floral print ensured all eyes were on Casey as she hit the town with her friends this weekend and the bright colours looked great against her shiny dark hair and fabulous tan (we’re not jealous at all).

We also love how feminine she looks whilst still keeping that glamorous edge she’s known and loved for! The fitted top synches her in at the waist and shows off her fabulous curves whilst the skater skirt provides a fun and girly twist! To finish off the look, she let the dress do all the talking and kept accessories to a minimum pairing it with some simple nude heels.

We think she looks absolutely fabulous and the best part is you can recreate her look for only £35.00 and its perfect for any occasion. Pair it with our Plain Strappy Heels to complete Casey’s look and let the dress do all the talking.

Do you love this dress as much as we do?

LFW: AW15 Trend Report

London Fashion Week - Trend Report

Sadly, London Fashion Week has come to an end but we’re leaving no time for the blues to kick in as we’re taking a look at some of our favourite shows over the fashion-fuelled 5 days and bringing you an exclusive of the trends to watch out for in AW15!

Some trends have undoubtedly made their return for next Autumn/Winter and rightly so! We aren’t ready to throw out our turtlenecks just yet! Want to get ahead of everyone else? Then keep reading to know all about the top trends coming next season, you heard it here first …

London Fashion Week - Structured Silhouettes

First up is ‘Structured Silhouettes’ we saw countless amounts of heavily structured garments, offering almost architectural feels to the outfits, with accentuated shoulders or flared bottoms, we love the whole masculine take on some of the pieces! Although some outfits lack in that figure-hugging style most women go for, some of these pieces are still equally as feminine with little or no shape at all! It will all be about finding balances to make your outfits womanly and structured or you could just end up looking like a cardboard box, don’t worry you’ve got months to practice!

London Fashion Week - Western Influences

Possibly one of our favourite upcoming trends is the Western Inspired pieces seen on a number of runways this LFW, the bohemian-luxe feel was the main focus of Burberry’s collection where there was an array of suede, fringe, flowing dresses and embroidered garments. There was clashing prints of florals, paisley and Aztec, metallic fabrics against matte pieces which adds more texture into each outfit. We’ll be taking some of our well-loved SS15 pieces into next season and with some layering they’ll be transformed into pieces suitable for Autumn/Winter! To complete the looks we’ll have our hair in loose curls, who says beach waves has to just be for the summer?!

London Fashion Week - Colour Co-Ordinates

Colour co-ordinating outfits has always been a thing, we know the basics of what colours work well and which ones should just NEVER be seen together! We all colour co-ordinate our everyday outfits; we might not even know we’re doing it half the time! However this trend has been slowly creeping up for a while now, especially seen on the likes of Kim Kardashian, wearing all garments of the exact same shade and she does it effortlessly! Colour matching an outfit entirely may need some more thought than usual but the finished look is guaranteed to keep you looking chic and classy. If you aren’t ready to try out colour matching, then try clashing 2 or 3 shades of the same colour in order to break things up a little!

London Fashion Week - Fabulous FurNext up on the trends to watch out for is fur! It’s a classic Autumn/Winter fabric which won’t be going out of style anytime soon, so you can’t go wrong with investing in a statement fur piece, whether it’s a coat or bag or even a top, a little fluff never hurt nobody! Obviously on the runway they’ve created pieces that we don’t think we could get away with wearing on an everyday basis, so try simplifying things and go back to basics and introduce fur into your outfits by wearing it as a scarf, then when you’re daring enough try out an oversized fur coat!

London Fashion Week - High Neck, Low Hem

Autumn/Winter would not be complete without some layering, we love how culturally accepted it is to layer these days, meaning we can pile on the knits and coats and remain looking stylish and keeping warm, it’s a win-win! The high neck and low hem trend is the perfect way to wrap up in the colder months and still look chic, this also means we can bring our turtlenecks into next season with us! If you’re aiming to achieve the minimal aesthetic for this trend, try pairing a chunky knit over a midi skirt for a relaxed vibe, tuck your hair into your sweater or style it in a low pony for the ultimate chic look!

London Fashion Week - Sixties Flashback

Old trends and styles are consistently being renovated and re-invented into modern shows and collections, we’re set to revisit the 70’s this SS15 and Jonathon Saunders confirmed that we’ll be heading back to the 60’s in AW15! Saunders collection at LFW featured high necklines, long sleeves and A-line skirts and dress typical of the swinging 60’s era! If you’re not up for embracing this trend fully, give a subtle nod to the era with a simple leather pencil skirt or a pair of kitten heels.

London Fashion Week - Lavished In Leather

Last but certainly not least is leather! Seen everywhere and on everyone, it’s a classic fabric and can be effortlessly styled by anyone! Don’t feel restricted to wearing leather only as a jacket, step outside the box and invest in a leather skirt or top, the tough texture will effortlessly add a grunge-glam look to any outfit! To complete the rock chick vibe style your hair in a bed head, grunge style and team it with some heavy black eyeliner, the finished look will be the ultimate rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic.

And there we have it, a complete round-up of some AW15 trends to keep an eye out for, we can’t wait to see what the new season will bring, especially in everyday street style!

What’s your favourite up-and-coming trend for next season?

The Oscars 2015: Best Dressed

Oscars Best Dressed Blog Post

Here at AX Paris we love a good red carpet round up so we thought we’d share our favourite looks from yesterdays Oscars. With a complimentary mix of eye popping colours, nudes, and statement monochrome, in figure hugging or princess gown silhouettes, the nominees certainly didn’t disappoint.

Never one to blend in with the crowd, best actress nominee and our favourite Jenny from the block, Jennifer Lopez stunned in a plunging Elie Saab nude gown, with embellished detailing and layers of tulle cementing her mark on this year’s best dressed lists.

Another Jennifer rocking the nude trend was our favourite girl next door Jennifer Aniston who opted for a more figure hugging embellished Versace gown. It’s hard to decide which Jennifer we loved the most but we can definitely agree they both killed it!

Rosamund Pike killed her way into the best actress nominees with her stellar performance in Gone Girl, and she continued to slay it on the red carpet! She was wowing AX Paris, and the rest of the world for that matter in a rose red lace Givenchy gown, showcasing that tiny waist and those impressive pins with a sky high split and corset detailing.

Let’s not forget our monochrome loving stars Sienna Miller and Reese Witherspoon. Both stunned in their on-trend gowns. Sienna opting for an all black Oscar De La Renta gown straight off the catwalk and Reese chose a monochrome Tom Ford gown which showcased her amazing figure.

Other impeccably dressed stars of the night were Jennifer Hudson in a simple yellow strapless gown by Romona Kevezal, Scarlett Johansson in a plunging green number by Versace, and girl of the moment, 50 Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson in a sultry Saint Laurent.

By far one of AX Paris’s favourite looks of the night comes from the always stylish Emma Stone, wearing custom Elie Saab. We love the beading and sheer panel detailing throughout this long sleeved gown and the golden green shade compliments her pale complexion perfectly making her signature red hair pop. You go Emma!

We’d love to here who was you best dressed at the 2015 Oscars last night!
