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.

SHOE TRENDS FOR SPRING SUMMER 2016…

Shoe lovers rejoice…I’ve rounded up the some of the best Spring Summer 2016 shoe trends from the Fashion Week runways, just for you. From sneakers to block heels, slides, pointed flats and of course, sandals, it’s all here…

ON POINT
Embrace the flat of the season, the pointed flat!
The Spring/Summer shoe trends bring a bunch of flat looks for fans of comport and femininity combined. Pointed toe shoes are a flawless way to add sophistication to any outfit.
The perfect mix of comfort and style, a pointy toe flat is a great choice for a casual ensemble, work outfit or even for a night out.

SLIDES
Available in both closed in toe, or open toe.. This is an easy ‘go to’ shoe for Spring Summer. Team it back with a smart casual outfit, for a more conservative look, put your fav high heeled version with your party dress or wear a open toe pair on weekends with boyfriend jeans and your favourite white t-shirt… for the effortless chic look!

STREET SNEAKERS
Possibly the most common look on the runway for the Spring Summer, is the pair of laced up sneakers. Sneakers are here to stay, but who says they have to be plain white? Get excited with a colored trainer, leopard print or a metallic pair…. An easy way to add that sport lux feel to any outfit!!

GLADIATORS
The Roman-esque sandal is not going anywhere for spring, and this season, they are taking lengths to another level!
Team them back with a gorgeous boho inspired dress, or relaxed playsuit and you have the perfect Summer Sunset outfit!

BLOCK HEELS
Chunky block heels ruled the runway, which are not only on-trend but also comfortable…. The block heel, the ’90s favourite finally making a comeback and giving your summer sandals a little lift.
Whether worn to work with cropped trousers or bare-legged with a slinky slip dress, the style is incredibly chic. Plus, there’s the whole comfort factor these shoes might be high, but they’re a whole lot more sensible than your thin stilettos. Happy feet all round!

 

 

THE TAILORED SUIT

What’s on trend for women, this Autumn / Winter?

Autumn is definitely on our door step, as the first drop of Autumn fashion has already hit the stores!! I KNOW!!
I’m still holding on to Summer, as I feel like I blinked and it’s gone!

It’s that time of year, where we’re not sure if it’s going to be a hot day, or a wet one.. but I want to share some trends to look out for, so your wardrobe can be ready for those cooler days!

THE TAILORED SUIT The tailored suit is one of the biggest trends this season.. if you work in an office or not!! It’s also an option for an after five outfit, special occasion, or just out to dinner. However this season, we are seeing it with a bit of a twist as well… yes it can be feminine and structured, but the Androgynous version is still just as strong!! Think Men’s tailoring for Women! Longer line jackets, slim ling pants and take off your heels ladies, as this version is teamed back with brogues…

AUTUMN / WINTER FASHION 2016

What’s on trend for women, this Autumn / Winter?

Autumn is definitely on our door step, as the first drop of Autumn fashion has already hit the stores!! I KNOW!!
I’m still holding on to Summer, as I feel like I blinked and it’s gone!

It’s that time of year, where we’re not sure if it’s going to be a hot day, or a wet one.. but I want to share some trends to look out for, so your wardrobe can be ready for those cooler days!

GREY’S AND NEUTRALS  If you prefer NOT to wear black and prefer a more subtle look, then this is for you!

At the moment, there is a sea of grey and neutral tones in nearly every store… and it’s been used as a complete colour palette. Grey on grey or oatmeal and camel teamed back with white… the palette is very muted and easy to wear, with the use of different textures and fabrics giving it appeal.
Coats, big chunky knits,  fine laying tops teamed back with denim and tailored pants/skirts…..and no sign of black!!

I may actually even adopt this trend this season, as I’m drawn to the grey on grey look!!!

SPECIAL OCCASION STYLING

I need a Stylist for a Special occasion!

I have the absolute pleasure of working with clients on a weekly basis…from organising their wardrobes, to taking them shopping.

However, every now and then.. I have the added pleasure, of dressing someone for a special occasion.. Wedding’s, Mother of the bride/ or groom, formals, gala events and award nights.

In mid December of last year, I had one of my regular clients contact me to find that perfect outfit for her sons Christening.
We knew exactly the style of dress that would suit Carlie, however we really struggled to find the perfect dress in Australia. So I had the pleasure of sourcing her special dress from the United States and had it sent to my client just in time, for her son’s special day.

This is my gorgeous client Carlie and her two beautiful son’s, in her Mac Duggal dress, from the US….teamed back with nude and diamonte heels from Wanted Shoes.

Thank you Carlie, it’s always a pleasure to work with you… and I’m so thrilled, that I was able to get your special dress.
You looked absolutely gorgeous! x jade

THE BLAZER…

What’s the must have piece for Winter 2016?

With Autumn knocking on our door soon, (yes it has already to start hitting the stores) the addition of a blazer can take your look from Spring/Summer to Autumn/Winter with one piece.

The blazer doesn’t have to be your traditional black or navy… this is your opportunity to be a little daring, using different colours, fabrics and textures!

Add it to your basic white tea and favourite jeans and sneakers, for a cool casual street look. Swap your jeans for a pair of chinos and leather shoes, for a more smart casual look.. or add it to a classic collard shirt and suit pants for a more corporate appropriate look.

Anyway you choose to wear your blazer, it’s going to be one of the must have’s this season and a piece that truly won’t date, but instead add value to your wardrobe!

How do you wear your blazer?
