TAKE A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE

The last few days of the Indian summer may be set to fall over the weekend but we’re just not quite ready to let memories of warmer weather go. As our outfits transition into autumn, we’re looking for new ways to keep the heady days of summer alive, starting with this tribal print shift dress from the new season Versace collection. The simple cap sleeve shift dress takes a walk on the wild side with opulent trompe l’oeil tassels, subtle animal print detailing, a panel of baroque patterning and an earthy green, black and gold colour palette.

The sophisticated Versace Collection style is a perfect match for the Mulberry Lily in Clay or Ocean Green. With your outfit and accessories taken care of in one simple shopping trip, all that is left to do is add a strappy sandal and a soft, smoky eye; your autumn party look all sewn up without the usual last-minute panic.

THIS BEACH BAG’S JUST BETTER

 The beach bag is a summer essential and whilst this season has seen a trend for basket bags galore, we’re looking for something a little more substantial to house our summer essentials.

Tan accessories come into their own when the temperatures heat up and the combination of tan, canvas and stripes has put this Michael Kors tote on our wishlist. The Michael Kors East West Tote Bag will take you from the departures lounge to the beach and finally onto the bar. Unlike the basket bag of everyone’s affections, this Michael Kors style won’t look out of place when hot days turn into sultry nights and attentions turn towards the dance floor. Just add wedges and a cotton mini dress for a laidback holiday evening look.

Visit Robinsons today to shop handbags by Michael Kors. We are the region’s leading stockist of Michael Kors clothing and accessories. Call and see us to shop our sale and new season stock at 2 South Parade, Bawtry, DN10 6JH. We’re open 7 days a week! 

BUSINESS IN THE FRONT, PARTY IN THE BACK

A certain singer sang about bringing sexy back and that is exactly what Michael Kors are doing with this new season style.

There’s something seriously sexy about a flash of flesh when it is least expected. A dress that comes across quite innocent from the front, complete with flattering A-line hem and an intricate floral neckline, becomes something else entirely when a glance over the shoulder reveals detailing like this. Laser cut florals cascade over the shoulders and fall right down to the waist, revealing your back beneath and taking the new season Michael Kors style from pretty prim to pretty perfect. It’s a look that will leave a lasting impression as you leave a room.

Exposing one of the most elegant erogenous zones on the body – the back – is subtly seductive, in a way that alludes to what lay beneath, as opposed to giving away the goods up front. This Michael Kors dress could be your perfect dress for the St Leger Festival; wearing a backless dress with a simple, loose up-do to let the detailing and hint of flesh beneath take centre stage is a winning formula that never fails in the style stakes.

The back is back for AW17. Shop this Michael Kors Laser Cut Floral Dress and other new season styles in store now at Robinsons.

THREE WAYS TO UPGRADE YOUR WEEKEND STYLE

After a busy working week, it is easy to fall into a style slump when the weekend rolls around. The active wear you throw on for the gym later suddenly becomes acceptable for running errands and you find yourself wondering when you last wore anything but denim. Mix it up this weekend with our weekend style upgrades, three ways to up your weekend game to 100% with zero effort.

MAKE A STATEMENT

There is no woman in the world who doesn’t appreciate the potential a statement bag has to completely transform an outfit. Switching up your trusty black ‘holds-everything’ tote bag for something a little more adventurous triggers a switch that says “the weekend is here!”

As Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire’s leading Mulberry stockist, we can’t resist the temptations of a pop of colour courtesy of the British designer brand. From the Lily in Ocean Green or Scarlet to the colour-block Cheyne, there is no quicker way to take your jeans and white shirt or black jumper from boring to brilliant. A great designer handbag is a failsafe way to prove your style credentials.

SWITCH JEANS FOR SKIRTS

If weekend = jeans where your wardrobe is concerned, you are not alone. After a working week in more tailored pieces, reaching for your jeans signals the start of your down time. We will never stop loving our designer denim staples but swapping your jeans for a skirt every now and then is one of the quickest way to upgrade your weekend style. Our Lexington Striped Skirt is one of the easiest items to wear for dressed down weekend breakfasts or shopping trips. Later, you’ll be amazed at how wearable a mini becomes when worn with a simple black T-shirt for dinner at a friends.

 

AND FINALLY, DON’T SAVE PIECES FOR BEST!  

Why is it that we save our absolute favourite items of clothing for special occasions? They are often some of the more expensive pieces in our wardrobe and buying them fills us with the kind of excitement that only clothes shopping can, yet we relegate them to the backs of our wardrobes until the next wedding or day at the races rolls around.

Unearthing some of these items doesn’t only better their cost-per-wear, it also upgrades your weekend look without added expense. Try wearing that full midi skirt with a grey sweater or great quality white T-shirt (both of which are absolute must-haves), or dress down a floaty maxi with trainers. You will be amazed at how much more wear you get from your wardrobe.
