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.

Blake Lively style

Blake Lively style
After announcing today that her and husband, Ryan Reynolds, are expecting their first child, I thought why not look at Hollywoods latest yummy mummys style! With her girl next door looks, Blake Lively always stuns in sexy and feminine outfits that make her stand out. I wanted to create an outfit which took inspirations from Blakes young and fun style. The lovely Chi Chi London lace cap dress is a great piece which looks stunning paired with gold chunky earrings and bangles, seen on Blake at past events. I have decided to add the studded Zara heels to add some edge to the outfit and they are similar to the Christian Louboutin heels she wore in New York with her gorgeous Blue Gucci pre-fall coat. Finally a little matching white clutch will look amazing for any end of summer event.

The Big Bad Boyfriend Coat

The Big Bad Boyfriend Coat
This Boyfriend coat has been on my shopping list for a while now and I really want it! The cool baggy coat is perfect for the Autumn season and looks fashionable while keeping you warm. The checked coat is a must as tartan and check have been seen on so many catwalks during fashion week. As it is a statement piece you don’t need to go mad on the whole outfit, instead buy a cute black day dress with some thick black tights to show off the coat. Add a simple black bag, a little vintage watch (or vintage looking watch, which can be found in Urban Outiftters for a much cheaper price!) and some quirky flats, like these Russell and Bromley Brewsters, for a laid back and cool look.
