Finding an outfit can always be a struggle when it’s comes to British festivals, especially when we are never guaranteed the sunshine. When buying an outfit for a festival the key is to remember what type of festival you are going to whether that may be music, food or art. From easy-going bohemian style looks to everyday glam, festival fashion comes in all colours, fabrics and styles. I’ve put some festival outfits together using items in store. Below are pictures of the outfits, make sure to leave a comment off your favourite one.

The grass is always greener at Eden💚

Love it or hate it, green is back. Here at Eden we have every shade possible from dark khaki, to light pistachio and olive. Green was seen all over the catwalks of Milan and Paris this Spring/Summer at fashion week. Neon green has also been a huge success with young, trend led brands such as pretty little thing and missguided. However we have stayed away from the neon this time round and have went for the more classic approach. Green is a colour that is easy to wear as it can be paired perfectly with both black and denim. If you are someone that is afraid of wearing colour then this may be the way to experiment as green can be simple and neutral when the appropriate tone is seleted. 

Here at Eden we have a vast selection of colours in store that is sure to brighten up you Spring/Summer wardrobe. In all styles of garments we have something for everyone. One of our brands “selected” have released a range of vibrant pieces, including a bright green top and dress that is now have available in store. This type of green is one of our most bold, However when paired with a printed jacket for example it creates a unique and exciting look. Our other tones of green are slightly less dramatic and are perfect all season round. Below are pictures of some of the green items we have in store. Lots of dresses are seen in this colour this year and have been popular throughout every collection from each brand. With every shade possible here at Eden we are sure to have the perfect green for you☺️

See you next week

Ways to wear ... make one garment into 3 different looks

One dress: 3 different looks

We’ve all got pieces in our wardrobe we wear only once then never see the light of day again. In this blog post I’m going to show you how to style the same garment in three different ways to make an outfit perfect for any occasion. The first piece we have is a long chiffon print dress. This b.young Dress is in a beautiful tropical, floral print which creates a feminine and delicate feel. The different coloured flowers make this dress unique and stand out from the vibrant plants on a neutral block colour background.

The first look is an outfit that would be perfect for a wedding. Wearing the dress buttoned up with a pair of heels and head piece would make this the perfect outfit for a wedding, a day at the races or any other special occasion. The dress would also be perfect for a warm vacation.

The second picture shows a holiday look with the dress being open and used as a shirt or cover up. I have paired the dress with a light vest top and white trousers to create a light and bright look that would be suitable for an evening look on your holidays. Having the dress open would also make a beautiful cover up for at the beach or around the pool. It is a quick and easy way to make an outfit look sophisticated and glamorous. The third look is a more casual piece that could be worn for day-to-day activites such as the school run, going out for dinner or meeting up with friends. By opening up the dress and pairing it with jeans, this makes the outfit comfortable and functional. 

Red Trousers: 3 different looks

The second piece I will make 3 outfits from is a pair of Selected Femme trousers. These wide leg trousers are bright red and very flattering when worn appropriately. The first outfit is a casual day to day look that is suitable for any age. Pairing these trousers with a simple tee and some trainers will create a trendy look that is comfortable and fashionable. Wide leg trousers with trainers has been a stylish look for a while that everyone seems to be copying. The second look has created a jumpsuit using a top which is in an almost identical colour. This look is very bold however can be toned down by accessorizing with basic jewellery and shoes. This outfit could be worn with a pair of black heels, making it suitable for an event or nice dinner. The final look is an extremely versatile one. You can either wear it with trainers to create a casual look or some heels to make it more formal. The black and red contrast well together and makes the outfit very wearable. These red trousers might be out of your comfort zone initially , however isn’t that when you end of feeling your best?

 

Try something new this spring and pop into Eden for some unique one off pieces. See you next week.

Holiday outfit ideas ...

Looking for fashion inspiration for your summer hols? Look no further. Summer is fast approaching and before you know it it’ll be time to pack your suitcase and say goodbye to all the stress work is causing you. Buying clothes for holidays is the perfect opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and try something new such as different prints or colours you wouldn’t normally wear. I had a look around the store and rounded up a few outfit ideas that would be perfect for any tropical adventure. When on holiday you want a mix between comfortable and dressy fashion. There’s nothing worse than wearing tight clothing in scorching heat that us Brits are most definitely not used to. I have selected a range of outfits that are breathable, light, flattering but most importantly look great.

Dresses are the perfect item to wear on holiday from their breathable structure to their comfortable style. I have selected 4 dresses from in store that I believe would be perfect for any vacation. All of these dresses can be worn either during the day with some sandals or in the evening with a pair of wedges to dress them up. Stripes are always a flattering print to wear as they create an illusion and make you appear taller. Stripes are also a print that remind me of sailing and the beach which can work well when looking for an outfit to wear to the sea side for example.

Loose trousers are also a great alternative if you don’t want to show as much skin but still want to feel comfortable. The 2 outfits I have chosen below are perfect styles for walking or going out in the evening time for a nice meal. Having a bold print on your trousers is an easy way to spice up an outfit and feel like your on holiday by wearing bright colours you may not feel comfortable wearing back home.

This jumpsuit is my favourite piece in store from its print and colour pallet. It is also a must have for when on holiday from its versatility and loose material. This jumpsuit drapes very nicely and covers anything you may not want on show. I would personally wear this jumpsuit during the day with some sandals, sunglasses and beach bag for a day of adventures in the sun.

I hope this blog post gave you some inspiration for your holiday outfits this summer. All items seen can be found in store with selected stock available on line too. I hope everyone has a fabulous summer and hope to see you in store soon.
