Metallic Flats

I’m doing a bit of wishful shoe shopping and can’t stop looking at the amazing metallic shoes! So many beautiful shoes, not enough money sadly! I think my favourite are the silver brogues…wow! London Rebel have some fantastic choices, but the ASOS silver loafers are really cute as well and great for adding a bit of glam to the office. Counting down the days to pay day already…. 🙂

Metallic Sports Luxe

Sports luxe has been a big trend and you can take it up a notch with metallic pieces. Whether you are wearing metallic trainers, a silver top or gold bag, metallic can really help add a luxurious feel to a laid back sports look. I love the luxurious metallic tweed bomber jacket, perfect for the trend. The jacquard top has the perfect metallic fabric for the luxe element, while the contrast sleeve adds a casual feel.

Get the Look: Monochrome and Neon

Who would have thought a TOWIE girl would end up being such a style icon? (For those of you who don’t live in the UK and haven’t heard of TOWIE, it stands for The Only Way is Essex, which is a reality TV show.) Sam Faiers has done it again with another fantastic neon set. I was very impressed she made her way onto People in the Style Watch section. Not surprising though with her stand out lemon crop top and matching skirt. Very impressed!

I am just loving what she wore to the Rays of Sunshine charity gig. This super stylish monochrome two piece really stood out with the pop of coral and neon heels. I don’t actually know where she got this amazing two piece from, but have come up with my own version of the look below:

Monochrome and Neon Look

1. Coral Top / 2. Conversational Palm Print Jumpsuit / 3. Coral clutch bag / 4. Orange high pointed court shoes

Not exactly a two piece, but this monochrome jumpsuit with a simple coral top will have the same effect. It’s a great way to pick up on the trend with versatile pieces that you can wear in various other ways. This is such a cute look for a night out, something a little different, but guaranteed to make you stand out from the crowds.

Monochrome is a really easy way to create a classic and very stylish look. The monochrome trend is still going strong and a cute print adds a fun, playful edge to the outfit. I love how she’s made the outfit stand out with the pops of colour. It shows that by simply adding a few statement neon accessories you can really transform an outfit. It’s also an easy way to get in on the neon trend if you don’t want to go all out in a neon dress.

Now go on, get stuck in on the trend and try a bit of black, white and neon! xxx
