With summer upon us and my wardrobe cheerfully filled with beautiful bright colours and bold patterned prints I decided that it was time to add a few black classics to complete my fashion overhaul. Cue FemmeLuxe Finery as I step over to the dark side!
I’m feeling some epic The Matrix movie nostalgia here when I searched for some new high-waisted skirts to add to my collection. Whilst mini skirts are undoubtedly sexy and sassy, there’s something seductively sophisticated about a high-waisted skirt with a thigh split that I’m totally drawn to.
Add to the mix that this belted beauty is made from black PU and shimmers and shines like a Gothic goddess and it’s a win win situation all round! Mysterious, powerful and versatile, a piece of clothing that every confident woman should certainly own at least once in life.
Next up is my penchant for bodysuits and I love how they’re so handy for this time of year. Wether you rock just a bodysuit and heels to a glamourous pool party on holiday, or team it with some skinny jeans or a contrasting colour miniskirt, this beautiful faux leather bodysuit has totally stolen my heart.
Again the attention to detail is a total show stealer here with a luxuriously playful shine to the fabric, confident open shoulders, a sexy exposed back and the feminine touch of a pretty bow between the bust; I can’t help but smile when I wear this and it’s fits like a glove.
Although this next piece is dark brown and not black, I can never say no to bodycon dresses because I love the way they hold onto curves. Following the rule of breast or legs on show, this long sleeve number slims down my top half whilst elongating my legs, appearing to take a few pounds off of my frame in an instant.
Drawing the attention down to my ankles whilst creating and covering killer curves is the ideal combination of sophistication and sex appeal. Teamed with a bold necklace and statement watch this dress is perfect for every evening engagement across the season.
Finally, after all of that sass I thought I would finish up my latest haul with one of my go-to comforting clothing; you’ve guessed it, I’m hooked on shirt-dresses! I always see celebs rocking these bad boys on cloudy days with either a pair of trainers or knee high boots and I love the boyfriend-esque vibe that it creates.
Much like seeing the classic naked-girl-in-a-mans-white-suit-shirt, this oversized cut yet feminine design screams juxtaposition that really works. And of course the hot galactic lips print on the front is something I had to have to boost my Kiss collection.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this haul and have taken some inspiration to try some new style ideas yourself. If anything, I highly recommend trying the high-waisted skirt trend because it’s something I’m seriously enjoying right now.
As always my darlings, be brave, be bold and continue to experiment with fashion and new styles. What suited us in our teens we may very well have grown out of as adults and what surprised us several seasons ago could easily become our latest obsession of tomorrow!
