FASHION - What's caught our eye?
Regular readers of the Mark Hill site will know that were fashion fanatics we live and breathe whats hot and whats not and, let us tell you, this season were super-excited! Our favourite stores havent failed to impress us with their new ranges there are funky styles, colours to die for and more, more, MORE!! Heres a roundup of our top 5 stores for this season. Happy clicking!!!
Who doesnt love ASOS?? Its got everything, right? From its own extensive brand, to every designer and highstreet name we can think of (and, trust us, we can think of a fair few!). So what do we love this season:
Smock Dress: http://www.asos.com/ASOS/ASOS-Smock-Dress-In-Stripe-And-Floral/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=3567836&cid=2623&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=36&sort=-1&clr=Multi. Were basically going to wear it all summer! For now though, were teaming it with our chunky opaque tights and biker boots.
Butterfly Hair Clips: http://www.asos.com/ASOS/ASOS-Pack-of-6-Butterfly-Flower-Clips/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=3625546&cid=6992&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=36&sort=-1&clr=Multi. You wont be surprised to know we get a tad over-excited about new hair accessories. These are super-cute and theres more on their site, including a Sunflower Bun Holder. We love!!
Whilst some feel that Topshop is for teens only, we beg to differ. Shop carefully and youll find class and style, designs stolen straight from the catwalks - you really can wear this brand at any age. Take a look at these 2 for starters:
Oversize Iris Print Shirt: http://www.topshop.com/en/tsuk/product/new-in-this-week-2169932/new-in-this-week-493/oversized-iris-print-shirt-2630651?bi=1&ps=20. Were thinking tucked into a pencil skirt for work, were thinking hanging out of dark blue jeans for the weekend, were thinking YES PLEASE!
Horizon Toe Post Sandals: http://www.topshop.com/en/tsuk/product/shoes-430/flats-459/horizon-toe-post-sandals-2616557?bi=1&ps=20. Its almost pedicure time and we love it! Show your newly primed toes off in these gorgeous summertime essentials.
Warehouse is our go-to for work looks. Its largely sensible but still cool enough to warrant our attention (and cash!). Take a look at these 2 must-have work-ie purchases.
Lime Floral Print Dress: http://www.warehouse.co.uk/lime-floral-print-dress//warehouse/fcp-product/4543092076. This dress is so easy to wear and (whisper) you dont need to iron it. Team it with a blazer for the perfect, hassle-free work dress.
Music Bag: http://www.warehouse.co.uk/music-bag//warehouse/fcp-product/3513050761. We love Warehouse bags and this little number has style and usefulness in equal measures. We prefer the red over the brown, more of a Spring/Summer vibe.
In recent years Reiss has reaped the benefit of having Kate Middleton as their fashion-icon-client. What more could a retailer ask for? And if its good enough for our Kate.
Joanna Fitted Trousers: http://www.reiss.com/womens/womens-new-arrivals/joanna/gem/. Hands off Kate, these are ours! Were loving them, especially in the Turkish Blue and Gem so Spring.
Benton Striped Jersey Dress: http://www.reiss.com/womens/womens-new-arrivals/benton/blackcream/. Totally flattering, we can think of oodles of reasons we NEED THIS DRESS!
Cheap but very cheerful!! Boohoos does-what-it-says approach (i.e. great, affordable styles) is really working and seeing sales soar.
Alice Racer Back Dress: http://www.boohoo.com/restofworld/clothing/maxi-dresses/icat/maxi-dresses/alice-racer-back-maxi-dress/invt/azz47919. We love this dress as the elasticated waste band means that finally petites can wear maxi. Just tuck over the top section of the dress a little more and voila! Hurrah!! Martha Metallic PU Pencil
Skirt: http://www.boohoo.com/restofworld/clothing/skirts/icat/new-in/martha-metallic-pu-pencil-skirt/invt/azz41825. OMG does this suit our love of the Big Night Out, or what?!? Were always looking for clothing that oozes glam, and here weve found something sexy, stylish and HOT, HOT, HOT!
