Ready for a brand-new set of trends to work into your wardrobe? Here’s a few of the trends for 2020 that we’re loving right now…

JEWELLERY

CHAIN NECKLACES

Subtle, stylish and endlessly wearable, a chain necklace is a foolproof way to add a touch of polish to even the most laid back look. Never too ostentatious or ‘done’, these chains can bring an air of nonchalance to any outfit, making them the ultimate accessory to have in your jewellery box.

STATEMENT HOOPS

Give your dainty hoop earrings a break and invest in a statement pair for 2020. Large hoops are being paired with everything from power suiting to LBDs and are intended to go with just about anything. These hoops are all about standing out, not blending in.

PERSONALISED JEWELLERY

Ever since Sarah Jessica Parker rocked her beloved gold ‘Carrie’ nameplate necklace on Sex and the City, her character’s signature piece of jewellery has provided ongoing bling goals. Personalised jewellery provides a double whammy: you get a great looking piece of jewellery plus a keepsake that means something special to you. This makes personalised jewellery such a great gift to give a partner or loved one, especially if it’s handmade.

GOLD, GOLD, GOLD

With its luxurious appeal and warming tones, gold jewellery had a major comeback in recent years – and this trend is here to stay. Chunky or minimalistic, the golden rule in accessorising is that you make a statement of your choice.

MATCHING SETS

While the last year was focused on mixing and matching pieces, this year is set to see a surge in matching sets that add a touch of luxury to any of your looks. Think a set of drop earrings teamed with a pendant chain in the same style. If you prefer a more subtle style, try pairing plain bangles with simple ring bands and stud earrings in the same metal for a truly put together look for everyday wear.

HAIR

Giving us totally cool hippie vibes, this year’s Summer hair trend is all about 70’s undone waves and the good news is that it’s super easy to achieve no matter what length your hair is – just follow these easy steps:

  1. Mist Shea Moisture Fruit Fusion Texture Spray over damp hair and rough-dry, section straight down the centre vertically so you have 2 sides
  2. Section these in half horizontally so that you now have 4 sections
  3. Using the GHD IV Styler slide the irons down the hair with a see-saw motion all the way to the ends. 
  4. Continue this for every section once completed allowing the hair to cool and spray with OUAI Texturizing Spray for effortless looking boho chic

MAKE-UP

We know what you’re thinking: we’ve got 70’s style hair and now we are rocking the 90’s blue eyeshadow. But this time it’s softer shades of pastel blue than the shocking electric blues it was back then. As modelled by Gigi Hadid at the Marc Jacobs show, we will be wearing this shade all Summer long. 

The Jeffree Star Blue Blood Pallete is perfect for creating this look. With so many different blue tones to choose from, you can keep it really subtle or you could go big or go home

Sweep your chosen shade across your eyelid and blend any harsh lines. Use a smaller brush to apply under the lash line and keep the rest of your makeup neutral for a perfectly seamless look.

Fashion

Monochrome keeps coming back into fashion time and time again and it’s no wonder why. This style is so versatile and it suits everyone no matter your age or size. It’s a classic look that we absolutely love. The easiest and simplest way to freshen up your wardrobe is with a bang-on-trend dress, so we’ve put together the top three that you can buy now.

  1. This Mono Belted Maxi Dress is great with a pair of Diamante Flat Sandals for the Spring/Summer months. Add a pair of tights and some uber-cool Dr Martens Boots and the look is perfect for Autumn/Winter too. 
  2. The elegant Lace Midi Dress is perfect for a wedding at any time of the year. Pair it with a bright pink Monsoon Occasion Clutch Bag with matching Anastasia Matte Lip – Plumeria to really stand out.
  3. What I love most about this 2 in 1 Shift Dress is that it is the perfect day to night look, go from office chic to after-work drinks with friends. To keep it on-trend, we recommend pairing with Public Desire White Ankle boots.
