Summer Trend Guide: Under the Sea

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 /

This Summer, clearly taking inspiration from the likes of Chanel, Versace and Givenchy, the mermaid look is most definitely in.

We've all seen candy colours, colour blocking, neons and florals *yawn* come round as predictably as it being pouring rain all Summer long (in the UK at least) but this one is certainly a new one on me, and one I am more than happy to dedicate some time to!

The mermaid look involves anything iridescent, sparkly, glistening, gleaming and magical. Think Ariel, sans the shell bra, and you're on the right lines.

Summer sequins as shown above, in glimmering turquoise, teal and gold are the catch of the day, paired with metallics and quirky water inspired prints and accessories- conch clutch bag anyone?

Chanel's make up also showed a leaning towards mermaids, with pearlescent eye shadows, dewy skin and a light lip colour with a hint of shine.

Do any of the mermaid inspired items above catch your eye?
