As a Manchester based start-up, we’re beyond excited that Monki have recently opened a new store in the city’s Arndale shopping centre. Our bank balance will definitely have a Monki shaped hole in it on a regular basis since the shop is within walking distance of our office, but our wardrobe will be top notch! Even if you’re still heading to their website or ASOS for your Monki fix, check out how Looker’s are styling up their latest Scandi-cool inspired garms.
Becky’s striped t-shirt dress is ideal for the upcoming warm weather! The oversized fit will keep you cool while the colour combo adds a stylish update to the classic nautical stripe. You’ll get your money’s worth too as it looks just as good with sandals as it will with fresh white trainers!
As we’re inching closer and closer to summer, lightweight cover-ups like kaftans and shackets should be on your SS18 radar. Steal Winnie’s look by layering your printed kaftan over a timeless white tee and denim skirt to ensure it’s your outfits focal point!
For the ultimate cool-girl outfit, do like Katie and pair a leopard print midi skirt with black ankle boots, a slogan tee and must-have round sunnies. Her skirt is a purse-friendly dupe of one of Ganni’s designs and her could-be-designer jacket? A vinyl number from Monki.
For a more minimal take on the layering trend, opt for loose fabrics á la Jesse Alexandra to create a cool and breezy get-up. Accessorise with this season’s most in demand arm candy: a straw bag.
Florals will always be popular, regardless of season. While we love a vampy flower print number come winter, opt for a bolder take on the trend for summer. Go one step further and polish off your look by matching your accessories to your dress – we love Kelly’s Gucci-inspired loafers!
Cindy’s two-tone denim jeans will add an instant update to your outfit, season after season – whether you pair them with a strappy top and sandals for summer or a chunky knit and ankle boots for A/W.
If you’re not much of a girlie girl, toughen up dresses and skirts with a pair of biker boots like Natalie. Over the last few seasons, yellow has become more popular; especially for summer – if a vibrant hue is too ‘out there‘ for you, opt for a muted pastel tone instead for a more wearable take on the colourful trend.
