Summer Trends

 3 Trends I’m Loving This Summer…

And think you should too!

1.

 They are so laid back and casually stylish which makes them incredibly difficult to get wrong!

Shirts from M&S, Jane Norman, Mint Velvet, La Redoute

2.


Whenever I buy new trends I tend to neglect my bottom half, instead opting for the basics like jeans, skirts or chinos – these patterned shorts can go with my basic wear this summer and incorporate the trend in a new way than before – great for festivals too!

Shorts both from Yogoego

What would we do without them in the summer sun?!

A Snapshot of your Summer

Your Six Summer Essentials…

1. A Floppy Hat – This scarf cloche hat £20 from Monsoon is perfect for covering up your face in the sun and your sun lounger hair!

*
2. A Bag to fit all your essentials in – This Brigette Satchel Bag £77 from French Connection screams summer cruises around the med!

*
3. Some light summer Wedges – Because you can last longer in them than stilettos and they look much more chic in the warmer weather, (They also make your legs look thinner because of their chunkiness! Result!)  Giggles Wedges, Dune – £85.

 *

4. A Blouse – The  slouchy blouse look with tight trousers or jungle shorts is a summer staple. This Miso Double Button Blouse from Republic, £26.99, is ideal for warm days and cool evening dressed up or down or thrown over a bikini.

*

5. A Maxi Dress – The best thing about maxi dresses are they cover a multitude of sins if you chose the right style and fabric, pair it with a top and a belt and it can pass as a skirt too! Tribal print maxi dress £55 M&Co.

6. Shorts have made a come back again this Summer – These paperbag waist tie belt shorts £32 from Jane Norman are so on trend with the waist detailing and safari colour.

The New Queen Of Style

Olivia Palermo

You must be on another planet if you have not heard or seen of the feminine beauty and perfectly polished style of the Palermo yet.

Wearing wardrobe staples such as classic black shorts, black platforms and a floaty chiffon 70’s inspired blouse with some of the seasons hottest trends, she works the pavement and red carpet like a pro.

Here are her staples that will take you through the seasons and beyond too!

1. The classic black stiletto – For the obvious leg lengthening reason, but also for making you walk like you own the room!

2. The chiffon blouse – For that feminine touch when added to striking androgynous trousers or boyish jeans.

3. The Black shorts – For your playful side and a cheeky alternative to the skirt and more wearable for in the office too.

4. The pastel over sized messenger bag – For that ‘now’ look but still in keeping with casual chic when added to work wear.

Short Shorts

Short shorts in the midst of a cold spell?!

Shorts aren’t for everyone and certainly not for me! However add brown tights and a slouchy cable knit jumper to cover the back a bit and your weekend outfit is sorted until the weather warms up! LLLB
