Summer inspiration & key pieces

Stella & Dot's Chief Creative Officer Blythe Harris shows us her amazing, retro and colourful inspiration board for Summer and makes us love the whole Summer collection even more.

Totally Tropical

Keep your cool mixing a bold Summer print with crisp modern naturals. Hot shades of coral, tangerine and citrine were all over the runway for Summer 2014 and are now everywhere on the High Street. Wear through Summer into Autumn/Winter as neon brights become a year-round trend.


Shown here:

The Switch in Aztec Coral £115, City Slim Clutch in Aztec Coral £45, Gwyneth Hoops £45, Cady Wrap Bracelet £50, Sahara Pendant Necklace £40, City Slim Clutch in Diamond Raffia £45, Coral Cay Earrings £45, Coral Cay Necklace £80, Gwyneth Station Necklace £75

The Cady Wrap Bracelet is back in stock!

Back after selling out three times! Butter-soft leather in a versatile blush colour is hand-embroidered and beaded with vintage gold, white enamelled brass beads, and crystals, £50. Looks great alone or layered with other styles such as the Eden Bangle for a Summer festival look.

Steal vs Splurge!

The Stella & Dot Avalon Tote in Blush is style for a steal!


This crisp and modern tote is inspired by our unique laser cut Avalon jewellery styles. Tote around in style with this unique bag which includes a pouch perfect for your keys, phones and unmentiontionables. Signature Stella & Dot custom pyramid hardware for just a little edge.

Company Magazine

Company has picked out Stella & Dot's Florence Stackable Bands as one of their Fashion Five. Stacking made simple, £40.

Image Magazine

IMAGE magazine says our Sardinia Bracelet is a must-have for our summer holiday...I agree! Inspired by a vintage Parisian piece, this colourful statement bracelet of the season evokes the wanderlust lifestyle. Unparalleled craftsmanship with over 100 cabochon stones hand set in vintage gold, £80.

'How just ONE pricey buy can turn a High Street bargain into the epitome of chic'

  • You don't need to spend hundreds of pounds on your outfit to look the part
  • One expensive item makes your whole ensemble look high-end
  • Pick out the right pricey pieces and match them with care


You don’t need to spend hundreds of pounds on matching designer trousers, tops, jackets and shoes for your outfit to look the part.

Far from it. Instead, pick one expensive item and team it with cheaper High Street pieces to make your ensemble look high-end without having to go the whole hog.

It’s all about picking the right pricey pieces and mixing and matching them with care.


STATEMENT NECKLACE

Necklace, £115, stelladot.co.uk. Pink dress, £29.99, hm.com. White blazer, £24.99, mango.com, Heels, £29.50, marksandspencer.com.

Dresses with embellishments cost a fortune. Save money and invest in a pricey statement necklace instead. Worn together, the necklace looks like an integral part of your dress.

DAILY MAIL
