Kingsday is just around the corner. But before you start stacking up on ill-fitting orange T-shirts, shorts, cheap ass plastic caps, headbands and glasses, we’d like to give you a different idea on how to wear orange. You see, it doesn’t have to be bold and bright all over. As our favorite streetstyle stars have shown us recently just a jacket or coat can make enough of a color statement. And an all black outfit with a touch of tangerine works just as well. Want to celebrate the King’s birthday in the most subtle way? How about an orange colored pair of those arty ‘cat-eye’ glasses worn with a sharp looking on trend look. Queen Maxima will certainly approve. Chances are she is not even wearing orange the 27th.

If we’d have to name the ultimate way to sport the logomania trend (besides that Gucci headband we saw this winter) it would be by joining in on the current soccer scarf hype. And yes, you can keep your Manchester, Real Madrid or AC Milan accessories at home. Vetements, Off White and other current trend should have their logo up there. As far as rules apply: the bolder, the better. Yet wear it with a careless attitude. Spring might have sprung, but there will still be those night where you’d wanna tuck in and wrap up against the cold. Now which fashion club are you supporting this season?

With mesh and plastic being the most used materials you really need to make sure you get that pedicure appointment done in time. From Alexander Wang and Balmain to Dior and Valentino proved next to nude shoes are a ‘thing’ for SS2018. The perfect detail to top off that mini skirt or downgrade that sexy dress. From sandals to pumps, to booties and boots; time to show off those perfectly colored toe nails. Or did you get cold feet?

A good skirt or dress can surely impresss, but this season the sex appeal of a good pair of shorts is getting some extra focus. Right-above-the-knee shorts as seen at Balmain and Chanel or ultra short like the ones we spotted at Chloé and Saint Laurent. Relaxing shorts (Alberta Ferretti), denim shorts (Coach), boyish shorts (Prada), sporty shorts (Louis Vuitton) and the absolute chicest shorts (Dries van Noten). With so many styles around, stating shorts aren’t your ‘thing’ is just not an option. From plain and comfy to luxurious and sparkly there’s a matching pair in store to match just about any clothing style. And let’s not forget the possibility it gives you to show of your stunner legs. Go shorty!

We’re diminishing our use of plastic anywhere else, but in fashion it’s more trending than ever. Plastic parts and complete transparency formed a big theme for SS2018. Some of the biggest names in the game like Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Burberry and Valentino threw their own little plastic party. Balmain is even taking the trend one step further as the brand’s FW2018 collection fully focuses on the material as well. From convenient raincoats to dresses, handbags and even see through boots; we’re loving the fact that plastic can look this fantastic. Shiny, futuristic, recyclable and even kind of sexy if you like.

When it comes to sunnies you basically have two great style options this summer. You either go big & bold like Coach, Lanvin and Fendi. Or you go sharply shaped/cateye-ish like the ones we spotted at Acne, Prada, MSGM, Gurung, Rochas and Rykiel. Either way you’re bound to get tons of comments throughout the day. These sunglasses aren’t called statement makers for no reason! So it’s up to you to decide. Will you go dreamy and retro of fierce and futuristic? Whatever style you choose these glasses can make your #ootd and are sure to get you some extra likes on the gram. Sunny side up!

It’s been one of the biggest growing make-up trends and it’s here to stay (FW2018 is already further elaborating on this trend): metallics! And we don’t jus mean a shiny eye shadow we’re talking Kira Kira, bling bling! So this comes down to chunky, shiny beads, glitters and sequins on eyes (Undercover), cheeks (Jeremy Scott), lips (Dries van Noten) and hands (Scognamiglio). It’s like wearing a new piece of jewelry, on your face! So don’t hold back and live your metallic make-up moment to the fullest. Sparkle, shimmer and shine bright like a diamond!

Trend Report SS2018: Out of the (hat) box

Forget fisherman’s hats and flat caps, if your hat game is going to be anything this season it’s bold and out of the box! No rules, no restrictions; if you want to give this hat trend a good chance you go all out! So start vintage shopping and market strolling for the craziest, most ridiculous and extraordinary hat or head piece and rock it like your life’s depending on it. A big (Easter bunny) bow as seen at Delpozo perhaps? A funky cap in the brightest pink (see Area and Byblos)? A safari hat (Loewe) or the floppiest of all hats out there (Missoni)? A sporty sun cap (Fenty), an extra elegant braided hat (Comey) or a simple scarf tied around the head in the most classic way. Hats off to this trend for making dress up styles become (somewhat) everyday pieces.

Aloha! No matter the temperature; SS2018 is going to be exotic. Marc Jacobs went all out with kaftans and turbans in the most colorful and tropical prints. At Versace skirts and bikini tops were just as bright and poppy. Gucci sent out the ultimate Hawaiian inspired skirt suit (paired with glittery gloves and a pile of necklaces). As Dries van Noten created the chicest flora and fauna print mix. At Elie Saab we witnessed a complete line-up of palm tree inspired/printed dresses. And then Peter Pilotto and Delpozo joined in on the foreign fun. If this image gallery doesn’t get you in the mood for hot summer days and long summer nights, we don’t know what will. Be Palm Beach ready whatever beach you’ll be flaunting around on.

Trend Report SS2018: Ear Party

Whoever ditched her earrings for season after season (like we did) is now in for a treat. Time to change up the accessory game and stack up on some fresh ear pieces. Right, it’s not just rings or studs anymore. A good ear party requires some out of the box thinking. Who doesn’t want a pink horse (like Gigi at Maxwell) in her ears? Or why not go all out with the loveliest, asymmetrical flower pieces? Speaking of asymmetry, Missoni and Zimmerman painted a pretty one statement piece picture. We spotted life size pearls at Undercover as well as the chunkiest metallic hoops at Fenty. Chandelier inspired designs made their way onto the Dries van Noten and Etro runway. As Acne went for something quite arty. Lots of style options for a good game of ear accessorizing. And might you think this is all still a little too subtle? The combination of powerful eye make-up and a stunner ear game worked pretty well at Comey, Undercover, Marni and Antonio Marras. So. join in on the fun while it lasts and have a great ear party!
