FASHION FRIDAY - CONTEMPORARY WORKWEAR

27/01/2017

Happy Friday guys. How's your week been?

It's been non-stop here at the Closet London HQ, as we prepare to launch our next collection; "Sail La Vie' (Teaser imagery and behind-the-scenes coming to the Blog Monday). Anyway, as I was saying... It's been uber busy here and everyone has been styling their workwear to the max, which got me thinking about workwear once again. I asked around the office for everyone's top picks, when it comes to Closet workwear styles and this is the final cut! I've pulled together the favourites and teamed them with some contemporary accessories to create a Fashion Friday capsule collection, perfect for S/S 2017.
Enjoy!

1 Black Gathered Waist Dress
I love this dress! It's simple, sophisticated and super trendy. If you're looking for an investment piece then this one is for you. It works beautifully as workwear in all seasons. It's long sleeves, high neck and long line skirt provide warmth, whilst the comfy relaxed fit and gathered waist drapes on the form and creates a really edgy silhouette. Team it with some bold yet practical accessories for work, or high heels and clutch for your night out.

2 High Collar Pleated Dress
You'll be hard pressed to find another dress like it! The long sleeves and fitted body sculpt the form and create clean lines over the figure, whilst the pleated skirt provides comfort and cover around the hips. I'm especially in love with the contrast detailing and Denim-esque look. It's a fresh avant-garde look for your S/S workwear wardrobe. Team it with minimalistic black accessories and ankle boots to get a trend setting look.

3 Gathered 3/4 Sleeve Blouse + 4 Bow Tie Cropped Trousers
This combination really has attitude, but it's all about the accessories and how you wear it. Not only is the combo comfy but the cut off trousers with pleated waist and flared top with sharp 3/4 sleeves, cuts an edgy silhouette. Wear it with comfy flats or go uber modern with some thin black heels, contemporary earrings and statement bracelet.

Have a great weekend guys and see you next Friday!

CLOSET LOVES - RAW DENIM

09/01/2017

Denim separates are big news right now and nothing will work harder in your S/S17 wardrobe than a collection of denim pieces that you can team with just about anything - Timeless, comfortable, and a great wardrobe staple.

The great thing about this collection of pieces is that it's not actually denim! Each style has its own unique composition of yarns, however, the result is the same: a collection of garments that look denim, yet feel light to the touch and effortlessly easy to wear, making them a comfy alternative for the Spring/ Summer season.

This style is by far my favorite piece from the Blank Canvas collection. It's an update on an existing best-selling style. This season we've added a  cute little band to the neckline that's pleated on the shoulder (to give it soft drape) and added 3/4 split sleeves. it's a comfy style that looks gorgeous tucked in or left out.

FASHION FRIDAY - CONTEMPORARY ART

06/01/2017

It's a pretty bleak start to the New Year with lashings of cold weather, so most of our time is spent out and about making the most of what London has to offer. Which is why this week's Fashion Friday is dedicated to cultural weekends. We are in love with Contemporary Art and what better way than a Fashion Friday to show off some of our vibrant new styles.

I've added a varied and bold collection of dresses and accessories to brighten up your weekend.

1 Printed Tulip dress
I love this dress simply because it's fun, bright and a signature Closet style. Our Tulip dress always does well and this piece is no different. I've teamed this best seller with some truly contemporary accessories - deciding to move away from matching colours. I've added some colour pop earrings and colour blocked stripy heels to give it some kick. I've also added a lovely geometric leather tote to keep it clean.

2 Kimono wrap dress
Another favorite shape of mine! This teal cross over looks fab draped on the body and combined with some punchy accessories, creates a comfortable yet stylish contemporary look, perfect for lunch and a day at the gallery.

3 Printed wrap dress
Last but by no means least, this statement wrap dress is a real winner. The variety of colours allows you to mix and match your accessories in true Fashion Friday style. I've teamed this piece with some quirky matching heels, a geometric textured clutch and another set of contemporary earrings.

All in all a collection that wouldn't feel out of place on show at an art exhibition!

Enjoy your weekend!
