FASHION - Press Day Highlights: Rare & Paprika

Autumn/Winter may be a while away but I still get excited about getting a sneak preview of what's to come. Last week I headed to Soho for the Rare & Paprika press day and I've picked out a few of my favourite pieces to whet your appetite for next season's fashion...

Paprika teal tassel dress - I laid eyes on this and immediately fell in love. It has a slightly twenties vibe about it and I love the super-chic colour. I can see it with black tights and killer heels for the desk to dancefloor season. (I'd be wearing flats during the day of course). Some of the Rare Opulence dresses also fit this colour story with teal and black party dresses with statement detailing.

The gorgeous knitwear from Paprika also caught my eye especially this waffle effect knit complete with velvet bow. Lots of fur-trims too, perfect for cosying up in during the winter months.

I loved the oversize plait detailing on this blouse as part of the higher end Opulence collection. The colour palette was still quite seventies too.

And who can resist a bit of sparkle. This dress features in the Rare press book and is one for those who like to stand out.

For Summer, Rare has plenty to offer too. Dresses really are the main selling point for me, although I've tried out jackets and tops in the past too. I'm loving this coin embellished white dress - very 'Indian Princess'. Paprika has some great little holiday essentials from sundresses to maxis. One thing to mention is that I do find the sizing to be quite small, but if you're a curvier lady just keep that in mind and don't feel bad if you need to go up a size.
