Fashion and lifestyle blogger Laura Morel of Nineby5 rounds up the best buys on the Island for this month.
What a bumper blogger month its been! I had the fantastic opportunity of starring in my first ever photoshoot as a fashion blogger, thanks to a collaboration with Mark Stephenson Photography and The Club Hotel. The backdrop of their classic suites provided the perfect chance to show off some of my new season’s favourites and explore upcoming trends.
Top of my list had to be this stand out statement dress by Baum und Pfergarten, in stock at Manna Boutique. I fell for this dress the moment I saw it as it ticks so many style boxes; bold print, metallic hue and full and voluminous structure. It’s the perfect mixture of girliness with a edgy vibe.
While metallics had been big for the whole of last year, they’re having even more of a moment in this year’s Spring/Summer collections. Be brave and go head to toe in gold or silver, or for a more subtle approach choose one bold garment like ankle boots or a tote bag. For the transitioning weather I picked up this vibrant silver anorak from Eclectic and a pair of gunmetal flatforms from Marks and Spencer, ensuring my style still shines bright on any dull day.
If there’s one trend that everyone can get on board with this season, it’s the celebration of the t-shirt. Find them with slogans, fringing, sequins or bold imagery. Pretty much anything goes! More than just lounge wear this summer, the humble t-shirt is to be worn under suits and blazers, or teamed with pencil skirts and paperboy trousers for a relaxed but elegant look. Head down to Pebble Boutique to grab this embroidered floral offering.
For when the sun does decide to stick around grab this Three Floor dress from Voisins for a fresh summery look. It is the ultimate romantic dress with lace overlay and peekaboo shoulders. Nothing makes you look refreshed quite like bright white, with a punch of colour and black shoulder ties keeping the look modern and unique.
