Mud, music & frolicking around in a field…yes, the festival season is upon us. Festivals are no longer about embracing your inner grime, where people used to wear their mud with pride, and that is thanks to Kate, Sienna & Gwyneth, who show up backstage year after year looking immaculately stylish!

However you choose to take part this summer, make sure you look fabulous!

The new favourite… Paige ‘s Verdugo

Monday, June 21st, 2010

 

Celebs have been out in force this season wearing their newest favourite jeans, the Verdugo Legging from Paige, and I don’t blame them! This lightweight, super stretchy denim has 4-way stretch & perfectly positioned pockets, making them incredibly flattering, not to mention amazingly comfortable. On, they look just like a skinny jean, but to the wearer, they feel like they were made-to-measure!

 

Dressed up or down they look fabulous, and luckily, Trilogy offer them in an array of colours!

Wimbledon Whites

Wimbledon-fashion-spectat-002

Thought Wimbledon was all about the tennis? Think again! The clothes are the real stars of the show (or at least come a close 2nd!). With Serena Williams arriving on centre court in the most, erh, unusual tennis attire and Roger Federer wearing custom designed cardigans to his matches; fashion at Wimbledon becomes even more exciting than a Murray/Federer final!

 

Wimbledon is the oldest & most prestigious tennis tournament in the world and has become a British institution. So this year, channel your inner Brit and wear your whites with pride!

 My Wimbledon picks:

 

J Brand 7/8ths Crop in White, which are super flattering & elegant, teamed with Malene Birger Oversized cream top (Which is now on sale in-store!) & wedges. Simple.

W3

For a smarter look: Tibi strapless floral dress is perfect, team with nude shoes & this gorgeous Tibi Blazer for a Chic & summery look that is perfect for any summer event! (Both available in-store & now on sale, BARGIN!)

Now all you have to do is relax, Sip some Pimms, munch on some strawberries & cream and of course enjoy the tennis.. Bliss.

This season all our favourite celebs are sporting the relaxed utilitarian look. Out with the old traditional stiff masculine cargo’s, and in with the updated version, which is slimmer, softer & incredibly flattering. This simple & sexy look can take you anywhere!

To dress up, team with glamorous heels, a sparkly silk top, blazer & statement jewellery.

We are loving these gorgeous J Brand Houlihan’s in Vintage Navy (Exclusive to Trilogy), which have been flying out of our stores! Shown above with Parker beaded silk top & Fiona Paxton necklace, available in-store.

For everyday, team with flats, a jersey tee & printed scarf – Simple!

The Current Elliott Captains trouser is super soft and slim on the leg which makes it very flattering. Shown above with Splendid white tee, Erfurt scarf & Trilogy leather belt, all available in-store.

After waiting for what feels like a lifetime, the second SATC movie has finally hit cinemas.

Blog_1

I don’t think there is a woman in the western world that has escaped SATC fever at some point over the years. Since the programmes release in 1998 up to the release of the greatly anticipated second movie this week, our four favourite New Yorkers have made us laugh, cry and cringe, with their experiences in life & love, not to mention their fashion choices! But which character’s style best sums you up….

 

Carrie Bradshaw

“I’m looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t live without love.”
