At last Sunday’s Business of Beauty Awards – see all the photos and shtyle over yonder – there were outfits aplenty from one of our favourite Irish online stores, as well as having their own pop-up shop in Temple Bar,?Folkster. From bright pink culottes paired with a delicate cream crop-top to full-length embellished gowns – worn by our very own Liz Dwyer – if it’s something different you’re after, you need look no further.
Having spent a little too much time browsing through their website (all in the name of research, we swear!), we’ve put together our top picks from this sartorial hub. Clicking fingers and credit cards at the ready!
Pink Culottes – Whether you dress these up for a wedding with heels and a crop-top or play them down with a soft knit top, these will brighten up your day in every sense of the word. The best part? You’re getting a major wardrobe statement piece here for just €69.
Again, this top could be dollied up for a formal occasion or paired with your favourite skinny jeans and killer heels for a hot date. The embellishment gives you femininity while the open back provides a sexy edge. €89.
In all our highstreet perusing, we’ve yet to come across a guna as eye-catching as this. Beat that feeling of looking the same as everybody else at your party and opt for this black and white dress with embroidery detail. €129.
So you want to wear a full-length dress, but you don’t want to dress like a bridesmaid? This boho, floaty black number from Folkster ticks all the boxes. It’s laid-back with your desired length. Black metallic has never worked so well with our favourite trend this season – pleats. €69.
But if you really do want to go all out, but be comfortable at the same time, we absolutely ADORE this navy wrap dress. You can go entirely backless – super classy with the high neckline – or keep your skin under wraps; the choice is yours. This Tara wrap dress costs €169 but for that price, it will see you through many a formal event.
Sometimes it’s required that we wear nude to tie in with our chosen ensemble, but most nude shoes are dull enough to send you to sleep. These ones, however, with a chunky gold heel, add some much needed personality to your muted tootsies. They’re only €29. Yes, TWENTY NINE EURO. Bargain.
And lastly, for a bit of vintage sparkle, this sage green pendant for €9.99 will jazz up your Monday / Tuesday / any day blues.
