I have become an MV Insider – Monica Vinader jewellery pieces are feminine, quality and the epitome of craftsmanship. ‘Monica designs jewellery that empowers, uplifts and endures using only recycled gold vermeil, sterling silver and sustainably sourced natural gemstones, diamonds and pearls’ (MV Website).
The perfect gift, thank you or treat for someone special, or yourself 😉 – with a range of gold and silver bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings there is 100% a piece that you will love.
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!
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.
AW/21 fashion is finally back! Move over sweatpants and relax-wear, I am here for Parisian Chic. Brown/Beige/Camel are all trending shades. Faux-leather is extremely on trend this season; this faux-leather pleated skirt in the colour ‘whiskey’ is an all round statement piece. The layered pleat has a luxurious look, complimented perfectly by the oversized white poplin shirt with neck tie; the most perfect piece. Accessorising is one of my favourite aspects of Autumnal styling; my Gucci bag is my go-to and the wool camel beret is extremely en-vogue this season. Zara beige leather boots finish the look.
August is bringing us yet another heatwave, so get your bikinis at the ready! H&M is killing the game with their fashion right now…especially on the bikini front. Although a simple bikini style can be stunning, I LOVE a unique show stopping style. This bandeau style ruffled bikini top is such a flattering and unique shape. The bikini bottoms have a figure flatting V dip. Big floppy straw hats are a VIBE and create an extra chic beach look. This Zara oversized straw hat is a 10/10. Now…get me to the beach.
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.
Mango is a dream site for statement Midaxi styles. The Midaxi combines Midi & Maxi length. The length is ideal for an occasion where midi is too informal and maxi is too formal. Being tall it is a great option.
Blue and white stripe is a favourite of mine in the warmer months; it screams Summer holiday. The statement oversized cuff, combined with the white tie-belt detailing creates the beautiful Mary Poppins esque style! I styled the dress with tan, crocodile print courts to complete the look.
The British weather in March can be so confusing; one minute we get downpours and grey sky, the next unexpected rays of sunshine. This outfit is a fab look for this time of year. You can easily throw on a jacket or coat to suit the weather.
I’ve owned these Mango cream flowing trousers for a few years now and I just adore them. The quality, fit and length is perfect. Here I tucked the trouser into my cream Mango boots for a billowing effect. This styling technique is an effective way to wear long flowing trousers without the worry of the cuff getting dirty in wet weather.
The trousers look great with a crop style; it shows the tie waist belt detailing. This Zara pale pink shirt has a satin look which adds femininity. The balloon sleeve, collar and small button details turn this plain style into chic and the gold Zara body chain necklace is a great accessory addition.
