Winter Pastels

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

I can’t believe as I’m writing this, that this time next week it will be Christmas Day! Where on earth is the time going?!

This was such a different look for me to try, but I found this skirt which is so glittery in the best rainbow way (annoyingly hard to see in the photographs) and I wanted to style it up! Pastels in winter work so well and I thought this would be quite a fun day to evening look by adding in this sequin handbag.

Obviously you could team this skirt with bare legs but frankly it’s too cold and I hate my legs, so I opted for tights instead! I’m just going to call it granny chic 😉

So Tonal

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

This look started off from this incredible teddy bear jacket; I loved the colour and texture and I hadn’t really seen anything else like it. Tonal looks are in this season and the mixture of the orangey browns and nudes works so well to create an Autumn look.

Can I also just take a minute for this snake necklace too which I literally purchased the second I spotted it! I love anything that’s unique and it’s going to be perfect with high neck tops and knitwear this season.

Weekend Casual

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

Sometimes I love a casual outfit perfect for a Sunday stroll in the park and comfy for chilling at home and this is perfect.The major thing is the jumper which I am in love with! Just because it’s a casual look, it doesn’t mean it has to be boring 😉

The jumper comes super oversized and I’m actually wearing an XSmall (possibly for the first time in my entire life) so not only does it make you feel great about yourself but it looks amazing too!

I recently discovered these jeggings and they are so comfortable and easy to get on. I really like the tone of blue that they are in as they’re not too bright and more of a true denim colour in my eyes which is hard to find in jeggings. They’re so stretchy that I think I could have gone down a size, but I’m impatient and I just wanted to wear them too much!

AW16 Trend Series – Sports Luxe

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

So for the final part of my trend series, I wanted to look at Sports Luxe which was a huge AW16 trend at Louis Vuitton, Vetements and Anya Hindmarch.

 

There are so many ways to wear this look as you can see above and I decided to create a more relaxed outfit, (I don’t think I could’ve pulled off the oversized puffer jacket..!!) combining the wet look leggings and metallic accessories to add the luxe element.

AW16 Trend Series – Grunge Spirit

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

This is the second part of my AW16 trend series and this time I’m talking you through ‘Grunge Spirit’. I had so much fun styling this look; I think it’s partly due to me reverting back to my emo days 😉

This trend incorporates everything 90’s, chokers, tartan, leopard print, brooches and layering. I wanted to give a girly edge to my look but you could also style it with ripped jeans, a rock band tee and leather jacket. I have linked some other alternatives below. My inspiration off the catwalk for this trend was from Burberry, Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham and Prada.

AW16 Trend Series – Granny’s Attic

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone!

I think it’s safe to say that it’s 100% autumn now! The leaves are turning orange and I can see my breath in the mornings so I wanted to take a look at 3 of the fashion trends that are going to be pretty big this Autumn/Winter. Obviously this is a trend series so it’ll be based on the looks that were on the designer catwalks, but I always believe in styling yourself how you want to and this is just a rough guide of how I would wear some of the pieces from each trend. Of course you can always just pick one or two items and mix it with your own style to create a fresh new season look.

The trend I’m going to look at today is ‘Granny’s Attic’, it’s basically a mix of textures and colours to create a vintage twist on a modern outfit. Lots of the textures include ruffles, velvet, embroidery and sequins and this trend was spotted on the catwalks of Gucci, Miu Miu and Christopher Kane.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I loved styling this look as I do like to wear some unusual and eclectic pieces. Like I said earlier rather than wearing a lot of the pieces together like I have to give you a feel of the trend, you could take the boots, bag or the top etc and add it alongside some of the items you already have in your wardrobe and it’ll give it an AW16 fashion boost!
