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.
This navy shorts power suit is a boss look. The cropped style blazer is a la mode for 2021, while the military style metal buttons is a timeless aesthetic. The lapel collar and double breasted fastening is mega stylish, while the navy Bermuda shorts with a side zip fastening gives a flawless front design. Tan heeled sandals compliment the sophisticated style.
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!
Faux fur is a favourite of mine in the Winter, so I instantly fell in love with this Zara tote. The cream extra-fluffy fabric is so soft and luxurious. The seam detailing and oversized fit of the bag are the perfect details and the long faux fur handles look great thrown over the shoulder. The zip fastening and faux leather bottom panel make the bag appear expensive. Styled here with an all-black Winter outfit the maxi tote looks utterly gorgeous!
As you all know, I LOVE a midi knit dress. A one-piece item that you can just throw on is a dream. This utterly gorgeous ASOS knit has a cream colour and is the perfect midi length. The bottom split and oversized sleeves are so stylish and add a bit of spice to the staple item. I adore cream in the Winter, it adds a bit of brightness to the otherwise dull British weather. Here I styled an oversized tan blazer over the dress. The thick knit dress is great for the milder Winter days, the blazer adds that needed extra warmth. I finalised the look with my Mango cream boots, ASOS gold chain necklace and chunky gold chain bracelet. J’adore a knit.
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!
Autumn suiting is a sure way to stand out! Whether you’re going to work, lunch or for day-drinks a suit is an edgy option and can be styled to ‘suit’ any occasion! Masculine chic to its fullest. When I wear this H&M x Giuliva Heritage collaborative collection suit I feel powerful. The single-breasted camel twill jacket has a dramatic wide lapel and feminine aesthetic, finished with tortoise shell decorative buttons and a lavish striped lining. The ankle-length twill tailored trousers fit like a dream. As I have previously said my height makes trouser shopping a strain, but this shape is truly perfect. H&M collaborations are incredible; they team up with a luxury company to produce more accessible products. You can really feel and see the difference in quality in this collection. The ecru calf-length coat made with Italian premium wool is refined personified; the wide lapels, deep pockets and tie-belt details are dreamy. I styled a Zara shirt bodysuit and my father’s grey twill tie for the ultimate mannish vibe. The Zara camel felt fedora and tan leather belt accessorise the suit. This look is utterly Voguish; an autumn-must-have style.
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!
When I spied this zebra print dress on Zara I fell in love. The tasteful midi length and daring green satin fabric are great for the upcoming season. Prints are so stylish; this particular print is incredibly different to the average animal style. The loose fit with tie-belt is classy, the perfect look for afternoon tea. I paired the shirt dress with my cream Mango boots for a more relaxed vibe.
