Triangular

I don’t know about you, but I adore this triangular shape right now – a geometric twist on the usual hoop earring giving your ensemble a tribal vibe. Pair a triangular necklace and earrings with a simple white dress  and you’ve got your perfect eveningwear.
Cat eye Sunglasses

The shape du jour this season is definitely the sexy and feminine cat eye and now is the time more than any to bring out your inner retro chic. We absolutely love Lazy Oafs version of the trend – varying from classic and elegant to bursts of vibrant colour, choose whatever takes your fancy. Visit here to get yours now at just £25 a pair:
Fleuroescent Jewels
Me & Zena earrings
This season it’s all about big statement jewels with kitsch / fluoro elements. Were talking layered necklaces, bracelets and earrings in colour-popping hues that are just impossible to miss. Want to add a hint of this flamboyant trend into one of your outfits – don a pair of these gorgeous Saatchi paint heart studs at £35, in an assortment of colours athttp://www.meandzena.com for an instant touch of neon. We adore these.

Perspex Clutch Bags

Now I’m sure you’ve all seen the clear plastic Chanel clutch with a rather extravagant price tag, but if you haven’t you now know what exactly has sparked off this seasons ‘it’ bag. It’s transparent, plastic and the time to hide the contents of your clutch is no longer.  You can see everything. This trend doesn’t just stop there – to modernize your look further opt for clear jewellery and shoes too -  you can rock practically Perspex anything! 

Midi Rings

I just love a bit of ring bling and the top half of the finger seems to be the new spot to sport the new finger candy.  They come in all different styles, but at the moment I’m just loving the ‘Freak’ heart midi ring at: Me & Zena for only £14. Pair midi rings with the more conventional lower ring and you’re sure to rock this trend.

Floral headbands

A trend halfway between hippie chic and Lana Del Rey – like the rings of flowers you see being sported at festivals but bigger
and better.  This trend isn’t just meant for festivals.
