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!

BEIGE BERET

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.

HARVARD SWEATSHIRT

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.

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.

MIDAXI STYLE

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.

& OTHER STORIES GREEN MAXI DRESS

& Other Stories has the perfect Spring piece. Midi, fashion forward and green; the perfect dress combination. I am a big fan of thin-knit dresses, the ideal throw on piece for unpredictable British Spring weather. The fit of this dress is impeccable; it tightens at the waist, has a fashionable keyhole neckline and a chic mid-maxi length. The ribbed and thin-knit effect adds quality to the piece. Here I stayed casual with Mango cream chunky boots.

DENIM MIDI-SKIRT

The rise of the denim midi-skirt. Being a tall girl, skirts and dresses can cause issues in the Spring/Summer months, but trending this year is the midi-skirt – the perfect solution to my long-leg issues! This ASOS midi denim skirt is a killer piece, the length, colour, material and tie-waist detailing combine to create the most figure flattering skirt on the market. Here I styled the skirt with both a simple ecru ribbed crop top and a tucked off-white sweat, finished with high-top trainers for a relaxed look. The skirt could be dressed up too – a tulle or silk crop top with heeled sandals would create a fab dressy option. Stylish, chic & simple.

VARSITY SPRING

The sweatshirt dress is a must for Spring! As the weather FINALLY begins to break into dress weather, a sweatshirt dress is a great transitional piece before the pretty Summer dresses take reign. Statement red is a non-stop trend for me; I always have one or two statement red pieces lined up, whether it be Summer or Winter. This New Look sweatshirt dress is an absolute winner. The American High-School Varsity theme is a VIBE, a look that I’ve always loved. While we are still adjusting coming out of lockdown the comfort of a sweatshirt dress is a great way of getting out of sweatpants and back into the world. Paired with white Zara high-top trainers you cannot go wrong.

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.

FAUX LEATHER GREEN TROUSERS

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!
