From versatile vests to Boho blouses, tops are Just Darling for whipping a wardrobe back up to speed.
According to fashion gurus Victoria Reddington and Dawn Hunter – the power behind online boutique fashionpony.co.uk – staples for Spring 2011 include animal prints, stripes and velvets– along with a bit of Seventies inspired glam couture.
Here are Fashion Pony’s Six of The Best:
For the truly individual fashionista, the puff sleeve rose shirt handmade by independent designer Bo Carter for Fashion Pony offers one-of-a-kind Victorian punk styling for £40. Stunning teamed with plain black skinnies or with a cheeky short skirt, leggings and ankle boots with attitude.
Taking up the hot, hot, hot animal print theme is the loose fitting, grey chiffon blouse by Goldie Lottie for Fashion Pony. Priced £54, it’s the epitome of sexy chic and comes with oodles of flexibility: worn with low slung belt over a new fishtail maxi skirt; floating open over a boob-hugging vest top and leggings; or tied up and worn with a pair of the new high waisted, tailored tweed shorts.
For pure DramGlam, the ruffle neck top from independent label, Klue by Kelly-Ann, is exclusive to Fashion Pony and just begging to be teamed with jeans and heels for a night of cocktails with the girls. With its statement neckline, this is a Night-On-The-Town winner for £35.
Get down and dirty with another one-of-a-kind from Fashion Pony. Bo Carter’s stylish but understated handmade Hessian and sheer square-neck top comes with a centre zip to the front and tantalising sheer panel at the back. It costs £35 and looks knockout with new-look cropped trousers.
With stripes set to be mega for most of the year, the hip-hugging motor squirrel vest from All Brat and Suzie at Fashion Pony is perfect to wear over leggings for a casual day look – or over bikinis for on the beach. Priced £24 it comes in 100% combed cotton and can also be worn with a clear conscience as it’s ethically produced.
Velvet is back as another big fave and the velvet and sleeve top, handmade by Bo Carter for Fashion Pony is definitely the super-luxe Way To Go. Wear it with the detachable sleeves to make an uber-grand entrance; or without if plain and simple is more the mood. At £40 it’s a steal.
