TSR’S ED­I­TOR-IN-CHIEF, OR­LAGH MCLAUGH­LIN, PRESENTS HER DIFINITIVE SS15 STYLE GUIDE

The Snobby Runway - - Contents -

Spring/Sum­mer 2015 is all about ruf­fles, denim, sheer and checked pat­terns, mixed in with sim­ple clas­sics like el­e­gant blaz­ers and crisp, cot­ton shirts. Here’s my list of must have styles to up­date your wardrobe with this sea­son. The Denim Dress:

The hottest denim sil­hou­ette for the new year is the dress. Tra­di­tion­ally box­ier, de­sign­ers have now taken to the run­ways with stun­ning denim dresses in many styles. My favourite is the must have pleated denim. It gives the most fem­i­nine touch and works well with sky­high heels for a night out or with moto boots for a more re­laxed day­time look.

The Gla­di­a­tor Wedges:

For sum­mer, make sure you have a pair of gla­di­a­tor wedges. Though pre­vi­ous years styles have leant to­wards a more min­i­mal­ist ver­sion, bolder straps and ties are com­ing back with fer­vour for this year’s warm-weather months.

The Pen­dant Neck­lace:

Stash your state­ment neck­laces af­ter the new year and opt for one of the pen­dant va­ri­ety in­stead. A slim, elon­gated chain with your pen­dant (or col­lec­tion of charms!) hang­ing from it is this year’s go-to neck­lace style, which is both el­e­gant and re­fined.

The Chic Doc­tor Carry-All:

A bag that’s both on trend and prac­ti­cal can be hard to find, but de­sign­ers are com­ing to the res­cue with chic, over­size bag op­tions with a doc­tor’s style that doesn’t come across as too ca­sual. Grab a luxe tote-size car­ryall in but­tery soft leather or vel­vety suede. They are so­phis­ti­cated and large enough to carry your life in but chic enough to take with you ev­ery­where.

The Util­ity Skirt:

Army and util­ity dress­ing is re­lax­ing a bit and comes to you this year in the form of shirt­dresses and wrap skirts. This tra­di­tion­ally ca­sual, menswear in­spired trend is be­ing re­born with a fresh in­fu­sion of fem­i­nine charm. Alexan­der Wang 2015.

Block Checks:

In re­cent years we have seen many flo­ral prints and 3-D flower em­bel­lish­ments in S/S col­lec­tions, but this year check de­tail­ing is back in the style de­part­ments and fash­ion shows. Make a state­ment by dress­ing in checked pat­terns – the big­ger check de­tail­ing you wear, the bet­ter.

Some­thing Light and Ruf­fled:

Ruf­fles are the epit­ome of fem­i­nine charm, but you don’t want to look like you’re wear­ing a bad 80’s prom dress. This spring, wear ruf­fles in sheer fab­rics with sim­ple hem­lines, un­der­stated pe­plums, and tiny ac­cent­ing trims. Don’t go for any­thing too struc­tured or stiff with these - it’s all about move­ment.

Over­sized Sun­glasses:

Ac­ces­sorise in style this sea­son, with over­sized sun­glasses. Way­farer, avi­a­tor or oval-shaped frames glasses are all trend­ing and make sure you spare no ex­pense when tai­lor­ing the look to match your style.
