Floral Flurry

Here’s one for all you daring fashion girls out there! A two piece floral suit is definitely a statement piece and isn’t for the faint hearted.

The key to pulling off the floral suit is balance, do not over do the look! For example if you were sporting a floral suit with yellow undertones don’t opt for a statement pair of fluro yellow shoes or a heavily embellished top. Instead subtly compliment the yellow under tones with something else yellow like a ring or necklace, such as the necklaces below. Necklaces such as these subtly accentuate the colour without making the outfit over-the-top.

Wearing a floral suit is all about confidence, without it you have no hope of pulling it off! Be bold ladies and embrace your inner fashion monster because without it we’d all be wearing potato sacks! Pair the suit with a pair of minimalist black heels and a shoulder bag of your choice, then accessorise to your hearts desire! After all, fashion should reflect who you are.

Lone Rangers

Today I went to see the new Johnny Depp movie ‘The Lone Ranger‘ it was brilliant to say the least! But yet again I found myself sitting in another movie ogling the costumes. Although the old Wild West style costumes were great I was perplexed with Johnny Depp’s costume which represented an outcast Indian tribal member.

(Just a quick Johnny photo for all you fans out there hehe)

For those of you who are thinking I must be talking about the bird.. Think again! I’m talking about the tribal vibe of the entire costume. This got me thinking about all things tribal and its appearance throughout both current day and early day fashion. Tribal is so much more than just animal prints, it’s about embellishment (omgomgomg), vivid colours, statement stones, detailing, aztec prints, feathers, tassels and SO much more!

Tribal has to be one of my all time favourite trends because there are major amounts of vivacious colour, detailing, embroidery and most importantly embellishment! I would have to say that tribal jewellery is my favourite type of tribal trend, seriously how can you not drool over these?

Tribal jewellery is amazing as it can be paired with such a wide range of outfits to make a statement without being too ‘in-your-face’ as a full tribal outfit can occasionally be. Still unsure how to add a little tribal into your everyday outfit? Simply pair it with your ‘never fail’ little black dress if you’re going out or with a coloured blazer and shirt for work (or even a black blazer cause so often the tribal colours speak for themselves!)

I will be posting some sneaky tribal influences from my week onto the instagram page so be sure to check it out (INSTAGRAM: chloesworldoffashion) Let me know your thoughts on tribal.

I would LOVE to receive some feedback from all of you, especially if anybody is attempting something tribal this week!

Rose Gold

I am still obsessing over rose gold! Rose gold has the versatility to match and compliment almost any outfit making it just that extra bit special. Like me, you probably think of jewellery as soon as anybody says rose gold but think again! I have searched the web and shops of the city to bring you an expanded repertoire of rose gold good enough to fuel any rose gold addicts out there!

Sneakers

Probably one of the last items that come to mind, rose gold sneakers are the definition of chic swag (yes, I just invented that)! Jeffery Campbell never ceases to amaze with his gorgeous platformed metallic rose gold sneakers (featured on the left).

Jacket

I know this is completely over-the-top and slightly attention seeking but I love it! However wearing this would be a challenge within itself! If this is a little daunting opt for a shorter less dramatic version like the jacket featured below.

Shorts

Out of my top three rose gold ‘expansion’ items these would have to be my favourite. I love how the shorts have a mind of their own yet are also a subtle use of rose gold in an outfit. A pair of rose gold shorts have the potential to even be less of a statement than a chunky, over-sized rose gold necklace.

Image

And of course I couldn’t forget to include some of my all time favourite rose gold accessories. What kind of a rose gold groupie would forget that!?

The Harness

Today I came across a piece which I dibbed ‘The Harness.’ If you’re picturing the dreaded rock climbing harness (if you have ever gone rock climbing you feel my pain) or those ‘baby bjorn’ harnesses which tie your children to your front so you can continue everyday life… think again!

It could be my inner embellished obsessed monster shouting out but I think The Harness is the definition of fearless. The shag like feature surrounding the bodice softens the striking bronze platelet, giving the harness a slightly tribal feel. For those of you thinking ‘yeah alright it’s cool, but I wouldn’t have a clue how to wear it’ look no further!

All the harness (a disguised knight in shining armour) needs is your favourite black tee, a pair of jeans, a chunky pair of clogs, an over-sized rose gold watch, a pair of wooden sunglasses and you’re ready to fight!

If this is slightly over the top for you, check out some of these harnesses:
