Built-in Choker Dresses

By now everybody knows that chokers are hot, and this season dresses happen to have one built INTO it, Yep, that’s correct. A built in choker - how cool is that? This is seriously a genius idea because it looks chic and it does all of the work for you.

For the past 11 months (and more), it’s been all about the ’90s choker trend revival. Skinny or wide, satin or velvet, it makes no difference — the tight necklace style has taken over and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. Sorry lace-up dresses, there's a new dress on the scene ready to steal your shine. Meet the choker dress: Part-turtleneck, part-halter, the dress is everything you never knew you wanted.  Built in choker dresses are a fuss-free way to rock this trend.

Tropical Printed Pencil Skirts

Tropical pencil skirts and exotic prints are a great look for this summer and are a fun way to mix things up in your wardrobe. Tropical prints can be small, delicate pieces or big and bold with plenty of colour.

Wear these show-stopper skirts with a top in a solid colour from the print, to add a little refinement to your ensemble, add a block heel and as usual for a busy print, keep accessories to a minimum. If anything, wear simple and dainty gold jewellery.

Remember—when you wear a loud print, the rest of your outfit should stick to only one or two more colours (including your accessories)!

How to Wear Victorian Blouses

How to Embrace Victorian-Inspired Clothing Trend

While the Victorian trend may seem over the top to some, there are ways to wear it without looking like you’ve time traveled in from 1850. Because there isn’t anything more romantic than ruffles, lace, and high-neck collars and I can’t wait to wear some of these beautiful blouses. 

The easiest way is a lace turtleneck ruffled white shirt, that looks fab with your high waisted trousers, a simple a-line skirt, or your favourite skinny jeans.

While these blouses can steal the spotlight, they do look great layered. Style them under blazers, biker jackets, dresses, and sweaters. This kind of blouse can look great under a short-sleeved cashmere tee, a grey tweed sheath dress, a classic pantsuit, a distressed denim jacket, a v-neck merino sweater. You’ll find a blouse of this type can be quite versatile no matter your personal style.

The simple Victorian take: a bit of sheer, white lace, ruffles in either a shirt, a dress, a skirt. Paired with a denim item it’ll be a very chic fresh look.

You just can't lose with a Victorian blouse. With jeans, a midi skirt, mannish trouser… it always looks the business.
