Got you Covered

We all know that our phones aren’t just smart little gadgets they’ve become an extension of ourselves and a showcase of our personality. It’s no wonder statement iPhone cases have fast become must-haves for people who want to accessorise everything in their wardrobe, including their gadgets, and at fashion week for the past few years the IT accessory isn’t always the hottest bag or shoe but the novelty phone case. Jeremy Scott kicked it up a notch with this wish-list wanting cases from Moschino and boom, a trend is born for kooky phone covers. As any smart streetstyler knows it’s not all about aesthetics, investing in a cool, chic cover also offers your phone protection. Fashionable and function is always a winning combo.

After recently upgrading to an iPhone 6, I struggled finding a cover so I trawled the shops to bring you an edit of the best cases you need to get right now.

Bad-ass Pink

Get on board the rose parade – before you think you need to go uber-girly, this sweet shade doesn’t have to look so sickly. Cut the sugar factor by opting for clean, streamlined pieces – think more refined less frou-frou and team pretty pink with pieces that don’t always play nice like leather and black. No pretty princess vibes for you..

Shrug it off

If you’re over showing your cleavage and the thoughts of baring your midriff makes you cringe, try an off-the-shoulder style for size. Here’s my top tips for rocking some serious shoulder action.

A orangey-red lip, gold hardware and textured top makes this look a winner.

Wear an off-the-shoulder dress with casual accessories and flats for a more relaxed vibe.

Avoid boho connotations by working your OTS top, with a sleek black leather pencil skirt and statement necklace.

Combine a bardot top in the same colour as a skirt for a sleek but fun look and finish off with kick-ass sunglasess.

The LBD gets a flirty twist with pleats, frills and an off-the-shoulder detail.

Genius styling trick – button your shirt into an off-the-shoulder style for those hot summer days.

A white bardot top looks office-ready when pared with tailored black trousers and ballet pumps.

From bows to stripes go big and bold or go home.

A red siren number looks even sexier with a little extra shoulder showing.

You don’t always have to go for a statement shoulder-exposing dress, a sleek monochromatic outfit is so stunning it can speak for itself too.

Simple make-up and loose pared back hair is the perfect partner to a bright shoulder-exposing dress.

For an unexpected boost and cute styling trick, layer an OTS top under a printed pinafore dress.

Racy lacy – Yes or no?

Love them or loathe them, designers are trying to make gladiator sandals happen (again). From plain straight-up leather to wrap around, from flats to high heels there’s a multitude of styles to choose from.

Chloe, Miu Miu and Valentino walked them down the runways at Paris Fashion Week and now they’re rolling into a high-street near you with Mango, Topshop and Next embracing the greek goddess vibes.

Perfectly paired with a boho dress goes without saying but streetstylers have been mixing it up with these sandals and wearing them layered over denim shorts, side spilt maxis and printed shifts.

Will you go for some knee-grazing gladiators this summer?

Crop it like it’s hot

Forget your mom jeans and your skinnies because the new denim silhouette of the season is the cropped wide-leg. A shorter variety of the flare it’s become the favourite denim shape for the fash-pack, including Alexa, so it’s obviously going to be massive. And before you sweat about what to footwear to wear with, see below for some inspo, but they look strangely good with a pair of ankle boots. Or if you want to add a more ladylike feel go for miles or courts. 7778-Le-21eme-Adam-Katz-Sinding-Julia-Sarr-Jamois-Milan-Fashion-Week-Spring-Summer-2015_AKS2747

Ways to wear a skinny scarf

Whether worn loose, wrapped around your neck or secured into a single knot, allow the lengths of your skinny scarf to flow freely over a sheer silk blouse, blazer, leather jacket or a retro mini dress. Who knew a simple accessory could add so much to an outfit? And before you think this just works for day – take a style cue, or two, from Alexa and wear it for evening in place of a statement necklace.

Shop the Shoot

From loud and proud colour combos, to super saturated hues and geometric pieces, my latest shoot for Image Magazine (which has just come of shelves) was all about brightening up spring. My inspiration for the shoot came straight of the runways most notably Peter Pilotto and Roksanda bringing the colour-block-boom back.
