ASOS: NEW DROP: CLI CLI BY CLIO PEPPIATT

There’s nothing we love more than when a high-fash designer makes a more affordable diffusion line – and that’s just what Clio Peppiatt has done for us for AW18. The on-the-rise London designer has created a capsule collection inspired by her dreamy main line, which is available exclusively at ASOS. We’re loving every single piece.

Serving all the fun your wardrobe needs right now, the collection is an explosion of bold colour, statement details and some nice 90s throwback moments. Oh, and there are serious crafty vibes too, as you can see from this <span class=”woR”>denim</span><span class=”woD”>Denim[1] is a sturdy cotton warp-faced[2] twill textile in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads. This twill weaving produces the familiar diagonal ribbing of the denim that distinguishes it from cotton duck (a linen canvas).</span> mini skirt . Clio is known for her embroidery and we’ve fallen hard for the tiny hearts sewn into this number. Pair it with the mesh cloud-print top and some chunky ankle boots.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any cuter, this heart-print <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> appears just in time for party season. Plus, we know it’s only November, but this has got dream Valentine’s Day getup written all over it, too. Go full-on Baby Spice with platforms, a faux-fur coat and some sparkly clips.

There’s also a quirky nod to the Western trend you’re not going to want to miss: if Carrie Bradshaw was feeling a cowboy moment we think she would have been very into this embroidered shirt. It’s born to be worn with your fave straight-leg <span class=”woR”>jeans</span><span class=”woD”>Jeans are trousers typically made from denim or dungaree cloth. Often the term “jeans” refers to a particular style of pants, called “blue jeans,” which were invented by Jacob Davis in 1871[1] and patented by Davis and Levi Strauss on May 20, 1873. Originally designed for cowboys and miners, jeans became popular in the 1950s among teenagers, especially members of the greaser subculture.</span> and some cowboy boots. We’re digging this beret too; it’s the perfect alternative to a beanie. The brooch is the (literal) cherry on top.

From form-fitting dresses to standout boots, celebrate your individuality with the visionary’s inclusive, unisex range that’s exclusive to ASOS.

After being turned away by fashion schools, Smith went ahead and started up his label back in 2010 regardless. Since then, he has built up an impressive following for his rule-breaking designs that celebrate the fearlessness and unapologetic self-expression of those who wear them.

ASOS Magazine sat down with the entrepreneur to discuss the ways he’s making waves across the fashion industry. Read a snippet below and catch the full interview in the latest issue of the magazine, available here.

On what his brand stands for…
Confidence and being completely unapologetic in who you are. It’s always about accentuating the body and this concept collection will reinforce that in an affordable and attainable way. There are so many different words I could throw out: self-love, self-respect, sex appeal, feminine, luxurious…
On working with ASOS…
I’ve had the creative freedom to do anything I want. The categories are incredible – I’ve always dreamt of doing <span class=”woR”>shoes</span><span class=”woD”>A shoe is an item of footwear intended to protect and comfort the human foot while doing various activities. Shoes are also used as an item of decoration. The design of shoes has varied enormously through time and from culture to culture, with appearance originally being tied to function.</span>, bags, belts, glasses and socks.

Novelty bomber jackets are a signature and everyone knows me for a good body suit. I’ve done shoes on my own but I’m offering them here in a new way – the boot’s taller, the strap sandal in satin… Not identical but similar to the luxury line.

MISSGUIDED:the pay day edit

We’re not quite sure how it’s basically Christmas already, but with the colder weather well and truly here, we’re ready to celebrate autumn! What better way than with a whole new wardrobe?!

Satin Shirts

When winter properly hits, pair yours with super skinny jeans and heeled boots for the perfect daytime-drinks-could-turn-into-a-pub-quiz-kinda-night look.

Cropped Hoodies

Autumn days basically mean curling up under a blanket and catching up on all the best tv shows. You can’t do that without an outfit that’s also acceptable for running to the shop for chocolate in… Enter: Hoodies. Hooded sweatshirts are our casual wear wardrobe hero and right now it’s a cropped length that’s getting our attention, à la Gigi.

Pastel Tailoring

Give your <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> the night off ‘cause pastel tailoring is having a serious moment, and it looks like Emily Ratajkowski approves too – Her millenial pink look is seriously on style. Nail two trends at once with a checked pastel co-ord, or go for pastel colour-blocking in tailored style separates for workwear that can see you through to after work drinks too. Winner.

Chunky Trainers

If there’s one pair of <span class=”woR”>shoes</span><span class=”woD”>A shoe is an item of footwear intended to protect and comfort the human foot while doing various activities.

Wear yours with mom jeans like Hailey Baldwin, or with a tiny party dress instead for a cool-girl look for your next big night out.

Sequin Dresses

Okay, okay we know it’s still months until party season but we’ve already started browsing what we could potentially wear to the work Christmas party. It’s never too early, right? Sequin dresses are big news for the festive season, but we’re more than happy to test them out on some other big nights out in the run-up! So, wear yours with metallic heeled sandals.

H&M: THE PERFECT FALL WARDROBE

LAZY, LUXE AND SOFT MORNINGS
Start your day off right in soft September, with sun rays streaming through the French balcony doors (yes, we have Paris on our minds), dressed in the finest silk underwear and a super-cozy, alpaca wool mix cardigan. We’ll wear it with everything this season – a casual jeans-and-t-shirt look or over a fancy silk slip <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span>.

THE FOREVER COMBO
Having one of those “I have nothing to wear” moments? The classic white shirt and indigo <span class=”woR”>jeans</span><span class=”woD”>Jeans are trousers typically made from denim or dungaree cloth. Often the term “jeans” refers to a particular style of pants, called “blue jeans,” which were invented by Jacob Davis in 1871[1] and patented by Davis and Levi Strauss on May 20, 1873. Originally designed for cowboys and miners, jeans became popular in the 1950s among teenagers, especially members of the greaser subculture.</span> have saved us from numerous wardrobe crises. The key to making the look last forever is to invest in quality pieces with a focus on details – like a premium pima cotton shirt with slightly oversized cuffs.

A NEW TAKE ON THE POWER SUIT
Off to rule the world? Don’t forget to put your armor on. This season’s best suit is made from a premium twill wool fabric, the blazer is fitted and the pants are wide, and they both come in a rich shade of cognac. A super-trendy silhouette and instant classic in one.

CITY CHIC IN CASHMERE CLASSICS
We can’t all rule the world, though. For us, just looking for a chic and semi-casual work look, a cashmere roll-neck sweater, worn with a white shirt and wide pants or jeans, is the perfect everyday choice. Layer with this season’s investment piece: a camel-colored, double-breasted wool coat.

FLUFFY MOHAIR DREAMS
Fashion statements can be cozy and comfy, too. Fall’s best friend is a loose-knit mohair mix sweater with too-long sleeves. Wear with a faux fur to enhance the fluffy feel, and make sure not to spill your Sunday brunch all over it.

ALL IN ON FALL
Chestnut, auburn, chocolate… There’s no color palette we love more than fall’s, and this season we’re going all in: layering calf-length dresses with cashmere knits and scarves.

THE STATEMENT (FAUX) FUR
If you don’t have (at least) one faux fur coat in your wardrobe, you haven’t done your <span class=”woR”>fashion</span><span class=”woD”>Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers.</span> homework. Time to invest in one! We’re in love with this premium quality gray coat – perfect for all occasions. Dress it down with a casual denim look for a weekend croissant and coffee run or pair it with your most elegant evening dress.

A NEW CLASSIC
A simple silk shirt is the most important staple in our everyday wardrobe. Our favorite comes in a mustard yellow – the season’s key color – and is best worn with dark indigo jeans. Layer with a tonal roll-neck underneath for colder days.

ASOS: THE NEW WAY TO WEAR SEQUINS

Sequins are big news this AW18, with shimmering looks aplenty that’ll work for every occasion – from after-dark events (hello, party season) to even, wait for it… daytime! With all these oh-so-shiny looks infiltrating the season, a sequin-induced dizzy spell may occur. So, to get your glittering outfits in order, be sure to check out our brand-new way to group your favourite Saved Items together. Available on the ASOS app, channel your inner Monica Geller by organising your outfit inspo into your own personalised Boards. Who ever said organisation can’t be fun? To get you started, here’s our roundup of the best ways to wear sequins now. Sunglasses at the ready…

Party favour
When it comes to party season, there’s nothing a sequin <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> can’t do. The epitome of festive cheer, it’s a guaranteed head-turner and conversation starter, plus it looks great under the strobe lights… need we go on? For an AW18 update, swap your usual clutch for a belt bag (the hands-free benefits are going to come in handy when you’re juggling all those cocktails and canapes).

Day-glow
If you thought a sequin dress was just for the dancefloor, think again. Blogger Caro Daur’s look makes a strong case for bringing the trend into your daytime lineup, too. Pair a high-neck, long-sleeve top with a sparkling maxi for a bold look that has some serious <span class=”woR”>fashion</span><span class=”woD”>Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers.</span> credentials (and is perfect for when the chill sets in). Dial the look up with bold colours and high-octane add-ons for maximum impact.

Trouser power
When you’re looking for a pick-me-up in the cold months, disco ball-inspired trousers have got you covered. Reach for these babies on those not-in-the-mood-for-a-dress nights and pair them with a slinky cami and a longline blazer. Or, if you’re feeling daring at the weekend, throw them on with a denim <span class=”woR”>jacket</span><span class=”woD”>A jacket is a mid stomach length garment for the upper body. A jacket typically has sleeves, and fastens in the front or slightly on the side. A jacket is generally lighter, tighter-fitting, and less insulating than a coat, which is outerwear. Some jackets are fashionable, while others serve as protective clothing.</span> and white lace-up boots for a dose of fun.

Throwback time
This street-styler’s look combines two of our favourite trends: glitter and the 90s. We’re loving the Sporty-Spice-meets-Studio-54 vibes. Who knew that a sequin crop top and a tracksuit were a match made in heaven? Add polish with slicked-back hair and minimal makeup, and on top, skinny sunnies win extra style points.

Less is more
For the minimalists out there, the thought of a fully sequinned ensemble may have you waking up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. But with this look, Dutch blogger Linda Tol proves there’s a pared-back way to tap into the trend. Go for a silver sequinned skirt and layer it under an oversized knit for a more subdued approach. Keep the accessories to a minimum too.
