Your5 Summer Sartorial Looks

Brent Cross shopping centre once again played host, by opening its doors to Mayninteen, a fabulous events company that presented an exhibit entitled ‘Your 5’. 

With spring/summer upon us and an expected heat wave to greet Brits this summer, it was about time women like myself were told how to shake up our wardrobes with as little effort required. 

The theory?

We are all guilty as charged when we go shopping – we desire and crave what we feel most elegant, womanly, feminine and sexy in, but fail to consider its place in our cupboards and whether we will wear it again. We all have that guilty secret hanging in the closet and time after time, our clothes hang with nothing to match with. We are known as a nation of impulsed buyers and, perhaps you have a shirt that you find difficult to wear casually or a blazer that takes your look from day to night.

Your 5 was there to change it. For two days over the weekend, a fantastic team of experienced and extremely welcoming stylists were on-hand to pin down the key sartorial items needed to take you through the upcoming season of events. The stylists wandered through high-street retailers such as Monsoon, John Lewis, River island and Miss Selfridge to find 5 items that scream ‘trends’ and to help you wear unworn clothes you may already have and to ensure you look regal however you do so!

I went along with my mum and thoroughly enjoyed my experience! The team were fantastic and at my help, was head stylist Elise who took us through each and every stand and presented us with examples from some of my well-loved retailers. Not only did I come away with a future trip to Brent Cross in the pipeline, but a fabulous goodie bag with the centre’s latest offers, freebies and samples to see me through the season.
