I had been desperate to wear my H&M midi silk skirt for as long as I can remember, but had no occasion that was appropriate; so when I was invited to a Christening it was the first item to spring to mind. I wanted something formal, yet chic and you cannot beat a black and white outfit with a pop of dusty pink.
Knits are a great pairing with satin skirts, but for an occasion I wanted something more dressy. My black H&M double breasted blazer with gold button detailing was a must. The wide lapels and button formation are just beautiful. I chose a white satin crop top to peep out of the blazer; giving an overall elegant aesthetic. I finished the whole look with dainty dusty pink satin heels with ankle strap.
Work attire can be the hardest to style. Trying to find a balance between professionalism and fashionability is a pretty difficult task. Midi lengths are my go-to for work; sophistication and comfort is key. This Zara black midi skirt with gold button detailing is a perfect piece for work, but can be styled for an evening look.
Step 1 the midi skirt complete. Step 2 take a classic white shirt, but make it fashion. The organza material and statement pocket additions of this Zara shirt turns a traditional white cotton style into a chic must-have piece.
Either black mules, black sandals or black kitten heels complete the look.
ASOS is killing the game with their dressed-down looks. Loungewear to wear out is HOT right now! The pandemic has allowed many to have a PJ day everyday and most are not ready to get out of that any time soon; the perfect solution is loungewear that can be worn out. This cream sweat mini dress with a high zip neckline and ribbed effect is where comfort meets cool. Paired with my favourite cream Mango boots the look is a relaxed winner!
I always love pink, but this bubblegum pink shade is extra beautiful. This ASOS dress combines the bubblegum pink with satin to create the most darling design. The midi length, loose flowing skirt, long sleeve, unique neckline, cut out back and bow tie back feature forms a gorgeous aesthetic. The distinctive cowl neck and layered shoulder fabric gives a vintage look to the modern dress. I adore a bow as you all know! This oversized bow tie gives a decorative layer to the plain design. White tie-ankle sandals and a blush make-up look complete the pretty in pink vibe.
Although currently we can’t go out, everyone is itching for a dress up and boogie. I’ve felt completely deflated about going-out dress styles. They’re all similar and there was nothing edgy with newness, until…Zara released this teal, ruched detail, shoulder padded, faux leather dress! The teal leather colouring is incredibly rare, in fact I’ve never seen a dress like it and the style is so distinctive against average dresses. Being 5ft 8 and having long legs it’s problematic to find dresses that are long enough, this length however is flirty, yet modest. I swapped my signature curls for a tight, poker bun to contrast against the voluminous shoulders. Adding my Primark off-white sandals, the evening look was complete. When cocktails can be sipped again, I will be wearing this dress.
Who knew getting married could look so chic. Of-course if Villanelle is getting married, it’s going to be in style. Not only did the loveable assassin wear the controversial choice of a suit, but layered a mesh bodysuit and sensual bra underneath, finishing the look off with a Loewe brooch and killer heels…
I thought the look was phenomenal. The perfect look for when you want to blow peoples socks off. The bra is a H&M black and cream lace style, the mesh bodysuit prettylittlething, the black culottes are a Zara classic; the flawless fit and elegant flow, contrast impeccably against the close-fitting bodysuit. A black tux blazer pulls the look together, while the pointed black shoes with bow detailing adds a precious style to the edgy look. To finalise the look, I added statement diamanté branch earrings, accentuated even more by the scraped back ponytail. Slick.
