Friday Frock O’clock

There’s been a bit of an undercurrent of a trend going on this season that I am really loving, fifties chic. It’s a trend that seems to surface every summer and Mad Men is of course adding fuel to the fashion fire, with their sexy costumes. When it comes to the fifties, I’m not a huge fan of the stereotypical full skirted prom style dresses, but the trend I’m loving just now is more desperate housewives, all chic cocktail dresses, fitted shifts and candy colours.


The Beverley Dress from Coast, £145

I love yellow and this lemon shade is much easier to wear than most. The thin belt is a cute finishing touch to nip in your waist and the subtle gradient of colour is achieved with converging polka dots, which gives a classic shape a dose of fun. It’s perfect for a wedding or event this summer and I can just see it with Pimms on the lawn.

Happy weekend readers,

Love,

Spotted: Warehouse SS12

Last season one of my favourite high street stores was Warehouse, without a doubt. It really had every trend covered at a great price point and didn’t lack quality, unlike other high street brands.

So I was excited to see their take on the Spring/Summer 2012 collections and share them with you here. Last week, I was afraid some of you took me too literally when I shared Topshop’s SS12 collections. Throughout January I’ll be sharing other pre-season collections and hopefully you will see themes emerge and pick out some trends that you’ll be rocking come the warmer weather, whilst making sure that any early buys work for your Summer wardrobe too.

I couldn’t see myself wearing what basically amounts to pastels when I started to look at early SS12 pictures but I’m starting to warm to them, especially the clever mixing of tones within one colour palette and the flashes of neon accenting.

Sports chic is a trend that seems to surface regularly in fashion and I love this zippered nude top. The minimal details lend an expensive look to this trend.

Always a fan of print, I’m already thinking about how I can make this work in my wardrobe – my money’s on a printed pencil skirt, made wearable with a colour blocked top.

And lastly, the most wearable trend here I think. It’s got your occasion wear sorted, works for the formal office and feels the most familiar. Think Desperate Housewives and you’re there.

So, how are you feeling about this selection readers? I’d love to hear if you’re warming up to the trends and how you’ll be wearing them…
