Class of 2021…with the trending ‘Harvard’ sweatshirt, the streets look littered with Harvard grads. I’ve always adored a preppy American style and fell instantly in love with the Zara Harvard popping red sweatshirt. My style is vast, but I usually pick a dressy style over relaxed. Now of course, with a sweatshirt I am instantly inclined to pair the piece with blue or white jeans or joggers. But…having come across a stunning look in Vogue where the stylist mixed smart & casual perfectly by mixing a sweatshirt and a midi skirt, I fell in love!
Using the Vogue look as inspiration, I fled to the Zara skirt section where I found this killer midi black skirt with gold button detailing and ultra sassy side split. Tucking in the Harvard sweatshirt I loved the look; the skirt clinched in at the waist perfectly and added a chic aesthetic. Finished with black courts the outfit works perfectly for a city lunch break.
Back in early September I went on a staycation to Wells, as I explored the small boutique shops on the ‘sale rail’ I discovered this stunning white organza midi skirt from Miss Sugar. Shopping local has never been so important – if you’re visiting Wells a visit ‘Simply Norfolk’ 65 Staithe St is a must! Midi skirts are a stylish item that any trendy individual should own. As the weather was turning I instantly thought of my Grey Zara cropped jumper with puff sleeves and square neckline. Finished off with the Zara tan leather belt and cream Mango fashion wellies the final look has a sassy, yet sweet vibe, perfect for a warmer Winter day. When I first developed the concept for my fashion blog back in 2016, my first ever styled outfit for the blog was a midi white organza skirt and grey jumper. Fast-forward to 2020 and I am still a fan of the white skirt/grey jumper combo. Grey and white is an ultimate favourite of mine, it just always works!
Zara is my treasure chest for the latest trends and statement pieces. A knit skirt and jumper are my ultimate go-to for A/W each year. The cream midi chunky knit skirt fits in all the right places, its thickness gives it an expensive feel. The cropped charcoal extra thick jumper is my favourite autumn purchase, I’m totally obsessed with this elite style. I always find that cropped jumpers and tops are never cropped enough and fit at an awkward length with high-waisted skirts and trousers. This Zara knit is the perfect length! The turtle neck is cosy and the super stylish turn up cuff combine to create an effortlessly chic piece. Of-course I paired the look with my Mango fashion wellies and Gucci bag. Feminine chic personified!
