Warehouse: Belfast Forestside
SUMMER style has officially arrived at Warehouse Belfast Forestside.
The VIP viewing of the Spring / Summer 2013 Warehouse collection unearthed a mesmerizing new range to ensure you are bang-on-trend this season.
The event, which took place Thursday 28 February, lasted from 7 pm until 9 pm in the luxurious Warehouse flagship store at Forestside, Belfast.
As well as being treated to a special 25 % press discount card, mingling guests were treated to bubbly upon entry, and even gifted with generous goodie bags from Rituals at Victoria Square.
But with each section of the flagship store offering dramatically different, alluring new Spring/ Summer trends, it was hard to know where to turn to first.
Navy and lace appeared to be a dominant force within the Warehouse SS13 collection, with plenty of gorgeous tops and dresses taking on this season’s colour and detail of choice.
Lace was abundant in the form of playsuits and dresses, as well as adding a much needed boost to last season’s popular chunky knits in order to refresh the newly awarded wardrobe-staple for this season.
Whilst most items featured gorgeously subtle lace detailing in order to instantly update your Spring / Summer look, lace took centre-stage in the form of a number of dramatic, high-impact dresses.
Amongst those which would immediately promise a show-stopping, glamorous, night-time look included a beautiful lace panelled bodycon dress, as well as a navy, lace skater dress ensuring you instantly nail three key-trends effortlessly.
Baring all is back, as the nude look returns this season. But with the latest Warehouse collection, the tricky trend is made easy with beautiful, angelic ruffle and lace detailing, along with flattering cuts to make sure you look your best this season.
In true Breton style, monochrome mania will be huge this season. To ensure you are in with the trend, Warehouse is offering timeless colour combinations of the indispensable basic.
Horizontal stripes bring a new dimension to this trend, and the collection of tees and jumpers on offer in Warehouse offer stark opposition to the popular belief stripes need to be vertical in order to flatter your figure.
Structured, striped blazers and loose-fitting, casual striped jumpers are simple ways to update your wardrobe with the monochrome look.
But not to be forgotten are the innovative baroque and butterfly tribal prints this Warehouse collection has to offer in order to flatter your figure and look your best this summer.
In the meantime, whilst this season’s signature acid-wash denim shorts will have to wait to be worn until the warmer temperatures hit, cover up while also ensuring some serious fashionista points with the skinny-peg trouser, of which Warehouse have a great collection.
This gorgeous on-trend structured look will take you seamlessly through the transition of Autumn / Winter weather to the sunny season of Spring / Summer.
Fringing, animal print, and acid wash will continue to dominate as we make the transition to our greatly anticipated summer wardrobe. In the meantime, Warehouse’s collection of show-stopping bags and accessories will ensure you are always effortlessly on-trend.
Thankfully, leather is set to stay this season, with lighter materials and colours lifting the trend seamlessly into the summer months.
In the meantime, make the transition to your new wardrobe by toughening up summer dresses with a tough, distressed leather or acid-washed denim jacket to create an effortlessly glamorous day-time look. Simply add heels for a seriously dramatic night-time outfit.
If you want to buy one show-stopping piece this season, make it the stylist’s choice of the blurred splash print maxi.
At £80 the price is worth this eye-catching, floor-length maxi-dress, reminiscent of a Monet painting with it’s beautiful blue and jewel-pink tones throughout.
Simply add ear-rings for a high impact, minimal effort look and allow the dress to take centre-stage.
