Summer is here, is your wardrobe ready?

As the snow thaws and everyone begins to look toward summer, it’s easy to forget about the contents of one’s closet. For months now you’ve been bundled up against the elements, layering clothes and longing for the sun. You’re tired of the cold months stretching on seemingly without end, and now that the end is finally in sight it’s easy to get excited. Summer time is always a fun time.

Summer Dress Picture

 

As you plan summer trips and outdoor excursions, don’t forget that you need to dress for the weather. Flowing fabrics, shorter hemlines and colourful prints are hitting the shops as the last of the frost disappears and the sun starts to stay out longer.

Summer time is a great excuse to go shopping and pick up summer clothes in new and updated prints, colors and materials. Keep yourself cool and comfortable this summer with these essential summer staples.

 

Don’t skip on the white

White clothes are immensely popular in the summer, as they keep you cool while offering a lot of versatility. White tanks and tees, for example, pair very well with just about any skirt, short or pant in your closet.

Swap out your boots for some sweet sandals

Sweaty feet are no fun, so cramming your tootsies into a stifling pair of boots all summer long might have you feeling a bit grouchy. Opt instead for a pair of sandalsto suit your style. Straps, heels, clasps and colorful accents make it easy to find a pair (or three) that you’ll adore all summer long.

 

Replace your miniskirts with midi skirts

There is certainly a time and place for leg-baring minis, but midi skirts offer a bit more coverage that makes them a perfect summer staple for any occasion. From the boardroom to brunch and beyond, midi skirts will keep you cool and confident as you strut around in effortless style.

 

Don’t ditch the denim

Denim shortshave been parts of the iconic summer look for decades because they are ultra-comfortable and can be dressed up or down to suit your style needs. A white tee on top makes for a great casual look, while a button-up blouse can dial the style up a notch for those fun summer outings with friends.

 

Combine comfort and style with a maxi dress

Tight clothes aren’t the most comfortable on the hottest days of the year. A maxi dress offers you salvation from the discomfort with all of the coverage that you need to feel confident wherever you go. Long, flowing materials keep things breezy in a slew of colors and patterns that are sure to please.

 

Upgrade your sunglass game

The perfect pair of shades is the best and easiest way to finish off any summer look. Practicality and style mesh effortlessly in some beautiful sunglass frames these days, so there’s a frame for every day of the week!

 

Add accessories

Accessories like rings and bracelets are very important to turn on the style. A pave diamond ring on your finger can enhance the beauty of your well-manicured hand. A necklace will make your neck strikingly beautiful. So choose your accessories properly.

Summer is all about comfort, but it’s easier than ever before to stay comfy while rocking impeccable, effortless style!

Uncovering the secrets of a career in fashion

Have you ever thought of a career in fashion? Being a fashionista is more than following trends and bagging the latest designer pieces to flaunt when you head out onto the high street. Understanding fashion is about anticipating future trends and maybe even creating trends of your own for others to follow. The easiest way to do this is by forging a career within the fashion industry. 

You don’t have to be the most adept artist or be the most creative thinker in order to work within the sector. There are plenty of roles alongside the designers that could see you mingling with other fashion professionals beside the catwalk. Take a look at how you could break into the fashion industry.

Management

Nothing could seem further from the iconic and creative industry that is fashion than the idea of management. However, every sector needs managers whether they specialise in finance, marketing, advertising or HR. Who do you think books the models, ensures the Spring Collection is delivered on budget and makes a brand instantly recognisable across the globe? If you have a head for figures or enjoy problem-solving, you might want to consider enrolling in an online supply chain management course that will allow you to become the ultimate resource planner for fashion shows.

Get Creative

If you have an artistic flair, but you have never chosen to follow this aspect of your skill set as a career, now might be the time to begin looking at relevant job opportunities. If you are willing to start at the bottom and work your way up, and you can demonstrate your fashionista credentials, fashion houses across the globe will take on apprentices to mould into their perfect industry professionals. While you might be honing your coffee making skills for a while, there will come a moment when you get a break in the industry. Designers such as Christian Louboutin had no formal training and started sketching shoes as a teenager before becoming the world’s leading ladies footwear creator.

Logistics

Instead of putting pen to paper and designing the latest collections, you might prefer to work behind the scenes. You could create the backdrops for catwalk shows, construct the perfect stage or work out the most iconic sound settings to create the ideal mood to accompany a collection. You could fall back on your people skills to ensure all of the models are organised, ready to go on time and that outfit changes are seamless. The world of fashion is renowned for being manic, chaotic and full of prima donnas. If you can manage this well enough, you will become a logistics maestro in demand by all fashion houses. A career in fashion is not for the faint-hearted and can be hugely stressful. But it can also give you the ultimate job satisfaction.

 

Fashion is exciting and creative. Many would say it’s a passion and in your blood. If you’re keen to pursue your passion for fashion, follow this advice and do everything in your power to break into the industry.

Spring Jackets for the Man in your Life

It is starting to feel like spring. The sun is out today and it feels a bit warmer. But I hear we are going to have a white Easter in England. Can you imagine that? I hope a miracle happens and the snow never appears. The snow is so exhausting now. I just want some normal spring weather. Is that too much to ask?

When spring finally appears for real, I will be confident enough to keep all our winter gear back into storage. I heard some proactive people bundled their winter gear into storage only to dig them out again when the Beast from the East appeared. I am happy I didn’t have to do that.

A new weather means a different type of clothing. Spring fashion is all about lighter and brighter pieces. So I am looking forward to the prints and florals hitting the stores soon. With that in mind, I have been doing some online window shopping and popping items into various wish lists. I have my eye on a few pieces for the myself, the kids and the hubby. And I am hoping to get them soon.

Spring jackets is high on the list for us all, especially the hubby. He has not shopped for spring items in ages, so there are loads of gaps in his wardrobe to fill.

Here are a few Ellesse spring jackets I have been eyeing lately.

 

Ellesse Berto 1/2 Zip Jacket Charcoal £55.00

Many may shy away from this piece because of how bright it looks, but I think it is a beauty. Would your man like this?

This Ellesse Sortoni Jacket Anthracite jacket would be popular this spring because of the simplicity of it. It looks good and does the work beautifully, which is what most men who cannot be bothered with fashion need. I like the fact that it has a full zip front with fastened hand pockets.
