Celeb Looks and Designer Trends To Follow This Summer from Simons.ca

Monday, May 02, 2016 Simone - Your Style Architect 2 Comments

Hi everyone,

If you haven't noticed already, I had just put together a brand new Look & Feel for my blog. After 4 years, I figured it needed a little sprucing up for Summer 2016!

So to kick off and in celebration of a brand new " Simone - Your Style Architect", let me share with you a new multi label designer online store I discovered this week. Although they are canadian based but they DO offer shipping to the USA where many of you guys are from, so it is a perfect site to check out.

Simons.ca to me, is pretty much similar to ASOS.com where they offer a range of high end designer wear but also current season trending items on a lower budget for those who love to get the look for less. Besides their Women's collections, they also cover Men's and Home / Lifestyle items which was such a treat knowing you can get beautiful bedding sets, cushions and even decorative items like candle holders and items to dress up your kids' rooms.

Of course, my main focus was checking out the Women's collection more than anything else. Besides top designer labels such as Diane Von Fursternberg, Chloe, Vivienne Westwood, Michael Kors etc just to name a few, they also carry mid range brands from all over the world. So you are bound to find something to fit your budget. And like all amazing and successful online stores, they now carry a range of products and items under their own private label " Simons".

So, what  better way then to put together looks for you - mix and matching some of their items that caught my eye whilst surfing through their site. I am indeed getting excited about these looks, just unfortunate that being based in Hong Kong, they do not ship internationally as far as I know, but it won't hurt to drop them an email to find out more.

I was inspired by this classic black and white jumpsuit with a sexy halter top to put together this first Look. The comfort of those loose flowing palazzo pants makes this an outfit you can dress up or down. For me, I always believe that when you buy an item it needs to take you places. Not just working on a single look. So I styled this jumpsuit smart casual with beautiful large round rim sunglasses, and continued the bohemian theme with drop real feather earrings and accentuating the 2 tone outfit with these gorgeous metallic sandals!

If jumpsuits is your thing, here is another popular favourite style for this season. Blending culottes and jumpsuits into one.

Fluid Culotte Jumper

I love shirtdresses especially for Summer as it's so quick to get up and go and yet with different accessories, it again allows you room to play with your looks. A great travel item as well. This linen shirtdress in a pastel pink hue just called out to me. The sleeveless style was pretty with a twist of the higher neckline. No Summer wardrobe is complete without a pair of leather sandals and these Steve Madden ones are puuuurrrfect!

Kept accessories to the brown / gold tone hue and a simple clutch would finish off this look. All nice and simple yet understated elegance. A great weekend outfit or one for dress down Fridays in the office.

Vanessa Wu Metallic Sandals // Anne Cole Monochrome High Neck One Piece Swimsuit

Well, I don't know about you but I obviously prefer one piece swimsuits as opposed to bikini wear simply because I am so self conscious of my bulging waistline. Hey look - we are all not perfect so we need to choose the right items to suit our figures and that will accentuate our best assets and hide our flaws! ha ha ha....

Loving this beautiful floral swimsuit and figured a nice beach dress, metallic espadrilles and a beautiful sunhat would make it the perfect look to take you out on those fab summer beach holidays!

Here are also some other styles I was drawn to in their store :

Michael Kors Jewel Logo Bandeau One Piece Swimsuit

Simons Scalloped Pique Balconette One Piece Swimsuit

La Blanca Sahara Drape Halther One Piece Swimsuit

There are just so many items that fit my budget on Simons.ca, and here are some of Summer's hot trending items you may wish to consider when you head over to Simons.ca to put together your Summer Wardrobe.

Tassel Belt Tunic Dress

Wavy Lace Dress

Of course no outfit is complete without that perfect handbag to throw your stuff in. Loving these styles.

Nioulargo Hobo Bag

Italian Leather Sleek Saddles Bag

Which of the above would you consider getting? Love to hear from you in the comments below!
