Bando it up

Having a bad hair summer? No problem, as festival season is now upon us the ultimate hair craze is back again: The headband.
 
Although, this year the trend has taken a more ethnic twist with Nicole Richie rocking a grecian inspired headband (no doubt a piece from her House of Harlow line).
 
 
But if you want to get on board with a trend before everyone else my recommendation is the bando.
 
The bando is a rope usually with embellishment that one can tie around their head, wrist, neck and wherever you want really!
 
Serena Van Der Woodsen, played by Blake Lively, rocked one in series 2 of Gossip Girl but the high street have only just caught on to the trend.

My favourite bando at the moment is this feathered one from Accessorize, for £8 it is perfect for rocking at a festival or for the beach.

Playsuits – the new shopping standard?

 Previously reserved for evening attire only, the playsuit has now become an acceptable daytime look.

Stars such as Blake Lively and Fergie get 10 out of 10 for their breezy printed playsuits.

 However, Katy Perry, usually queen of the playsuit, has got this look all wrong. The tight fabric causes the outfit to look too revealing for daytime and K-Pez should have worn heels, a la Fergie and Blake, to elongate her legs.

Not brave enough to flash your pins? Then why not copy Whitney and try out a harem jumpsuit – still ticking the trend boxes for summer without getting chilly.

You know you love me…XOXO

OMG! on 29th April Gossip Girl fans will be racing down the high street as fast as their Jimmy Choo imitation heels can carry them.

And why you ask? Well, Miss Selfridge has teamed up with the hit US show to produce a collection of 8 exclusive dresses based on the characters from the show; Blair, Jenny, Serena and Vanessa.

Each character has two dresses that personify their New York style so which ever GG girl you are then you will surely find the right look for you.

Blair’s dresses scream Upper East side princess with a cute pink prom dress which is tipped as the best seller.
The black, body con Serena dress perfectly encapsulates the party girl’s style.
Jenny’s dresses are punk rock royalty with lace and chains (would she wear anything else?)

However, for me, I shall be hunting through the rails for Vanessa’s dresses. Her boho fabulous style is my favourite and her dresses, one a trippy leopard print maxi and the other a Grecian black dress with embellished neckline, are summer essentials that I will be working to the max-i.

Collection prices start at £39

XOXO
