3 SS15 Trends To Wear Now

 MESH 

With many collections featuring cut outs with mesh overlay we couldn't forget this trend which is already proving to be very popular with celebrities and fashion bloggers. 

HOW TO WEAR : We aren't all daring enough to opt for all sheer everything so pair your sheer items with opaques for an on trend but elegant look. We recommend sheer panel t shirts with wide leg pants and heeled sandals. 

TURQUOISE 

 

All of us are dreaming of being on a white sand beach with turquoise waters... Far away from the grey UK weather. However for now we may have to settle for gorgeous shades of blue and turquoise in our wardrobe which have been spotted several times during fashion week for Ss15 including Elie Saab's beautiful collection at PFW featuring aquamarine and jewel toned blues featured above.

HOW TO WEAR : Mix your blue palette with white to create a beautiful summery contrast. Add jewel tones to add depth and glamour.

GRAPHIC MONOCHROME

The classic monochrome was a sure winner this SS15 incorporated into graphic prints to create a new and exciting update. Holly Fulton's intricate designs were super wearable with a relaxed slightly oversized feel for a casual but stylish look. Monochrome is here to stay.

HOW TO WEAR : Monochrome is a great trend as its so easy to wear and isn't too intimidating. With the help of monochrome you can look perfectly polished with minimum effort. Pair a printed black t shirt with some jeans and heeled black ankle boots.

Wedding Guest - Do's and Don'ts

Got a wedding (or six) coming up and struggling to find something that is right for the occasion?

DO... Choose a midi length dress over mini
Midi length is a super flattering and elegant length plus it's perfect for wedding guest attire!

 

DON'T... Wear new shoes

Choose shoes that you will be able to move in and won't kill you after half an hour. It's best not to wear brand new shoes to a wedding as you won't have had a chance to break them in. 

DO...Check the dress code in advance
Black tie or casual day time wedding? Checking the dress code is important so you don't turn up to a day time wedding in a full length sequin gown or vice versa - eek. 

DO...Always have a little black dress in your wardrobe

Avoid the last minute wardrobe panic by always having a trusty black dress on hand to help in tricky situations. Add a few accessories to liven it up such as coloured or printed court shoes.

DON'T... Wear white, cream, ivory etc...
Little obvious, no? Wearing white can be considered a major sin in the world of weddings if you are a guest. Always check the dress code in advance if the bride and groom have asked for a specific dress code. Remember, it's the brides day!

DO... Wear jewel tones
Pastels can be great for wedding guests, however jewel tones such as emerald can look great, especially for Summer. 

DON'T... Over-do embellishement on dresses for day-time weddings. If you want a bit of sparkle in your outfit, use accessories to add that extra something.
