Richard Nicoll Cut Out Silk Jacquard Dress Richard Nicoll Cut Out Silk Jacquard Dress

This look is another look from my-wardrobe.com (they have  some gorgeous new season items) and is suited to day or evening wear. Instead of being a dress, bag and shoes, this look is dress, jacket and shoes. Well, they say a change is as good as a rest and the gorgeous jacket below needed a mention. But more about that later…

Richard Nicoll Cut Out Silk Jacquard Dress

This dress, in the bright new season colours of aqua and lime green, is made from a silk blend jacquard fabric, and features cut out details to the side, to reveal just a glimpse of waist.

The dress is sleeveless with a round neck and fastens with an exposed zip fastening at the back. It is short, falling to about mid thigh. This particular colourway of the dress is exclusive to my-wardrobe.

This dress is part of Richard Nicoll’s pre-spring collection, and it’s a cute and flirty dress. There is actually a double split in the skirt at front of the dress.

Acne Light Blue Suede Biker Acne Light Blue Suede Biker

Acne Light Blue Crop Suede Jacket

Acne are well known for their leather and suede biker jackets, and the new season version is a confection in light blue suede.

The style name is “Mape”.

Cropped, the jacket has everything you would look for in a biker jacket – lots of zips, stud fastenings and chunky silver tone hardare throughout. Waist length, the jacket is cinched with an attached buckled belt and it features epaulettes and a notch lapel. The front has an asymmetrical zip fastening.

Other features include zip fastening cuffs, pleating to both sides at the back and an internal button fastening.

This jacket is unusual due to its colour, and looks certain to top the wish lists of style mavens everywhere this spring / summer. Certainly, it’s a cool look to reflect the design ethos of the Scandinavian designers, and the butter soft suede will make you want to wear it again and again. For this look, I’ve teamed it with the Richard Nicolls dress, but it would look equally good teamed with your favourite designer jeans too, adding style to any off duty ensemble. It also looks good teamed with prints and florals.

Diane Von Furstenberg Yellow Studded Tonda Box Clutch

Each year, Diane Von Furstenberg reintroduces her iconic Tonda clutch in a new or different incarnation and this season is no exception.

In line with the yellow trend, this pretty yellow leather clutch (the colour is called citrine by the brand) is embellished all over with a lattice of silver studs. It also has a silver coloured frame and silver clasp inset with black enamel and branded DVF.

Inside, the bag is lined in grosgrain and  has a single gusseted compartment, slip pocket and DVF plaque. The bag also has a removable snake link chain shoulder strap for multiple carry options.

Like the dress, this clutch would also be ideal for evening use too. Studs will also be a continuing theme over the new season and this clutch nods to this trend too, the yellow colour combining with tough girl chic to create an appealing look.

Sergio Rossi Snakeskin Platform Pump Sergio Rossi Snakeskin Platform Pump

Sergio Rossi Snakeskin Platform Pumps in Gold

Every now and again I see a pair of shoes that make me say WOW! and these gorgeous snakeskin platform pumps from Sergio Rossi fall into that category. Ultra glamorous and totally covetable, these shoes have a slim, 14.5 cm stiletto heel and a 3.5cm exposed platform. Both the heel and the platform are covered in the same snakeskin as the upper of the shoe.

At the front of the shoe, there is a small cut out – not big enough to be a peep toe, but big enough to provide a glimpse of toe nevertheless.

You would think that these shoes would be classed as evening shoes and you would probably be right – especially with the golden snakeskin covering; however, they do look fabulous when teamed with the outfit about and they make your legs go on forever.
