Ways To Wear It: Summer Outerwear

As usual, the British summer time has let us down again. With nothing but rain and cool winds dominating the July weather, we thought you could use a bit of inspiration when it comes to dressing for the unpredictable English climate. Light layers are key here and we have a selection of lightweight jackets in-store that can be worn whatever the occasion…

We stock this classic Bariloche blazer in both navy and black: it’s a wardrobe staple. The best thing about a classically cut blazer is it’s versatility, it can be dressed up or down or even worn to work. Here we’ve paired the navy version with a sharp white shirt and a silk tee for two different looks.

Access All Accessories

Accessories are sometimes over-looked as an optional extra to an outfit, but this is a mistake! Accessories can make or break an outfit. They’re also the best way to make your outfit stand out – a unique styling point.

Here at Sister we’ve got a wide range of accessories on offer, from Pranella jewellery and Alpe shoes to Michael Kors and Lisa Kay handbags!

Jewellery

All necklaces above by Pranella, available in-store and online.

Pranella is a British jewellery brand founded in 2007. Here at Sister it’s a favourite with staff and customers alike! Each piece is made using semi-precious and natural stones, therefore every piece is a little bit unique in some way. We love the colours of the collection this Summer, perfect for accessorising on holiday! We also now stock the Pranella Beach range of kaftans in store too.

Scarves

IMG_3763

From left to right: scarves by Laura Orchant, Marc Cain and Miss Shorthair. Available in-store.

Scarves can get forgotten about when it comes to Summer, but this is wrong! A silk scarf is always chic whatever the weather and is probably one of the most versatile items in any stylish woman’s wardrobe. Tie it round your neck, your head or even your handbag for a personal touch to any outfit.

Belts

IMG_3755

All above by Elliot Rhodes. In-store now.

New this season to Sister are these Elliot Rhodes belts. Elliot Rhodes is a luxury leather accessories brand based in London. These belts are particularly special because the buckles are inter-changeable. This means you can customise your belt to your specific taste and style without compromising on quality. You’ll walk away with a piece that is 100% you.

Handbags

IMG_3754

All above by Michael Kors. Available in-store and online now.

Our Michael Kors bags are by far the most popular accessory that we sell. The mini Selma style pictured above is ideal for the Summer. Nobody wants to lug around a large, heavy handbag when it’s hot out, and these are the solution: roomy enough for the essentials without looking bulky. The mini Selma is also great if you’re off on holiday, our colours will work for day or nighttime.

It’s so important when attending an event that every piece of your outfit is flawless, from your make-up to your handbag. Our in-store team particularly love the glittery finish on the two bags pictured. Any added sparkle is sure to attract attention!

Shoes

IMG_3764

Nothing says special occasion quite like a co-ordinating handbag and shoes! These styles have been very popular this season because not only are they eye-catching, they’re also very comfortable. Shoes are the ideal item to take your outfit from bland to wow.

IMG_3765

All above by Alpe and available in-store and online.

We also stock Spanish shoe brand Alpe. Our Alpe shoes this season come in a mostly neutral colour palette, so they’ll slip easily into any wardrobe. Peep toe ankle boots are a big trend for Summer, wear yours for a lunch date or evening out with the girls and they’ll see you through to Autumn.

Holiday Hot Shots

This week at Sister HQ we’re dreaming of Summer holidays. With the weather getting warmer here in Sheffield and the nights getting lighter, it’s no surprise our interest is turning towards even warmer climes.

We’ve put together a selection of outfits to take you from England to the beach and back again. Nothing says Summer like bright colours and vibrant prints…

The Workwear Edit

Has there ever been a greater dilemma than deciding what to wear for work? Here at SISTER we think not!

With endless days spent in the office, it’s no wonder that we can all get bogged down in the same old routine, especially when it comes to our wardrobes (we all have that drawer full of faithful black trousers).

But with so much time spent in the workplace, it’s a shame not to make the most of your outfits.

Just look at these celebs for inspiration! Bright pumps are paired with figure hugging silhouettes to create chic yet classy outfits.

We’ve compiled together five pieces, based around work staples, so there’s no excuse to dress dull…

The BlazerTailored jackets have always dominated the work scene.The modern blazer is relaxed and feminine – long gone are the days of shoulder pads and 80’s dressing. Lighten up your outfit with a nude piece, such as this Riani one. Pair with this reptile inspired Codello scarf, black skinny Mac jeans and Sargossa booties to make for a smart but stylish look.

The White ShirtThe white shirt is a key piece for any work wardrobe – a crisp blouse instantly smartens up an outfit. Why not try one with a ruffled neckline? Match this shirt with long straight legged Salsa jeans, an Etnika necklace and nude heels.

Denim DressWe love mixing and matching with new textures and fabrics. Dare to denim with this Luisa Cerano dress. Smarten it up with black court shoes, a drawstring bucket bag and a beaded bracelet. The result is a classic and coordinated outfit.

PleatedModels stormed across SS16 catwalks in pleats. Seemingly a straitlaced option, the tucked style has been bought to life with pattern and playful cuts. Try the look for yourself with this top – we love the subtle dragon print. Place alongside white trousers and Alpe wedges for a work-appropriate look.

Black BagNothing pulls a style together better than a black bag. Make yours patent with this Harrie Hendricks one. Wear with a patterned Ilse Jacobsen dress, and matching heels to create a timeless ensemble.

All items are available online. Some can also be found in store.

We decided to pull together our favourite Marc Cain looks, to save you browsing through…

1) Pearls

IMG_1004
Marc Cain clothes, Michael Kors side bag, Alpe shoes 

Embroidered pearls make for the ultimate feminine look. Co-ordinate this Marc Cain jacket with a floral vest, and matching pearl decorated jeans. Plain nude accessories pull the ensemble together, creating a unique look which isn’t too over the top.

2) Bardot

IMG_1011
Marc Cain top, Mac jeans, Lisa Kay clutch and shoes

Bardot necklines are all the rage this season. The elegant cut shows off your neck and collarbones, yet remains modest at the same time. Create a Parisian look with Breton stripes and cropped white Mac jeans, jazzed up with a sparkly Lisa Kay clutch and pumps.

3) Summer Brights
