Monochrome is a big trend for Spring/Summer 2015, but add bright accessories for a pop of colour this holiday season.
You know when you get back from holiday, you’re really broke, and you tell yourself ‘that’s it, I am never going shopping ever again’?! That was me a week ago. Unfortunately I found myself in Cabot Circus at a loose end for an hour (I was on a top secret filming mission which I will be able to tell you about soon). Being left unattended next to all the lovely shops resulted in the purchase of this dress (£59) from Oliver Bonas.
It looks like a simple shift dress from the front, but it’s got this lovely cut out detail in the back, which makes it a bit more special. There’s something a bit French about a pretty polka dot dress – it looks like something my style crush, Rachel Khoo, might wear!
Polka dots are very much my go-to print, as they’re flattering and easy to wear with other things like florals and block colours. They were all over the catwalks at Dolce & Gabbana Spring Summer 2015, who showed it with a Spanish inspired twist, combined with some bold florals. I decided to work mine with fruity coloured accessories because I love a taste of the tropical on a sunny day.
I picked up these colour block heels from Primark (£12) this week. Not only are they fabulously bright, but they’re wide fitting with super comfy padded cushions that sit on the ball of your foot, making them really easy to walk in. I’ve worn them so far with this fab polka dot print, but they also work well with turned up jeans and a bright tee.
After adding them to my shoe rack, I realised that this wasn’t the only fruity pair of shoes I own. I just love pink and orange footwear! You might think they’re not as versatile as black or brown shoes, but I love a contrast shoe, so these have all gotten a lot of wear.
How will you be wearing your polka dots this season? Leave me a comment and let me know!
