Today I’m excited to share part one of my favourite summer shoe and handbag trends from Dune London, featuring mouthwatering pieces, perfect for a bright and happy mood!
Summer 2014 is all about adding fun to your look with bold accessories, splashed in citrus tones, bright blues and modern pinks!
Citron Pop is a refreshed take on the colour block trend that’s as predominately ‘summer” as florals.
If you’re scared of going too colourful in your clothing, a bold, bright bag or pair of sexy heels can make your look current, without taking you too far out of your comfort zone.
Stilettos, flats, block heels and bags are all making a statement and these are just some of the delicious items from Dune London!
Ever since I bought my blue DUNE “Dinky” bag, I can’t get enough of this brand! Their bags (and shoes) are fantastic quality and very on trend. Every time I take my Dinky out, I get tons of compliments.
So now I’ve got my eye set on more, more, more!
I’m putting the Darbs handbag on my Christmas wishlist this year! She’s such a beaut! Darbs, I’d say is one of Dune’s iconic bag styles, that they “re-work” into the current season trends. And this hot colour blocked option is such a beautiful piece!
It can be worn as a casual crossbody bag, with a white tee and a pair of jeans, or dressed up and used as a fabulous summer evening bag, carried by the elegant top handle.
One bag, so many ways to wear it! Now that’s what I call an investment!
Definitely a bag to check out (but please leave one for me :)). You can find these at Dune London flagship stores at Sandton City, Centurion Mall, Canal Walk, Rosebank Mall (new) or Highveld Mall (new), as well as selected Edgars stores nationwide.
Tips to Colour Block Your Style in 2014
- Level 1 – If you’re afraid of colour blocking, bags and shoes are your friends! Choose one statement piece and work it into your existing wardrobe. You’ll get so many compliments on your colour blocked Dune bag or shoes, that I’m pretty certain you’ll become more daring with colour to move onto the next level.
- Level 2 – Try monochromatic colour blocking by picking one colour and putting an outfit together using different shades and hues of the same colour.
- Level 3 – Once you’ve found your love for colour, you’re ready to go all out! Look toward the colour wheel as your guide. Either pick out complimentary tones by pairing colours that are opposite each other on the colour wheel. For example; blue and yellow or orange and green. Or try basing your colour selection using two to three shades that lie next to each other on the colour wheel. For example; blue and green or orange and pink.
