For autumn/ winter 2010, Sportscraft continues to be leader of must have classics including the trench coat and white shirt. This season also sees an injection of feminine pieces, a new denim range and an added edge with leather.
For the March collection, uptown preppy is the inspiration with jewel tones of deep aubergine, teal and coral sitting on a base of dark silver and black. The key print message is an abstract tonal brush stroke print in shades of rich purple, available in a dress $269.00.
Preppy, vintage Chanel inspired cardigans are introduced with self brocade detail trims in winter white and black $159.95.Textural Knitwear also plays a key part in the winter delivery available in varying weights and gauges.

Made from a water resistant material, the Travel Trench comes with its own travel pack $199.95 to fold down with ease when traveling.
The menswear March collection has embraced a strong and masculine colour theme with the use of black, silver and charcoal. Highlight colours consist of mid to dark purple which is evident in shirting and knitwear. Sportscraft also introduce a new Rugby jersey collection this winter; in classic stripes and colours. The brand has taken a step back in time by introducing the vintage Sportscraft crest; a subtle nod to our proud 95 year heritage which not only symbolizes strength and history, but masculinity and style. The rugby provides a great layering alternative and looks fantastic with the washed oxfords, and casual outwear pieces. Checks are also key this winter in shirts. Wear back with a rolled chino for a relaxed day time look.
Accessories make a statement this winter with statement leather totes. The Karla Stud Tote $369.00 is a must have this winter, made from matt black leather, with gold chain handles, covered in silver and gold studs.

I am fan of shopping online and why would you shop any other way this Christmas, not only will you save money but save yourself the hassles of full carparks, longs ques and frantic shoppers who feel their day is going to end and nothing will be left to buy in the stores.
So I thought I would give you a few Style Angel favorite online shopping sites:
Great online site for Anti-ageing skin care - Arbonne
I personally love Witchery (decked out in comfy Witchery myself whilst writing this blog) and I love the new range for Men that they have available in selected stores and of course online! (why would you shop any way else these days)

Summer collections are in, the shops are looking great and now all we need is..... some warm Summer weather!
Last week I had fun with my super
stylish Mum with shopping for my Style Angel wardrobe to get me through
Summer. Colourful dresses were the goal (I am talking Coral, Pink,
Turquoise, Lilac and Reds all my favorites) and we bought some great
dresses in Diana Ferrari with matching hot pink patent
wedges from Diana Ferrari as well.
I wanted to share with you the latest Diana Ferrari Summer Looks that are in stores right now! The colours in store are just lovely suited to Cool as well as Warm Colour Seasons. The shapes of the dresses all are very different which means there will be one just for you that fits your shape perfectly.
Diana Ferrari works really well for the "real woman" shape and is cut well.
Diana Ferrari shoes are also fantastic,
comfortable, colourful and available in the Diana Ferrari store so you
can easily match your dresses and here is a look at what is in stores.
I love these sandals, they will match any outfit and dress it up just a little yet give you the comfort of a flat shoe. I personally prefer the look of a foot when the strap sits "in between the toe" instead of going across all toes. It gives a more elegant look and a slims the foot right down because of the vertical design features as opposed to horizontal. (want to understand more about this just email me!)
