Easter weekend is here and we thought we would share some style advice to make for a fashionable few days ahead.
Meadow Print Maxi Dress
A floral day dress is great for a garden party or going out for lunch. With a tie at the back, it gives the wearer the ability to cinch in at the waist for a flattering look.
Protected Species Commuter
Depending where you'll be spending your easter weekend and what activities you'll be getting up to, this protected species waterproof jacket is perfect for keeping dry and looking stylish at the same time.
Hydestyle London Bag
A big shiny metallic bag is a must have this season! It can really help lift a casual outfit so why not show off your statement bag around town.
Nomads Print Jacket
The star print jacket by Nomads is a fantastic reminder of the brands genius for creating affordable and ethically produced clothes that are actually stylish. Not only are they contemporary but also are different enough from anything you'd find on the high street.
Fari Short Sleeved Top
This printed top is perfect for a chilled weekend at home as it is bright, cheerful and almost looks like a pattern of tiny eggs!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and thank you for taking time to read our blog post this week! Links to any of the products mentioned are available and are also stocked in store.
Statement stripes are a massive trend this spring. Cara Delevingne recently rocked this monochrome striped esemble out in Paris.

The top is £19 and the trousers are £29. Comfortable and lightweight this duo can be worn casually or dressed up with a big belt and heels. It can also can be worn separately to go with an array of colours and styles.

From the range of new season garments in store, here's an little overview of some of our favourites.
First up is the slouch print Tunic Dress. The lovely abstract pattern makes this the perfect daytime dress and lightweight, making it versitile to wear with leggings, as a beach cover up or on its own.
The next garment we love is the Pyramid Short Jacket. This box style jacket is wonderful for dressing up or down and matching with an array of colours.
Finally, the last piece to appreciate is the Meadow Print Trousers because what would a summer wardrobe be without florals?! Lightweight and good for packing away for a summer holiday, these trousers also have a comfortable elasticated waist.

This weeks blog post is all about prints. Including a look at some fashion trend setters who wear bold prints plus some fashion tips on wearing prints yourself.
Printed fashion is not for everyone and can be slightly risky if you are unsure where to start so be bold, here are some ideas for you on the best way to wear them.
Let's take a look at recent trend setters who wear lots of prints...
Alexa Chung - Works for British Vogue, attends fashion shows, has her own clothing range, street style inspiration and wears a mix of high street and designer labels.
Olivia Palermo - Fashion writer, attends fashion shows, endorses products and is known for wearing bold prints.
Fearne Cotton - Trend setter, wears bold outfits, has her own clothing range and creates street style inspiration.
Three pieces of fashion advice for when wearing prints...
Fashion advice 1: Do not be afraid to wear more than one type of print and wear it with confidence.
Fashion Advice 2: Large prints are usually more flattering but prints are meant to be fun so be bold. Prints draw attention to certain parts of the body so use this method to help balance out your body shape.
Fashion Advice 3: Pick one colour from the main print and use this colour to accessorise or wear this colour in another part of the outfit.
