Véronique Forge-Karibian Founder of the French platform for female entrepreneurs, Business O Feminin, lets us in on her secrets to a healthy work/life balance, her go-to brands and how to succeed as a woman in business... 

Why did you create Business O Feminin? 

I had the chance to work on a show about women called Women of Exception for several years in which I interviewed women with like Christine Lagarde and Simone Veil but also business minds like Mathilde Thomas of Caudalie and artists like Dee Bridgewater. 

What fascinates me about all these women is their path in life, their thread and the entanglement of the circumstances that helped them find their way. Through Businessofeminin.com, I wanted to give all women the ability to fulfil their professional potential and develop their full personal potential. 

How do you juggle your personal life and your career? 

I am fortunate to have help with my two children who are still young. I also try to spare some time for myself – I lived in London for nine years and in that time I started playing a lot of sports, which I still love to do. In the mornings I have my rituals and begin the day by using the Calm app to meditate. It’s a great little app that helps teach a life-changing practice. 

What are the pieces in your wardrobe that make you feel most confident? 

I like to feel comfortable in my clothes and not be too overdressed. I'm pretty keen on suede jackets, especially from the brand Van Palma. I wear them with jeans by Closed or leather pants by Fête Impérial. I’m also a hat person and I love Estrée for these. 

What essentials do you always carry with you? 

I always carry a pouch that turns into an evening bag in my handbag and in terms of other essentials I really like Clio Goldbrenner's new chic and practical collection. As for beauty, I carry a survival kit comprised of Mademoiselle Saint Germain's eye cream with cucumber, Glossier's pink blush and my favourite, By Terry's rose balm for my lips. 

Long days at the office can take its toll on your skin. Tell us about your skincare routine…

Always remove make up before bed, apply a mask twice a week and stay hydrated. This season I’ve been road testing a cream by Raw Material and a pomegranate serum from Wisdom Cares. I also do a deep skin cleanse every month to maintain a healthy glow. 

Who inspires you? 

I have a lot of admiration for Arianna Huffington, the founder of the Huffington Post, whom I had the chance to meet in London. She is extremely intelligent, cultured and visionary and the proof is in her new project, Thrive Global, a media platform geared towards personal development. She has drawn on her own experiences of burn out in order to help people take a step back and enjoy the multiple aspects of their lives. 

What would you say is the secret recipe for becoming an accomplished businessperson? 
 
Finding a balance between personal and professional life and always saving a little time for yourself. Before you start, meet other entrepreneurs to exchange experiences, ideas and insights and join existing communities, like the Business O Feminine Club. We organise monthly meetings with entrepreneurs, coaches and leaders to share knowledge and give women the tools they need to succeed. 

What is your favourite motivational quote? 

I have two… "They did not know it was impossible, so they did it" – Mark Twain. "Well behaved women rarely make history." – Eleonor Roosevelt.

English heritage-inspired design is always on trend from autumn into winter. There’s just something cosy about wrapping up in front of an original fireplace surrounded by books and antiques.   


However, traditional interior design can sometimes look at little outdated so we looked to our panel of interiors experts for a few tips on how to put a contemporary twist on heritage style…   
Firstly, make use of modern colours. It’s easy to opt for the safe bet but of you’re planning on filling a room with antiques, a bright, tonal colour is a great way to offset them.   

Mixing vintage and modern fabrics and accessories is also a great way to embrace heritage style. Tweed, tartan and Regency-inspired prints look great next to modern velvets, stripes and animal prints.   

Lastly, a statement piece in a modern home can really help to channel classic appeal. Consider a chaise lounge, pintucked headboard or vintage sofas and rugs to bring the look together.

Libra, your time has come and although your naturally intuitive nature means you’re generally pretty good at shopping for yourself, you often find it hard to make decisions. Fear not, because we’ve created a handy guide and an edit of pieces that were made for you.   


Airy pastel tones of pink and light blue are your jam, reflecting your calming, loving and very likeable character. These pale hues bring a calming and likeable presence to Libra's personality. Blue represents your clarity and balance, while pink showcases your propensity for love – you are ruled by Venus after all.   

So Libra, your love for all things chiffon, crepe and voluminous is never ending due to your interest in breezy and elegant silhouettes, but a well-fitting pair of blue jeans and a fuzzy blush-toned jumper will do just as well for you on off-duty days.   

Your sign is among the most social and popular meaning a party-ready look is your go-to. A great line-up of mix and match accessories is essential for balancing your outfit and we know how much you love balance.    

The sign of the scales is blessed with a natural sense of right and wrong, making you very focused on justice, honesty, and fairness – is that a politically-charged slogan tee we spy in your autumn line-up?   

Now that it’s Libra season your sign ushers in the coming of gorgeous autumn sunshine but as your ruling planet of Venus is currently in retrograde, remember to dress for yourself and don’t worry about the opinions of others. Spend more time shopping for and rocking pieces that are personal to you.  

Because Libra sees both sides of every situation, they can have trouble making up their minds. We know how much you love to please others, but don't forget to treat yourself too. If in doubt, just buy both pairs of shoes. You deserve them, Libra.   

Shop the Libra season edit below and let a little bit of you shine through…

2018 has been a huge year for trends - we've seen so many come and go and while we've been avid fans of some, others left us shaking our heads in bewilderment and disbelief. 


Whether you're a fearless experimentalist or prefer to play it safe, there will always be a handful of fall trends that return year after year and boy, do we love to rely on them...

The brown leather tote  

Everyone and their grandmother owns a brown leather tote. It's a fall staple and an enduringly cool and reliable piece. Whether you opt for a classic shopper or a more directional silhouette, a mini or an oversized style, this baby complements anything and everything.

A pair of statement earrings
  
Costume jewelry trends come and go but a go-to pair of oversized earrings is always a winner. Play with this season's resin and beading trends or keep things classic with statement gold hoops or a structural silver design.

Something velvet   

Velvet and fall are a match made in sartorial heaven. Luxe, lustrous and the perfect way to jazz up your day-to-night look, opt for something in bright gem tones a lá the Gucci gang.

Something in animal print   

Every year we hang up our spots and stripes for summer and get excited when fall hits and it's time to rock them again. Faux-fur coats are always equal parts edgy and elegant and who doesn't love a statement print?

Something studded   

In fall it's entirely permissible to channel your inner goth and studded accessories are a must. Think embellished bags and studded western-style boots. Or if you're not prepared to revisit the fashion faux pas of your youth, toughen up your look with a pair of iconic Rockstuds by Valentino.

With so many gorgeous pieces dropping with the onset of each new season it can be tricky trying to figure out which pieces are worth investing in. Cue the rise of the designer rental market. Brands like Rent The Runway make it easy to rock the latest IT-bag or designer dress for a fraction of the cost.


So whether you've a one-off occasion coming up or you want to try out every fall trend without splurging, here are the pieces you might want to consider renting instead of making a full investment in this season...

A party dress 

Sequins and statement prints are going to be huge this fall, but realistically, how much wear are you going to get out of an embellished party dress? Save your money for staple pieces and try out the trend without the commitment.

A statement coat

While it’s always worth investing in a classic coat – think camel, black and navy – this season’s statement styles may not be still be so cool in a couple of years. Tartan, houndstooth and bright colors are all key looks for fall, so grab them now.

A bold bag

Logo prints and neon hues are big on the street style scene, but they don’t exactly scream timeless. If you’re still not sure if it’s worth splashing the cash on this season’s bold bag trends, play it safe and rent one instead.

A printed jacket 

Probably the easiest way to refresh your wardrobe, a printed jacket will make your go-to jeans and sweater feel completely new. Animal prints and military styles are the ones to look out for right now.  

Retro sunglasses

Sunglasses aren’t just for summer – they’re the easiest way to work this season’s retro trend, and they’ll look so good with a faux-fur coat. Look for an oversized cat-eye pair in a bright color or tortoiseshell print.

Generally taken to mean understated elegance and rustic charm in the world of interiors, Wabi-Sabi is the Japanese concept of perfect imperfection.   

The idea of things being transient or incomplete is a hit with those that like their homes to look lived in and a Wabi-Sabi aesthetic is the perfect way to achieve this.  

We’re looking to the following tips on how to channel Japanese aesthetics in your home for autumn and winter…

Rustic surfaces  

Think unfinished plaster, unrefined wood and concrete. Clay, terracotta and cracked tile are also great ways to channel the trend, giving an air of simplicity, peace and nature undisturbed.   

Natural materials 

Wood, stone and earthenware objects and items of furniture are both in keeping with the Wabi-Sabi aesthetic but also speak to Japanese design sense in general. Think about the four elements and try to incorporate all of them in your space.  

Imperfect objects  

Ceramics, artwork, rustic benches and soft furnishings made from linen and woven wool are all perfect for transforming your living area or bedroom into a cosy space for the cooler months and nailing the Wabi-Sabi approach to imperfection.  

Neutral tones   

Bright colours are a no-no when it comes to this trend. Keep things natural, minimalist and pared back with cool grey, white, oat and earth tones.

So, you’ve got the ready-to-wear trends down for the new season – now it’s time to brush up on the best beauty looks from the FW18 runways. Here’s what was hot and how to rock it this season...


Electric eyes 

Neon hues are huge this fall, but it wasn’t just the clothes that were bright on the FW runways. The models at Prada and Marni wore electric eyeshadow, while at Dries Van Noten neon lashes reigned. Try accenting your usual black liner with a bold color in the inner corner of your eyes, or give your lashes a swipe of blue mascara.

Brushed brows

Another season, another brow trend. This time, make up artists kept them natural and feathery. All you need to nail the trend is a tinted brow gel –  or keep it clear if you’re blessed with full brows – and softly brush the hair upwards.

Retro lashes

Valentino and Givenchy embraced ‘60s-inspired beauty, coating models’ eyelashes in plenty of mascara for a retro feel. The trick to keeping this trend modern is to leave the rest of your face as natural as possible – think dewy skin and a just a dab of lip balm.

Punk liner

The runways were awash with rebellious clothes, and there was plenty of make up to match. Max Mara opted for a glam-punk look, with Gigi Hadid and Kaia Gerber sporting dramatic smoky eyes in the show. Don’t worry about getting it perfect – the smudgier, the better.

A new season means a new footwear line-up, especially if you’re the type of guy who refuses to rock the same pair of grubby sneakers day in day out. But with so many options on the high street and luxe options from high-end retailers too, how do you go about choosing what’s right for you?   

We looked to a mix of menswear styling exerts and designers for a few tips on how to invest in the perfect shoes for autumn and here’s what they had to say…

Favour a slim or skinny jean or trouser shape?

Desert boots are the shoe for you. Easy to wear with a slimmer leg and always on trend, the humble desert boot is a style set and celebrity mainstay for a reason.   

Smart office dress code?

A pair of polished Chelsea boots is a step up from a smart brogue or wingtip and a taller length and slightly thicker sole means you’ll be protected from the elements on your commute whilst looking slick.  

Love a chilled weekend look? 

Neutral high-top trainers are your new best friends. Impossibly comfortable and ideal for anything from a walk round the park to drinks in the evening, opt for tonal blacks, greys, blues and olive green tones for an autumn-ready look.   

Need an all-rounder?   

Moccasin-style boots can be styled up or down depending on the occasion. Team yours with turned-up straight-leg jeans and a merino jumper or rock them with a checked suit for all your upcoming events.

One of the best things about fall is picking a new pair of boots. But which to choose? The decision can be tricky, so we’ve rounded up this year's hottest boot trends. These are the styles you’re about to see everywhere... 


Most wanted 

Thanks to the likes of Calvin Klein and Chloé, cowboy boots are having a serious moment. Influencers are wearing Western styles with everything from printed dresses to denim, and they’ve never looked cooler. 

Go wild

You probably know by now that animal print is going to be huge, but the easiest way to wear it is on a pair of boots. Whether you choose faux snakeskin or a leopard-print pair, they’ll add an instant rock ‘n’ roll edge to any outfit. Show them off by rolling up the cuffs of your jeans. 

Made for walking 

The fall equivalent of this year’s sought-after ‘dad’ sneakers? Hiking boots. That’s right – practical walking shoes are officially cool, and our feet are so thankful for it. The trick to nailing this trend is balancing the chunky shape with a feminine dress.

On point 

Balenciaga’s ‘Knife’ boots are a cult favorite on the street style scene, and now sharp point-toe styles are everywhere. Look for high-shine patent leather or sleek burgundy hues and use them to dress up relaxed denim.
