Icon: Blake Lively in Marchesa Dress

The Vogue Diaries

When Blake rocked up to the Marchesa party this year in this little number, it cemented one more trend - tassles.  Tribal wear has been a look that many of the fashion elite has been taking on, hence my earlier post (here) on the pieces available.

Tassle-come-tribal-come-fringing was huge for SS11 and furthermore for AW11.  It seems to have stemned from the Cowboy look, and has now gone deeper into the Tribal collections.  Here is an amazing skirt from Matther Williamson that does the same (for £1795).

Get the look
Generally speaking, striped patterns are big - so anything with a mix of design, angles and stripes can count when trying to mimic Blair's look. Keep in mind that this trend will probably fade - so spend what you can afford to, to wear something you can only step out in this season.

For the ultimate statement piece that will absolutely cover you over into AW11 (metallics = huge) then look no further than Topshop for these amazing little shorts.  And I mean little.

This look will only get bigger - so watch out for tight fitting fringing and tassles.  The more vibrant and variant the prints, the better.
