This autumn one of the big trends hitting the high street is all things check. Dogtooth reminds me of the 60s matchy matchy trends, but has been updated this season, with Alexander McQueen's heavy influence from his a/w 09 collection where dogtooth was his focus. McQueen showed a collection of dogtooth dresses, suits and now sells the accessories to match, such as his squeezy clutch.

Of course, dogtooth has filtered down to the high street, with dresses and coats in topshop, new look, reiss, river island, next,wallis and many more. Dogtooth is a great update to your wardrobe, looking retro but modern, and you can't go wrong if you pick just one great piece and let it do the talking.

Will you be buying into the dogtooth trend?

Eeeeek SEX & THE CITY 2!

Every magazine over the last few weeks has been showing new photos from the set of SATC 2...ITS SO EXCITING. I officially can't wait for the film to see the new clothes. The first film was spot-on with all the trends of 2007 & 2008; fierce heels, belted waists and jumpsuits, it will be interesting to see what they come up with this time around. We've already seen some vintage Halston, Herve Ledger and Dior, seen in the photo above, and hopefully we'll see much more in the coming weeks. Eeeeekkk.

Emma Watson: fashion's new darling

Emma Watson is the one of the most talked about young women, of the moment, in terms of fashion. I really like her style, as opposed to all those indie young girls on the fashion front (Alexa Chung, Daisy Lowe blah blah blah) she chooses surprisingly classic fashion for someone so young, but always with an edge. It is nice to have a different view on young fashion, I'm getting very bored of lumberjack shirts, and the 90s grunge should never be having a comeback. Watson, a fan of Chanel, Burberry and Christopher Kane really shows there is a difference to young fashion; its not just indie or girls aloud/WAG style.

I hope her high fashion status continues, as a fresh approach to British style.

Do you think Emma Watson's style is a fresh view on fashion?

Or do you prefer the the indie girls' fashion?

LFW Betty Jackson s/s 10

At the 25th London Fashion Week, Betty Jackson's s/s show really stood out as a great example of British Fashion. I particularly loved the brocade details, in muted colours, perfect for the transition from winter to spring (see left). The designs also showed current trends such as the structured shoulder and the up and coming trend of underwear as outerwear. I'm loving the mix of ladylike fabric with an updated silhouette. Jackson also stuck to the classics, again with the on-trend silhouette, with a nautical striped top, and cropped trousers, among other designs.

Do you like Betty Jackson's trendy but classic designs?
