Pretty Summer Shorts

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

Matthew Williamson Papaya Cotton ShortsPastels with hint of strong colour will be a key colour palette for spring / summer and coral is set to be a huge player by way of vivid colours.

I just love these papaya cotton shorts by Matthew Williamson in eye-popping peachy-coral.

The origami style pleating at each pocket give them a pretty, luxe feel and make these a great investment for the summer wardrobe.

Perfect for day and night, team with a simple pale toned vest and flat gladiators for daytime. Simply switch out the flats for spindly heels and throw over a cute blazer or jacket for evening time.

You can pick yourself up a pair for £250 from Net-a-porter.


New Look Trouser: Hareem!

Friday, June 13th, 2008

Hareem TrouserThe Hareem trouser is a popular shape this season, it’s perfect for the summer due to its loose and airy fit and is particularly handy for those who like to cover their bottom half on holiday. The trouser shape is ¾ length and therefore covers all those wobbly bits, fantastic! It is extremely flattering for all body shapes and is therefore a must this season.

Topshop is a great stop for Hareem trousers, this particular pair is from the store and costs £22; perfect for those daring types, however if you prefer something more subtle check out their cream linen pair of Hareems, they’re just as fab!


High Waisted Shorts

Monday, April 7th, 2008

topshop-high-waisted-shorts.jpgLast summer saw some fab new trends and high waisted shorts amongst others such as the floor sweeping maxi dresses were one that never should be forgotten.

Flattering and versatile high waisted shorts create an hour glass figure by clinching the waist. These Topshop High Waisted shorts do just the trick and in the dark denim colour they naturally become even more flattering. The nautical trend is in full swing so the anchor button detailing matched with a nautical top will create a fashion savvy look. Pair with cute flats in the day and pointed stilettos at night.

Get your Topshop High Waisted Shorts at Topshop online costing £28.


The Clothes Show Live: Crazy Colours

Monday, December 17th, 2007

Heres what you can expect to be wearing during the warmer months of 2008 – exciting hey!! I love the mixture of crazy colours and the daring patterns of spots and stripes, it looks like the bolder the better, see what you can get away with. Mix greens with yellows and oranges, blues with reds and yellow, anything goes!

Crazy Catwalk Colours

It looks like socks will be a big part of the outfit too, I personally love the stripy knee-highs but am not to keen on the colorful ankle socks, what do you think? All I can say is I’m looking forward to summer. More pics…


Get The Look: Casual Holiday Girl

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Miss Selfridge Summer LookWhen I’m on holiday I like to be comfortable so I tend to wear looser fitted clothes and opt for tops that will cover my shoulders because they always get burnt! I have put together this ensemble from the Miss Selfridge Website that I think would be a great casual look for the daytime on a summer holiday.

First things first we need a nice summery colour so the pink top is the main focus of the outfit; it has a lovely square neckline and appears fitted although it is actually quite loose, it covers the hips in case those cheeky denim shorts are causing a bit of a muffin top. The top costs just £14 and is also available in turquoise or white. The shorts are a must have this season, you can wear them with anything, flats or heals day or night and they cost just £25.

To finish off our casual summer look we have some large shades in case the heat makes us sweaty and we need to cover the main area of our faces (£14), a dainty pendant necklace (£6 reduced from £12), some cute flat jewelled sandals (£25) and a white and pink starry beach bag to carry your necessities (5).
