Summer Brights

Bright candy pink and sunshine yellow were all over the designer runways for this summer. Both have definitely made it into the shops with most in store collections having items in these colours.  They look great with white or cream which are also key colours this season.  All suggested colours look great with light faded denim. Everyone should have at least one piece of true denim in their wardrobe this year!  Remember to think about which tone suits you best depending on whether you have warm or cool skin. If the bright colours don’t suit…you can always opt for a muted or colour  pastel version.

 Spring 2017 is the season of ‘The Denim’: Denim is having one of its moments in time and a new pair of jeans is one of the easiest ways to upgrade your wardrobe.   Be prepared as we are not talking stretchy skinny type jeans, oh no, they are now being put on the back burner.

We’re talking classic jeans, proper denim. The ones some of us  have forgotten all about or haven’t even met yet. People have been wearing so many stretchy types of denim styles. I think that people have forgotten what it is like to wear real denim. Proper twill denim the type you have to wear in…and once you have you will never want to take them off. It’s not just jeans…its denim everything skirts, shirts, jackets and dresses. You can also have your denim  personalized  with embroidery and badges and patches

This time it is about mixing things up with different cuts, styles and textures. Embrace the Denim the style choices are amazing! You can choose from boyfriend cut….tapered, cropped leg, wide leg…time to be adventurous and break away from your skinny jeans! Let’s be honest we don’t all suit them!

Skinny jeans have been in fashion for so long most of us have forgotten or don’t know what 0ther trouser styles suit them.  We have started to feel conditioned into thinking that we all look great in them and actually that is not the case.

Here are a few tips to help you Hour glass and pear shapes look great in high waisted wide leg jeans…these balance your thighs, make your legs look longer and emphasise you great waistline.  Straights and Inverted triangle shapes go for boyfriend jean or a boot leg. If you have a wide waistline go for mid length shapes and avoid the high waistlines.

In my opinion it is always best to buy a good quality denim that will stand the test of time and not sag or go baggy.  For a middle of the range price try Levis or Wrangler.

 

 

Picnic 1,14

For That Special Picnic

 

It’s July hurray the season for summer picnics and barbeques. At the moment the weather is absolutely fantastic for sitting in the park, hanging out in your local cafe. The importance is that you are with your friends taking in the sun and eating delicious summer foods. This is also the time to shine in a newly purchased summer outfit. Let’s face it the weather in the UK is not so great…we need to embrace the moments when we can actually wear our summer clothes to the max to feel free and light without silently wishing we could put on our winter jacket also. The key purchase I think for the cold spots in the day is a lovely light denim jacket that you can slip on and off when you need to. Oh and an umbrella but that goes without saying doesn’t it?

I would like to suggest that on a really warm UK day that we change into three different summer outfits per day to make damn sure we get the best out of our summer wardrobes. But this would just be silly!! But this does in turn make me think that saving your favourite summer outfit for best means you may wear it 5 times…what a waste! So get it out and look your best…shine at that picnic. Oh and don’t forget to use sun cream.
Here are few chosen outfits for that special picnic! “Lisa Showman”
