Our gorgeous new looks will be available from Monday… but we thought we’d give you a sneaky preview of a few of our favourites:
Once again we’ve a stunning collection from the lovely Arlene Phillips! Gorgeous prints in styles to suit your shape, and that you can wear straight from the wash….. fabulous! Here are a few of our favourites, that you’ll find on the website from Monday 1st August.
The Arlene Phillips fashion collection has been just fantastic… and we can’t wait to show you the rest of the range next week!
Last night was one of the biggest, and most glittering events of the celebrity calendar – the Oscars! There were two trends that really stood out this year; red and nude shades. We also have a great collection of red carpet ready looks and party outfits, so if you’re struggling to find you perfect outfit – you’ll get it here!
Lady In Red
This look is bold and sexy, but can be difficult to get right. This gorgeous red dress is perfect for capturing this look. It’s formal without being stuffy and can be worn in so many different ways. Just add flat sandals for day wear, or dress it up with some black court shoes and a stunning bag.
The other trend that was clear at last night’s academy awards was nude shades with feature detailing. This gorgeous nude disc dress from the Arlene Phillips fashion collection is the ideal way to get this demure look.
Which do you prefer, bold reds or subtle nudes?
Since the announcement of the Royal Wedding everyone has been scrambling to find the perfect wrap dress. There was even an article about how the wrap style suits all body shapes. But we think we might have cracked it with the mock wrap dress from the Arlene Phillips range.
This gorgeous style has all the flattering features of a traditional wrap dress without the drawbacks. The band to the waist avoids the usual lopsided look that many wrap dresses cause, whilst the ruching to the front means this style truly suits all shapes.
The colour of this dress is totally on trend for spring, offering a much brighter, sunnier shade than many other styles that are around. It’s perfect for any special occasion, and as Arlene shows in the picture above, it goes perfectly with this season’s nude accessories.
What do you think, do you love the wrap style or loathe it?
When it comes to spring and summer adding some colour into your wardrobe can really lift your mood! The Sea Garden range from the Arlene Phillips fashion collection at Marisota is just perfect for helping put that summery spring in your step.
Fresh sea inspired colours are teamed with curve friendly, comfortable styles that will show off your best bits, and hide those problem areas.
Take this gorgeous Arlene Phillips button detail tunic for example. It’s the perfect length for wearing with trousers, slim leg jeans or leggings. It skims your shape without clinging and features a flattering scoop neck. Plus the pale blue shade is going to be seriously popular this season!
If you prefer more muted tones then opt for this stylish Arlene Phillips embellished jersey top in navy.
The embellishment is just enough to add curves if you’re lacking, but won’t make you look top heavy thanks to the scoop neckline. Perfect for spring/ summer nights out when you fancy a bit of sparkle.
What do you think of the new Arlene Phillips fashion range?
Too often our winter wardrobes become all about keeping warm, and not about style! At Marisota we’re revisiting the leggings look – not only are they warm, but they have so much more to offer! The beauty of leggings is that they’re comfortable, cosy and the right pair can look fantastic!
Leggings in casual wear
When it comes to choosing a comfortable, casual outfit leggings couldn’t be better. Just wear them with a longline jumper, tunic top or short knitted dress and flat knee high boots for perfect casual style! You can also wear them with ballet pumps if they have detail to cuff.
These cute zip leggings by Jeffrey and Paula are the perfect choice for any casual leggings look!
Leggings can also make the ideal addition to a gorgeous party outfit. Get some smart leggings and add a sequinned tunic or dress and heels for the perfect party look.
These dew drop leggings are perfect for a sparkly look that’s ideal for any night out!
You can also get a decadent look with leggings by playing with different textures. These gorgeous velvet leggings from the Arlene Phillips fashion collection are perfect for giving an air of sophistication and opulence. Plus they’re lovely and warm!
So don’t forget to factor your leggings in this winter! I know I’ll be wearing mine!
As you know, the Arlene Phillips fashion collection has some gorgeous looks to choose from, so with the party season approaching I thought I’d offer an Arlene Phillips party wear special.
The top and trousers look – good for work parties as it’s comfortable but glamorous!
For those who prefer a party dress
If you prefer something dressier (tee hee) then this gorgeous lace dress from the Arlene Phillips range at Marisota is gorgeous and will work for a whole range of occasions! Even better, the Arlene Phillips fashion collection is available in plus sizes, so you can get glamorous in sizes from 14 – 32!
All you need to add to these looks is a really good pair of party shoes, something that is no mean feat if you need wide fitting shoes! These gorgeous sequinned heels from Marisota come in an E or EEE width fitting and are great for finishing your glamorous look!
So enjoy the party season in style!
