Eco-Hedonism Trends for AW12

Creating the "Eco-Hedonism" look is imperative this coming season and with these handy hints its easy to do....

What is Eco-Hedonism? It is a dramatic yet subtle look displayed in your style. Creating a mixture of fabrics and textures in an autumnal colour palette. Adding wooden and natural accessories to your look along with feather and faux fur textures.

Tip 1 - Think grunge, heavy tweeds, faux fur trims and rugged textures such as pleats and vintage leathers

Tip 2 - Dark colours and muted tones make up this look, adding berry and claret tones along with natural shades for variety

Tip 3 - Prints can be mixed with tonal colours but these must be kept subtle, block colours are still big, add wooden and organic natural accessories such as soft silks, leather and shearlings to create a multi texture effect

Tip 4 - Layers are key, for example wear a leather jacket with a faux fur gilet over the top, Dr Martens and patterned leggings. Introduce a selection of wooden bangles or a statement wood necklace to complete a great daytime look.
