Feminine Charm // Inspired by Alice


Last week we received the new Ban.do collection, and as per usual there's a certain quirky, feminine charm to each and every piece. Full of classic favourites (like the Girlie Bow or Twist Scarf) and colourful new charmers (like the Print & Shine Bobbi Set or the Shine Tiny Headband), it has us newly inspired to play around with our accessories and add a little something extra to our daily outfits. Throwing on a bow, bobbi pin or headband can be the perfect way to do so, offering us a way to infuse some colour and print into our wardrobes, especially with the options that are now available. With colour name such as 'mermaid' and 'perfect pink', it's no surprise that we're smitten, especially with the mix of polka dots, stripes and glitter that also play a key role in the collection. 

We're always pulling beauty inspiration, whether it's for a photo shoot or just some every day ideas, and recently we've been noticing that we're gravitating 'dos that feature a little hair accessorizing, often with the help of a bow or fancy bobbi. Mixed with feminine styling and hair that's slightly tousled with a bit of volume for a 60s influence, it's the perfect way to complete a look.

In terms of the outfit itself, it's very Alice influenced (classic femininity; a sophisticated, uptown look - think Old Hollywood glamour with a modern twist). Polka dots are always a key print, and tweed plays into this style perfectly. We love the Neon Lights Tweed Dress, with its touches of metallic and neon, or the pearl collared Emmy Rouge Embroidered Dress would also be an ideal choice.

So however you decide to incorporate this trend into your own personal style, we've pulled a little inspiration that has us dreaming of ways to add a little feminine charm into our own looks.
