Idle Lane

Dancer, model and blogger Danielle Peazer of IdleLane.com is our September Style Blogger Council member ready to get judging your style in the fashionista style stakes this month! Find out about what trends she’ll be rocking this season, which may pop-megastar is following her on Twitter and what she thinks makes people stand out from the crowd, to see if you can catch her eye on the Shopcade app!

What’s on your shopping list this season?

Moving into A/W I’m on the look out for cosy knitwear, it’s so vital when the weather gets colder!

What do you think is the thing that makes people’s style really stand out?

I think people’s style stands out when they’re truly comfortable in what they’re wearing and are happy in their outfit. It’s an added confidence that comes naturally.

What trends, if any are you loving this season?

I’ve loved the amount of lace overlays that have been on trend. I’ve got a few pieces and they always catch my eye when I’m out shopping.

Who are your fave designers?

I love Reformation and Sandro but for high end designers as well as Saint Laurent, Givenchy and Burberry for their leather jackets!

Best high street brands?

I’m a massive fan of Zara and Topshop. I also love Monki and love to shop online at Missguided and Asos.

Whose style do you admire?

I love Ashley Madekwe’s style and Naya Riviera’s sharp look that she always has. I love Vanessa Hudgens and wish I could pull off the boho look as well as she does!

Have you ever had a fashion faux pas?

I’ve had a few yeah! I used to own this faux fur leopard print coat that didn’t suit me at all but I tried to make it work – I looked terrible!

What’s your favourite piece in your wardrobe atm?

I recently bought a linen mac from Zara. It’s calf length and I loved it so much in beige that I bought the exact same one in black!

What item could you not live without? Fashion/Beauty item…

I couldn’t live without my Mac lip conditioner – it’s better than Vaseline but not as sticky as lip gloss. And it comes in a few different shades too.

Nicole x Missguided Collection Lands at Shopcade

OK guys, take a deep breath, count to ten and then exhale because the mother of all fashion collaborations has landed here on Shopcade. That’s right, Nicole x Missguided is now live and ready to shop!

We seriously couldn’t be more excited if we tried; Missguided and Nicole are a match made in heaven, with a strong collection that clearly has Nicole’s signature style stamped all over it.

Promo shots previewing the collection were shot on location in Los Angeles, with a very sexy Nicole modelling every outfit from her self-designed range, created in partnership with the design team at Missguided.

 

 

The debut 30 piece collection features distinctive, sports-inspired jumpsuits, directional dresses with cut-away detailing and dramatic mesh-contrast crops and bodysuits – all in a striking monochromatic and ’colour of the season’ cobalt blue palette.

Other pieces we are crushing on from the collection include the uber cool sexy leatherette biker pants and the sophisticated block colour long sleeved dress.

However, if you are looking to purchase just the one standout piece, it’s got to be the cross cutaway leather and fabric jumpsuit; seriously sizzling, this will be on many a girl’s wishlist this season, mark our words.

Prices range from £15 – £50, so there is something for everyone to shop. Damn, you’re good, Missguided 😉

 

Psst! Want to see a sneaky peek behind the scenes? Of course you do! Check out the lovely Nicole partaking in a Q&A about the collection. Trust us, you do not want to miss what a bish is!







Lists We Love: Faux Fur

In the second of our curator specials, Yuen Lim gives us the lowdown on faux fur this season. With celebs like Fearne Cotton channeling this trend, we reckon it’s here to stay.

Over to you, Yuen…

 

Put aside that coat or jacket – faux fur is a trend that is taking the winter season by storm. What I love about this trend is that it makes a statement on its own and keeps you warm – what more can you want?!

Either go subtle with hints of faux fur on your outer wear, or go all out with whole faux fur gilets or vests. The best part about this trend is that you can simply throw it on for a luxurious, couture look without trying very hard at all. That’s your lazy day sorted! Oh and, no animals were harmed in the process 😉

Whilst creating my Faux Fur list on Shopcade, I was thinking about ways to incorporate something unique into my wardrobe or closet that is still season appropriate. Of course, the perfect addition was something that is out of the ordinary, puts you as the center of attention and most importantly, prevents you from getting frostbite.

With the faux fur trend, it may not seem like it, but it is in actual fact, super versatile. You can style it two ways – either keep it simple and minimal for a casual outing, or as a cover up over a glittery, glamorous party dress.

How to Wear: Jumpsuits

The jury is no longer out… Jumpsuits are the outfit du jour this season! The humble dress has been replaced in the fashionista’s hearts and wardrobes by the versatile jumpsuit.

Jumpsuits (the most acceptable form of onesie in public, natch) can be worn so many different ways, styled up or down for any occasion which is why we are seriously lurvin’ it right now.

Still not sure it can match up to the faithful party dress? Well, let us educate you! We’ve taken three different jumpsuits and shown you how to style each of them to hit the right style notes this season.

Anyway we digress, seeing as it is Friday it’s time to honour another one of our lovely curators in or lists we love. This week, we are totally crushing on Laura Seed’s Snow White list.

Packed full of gorgeous white buys for the festive season, we couldn’t think of a better list to champion this week as we head into December (we know, only 25 shopping days left to Christmas… yikes!)

Our fave picks from this list has to be the Missguided mock croc playsuit from their new Peace + Love collection, The Uniqlo Oxford white shirt, and the cute ASOS white paneled shift dress are to die for!

Or if pure white scares you, why not go for a print? Rose print Dr Martens or a quirky satchel instead? If all else fails, you could just sample the trend with a beanie. Sorted.
