Unchic: Lesson 1 – Side Cleavage

Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace (from a BB series I managed to avoid) was out in London on Wednesday evening. According to tabloids she did something that caused Abbey Clancy to cry, and then slap Peter Crouch, now in Chictique's opinion that is not classy behaviour. Being chic always involves avoiding places that footballers might be and definitely not trying to steal the attention of another girl's beau.

However, the thing that really caused me upset about "former model" Aisleyne is what she was wearing on Wednesday night. I cannot recall a single time in the history of fashion that this has been a good look:

Side cleavage is as tacky as clubbing clothing gets and at 30 years old, it seems that the former housemate hasn't learned that sophistication and age go hand in hand. Perhaps this strip of fabric could be worn by one in a younger age bracket (though I doubt this).

So, how have we learnt from Aisleyne? Side cleavage should be avoided at all costs (and maybe we should put the bottle of self tan down and re-think if orange skin teamed with lots of fake blonde hair and heavy make-up is chic... We know the answer - do you?

Welcome to CHICTIQUE

Here at CHICTIQUE we think we have "a clue". We don't wear over the knee socks, nor do we sport overly orange fake tans. We don't frequent places that Danielle Lloyd might be seen at and we would never be caught starring in our own sex tape (actually thinking about it, we wouldn't be seen in anyone's sex-tape, full stop). We wouldn't enlarge our breasts until they were each bigger than our head and we definitely wouldn't design a range of clothing for Asda.

However, we do understand the benefits of a high heel, get envious of Rachel Bilson's wardrobe, we try to eat healthily, we occasionally drink too much wine and wonder where the evening has gone. We will let you know what's happening to the unchic of the world, and how we can learn from them. We will also offer you insider tips on being chic....

Come back tomorrow to see our first proper installment on the CHICTIQUE blog.
