” How to raise your hair game, with some of the latest hair trends of the season”…

Your appearance impacts your personal, social and professional life. The more appealing your appearance the more positive you feel.

Jade and I believe, one of the first things people notice is your hair. It frames your face and sets the overall tone for your entire look. Having a good hair day makes you feel happy, confident and more productive.

With fashion ever changing mixing up your look and making it more current is easily achieved by cutting, colouring, highlighting, curling or straightening your hair giving you a fresh new look. A new look, a new you…..

To raise your hair game start with a great cut. An amazing cut will sit well, styled, or not styled. Using the right products and tools will make a world of difference to achieving fabulous hair.

To get that professional, just walked out of the salon feel, discuss your best options with your hairdresser. Key factors include;

  • The best shampoo to suit the texture and style of your hair.
  • Products that will work best prior to blow drying.
  • Which brushes to use.
  • And of course, your finishing products to achieve maximum hold once you have finished styling your hair.

The hair trends we have seen on the runways in Paris, Milan, London and New York for spring/summer 2018 range from big bouncy curls to sleek and straight looks. We are seeing a return to the 60’s.

For those bad hair days if you want a quick fix try an on trend braid, high ponytail, top knot or a messy bun, thank you Meghan Markle.

The head scarf accessory is a huge trend we are seeing all over the runway this season. Think Audrey Hepburn 1960s, the hippie, boho chic or a simple headband scarf style. There is no excuse for bad hair this season.

Remember, first impressions count. Are you having a good hair day?

“What is the latest look in Sunglasses this season?”

Nothing refreshes your summer look like a new pair of specs. A cool pair of shades will not only provide your eyes with essential sun protection, but getting your specs right, can be a make or break to your entire outfit.
This summer we are seeing the retro cat-eye, tinted coloured lenses, funky geometric shapes, round, flat tops, aviators and thin rims.
Jade and I have put together some pics of some of our favourite celeb looks this season.

” What’s the latest must have bag for the season?”

At STYLED BY JADE we love a statement handbag. It’s a crucial accessory to compliment your outfit. With the right bag you can make an impressive style statement.
Choosing a handbag for the right outfit and the right occasion can be overwhelming with so many handbag styles and shapes on offer. It is important to differentiate between a day bag and an evening bag and to correctly coordinate the right bag to the right outfit to avoid a mismatch in styles.
We have put together the ultimate spring/summer handbag trends for all occasions .
This season we are seeing wicker and basket bags, micro bags, metallic bags, snake skin bags, drawstring bags, floral bags, backpacks and of course not to be forgotten the revival of the fanny pack.

Create high drama to your outfit this season with a silky, lightweight floral Kimono. This charming Japanese inspired trend is so chic and feminine.
A kimino adds just the right amount of coverage without causing you to overheat in our hot Aussie sun and provides the perfect amount of sun protection.
Short, long, with long bellowing sleeves, the Kimono can be left open flowing over swimwear, denim shorts and a tee or done up around the waist like a dress. The kimono is the must-have addition to update your summer 2017 wardrobe.

The oversized fashion trend…

This season we are seeing no shortage of the oversized fashion trend in dresses, pants and shirts. This trend is not for everyone and can make you look completely overwhelmed. 

At STYLED BY JADE we recommend creating your oversized statement with one oversized piece per outfit. Oversized garments are not traditionally figure flattering, so pair your oversized piece back with well fitted garments to create balance and a more shapely silhouette keeping your look effortlessly chic.

Let’s take a look at some of our favourite celebrity  looks.

A trend we are loving right now is the deconstructed shirt. A deconstructed shirt is an effortlessly chic button down shirt modernised with a sexy feminine twist.

A modern deconstructed shirt is a staple for this season.  Elaborate oversized sleeves, backless cut-outs, asymmetrical hems, off the shoulder layers, wrap arounds and ruffles are all leading the way in street style fashion.

Team your shirt with denim shorts, a denim skirt or a frayed cigarette leg denim pant.  Add a sneaky heel to glamorise the look or go for a casual sport luxe sneaker.
