Make A Fashion Statement This Season!

2013 saw jewellery getting bigger and bolder, with designers and brands searching for the perfect accessory. Whilst stacked bracelets and layered necklaces had sartorial staying power, due to their ability to shake up the simplest of outfits, assembling a stylish stack was no easy feat when you consider the various metals, textures and shapes you had to contend with!

So it comes as a breath of fresh air, that the jewellery trend this season is heading more in the direction of a one off piece. And in line with this latest hassle-free trend, statement- worthy cuffs have made a comeback. Traditionally worn to complement evening attire, this season there is also a wide range of understated designs on offer, for everyday wear. So no matter whether you are going for effortlessly chic or free spirited bohemian, the cuff is admirably adaptable!

Suit Up In Style…

You may have noticed a resurgence in sharp tailoring and snappy dressing of late, which is largely attributed to some of the most prolific celebrities themselves.

Kardashian fans will no doubt be familiar with Scott Disick’s affinity for style, regularly displayed by his plethora of tailor made suits, tucked handkerchiefs and suede loafers. And it doesn’t stop there…Lord Disick has made no secret of his love for accessories, be it; fancy socks, a cravat, designer man-bag, cufflinks or the occasional cane! And his style has certainly not gone unnoticed, having well cemented his place on any ‘best dressed’ list for men!

And he isn’t the only one. TOWIE’s very own Mario Falcone is well renowned for his talents in bespoke tailoring on the iconic Saville Row. In fact, his passion for his profession is as strong as ever, since he is now set to launch his very own range of suits alongside a book dedicated to tailoring. Ex-TOWIE star Mark Wright recently created a capsule collection for Littlewoods which includes dapper suits that he has modelled himself.

Let’s not forget Marks & Spencer, who have famously maximised awareness around their range of suits over the years, with the help of some familiar (and rather attractive) male faces….Antonio Banderas, Take That, England Football team, Ryan Reynolds, David Gandy…need we go on?

As the ongoing trend for tailored suits continues to soar, cufflinks have simultaneously become the most stylish accessory of men’s fashion today. And as you would expect, designers have responded with a vast and varied selection of choice readily available. So how do you choose which one suits?

In the same way that fashion depicts an individual’s style, cufflink choice shows the taste and aesthetical sense of a man. Whilst they undoubtedly provide the finishing touch to help pull it all together, try to select a classic pair which will amplify the look, but never go out of date.

The Best of British Bridal

Finally we can bring you the highlights from the 2013 British Bridal exhibition – the UK’s biggest and best bridal event.

Emerging key trends for 2014 include luxury, glamour and some very creative interpretations of vintage. An interesting play on fabrics was also evident this year, with an array of patterns and prints, laser-cut fabrics, embroidered lace motifs and opulent bead work – reinventing the classics with a contemporary twist.

Gold showed up in many of the bridal collections (including Donna Salado’s), along with a strong neutral colour palate of; blush, ash grey, pastel greens, mint and touches of Wedgwood blue – seen across footwear, bridal wear and bridesmaid dresses.

Pearls played a very prominent role, both on headdresses and veils, not to mention the elegant detailing on tailored jackets and wide satin collars for a very elegant finish.

But the most desirable trend on the catwalks was undoubtedly the back detailing, which unveiled the potential for daring keyholes down to the waist, along with deep and perfectly-draped cowls. These plunging necklines, seen in collections such as Tony Mentel’s, have led the way for statement accessories to really shine…

According to a survey conducted by post-it note company 3M, young brides of today are no longer opting for the traditional white dress, preferring instead to marry in colour.

Whether this is merely a sign of the times, or simply a new fashion trend set by a number of A-listers including Jessica Biel and Reese Witherspoon…who knows??
