  • How to wear: the cape blazer

    Over the past year Anna Wintour has given a new lease of life to the off the shoulder coat look – paving the way for the rise of the ‘cape’. From on the catwalk at Ralph Lauren, to on the shoulders of style queen Miroslava Duma; the cape has become the staple item of the season and the trend is very much here to stay!

    Capes are all about being bold - transforming the most simple of outfits into a real head turning ensemble. Not to mention it is a great way to layer up in the temperamental British weather!

    Lydia Rose Bright is a super fan of our capes, seen recently in the Khaki Collarless Cape Coat. Partnered with a zip front LBD and stiletto heels, the TOWIE star was effortlessly elegant ahead of her night out in Camden. The khaki cape oozes sophistication, whilst tending to the need for practicality with its cut out arms for an uber tailored aesthetic.


    Lydia previously rocked the androgynous look on ITV This Morning in our Navy Collarless Cape Blazer, matching Navy Crossover D-Ring Peg Leg Trousers and a crisp white shirt. We also spotted Miss Bright wowing in the Black & White Distorted Stripe Collarless Cape Blazer and Black & White Distorted Stripe Print Wide Leg Culottes, teamed with a red lip and super sleek locks.

    Our Black & White Distorted Stripe Collarless Cape Blazer is a perfect mix of sass and class, so there is no wonder Denise Van Outen also opted for the same unstoppable matching duo at the 50 Shades of Grey premiere last month.

    Katie Price showcased her love for the cape looking ever so chic alongside Lady Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, at the Cheltenham Races in our Navy Collarless Cape Blazer, proving you can still look totally trendy in a cover up designed for cooler temperatures. Michelle Keegan strutted her way to stylishness in our Black Collarless Cape Blazer in a recent all black everything outfit. Jessica Wright also made a statement in our stunning Stone Collarless Cape Blazer and Stone Fold Detail Tailored Shorts combo.


    A major plus for the cape is its versatility. Paired with tailored pants, shorts or culottes it can be dressed up with a pair of heels for a smart evening look, or dressed down with some super cool slides for a mid day lunch date. A sleek leather tote or a cute fluffy clutch is also a perfect way to add your own personality to the mix!

    Whether you are looking to up your outfit sophistication, or are daring to bare a little more skin as Spring slowly begins to creep in – the Lavish Alice cape is perfect for you! Fix up, look sharp today and grab this season’s must have item on our dedicated Cape section.

  • Lavish Alice at London Fashion Week

    As London fashion week comes to a close, we look back on the opening weekend; where not all eyes were on the designer collections, but the attendees themselves! It seems fashion’s finest are loving the latest collection from Lavish Alice, and what better way to showcase their love than at the biggest event in the British fashion calendar!


    The Khaki Collarless Cape Coat proved to be a firm favourite amongst fashionistas. Blogger babe Sandra Haglesam aka 5 Inch and Up paired the structured statement piece with a cream co-ord; whilst Rosie Fortescue of MIC teamed the timeless tailoring with our Black Eyelet Detail Lace Up Scallop Mini Dress, boasting of its “amazing neckline”. The edgy LBD, with hints of Alexander Wang AW15, turned heads as Rosie completed the look with voluptuous curls and bared her enviable pins ahead of the Julien Macdonald show. During the opening weekend the pair stood as Lavish Alice veterans, taking over our Instagram and Twitter accounts - giving us all things front row goss!

    Georgia May Foote also made sure she was the centre of attention, stepping out in two on trend pieces from Lavish Alice. She kick started the first day of LFW in our super sultry White Crossover Bralet Bodycon Midi Dress; later changing up her previous look to ooze elegance in our Black Floaty Cape Dress and slicked back hair.


    But it wasn’t just the celebs who wanted in on our hot off the rail items; a list of blogging royalty also took to the streets around Somerset house opting for the fashion forward pieces. Olivia Laura, Marsha Campbell aka London Tall Girl and Gemma Talbot aka What’s In Her Wardrobe all rocked our Black & White Distorted Stripe Collarless Cape Blazer. What’s In Her Wardrobe also donned the matching Black & White Distorted Stripe Tailored Shorts with a black roll neck and thigh high black boots, finishing off the monochrome look.


    Hannah Whiting of Too Much Is Not Enough blogging fame and Louise O’Reilly of Style Me Curvy, both wowed in our Navy Collarless Cape Blazer. Hannah chose the matching Navy Crossover D-Ring Peg Leg Trousers to tailor her torso whilst Louise opted for the figure flattering Navy Crossover Shorts giving street style a whole new meaning!

    We also spotted LOOK magazine’s Gemma Gow effortlessly putting her own stamp on our Blush Sleeveless Duster Coat with a crisp white shirt, whilst Label PR’s Sophie Allen stylishly kept warm in our Marble Print Scuba Sweater.

    With super sleek tailoring, monochrome prints and heavenly LBD's, it’s no surprise celebrities and bloggers alike wear Lavish Alice to style their way to LFW stardom.


    We’re thinking of copying a few ensembles ourselves - if you don’t mind ladies?!


    London Fashion Week exceeded all expectations on the SS15 catwalks. There was a plethora of inspiring pieces - from 3D blooms at Simone Rocha to sequin pasties at Tom Ford - leaving us in serious need of a wardrobe re-vamp! To make things a little more plain sailing in the style stakes, we have selected key-trend pieces from our SS15 collection with advice on how to style them this spring/summer. The nautical trend will be a chic spring option this year, with a heavy stripe focus, most famously seen at Victoria Beckham. Monochrome stripes are an easy to wear nod to the trend and appear on various pieces in the new collection, including culottes, short-suits and crop tops.

    STYLE TIP: Combining the monochrome striped blazer and shorts with a simple crop top (also hot for SS15) puts a chic new spin on the co-ord trend.

    The 70’s trend was un-missable on the catwalks - from Tommy Hilfiger's retro fashion festival to Henry Holland's groupie girl tribute. A key trend within this story was strong floral prints - as seen at Celine, Marni, Marchesa and Simone Rocha. A favourite look from Lavish Alice Spring 15 is the floral bralet and skirt co-ord. This new take on a Lavish Alice classic, incorporate’s the trend of lace detailing while adding a soft feminine touch to the sharp, tailored look of the new collection.

    STYLE TIP: If you’re going to rock the 70’s trend we say go hard or go home – wear with a statement red lip and a frizzed-out mane a-la Marques Almeida… say no to normcore!

    Lavish Alice spring:summer 2015 trends

    Throughout the collection there are subtle hints to the popular ‘Military Utility’ trend. Strong details on key pieces include large patch pockets and silver visible zips – these worked seamlessly with Lavish’s basic asthetic of soft tailoring for a strong, sharp, turned-out look. The sand trench is a stand out piece and is one of the key products influenced by this look, as well as the black pocket peplum dress which, was heavily influenced by Australian designer, Josh Goot.

    STYLE TIP: This stunning sand trench will look just as good dressed down as dressed up – just add a pair of fashion forward thigh-high boots and you’re all set!


    Emily Cocklin of Elaina Grace, shows us how to rock metallic fabrics in our Nude & Silver Metallic Abstract Print Tailored Blazer and Trouser co-ord. Set a style challenge by Motel Rocks, Emily turned a white cut out swimsuit into a super sleek outfit, fit to be worn by the fashion elite. Known for her minimal casual style, Emily added in a pair of animal print skate shoes and left her tousled locks down to really complete this look. If you wanted to opt for a less casual look, why not swap the swimsuit for a crisp white shirt like our White Double Layer Shirt matched with a pair of White Ankle Strap Court Shoes, you’ll be sure to turn heads.

    What to wear for autumn/winter 2014.

     We’ve entered that transitional period of ‘no longer summer, yet not quite winter’ and with it comes a spell of awkward days to try and dress appropriately for. Unpredictable rain showers and a change in temperature on a seemingly hourly basis is just another factor to be taken into consideration when choosing your outfit of a morning. To help you along and take the frustration out of staring blankly at an increasingly uninspiring and impractical wardrobe, we at Lavish Alice have put together some on-trend outfits with advice on how to wear them at this time of year.

    What to wear for autumn/winter 2014

    The Mustard Roll Neck Cut-Out Detail Cropped Sweater is the perfect piece for weather that’s neither warm nor particularly cold. The cotton fabric and looser fit is comfortably cool yet the roll neck detail will keep you snug, and you can always wear this over a cami or t-shirt for extra warmth. Another versatile item is the Black and Cream Contrast Tapered Leg Jumpsuit, as you know jumpsuits are still at the top of the most wanted list and they look just as good dressed down as they do dressed up. Team with a long red cardigan and some heeled ankle boots for an instant autumnal look.

    A favourite at Lavish Alice is the Grey & Black Structured Long Sleeve Collar Cuff Dress, an ideal piece for winter in a colour that you cannot go wrong with. Fitted to the waist with a skater skirt bottom, this is undeniably smart yet feminine. Wear with a pair of fashion forward thigh boots and a statement necklace. Possibly the most important part of your wardrobe for the shift in weather is a go-to jacket. Our Black Collarless Cape Blazer is the ultimate style to smarten up an evening look, whilst the White and Grey Grid Print Duster Coat will see you through the crisp days of fall.

    Winter need not be drab, take a look at our New In for even more inspiration.

    We’ve spotted Made in Chelsea’s very own Lucy Watson showing us how to work the pastel trend for autumn! It’s time to forget about the LBD and opt for the LBBD, little baby blue dress that is! Lucy Watson looked stunning in our Powder Blue Cropped Mini Dress, as she headed to One Marylebone to celebrate the launch of Fearne Cottons SS15 collection for that kicked off London Fashion Week!

    Reunited with her best friend Stephanie Pratt, who has recently just been evicted from the Big Brother house, wore an equally icy-blue combo. The pair were definitely not to be missed as they wowed onlookers in their pastel ensembles at the pre-London fashion week event. Lucy teamed the tiered powder blue thigh skimming dress with a pair of contrast red, black and white printed heels. She added a black leather jacket and a silver chain embellished shoulder bag, to give more of that rock chick look she is known for. Going for a liner flicked feline eye, Lucy kept her make-up simple, her brunette locks were left down in a sleek middle parting to let the outfit do all the talking!
    The event was one not to be missed! With stars such as her mother-in-law Jo Wood as well as presenter Lilah Parsons, DJ Sara Cox and Made In Chelsea star Cheska Hull, it was a great start to London Fashion Week. Fearne's collection doesn’t launch until the 13th of January, but fans caught a glimpse of the SS15 line at a circus themed showcase. With bold  summer colours and luxurious fabrics, Fearne describes her collection as, “all about having fun and making you feel empowered and at your best”. Earlier in the day Fearne attended a photocell where she was seen in an eye popping pink dress, stood next to two models styled in dipped hem dresses and rocky fishnet tights with socks.
    We know what we’ll be wearing this weekend! Throw those drab little black dresses out of your wardrobe and step out in this little blue number - steal the stars style and stand out like Lucy.

    Caroline of Burkatron gave a whole new meaning to the phrase 'casual chic,' when she rocked up in our White Collarless Blazer. Teaming the timeless jacket with a slouchy tee, boyfriend ripped knee jeans and New Balance trainers, Caroline stayed cool and comfy without loosing any fashion points! Opting for a funky oversized spotted clutch, really set this outfit apart from other day-to-day wears. Describing the jacket as a 'knock out' piece, I'm sure Caroline will agree this blazer will see you right through from summer until winter, year after year! 



    As you've probably already worked out, celebrities are a massive fan of our brand. We've had the likes of Fearne Cotton, Millie Mackintosh and Mollie King wearing our exclusively designed pieces. So it came as no surprise that the gorgeous TOWIE star Jess Wright headed out to London's newly-opened private members' club Stamp, with boyfriend Ricky Rayment in the spring/summer 14' must-have co-ord set! Stepping out in the White Split Back Crop with matching White Sheer Insert Midi Skirt, Jess styled her hair in loose, bouncy curls swept to one side to reveal her minimalist makeup with a ruby red lip. Styling the white set with a nude clutch and matching peep toe heels, Jess shown off her tanned complexion after her recent trip to Marbella!
