Shopcade SS14 Top Picks

By handpicking new and unique pieces from all over the UK, the Shopcade store aims to feature talented and emerging designers of which they know you'll love. There is currently a sum of twelve designers who are featured on the Shopcade store and the gifted selection is still growing. Shopcade are currently giving you the opportunity to win a £150 Shopcade Store gift card by blogging about your favourite products on their site. So here are mine...

To be honest, I haven't really been wearing much of the PVC trends recently, however, this sheer, translucent top could happily be made an exception into my wardrobe. Whist the high shine throws drama and attitude, the box top style adds a laid-back feel towards the garment. I most like the idea of the fact that you can layer this over pretty much anything - crop tops; vest tops; dresses; playsuits etc - and it would still look perfect for SS14, although I would most likely style it with a patterned bralet and a pair of high waisted skinny jeans, to gain a cool and collected attire.

Printed tees are perfect for those days when you really don't feel like dressing up too much and just want something easy-going to wear. I particularly like this one due to the rather large, sparkly ice cream, sat in the centre of the garment that you really cannot miss. The shape makes it perfect for wearing in the summer months and the pale pink colour does prevent the vivid ice cream from making the garment too overpowering. To keep the look casual, I would pair this with either some skinny jeans or shorts and of course some jelly shoes to keep the summer theme.

3) Lotus Earrings - £15
Handmade in London, these geometric shaped earrings would be the perfect finish to the majority of your summer outfits as the delicate shaping against the pastel colour keep them subtle, sophisticated and versatile.

4) Lace Crop Top - £24
Am I ever going to grow to not lusting over every lace garment I stumble across? Probably not. It has to be one of my top favourite trends for SS14, following my huge love for it last year. The tiny crochet flowers appear dainty and elegant whilst the scalloped hem creates a slightly raw and also delicate edge to the extremely cute crop top. The white colour makes it great for teaming with pretty much anything, however, I would most likely go for pairing with an aztec skirt to mix up the trends a little.

Who doesn't enjoy a good ol' statement necklace? The brilliant blues against the rich gold make this one perfect for summer and teaming with, again, pretty much anything. In fact, it would work a complete trick with the lace crop top above.
