Lacey Lady

Valentino designer collection

Welcome to September and a change in our wardrobes for most of us.  Add a touch of lace to your existing winter wear and wardrobe classics.  Valentino’s  Fall/Winter 2014, above. You will love exploring the Valentino collection, and the winter accessories are very inspiring!

A Lace tank top can soften up work wear, weekend jeans and knitwear. Don’t pack away any summer lacey tops just yet, and take another look at your lace evening tops that may work with your daywear.

I’ve noticed that all the suggestions below, have high round necks (with the exception of the H&M cardigan), so you may need to try a camisole scoop or button-through blouse style  -whichever flatters you top half best.

Massimo Dutti cream lace top.    H&M plus size black lacey cardigan   Phase Eight powder pink lace top (great with grey work trousers!).  Phase Eight tops are very forgiving round the middle area, and there is a good choice online.

Kalico at John Lewis, in the sale - petrol blue lace top for suits, black jackets and trousers and denim days.

Affordable Designer - Carven at Avenue 23 burgundy lace top, in the sale – look at that styling colour combination, for a fresh new office look!


Azure Days…

Azure skies and the thought of turquoise seas, make me think of all things azure blue on the accessory front, this time of year.

 The Jewel Hut is a  jewellery website with a mix of well know brands, and it’s very easy to browse. Just type in the colour, gemstone or metal, and away you go! Links of London, watch above.

Add a touch of summer to your basic whites and beach front attire with shades of turquoise… I’m not really in the frame of mind for new buys, but new accessories can give you lots of style mileage. Thomas Sabo disc pendant at The Jewel Hut above, to thread onto a favourite chain.


It wouldn’t be summer without a bit of timeless Navajo style jewellery. Faux Navajo-style ring, with sterling silver oval cast, above at Essential. View these cascading drop earrings at Essential, here. Essential is a great website for gifts too, like this Eton Shamballa style bracelet watch, here in the sale.

My Style Tip - use a  silver or gold chain, and swap your pendant or charm, depending on your  outfit. It’s a good idea to collect a few pendants or charms, that will easily slip onto your favourite chain.

When summer is a distant memory, and you have packed away your summer whites – wear your new turquoise jewellery with amber and autumnal shades, to give your winter wardrobe a lift.

Emerald Street Style

My Your Style post today is taking you on a stroll down Emerald Street, for all your fashion, beauty and style updates. I love the throw over duster coats featured above – perfect for your neutral wardrobe staples.

Emerald Street is a cultural website that can be delivered to your inbox for free. You can even find out what’s trending in  the food halls – Quinoa Crisps!


Pimp up your classics!

Pimp up your fashion classic white shirt by adding some new accessories and a pair of over-sized Tory Burch designer sunglasses, for that trip to The Hamptons, (perhaps throw in an iconic Tory Burch Tunic too!).

At Net-A-Porter -Tom Binns designer jewellery  and Proenza Schouler‘s embellished block heels, will bring your classics up to date, along with the essential summer clutch.

All logo-ed up with a Tory Burch double twist bracelet,above.

Chokers and short strand necklaces are trending this summer. Top Shop’s short rope necklace, above.

Styling Tips –  You don’t have to co-ordinate your accessories; for example, mix the Top Shop short necklace (or a fine stranded choker), with a chunky bracelet (or the Tory Burch bracelet featured), to mash up your classics. You can mix silver and gold too.

Experiment - at home in front of the mirror, hunt around in your accessory draw for some forgotten necklaces and bracelets and try on with your simple t-shirt, blazer, or white shirt, until you get the desired effect.

Improvise - you may even wish to shorten some necklaces that you no longer wear and layer them up to create your own versions. Quirky accessories can really work with a classic wardrobe.

Purchase in the sale - It’s a good time to shop for accessories in the sale – they speak volumes about your style, so invest in some new ones, if you have to, and get your existing summer classics on track.
