♡ Femme Fatale - Winter Chic ♡


Dark, dangerous and alluring is what you want to create this winter! My inspiration for creating sultry seductress style is always a mix od modern and the vintage greats such as Dita Von TeeseMarlene Dietrich, Lauren Bacall and Bettie Page when recreating the look.  Ultimately, the key to any seductress look is of course  chicness, with the right amount of seduction. For me this has to include a great coat or trench, leather gloves, high heels, along with the perfect dress or skirt and top combo to create the look. 

Most importantly, wear what works better for your figure, if you're very slim or have an athletic physique use a waist belt to add curves with a dress or on your coat, trenches are great. If you already have plenty of curves belts are also great for emphasising and accentuating your waist. A chic pencil skirt and shirt combo looks fantastic too; whatever suits your figure best go for, wear what you feel most comfortable in and you’ll look fabulous and as long as it's teamed with the chic trench coat, heels, some leather gloves and red lippy, you’re ready to go!   

Primark/Penneys, Forever 21, H&M, New Look, TK Maxx, for those of you in the UK or Ireland have a fantastic range available to create seductress inspired budget pieces. If you're in the United States check out Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, Target, H&M. I swear by shopping on eBay you can find loads of pieces at bargain prices and the choice is amazing too. For those of you like me who love to shop online, here are some recommendations of some really great stores for everything you'll need to create the perfect chic seductress look.
