The Top Trends on Main Street
If there’s one thing for sure, it’s that Tilda shoppers love to keep their pleasures simple. Shopping and bubbles – the perfect combo. On May 1 Tilda celebrated the onslaught of winter (ironically the sun was shining) with a bit of a party day, and lovely ladies meandered the boutique, glass in hand. High winter fashion has arrived, and the rails are groaning with delicious combinations.
Want, love, lust at Tilda. Looks we adore this week in store.
Shimmer and Shine
Who would have thought sequins could be sooooo versatile? They have been something of a wardrobe staple for a while now, but if you thought they had done their dash, then think again. If anything they are simply getting into their groove, and have perfected an enviable ability to straddle the rift between black tie and day wear. This sequined combo by Coop sums up their changeability to perfection; together with heels the top and skirt make a super smart sexy evening wear outfit, however, split them up, add a casual jacket, boots or pumps – and you are ready for anything!
Another look that has morphed to cover a spectrum of styles is comfy casual. Now we’re not talking active wear here, we’re talking cotton jersey - the fast food of haute couture. While our heads may say that’s totally not me, our hearts say do it, and do it now. This style covers it all – travel chic, school drop off chic and just plain can’t be bothered to pour myself into skinny jeans Sunday morning chic. The clever thing about these ensemble pieces is that they have the ability to be snuck nicely into lots of smart outfit combinations without anyone noticing just how disgustingly comfortable they are.
In the Pink
There’s so much to love about the rosy glow that is upon us. Pink is big news – there’s talk about it being the colour of the millennial, but hey, most of us have flirted with the joys of this bad boy for years. Because it’s a colour that covers all bases, the looks that can be created with it are for all ages and tastes. If you’ve got the abs for the Coop Crop It Like It’s Hot singlet, then double up with pink jeans, or be in vogue and pick the red. If that’s too risqué, then layer it under a sloppy slash neck top. There are a plethora of pink dresses – from a velvet floral that is bang on trend, to a diaphanous shift with a feature sleeve to update a classic style.
There’s no missing the penchant for embroidery that’s hit this season. It’s everywhere, and there are some key pieces that Tilda is absolutely loving. The slightly oversized Ink Denim Daze jacket has more than a touch of ‘80s about it, while its partner in crime, the Coop Give Me Your Hand jacket has changed up the pace with an embroidered panel. Flying off the shelves are the embroidered boxy style Ink Jumpers which are stunning with plain pants or skirt. A personal favourite are the Ink sweatshirts with beautiful feature arm detail… these are landing firmly in the ‘gotta have it’ pile….
