The stripe print is a great print to wear to stand out. From horizontal, vertical, on ribbed jumpers, silk camis for night, for day, and to lounge around in the stripe is a statement piece every fashion girl owns. The great thing about the stripe is that you can have it in any form of clothing or accessory and pair with a solid colour for a classic look.

Tie Dye… one of the prints that bohemian lovers obsess over. What’s great about this print is the mixture of dark tie dye and bright tie dye to complete people’s summer looks. Whether you are looking for the ideal beach cover up or some lounge trousers to spend the day in, tie dye is a great print for those that find the floral print too girly.

Abstract can be a great print to wear when you don’t want to end up looking the same as everyone else; with floral and stripe being a popular print go for something a bit more eccentric and try a bold abstract print. Stick to minimal accessories with this print…as they say ‘Less Is More’.

This trend has been going around for what seems like forever. Starting from the era of the free spirited gypsies and hippies, fashion designers love to include floral patterns, white lace and suede detailing in their collections; especially the likes of Gucci, Alberta Feretti and Roberto Cavalli who are not shy to showcase the bohemian trend on their runways.
To wear the bohemian trend comes with a sort of relaxed, summer feeling that evokes the ideas of being a free wonderer. The soft palettes and super feminine detailing of bohemian pieces are flattering and show us the true essence of summer…think maxi dresses, sandals and fringing. A bohemian girl is someone who would never be seen wearing one statement piece but instead multiple; clashing patterns, large earrings and oversized sunglasses complete her look.
With summer fast approaching and our beloved festivals right around the corner such as Glastonbury the bohemian trend becomes even more loved as this is the ideal choice for festival goers; just think of Florence Welch and Vanessa Hudgens who wear the trend on a daily basis.

Ruth and May Bell… the beautiful pale faced models you just have to know about right now. Scouted at the age of 16 by Elite Model Management the identical twins have been in numerous magazines and runway shows; both together as a pair and also individually.
Their most recent success was landing the dream Burberry SS16 campaign shot by Mario Testino; baring their skin and wearing nothing but the classic Burberry scarves on top… don’t they just look amazing?
We love the fact that these girls; who look so similar can in fact be so different. With May having longer hair and a more feminine look she enjoys the girly things in life and has appeared in Vogue Italia and Topshop campaigns in which her soft look gives her the upper hand. On the other hand Ruth who’s short hair was given to her for the Alexander McQueen AW 2015 campaign shoot appears more grungy and therefore has appeared in the likes of Saint Lauren campaigns and McQueen shoots.
