Style Theory: Every week I will bring you a few ideas of items that have caught my eye and will bring your look up to date and see you through the next few seasons...
First Finery: I am slightly obsessed with this online store at the moment, their vision is 'to make modern, inspiring, sophisticated styling accessible, without compromise on quality' They keep to their promise, their range is beautifully tailored with a cool edge. Their prices are affordable and as this is not a hugely well-known brand at the moment (although I have no doubt it will be soon) you can be safe in the knowledge you will be the only one wearing it to an event.
Here are my Finery top selection:
|Carter Stripe Mixdaxi Dress £85|
This is a beautiful, statement dress, perfect to wear to a wedding or summer event. The detailing is stunning and the peplum layer adds interest and also would detract from a mum tum. For a wedding I would wear with high black or nude shoes or for a more comfortable option wear with gold, flat, strappy gladiator style sandals. I have ordered this dress for my Brother in laws wedding this month.
I love these Whistles shoes
These are the style of shoes you buy and can wear year after year with any type and colour of dress, jumpsuit, skirt or trousers, endlessly useful and so flattering on as they elongate your legs. My idea of high heel perfection.
Jumpsuits are now a must have in every womans wardrobe. Incredibly comfortable, practical and flattering, the midi length of this jumpsuit is perfect for 2015, the print is eye-catching and culotte style skirt has pockets.. I would style with my mango black strappy flat sandals (£18)..
This dress looks extremely designer-esque. A timeless shirt dress style with edgy floral monochrome fabric. Wear with high strappy sandals or nude shoes for a chic wedding guest/ summer party look..
These shoes are incredibly comfortable, leather and so on trend right now.
|Tilla Point Mulle £150|
|Waveley Linear Scrawl Tie Waist Jumpsuit £65|
|Mango Strap Sandals £17.99|
|M&S Gillie Lace Up Stilletos £35|
So different. all leather and neutral/metallic colours that can be worn day and night. These accessories will add that something different to your summer wardrobe, a 2015 update that will refresh your look.
This is an investment piece for next season as 'bohemian, pretty romantic' blouses are going to be a key trend in AW15. Wear now with denim shorts and mango strappy sandals (above) wear in the winter with black skinny jeans/flares and knee high boots.
|Clockwise from top left: Cheval Leather Ankle Strap Sandals £45|
Bostall frame Handbag £99
Leyton Leather Spat Sandals £49
Lotus Leather High Heel Shoes £119
|French Connection Blouse £125|
The Topshop Dress
|Topshop Ottoline Silk Dress £225|
This is a pricey dress but utterly beautiful. Perfectly styled by Alexa Chung with black pointed shoes, no accessories needed the dress does all the talking. Wear with black opaques and knee high boots in the winter. A dream dress and as I am about a foot smaller than Alexa it woud be a decent length on me! Out of stock at the moment online but I have been assured there is more stock coming in soon.
These are a few of the items that have caught my eye in the last couple of weeks and are on my shopping list that resides in my head and slowly I can make my way through it! What pieces have caught our eye this week, what are your fashion fixes this season? As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time Frances xxx
