Boss in Blue

boss spring 2016

Boss’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection boasted beautiful hues of blue in the form of a two tone cocoon coat, blue animal print tailored suits and collared dresses. This pastel shade is a classic and my favorite Spring/Summer shade, particularly styled in this way with black shoes and accessories to create a chic and smart look. Here I have found a few powder blue pieces to throw into your wardrobe to nail this future trend before the rest!

Platforms are a hit at the moment, particularly with the 70’s trends which are key for Summer 2015 and can be found in all the highstreet shops and department stores. I love these Zara Leather Platform Heels £49.99 as they have a suede finish (another on point trend) and the chunky heel makes them so much easier to strut in. Wear them with some black highwaisted shorts and a flowy tucked in blouse for a pretty summer look.

High neck jumpers were commonly found in the collection and would be a fab way of making use of this shade. This comfy and relaxed French Connection Spring Mozart high neck Jumper for £69, will create a relaxed look paired with some skinny ankle grazing black jeans and some black and white patent flats (like Boss styling) and a cute matching mini tote bag.

Cocoon coats are going to be big this fall with designers such as Max Mara using them in shows over 1950’s style pencil skirts and knit jumpers. This coat is a huge bargain and perfect to grab now while it’s on sale ready for the autumn and perfect for when it gets a little chilly on summer nights. This Missguided Lena Oversized Cocoon Coat Powder Blue for £20 would look fab for casual looks of jeans and jumpers or to be worn to drinks in the city over a mini dress.

This is a very simple piece, but from the looks of it mini skirts are very much a stylish piece at the moment and would be worth grabbing to wear on nights out or casually with an oversized jumper and some Nike trainers. This Pretty Little Thing Emilia Powder Blue Crepe Mini Skirt is only £6 and a basic staple piece for your wardrobe this summer.

NYFW 2014 has seen some gorgeous trends and one of my favourites is the modern take on a classic 1950’s style midi skirt. Its a perfect spring and summer style which can be dressed up and down. I chose this fab River Island black and white check midi skirt (£30) with the Topshop cutaway tank top (£10 Such a bargain!), which is very fitting with the monochrome trend which has been seen on so many catwalks. Finally I added a cute cross necklace with some vintage feel glasses and a killer pair of platforms, a perfect look straight off a New York runway.

Yay for Jacquard!

When I spotted this swinging 60’s vintage style Topshop crop, I fell in love. The awesome colours and patterns make this top a statement piece of an outfit. For that reason, the bottoms and shoes should remain simple I think, this is why I paired the plain black disco pants with the platform wedge heels with a hint of red to add a little more colour. The disco pants go perfectly with the party top and create a chic 60’s look, particularly paired with some round Lennon style glasses!
