Venice Film Festival – Best Looks

The Venice Film Festival is always a glittering and glamorous affair. Although less well known than Cannes, Venice still has its fair share of A List movie stars who come to publicise their latest movies, wearing an array of stunning daytime and Red Carpet outfits as they do so.  The 2017 festival has been no exception to this.

This years festival has been attended by Helen Mirren, Jane Fonda, Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Bosworth. Fashion mavericks Chloe Sevigny and Girls star Zosia Mamet have had a stellar festival, but for me, there is one lady who has totally stole the show with her choice of outfits. British star Rebecca Hall has totally killed it on the red carpet with a whole host of beautiful, elegant looks. I loved her in ‘Starter for 10’ and ‘Frost/Nixon’ and think her star is definitely going to be rising in 2018. Jennifer Lawrence is another lady who has had a super stylish Venice, and Kate Bosworth has also made some stunning choices.

Here are a few more fabulous looks from Venice, with a few red carpet worthy dresses that you can find on the High Street.

The top festival fashion trends for 2017

It is that time of year again, music festival time. Music festivals are all the rage these days and can be a great deal of fun for all. Whether you attend the festival to partake in fun food and drink, find your new favorite band, or listen to an old favorite, this article will help you pick the most fashionable threads to wear this year. To find additional ideas, check out more festival fashion here.

If you are attending Firefly, Coachella, or Hangout Fest, one thing is in common. You will need clothes that are suitable for warm weather climates. Festivals often offer a low-key, “anything goes” kind of vibe which means that you can wear pretty much anything or very little for that matter.

Matching Sets. Crop tops and high-waisted pants made from the same fabric and pattern are very trendy this year. While it does not take long at all to put these items on, you will look like you spent a great deal of time styling your attire. Add some cute sandals and your outfit is sure to be popular.

 

Fishnet tights. An item that most would not think about wearing in hot weather, fishnet tights are a big hit at festivals this year. People are choosing to wear them underneath a pair of cut off jean shorts along with black boots.

 

Ringer tees. Highly popular in the 70s, ringer tees are back and trendier than ever. Most popular are ringer tees with a type of popular statement such as but certainly not limited to, “make love, not war.” A comfy tee like this along with a fedora, comfy pair of shoes, and cut off jean shorts make a perfect outfit for sitting on a blanket while enjoying the music and fellowship that is taking place around you.

 

Dungarees. Every so often dungarees become a huge trend and everyone will be seen wearing them. This year, overall style jeans and shorts are quite popular among teens and young adults alike. When wearing dungarees, add some personality to them by applying an embroidered patch or rolling the pant legs to make a cuff. Dungarees are comfortable and can be styled to be more casual by wearing some Converse Allstars and a simple white tee underneath. Wear your hair in a ponytail and you will look all-American chic.

 

Tie dye. This one is not much of a surprise as tie dye is perfect for accomplishing a fun, festive look with minimal effort. You can purchase a variety of items already tie-dyed such as shirts, shoes, bandanas, and shorts at your local mall. Or if you want a more personalized look, you can easily tie dye any item that you desire on your own. All you have to do is get a large container, fill it with cold water, and add some dye. Take parts of your shirt and twist into balls and tie with rubber bands. Dip slowly into the dye/water mixture and allow it to soak to the hue you desire. Allow the shirt to dry for a period of time and then wash it by itself so that any excess dye does not stain other clothing. All that is left is to dry it and wear it!

 

Six great ways to accessorise this Summer

I love summer. Who doesn’t? But I have to admit that I hate the rat race. There is so much to do and not enough time to do it before the sun comes, and the worst thing that can happen is to not be ready. When it comes to hitting the beach in a bikini I´d need to hit a gym months in advance. The thought of all those perfectly toned girls sitting next to me is enough to make me shiver (as I reach for another ice cream though…). But, getting ready for the summer doesn’t have to be difficult, especially when you´re letting your clothes do the talking! In fact, I followed these accessory tips this year and couldn’t have been happier.

 

Statement Earrings

There is no better way to stand out from the crowd than with bold earrings. They are hard to get right because they can look tacky if you don’t pick the perfect ones. But, if you do they can transform your look in a very subtle way. When summer hits, go with jewels that are light and transparent for the best effect. Statement earrings are risky, but they are well worth it so give them a chance.

Embellished Sandals

 I love my shoes, but when summer turns up, it’s like I have to forget about them for the season. That is unless you pick sandals and flats that are bold. They don’t have to be crazy different, so embellished sandals with a quirky design are a fantastic option.

Tattoos

 Nothing grabs attention like a tattoo. They are instantly recognisable and make people think, mainly because a lot of people want one but don’t have the guts. Here’s a little tip: you don’t need the guts either. Temporary tattoos are a great alternative for people who have always wanted one, but who don’t want to mark their body permanently in the process. They look legitimate so no one will ever know the difference, but after a couple of months it will start to fade away.

 Rings And Watches

 There is no better look than a subtle watch and ring combination. If you do it correctly, it is a style that is perfect for the summer. Go for real silver or gold rings and watches, and the more metal, the better. Silver tends to be the best option because it is a lot easier to combine with your style, plus fake gold looks tacky. Wear them t-shirts or casual dresses for the best look.

DIY Vests

 Get a dress or a t-shirt that you don’t wear anymore and attack it with the scissors. Stylish vests are hard to come by, so a DIY vest is a fantastic alternative. You can have the style that you have always wanted, plus it doesn’t cost you any extra. Even better, it´s lots of fun!

 Long Necklaces

 Long necklaces complement your style perfectly. They look great with simple t-shirts and tank tops, plus they don’t touch your skin that is a must for summer accessories.
