Soft yet seductive
with a dangerous edge, basques and corsets create dramatic seductive
silhouettes. A 'barely there' feel of wispy silks and chiffons with
a ragged, torn appearance, are finished with faded florals.
Colours are romantic and mysterious.

Shorts are hot fashion looks for evening for those with
racehorse legs or not a dimple in sight. The example below show
inexpensive black corduroy shorts worn with either a lush
black velvet frock coat
or pussy bow jacket. If your legs need work then consider wearing
shorts with over the knee socks or some of the huge range of coloured and
decorative opaque tights available this autumn.
Black Magic creates a dark and mystical mood, full of dreams
and fantasy. Medieval and Victorian eras come together through decorative
details all with a touch of opulence. Sexy dark denim in graphic black
is mixed with ultra soft camisoles and drape dresses in powdery tones.
Victorian velvet jackets are worn with precious jacquards and soft aged
blouses while silk jerseys are decorated with crystal sparkles.
