#TrendingNow : Studs

I’ve always admired this trend – it makes any piece look edgy instantly! It’s the easiest way to take an extremely formal outfit from bordering on boring, to chic.

The mantra here is “Just add some studs” ; whether it’s a bag, shoes or a jacket – the studs do the trick!

Here’s a quick round up of my absolutely favorite studded merchandise for this season!

1) Valentino – Rockstud metallic textured-leather point-toe flats

This modern classic went from being an edgy piece to an absolute must-have

2) Jimmy Choo – Riley studded leather shoulder bag

When one of my favorite brands encompasses my favorite trend – it most definitely is a match made in heaven

3) MAJE – Jacob fringed studded suede mini skirt

This suede skirt is finished with silver studs and fringing to accentuate and soften the thigh-grazing hem. Pair with a plain white button down to look effortlessly chic.

4) MCM- TANTRIS ZIPPED CROSSBODY WALLET

For those who cant commit to the trend completely, but want to give it a shot – this wallet is perfect. The pretty pastels coupled with the studs is the ideal combination.

Rain Check: Stylish Umbrellas that will keep you dry this season!

Talk about erratic weather – the monsoon dampen’s everybody’s spirit ( Including a fashion enthusiast in me). I hate having to swap my choo’s for rain-proof footwear, and my Bottega for a bag that’s not as chic but weather resistant.

However, all’s not lost – I realized i could have some fun with a chic umbrella! I started my hunt and boy I wasn’t disappointed! Here’s my pick of the 5 chicest umbrellas

Burberry Prorsum

My Pick of the Week: Chloe’s Drew bag

Expertly crafted in Italy from patchwork suede and leather in shades of teal, royal-blue, and black, Chloé’s ‘Drew’ bag is one of our favorite ways to work the season’s ’70s trend.

It’s perfectly sized to house your cell, makeup compact and cards, with a pouch pocket to keep keys neatly tucked away. The polished gold chain strap is long enough to style cross-body and I most definitely can’t wait to get my hands on this!! 

All White Everything

Summer has begun, and the temperatures are soaring – I cannot imagine wearing any other color but white. Here’s my edit of white ensembles for every style sensibility –

Androgynous 

I cant help but love this look – it’s so polished, so effortlessly cool and so so amazing! Pair a white blazer with a pair of well fitted white pants – add some edge to your outfit with these edgy barely there heels from Givenchy.

Minimalist

It’s hard to ignore the Minimalist aspect of Fashion, with powerhouses like Celine propagating this trend with great gusto! Here’s my take on easy minimalism – pair white tailored shorts with a boxy top and finish the look with a no-nonsense clutch.

Flirty Feminine 

Think beach dresses, summer dresses in cotton, loose, flirty, midi dresses with  Lace accents and my fashion senses are tingling. Absolutely LOVE this easy – breezy style, and absolutely LOVE the chloe dress on Aimee Song! How do you achieve her look? Pair a beautiful white dress, with comfortable wedges and a crossbody! (Who would have thought it would be this easy?)Blog3
