1 Deryane

First up we have the gorgeous Deryane modelling her favourite American Vintage  and Chlobo combo’s. Deryane is wearing the Ocean City Open Jacket in Carbon with a White Kalamazoo tee underneath. We’re all very jealous of Deryane’s stunning Tigers Eye bracelet stack and think it looks great teamed with a couple of the gold cute mini’s from the Cloud 9 collection. Chlobo’s necklaces are also great for layering together, as Deryane has done here, wearing the Gold Fine Chain (Make Peace Not War necklace) and the Tigers Eye necklace – both from the Cloud 9 Collection.

1 CharlotteNext up we have colourful Charlotte who has teamed her Massachussets Tank in Mint with this May Top in Carrot. The colours really compliment each other and are perfect for summer dressing, ideal for adding the wow factor to your wardrobe. We love how Charlotte is wearing her Coral Evil Eye bracelets by Chlobo with her Iconic silver bracelets and how she has layered up the different collections. Charlotte completes her outfit perfectly with her Haematite Rosary necklace with studded heart charm – PERFECTION!

1 Lia

We think Lia looks fabulous in this American Vintage printed scarf, it’s a great easy way to add some bold print into your summer wardrobe. Lia has teamed her scarf with this gorgeous Apple colour May Tee and a Massachussets tank in Candy underneath for an extra pop of colour – that is some super stylish layering Lia if we do say so ourselves! Lia has stacked her Chlobo Cute Charm bracelets with some chunky iconic’s to create a chic piece of arm candy – we love the combination of elephant charms and hearts!

1 Sam

Sam looks effortlessly stylish and ready for summer in this Cactus coloured Short Sleeve Jacksonville and is wearing hers with a Pebble Melange Masssachussets tank underneath for the ultimate AV layering impact! We love how Sam has mixed her Chlobo Silver Chain necklaces and think the peace and winged cross charm go really well together and suit her rock chic vibe. Sam’s chunky Chlobo bracelet stack mixes an array of cool charms – including the skull, peace and embossed cross. That is some awesome accessorising Sam!!!

1 AvalonWe love this bright Apple coloured Kalamazoo tee on Avalon, we think it really suits her skin tone and looks stunning worn with this Pebble Melange Massachussets Tank underneath. Made from a soft light weight Linen fabric it is perfect for summer dressing and the V shape neckline is really flattering. Avalon has layered her AV with the statement Chlobo Moss Rosary with Winged Heart charm and a super chunky silver stack. We love how the Small Pearl bracelet with Wing charm adds a feminine touch to her look.

1 Amy

Amy looks stunning in this American Vintage Fayettville Short Sleeve Top in Cherry. We love American Vintage’s range of printed tee’s but this has to be one of our favourites. We think Amy has layered her AV to perfection with a simple Massachussets Tank in pool underneath. This Chlobo Black Rosary necklace looks fab against the cherry printed top and her silver Chlobo stack completes her look effortlessly. I think we will all be trying this combo very soon!

1 jaime

Jaime is wearing the American Vintage Pat Jacket in Pearl with this cute Jesup Tee in Cobalt. To add an extra pop of colour Jaime has styled her Jesup Tee with a Massachussets tank in Peony underneath. We love the colour blocking effect Jaime has created by layering her AV pieces – a key trend this summer! To complete her outfit she is wearing the Chlobo Peace Haematite necklace and a chunky silver and haematite bracelet stack. We love how you just get a flash of her bracelets underneath the AV jacket sleeve. Effortlessly stylish!

    I love Lia’s look – the scarf looks great with the Candy tank underneath the Apple tee. Love the jewelry too.

  5. Edwige Robbins

    My favourite look is Charlotte’s. It is really simple but brought to live with the vibrant contrast of the tank and tee- perfect for bringing summer vibes to uk not so summery days!!! Her chlobo rosary just sets it off perfectly and the haematite beads just tie the darker jeans in with the whole look.

  6. Suzie Edwards

    I love Lia’s look. The colour combination makes me dream of sitting in the sun in Italy eating raspberry ripple and pistachio ice cream. The charm bracelets just bring it all together. It’s such a pretty summer look.

    Love Deryane’s and Jamie’s style combo. Great layering, textures and use of colour and addition of fab accessories. Deryane’s is my favourite. Have just ordered the Ocean City Open Jacket!!

  21. Lynne Slatter

    I like Jaime’s outfit best love the punch of cobalt blue against the white of the jacket. I love looks that are smart but really comfy

  22. Sabita

    I like Jaime’s look the best because she can transition from casual to semi-casual with the jacket thrown in in addition to colour blocking.

  23. Leanne

    Love Amy’s look! So versatile, could be worn to festivals, shopping trips, dinner out with friends. This photo stood out the most for me.
