Trend Report: The Bomber Jacket

It’s a look that has been around for months now, and as you know, one that we LOVE here at The Style Fairy. Heather and I are always drooling over bombers and as I’m watching new stock arriving daily in the high street shops it’s clear the bomber is a look that is certainly sticking around for Autumn/ Winter (Yaaaaay!)

Trend Alert: Chokers

Hello 1990’s – the Chocker is back!

1219ebaa53fbdaf932982745b4438c77

I am old enough to have worn it first time around, it my teens I lived in those black velvet chokers, but I never thought we’d see them back in fashion so soon. And wow they are a huge trend now. And I have to admit, at first I didn’t like the look, but it’s really growing on me now. As they say, “never say never in fashion” as EVERYTHING comes back into style!

What’s your thoughts… Yay or Nay? 🙂

Summer Dresses

Well, summer is officially upon us! Time to dust off those summer clothes and bare those legs 😉 Last summer I was pregnant so I haven’t really updated my summer wardrobe since the previous year and really feel I am missing casual summer dresses – You know the ones; light, loose, comfy, casual but stylish all the time. A summer dress that you can just pop on with your sandals or flats and layer up with a denim jacket for the evenings. So with this in mind, I’ve been mooching the internet this morning and rounded up my top ten summer dresses in stores now!

Hope you enjoy 🙂

Trend Report: The White Shirt

white shirt collage

The white shirt should be a year round staple in your wardrobe. It’s one of those timeless pieces that never dates and always looks so stylish, plus it’s a key piece to own when it comes to layering.  What’s great about a simple white shirt is that it can be styled for pretty much any occasion whether it’s workwear, casual wear or it can even be glammed up for a night on the town (Think crisp white shirt, leather look trousers, killer heels and a statement  necklace) Take your inspiration from the stylish gals on how to incorporate this classic piece into your wardrobe:

Trend Report: Bomber Jackets

Ladies, let me introduce our guest blogger this month Sorcha Quigley. Sorcha comes with loads of fashion experience and is currently working in the buying department of Dunnes Stores, so when it comes to trends and what’s in for this season, she’s your girl. Her latest post is on one of this season hoist looks (and one of my current obsessions)… Bomber jackets! Enjoy,

Naomi xxx

Trend Report – The Bomber Jacket

Our favourite jacket, the bomber jacket made its big comeback last year but it’s certaintly not going anywhere this Spring! Gracing the Spring Summer 2016 catwalks of designers like Valentino, Dolce & Gabanna and Louis Voitton and also featured on some of our favourite street style icons, this trend has evolved and we are loving it more than ever!!

Bomber Jacket Inspo

Moving away from the dark and bulky jacket we had this winter, the most prominent trends for the bomber jacket this spring are silks, pastels, metallics and embroideries.

Street Style Inspiration – How to wear a bomber jacket

The versatility of this jacket makes it pretty much perfect for every ocassion. To achieve a casual, day-time look the bomber jacket can be paired with your favourite denims and an oversized tee, giving a simplistc, chic look.

d561645343c48e1a1b3dffedc8f04268

For a more glamorous, night-on-the-town look add the bomber jacket to a simple dress and throw on your favourite heels and accesories. I love this jacket over satin or slip dresses. Doing this will add texture and layering to your outfit, adding some instant edge and comtemporary glam!

My new Frames

I’ve had the same frames for the last 3 and half years, so I was in major need of an update! I had found myself not wearing my frames lately as I didn’t like them, so I knew that needed to change! I bought this Gucci pair in Sheehan Opticians in Cavan.  (Who are now running a MASSIVE discount for Style Fairy readers – See below!)

IMG_4409

I think if you are a glasses wearer like me, you should treat yourself every couple of years at least, as like every accessory – It’s nice to update. We can get lazy when it comes to frames, but frames can give your look as massive lift!

Frames, in my opinion are much like any fashion accessory in ways and really impact your look. It’s also so important to choose frames that suit your face shape – The team in Sheehan Opticians were a great help to me choosing the right pair for me. Thankfully my sight has not disapproved which was brill (phew) but it was the perfect chance to update my frames.

IMG_4406Sheehan Opticians in Cavan have an amazing selection of frames, including designer frames such as Gucci (what I got), Jimmy Choo, Fendi, Ray Ban, Vogue, Ralph Lauren and lots more. They also have such a lovely selection of children’s frames, men’s frames and some gorgeous sunnies.

From today until Friday 8th April 2016 there is now a 20% DISCOUNT across ALL FRAMES – including designer ranges, women’s, men’s, children’s and all across all sunglasses. Just simply mentioned “The Style Fairy” when making your purchase or your appointment 🙂 Don’t delay as this offer ends on Friday 8th April 2016.

Be sure to follow Sheehan Opticians Facebook page too for updates, latest offers and new collections.
