SATIN SKIRT & BLAZER

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.

THE ULTIMATE BLAZER

A black blazer is an ESSENTIAL piece for any wardrobe. Always on trend, always chic! This H&M blazer has wide lapels, gold buttons and a flattering tailored fit. A classic look I have always loved is a white shirt dress with black accessories; here I added heart print tights, black court heels and the trendy blazer. Finally, a classic red lip and I’m out the door!

SLEEVE DRAMA

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.

TENNIS PLAY

The tennis skirt style has made a MAJOR come-back. Think circa 2012 American Apparel Tumblr fashion; the tennis skirt stormed through and now its back. Whether lockdown has allowed us to re-connect with our pre-teen roots or Wimbledon is inspiring not only sports fans, but also the fashion sect…I’m here for it!

This Zara dress is an incredibly flattering, fashionable style. Take the tennis skirt and combine it with a classic white cotton shirt; perfection. The wrap over top and loose fitting skirt, drawn in at the waist is the epitome of figure flattering. I styled the dress with a thick tan belt and dainty tan sandals; the ultimate brunching/lunching look.

WORK ATIRE

Work attire can be the hardest to style. Trying to find a balance between professionalism and fashionability is a pretty difficult task. Midi lengths are my go-to for work; sophistication and comfort is key. This Zara black midi skirt with gold button detailing is a perfect piece for work, but can be styled for an evening look. 

Step 1 the midi skirt complete. Step 2 take a classic white shirt, but make it fashion. The organza material and statement pocket additions of this Zara shirt turns a traditional white cotton style into a chic must-have piece.

Either black mules, black sandals or black kitten heels complete the look.

POWERFUL PINK

Powerful pink, oversized puff sleeve and a unique neckline; this top is the perfect sassy style. Bubblegum pink looks insane against white, here I styled the top with white shorts to minimise distraction from the gorgeous piece. The cropped length combined with the oversized sleeve is extremely flattering. The neckline has fastenings if wanted, but here I wore the top undone for a more casual look. Tan braid mules look incredible against the popping pink and white.

ROCKING RED FITNESS

Working out has never looked so good. After all the goal of fitness is to look good; that’s why this OhPolly Bo and Tee workout set is so good. I usually struggle with legging length due to having super long legs, also most leggings are awfully see-through! These knock spots off of other styles I have tried; they have a double thickness so there is no transparency and the length of the bottoms were pretty good, especially considering OhPolly length is usually hit and miss for me as a tall girl.

I adore the rocking red colour, it’s super bright and encouraging. The wrap over style of the top made me feel secure while it looked super stylish. I enjoy going for a speed walk so this set is perfect when you want to look nice but feel suitable for exercise. The cropped length of the top is complimented greatly by the high waisted legging. Now, I must get back to the gym for a spin class because this set is so beautiful.
