Get Fringed

Fringe, tassel’s, bohemian, 70’s, whatever you want, its staying! We all saw fringed pieces come onto the shelves thick and fast towards the end of last year, you are probably wondering why on earth Im talking about it now, well I can tell you for free it definitely won’t be leaving the shelves as fast as they arrived.  The 70’s revival will be hanging around for some time with a strong presence come Autumn/Winter ’15 where will will see racks of rust and burnt autumnal colours which are so typical of the 70’s era.  However we will not just be mixing these earthy tones with other earthy tones like browns and blacks but pairing them with fresh colours like white, cream, nude and even cerise and turquoise.  Imagine a rust coloured coat with a pair of white jeans and a nude pink blouse underneath.  I absolutely LOVE the combination, it is fresh and sophisticated.

I have selected a few of my favourite fringed/tasseled/bohemian pieces. Be selective when choosing your purchases, it can be easy to look a bit run of the mill with obvious trends, and it’s tricky not to sometimes when shopping on the high street I know, but think outside the box and even if it’s just another fringed bag, perhaps find the cute one with a unique embroidered print, in the not so obvious colours, or match your tri-colour fringed heels with a romantic flowing midi skirt.  Combine turquoise or cerise with these earthy tones for a break in colour and extra style creds…Oh and don’t forget to throw a bit of gold metallic into the mix too – LOVE!

I just love this palette, it’s definitely my favourite (or I might say that about all palettes each season, who cares!)


Wardrobe Top-Ups

There are certain items that are necessities for the closet all year round and then others that come and go as the season’s and trends change.  This summer (or just for the start of summer, lets be honest we aren’t only going to buy 3 things the entire season!) But I have picked 3 pieces that you wont regret purchasing. These items will come in handy more than once, trust me.

These block mid heel sandals are the perfect shoes to wear to that Out-door wedding, the Polo or the Races.  Not only will they save your feet from aches and pains due to the middy height but the block heel will save you from sinking into the grass and potential embarrassing falls.  The very neutral and bang on trend sandals will go with just about everything. They will also be great with jeans and are the perfect heel for shorts.

The Boucle Blazer, a smart/casual fabric, a smart fit and an extremely flattering cut is the perfect jacket to throw on this summer. Whether you are off to a formal event, wear it over a dress or it will look super chic over a little strappy vest and jeans to add that extra layer on a slightly cooler evening.

Metallics and sequins are an absolute must for evenings during the summer months. Hopefully you wont have to cover the sparkle up with a jacket and it’s the easier way to jazz up your jeans for an evening out. You will look oh so radiant with a bit of a tan and I just love the way light catches these fabrics in romantic candle lit lighting.  If you are looking for a show stopping red carpet moment this gorgeous metallic vest looks even more phenomenal worn together with its matching skirt for a more formal event. You will dazzle and certainly be the belle of the ball in this outfit!
