Take a page out of New York’s playbook and kick your style up a notch next spring.

Drop waist dress :: Three ways

Last summer, I couldn’t get enough of the skater dress. This summer, I’ll be embracing the drop waist dress. Here are three different takes on the warm weather staple from three of my favourite fashion bloggers…

Option 1: Dressy Casual

Option 2: Casual

Option 3: Dressy

Lookbook :: Mango Summer 2014 campaign

I first came across Andreea Diaconu in this model-off-duty shot from Paris Fashion Week and fell in love with her laid-back style.

Then I spotted her in the H&M Conscious Spring 2014 lookbook.

And now, the Romanian model showcases Mango’s surfer girl-inspired collection. I’m really loving the blue and white palette. Light, airy and perfectly beach-ready.

Golden Globe Award-winning actress Michelle Williams returns as the face of Louis Vuitton’s spring/summer ads. With her timeless beauty and adorable pixie cut, Williams shows off the French brand’s ‘city’ bags – the redesigned Lockit, the Capucines, and the Alma.

Photographed by Peter Lindbergh and styled by former French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld, the campaign will debut in magazines next month.

Mix it up II

Pattern mixing may seem like a daunting task, but when mastered, it opens up a world of possibilities. Instead of standing in front of your closet each morning thinking you’ve got nothing to wear, try reinventing your favourite pieces. It’s also the perfect opportunity to have some fun with the clothes you’ve got hiding in the back of your closet.

Take a style cue from these ladies and mix things up…

Good to remember:

+ Keep it simple.

+ Stick to patterns in the same colour scheme.

+ Use stripes as your jumping off point. Stripes look good with leather, polka dots, floral, lace and even plaid or gingham.

+ Jazz up your look with an embellished clutch or animal print shoes.

+ Have fun!

What do you think about these looks? I can’t wait to start mixing things up for spring and summer!

Also, I was wondering if there’s any particular trend you would like to see a post on. I’d love to hear your ideas. Please leave a comment below.
