How To Update Your Wardrobe With This Seasons Denim Trend!

Denim is big this spring, i know straight away everyone thinks jeans, but denim can be brought into your wardrobe in many ways, a denim lace and pearls scarf, a denim colour ethnic print tunic or even a denim colour lace poncho.  anything that has a denim colour will do to update your wardrobe and be on trend this spring/summer!

Not all of us are following the ripped jeans trend, love it or hate it personally not for me but you can still use elements of denim with any outfit, especially with the use of a scarf with a crisp white t-shirt you will look sophisticated and up to date. A DENIM LACE AND PEARLS SCARF is just the accessory especially as lace is also big this season.

Alternatively try a tunic or dress in a denim coloured material, it does not have to be obvious as in actual denim in fact wearing the colours instead of the fabric is subtle.The choice of fabric is also important, now the weather is warming up denim itself can be heavy duty and stiff and hot to wear. Choosing a lighter weight fabric such as jersey or silk and fabric with elastane for comfort.

Ideal choices are a denim swing Tunic or an ethnic printed Tunic with denim colours. Finally why not combine two trends lace and denim with a Denim lace poncho ideal to throw over a cami top or t-shirt.

To keep up to date you need not spend a fortune, just choose one piece or a denim scarf as an accessory, prices start from as little as £19.99 all items available at http://www.debeersdesign.com/

So go on, go get yourself something Denim!

 

 

How to dress up your jeans this weekend!

kimonos are the perfect accessory to wear with jeans, if you are going to the pub or out for a meal wearing a kimono makes an ordinary outfit into something individual and eye-catching.

There are so many designs to choose from, printed fabric, silk devore, sleeveless long kimonos, short jacket kimonos, beaded, fringed  you name it there are so many variables with kimonos. Some are very exotic and colourful, botanic and floral prints are summer style staples this season.

kimonos are so versatile, you can dress them up, wear over a plain dress or team up with smart trousers and heels. My favourite is to dress up your jeans with a plain t-shirt or white lace top wear either a long sleeveless kimono or a short kimono jacket over the top.team up with a pair of espadrille heels for a real up to date look.

The real benefit of a kimono is the price range, they are so reasonably priced that you need not feel guilty for spending on clothing again this month as many designs are priced under £20.00 for a plain fabric kimono. Should you splash out on a silk devore kimono it won’t break the bank either at around £55.00 a snip compared to the high street which would be between £75.00-£100.00. Devore Kimonos  are well worth investing in, as wardrobe staples they are the perfect pieces to bring out this week, month, in fact in 5 years time they would still be relevent to bring out when you need that one key piece of inspiration.

So go on this weekend grab yourself a kimono to combine with your jeans or any other combination, don’t forget it is also a holiday piece ready for your summer hols as well.

Swarovski Drop Earrings

well it’s been a busy week at the shop and uploading new stock onto De Beers Designs Website. One new arrival that was very eye catching were some Swarovski Drop Earrings, called midnight colour range. They were so striking it got me thinking about what is it about Diamonds,sparkle and bling that get us girls so excited. How can we achieve that expensive million dollar look without having a bank balance to match.

The answer is of course Swarovski Crystals

The History of woman wearing eye-catching jewellery goes back to ancient times when pieces were worn for personal adornment. Influences have come from Asia, jewellery representing status. The word Jewellery itself derived from the word jewel from the french word ‘jouel’ or latin ‘jocale’ meaning plaything!! 1837 Tiffany & Co put the United States on the map in terms of jewellery, Pierre Cartier and later Chanel for the french, Carl Faberge for the Russian Court. In Great Britain it was Liberty as well as in the 60’S Butler and Wilson but a few to mention. These pieces were worn by Princess Grace of Monaco, as well as many celebs and as recent as a Tiara For the Duchess of Cambridge.

Fast forward to the end of the 19th century when Austrian Daniel Swarovski started to cut crystals automatically. They soon became famous in the realm of haute couture, Hollywood celebs and oscar night fashion talk.

Today Swarovski Crystals are as popular as ever with new contempary designs on the high street often based upon Tiffany influences as well as the latest trend of Art Deco and Vintage.But more importantly they are accessible and affordable luxury for us all to possess.

Swarovski Crystals are the very answer to look sophisticated and glamorous to accessorize any outfit. So if you want to become a ‘jocale’ a plaything! without the expense of real diamonds but with the same look try some equally impressive Swarovski Drop Earrings totally guilt free!!!
