Trend To Watch: Marble Prints

What comes to mind when I say the word “marble”? Luxurious, elegant and classic would be a few words that I associate with it – three very positive descriptions, might I add. So, is that why marble print has become so popular lately?

Real marble is, of course, very expensive and can usually be found in high-end kitchens and bathrooms, but faux marble and marble prints can be found on pretty much anything at the moment. From sneakers to phone cases and wallets, marble is one of the biggest trends of 2015. Here are a few of our favourites:

How To Style Leopard Print

While leopard print may be a no-go zone especially if you’re into the monochrome look, it’s actually really easy to incorporate into your own personal style if you want to embrace prints. We’re not suggesting that you have to coordinate your entire outfit with your shoes, bag, and even nails – but just one statement piece is enough to safely embrace this trend.

If you’re still curious, here are just a few simple ways to wear leopard print and still keep your own style.

Dress

The best way to make your leopard print item pop is by pairing it with other basics. This look by Julia Restoin Roitfeld is perfect since all the other items are relatively subdued, and the dress is unique since it’s quite sheer.

A classic black, tailored blazer always brings a level of sophistication to a cheeky night-time ensemble.

Coat

No one can carry off leopard print quite like Olivia Palermo, and this is a way to wear your item on a day-to-day basis. Pair with other basics such as a great fitting white or black shirt, denim cut-off’s and neutral flats for a stylish look.

Sneakers

Spice up your look by choosing a pair of statement sneakers to wear on a casual basis. Make sure the fit is amazing, and take into consideration whether you want to wear socks with them, or go sock-less! Wear with denim jeans or leather pants for a classic model off-duty vibe.

Blouse

Wear a leopard print blouse with skinny black jeans or tucked into an A-line skirt for a glamourous look for day or night. Make sure the fit suits your body shape – and roll up your sleeves if you want to show some extra skin!

How To Style Leopard Print

Sandals

Nothing beats a summer sandal, and leopard print is just magical when paired with a fresh summer glow. Accessorise your nail polish to suit with your sandals (black and white is always a winner), and keep your heels silky-soft by regularly exfoliating.

4 Most Wearable Fashion Trends for AW 2014

The seasons have changed and it’s about time to retire those denim cut-off shorts and tank tops for warmer options. But where to start? The following top four new season wardrobe staples will make certain your autumn style doesn’t get the cold shoulder.

Button down shirts

Take your pick from long, short, slick and oversized styles. Wear as a dress with cute tights and boots, button to the top and cinch in at the waist with a belt for geek chic, or channel Calvin Klein with a loose fitting style and boyish slacks.

Contrast never looked so good

Create a super cool and versatile wardrobe for the season by mixing your fashion. Team ladylike florals with monochrome stripes and block patterns, and partner edgy leather pieces with urban prints. For the wild at heart, try floral and animal prints for the ultimate attitude clash.

Quilted tops

We love the waffle tee for its casual cool. They’re easy to wear, loose fitting and suit all shapes and sizes. Our pick, crisp white. Dress it down with casual jeans, leather tracksuits and Cons, or tuck it into your fave high-waisted skirt.

Biker babe

They’re back again this season, so get your leather on with a super-chic black biker jacket. Ease into the cooler weather teaming it with shorts and skirts for spring, and when winter’s at full force, layer it with shirts, knits and scarves for an extra-warm and edgy look.
