TRAVEL TO THE FASHION CAPITALS IN STYLE
Momondo's Elnaz picks out what's hot to wear, where...
London designer and Momondo Local Fighter ELNAZ NIKNANI, has been busy promoting her fashion line, at all four recent major fashion weeks - New York, London, Milan, and Paris, earlier this month.
Elnaz here unveils the key fashion trends for each city this season, and essential items to pack when visiting, to be in vogue...
What to wear in New York
"The current New York style is very simple, with clean lines - very smart casual. If you want to be bang-on-trend in the Big Apple this season, make sure you pack an oversized coat, and see-through bag," says Niknani.
Return flights to New York from London, start from just £384 in April, searching on momondo.co.uk.
What to wear in Milan
"This season, Milan's fashion is all about fabric, pattern and texture. Make sure you pack printed pieces, and don't be afraid to combine several different fabrics, in one outfit," says Niknani.
Return flights to Milan from London, start from just £165 in April, searching on momondo.co.uk.
What to wear in London
"London has always been known for its cutting edge fashion. One trend I noticed this London Fashion Week, was a lot of DIY fashion. You don't see this in New York, Milan or Paris. In London, far more people are improvising, and making up their own rules.
"So my travel/fashion tip for those visiting London, is to be to be a little creative - perhaps you might be wearing something you've designed or printed yourself, or it could be something as individual as using your favourite scarf, as a belt or turban," says Niknani.
What to wear in Paris
"Paris is the land of couture fashion, so I wasn't surprised that everyone was wearing a lot of designer labels. However, one trend that really stood out this year was fur. My tip for fashionistas would be to pack one fur item (it doesn't have to be real), if you are booking a city break to Paris this season," says Niknani.
Return flights to Paris from London, start from just £61 in April, searching on momondo.co.uk.
And for everywhere else...
"If you want to be in style and don't want to spend too much money, buy a clutch bag - these are on-trend everywhere this season," says Niknani.
Momondo recently ran a competition to win a travel-inspired clutch bag, designed by Elnaz Niknani. Watch out for more competitions to win items from her new collection, on the momondo blog. http://blog.momondo.co.uk/
