SUNGLASSES…THE LATEST LOOKS

“What is the latest look in Sunglasses this season?”

Nothing refreshes your summer look like a new pair of specs. A cool pair of shades will not only provide your eyes with essential sun protection, but getting your specs right, can be a make or break to your entire outfit.
 
This summer we are seeing the retro cat-eye, tinted coloured lenses, funky geometric shapes, round, flat tops, aviators and thin rims.
 
Jade and I have put together some pics of some of our favourite celeb looks this season.

THE LATEST MUST HAVE BAG

” What’s the latest must have bag for the season?”

At STYLED BY JADE we love a statement handbag. It’s a crucial accessory to compliment your outfit. With the right bag you can make an impressive style statement.
 
Choosing a handbag for the right outfit and the right occasion can be overwhelming with so many handbag styles and shapes on offer. It is important to differentiate between a day bag and an evening bag and to correctly coordinate the right bag to the right outfit to avoid a mismatch in styles.
 
We have put together the ultimate spring/summer handbag trends for all occasions .
 
This season we are seeing wicker and basket bags, micro bags, metallic bags, snake skin bags, drawstring bags, floral bags, backpacks and of course not to be forgotten the revival of the fanny pack.

KIMONO TREND

Create high drama to your outfit this season with a silky, lightweight floral Kimono. This charming Japanese inspired trend is so chic and feminine.
 
A kimino adds just the right amount of coverage without causing you to overheat in our hot Aussie sun and provides the perfect amount of sun protection.
 
Short, long, with long bellowing sleeves, the Kimono can be left open flowing over swimwear, denim shorts and a tee or done up around the waist like a dress. The kimono is the must-have addition to update your summer 2017 wardrobe.

OVERSIZED FASHION

The oversized fashion trend…

This season we are seeing no shortage of the oversized fashion trend in dresses, pants and shirts. This trend is not for everyone and can make you look completely overwhelmed. 

At STYLED BY JADE we recommend creating your oversized statement with one oversized piece per outfit. Oversized garments are not traditionally figure flattering, so pair your oversized piece back with well fitted garments to create balance and a more shapely silhouette keeping your look effortlessly chic.

Let’s take a look at some of our favourite celebrity  looks.

KITTEN HEEL COMBACK

It’s a welcome comeback to this seasons must-have shoe, the kitten heel.  Push those sky high stilettos to the back of the wardrobe and say hello to style and comfort.

The kitten heel has made a major appearance strutting down the catwalks at this seasons spring/summer fashion shows. Leading the pack were Dior, Celine and Gucci with this vintage feminine look. 

Embrace the kitten heel that is heavily embellished, metallic or a block colour. This look is complete with a sling back or a pointed toe. Your feet will be delighted with your pretty and practical choice.

Here are some of our favourites for the season.

THE DECONSTRUCTED SHIRT…

A trend we are loving right now is the deconstructed shirt. A deconstructed shirt is an effortlessly chic button down shirt modernised with a sexy feminine twist.

A modern deconstructed shirt is a staple for this season.  Elaborate oversized sleeves, backless cut-outs, asymmetrical hems, off the shoulder layers, wrap arounds and ruffles are all leading the way in street style fashion.

Team your shirt with denim shorts, a denim skirt or a frayed cigarette leg denim pant.  Add a sneaky heel to glamorise the look or go for a casual sport luxe sneaker.

FLORAL AFFAIR

With spring in full bloom, we have seen the runway rebirth of 80’s inspired glam silhouettes. Spring/Summer 2017 is filled with refreshing fun floral summer prints.

Floral designs and motifs are endless on all garments whether it be embroidered, embossed, lace or printed. Be adventurous and mix textures. The bolder and more dramatic this season the better.

For this seasons ultimate look invest in big, bright, bold floral blooms from head to toe. Yes, that includes matching your footwear to your outfit. Have fun in this seasons upbeat and energetic look.

Here are some of our favourite bold runway looks.

ROMANTIC RUFFLES

It’s all about feminine ruffles this Spring/Summer 2017 for us girls.  Ruffles are a great way to create a dramatic on trend look. You will love the fun and flirty ruffled collars, sleeves, hemlines and all over layers and layers of flouncy garments on offer this season.

Make your presence known with this girly and romantic trend. Ruffles create a playful eye catching feel adding glamour, movement and dimension to your look. At STYLED BY JADE, we love the revival of this 80s trend.

When pairing your frills keep it simple with clean cut pieces to keep your look elegant and balanced. We recommend when wearing ruffles keep your accessories to a minimum to avoid  overloading your outfit.
