2018's Hottest Trends
Hello straight leg, goodbye skinny! Hello monogram print, goodbye understated elegance! Hello ultraviolet, goodbye millennial pink! These are just some of the trends we're hoping to nail this coming season! To be honest we'll be happy if we nail even just one of these trends... (have my fingers crossed for a pyjama trend, now that is something I can get behind)!
Monogram is back baby! Small baby bags as seen on the arms of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie many moons ago are creeping back into mainstream media. We're going to start minimalist with this one as we don't think we can quite nail it a la James Kavanagh. Click here to see James in our UGH-MAZING Gucci monogram jacket! Always ahead of the crowd!
Taking monogram to a whole new level with this Louis Vuitton black multi colour pochette. This bag gives us serious Sex & the City vibes!! These bags aren't in production at the moment so this is a real find!
If there's one bag and one iconic print in particular that's making a comeback it's this Dior navy monogram! You may recognise it from being on the arms of Bryan Boy, Leandra Medine & Susie Bubble. Theirs also come monogrammed with their own name over the print! (Maria Grazia Chiuri if you're reading, my name is Ciara and I would LOVE one too, thanks xoxo)
2. Street Wear
Effortlessly cool, effortlessly chic! There's been a shift from the glamorous, girly and dolled up look. Rather we're seeing movement towards a more laid back, relaxed style. Don't be fooled though, a lot of work goes into looking that cool! (I'm still desperately trying to find the balance between laid back and plain lazy).
Bum bags are the new cross body bags! All the New York and London cool street style kids are wearing them sideways to the front or back. We've styled this H&M x Masison Margiela bum bag with a Victoria Beckham military coat.
We love it styled here to the front with the simplicity of this Acne sweatshirt.
3. Ultra Violet
Ultra violet is Pantone's colour for 2018! I know what you're thinking, what do we do with all the millennial pink that we bought last year? Well, as you can see with this & Other Stories blouse and Halston Heritage skirt; the two colours are a match made in heaven!
Our advice is to have fun with the colour... I mean you only have 11 months until they announce their newest colour! SO make the best of it!! I mean who said colour blocking, prints and glitter is too much?!
4. Floaty Midi Dresses
Who said dresses are just for fawwwncy events? Not us, oh no! In fact according to the Sunday Time's Style magazine they're the new tracksuit! Comfy, oversized and look great dressed down with trainers and a jumper! Now this is one trend I'll try for sure!!
We styled these Lya Solis & Needle & Thread dresses with comfy casual wardrobe staples from Whistles and Zara. The trainers add an edgy and relaxed style while the Dior and Chanel bags bring the Siopaella je ne sais quoi.
5. Straight Leg Jeans
Forget your skinnies (I mean, I'm keeping mine so please don't tell the fashion police). But this season it's all about the straight legged, ankle crop, raw hem jean! We love pairing ours with a vintage shirt while flirting with a whisper of ankle! Seductive and sexy we know! ;)
Can we take a moment and see how well these trends go together! Birra straight leg jean, mixed with the coolest bum bag and the best monogram Dior.
This is a trend that's not even a trend anymore! To some people it's a way of living to others it's an adventure to find that piece they've always wanted. We decided to add it in here as with vintage it can be adapted and changed to suit whatever your mood, whatever the trend and whatever your style.
There is something memorising about a vintage Chanel bag. The gold is goldier (made up word, I know) and the CC turn lock is just that bit more bigger. We're in love! We've styled this Chanel Vintage bag with a faux fur Charlotte Simone scarf and Theory wool and cashmere coat.
Praise to the Vintage Gods for this textured coat of dreams. A truly one of a kind piece styled here with our fav Dior Mini Saddle bag and Siopaedit sunglasses.

Here at Siopaella we are huge advocates of clothing recycling and putting our best foot forward in becoming a more fashion consciousness business. So when Fashion Editor Linda Conway created Stiall a brand built on the belief that 'Fashion can be sustainable and sustainability can be fashionable.' we were behind Stiall 100%!
Siopaella has collaborated with Stiall to bring you the consciously curated collection to our Cecelia street store in Temple Bar, available from November 30th - December 3rd . On Thursday the 30th join us in store from 6:30pm for the launch of this pop up where you can expect on hand style advice and a glass of bubbles!

''Curious, conscious and concerned, Stiall isn’t here to be preachy – but to de-mystify sustainable fashion. Created to provide a place where readers can access honest information on social and environmental policies of brands – helping you to make more informed decisions. Stiall – meaning to strip in the Irish language. Stiall wants to strip fashion back – support transparency and promote brands and movements mirroring our values.''
Hope to see you all there
Jane Swarbrigg CEO of Inglot Ireland (@janeinglot) and our Founder Ella de Guzman recently met at the IMAGE Young Business Women's Forum, where they were both Panelists for the evening. The event was a great success and the two ladies have stayed in touch since! So when Ella got the invite directly from Jane herself she was more than happy to attend.
The evening saw the launch of their Signature Palettes Collection. The collection is made up of four eye-shadow quads with each containing luxurious eye-shadows. And the best thing is that the collection is exclusive to Inglot Ireland.
Ella De Guzman and Gemma from Beauty Nook
We love the colours of each pallet and their names too - Honey, Coco, Berry and Candy. Each eye-shadow is highly pigmented and there is almost no fall out when applied to the eye. The array of colours available compliments all eye colours, allowing you to create endless looks. Each palette is €32 but are currently offering 10% off! All four pallets available now from Inglot Ireland. The venue was first class - cocktails were gorgeous and the interiors at Nolitas were stunning!

Thanks to Jane Swarbrigg from Inglot Ireland and Nolitas for a great evening
Couture crowns and eye catching earrings pretty much sums up the launch of Ciara O'Doherty's formal hair accessory brand Taylor and Rose last night! The evening was also complete with nibbles and champagne in the gorgeous glasshouse of House Dublin.
Taylor and Rose ranges from bespoke headbands to statement earrings and prices range from €16 to €98 so there really is something for everyone! You can find the perfect piece whether it's for a wedding or even just a night out.
We were all able to try on all of the gorgeous pieces at the event and we wont deny we felt a little like princesses with those crowns on lol!
You can check out the entire collection from Taylor and Rose at https://taylorandrose.ie/ and be sure to follow us on Instagram and Snapchat @siopaella to see what other fun things we get up to everyday! :)
As you guys and gals know we here at Siopaella love our Siopaedit brand Native Youth. You seem to love it too! Heres a peak at our latest collection from them. Expect to see lots of stripes and pink in luxe fabrics with a close attention to detail as always.
Lots of great co-ords but the pieces will also work as separates and can easily be mixed and matched.
