Luxe Festival Fashion
When I first viewed the this collection my immediate reaction was “I could wear all of this to Port Eliot”. Then I remembered that there was no Port Eliot this year. The range is definitely festival luxe and I love it all. Maybe I could save it for next year!!
I have picked a small capsule wardrobe to highlight the pieces and the only things I would need to add are denim shorts and jeans.
The mainstay of the collection is the Khaki Army Jacket, all other items will look good with it. I can see it teamed with shorts and a t, jeans and a shirt, as cover up with the maxi’s, it is a versatile piece.
The jersey items like the t shirts shown have a super luxe feel, you will feel super cosseted when the weather is not what you hoped for.
The price point for this collection is excellent, the jacket is the most expensive at £148, it isn’t claiming to be cheap but it is offering people a luxe alternative to their festival style favourites.

SS13 the Fennwright way
Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, the new look Fenn Wright Manson has definitely made an impression on me. You can take any piece and make it your own no matter how young or old you are.
The philosophy of the team is ageless style, share it with your Mum, your Daughter or your Grandmother, just add your own twist.
My particular favourite is the Sophia Jacket, I will be wearing mine with either boyfriend jeans & Acne boots or skinny jeans & pointy toe pumps. This jacket is the only statement any outfit needs so keep it simple.
The Marree Jumpsuit is another fantastic piece, team it with gold sandals and a gorgeous tan for a simple but glamorous outfit. This jumpsuit will suit anybody and it suitable for all occasions.
Summer weddings are always tricky, most of us like a sleeve and we don’t want to show to much flesh. Elegance is always the key, the dress cannot shout “look at me”. The Felice Lace Dress hits all the right notes, just add simple shoes and accessories and you are good to go. This piece will come out of the wardrobe on numerous occasions and certainly can’t be dated.
I am always a fan of anything blue, it is almost an obsession! This Bella Top therefore caught my eye. A very simple top with endless outfit options, jeans, shorts, skirts, you will wear it again and again. Pictured here with slim Harper Trousers.
For a really simple contemporary outfit try this one, Tessa Cardigan, Elisa Jumpers and Naples Jeans. Each piece is going to work with so many other pieces you already have in the wardrobe. I would style the jeans with ankle boots (rolled up a little) a simple tank and the cardigan, but the possibilities are endless with this outfit.
