I had been desperate to wear my H&M midi silk skirt for as long as I can remember, but had no occasion that was appropriate; so when I was invited to a Christening it was the first item to spring to mind. I wanted something formal, yet chic and you cannot beat a black and white outfit with a pop of dusty pink.
Knits are a great pairing with satin skirts, but for an occasion I wanted something more dressy. My black H&M double breasted blazer with gold button detailing was a must. The wide lapels and button formation are just beautiful. I chose a white satin crop top to peep out of the blazer; giving an overall elegant aesthetic. I finished the whole look with dainty dusty pink satin heels with ankle strap.
This cropped blazer by COLLUSION with cropped length, check design and shoulder pad detailing is my GO-TO blazer this A/W. I paired the blazer with relaxed, low-rise loose blue jeans and a brown satin lingerie-look crop top. The outfit nips in and fits in all the right places! I finished off the look with my tan Topshop cowboy boots; ideal for lunch/relaxed dinner or browsing the shops.
For a more work appropriate killer-look the matching trousers complete the set. The wide leg trouser is perfect for work; comfortable and chic. These COLLUSION trousers look great drawn in with a belt; I styled here with my signature Gucci belt.
Bringing the drama! A statement blouse is a must-have piece in your wardrobe. This ASOS DESIGN smock shirt has a chic oversized fit, wrap front with tie fastening and stunning blouson sleeves. This piece works with almost any choice of bottoms, but I prefer combining the top with a plain block colour. Here I styled the blouse with a white denim mini-skirt and head-turning metallic gold Gucci platforms. Layer an autumnal coat to counteract the chilly wind.
Turn it up! An oversized turn-up gives a fashionable edge – a look that I am here for! These Zara straight-leg camel trousers with the wide turn-up hem fit like a glove. A piece that can be styled for work, brunch, lunch…the lot! I’m still grasping on to white pieces as the transitional fashion season edges in; this broderie backless top from Lost Ink is to-die-for. The puff sleeve and bow necktie are fab details. My go-to early-autumnal colour is beige; perfect with white, cream or black. While the weather has been grey for as many days as I can remember, at least the rain is currently at bay – although I may have just jinxed that one… While the weather behaves I am getting as much wear out of my mules as possible – the biggest footwear trend of 2021. Get your turn-up on!
The rise of the denim midi-skirt. Being a tall girl, skirts and dresses can cause issues in the Spring/Summer months, but trending this year is the midi-skirt – the perfect solution to my long-leg issues! This ASOS midi denim skirt is a killer piece, the length, colour, material and tie-waist detailing combine to create the most figure flattering skirt on the market. Here I styled the skirt with both a simple ecru ribbed crop top and a tucked off-white sweat, finished with high-top trainers for a relaxed look. The skirt could be dressed up too – a tulle or silk crop top with heeled sandals would create a fab dressy option. Stylish, chic & simple.
The biggest trend for summer 2021 – crop tops and blazers…the ultimate going out look! As lockdown eases and we can be reunited with our friends (outdoors at first) a jacket is a MUST! A chic blazer is an essential piece that you need to have in your wardrobe. The Mango green faux leather trousers fit like a glove, they fit tightly to the waist and loosely to the leg. The cream and sage green tones are perfect for Spring. I accessorised with a gold chain belt and oversized gold square earrings to spice up the aesthetic. Here I styled the look with my cream chunky Mango boots for a relaxed vibe, but heeled sandals or mules would look fab too!
ASOS is killing the game with their dressed-down looks. Loungewear to wear out is HOT right now! The pandemic has allowed many to have a PJ day everyday and most are not ready to get out of that any time soon; the perfect solution is loungewear that can be worn out. This cream sweat mini dress with a high zip neckline and ribbed effect is where comfort meets cool. Paired with my favourite cream Mango boots the look is a relaxed winner!
A British Winter guarantees minus temperatures. I love snuggling up in a dressing gown, watching a new Netflix series and binging on gingerbread lattes. I decided after spending more time at home than ever this year to treat myself to a new snuggly house robe. Miraculously as I opened up the ASOS New In page this ‘Cream Yeti Robe’ popped up. It was safe to say the robe was in my basket within seconds. I sized up for an oversized, comfy fit. This yeti robe is the ultimate relaxer, miles more luxurious than any dressing gown I’ve owned before. You could easily get away with wearing this robe a coat out too! The maxi length, waist belt, huge pockets, thick and fluffy features combine to make this angelic piece.
A navy pinstripe power suit is a LOOK! I’ve always adored a tailored female suit and this ASOS Design navy pinstripe 2-piece suit certainly commands attention. The oversized pinstripe blazer is a unique extended length and the waist belt wraps around twice to cinch in the waist, creating a feminine waistline. The trousers are the perfect length; having long legs is a blessing but a curse when trying to find trousers long enough. These trousers brush my ankle lengthening the leg. I styled the suit with ASOS patent beige heels with ankle-tie. The wide lapel and pocket details makes the suit.
This cream faux-fur jacket and cream ASOS faux-fur bucket hat are a dream match. The H&M cream jacket is incredibly thick, and the cropped arm length is super cute. The jacket has no collar, which is a unique style feature, I normally dislike no collar on a coat/jacket, but here it works. The jacket is only £34.99; however, it looks and feels much more luxurious. The concealed hook and eye fastening is an elegant feature. The ASOS bucket hat is so darling, I love the current bucket hat trend! Paired together the jacket and hat combo calls for a chilly winter day; which is a daily occurrence in the UK. I wore dotty tights, a velvet mini-skirt and thigh-high leather boots with the faux-fur pieces. I finalised the look with a genuine Burberry silk scarf; the beige and black tones tied the whole look together. A faux-fur moment!
