Bottomless brunch to a classy cocktail evening; the return of evening style. The exhilaration of trying booking the best restaurant/bar around is a stress that I can definitely deal with! Peeling myself out of relax gear and into this dress of dreams is a revelation. This Zara metallic silver cowl neck number is a keeper! The loose fit compliments the ‘mini’ length, while the cowl neck adds a fashionable twist. The low cowl effect and tie neck creates drama in the back. Paired with my Gucci GG gold heeled loafer and gold falling leaf earrings the look is complete. Now…PASS THE CHAMPAGNE!
Turn it up! An oversized turn-up gives a fashionable edge – a look that I am here for! These Zara straight-leg camel trousers with the wide turn-up hem fit like a glove. A piece that can be styled for work, brunch, lunch…the lot! I’m still grasping on to white pieces as the transitional fashion season edges in; this broderie backless top from Lost Ink is to-die-for. The puff sleeve and bow necktie are fab details. My go-to early-autumnal colour is beige; perfect with white, cream or black. While the weather has been grey for as many days as I can remember, at least the rain is currently at bay – although I may have just jinxed that one… While the weather behaves I am getting as much wear out of my mules as possible – the biggest footwear trend of 2021. Get your turn-up on!
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.
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.
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.
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.
