20 Tuesday January 17 2017 Kim’s Fashion Quarterly from Kim Taylor —Viva La Moda Sale Time & New Arrivals!!! it’s that time of year where retail stores are going into sale mode to make way for the next season’s exciting arrivals – this can be a great time to get yourself a bargain! it is always wise to have a beautiful dress that fits you perfectly in the wardrobe ready for any last minute invitations, so now can be the time to get that dress you have had your eye on at a discounted price. We have pictured the cute and quirky black & white spot Vivid dress which is now on sale for $104. Staying with the ever popular black & white theme, we have shown the Vargo assymetric skirt (now $122) which looks amazing when teamed up with the coral Vargo top (non sale $139). The tassle necklace is from Kaikoura’s My Tassle range and is $39. Another stunning dress now on sale is the red poppy print Macjays dress (now $125)This dress is very flattering as it is loose fitting but still gives some shape to the body. The red tassle necklace finishes this outfit ($39). We have pictured the pretty and fresh Ivyblu Leah dress which is now on sale for $159. This dress is again a flattering fit as is forgiving through the middle area and is very versatile so could take you anywhere. This dress looks equally good dressed up with heels or dressed down with flats. The Ivyblu label is very popular and is NZ made, made right here in Christchurch. New stock will start to trickle in the doors of fashion stores beginning now and by march stores will be taking on a new season’s feel. Just arrived is the stunning macjays lace dress in navy. This is a fitted but flattering style with lace sleeves and the longer below knee length will please many. This is priced at $275 and its classic style means that it could be your go to dress for many seasons as it won’t date. All of the styles featured are available at Viva La Moda right now so come on in and have a browse. As women we know that if we look good, we feel good, so don’t delay, come and find your perfect outfit. SELWYN TIMES Fashion Dig out your 80s Annabelle Dick looks at this year’s fashion trends THINK GRACE Jones, think Madonna, think Prince. The 80s are back with a vengeance, whether you like it or not. This year will see the comeback of chic 80s wear – even designer Marc Jacobs recently held an exclusive party aptlythemed Grace Jones “Chic 80s” in ode to the 2017 trend. That coincided nicely with his resort ‘17 collection that features ruffles galore and coats more embellished than a Bowie number. Even reality TV star and fashion icon Kim Kardashian is up with the play – she was seen sporting an 80s shoulderpad blazer only last week. FUN: Try playing with chunky belts and embroided clothing for a touch of the 80s trend.

SELWYN TIMES Tuesday January 17 2017 21 wardrobe – it’s back in style FRIVOLOUS: Sleeves will come in all shapes and sizes this year – try a bell sleeve for a chic 80s look. PHOTO: NINA RICCI POP: Make a statement by experimenting with colour and texture. PHOTO: MARC JACOBS EYE-CATCHING: This year’s Pantone colour palette is light, bright and playful. Several designers and fashion forecasters have said 2017 is the year of frivolity. Bell sleeves, flared trousers and ruffled tops are all expected to make a strong feature on this year’s fashion scene. This year’s Pantone Fashion Colour Report, which features the top 10 shades seen on the runway, back up those predictions. The palette is bright and vivid – just like the 80s. In 2016, off-shoulder dresses topped the list of women’s best performing fashion trends. Along with flounces and Bardot styles, they warmed women up to what’s going to be an even bigger year for sleeve shapes. Leg-of-mutton, flared, bell, extra-long and puffed are definitely styles worth experimenting with. Power dressing is also back in fashion too so incorporate the trend into your work wardrobe by pulling out the shoulder pad blazer and pairing it with tailored slacks or wide-leg trousers. In a day and age where less is more, people have been moving towards a minimalistic look with classic tailoring, muted colours and high-quality fabrics. The 80s, however, were an era for bright colours, oversized clothes and accessorised outfits due to the pop culture boom. But don’t let the bold 80s trend ruffle you the wrong way, find ways to adapt certain pieces instead of jumping in head first into the trend – no one wants to look like they’ve just stepped out of a Girls Just Want To Have Fun video clip. Pair a bell-sleeved blouse with boyfriend jeans as a subtle nod to the 80s, or try a faux fur coat on those chilly days. Consider flared trousers, wide belts, embellished and embroided jackets and metallics too. They’re expected to be big on the catwalk and streets in 2017. After seasons of body-con dresses, cut-out wear and athleisure, this year you can relax. Be playful with your outfits, mix and match colours and textures, but most importantly, dress in what makes you feel good. ‘Famous for their roasts!’ RESTAURANT & CAFÉ Kid's SPECIAL Two courses Seniors SPECIAL Two courses Varicose Vein Treatment Non-surgical Vein Laser Treatments available Free Assessment $10 We are family friendly.
