…and they just keep on coming…
Hello and welcome to another Friday night blog!! They are coming thick and fast right now as this weather gives us all the confidence that we can fully embrace summer and all the wonderful fashions and styles that entails…so my creative juices are flowing and I have so much I want to be telling you about!
Here ins the UK, there is a gradual easing of lockdown restrictions which means there is a growing confidence that we can begin to buy a few pieces that we love in the hope that others, apart from those we live with, will see! So with this in mind I have a few more pieces from Baukjen to show you that I thought you would love…
This dress would be a brilliant option for those of you who are top heavy as the tiered skirt and simple top will help to even out the shoulders / hip ratio. The warm, dark tones will work well for those of you who have dark or red hair and warm skin tone. Careful if you are petite as the tired skirt and full cut of fabric could make you look shorter. The best way round this would be to wear it with heels….
Milly Dress: £139 (£111.20 with my discount)
The colour of this dress is stunning- and is again, another option for those of you with warm colouring or soft and deep colouring (as long as you have a warm skin tone). The belt will help to define your waist and the pockets on the bust will help to bring shape if you are a little lacking in that area. Careful of the hem length if you are petite though…it could finish at a wide point on your leg and therefore make you look shorter. My advice would be to either hem it to on or just above your knee or wear with neutral wedges or stacked heels.
The moment I saw this shirt I ordered it….it is TOTALLY up my street as I have a rather an unchecked obsession with anything Broderie Analgise! I loved the slightly billowed sleeves and delicate print…perfect for a dress down day or just as good dressed up with heels and pretty jewellery. A total wardrobe winner in my book!
A great top if you have angular shoulder lines but they are broad as this cut of top will help them look more narrow since your eye is being drawn into the middle. A Baukjen classic; a simple, clean cut of understated elegance….a perfect top for those of you for whom black is your friend!
Who doesn’t love a Breton stripe- especially when its styled in a cheeky off the shoulder number! Classic enough for day time wearing but versatile enough to be easily dressed up with coloured rolled up jeans, wedges and oversized earrings for the evening. The colours are perfect for those of you with clear, contrasting colouring and who need to bring breadth to your top line to balance out wider hips.
You know I am total sucker for Baukjen’s leather collection and these beauties are such a stunning new edition. Classic enough that they won’t date quickly but a more interesting cut due to the cropped, flared style. Worn with trainers for a dressed down day look or with heels and blazer for a night out…I promise you- these will be such a reliable and solid wardrobe staple for you. I have had the Liv Leather Leggings for a couple of years now and have worn them extensively and they are just as good as the day I bought them due to the quality….so while I appreciate the price point may make you think twice- they will deliver! If your legs aren’t the longest- try them out with some neutral coloured or black heels to help elongate the legs.
The Unity Pants with the distinctive rainbow stripe design are a new style recently brought out by the design team. All profits will be donated to NHS charities – so an incredibly worthy cause in the name of staying stylish! A side stipe never fails to make legs look longer…so girls- you can’t go wrong!
