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.

We LOVE a long weekend! You can’t beat having an extra day to party and planning what outfits to wear.  I’ve chosen three pieces from our new Spring Collection which are so easy to style you can wear them with everything!

Our Gold and Pearl Layer Necklace is such a beautiful piece of jewellery – the gold really sparkles and the dainty pearls add an extra bit of detail to make it look really pretty.  Layer Necklaces are a big trend for SS15 and great for holidays too.

MollieBracelet

I can see me wearing our new Mollie Bracelet all Spring/Summer! I love boho style and these colours will go with everything – definitely one for the beach 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,

SS15 Trends Edit

It may still be cold outside but we’re already looking ahead to SS15 and getting excited about the new trends for Spring!  There’s a real boho vibe with lots of denim, florals, fringing and crochet with designers channeling the Seventies with retro prints and nostalgic suede.  Military fashion also featured on the SS15 catwalks inspiring us with beautiful tailoring and khaki utility details. One of my favourite Spring trends is Geometric style which covers so many different elements with graphic shapes, stripes, circles and squares featuring both in the cut and print of SS15 designs.

Our New SS15 Collection features jewellery and handbags inspired by the new season trends and we love styling our accessories with high street pieces to create an overall on-trend look.  There are so many different ways to wear our statement jewellery this Spring we cannot wait to style them and see how you put all your looks together too!

This first Ways To Wear is a boho influenced outfit featuring our Tassel Feather Necklace and Jaimie Fringe Bag in Tan.

Ways to Wear: September

Autumn/Winter is my favourite season and I can’t wait to wear lots of snug layers with stylish totes and going all glam with fab jewels and cute clutches! September has seen lots of transitional style incorporating new season pieces into our wardrobes to satisfy our early yearning for AW14 fashion.

Both pearls and chokers are set to be huge for the new season and our New Pearl + Rhinestone Collar Necklace looks amazing on and covers both trends.
