Clash of the Prints

Are you ready to get creative with your outfits ladies? If not, get ready because we have a new trend on the horizon in the form of clashing prints. Yes you heard it right; we’re all going crazy for a mash up of prints. Think floral trousers with leopard print shoes or striped tees with animal print trousers, the more outrageous the colours the better.

Take Cheryl Cole who was recently spotted in LA sporting sexy leopard print hot pants along with a floral bra top and colourful printed blazer. On paper this combination sounds hideous, but take a look at the pics and somehow it works!

Anyone can wear this trend; you just need to be clever with your prints. If you’re more pear shaped opt for small, dark prints on the bottom and brighten up your outfit on top by choosing colours or prints that really pop.

If you’re slightly wary of the bold colourful prints, you can wear plain bright clothing and clash the prints in the form of your accessories. Just add a gorgeous pair of animal print or floral shoes and a printed bag. Olivia Palermo works the trend exceptionally well and you too can easily channel her style.

We have a huge range of printed tops and trousers online which are perfect for this crazy trend. This gorgeous Mink Pink leopard Print Blazer for example is exactly what you need to give this trend a go! So start getting creative and have fun with your clothes, it’s the perfect time to try it out!

Australian Love

We’re getting a lot of love for Australian brands here at Lovarni and while their Summer season is drawing to an end ours is only just beginning. We have added a few new Australian brands to the website and since their launch online, they have been extremely popular so now is the time to take a look before they all run out! We have carefully selected labels which cater for everyone’s taste from cool, light wearable fabrics to bold prints and colourful statement pieces.

Take House of Wilde where loose shapes and pastel blush colours make up the collection which is perfect for both Spring and Summer. The label has a very carefree feel to it which makes for a perfect choice for the upcoming festival season. If you have an effortless chic style then this is the label for you.

Mink Pink is another new label which consists of some light, cool styles which are great for layering. These beautiful, comfortable pieces are getting more and more popular here in the UK and we anticipate that this will continue as we move towards next season. With this label you’ll also find some quirky prints and vintage inspired styles which we here at Lovarni are loving right now!

If you want to make a statement then this is the label for you as their collection is full of bold prints and vivid colours. One of our top Fairground pieces is the Cha Cha dress, its bright colour and structured shape is the perfect choice for any Summer parties you have lined up. It’s sure to get you noticed!

Trend: Pretty Pastels

Spring is finally here so now is the perfect time to explore this season’s Pastel trend. From sherbet yellows to sugary pinks, these candy coloured pastels are a great way to sweeten your look. If you are keen to wear colour but find the bold brights too garish, opt for the other side of the spectrum by choosing a pastel tone to soften your look and inject some colour.

Take inspiration from Phillip Lim whose collection offered strong, sharp silhouettes but in soft feminine colours or Ralph Lauren, another designer who embraced the pretty trend, showcasing gorgeous pieces in subtle shades.

One of Lovarni’s newest brands, Mink Pink has clearly been influenced by the pastel trend. The SS12 collection features pretty, feminine blouses and tops in shades of nude and cream. Team these light, delicate tops with dark jeans or leggings to create a contrast.

Another brand featured on the Lovarni website that has also been influenced by the trend is House of Dereon. One style that is proving to be a big hit is the Summer Bandeau dress, featured below. This style is available in a gorgeous powder blue which is one of the most wearable pastel tones.
