Pleats

PLEATS

Pleats are bang on trend this season and a great style to bring out the lady in you. It is also one of those styles that works for any shape, age and height.

Make sure that your pleat style flatters your shape

1. The stitched-down pleats lies flat at the top and is an ideal tummy concealer.
2. Accordion pleats are full through the hips, giving you an hourglass effect.
3. If you have big bums, Knife pleats are perfect as it has the least volume thus creating the illusion of a flat bum.

Stitched down pleat

Highlight your waist

To ensure a slimmed down look, always show off the waistband of your skirt, so whatever you pair it with be sure to tuck it in.

For Curvy ladies a light flowy fabric will not add bulk to your hips.
Short Legs, a hemline that is higher in the middle does not cut you off at the calves
Apple shaped, hide your tummy with stitched-down pleats

When you think of pleats, it is always paired with cute ballet flats but you can go a bit edgy by pairing it with booties, sneakers or metallic heels.

Sunglasses

Sunglasses are there to protect your eyes against the sun's rays, but it is a must fashion accessory as it can take your look from gloomy to stylish and cool. But choosing the wrong pair for your face shape will do nothing for your look.

Heart-Shaped Face: A heart-shaped face has a wide forehead, narrower jaw line, high cheekbones, and a narrow chin. Go for the cat-eye shape as they will accentuate your face shape.

The oval face shape: Your face is wider at the mid-point of your cheekbone area right below your eye level, you have a softly rounded jawline. Aviators and wraparounds styles work great as the symmetrical shape works best for your soft curves of your face.

Oblong face shape: Your face is longer rather than wide, flat cheekbones with a long chin and forehead, can appear oval but with a long vertical line. Wraparound styles looks great on your face also vintage style frames with sharp angles and bold lines will sharpen your soft features.

The round face is almost as wide as it is long, with curving lines rather than hard angles and your jawline is full and round. If your face is wide/big sunglasses with straight or angular lines will lengthen your face. It is best to avoid rounded styles that will accentuate your full cheeks.

The Square-Shaped Faces: Your jawline is square and angular, your cheekbones and forehead are the same width and the width or your jawline is the same as your forehead. Try rounded frames or circular lenses which will soften your angular face. The classic Ray-ban aviator is a great choice for you.

Triangle face shape: Your jawline is wider and fuller then your forehead and cheekbones, your face structure narrows at your cheekbones and temples. Your choice of sunglasses should draw attention away from your jawline so pick glasses that adds interest to your forehead with a detail and or colour at the top of the frame.

Bohemian Summer

primarkuk 811321733356943

The bohemian look originated in the 1960's Hippie culture and is a popular today as it was then.

Drawing inspiration from all over the world adding texture and richness, it has something for every fashionista. With neutral colours as its base making is easy to add colours to key pieces. Layering is key so start with your basics and layer it with pieces like cardigans, jewellery or shawls.

But remember just because the elements of boho style is so relaxed and layered, it does not mean that you have to look like a sloppy hippie. It is always best to keep it simple and the layering to a minimum if you are unsure. Try to keep it feminine and chic by mixing oversized with fitted pieces to balance out your look

Layer on the accessories sunglasses, necklaces, belts and jewellery, a lavish amount of accessories are key to this look. Never combine more than four shades of colours, if your look is already eye catching tone it down with grey's, beige or brown colours. Be sure to add touches of your own style personality and have fun.

Bohemian summer is all about lazy and chilled out days going from music festival to the beach.

It's girly yet stylish!!!

Here are some of my favourite boho looks for summer.

Flower Power

The Boho look is all about being natural and earthy, so floral prints are always a winner, be it that you are wearing a flower crown or a flirty floral print top or the latest trends in floral print shorts or playsuits. Make sure to incorporate florals into your boho look and show your love for the earth.

Gypsy Nights

What is more bohemian then Gypsies, with their flowing sleeved tops, colourful scarfs, skimming skirts, lace, large dangling earrings and beaded jewellery. Show off your carefree side with flamboyant and vibrant colours. Let your hair flow naturally or tie a scarf loosely around it.

Crop Tops

Although not a traditional boho look. Showing just a little bit of skin making your look sexy but still keeping the signature laidback feeling. Go for a loose fitting or a super cute crochet crop top and pair it with a maxi skirt or a palazzo pants.

Tie-dye

Tie-dye adds splashes of colour to your boho look, great with short shorts or over your bikini

Crochet tops and summer knits

These lightweight knits are for layering and creates a casual and uninhibited vibe.

Accessories and footwear

Head wraps, turbans colourful scarves, vintage style sunglasses and Indian style bangles and African style neckpieces as well as gypsy earrings are ideal pieces to finish of any bohemian look. Accessories can also be a great way to add splashes of colour to your look and to tie all the pieces together. It can be as simple as a flower crown paired with a fringed crochet top with a pair of shorts or a flowy maxi skirt.

Footwear

This is defiantly not a look for stiletto style heels so keep it flat with ballet pumps, or Ethnic inspired sandals like Greek, Roman or African styles. Cowboy boots in matching shades to your look, are perfect.

Boho is not about throwing everything in your closet together that is fringed or tie-dyed, but is about mixing pieces together, so that it reflects your personality. Remember is all about a chilled "flower power" vibe and being you.
