First things first: yes this trend is called Fetish but its not as scary as it sounds. True, its all about ramping up the sex appeal but not in an obvious micro mini, boobs-on-show kind of way. In fact between the below-the-knee pencil skirts and fluffy sweaters, its actually pretty demure when you get down to it, which makes it easy to work away from the catwalk.
The focus here is on texture; glossy leather, stiff, sculptural satin, sheer panels and stroke-me knits, not to mention lots and lots of black. The only real essential is a pair of heels, and the higher the better you dont have to be bold enough to sport a thigh-high boot but this is simply not a look that works with a flat shoe.More
