Weekly eBay round-up!

As promised, I'm back with this week's eBay round-up! This week I'm focusing on three different trends, Cobalt Blue, Dark Florals and Monochrome prints! I've picked out my favourite picks for each trend in the hope that you can get a good price!

Cobalt Blue:
I'm a big fan of blue, and where most people choose black as their go to colour to go with everything, I have an obsession with navy. I have to actively force myself not to automatically buy everything in navy blue. So a different shade of blue to shake things up is a welcome addition to my own wardrobe, how about yours? It's that electric blue shade which makes you stand out from the crowd, but is a colour that I personally think anyone can pull off, which of course makes it a winner!
Topshop Cobalt Blue Skater Dress Size 12 - Ends 18th August
Dorothy Perkins Cobalt Blue Pencil Dress Size 14 - Ends 18th August
Dorothy Perkins Cobalt Blue Wedges Size 6 - Ends 18th August
Atmosphere Cobalt Blue Blazer Size 8 - Ends 15th August

Dark Florals:
Dark Florals featuring Zara, New Look, Oasis and Topshop

Florals are big every spring and summer without fail, but taking the print through to Autumn/Winter can be a thorny business (cheesy pun totally intended, I couldn't resist). Dark Floral prints are on the trend alert this year and I think it's all in the style of print if you want to survive winter without looking like you missed the 'summer is over' memo. Think smaller ditsy prints rather than large florals and darker jewel tones rather than bright and pastel prints! If you're going to go for a larger print then the colour of the floral needs to be blend well with the overall colour scheme.

Monochrome Prints:
I mentioned last week that it's all about the black and white this winter, and particularly black and white prints! Geometric prints will be everywhere but for now a lot of the summer's prints such as florals and aztec, can be carried through to Autumn and Winter with a black and white colour scheme.
