Flare it out
Marks and Spencer win again with this beautiful look revolving around one key piece – the satin flares. Don’t worry, they are surprisingly easy to wear and look best paired with something a little more casual; think a fitted cashmere sweater or sumptuous velvet tee. Effortless elegance!
Lace it up
Lace was all over the catwalks at Bristol Fashion Week – we had a whole scene dedicated to the gothic glamour it brings
. If you invested in some lace pieces after seeing the show, dig them out and feel smug as they are a key trend for the season. If you’re yet to buy, fret not – it’s readily available all over the high street and New Look are leading the pack, head to their huge store at The Mall to browse a selection of party pieces.
Pink is set to be the hue of the year for SS17, so why not get ahead of the game with this metallic two piece from River Island? Definitely one to wear to ensure you’ll be centre of attention, shrinking violets need not apply! A two piece is a great alternative to a dress – just as formal, but also, a little playful and fun, too.
Velvet is such a key fabric for the winter months and this floral dress from Next encompasses two trends in one – the fabric and the print! Floral fabrics are a perennial favourite and add a touch of softness and a little extra to a simple dress shape.
A maxi dress is a sure fire showstopper, and this heavily fringed number by Phase Eight is bound to command attention. A true classic, it’s a beautiful style that will provide fashion props for years to come, as it won’t date, but continually flatters and complements.
