How To Style Your Look Sporty This Summer...
.
Mixing styles is uber importante' here to escape looking like your heading out to tread the pavement. Think lace pencil skirts with a casual sporty tee and leather kicks for an everyday current look. Vogue.com's Senior fashion editor, Jorden Bickham talks about mixing styles with a sports shoe in her Spring 14 blog on top trends.
She says 'I love a heavy shoe - it seems to balance out the proportions of my look. I am rarely seen in anything flirty or girly, but with such a graphic, heavy shoe, a pretty skirt seems to fit the bill.
.
Wearing your track shoes like the celebs...You would have seen it in all the magazines, the models and the celebs are throwing on their Nikes with their cutesy frocks and looking damn good. But tread carefully, unless you are confident in putting your style together I would avoid this as it takes the right eye and dress combo to pull this look off successfully...We love these street style pics of people who have nailed it!

Find your main item of excitement and then dress it down to get your sporty 'on the go' look, Try a summer frock dressed down with bold coloured shoes and a little visor or dressy lace with monochrome or bright silver metallic to give it a sharp edge.
Remember that this season's florals are to be worn with an edge, It's all about taking the qualities that everyone expects from florals and turning them on their head. Think about wearing your florals loud and proud this season teaming them back with black, mesh or leather.

Colour Blocking - It's summer, be bold, embrace the clash! their are no rules here except for no going halfway! the bolder the better your outfit will look. If you haven't seen it yet, check out our "Language of Colour" blog to find out which colours make you feel vibrant and happy or calm and thoughtful..

Bring your make up and hair into the look. This style won't work without the right details to set it off. Try sleek straight hair back into a pony or be adventurous with a fishtail braid. If in doubt, keep it simple with straight and manicured or curly and wild - No-where in between. At our finishing touches workshop Melissa from Bella Vi raved about their new illuminizer, it gives a healthy youthful glow to any lackluster skin and creates that freshness to your face. She also suggested a hot orange lip as the trend of the season.
.
 What do you think of this new look?  I imagine many excited women at the prospect of being on trend and comfortable at the same time!
