We love catching up and chatting about style and trends, so when styling advice site Dress Me Daisy approached us for our styling tips on how to wear 40′s and 50′s inspired trends we jumped at the chance to share our thoughts!
Dress Me Daisy offer styling advice for real women on how to wear trends and wardrobe update ideas and try not to be unrealistic about what real women will wear and can afford. We admire this refreshing approach to fashion and we share many of their ideals, for example, apart from the stunning Ellie Paige, who won our Model of The Year competition, our models are real girls who actually work in our office so we know that what we design will suit the girl on the high street looking for something edgy yet feminine.
40′s and 50′s styles are a huge inspiration for us and they were also all over the A/W 2011 and S/S 2012 catwalks, from gorgeous hourglass silhouettes, nipped-in waists and fabulous full skirts from Betsey Johnson and Prada, to David Koma and Louis Vuitton…
You can check out our vintage inspired trend tips on Dress Me Daisy here this week!

Although we admire the hot pants and band tee indie look that, let’s be honest, is comfortable, practical and never out of trend, we most definitely take our hats off to those who still manage to look ladylike, stylish and festival-suitable when battling their way through a muddy field. Our fashion heroes of Glastonbury 2011 (apart from Beyonce of course), are Alexa Chung and Jacquetta Wheeler…
Alexa can always be relied upon to bring a good sense of style to any event and didn’t disappoint. In an ivory Topshop Dress, quilted Chanel bag and black leather Chelsea ankle boots, she looked festival-perfect…
Meanwhile model Jacquetta combined her vintage red dress and leather jacket with Hunter wellies and a Mulberry Rosie satchel…
If you’re attending any festivals this summer and fancy stealing their style we suggest a pair of Hunter wellies, a black leather jacket, a gorgeous handbag, on-trend shades and any of the following…
The Pleated Lace Air Dress is available in cream or black and is now only Â£20.00 in our not-to-be-missed sale! Available in one size fits all, this loose fitting dress will allow you the freedom to dance the night away or if you’d prefer to emphasize your curves just accessorize with a skinny tan belt. Add a flower garland to your tousled hair and you’re ready to go!
Or if you’d prefer something a little bit more fitted to start with, then look no further than the Alice Dress in Liberty pale pink Rose. Stunning, full-skirted and feminine, this dress is bound to get you attention and would look ultra-cute with wellies and abit of a rock styling!

One of the top biggest karma gainers of all timeÂ on lookbook.nu, Olivia Harrison, posted photos of herÂ wearing theÂ Jones + Jones Pleated Sarah Dress in white yesterday, much to the excitement of the Jones + Jones office! We love Olivia’s style and we’re glad we can addÂ herÂ to our huge fanbase in the north west of England!
Olivia styled her Sarah Dress with a leather jacket and creepers, giving the femininity of the Sarah Dress an edgy twist…
The Pleated Sarah Dress is available in all three colours on our website here and is also available in yellow and orange while stocks last in our concessions in select Topshop stores including Liverpool and the Trafford Centre in Manchester.
As soon as the Jones + Jones office saw Topshop’s Winnie Espadrille Wedges in Fuschia we knew we were onto a good thing. T-bar strapping in fuschia suede with stitching detail, these shoes are so hot for the summer.
We starting day dreaming about what we would wear them with and here are a couple of our favourite suggestions…
Starting with the Liberty Rose Print Dresses – the fuschia perfectly matches the rose print and will be the perfect summer accessory to finish offÂ the outfit.
The Phoebe Dress in Liberty Rose Print would look stunning these wedges:
Our next suggestion would be the new Pleated Sarah Dress. CombineÂ the wedgesÂ with the white Sarah Dress for a very fresh and feminine look with your tan or with the orange Sarah Dress to show off your fashion trend knowledge by colour blockingÂ in bold and bright pink and orange Ã laÂ Jil Sander and PradaÂ S/S 2011!And finally any of our cream dresses would look gorgeous with these wedges, and our best seller of season so farÂ is no exception. TheÂ Vivienne Dress in pleated cream lace is the perfect summer dress and combined with the perfect summer shoes, you can’t go wrong! The wedges are available on the Topshop website by clicking here and all of the above dresses and so many more are available on our website by clicking here. The Phoebe Dress in Liberty Rose Print is currently available in our concessions in select Topshop stores now and theÂ Pleated Sarah Dress in all colours will be arriving into our concessions this week!
We’d love to hear your outfit suggestions too!

We at the Jones + Jones office love nothing better than seeing our wonderful customers styling up our beautiful garments in trendy, fun and imaginative ways!
We’ve already noticed some stunning images popping up on lookbook.nu and chictopia.com as well as in amazing fashion blogs and we felt so inspired by it all, we thought we’d run a new competition from today until midnight on Wednesday the 23rd of March to give one lucky lady a chance to win her favourite Jones + Jones Dress from the Jones + Jones Â S/S 2011 collection so far on our website!
We’re inviting all of our lovely customers to post a photograph of themselves styled up in their favourite Jones + Jones outfit onto our Facebook page complete with two sentences. The first sentence should be why you love Jones + Jones so much (because we know you do!) and the second sentence should be about your style influences for your photograph – get creative!
We will then judge the images and sentences on Thursday the 24th of March and our favourites will be invited to submit their image and information about themselves including their fashion and style influences and their blog if they have one. We will post all of this information on a Jones + Jones blog per favourite entrant starting from Friday the 25th of March- a great chance to show the world how stylish you are and advertise your blog while you’re at it! The blogger who has the most Facebook likes for their Jones + Jones blog by Saturday the 2nd of April will win their favourite dress!
Have fun and get styling!
