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.

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.

Online Style

This week my Your Style post features Amanda Start – the U.K. blogger behind The Online Stylist. I like to drop by to her New Forest H.Q  to view her treasure trove of lifestyle, fashion, home and beauty posts. Above post: Posted on 2014 March 13 2014 under, Five Spring Must Haves by Online Stylist. 


Amanda Start‘s blog – a forty-something fashion find.

Hush – harem pants

grey trousers, grey jacket, summer sandals,

Harem pants are a lot more wearable than you might think. Harem pants are not just for summer festival fans or Goa beach holidays. A perfect pair will be easy on the waist, loose fitting, but still with shape. They can be styled up for work too.

Hush’s soft colour mix: stone greys and blues with summer jacket  and harem pants, featured above.

They suit women of all shapes and sizes and designers have modified the baggy crutch area in the pattern cutting, from the original harem pant style.

Four years on, and my own black silk harem pants from Benetton, have not dated in style. If you are looking for some print designs, check out Miss Selfridge here, although they are not strictly harem pants.

Take yourself out of your comfort zone and try some on next time you are out shopping, as an alternative to summer jeans, baggy linens and Capri pants this summer. Style  with heels or the celebrity’s favourite summer sandals by Ancient Greek.
