Falling in love with Autumn


Thu 21 Aug 2014


   

It maybe the end of Summer nights, BBQ’s and Pimms O’clock but it also has to be one of the most exciting times of the year for fashion! Autumn brings the beginning of new boot shopping, coat investing and putting together our new season wish-lists. As soon as the September issue of Vogue landed on our desks we leaped to check out all of the glamorous new trends we would be sporting, and without fail, Lipsy have the catwalk looks covered.

The Lipsy colour palette for the new season incorporates rich darks of black, moody grey and ox blood red with complementary highlights of silver grey and blush pink. The introduction of inkwell tones, navy hues, layered with ultra marines was inspired by these being the strongest colours to come through the A/W 14 runway shows. These fresh hues have been included into dresses, jumpsuits and separates.

Tuxedo style dressing and sharp modern tailoring is a key catwalk look and can be seen in both tailored two piece suits as well as being integrated into dress and jumpsuit designs.

The key fabrications are a mixture of satin, chiffon, PU and luxe faux furs. Lace has to be the dominate fabric of the season and has been reworked and updated with lace on nude mesh styles to give the impression of lots of skin whilst still remaining ultra elegant.

The jacket and coat selection is better and bigger then ever with perfect work to weekend parkas and trenches. As well as new season shapes such as the long line biker and the texture mix wrap front coat. Finally, evening style faux furs in candy pop shades will bring instant film star charm to your party look.

The cold has never looked more stylish!

Sports day luxe at Lipsy


Fri 25 Jul 2014

This week we finally got to enjoy the sensational weather that we’re have having by escaping the office early and heading to the picturesque Regents Park in London’s West End.

 

It was a super fun and typically British sports day for the entire Lipsy crew. We were separated into colour coordinated teams, naturally the PR girls were pink, competing in races and games including the classic egg and spoon and coconut shy.

The PR girls were thankfully joined by a couple of male members of staff who literally threw us to victory, scoring the highest in the welly throwing competition.

To celebrate we headed over to the mouth watering picnic for a glass of strawberry cider, Carluccios pizza and a traditional pick and mix selection.

The calories we burnt were unfortunately soon gained back.

Our Top 3 Summer Swimwear Sets to Suit Your Style


Thu 17 Jul 2014

Hands up, who’s going on holiday this Summer? We are! Ibiza here we come! But first, we need some seriously sassy swimwear.

We can’t decide between bikinis, swimsuits and monokinis. And what’s more there’s a whole load of accessories and kimonos to add that extra personal style to our outfits!

Feeling as bewildered as us when it comes to holiday shopping?

Fear not! Here are our top 3 swimwear outfit ideas to make sure you look like a sizzling Summer goddess by that pool.

1. The Bikini:

The ultimate swimwear essential. Whether it’s plain, bright or patterned this is defo an item that needs to be packed in your suitcase.  Team with a classic wedge, earrings and kimono for the ultimate beach goddess look. If you’re feeling a bit bolder, go for a pretty print or go for a textured set. Buying more than one bikini set gives you the ability to mix and match pieces to create whole new outfits. The world is your oyster!


2. The Swimsuit:

This classic Summer one-piece has recently had a makeover with lots of fashionistas now opting for fresh prints and varied shapes. We love this bright floral piece, perfect with bold lips and piled-on jewels! If you want to add an extra edge to your outfit then we’ve got just the thing. This mesh cover up will be sure to give your swimsuit a whole new look.


3. The Monokini:

With this statement piece you can really make heads turn wherever you go. These come in so many shapes and patterns you’ll be spoilt for choice! Cover it up for Summer evenings by the pool with an embellished kaftan and if you’re going to add some accessories then you really need something simple yet effective like this Lipsy Snake Ring – you want the focus to be on your swimsuit after all! You just need to add some classic heels and voila! Go get ‘em girl!
