WOMENS TREND: BRALETTE + TOPS

7b55f5257ad017b3228d06ffb520b5d7Once upon a time a visible bra would have been looked at as taboo, tacky and completely unnecessary. However these days the more lace shown the better. Feminine, sexy and versatile lace bralettes are made to be shown under a loose singlet or sheer shirt. Pretty lingerie is the perfect option when the weather is so hot outside you want to wear as little as possible or when you are feeling a little bit confident and want to show a touch of sexiness. Seen in numerous street style blogs this is a trend that will continue into the cooler months peeking through a loose knitted jumper or shirt.464872b825d9f812ba742f1f8dc77ea3 img7017aBright-Bralette-Cosabella-N d2e13f0612d65001bab2e531f06b422f Love a lace bra:Lace

Stripes are an absolute wardrobe must have. A wardrobe staple throughout the decades, stripes first came in to vogue in the 1920s and have not gone out of fashion since.

The timelessness of the print is evident when you look back over pictures of style icons from the past century such as James Dean, Audrey Hepburn and Edie Sedgwick.

Item of the Week: New Year, New Accessories

b4bf505ae66111ab04a921fa19c5d529

I don’t know about you but one of the top things on my resolutions list for 2014 was to invest in some quality and timeless accessories. I seem to always be buying an endless stream of clothes and neglecting the small things that can change one outfit into something else. Sometimes it’s not about the big picture but the small details that count. Got your favourite dress? Pair it with sandals and a cute bag for day or for night add a bold ear cuff and heels. For the guys they can change with shoes, hats and watches. Take your pic and make it your goal this season to have pieces that will last a lifetime.
