Richard Nicoll Cut Out Silk Jacquard Dress, Acne Light Blue Crop Suede Jacket and Diane Von Furstenberg Jujette Yellow Sandals

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 Jujette Yellow Sandals

Don’t you just love these new yellow Jujette sandals, hot to trot from Diane Von Furstenberg? With there slim and elegant stiletto heels and not too wide platform, the shoes feature a python  snake print yellow leather upper with a gold coloured ankle fastening buckle. The shoes have three straps – one around the ankle, one asymmetrically across the forefoot and one across the toes.

The colour is perfect for the new season, and these candy colours of yellow, blue and green look so young and fresh when teamed together. They will add a touch of sophistication to any pretty summer frock.

Jonathan Saunders Circle Print Dress Blues Jonathan Saunders Circle Print Dress in Blues

Jonathan Saunders Circle Print Dress in Reds or Blues

It can be difficult to find a dress suitable for an eye catching day wear look, but I must admit I have been completely won over by these two brand new graphic print designs from Jonathan Saunders.

Each dress is available in either “reds” – warmer shades including red, pink, yellow and brown and “blues” – cooler shades including blue, green, brown and nude.

The dresses have a bold graphic design yet you still manage to wear the dress – the dress doesn’t wear you.

It falls to about knee length on most people and is a pull on fit – the fabric is nice and stretchy for a sleek look, and the long sleeves are both warm and flattering.

Bag and Shoes?

Although I’ve described this dress as day wear, it’s more than capable of making the transition to evening wear, so your choice of bag and shoes will depend on the occasion.

Daywear

For daywear, a sleek black shoulder tote and matching shoes will team well with either colour way. I rather like the new Harper Connect Shoulder Bag from Diane Von Furstenberg. It’s made from black suede with striking brushed gold hardware and features a contrast glossy lizard print leather insert to the flap over.

Ganni Fiona Suede Chelsea Boots Ganni Fiona Suede Chelsea Boots

I would team them with the Ganni Fiona Suede Chelsea Boots which are classic black suede ankle boots. The platform sole makes them more comfortable for day long wear  and their luxurious, preppy style would look great offset against the colours in the dresses.

Evenwear

For an evening look, you’ll be wanting to add sparkle, glitz and glamour. I’ve been won over by the quirky Anya Hindmarch Flashing Lights Tiny Tim Micro Dancer Bag pictured on the right. This bag is ideal for party girls who want to really celebrate  when it’s party time. The reason? Well, the bag is  embedded with hidden coloured fairy lights – yes, really! All you have to do is switch them on to make your look most illuminating!

Terry de Haviland Gold Margaux Wedges Terry de Haviland Gold Margaux Wedges

Match the crinkle gold metallic leather of the Anya Hindmarch mini bag with the fabulous Terry De Havilland Margaux Wedges in gold. These shoes are ideal for a glamorous look and the gold hardware and swirl detail ensure that you remain one step ahead of the fashion pack. Also the wide platform sole makes them perfect for dancing the night away.
