Fashion to dominate the second half of 2021

Fashion to dominate the second half of 2021

As we enter into the second half of the year I though we should take a little look ahead and see what’s to come in the way of trends and fashion we will see on the streets!
Tie Dye
This trend is not going anywhere yet in fact it is only gaining momentum – Some may love it, some may err on the side of caution. Personally I love it and as we move further into the year we will bring you some beauties to style into your wardrobes!
WHY WE LOVE IT – Fashion colours to dominate the second half of 2021 Tie dye is utilising the natural source of dyes – many will shy away from overly manufactured harmful dying techniques, this trend starts to celebrate the use of natural and kinder dye processes out earth desperately needs

Minimalism
Thinking back to a story I wrote on track pants, this is the umbrella trend that is over the new normal we are living in as a planet. People are looking to simple, comfortable, no fuss clothes that still look good and make us feel like we are ready for the day, even if that day is WFH.
WHY WE LOVE IT – Basics with interesting details is honestly the best way to build a great wardrobe! Well cut too of course, As designers focus more on the everyday than trend pieces we start to have options from our favourite brands that will have staying more staying power.

Slow Craft
It’s all in the details, slow craft is the new luxury exploring hand made details you just cant get in fast fashion. Classic shapes and styles will be where this trend lives with bespoke details.
WHY WE LOVE IT – Investment pieces that will stand the test of time. Modern vintage.

Habits Stylish Women Have

Habits Stylish Women Have

Stylish women do a few things when developing healthy fashion habits and the effects of having good habits when it comes to building a wardrobe we have listed below to help you achieve a fabulous wardrobe you love. Lets deep dive.
 

Stylish Women
Stylish Women Habits

 
1 They take care of their items
Taking care of your clothes means you will have longevity in the pieces you invest in. Investing in styles that are well made and suit you means they will last. You wont need to continually buy more and more because the items you have are made to last – and because you brought well – these styles suit you girl! Basics and classics are best for this.
2 They embrace neutrals
Getting a good amount of neutrals in your wardrobe is smart to build those base pieces and then layer the trend colours on top. When you are I the shops and you see the hot pink top or the lime green pants and you fall in love – trust me when I say when this is back in your wardrobe you WILL feel differently. Im not saying dont have them – by all means do! But have a good amount of base styles to wear with it.
3. They don’t rush getting ready
I am maybe not the best example of this (who has the time ), but I know how to drive my wardrobe so to speak, I can get caught out every so often and oh heck is that a nightmare.. I suggest choosing a piece and knowing what other pieces work with that particular piece. Not everything is cut to sit well with every piece you own. No matter how awesome your body shape is some clothes just wont work together.
4 They err on the side of less is more
Look dont get me wrong, I am a fan of Print and Patten clash, as I am of self expression.. But, if you want to look well put together, with an outfit that compliments you and not the outfit taking over then subtle is best, lines that suit you are best and tones that work best on you will bring out your best – get ready for the compliments
5. They pay attention to little styling details
Oooo this is why I love fashion so much! You can tell a story, you can add fun elements, you can bring a whole  vibe together and it just all become a vision of interest and well.. style.. Knowing how to style is knowing how to dress for your shape! Its as simple as that.. Well maybe that’s the place to start anyway If you want to learn which shapes suit YOUR body shape CLICK HERE to purchase the Complete Style Guide, a personalised guide contains over 100 styles that suit your shape, 50 plus colours that work best for your complexion and a breakdown of your Style ID.

6 They study classic fashion
The classics get classic status for one reason, they have stood the test of time.Through leg warmers being cool, MC Hammer pants to Juicy Couture velour tracksuits.. Classics stay, classics last and classics will see you through when you most need them to. Let’s all take a moment to appreciate this wardrobe staples that don’t let you down. Ever.
7. They weave trends in carefully
As with the afore mentioned styles, trends can be a very slippery slope, what’s cool today can be hideous tomorrow.. My rule of thumb when selecting the trends is go with the styles that suit your shape, colours and style ID. this will ensure they have longevity as a cool and different item once the trend has no doubt passed on.. See habit 5 to know your body shape, colour palette and style ID.
8. They rewear their favourites
Yes that’s right! We can rewear styles we love!! Now Im just going to sound like a broken record.. If you get gems that work well for your shape ( actually all pieces) then they should all go together! Meaning you can have LOTS and LOTS of outfits juts reworked and restyled different ways! Fun!!
9. They elevate their look with an accessory
Im an earring person myself, but the trick here is to complete the look, done leave your outfit half done by not completing it with some well chosen accessories that work with the outfit!
10. They like to be comfy, but skip full-on athleisure
Being comfortable and styling my clients comfortably is literally everything! For me , there is nothing more hard to look at than someone who is pulling at their outfit or clearly doesn’t feel comfortable is what they are wearing. it also bears my heart a little as I know that when someone feels great in their outfit – they shine!! Again – well fitting clothes is the key to this equation.

11. They take the time to groom
You can be in a simple outfit, but if you hair is outgrown, nails kinda scraggly and skin looking dry then darling you should take some time for YOU!! We have all been there, life gets busy, kids or work are demanding everything and you go by the way side. Take a minute, heck take half a day! Focus in you..
12. They stay true to themselves
Getting caught up in fashion can not only be a financial burden but can also leave you with a sloo of clothes you hardly wear and ultimately collect dust until you give away to charity or worse yet add the the growing pollution of thrown out clothing. Buying smart and clothes that you love to wear that gio with each other creating many outfits is the ultimate in having a fabulous working wardrobe. Buying willy nilly trends will lead to a critical situation that has many ramifications.
13. They know what looks good on them
To add to the above – dont get caught up in what looks good on instagram or on that other person with a completely different body shape to you! Ive been there, a style ive absolutely loved.. but was NEVER ever going to work with my body shape, yes it hurt and yes I walked away turning my hips.. but I tell you, id rather all my clothes make me look and feel amazing than spending on something that would never look good on me. Its the cut of that design. Its not you, remember that, walk away and find something better!
14. They have fun with fashion
Lastly!!!! Fashion is for EVERYONE!! No matter what your shape, you have amazing options that can be styled up and create fabulous outfits. Remember you are worth that. Enjoy!

Taking Five With Mimi LaMontagne, Founder of The Silk Robe

What’s your inspiration for your collection of The Silk Robe?

Inspiration comes from necessity with The Silk Robe. I was first inspired to create The Silk Robe when I felt a need for the product – when I found myself relaxing at home, and NOT feeling good about what I chose to wear. That’s where the inspiration comes from for the brand.

For the collection and the pieces within the range, I drew on a combination of elements – timeless cuts and clean lines, inspired by French streetwear; our signature contrast side stripe, inspired by the more sport-focused brands that give our range a point of difference and a contemporary edge; and lastly, travel. I’m inspired by nothing more than seeing someone at the airport, dressed to the nines and looking more comfortable than every woman in the room. There is a certain art to looking fantastic while being totally, utterly comfortable, and seeing someone master that makes me so happy. Our goal with The Silk Robe is to make that easy for every woman.

What’s the most important thing about relaxing in cute loungewear?

Feeling good about yourself! Being a woman in today’s modern world is signing up for a busy life, a life where your phone is always ringing and there’s always something that somebody needs. It’s more important now than ever to remind ourselves we deserve a break,we need to switch off! And when we do give ourselves that luxury, we deserve to have something better to wear than an old oversized t-shirt. To relax and recharge in luxury is to truly treat yourself; it’s a game changer in how one thinks about self-care.

What’s your fave relax-y pastime wearing TSR?

Oh, I love this question! One of my favourite things to do is to make pasta. I find it very therapeutic, and a really fun way to spend the evening whether you’re alone or with friends. Rolling dough, having a glass of red, listening to music and relaxing, wearing silk and feeling fantastic in the safe haven of your home. And, if I just don’t have the energy to cook, then ordering takeaway pizza, putting the feet up, lighting a candle and reading a book. It might sound cliché, but it works!

What’s your fave colourway?

I love them all for different reasons. I can’t just choose one, so, here are my favourite. The Black Sambuca or White Russian colourways. Because black and white are both so versatile, and can be dressed up to the nines without any effort at all. The Merlot colourway, I find it so rich and striking. It makes a statement without being too loud and it’s a great winter colour. If I’m in warm weather, the Chartreuse colourway is very light and summery. It’s also quite unique and I always get complements. It has a knack at brightening a room!

When designing, what elements do you keep in mind?

Timelessness

These are investment pieces, and they are designed to span the ages. They are not designed with seasonal trends in mind. I use simple and flattering cuts with clean lines to create timeless pieces for every woman, every age.

Quality

Quality is of the utmost importance to us. We go to great lengths to ensure the quality of our silk and the manufacturing of our product is of the highest quality possible. Our customer is discerning, and we will do everything we can to ensure that she loves her silk, and will be wearing it for years.

Versatility

I truly believe the modern world isn’t a place for fashion that isn’t versatile. We move at such a fast pace, and just as quickly as we are relaxing at home we can be out on the town with the gals, or headed to a last minute business meeting. The pieces in our range are designed to be versatile enough to suit every situation, and can be mixed and matched with other pieces in your closet.

Fun

At the end of the day our closet is full of pieces that we LOVE. That inspire us, that make us feel good, that enhance our lives in some way. Quality silk needs to be all of the principles listed above – but it also needs to have a bit of flair and fun. That’s where our signature side stripe comes in, along with unique colourways that can be worn as a matching set, or as mix-and-match.

Why should everyone have a collection of TSR?

Because you deserve to treat yourself! You work hard, and you deserve to relax in luxury, whether that’s sitting on a plane en route to your summer holiday, sitting on the couch with your feet up, or sitting at a table with good company. You deserve to relax and recharge in luxury.
