5 key summer trends to wear now

5 key summer trends to wear now

Dear KNOMI readers, 

 

Spring/Summer 17 trends have got all of us so excited! Why? Well, it's inherently an upbeat season. From de-costruncted materials to the most saturated palettes, this season joy is oozing from every stitch and every seam. Want to be a punk princess in a bright fuchsia dress? You can. Because this season who's making the rules is YOU, so here's the 5 key trends you need to be wearing this summer

Kendall Jenner's favorite piece of clothing is going to be everywhere this summer. Bralettes are for ladies who love to wear underwear as outerwear. They'll be strappy, like the one the models wears on the Alexander Wang catwalk, printed and more structured.

Kitten heels have made a huge comeback this season, so whether you prefer a mule or a sling-back, a thick heel or a perfect point, it's time to cast those vertiginous stilettos at the back of your wardrobe and make way for the kitten heels. 

Pink, particularly of the fuchsia variety, flooded the SS17 catwalks. Layer it in different hues or color block by wearing a statement coat over statement separates or a dress. You can't go wrong as long as it's pink, pink, pink.

Shirts were a very big story on SS17 catwalks. From extra volume, long sleeves, wide sleeves, gathered cuffs, ruffles, every twist and turn you could possibly imagine on a shirt was seen on the catwalks. 

What can fit into one of these mini bags? Well, the essentials of course; lipstick, phone, credit card. If you still feel like you need more space to store your treasures, you can pair a mini bag to a slightly larger bag and still be on trend. 

What to wear to Chelsea In Bloom

What to wear to Chelsea In Bloom

Dear KNOMI readers, 

The world class alternative flower show is back, this year for its 12th anniversary. Didn't manage to get tickets for the flower show? Not a problem. From the 22nd to the 27th of May, the streets of Chelsea will be transformed with beautiful floral displays, while retailers, restaurants and hotels compete by adorning themselves with creative designs. This year's theme, inspired by adventure, discovery and exotic animals, is 'Floral Safari'.

If you're planning on adventuring around the streets of London's most exclusive district during this exciting time, we've thought of the perfect outfits for the occasion. Whether you're visiting straight after work or on a day that you've got all to yourself, here's some suggestions on what to wear to enjoy this event in style while also staying comfortable. 

If it's your day off and you're determined to stay comfy but don't want to compromise style, opt for some casual jeans paired up with a chic top to elevate the look. Sliders and a small bag to store your precious belongings that you can't leave the house without. No need for large bags, not carrying any work around today. 

Got work but still don't want to miss out on this event? A perfect outfit that can take you from work to free time is one that you can feel comfortable in while looking sharp at the same time. You'll definitely need a pair of comfortable shoes if you're going to strolling around Chelsea admiring the work from all the contestants taking part in the flower show. Opt for a large day bag that can fit everything you'll need at work plus some space for any flowers you might pick here and there. 

Have you woken up feeling girly but want to add a little edge? Opt for a summery dress paired with combat booties. Throw on a pair of sunglasses and start exploring Chelsea in all its beauty when it's adorned in flowers. 

Which out of these three do you think you would most go for?

 

With love,
