afford a holiday this year, but with this new trend any of us can pretend we’re
out walking through a mountain range or in the middle of the Sahara.
This trend caught my eye when a few months back now Black
Milk added the ‘Middle Earth’ section to their website, as a big Lord of the
Rings/Hobbit fan this pleased me very much. One of my favourite items in the
series was undoubtedly the Middle Earth Map leggings. They are stocked in both
silver and gold and I think they are beautiful. Black Milk have also introduced
many other unique patterns and designs and if you haven’t seen them (where have
you been?!) get on over to the website pronto.
Topshop have a beautiful range including the map print blouse
and the tunic dress, both including similar maps of the same colour palette.
Topshop also have a map bandeau which presents a more summery and up lifting
design, ideal for this years holiday and festival season.
One of my favourite things about this discovery trend is the
colour scheme. The use of warm and bronzing colours with the monochrome whites
and blacks work great and can easily be accessorised. The idea of the vintage
map is what designers have used, ignoring the modern day blues and greens and
sticking to the warmth of the desert style tones.
To accessorise this style is easy, firstly with such a
dynamic colour range you can explore shades to blend in or stand out. There’s
no need to keep safe with khakis and browns, why not step out of the suitcase
and try some white nails and morange lips. I have also included on the image
options for footwear, you would stay with the gladiator sandal or you could
step it up a bit and add a heel.
So there’s no need for satnav this summer ladies, grab a map
and have some great adventures this summer!!
