She's A Lady
Yeah Yeah she’s a Lady . A big trend seen on the catwalks for Autumn and Winter 2019 was the return of ladylike dressing with a nod to the seventies era known as Bourgeois. Bourgeois gets its name from the Stylish middle class women from decades past think of style icons such as Jackie Kennedy with camel trench coat, square sunglasses, scarf and rollneck sweaters and The stylish Princess Di.

The trend of ladylike dressing also known as bourgeois was one of the biggest trends seen this season seen on the catwalks of designers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Michael Kors, Celine , Zimmermann and Chloe. Key things to takeaway from the catwalks was the return of A-line Shapes and smart tailoring with soft edges teamed with over the top blouses or capes.

The aesthetic for this trend is ladylike dressing with skirts and dresses with hemlines over the knee, a natural colour scheme, heritage prints such as checks, boucle or classic animal print but in muted colours. To get the look wear a midi length skirt or dress or soft tailored trousers in either denim, leather or a heritage print and pair with a pussybow blouse and for the outerwear either a showstopping cape or oversized blazer. For the accessories wear a scarf tied around either the neck or wrist or on the vintage style bag and for the shoes knee high boots in natural colours.
The Colour Scheme
The colour scheme for this trend is nude natural tones, such as browns, camels, creams, whites, greys and black with a touch of jewel tones such as burgundy, greens and oranges to offset the otherwise monochrome looks.
No look would be complete without accessories and accessories really make or break an look. For this trend the accessories were as ladylike as the rest of the trend. The main footwear of the season was knee high boots either in black or brown. The bags were vintage style bags in also classic colours.
