Let’s face it, we all need a little pick-me-up on a Monday (some more than others), so rid yourself of those Monday blues by updating your wardrobe with our ‘just in’ pieces from designers such as Star by Julien Macdonald and J by Jasper Conran.
Whether you are looking for a new pair of shoes to wear at the weekend, or a classic dress for work, our new arrivals collection has many stunning pieces to offer. With the weather being very unpredictable and taking a turn for the worse in the past few days, we think it’s time you consider getting your autumn pieces out, ready for the showers that have been predicted for this week. Also keep your sandals handy though because the weather is looking brighter for the end of the week. So far, so typically British…
Monochrome is a trend that has dominated the high street all season, however our new arrivals this week see colour blocking work its way into the monochrome mix. Whether it’s accessories or clothing, colour blocking is a trend that can transform your whole look with just with one simple item.
This black snakeskin colour block tote bag from Star by Julien Macdonald ticks all the boxes in terms of trends. Monochrome? Check. Colour blocking? Check. We also love the snakeskin texture – great for daytime chic. Alternatively, this large cream colour block envelope purse by Fiorelli is ideal for a more formal occasion.
When it comes to shoes, the trend’s certainly on the other foot with fabulous styles such as Red Herring black jewelled t-bar sandals, Red Herring black mid heel ankle boots and J by Jasper Conran black suede high heel pointed toe court shoes.
In terms of clothing, cobalt blue is a colour that our designers have embraced this week, along with geometric prints and, of course, monochrome.
This ivory colour block shirt by The Collection is a timeless piece that you could wear season after season. Whatever the weather it will be a perfect addition to any outfit, be it jeans, a skirt or trousers.
A item that is an absolute essential in your wardrobe (especially if you live in Britain) is the trench coat. This beige mid length mac coat by The Collection is perfect for times when the weather is unpredictable because it is lightweight but will still keep you covered if you were hit by a surprise shower. Plus it’s very Audrey Hepburn, so is a winner for that reason alone.
If you’re feeling blue, thanks to the sun doing a disappearing act of sorts, then we recommend embracing it with this royal blue geometric printed jersey dress by The Collection or royal blue ribbed jersey dress by The Collection - you might as well be bright and beautiful, even if the sky is not.
Whether its pouring down with rain or bright a bright sunny day, our new arrivals provide you with on trend pieces that will make your outfit – and your Monday – fabulous.
