Don’t reach for the Little Black Dress. Try something different! We have reviewed some of this seasons top trends and added some style tips to make sure you stand out from the crowd yet still feel stylish and confident.
Jumpsuits – The New LBD
A simple black jumpsuit is a ‘must have’ and is so versatile. You can create a party outfit with three key items: jumpsuit, heels and bag. It is so easy to team accessories with a black jumpsuit, go funky with coloured heels and matching clutch or a statement necklace or add some sparkle to your outfit with an embellished clutch and patent heels.
Lace is a key trend at the moment and having lace detail on your jumpsuit, like our favourite from Vero Moda, and you are well on your way to being the best dressed at the parties this season!
The hot trend this season is the kimono. Go wild and bring new glamour to an outfit by adding a chic kimono to create a gorgeous evening look. There are many embellished and sparkly kimonos that will add some fun to your look. For a less formal or lunchtime event add some style with a patterned or fringed number!
Also if you are someone that loves to dress up but are always conscious of your arms then the kimono is the perfect accessory to your outfit to ensure you are feeling fabulous and party ready!
Faux leather is perfect for the party season. Take a risk and swap “safe” velvet for “risqué” faux leather but make sure you team it with appropriate accessories to keep the look classy.
A burgundy PU shift dress is one of our fave’s this year! The rich colour adds some sophistication to the outfit to counterbalance the leather look. It can be worn with bare legs if you are brave or looks just as good with a pair of tights and heels!
Or if you aren’t the dress kind of girl try a pair of faux leather skinnies, they are the perfect base to any outfit and don’t have to cost a fortune! A mixture of textures can help create a gorgeous look, a pair of structured skinnies teamed with a chiffon top is the perfect combination of feminine and masculine creating a sexy look!
