For a relaxed daywear look, simply pair with some comfortable pumps, a slouch jumper and a cool beanie hat for an effortless trendy ‘i didn’t try to hard but i still look incredible’ look.

On your way out for a few evening beverages and perhaps a little bite to eat? Not a problem! Whip off the hat and comb the hat hair through. Freshen up your face, take off your jumper and add a smart coat, for those chilly evening breezes! Slip on a pair of classy courts and your good to go! Not over doing it, but looking smart enough you can be sure you won’t be buying the drinks! This dress really speaks for itself and needs little to distract from it!

Hitting the town, getting ready for a dance and wanna turn up in style? Colour is stand out and exciting. Be noticed and compliment your colourful outfit with some bright yellow heels and a vibrant chunky necklace that will sit lovely over the lace! Add some cute netted ankle socks, and a sophisticated sharp hair up-do. Great with a cropped fur jacket, for extra edge!

#DailyEdit – Cat Eyes

 

The hottest new beauty look this AW is definitely the ‘Cat Eye’!!The perfect cat eyeliner is ever fashionable, very flattering for most eye shapes and delivers a sultry, mysterious look even when the rest of your makeup remains low key.

Cat Eye 1

We will all be rocking it in the office in no time after following these easy tips…

Cat Eyes

Our makeup artist suggests curling your lashes, then dotting on a light layer of eye-shadow primer or oil-free foundation from lids to brows. Both grip onto makeup, preventing color from migrating.

1. Gently pull your lid upward so you can see its inner rim. Line the rim with a few coats of jet-black waterproof pencil. Then line the inner rim of your lower lash line.

2. Next, use the same pencil to line the skin directly above your upper lash line. Blend color into lashes with an angled brush.

3. Layering liquid liner over pencil is the key to a stay-put look—the liquid dries and locks down the first layer of color. With a black liquid-liner pen, make four evenly spaced dashes over the pencil line, then connect them.

4. Now it’s time to create the winged-out edge. Close your eye, and trace a finger along your upper lid’s crease, moving outward. When it meets the bony part of your eye, mark the spot with a dot of liquid liner.

5. Place the tip of the liquid-liner pen on the dot, and drag it to the outer corner of your eye, thickening the line as you go.

6. Once the liner has dried, dab your lid with a creamcolored liquid shadow, then place a metallic version on the area just above your crease line and inner corner, for a more going out look. Like creams, liquids catch light but stand up better to the heat. Finish with two coats of black mascara.

We’re not the only ones rocking the sultry look, check out all the celebrities that swear by it…

Summer Sounds in jones + jones Dresses…

music playlistPatterns are always an attention grabber and the Georgie dress is really cute too! Perfect for dancing in but also chilling out with a picnic listening to some blissful beats.

Also check out our Marie and Carly dresses highly practical and also highly visible to make you stand out in a crowd.

Music playlist. Dressing for festivals

 

 

You might think the Cream Audrey is a strange choice but whites and nudes have been a strong trend for the summer and is also the coolest colour when it comes to the heat (as we all know we complain once it’s here!).

However this is where practicality comes in, how do you keep it stain free in a very messy world? Basically watch where you sit (be that loser who carries a plastic bag to sit on not the one with a dodgy looking brown stain), watch where your food and drink is going (in your mouth not down your dress) and lastly hope it doesn’t rain so your tan stays firmly in place. So if all goes to plan you will look lovely and fresh bouncing to beats!

Denim has also been a massive story this summer and our Monica dress fits perfectly into a music scene. Cute enough with it’s full skirt and white detailing but with a denim edge to ensure you can go see the most obscure band and still be the belle of the ball.

Check out our sounds of the Summer to get you in the mood whether going to a festival or to see a local band, happy listening!

Steal her Style! Tich wears jones + jones in New Video ‘Obsession’.

New Video Obsession from Tich features custom made jones + jones dress

Already massively aware of Tich, from her debut single ‘Dumb’ and having spied her in a couple of our frocks before you can only imagine the excitement in the office when we were asked to design a dress especially for her!

For the brief, the only thing to bear in mind was her signature colours of blue and white and that it was for a party. Obvs no problem!

Tich is definitely destined for great things especially if her new single, ‘Obsession’ is anything to go on. A summery tune about becoming completely obsessed with a boy she spots across the room. Definitely something we can all relate to!  Her special blue and white jones + jones number can be seen at the beginning, while being the centre of attention at a party. We love the white lace and bright blue together and are definitely putting in a call to the designers to make this little beauty for everyone.

 

New Video Obsession from Tich features custom made jones + jones dress

 

We also have heard a rumour that during the filming one of the dresses got stuck over her head while changing and needed to cut off to be able to carry on! We hope it wasn’t ours!?

Tich has been a busy girl recently not only filming videos for her latest releases but has just come off tour with Olly Murs and gained fans such as One Direction, Nick Jonas, JLS and The Wanted who have all voiced their support for her! Lucky girl!

Tich has also recently been spotted in our Boarder Laura Dress and the Laura Cream, both of which she has styled to perfection. Teaming them with plenty of bangles, a long necklace pendant and studded boots to create a modern twist on boho, she looks every inch the popstar. Definitely some style tips we will be trying out this summer!
