I cannot think of a more versatile team of clothing then the humble white T-shirt. Seriously what piece of clothing are you able to wear any day of the year, in any season. That said, it’s in the summer that white t-shirt truly becomes a wardrobe necessity, as it can anchor statement pieces such as wildly-printed shorts or colored jeans, take the formality out of work wear, add a casual element to silky, beaded, or even sequin skirts, just convey a sense of laid back summer style with a pair of blue denim cut-off shorts or jeans or nick your boyfriends oversized t-shirt chuck on some statement jewellery and voila you have a tunic dress.
Whether it’s a crisp cotton crewneck or the paper-thin slouchy styles made popular in recent season the white t-shirts are a must for your wardrobe.
Who does not love a pool party? And I am sure that over the course of the summer you will have several to attend. And because a pool party requires you to dress down. You can virtually go in just your bikini if you want to but if you do need to cover, here is some simple layers to add to your swimwear.
Slip on a Skirt
The quickest and easiest thing to slip on and off is a skirt, like this embroider skirt from Monsoon and pair it with a one pieces like the Evangelina red plunge swimsuit from Pretty Little Thing, with white sandals from Primark.
Another great embroider maxi skirt from Monsoon and or these printed shorts from Primark with flat slip-ons from Dune. Ethnic print Bikini Top from Primark, Embroider Bikini Top from Accessorize.
Dazzle in a Dress
For a sexy vibe opt for a playsuit like this tropical print one from Miss Selfridge and the pink and blue leafy print bikini from Accessorize with these flat gold, front tassel fringed detailed flat sandals from Dune
The dreary grey and damp days are fast becoming a thing of the past never to be thought of again, well at least not during the 3 months of glorious sunny summer days. With those sunny days comes summer parties, barbeques and lounging evenings of wine and laughter. So to be sure that you are ready for all your social engagements here are a few killer outfits for any occasion to get you through the summer social season.
For a mid-morning brunch date with the girls, you just want to get up and go, so slip into a Maxi dress, Green floral print tie waist wrap front maxi dress, wavy beach hair, slip on mules and your handbag. No hassle no fuss, because you do not want anything to come between you and your mid-morning Prosecco.

So are you ready to welcome the fine jewellery trends setting up for year 2016? We don’t always have time to discuss the economy or world politics all the time.

Most of us are also curious about the recent fashion trends and start revamping our closet. In order to inform you about the fine jewelry trends, here are the best jewellery trends for 2016:

2. Statement Necklaces with Finest Crystal Work
This would definitely be one of the popular custom jewelry trends in 2016. The finest crystals working on statement necklaces make you look elegant and charismatic.
Today, we live in a global world and no more appreciate things merely on the basis of their religious association. You are now free to choose any rustic jewelry pieces or any customized jewelry without any hesitation of being judged by others. ‘Crosses’ is one of the finest and religiously customized jewelry items which is expected to be echoing in the jewelry market in 2016.
I am not kidding. Chains would definitely be back in fashion and it would also be coming in different forms such as palm bracelets, chokers, belts and double chain earrings in different colors, sizes and shapes.
This trend will remain evergreen or would be trending at least for a long time. Their geometric forms, conventional designing and a chain fragment to make a hoop make them the fine jewelry items globally.

Most people have a desire to wear clothes that are latest and fashionable. But it seems that keeping up with latest fashion without having lots of money in your pocket is really difficult these days. This is because designer label items of clothing and clothes inspired by celebrity clothing are certainly very expensive and out of reach of the common man. However, there are many ways to look fashionable and trendy without breaking the bank or burning a hole in your wallet.
Focus upon classic, timeless items of clothing
If you try to catch up with the latest fashion and buy clothes accordingly, you will find that half of the garments in your wardrobe are such that you have no interest in wearing them. Fashion trends keep on changing and new and stylish clothes start to look outdated pretty quickly. But there are clothing items that remain timeless and classic such as black trouser, little black dress, white skirt, and so on. You can always look fashionable with the help of these classic items of clothing without spending a lot of money.
Buy more with less
There is nothing to worry if you do not have enough money to buy a designer dress for a party next week. Just take out your old party dress and get it ready for the event. Now buy new accessories to wear and carry during the function. Believe me, most people become engrossed with your handbag and the bracelet that you have worn instead of gazing at your dress. These bold and bright accessories give an altogether new look to your old dress and you become a star of the evening.
Keep an eye on sales
It goes without saying that like early bird that catches the worm, you can lay your hands on beautiful and fashionable dresses if you are aware of the end of season and clearance sales being organized by stores in your area. Also subscribe to receive news about discount sales on online stores to make the most of these opportunities.
Be Street Smart
You can look fashionable and trendy in very little money by buying items of clothing from vendors on fashion streets of your city. Believe me, you can beat all your friends wearing designer labels if you buy stylish clothes from street fashion and know how to accessorize to look very glamorous.
Last but not the least, pay attention to your beauty and hair care to dazzle others in cheap clothes and accessories.
