WORK IT IN A WHITE SHIRT

White shirt, street style, Et Vous

The white shirt is a must have in every wardrobe. Trends come and go but a classic white shirt is forever, it is a blank canvas of style. Dressed up with a full skirt and heels, or boyfriend jeans and sneakers you can’t go wrong. Every season we get in white shirts that that have a point of difference, whether it is oversized or unique fabrics. Here are some of the ways to wear the white shirt:

  • Dress – A white shirt dress is a great look, with clean lines it can be dressed up with heels or worn causally with sneakers. Our top tip to wearing a white shirt as a dress is don’t just go and get an oversized shirt from your partners wardrobe and put it on as a dress. Make sure the white shirt is designed to be worn as a dress.
  • Jeans – Whether the jeans are fitted or baggy a white shirt teams perfectly with them. You can’t go wrong with a denim and white combination!
  • Skirts – Often worn with a blouse but a crisp white shirt can look just as good and gives a more street style look. Prettied up with a feminine full skirt for the races, or partly tucked into a causal skirt with flats.

NEW SEASON COLOUR REPORT

Fashion Colour Palette 2016

With the new season styles coming in it is always exciting to see how the colour range develops. We showcase a range of designers from around the world so our colours often sway from the typical trending colours, this makes for a unique colour palette that you won’t find anywhere else.

The 2016 Pantone fashion trending colours that we have in store are:

  • Fiesta: A vibrant red/orange which we have splashes of in our Trelise Cooper and Maison Scotch ranges.
  • Iced Coffee: This is an earthy tan that looks fantastic on most skin tones. This colour is prominent in our Elisa Cavaletti and White + Warren ranges plus it can be seen in patterns in the Maison Scotch collection.
  • Snorkel Blue: A shade lighter then navy, we have this colour in Umit Unal, Elisa Cavaletti, Rundholz, Maison Scotch ranges and will be coming in the new Transit Collection. This colour can have a slightly nautical vibe and looks stunning with metallics and statement jewellery.
  • Rose Quartz: A soft and feminine pastel pink. Seen in the Maison Scotch and Umit Unal collections.
  • Lilac Grey: A shade which is neutral but edgy at the same time. Seen in our Umit Unal collection in lovely silks and cotton tops.
  • Green: Unexpected and bold. This colour is in the patterned Trelise Cooper styles and Maison Scotch casual wear.

On top of the trending colours we have a range of black and fresh white styles to compliment the colours. Varying shades of blue from the darkest ink to pale blue tones are prominent. Neutral grey shades in dark charcoal to soft light grey. Plus a range of fabrics and exquisite pattterns/textures that allow you to bring out different tones within the garment.

CHIC TREND: MINIMALISM

Minimal fashion is easy, practical and refined. When thinking about minimalist fashion looks there is often the misconception that it is basic, but minimal style incorporates well tailor and designed pieces, classic looks that often will never go out of style. We associate minimal with “effortless cool” and lets be honest who doesn’t want to look stylish and on trend without even trying. Below is some inspirational images of how to wear this trend and how you can get the look from Et Vous.

HOW TO WEAR: OVERSIZED

Et Vous how to wear oversized

Oversized clothing is so practical, comfortable and can look just as chic and trendy as fitted clothing. One of our major bits of advice to consider is balance, contrast oversized pieces with fitted styles to give your figure shape. Below we have a selection of tips to wearing the oversized look with ease:

  • Balance: As we mentioned previously if you are wearing oversized garments, balance it with fitted styles. For example skinny jeans with an oversized coat and vice versa, a fitted top with loose fit drop crotch pants.
  • Clinch at the waist: To add a bit more shape you can always consider clinching the garment in at the waist. A belt or clip does the trick.
  • Limit yourself: Much like the balance point, don’t try and overdo it with oversized, try and limit it to one (maybe 2) oversized garments worn at once and make that piece the statement.
  • Textures: Experiment with textures, knits can be heavier and stiffer, where a chiffon top is loose fitted and flowing.
  • Heels: Adding a pair of heels can not only dress up an outfit but when wearing oversized it gives the illusion of height to balance out the extra fabric in other areas.
  • Lower it: While a lot of emphasis seems to be on wearing oversized on the top half, it can look just as great on the bottom half as well with a pair of drop crotch pants, wide leg pants or boyfriend jeans.
  • Experiment: Try on different outfits and see what you feel comfortable in. What one person feels comfortable in may not be comfortable for someone else. You will be surprised what works.

MILITARY FASHION

One of the trends that never goes out of style is the military look. Belted coats and structured jackets with shades of olive green and black, classic pieces that can be worn for a life time. Here at Et Vous we are big fans of the military look as it is versatile and can be worn casually or dressed up. This season has seen some unique twists on the military influence to include jumpsuits and belted jackets. Below are some inspirational images and a selection of our military style pieces.
