The Trans Seasonal Star

Not quite ready for the winter coat and thick knitwear? Then we have an assortment of what we like to call “coatigans” that’s right it’s somewhere between a coat and a cardigan, a little more structured than your average “cardi” yet less stifling than your winter coat.. The perfect autumn outwear.

Our three favourite options come from Dutch brand, Yaya…

The Mix and Match effect, (Yay..another trend this season!! ) can be created by contrasting this stripe pencil with another print/pattern…

Alternatively, an equally powerful way to pull off the pencil skirt is to make a statement in this faux leather option from Anonyme… Va Va Voom!

The Nipped in treatment

“Rejoice” all those with an hour glass figure, this autumn it is the season of the waist…so if adorning a razor sharp pencil skirt wasn’t a strong enough move, we have an amazing selection of leather belts by Yaya which can give you the “nipped in treatment” take inspiration from this seasons Yves Saint Laurant catwalk show…yses-saint-laurent-2

Summer Style SOS

This piece was going to be called “Sunshine state of mind” but with June being the wettest on record for years it didn’t seem quite appropriate. Despite the somewhat fluctuating weather, our summer wardrobe can be one way to inject a bit of the summer spirit into our day, and with optimism for a brighter July/August, and our holidays on the horizon (we hope in hotter climates) our summer wardrobe is not to be neglected!

At blue water we have compiled a Style SOS, with key emergency pieces for this summer..

Sandal SOS-

We may still be dipping in and out of our boots and wellies but be assured sandals are a key must have this season, hopefully with time yet to strut our stuff in summer footwear we have outlined key looks-

Elevated Espadrilles

No longer the basic straw soled shoe, this season it has been reinvented and can be seen anywhere from the catwalk to the high street, they are everywhere you look..Upgrade in a wedge, to add needed height for your summer maxi, these beauty’s from Cara are just the ticket, giving you wobble free walk ability..

The art of ease-

If espadrilles aren’t your bag then do not worry another huge trend this summer is the run around flat- Yay! practical and on trend! Could we ask for better? Wear with anything from denim cut offs, floral dresses and wide culottes.. With that in mind bag yourself a few pairs..

So you may be thinking flat sounds boring… But you’d be wrong to get it right this seasons flats are embellished, detail detail detail being key.

Spring Fever…

…Colour Your Wardrobe

With the smell of Spring in the air and Summer in the near distance (we hope) what better reason do we need to spruce up our wardrobe by injecting some colour? Banish those dark dreary knits which we’ve swaddled ourselves in for months on end and get excited for a new season of colour.

Replace the bland for the bright, pick up those punchy pinks, neon limes and pow wow prints and commit to a style revolution.

Scared of colour? Well it doesn’t need to be scary, try colour popping, cleverly integrated accent colours, be it through accessories and shoes. For those wanting to be that bit more daring, inject a blast of neon lime, by pairing it with navy or chocolate brown to will tone it down slightly adding depth..

Those who want to embrace all that is colour this season check out the latest Sahara , here are just a snap shot of our favourites at Bluewater…

The appreciation for eastern textiles has influenced much of our western designers catwalk collections this winter, and with the plethora of luxurious fabrics, textures and oritenal prints is it any wonder why we have paid attention to eastern influences….
