Summer 2018 fashion forecast with The Luxe Link

August 9, 2017

Spring is nearly here! With just weeks of ‘winter’ to go,  it’s almost time to pack away the coats and cardigans.

Shadowing the current styles from US and Europe, we’re in for a vibrant season. Plenty of florals, feminine silhouettes, off the shoulder cuts and comfortable t-shirt dresses clinged perfectly around the waist.

Whilst Australia struggles to keep up with all the latest brands and availability of pieces there are now more options than ever to bypass these obstacles. One way to do this is through personal shopping services. I recently tried The Luxe Link – a specialist service focusing on luxury brands and giving you access to America’s on-line and traditional retailers, as well as a fashion consultant to assist you with your purchases! The company is based in New York City and offers you their connections to department stores like Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman and many more but their brand promise is to source anything as long as it complies with shipping regulations!

Personally,  I’ve had multiple instances where I found myself frustrated at the realisation that the item/s I was lusting after weren’t available in Australia and had limitations on global delivery. Here’s where The Luxe Link comes in! They will find your item, purchase it and deliver it straight to your door.

To makes things even better, there is no minimum order and the sales team work hard to minimize the sales taxes that often come with US purchases.

While this service may sound expensive, The Luxe Link are extremely transparent and only charge you 10% commission plus a regular Fed Ex shipping fee. This is SO amazing because if you require multiple products across different boutiques, department stores or designers – it can all be combined under one easy fee and shipping cost. Plus, you get an knowledgeable and friendly Fashion Consultant to help you along the way and do all your running around!

So, after hearing about this awesome service I jumped into the fashion time machine and ordered a few items straight from the US Spring/Summer 2017 fashion ‘hot list’. I am also super excited to share with you a coupon exclusive to my readers! Use the code CHICONTHERUN for a $50 credit towards your order!  This coupon required a minimum $200 spend on goods, shipping and delivery fees are excluded.

So, here are my top 3 picks, helpfully coordinated by my Fashion Consultant, perfect for the upcoming sunshine!

The summer tracksuit
Being comfortable in a tracksuit was a key fashion statement this winter. Don’t let summer get in the way of your comfort by simply switching to a cropped summer version! Many brands have jumped on the trend with Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and Adidas making their version of the comfy coord sets. Wear the coordinated set with lace-up sneakers and a cap for a fun, easy look.


Off-the-shoulder dress
These cute little numbers have been making it big this summer in the US! Off-the-shoulder dresses are flirty, cute, and really versatile, and I kind of think it’s a trend that’s gong to stick around for a while. So why not embrace it? It’s not hard to wear these dresses – they make a statement on their own, so they really don’t need much else.



I feel like you can’t see a candid pic of a celeb running errands without spotting a pair of slides. Givenchy, Fenty, Versace, Gucci almost every high-fashion brand brought out their version. Which one will be yours? Style these with a distressed pair of jeans and a sweater for a supermodel off-duty look!

Don’t forget to use the code CHICONTHERUN for $50 credit towards your Luxe Link order over $200! Happy Shopping!
