S Robins Styling
On this dreary day I had to do a holiday shop.
I have found some key pieces that will be able to come out year after year when packing your suit case. If you are coming to my event on the 3rd May I will be going through how to create a capsule wardrobe for your summer pieces. How to gain the most out of your wardrobe and how to maximise what is already in it.
Think about what you are buying, does the price put you off even if you love it? Spend more, buy less. This will give you the foundation of your wardrobe, the pieces you bring out year after year, remember cost per wear.

Dresses and Jumpsuits
I find I buy a lot dresses for clients in the summer. I think they are real key pieces but you don't need too many. You can create different looks with dresses and create different outfits. I put them with cropped knits and trainers, little T's underneath. Wear with heels or flats. wrap dresses can be worn open as long floaty jackets. They are really wearable and real investment pieces.
Linen Vests are always a must have (or T's), they are comfortable and breathable. Try bright colours, they won't seem as harsh due to the sheerness of the fabric. Go for natural fabrics for your summer capsule, they will last longer and will be more comfortable in heat.
I like to always have a black knit in my capsule, I throw it on over everything. Think about making different outfits with the same garments.
Floaty sleeves and boho styles again are always a winner in summer.
Lots of Boho floaty styles around this spring summer so you may have to get things taken up (if you have shorter legs) but length doesn't seem to matter. Bright or white and floaty, the perfect holiday pieces.
Swimwear is one of the hardest pieces to buy into without seeing it on the body it is intended for. It is a really hard thing to buy online also.
I hate bikini shopping for myself as I feel everyone does. There are some great brands out there who do specialise in larger cup sizes but sometimes they are the same styles which only larger cups, straps need to be wider and the bikini should stay up without the straps on for support.
Heidi Klein has some styles specially for D-G cup, these are made well for larger bust sizes.
I am so in love with Accessories this season, I'm coming round to the 60's style sunglasses and I know they will not be for everyone as they are a real SS18 shape.
I am enjoying all the colourful pieces, lots of gold jewellery and shoes. Pull out all your white accessories if you have them as white is here for summer!
There are a huge number of co-ordinating pieces out there this season. These are fab investments, they can be worn in so many different ways. Together as a top and skirt combo, separately, make them look like a dress etc.
THIS BLOG IS NOT AN AD FOR ANY OF THE COMPANIES USED, THIS IS JUST ME FINDING STYLES THAT I LOVE.
