Clothing essentials for summer

Hello all, sorry I haven’t written in so long ;( I’m back now & I want to share with you my Fashion must haves and must nots for travelling !

MUST HAVES:

bb2 1. A little white dress

This is an essential summer must have if you are wanting to achieve that effortless European style whilst remaining cool in the sun. Also a perk of having a white dress or Playsuit is that it goes with anything, any shoes or bag which maximises out your outfit choices when traveling.

 2. A pair of relaxed denim shorts 

When I say relaxed I mean loose and comfy, because on holiday its hot and there is nothing worse than having a pair of shorts that kind of fit in at home but are way to tight when your hot and well a little sun-creamy. Denim shorts are essential for summer when pulling off the relaxed chick beach bum look (its my fav)

These are defiantly my must haves and first in the bag each year! They are a total lifesaver when heels are a no no. Perfect for evenings or the day they are even sand proof – (well you can walk on the sand in them with as much difficulty as flip-flops 🙂 Plus they make your legs look gorgeous when in shorts or a dress !

 

Okay so those are my 3 essentials when it comes to packing, but there are also 3 key Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to traveling stylishly.

DO’S & DON’TS: 

1. DO — Smooth out your clothes on the bed and carefully roll them when packing, don’t fold. This should prevent any major creases and when travelling it helps creates more space for that extra pair of shoes or bag!.

2.DONT — Take loads and loads of Bikini’s, two or three pairs is more than enough if you love them, and make sure one of them is black as your guaranteed it will survive the sun cream stains that white bikinis are prone to + they make your tan look better.

3.DO — Take moisturiseer on the plane with you, and try to avoid wearing makeup, as planes are prone to drying out and dehydrating your skin which can lead to spots! which is not wanted for our summer look. So make sure to take care of your skin when in the air.

Love Wiz X.

 

 

Fashions highest designer denim …

1. Gucci

With Denim once again re gracing the store windows Fashions highest hot brands are re making the double denim look with daring textures and bold embroidery. Gucci has taken the rough denim look to a whole new fashion statement with contrasting metal studs against tropical stitching creating a stunning centre piece with its beauty hidden in the boldness. Gucci’s “calf hair-panneled embellished denim jacket” is high selling at £4,780 a piece in the major retailers of Net a Porter and mytheresa. Taking on a wild texture assault over denim and bombers.

2. Stella

Taking a step down from the extravagance of Gucci’s denim Stella has mixed simplicity through her darker shades and vibrant embroidery, a calmer more versatile piece for your denim wardrobe. But keeping with fashions strong link to embroidery and textures this season, and retailing at £1,340 Stella’s over sized relaxed bomber is a must have for summer outfits, mixing relaxed with accessorised and creating the perfect balance.

But when paired with a unforgiving price tag, Gucci suddenly doest seem so friendly even if their look is stunning. So girls we expand into other designers such as Zara our all time favourite who have some gorgeous embellished jackets with prices that will love you back.

3. ZARA

Zara’s punk denim jacket is a true rockstar among your wardrobe, taking centre stage on all outfits this Rock & Roll accessory challenges Stella’s delicate embroidery and lose fit with a rougher more masculine design. At only £69.99 its price will make you fall in love all over again !!!

4. ZARA

Another heart breaker is Zara’s artist impression embroiled jacket, with a large fabric design in detailed gold and black stitching, this unique and rare jacket, matches Gucci with a bold design. A true masterpiece this relaxed fit denim and belt will send any outfit onto another level. At £59.99 Zara jacket comes with a label that won’t bite your purse and will lift all outfits.

All my love…Dotwiz X.

 

The bralette babe …

The lace looks are running back but with a casual tone. Becoming less of a statement piece and more like a lush accessory for relaxed day wear. But there are some definite Do’s and Don’ts in pulling of a easy bralette babe look:

  1. Always go classic, so not harsh bright colours stick to greys-blacks-navy for your colour scheme.
  2. Back detailing is essential, you want to expose an elegant back so go for more intricate designs featuring backs and shoulders.
  3. Its all about the lace, a regular bra isn’t elegant enough to be paired with causal attire, remember if you are wearing something slouchy it must be paired with some elegance to be pulled off correctly.

For me i go to Zara’s siter brand Berska it’s the perfect place to look right now with all of Zara’s style and price tags, it’s a more understated brand – so the perfect place to find rare edgy styles, especially when it comes to bralettes !

All my love and happy shopping…Dotwiz X.

2017-New Year Fashion Resolutions

Wear less black

Iblack-fashion-2017t’s an easy colour to pair with and the though of your favourite black jeans is comforting, but 2017 is a time for stepping out of your comfort zone, and trying new colours. Maybe not crazy teacher jumpers with bright patches on. But defiantly khakis, mustards, creams and blues are all do able ! The tricky part of brightening up your wardrobe & why so many of us dread it, is that those hard manufactured colours make out faces seem blotchy or ghost grey, do we end up coating on the bronzer. So lets minus our black accessory to one item for each outfit…Thats not too bad.

 

No More Trainers

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

I know this one is a killer, and that 2016 brought a wave of lux-sport onto the fashion streets…But girlies we can’t live in trainers, they can be our comfort shopping shoes but not our quick easy every day shoes. 2017 is the time where we should start spoiling our looks with those gorgeous melt in the mouth pumps, those studded biker boots and defiantly investing in some new glamorous heels. Because what are girls renowned for Loving shoes…Not trainer. So release your inner shoe diva this 2017.

 

Drop the Tomboy style

tomboy-style

No more hiding behind baggy jumpers and your old joggers. 2017 is the time for a new you, so go join a gym work on that inner Victorias Secret babe & treat yourself to some new skinny jeans, or little skirt. We can all play the cool glamour girl on the street, we just need to edge up our style and drop the Tomboy faze. Although you can always pull off a baggy jumper as long as you got some edgy trousers on radiating that effortless glamour look, that 2017 got us going crazy for.

 

 

I will stop buying evening outfits

evening-tops

Oh my goodness don’t we all love to stash up on those cute sheer evening outfits, well one of my hardest new year resolutions is to cute back…way back.

And take this GiGi Hadid advice into 2017…”keep your glam simple, my go-to is foundation, bronzer and mascara, and if i put too much on it goes drag real quick”

 

 

PARTY LIKE KENDALL JENNER…|2 min read|

kendalEverybody has gossip about, and fallen head over heels in love with Kendal Jenner’s 21st birthday dress, its the ultimate silver party dress a complete knockout. Designed by LaBourjoisie, a bespoke dress covered in Swarovski crystals designed especially for Kendalls 21st, and attached to a $9,000  price tag. Even Kendal couldn’t deny her love for the dress. Taking on a similar Paris Hilton sass, with Hiltons 2002 New Year dress, but giving it the Kendal twist has turned the over priced over, crystalised dress into every girls dream…And I know where to find it, and it has a smaller price tag.

The small fashion label Pink Boutique, have designed a lookalike dress, practically identical. For a much smaller price tag of £75.00, and it comes in a choice of two sparkling colours silver or gold.  It has completely channeled Kendal’s Swarovski vibe, and given us a party dress from the magazines, into our over crammed wardrobes. The dress isn’t covered in Swarovski crystals, but it’s a stunning replica of Kendal’s glitzy gown. Perfect to either re-make Paris Hiltons New Year dress, or send Kendal spinning in a Swarovski vibe, a perfect fit for any party.

Lots of love…Dotwiz X.
