Colours are climbing out of the wardrobes and prints are starting to pop… That’s right it’s spring in the ‘Kong! Hide away those drab old navys and blacks for now, because this season is all about the bold and beautiful. Sassy Editor Lauren and I snuck away from the office to have a dress up date at Karen Millen. We tried on a few looks that are sure to put some zing in your spring! Here are our top picks for what’s in stock now…
The Go Anywhere Dress
Every HK lady knows that she needs a dress that can take her from the office to the after hours scene with ease. These two options do just that. The colour block number Lauren is sporting works great with a neutral pump for the office, but switch it out to a fun neon orange stiletto sandal, trade that big bag in for a clutch and she can meet for girly catch up drinks in a snap. All my jungle dress needs is a cropped jacket and a pump to take it to work. Then you can work it out Beyonce style with a change of the accessories! Both dresses would also work for weekend affairs with cute sandals and a messy ponytail. Now that’s a lot of fun from your funds!
Double Up on the Trends
Why stop with just one on-trend piece? Double up on the look to really make a statement. I tried the lace on lace, which works wonders when stacked with a simple top. Did you see our Trend Watch about Lace here? Lauren looks fantastic in a matching floral top and pants combo. Wear them together to get the romper effect then break them apart for even more wear ability. She checks off two of our top trends to try with this look – pastels and coordinates (check out our spring trends to try here). How very sassy!
For the Formal Affairs
If April showers bring May flowers then we all know what May flowers bring… weddings! Stop by Karen Millen to grab your gown for all the wedded bliss to come. For the cocktail scene you can try this pleated poppy-hued dress that Lauren is wearing. And when the invite arrives for the nighttime nuptials you know you can impress with this icy blue stunner.
Grab this bejewelled clutch and some knockout rhinestone pumps and you are ready to rock it on the dance floor all night long!
Karen Millen also stocks a fabulous array of jewels, bags, and shoes, so you can complete your look head to toe in this one-stop shop.
Maybe you need an outfit for a specific event or just want a little refresher in the closet? Either way, Karen Millen is guaranteed to put some spring in your step! Happy shopping!
