Delicate Grunge

Jaeger SS11
One of my favourite trends this is about mixing the delicate (silk, chiffon, luxurious jackets) with a grungy twist- (thick jumper, leather, parka's army boots) 

My fave looks of the season are featured below. 

£20- Boohoo

£20 Fashion Union

£40 Oasis
Blouses should be light-weight and be able to wear them tucked in or out, also check out DKNY, Math Collective, Mink Pink and New Look.

£42 USC

£50 Asos

£20 Boohoo

£38 Rare

Dresses can be any colour but again should be lightweight, look for either flowing fabrics or slightly structured, also look at, Nanette Lepore, Bebaroque, Miss Selfridge and Urban Outfitters. 

£200 Urban Outfitters

£45 Urban Outfitters

Wear the leather skirt with cute wedges and a blouse that is tucked out to give it that delicate edge. Also look at, YOOX, Asos, Whistles and Yogo Ego.

£40 Asos

£20 Boohoo

£34 Miss Selfridge

£35 Miss Selfridge

I think peg trousers work best for this look, but I would also be tempted to wear tan harem trousers, or straight legs rolled up at the cuff. A nude palette works well but obviously you are not limited to that, make your own choices and what you think goes and mix and match. 
For more trousers go to, French Connection and Dorothy Perkins, though Miss Selfridge seem to be at the fore front of this trend. 

£10 Asda

£45 Miss Selfridge

The maxi skirt can be any colour and can be teamed with army boots and thick socks or thick wedge ankle boots. Wear with a blouse and cinched in jacket or a thick jumper, preferably a man's. 
You can also look at maxi skirts on Urban Outfitters and Asos. 

£35 Boohoo

£55 Urban Outfitters

The sleeveless jacket is a massive trend this season as seen on the catwalk from collections such as Jaeger, Preen and Acne. They are perfect over chiffon dresses or over a blouse with trousers. These jackets are NOT to be confused with waistcoats and can be left open or cinched in at the waist. 
For more styles also look at, Ted Baker and Banana Republic or buy your preferable jacket and un-stitch the arms. 

Delicate Grunge should not be about following guidelines but rather layering delicate pieces over structured jackets, skirts or trousers. Leather jackets with a maxi dress or a billowing blouse with some gorgeous straight leg trousers is what this is all about. 
But most of all have fun with is, you really can't go wrong.
