Bank Christmas in July event – Simply Stunning

Another hot, indeed scorching, Summer day, and another event where we were looking towards the festive season. This time the event was in the swish surroundings of London’s Westbury hotel, and the brand in question was Bank. And if, like me, you think of Bank as a destination only catering for very young, casual and fast fashion, be prepared to have a serious rethink, because the Bank Christmas in July event was full of glitter and sparkle.

There was definitely vintage inspiration on show in the collection, with beading, embellishment and sequins all heavily in evidence. The Great Gatsby elegance shows no signs of disappearing, and 1920s style evening dresses were a major part of the overall evening look.

Blogger Karen from Frumpy to Funky loved this dress!

 

Another really impressive part of the new collections was the accessory range. I totally fell in love with a pair of red, jewelled heels that will retail for less than £40. These are totally gorgeous and would just transform a little black dress into a party outfit. A great range of clutch bags also caught the eye.

This being a Christmas press day, you couldn’t escape from the ubequitous Christmas jumper, and Bank have an excellent range, not due in store until early December, but well worth the wait. My pick was the white fluffy reindeer jumper, which was just so soft, and really unusual.

There was so much to admire at this, my first Bank press event. Here are a few more pictures of what you can expect in the coming months.

I love the green bodice of this dress, can imagine Kristen Stewart wearing this.

The laser cut detail on this leatherette dress is a nod to Giles and is perfect for those girls who want to avoid being too dressy.

Just look at the beautiful neckline and swirl detail on this bodice – so beautiful.

A selection of Spring Jeans from Bank Fashion

Whatever the season, whatever the weather, it is safe to say that most of us will still be wearing a pair of jeans in some form. Since the 1950s, when denim moved from being a fabric made for workwear, to a wardrobe staple made cool by the likes of Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and Brigitte Bardot, jeans have become a must have for any woman, worn casually by day, and dressed up by night. And, right at this moment, there are simply so many styles available that we can safely say we are almost in the midst of a denim explosion.

But what jeans to choose? The ladies of the outfit sharing site Avenue 57 are constantly having discussions of the merits of the boyfriend jean, with most believing these are best suited to boyish slim figures. Bootcut have been the jeans of choice for curvy ladies for many years, but recently the tide has been turning on what are sometimes considered mom jeans. Now curvy ladies (me included) are actually embracing skinny and straight leg jeans and finding these can look very stylish on the size 14+ figure. And as for coloured denims, these seem set to stick around for a long time.

You can find a great selection of women’s jeans at Bank Fashion. From skinnies to coloured denim, by way of jeggings and boyfriend jeans, there are just so many great styles to choose from. Plus they have some seriously impressive brands on offer too, sure to please the pickiest of denim connoisseurs.
