Sorry - the competition to win a ŠKODA Fabia and a $3000 wardrobe is now closed.


Take inspiration from the modern clean lines of the new ŠKODA Fabia. Viva fashion editor Dan Ahwa says it’s all about keeping it simple and elegant.

For those who like understated elegance, the new ŠKODA Fabia is the ideal match. The perfect about town car, it’s smart and sharp with a fresh European design. Indeed, the ŠKODA Fabia has been judged car of the year and overall winner in the UK’s What Car Awards 2015.

This ŠKODA Fabia is the lightest and most agile, environmentally friendly and economical Fabia ever. Match it with an elegant trench and skirt combo from the new Gregory collection and a classic silk blouse. Pieces that will never date work best in any situation, so focus on complementary tones of cream, charcoal, navy and shades of brown for an elegant approach to dressing this season. In keeping with a trad and true look, opt for timeless accessories.

Jewellery such as delicate pearl earrings or a gold fob chain offer a polished addition, and a discreet handbag with gold or brass finishing completes the look. Several local and international designers have kept it clean cut and classic with a variety of standout coats from traditional camel wool options to updated trench coats with a minimalist utilitarian feel. On the back of a strong 70s revival this season, you also can’t look past the chic combination of a mid-length skirt and knee high boot. The pairing provides ample coverage on those bleak days ahead. It’s classic with a modern twist and a look that will never date, much like the ŠKODA Fabia.

The new ŠKODA Fabia is vibrant, energetic and sporty. Viva fashion editor Dan Ahwa shares how to work this look

The stunning ŠKODA Fabia, with its fresh European design, has been judged car of the year and the overall winner in the UK’s What Car Awards 2015. It comes in a range of bold colours that you can customise to suit your own personal style. Match it with a no fuss relaxed suit from exciting new label ITZME and a pair of clean cut trainers for an energetic nod to the busy woman on the move.

This streetwear element has filtered through this season, with several designers teaming minimalist trainers with pretty much everything from dresses to suits. The result: a polished look with a relaxed tomboy edge. Leisurewear is set to become one of the year’s most lucrative fashion categories for both men and women, as busy lifestyle requires a wardrobe that can keep up. From luxe sweatshirts to re-worked track pants in languid silks, it’s sports luxe with a distinctive edge, as designers combine both sportswear and streetwear elements with a confident hand. Colour blocking also works well here for an upbeat mood, so take your cue from the yellow ŠKODA Fabia, for example, and experiment with bold colours that will make heads turn. It’s a look that works for a busy lifestyle and can last the distance, much like the ŠKODA Fabia.

Sexy, fun and exciting, the new ŠKODA Fabia is the ultimate accessory around town, says Viva fashion editor Dan Ahwa

For those who like to flirt with fun and glamour, then the stylish new ŠKODA Fabia is for you. The overall winner in the UK’s What Car Awards 2015, it has a sharp and elegant European design. Match it with a flirtatious cocktail dress by Liam and a pair of heels to shimmy and shake in for a fun night out. This is the perfect car to make a statement, as it celebrates a sense of style that’s unique and individual.

Several of this season’s key fashion pieces highlight colour, texture and a sense of adventure and in this instance, anything goes. Take a cue from the confident and sexy spirit of the 90s, an era of glitzy cocktail dresses and playful hem lengths that highlight a carefree attitude. Why can’t more be more? In a time where the term normcore has become an acceptable excuse for don’t-look-at me dressing, it’s an opportunity to celebrate the colourful women out there who like to make a statement. Bold accessories are important, so look to the myriad metallic accents that will catch the lights at night from embellished pumps or clutch purses made up of shimmering paillettes. It’s a look that’s upbeat and cool and definitely not for the shrinking violet, much like the ŠKODA Fabia.
