Simply Be – New season trends and Competition!

January 24th, 2012

Simply Be’s new collection is an absolute scorcher! Full of vintage inspired pieces, in an array of bright and sorbet shades, this is a collection that has something for everyone. Love pretty dresses? Simply Be has them in multiple. Prefer a more minimalist look? Yes, its got that too? Don’t do dresses? Well, what about a cool, vintage inspired jumpsuit. This is a collection that is just full of pieces you will add to your wardrobe and wear all summer long…and then beyond.

Here are some of my absolute favourites from a wonderful collection.

This 60s inspired dress is just so pretty.Β  Using lace to give it just a touch of ‘Middleton’, this is a perfect dress for a romantic evening out and would look fabulous with opaque tights on cooler days. This looks like something Zooey Deschanel would wear, and that can’t be a bad thing.

Maxi skirts are more streamlined this season, and have a sexier edge to them, with front split details. They have immense wearability, team them with a boyfriend blazer and brogues for a cool everyday look, or style with wedges and a silk tee for an evening occasion.

If minimalism is more your style, this is the perfect look for you. Casual, but with dressy details like the scalloped edging on the soft pink top and that fabulous satchel, this is my perfect travelling in style look, whether your destination is Barbados, Benidorm or Bognor.

This kimono sleeved jacket has a real boho feel to it. I love the floral applique and would add this is to holiday suitcase, it could be anything from a beach cover up to an addition to a little black dress.

This is my absolute favourite item from the new collection. The gorgeous sunshine yellow shade is so eye-catching, and the zip detail gives this boho style a contemporary edge. Wear with simple jeans and flip-flops, and add an English heritage style chunky knit for when the chills set in.
