Hi, I’m Jelena from @into.trends. It’s no secret that I like to shop and one of my favourite places to go is the intu Trafford Centre. With so many different brands at the Manchester shopping centre, it really doesn’t matter what you’re looking for because you’ll always find something to suit every occasion.
Recently, I was lucky enough to spend a day in the centre to pick up some of my favourites for summer 2018, the only question was: where to start?
Summer is a time for events of every type and you always need classics that will work for many different occasions. For me, no wardrobe is complete without a white embroidered blouse or dress and this one from The Kooples in Selfridges has to be one of my favourites. Whether it’s for daytime wear or a night out, it’s easy to mix and match this top with a skirt or jeans. This classic transitional piece is must for every wardrobe.
Who says that little black dresses must be little? This ruffle dress from The Kooples is just right for a summer party or some late-night cocktails on a roof terrace.
As worn by Emily Ratajkowski, The Kooples' Rosa Rosa printed red dress is perfect for a summer holiday. When paired with biker boots or a leather jacket, it’s a style that will work throughout every season.
Add some heels in a subtle shade, a statement hat and a metallic clutch to really complete the look.
The countdown to summer is on! This means it's officially time to get some new summer shoes and a great place to do this is Kurt Geiger.
Easy to wear to the beach or through town, no one should be without sandals during the hotter months. So why not try these brown leather-look flats by Kurt Geiger? And if you want something a little different for the summer, then these sliders are just amazing.
If you’re looking for something for a night out, then mid-heels are the perfect choice. You won’t struggle to find the right colour, as Kurt Geiger has them in (almost) every colour you can imagine.
Feeling sporty? Chunky dad sneakers make the perfect contrast to all your summer dresses and skirts.
The turn of a new season is a great time to update your signature scent and my ultimate spring/summer fragrance is Chance by Chanel. With top notes of lemon and cedar, it is super light and fresh, just like a summer breeze.
See you soon, Jelena.
