Statement Accessories- Animal Skin
SUNSHINE yellow is undoubtedly one of the colours of the new season, if you’re not brave enough to don the colour top to toe this statement leather and pony skin shopper from ASOS (37.50 in the sale) is a great stand out piece and definitely on my wish list! I love a good animal print (always faux, of course) and once again luxe animal prints were all over the catwalk. Although this season designers favoured snake like prints I adore these fun Dalmation print ankle boots from River Island and are are great accent to liven up a plain outfit. But remember only one animal piece at a time please girls, no one wants to look like snooki!

Asos Premium Colored Pony Shopper
As the countdown to the Olympics continues.. only 197 days to go! the Sport Luxe trend has returned to the catwalks. This season’s interpretations demonstrate that clean lines and summer brights are major trends for SS12. This year’s take is a more grown up version, with even ‘Queen of the Pencil Skirt’, VB showing a luxe version of the lowly hoody and other nods to the trend, with racer front fitted tops and pvc caps. Few do the trend better than Alexander Wang, although his mesh vests and bombers layered over neon, and chevron striped leggings are not for the faint hearted! Alternatively for a more subtle nod to the trend, worn as separates or together this recession friendly skirt suit from ASOS will give you fashion kudos for the season ahead.
