SS16 Trends: Nineties

SS16 BLOG POST

Satin Slip Dress – Topshop

Shaggy Fur Coat – Topshop Unique

Platform Shoes – Topshop

Nineties fashion is set to be huge for SS16 and we’ve been inspired by the ‘underwear as outerwear’ trend for our first new season Ways to Wear.  The Saint Laurent SS16 Collection was a gorgeous variation of slinky satin slip dresses worn with shaggy fur or biker jackets and wellies – perfect for festival season.  Channel your inner Kate Moss/Courtney Love at Glastonbury and you’ve nailed the trend!

Models wearing chokers and chains also dominated the catwalks and we’ve incorporated these pieces into our SS16 Jewellery Collection along with dainty necklaces, midi rings and statement boho necklaces for a real nineties and festival vibe.

Our New Gold Marlie Torque Necklace is a real statement piece and I’ve teamed it with our Gold Open Chain Bangle to accessorize this Nineties look.

AW15 Trends: Victoriana

Lace Cami Top – Glamorous at Topshop

Pencil Skirt – River Island

Lace Blouse – Dorothy Perkins

Black Pointed Heels – River Island

I love the dark Gothic romanticism of the Victoriana trend and it was all over the catwalks for AW15. Designers used lots of lace to re-create the dramatic glamour of this era and lots of beautiful jewels to complete the look.

Our New Olivia Jewel Necklace is so pretty with its dark blue, plum and silver rhinestones and has a real vintage feel.  It fits perfectly with the Victoriana trend and is a beautiful statement piece for this time of year and especially for party season!

Black Suede Bralet – River Island

Black Caged Heels – River Island

It’s that time of year where it’s not quite Autumn yet but there are lots of new tempting AW15 pieces here already starting to showcase the new season trends.  Boho Style is still huge for Autumn with lots of suede, fringing and platforms and also Seventies-style prints.  For this transeasonal look I’ve mixed up elements of boho style with a more tailored chic evening look which will look amazing for the August Bank Holiday.

Ways to Wear: Seventies

seventies style smashglam  ss15

Black Embroidered Tee – Topshop

Palazzo Trousers – Miss Selfridge

Fringe Gilet – Topshop

Camel Platform Shoes – Topshop

Seventies fashion is a massive mainstream trend this Spring/Summer.  Whether you adopt a complete head to toe inspired look or choose selected Seventies-style pieces it’s one of the most relaxed and fun ways to dress.  This bohemian style is dominated by warm colours, prints and textures with key pieces such as flared trousers, suede skirts, maxi dresses, platforms, fringing and crochet all playing a major role.

I love these Miss Selfridge palazzo trousers and I think our Mimi Folk Earrings really compliment the colours in the boho tile print.

This Topshop Fringe Gilet is such an amazing statement piece and can be worn so many different ways it’s definitely a SS15 Seventies staple!  I’ve chosen our new Robyn Handbag as it’s a simple and stylish accessory to complete the look.  It can be worn as a clutch or with the strap as a shoulder bag or cross body handbag and the light camel colour and faux suede detail nod to the Seventies era too.

Our Mono Tote Bag is a really cute accessory with faux fur detail and adds style to any outfit.  I love classic tailoring and monochrome always looks really chic!  The sleeveless trench jacket is so popular right now and paired with these stunning lace up heels from Public Desire gives the look a real utiltarian feel which is a massive SS15 trend.

Hope you have a great Bank Holiday,
