Five things you need to own NOW

We’re feeling patriotic at Gimmefashion this week, hence the emerald splash. Kermit the frog himself, didn’t think it was so easy being green, but then again he was rocking the look head to toe (overkill). We find that little touches of the hue are a much better proposition.

the rings

Called the  “Stone of Successful Love,” the emerald reportedly “opens and nurtures the heart and the Heart Chakra and its soothing energy  embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love” according to the crystal vaults website. That’s us sold then. Mo muse have some beautiful rose gold pieces that are infinitely stackable so pile them on and wait for the love to flow into your life. 285 and 850

the shirt

if you are having second thoughts about donning denim, a linen shirt will offer you the same off duty laid back look, while looking a little smarter. Monsoon have some lovely key pieces for SS17, the old faithful embroidery and lace influences are still there, but in addition there are some neat threads for your capsule collection.

the trousers

The second skin trend is set to continue. If you can’t afford/ don’t want to invest in the real deal, a pair of fun leather look leggings will do the job. Try before you buy though, an ankle skimming pair is the new length to sport. no exceptions.

the sunnies

Tigers are tops for homewares but they can turn up the odd gem on the fashion stakes too. These toirtoise shell glasses are totally on trend.

the bag

Folli follie are a vibrant brand dedicated ‘to bring to light the brightest, most positive and most attractive side of women.’ We are fully on board with this mission statement and have chosen this green bag as the pick of the crop.

the runners

Gimme 5 plus one extra for luck, we’ve thrown another item on to the list for Paddy’s day. These high tops from adidas are on sale. Box fresh and squeaky clean! Wear them at your peril though as they have to be kept ultra white or they lose their fashion value. No way around it –  that’s the looks babz.
