Saying goodbye to our London elephants

Is anyone else missing those fashionista elephants who invaded London earlier this year? They certainly brightened up the city and showed us a thing or two about style.

Just to reminisce here are  a few of our favourites.

Dahlings you can’t ignore the designer elephants now can you?
Here we see outfits designed by Paul Smith and Ralph Lauren. 

Paul Smith went for a bold outfit of his  signature colours and stripes....

................whilst Ralph Lauren went controversial with a little red number embellished with periwinkles and green foliage. Was he capturing the London punk look?

Accessories maketh the outfit as these well dressed elephants show.

The little black number is brightened with a few bejewelled embellished anklets.

The matching gold anklet and necklace enrich this multi coloured outfit.

This nude coloured macramé cape (a trend to look out for this autumn) tones down the red and white patterned outfit.

 Large statement earrings make this plain blue outfit striking.

Some fashionistas showing us how to wear the big summer trends this season.

Matching accessories to your outfit is out as this Oxford Street elephant shows. Lilac outfit with lime green and orange accessories – a bold statement but definitely on trend.

Lace is a big summer trend this season and this fashionista wears it with a hint of eastern promise. Also loving the gold nail polish.

The vintage look is in and this Covent Garden elephant looks great in yellow and white polka dots.

Floral prints are a big hit this summer, whether ditzy or a larger design. Wear in light shades and chiffon fabrics for a cool look as this South Bank elephant shows.

Pastels are the colours to wear, especially pink and white. This Berkeley Square elephant ensures her ethereal look does not fade in to the background  by adding drama with her smokey eyes

Graphic prints are a good alternative trend to the floral prints. This Carnaby Street elephant is going for the retro look.........

.................whilst this Kensington High Street elephant is in to the more graffiti look.

Metallics are in. Wear gold for warm complexions and silver for cool. This fashionista has also added texture (another big trend) by mixing matt and shine.  

Bringing a touch of exotic adds glamour as the Leicester Square elephant showed with her touch of Bollywood .

A few of the elephants decided to bring style to our sporting events this year.

During Ascot our fashionista elephants outshone everyone in their daisy fascinators

A Spain football loving supporter on to a winner here in Hyde Park.

And at Wimbledon, taking lawn tennis to the extreme, whilst others.........

-------are all strawberried out

Here are some styling tips we can learn from our fashionistas

Vertical stripes will make you look slimmer

Wearing one colour head to toe is also slimming and it doesn't have to be black as this pretty in pink Covent Garden elephant models.

When wearing prints you need to consider your body scale. If you have a Iarge body scale then small prints will only make you look larger and vice versa. This Sloane elephant can wear a large print with confidence.

But like all fashionistas we sometimes have our off days and make fashion faux pas. Here are some of theirs.

Remember what looks good on someone else doesn’t automatically mean it’s going to look good on you.
Pandas look cute and cuddly, but on this poor elephant it just looks wrong.

Leave midriff revealing clothes to the young and slim. There are better and more flattering ways to show off your curvaceous figure.

Don’t wear a wide belt if you haven’t got a waist, it will only emphasise your tummy.

Animal prints are a summer trend which will last in to the autumn/winter,but not a good look when you wear them all over, keep to key pieces and you'll get a stylish look.

And not forgetting the boys,  here’s a few of the male elephants who just wanted to show us how much they loved London by dressing the part.

Wearing a Union Jack flag over your shoulders is not a good sartorial look, but this elephant looks kinda cute.

Everyone loves a guy in uniform – although we think someone should have told these elephants it doesn’t usually include a Bobby............

........... or a Chelsea pensioner.

This elephant is going for the intelligent and vintage look in his Sherlock Holmes attire.

An elephant in all black is usually a good look but not as a Taxi!  Drive on; we’ll wait for the ferrari

Now this elephant fared better in white as all the girls gave him a kiss goodbye.

Goodbye we’ll miss you all.xxxxx
