A very warm welcome to the Sugahfix gang to Sinead Martin. Sinead is an independent stylist for Stella and Dot, and will be a regular contributor with us too!
In a blink of the eye the excitement and promise of those all-too-short summer months have disappeared and we’re reaching for the oversized jumper and cosy fires of home.
But don’t hit the hibernation trail just yet. Autumn is truly one of the most exciting times to refresh the wardrobe and inject some colour and texture – and this time around it’s all about those rampant reds.
I for one have my eye firmly on the double delight of two uber-cool nights at the unmissable West Coast Cooler Belfast Fashion week at Belfast Cathedral on October 26 and 27 to break out that LRD (That’s little red dress readers!)
Fashion week, fronted by the ever-stylish Cathy Martin, is one of my favourite times of year. I’ll be putting my own diamond-encrusted slant on the night by displaying my Stella and Dot jewellery range for fashionistas who are attending the event. Please come and say ‘Hi’ on the night and check out the bling!
I’ll be sneaking off at regular intervals to eye up the delights of the catwalk shows with the opening night featuring the best of Northern Ireland’s designer and boutique stores – namely Jourdan, Blush and Spoilt Belle.
The high streets and on-line fashion houses take centre stage on October 27 with my own personal favourite Karen Millen, the affordable yet irresistible BooHoo and old favourite French Connection among the delights on show.
Call me biased, but autumn and winter is prime time for some sparkles and this season is all about accessorising
Here’s the skinny for AW17: As much as I love a pair of killer heels it’s all about the statement earrings these days.
Those insta-selfies have been a real game changer with all eyes on your top half. With a pair of dazzling chandeliers just watch those likes explode! No filter needed, girls!
Top designers are indulging us with vibrant colours that are best worn head-to-toe with the fanfare of feathers, fluff and frills being lavished upon every item imaginable. There’s no shortage of fun being had in design circles.
Looking for a last-minute style pick me up before you hit the town? Pull on that pair of loud tights buried at the back of the wardrobe to bring your look into the here and now.
Happy styling girls!
