Styling Hero Dresses and the Sports Luxe Trend with Next

CocosTeaParty Next Sports Luxe Trend Video

What better way to celebrate the end of the week (and the start of yet another long weekend, if you’re in the UK) than two new fashion videos? As I mentioned last month, I’ve teamed up with Next to show off the very best pieces from their Spring/Summer 2014 collection. And trust me, there are so many fashion gems waiting for you in Next stores right now.

First up we have my take on the tricky sports luxe trend. I had soooo much fun styling this video – it’s not a look I’d usually wear, but as I was putting the outfits together I realised it’s actually much more wearable than I thought. See if you agree…

And, of course, no wardrobe would be complete with a fabulous summer dress, and I’ve selected three key designs for you to choose from. There’s a pretty lace design for formal occasions, a denim shirtdress for weekends and a festival-friendly T-shirt style.

Find all of the product links listed below and leave a comment to let me know which looks are your favourites. I’m really interested to hear your thoughts on the pieces featured…

      Oooh did you get them? I bought a pair myself after filming this video. Wore them here –

      • I did, i was just really chuffed that i finally found a pair that looked decent on it, they weren’t as baggy as the joggers i’ve tried on in the past and very reasonably priced xxxx

    Super cute outfits. I really like the floral bomber in the second outfit of the sports luxe trend. xx

    Love the sleeveless jacket and joggers combi. Would never have thought to put them together, but it looks really good. Might have to call on my brother’s discount again…

    I am all about look 2, such a great look pairing the sleeveless jacket with the joggers! Love your videos, you were made for the camera Ella! X
