Who says you need to spend a lot on your summer wardrobe? Here are 5 on-trend items under $30 available on The Peacock Parade and the best part is that we’ll ship them right to your door!
Notice a lot of midriff lately? That’s because cropped tops are all the rage. But before you whip out your ’90s tops, bare in mind the style nowadays is slightly less cropped than its predecessor. Ideally, the exposure range you want is from a sliver to 2 inches (give or take!)
Deck yourself out with colourful arm candy. Mix and match bright bangles with bracelets of different shapes and sizes. This will add some interest to any outfit.
Shorts are the ultimate go-to for summer comfort, so why not opt for a fun, patterned pair? Perfect for walking the dog or lounging at a cottage, you’ll love making this small investment.
A sophisticated, textured white skirt is just what the fashion doctor ordered. Pair it with an all-ivory upper half or mix with summery shades.
If you’ve been wondering what’s “in” for shoes this spring/summer, then you’ve come to the right place. While nothing ever really goes “out”, since every type of shoe was represented during the international fashion weeks, there are some major trends you might want to consider for your feet. For many, myself included, shoes are a weakness and you can never have too many pairs!
The gladiator sandal, seen here at Derek Lam, is back in full force. From high-knee versions to classic ankle, the gladiator sandal is sexy and dramatic. The sandals are a major focal point, so it’s wise to play down your overall outfit. Celebrities like Rita Ora, Kourtney Kardashian and Selena Gomez have all been spotted wearing them!
Shoes with ankle straps are all the rage at the moment. Part 1940s with a dash of modern, there’s an ankle strap on shoes from casual to dressy. The Christian Dior shoes seen here, fuse luxe with sporty elements. While ankle straps are adorable, consider how they will look on you personally. If you have larger ankles or a short leg, take time choosing the right one for you.
Designers like Anna Sui and Jil Sander showcased metallic menswear-inspired shoes. Gold, silver, bronze and hues in between were wildly popular during fashion weeks. Metallic brogues and oxfords look incredible with a feminine dress or cropped pant.
Thick, stacked heels made a huge impression on the international runways this year, while stilettos and pin-thin heels took a backseat. We’re not complaining. These shoes are easy to walk in, look amazing and won’t get caught in sewer grates!
Shoes and sandals with straps were also a popular runway choice. Slightly similar to the gladiator sandal, these shoes ooze sex appeal because of their bondage-inspired appearance.
If you’ve been following The Peacock Parade sales this week, you’ll notice a very fashionable theme. High-end labels like Gucci, Valentino, DSquared2 and 55DSL are currently available without the traditionally steep price that comes with them. Handbags to clothing to fabulous sunnies, The Peacock Parade has you covered.
Treat yourself, or rather, treat yo’self to some serious luxe. We’re coveting these fabulous shades by Yves Saint Laurent and Valentino. With the sun getting extra strong, it’s important to protect your eyes and designer frames never hurt anybody.
These Gucci handbags are statement pieces. They will never go out of style and will cause serious envy among your friends. Who doesn’t want that?
White summer wear is a not-so-subtle trend happening right now. Starlets from Gwyneth Paltrow to Zoe Saldana have opted to go all white and now it’s your time! Opt for this StyleStalker dress or A Grecco shift.
Item of the moment: Frends Headphones. These headphones take cool to a whole other level.
