      Inspire me... the tonal colour block

      This autumn we’re more about evolution than revolution. With this in mind we’ve taken last season’s trend for wearing vibrant blocks of colour and turned it into a subtler look by using tones of charcoal and navy blue.  We’ve also taken the hard work out of matching individual colours for you by combining them all into one piece. Cue our W t-shirt, Clarence maxi-dress, and One Aldwych pencil skirt.

      And with our choice of blues a hit at the most recent round of catwalk shows for next autumn/winter, as seen above at Anne Valerie Hash (right) and Gianfranco Ferre (left), the Tluxe take on a more subtle, tonal colour block is a fashion-forward look that’ll see you well into next year and beyond.

      Eco tip of the week… Tluxe bamboo

      The fashion industry can leave a pretty hefty environmental footprint from the chemicals used in making fabrics to the landfill required for all those clothes that wear out. Here at Tluxe we’ve tried to lessen our impact on the planet with the creation of an Essentials range, which we’ve launched this season, and plan to slowly and quietly expand on in months to come.

       The aim is to provide you with quality pieces in sustainable fabrics, which will become the core building blocks of your wardrobe. It’s all about the perfect T-shirt, the perfect skirt, or the perfect pair of leggings.

      Finding the most flattering fit and combining it with a certain timeless style is a key part of the formula for our Essentials range. So too is our focus on using high quality fabrics such as bamboo, which has a reputation for being the world's most renewable material due to it’s fast-growing nature and ability to thrive without the use of chemical fertilisers or pesticides.

      Just take a look at our wear-them-forever, super-soft and super-comfortable bamboo tube pencil skirt and maxi tube skirt. By choosing organic fibres or sustainable fabrics you’re doing your bit in contributing to a brighter, chemical-free future, and there's no doubt that's a good thing.

      On trend... the pencil skirt

      The pencil skirt is just so hot right now and will be one of your go-to items well into next winter. Why? Well, it’s not just because it looks sexy, it also helps pull together any of the key trends of the season, from block colours to fetish, mixing up your textures, and the more obvious 1940s themes seen all over the winter catwalks. We also love a pencil skirt because you can wear it right now with your summer sandals or when the weather cools down, with knee-length winter boots.

      Our top tip is to look for a skirt that sits just below the knee, like our very own Tluxe version, which is the most flattering style, unless of course you have the knees of a supermodel and can sport something shorter. Then throw on something simple and graphic, like a boxy tunic-style top, a simple crew-neck number or a jacket with a peplum, et voila, you’ve mastered one of the season’s smartest looks, which has the added bonus of taking you from boardroom to cocktail bar without having to do little more than freshen up your makeup.
