Zara knits are the one this Winter! The knit vest is perhaps the leading trend this Winter. These two stunning knits were my favourites on the market. Knowing this trend was looming I was checking New In on my favourite sites every day! Finally, Zara released two matchless designs. I love following trends but putting my own twist on them too. I adore green and this shade is particularly unique. I fell totally in love with the unique design; the lettuce sleeve, stitch detailing and high neckline are all details that create the sweetest design. The cropped fit adds a unique aesthetic to the jumper style. Styled over the top of a Zara midi shirt dress with cream boots; the look is an ultimate Winter vibe. The camel cable-knit sweater vest with frills is another flawless design. The oversized fit and V neckline are beautiful details. I was planning on sending one knit back, however I just couldn’t decide which design to keep so settled on both! To finish off the classic fit I added my Zara chunky gold bust necklace with chain. J’adore sweater vests.
Leather look pants are a must-have for AW20. I always have multiple pairs of faux-leather trousers to alternate during the autumnal season. These Zara croc-print faux leather trousers are so hot! Animal prints are all the rage this season; these trousers are a great way to rock the animal style with a muted aesthetic. I paired this staple item with a Zara white frill-collar cropped shirt, vintage black velvet blazer, cream Mango fashion wellies and a Zara black statement belt with gold highlights. This monochrome look is chic and elegant – a look I crave for this season!

1 Puffball skirt, wedges and a white shirt. This half 80’s inspired style is a summer stand-out! Puffball skirts are so flattering. This Zara taupe voluminous skirt with paperbag-style waist and adjustable drawstrings is a key piece. Paired with the white Zara cut-out shirt, against neutral the summer style palette is aesthetic. The cropped style of the shirt compliments the mid waist height of the skirt. The white wedges add height, finishing off the look.

Villanelle has the crown for the queen of spring/summer fashion. Her audacious, arrogant style is ironic due to her job title…yet that fact makes it more attractive. Riding on a motorcycle to her next mission, the confident anti-heroine heroine steps off in denim shorts, a ruffle shirt and biker boots; iconic! The simplest combination, yet it looks wonderfully tasteful.
Channelling my inner Villanelle (style wise, not personality wise!) I styled my relaxed Zara blue denim shorts, with my Mumma’s vintage chiffon, cream ruffle shirt with pussy bow and off-white Gortex Converse boots. The chicness of the tight-fit of the shorts, combined with the loose ruffle shirt billowing out is my favourite look for SS/20.

Metallic is the Autumn must-have! Glossy clothing stands out amongst the Autumn dullness and transitions flawlessly into Winter too. These Zara gold trousers are so distinctive, perfect for someone who loves obscure styles…ME! The best thing about these outrageous trousers is they can be styled for evening or daytime. Here I’ve styled a daytime outfit; a simple black knit with gold button detailing, black velvet blazer and black sock boots – streamlined and sassy. This metallic style works best with plain block colouring, so the other clothing doesn’t distract from the statement trouser. For an evening look style with a black silk bralette or black bodysuit with tie ankle sandals. The trousers would also work with a warm knit and block trainers.

JACKET – VINTAGE
The 90’s are back! Big baggy jeans are the THING right now. Every fashion brand is releasing a pair of the trendy jean style. I absolutely love the relaxed aesthetic, making outfits look chilled and stylish. I bought this particular pair from Zara, in a dark wash; perfect for the transitional time from Autumn to Winter. I paired a man shirt from NEXT with the jeans, tying the shirt to create femininity and I unfolded the cuffs for a laidback look. I clinched in my waist with the Gucci belt, to contrast against the loose leg of the jean. I styled my western style, tan boots, to add height and a touch of chic! The look can easily be styled with dad trainers or heeled sandals, depending on the vibe you are feeling. The jeans would work well with crop woollen jumpers too, for a chillier day.

My go to shoes at the moment are these Zara Biker Boots…they go with everything! At £89.99 the boots are not cheap however the real leather material and quality are definitely price worthy. The detail on the boots is exquisite with rows of pearl decorated strips with buckle fastening, silver stud detail on the back, chunky sole and a lace up style. Not only did they survive Berlin, where I walked miles everyday, they are also extremely comfortable and incredibly stylish. It’s an awkward time of year for fashion; the Spring/Summer18 styles are hitting the high street and with typical British weather you cannot predict when you can rock your new styles. These boots are perfect for temperamental weather. Here I styled them with blue jeans (Zara), a black ribbed top with pearl shoulder detail (Zara), cropped cream jacket and a black baker boy hat (H&M). The pearl embellishment on the boots compliments the cream of the fur as well as matching the pearl embellishment on the simple black top. These boots will carry me through the summer too, adding a grungy look to a feminine summer outfit. The best part about these boots – an ingenious back zip to allow ease in putting on and removing the shoe instead of the struggle of tying and buckling each time. Overall an INSANE buy.

Happy New Year! I wanted to start this post with a huge thank you to all of my followers for supporting me and taking interest in my posts. Fashion is an absolute love of mine and there’s nothing more rewarding than the proof of my blog captivating visitors. The first post to kickoff 2018 is this LASULA ‘Green Fur’ jacket. I’m loving the widespread use of unusual colours in fashion. The deep green of the faux fur is an eye-catcher – a colour that I adore. The green tone is perfectly paired with an all-black outfit. The lightness of the fur fibres allows the material to flow aesthetically in the wind, revealing the multitude of tones of the green jacket. The jacket can see you through glamorous events in the early wintery months of this year or can be dressed down for a casual chic style. Wearing faux fur adds charm and an element of excitement to an outfit.
GREEN FAUX FUR JACKET
Disney is “The Happiest Place on Earth” they say and I agree one hundred per cent! Standing at the bottom of Main Street with Sleeping Beauty’s Castle on view in the distance and a perfect blue sky above – all of my childhood memories come flooding back. Disney has it’s very own sights, sounds and smells and I never get tired of them. It’s no surprise then that a trip to Disneyland Paris was the perfect way to celebrate the end of A-levels. When it comes to styling and outfit for a day in the park, comfort is paramount but I didn’t want to sacrifice style for comfort entirely. Zara sale again gifted a perfect white cotton top; loosely fitted with an elasticated bardot neckline, a cute tie back and this season’s obligatory statement sleeve. I paired this with an adorable sage green, frill bottomed, double layer mini (not Minnie!) from H&M. Of course, no outfit for a day in the park would be complete without a pair of comfy trainers and a pair of sparkly Minnie Ears!
