Fashion Friday, it’s been a while. I’m pretty content with my stripes and blue combo as of late but when Gemini Woman asked if I’d like to try something new and blue from Sandwich, well, I couldn’t refuse – aesthetic levels through the roof!
Don’t be confused, Sandwich isn’t your lunchtime ritual in this instance, but the leading Dutch fashion brand that has some of the best minimalist casual yet stylish pieces straight from Europe. Gemini is their largest stockist and after previewing their current SS15 range earlier this year, I was more than interested in their predominantly navy AW15 collection – my wardrobe is calling.
As you know I like blue, I like comfort, I like pockets and I like multi-wear pieces, so this Flower Print Dress* immediately ticked all the boxes for me when looking for an investment AW piece. Being 100% cotton, the dress is so comfy and falls over your shape beautifully, feeling cool and breezy but still perfect to layer once the cold weather starts to hit, and paired with long boots, heeled shoes or pumps you can easily take these pieces from day to night.
The whole new season collection hits AW15 trends on the head – blush pinks with a dusty edge for that feminine yet warm touch to your outfit (no dark colours over here for winter) and navy tailoring for those darker evenings, regular parties and even a few key investment basics for layering on weekends when you just need that somethin’somethin. Personally I’m loving the Faux Vintage Leather Skirt which is an awesome colour and length, great for sprucing up a black roll-neck or adding a funky christmas jumper once December rolls round, but one thing is for certain: navy and blue is back for autumn and thanks to Sandwich and Gemini, my wardrobe will be more than content.
Have you shopped at Sandwich or Gemini before? What AW15 trends are you looking forward to? How are you shaping your wardrobe for autumn?
Lots of Love,
