Circus Circus

CircusCircusThis Trend Spotting, Circus Circus, is my prediction as the next big thing. It hasn't really been styled in a complete look in stores yet, but there are tonnes of individual pieces around to help you compile your own take on it.

Think velvet fabric, bowler hats, statement blazers, playsuits and frilly blouses, all ranging in a fabulous colour palette of maroons; black and white stripes; harlequin print; rich purple lavender; and, red and black with gold trimming.

Circus Circus is coming, and it's a look you can have a lot of fun with! Get inspired with some of my top picks, styled by yours truly!

Iron Fist - Love Me Now Lace Up Plat Pink

Iron Fist - Love Me Now Lace Up Plat Pink

One of my total favourites that hits the trend Circus Circus. This adorable wee bootie just screams fun, fabulous, and with the pink/red colour combination oh-so-perfect clash, just a touch of fierce for the person wearing these too! 

The chunky heel and the lace up front add to the character. 

Irregular Choice - Tea Cup Red

Irregular Choice - Tea Cup Red

The shape of this Irregular Choice bootie is just perfect for the Circus Circus trend, in particular, the Velvet Vixen or Ring Master subtrends. 

Like most Irregular Choice shoes, there's a lot of detail involved with this pair. It's got a fur heel, suede body, star lining, leather detailing, fringe trimming and then top it off with a cute lace-up front!

Iron Fist - Lolita Love Platform White

Iron Fist - Lolita Love Platform White

A bit more girly from Iron Fist with this polka dot bootie and that gorgeous over-sized flower off the side, but they bring back a bit of edge with the leopard print finish around the platform and heel.

 

Another shoe that's definitely going to get some looks! Now what to wear it with... 

Rupaul - Patriotic Pump Red Blue Silver

Rupaul - Patriotic Pump Red Blue Silver

This patriotic number from Rupaul is without doubt a statement shoe. The glittery sparkle finish and the star pattern make it appropriate for the Circus Circus trend, but this shoe will extend into many others too. 

The wee buckle strap keeps it girly and pair it with a short skirt to keep it feminine and cute.

Chockers Shoes - Lombardi

Chockers Shoes - Lombardi

Because nothing says Circus Circus like a Harlequin print... These heels from Chockers shoes are a fab addition to the wardrobe giving a fun Alice in Wonderland feel to any outfit. 

The monochrome colouring and the print design make it really versatile. 

Chinese Laundry - Touch Down Black Micro Suede

Chinese Laundry - Touch Down Black Micro Suede

Suede normally makes for a killer heel, but although this is claimed to be 'black' suede, it looks to me to be a deep rich colour of purple plum, and for that reason it is total style heaven. 

The metallic studding detail down the back of the heel is in one word - striking.

TaylorSays - Lookie Red

TaylorSays - Lookie Red

Guilty as charged... another Taylor Says heel, but what can I say - this chick has some seriously style, and so many of her shoes are just bang on trend! 

This little number is gorgeous - a bit of bling, a bit of sparkle, what's not to love. 

Too Fast - Mustache Heel

Too Fast - Mustache Heel

Because nothing says Circus Circus like a moustache... right? 

Well, it hits the Bearded Beauty sub-trend of Circus Circus at least, and this shoe is just adorable - one for the girls, but one that'll have the boys saying "Hey, awesome shoes!" and you know when your shoes get attention from the boys, you're onto a winner. 

Just Fab - Ghislaine Pink

Just Fab - Ghislaine Pink

I must say, Just Fab are coming out with more and more heels that give me shoe-lust, and this is no exception. The colour combination is perfect for hitting Circus Circus; that oh-so-perfect clash of pink and red, and then throw in a dash of purple to keep things interesting. 

A variety of textures and mixed geometry of shapes add even more!

TaylorSays - Brossie Red White

TaylorSays - Brossie Red White

Simon Says... No wait! Taylor Says, and Taylor Says buy these right now! This heel is perfect to hit the Circus Circus trend and funky enough to be a statement heel on any night out. 

Loving the patriotic, Captain America vibe that runs right through (in traditional Taylor Says fashion) to the sole. 

Penny Loves Kenny - Norah Wine Multi

Penny Loves Kenny - Norah Wine Multi

Penny Loves Kenny does it again, and when I saw this heel on the hunt for some pumps that would hit the mark for Circus Circus, I almost couldn't believe how perfect it was. 

The varied shape pattern and colour combination just screams carnival, circus and come one, come all! 

Too Fast - Spine Boot Freakshow

Too Fast - Spine Boot Freakshow

If you haven't come across Too Fast before, I suggest you take a look at their collection because if you're anything like me and like ecletic shoes, then Too Fast is for you! 

This spine-tingling number is fascinating, funky and fabulous.

Iron Fist - Bow Me Heels

Iron Fist - Bow Me Heels

A slightly out of the Iron Fist box girly number, this shoe is in one word...adorable! The little loveheart pattern detail is so cute, and then the oversized pink bows - total winner!

I would style this up with something that's going to be extra feminine - a little floaty skirt, or some cute shorts (show of those pins!), but in a soft fabric.
