Fashion sweatshirts? So 2016. Hoodies? Overplayed. Cardigans? Now we’re talking. Cardigans are becoming the topper of choice thanks to their versatility, cozy-chic silhouettes and the fact that they can be layered on top of almost any outfit.
We all associate each season with different colours. In Spring we bust out the pastels while we tend to go for burnt oranges and shades of brown in the Autumn. It’s great to shake things up in the wardrobe and bring in a new colour pallette. But this season it’s time to break the mould and carry some colours we associate with other seasons into the Autumn.
Not all weddings are in the height of Summer (June being the most popular month). Some people opt for an Autumn wedding and we love it! Another popular time for couples to say “I do” is in October. The weather is just getting nice and crisp, the leaves are turning and romance is definitely in the air.
The wise Miranda Priestly once said that florals for spring are hardly groundbreaking (we’re paraphrasing). If you agree, you may be tempted to try polka dots, stripes, plaid or even animal prints as an alternative to the popular print. But if you’re not quite ready to buck tradition completely, you can still celebrate nature with leaf prints.
Summer’s here for a good time, not a long time. It’s all about festivals and after-work drinks and more drinks in the park and…okay, it’s about being healthy too, sometimes. If working out is your thing then summer is the best because you don’t have to cover up your cute work out kit with a coat. We’re rolling in athleisure gear this week: what’s your workout style?
Fashion may be fickle, but the pieces that underpin a stylish wardrobe remain consistent. White T-shirts, ankle boots and trench coats are all mainstays of a capsule closet, and reigning supreme above them all is your old friend and confidante: a good pair of denim jeans.
I have a love / hate relationship with trends. While I’ve always had a great interest in trends and understanding how I can make my outfit more on trend, I’ve never been one to dress head to toe in a trend. I prefer instead to choose the most wearable trends that I can feel confident won’t be ‘one hit wonders’ that I wouldn’t be seen dead in the following season. I tend to opt for more classic pieces, and the odd trend piece, often an accessory or outerwear piece that makes my whole look ‘on trend’ without disregarding my signature style.
I finally found a pair of white boots that I like (that also weren’t silly money) to wear with my floral maxi dress – a combination I’ve been wanting to wear for ages. It was the tiniest bit milder this weekend, a bit different to the scorching weather we had last week. I could have gladly ditched the jacket again but for once I decided that I should wear my khaki suedette jacket, floral maxi dress and white boots by Kurt Geiger.
I stumbled across a really old outfit on the blog the other day and realised how much I still liked it – in fact I thought to myself that I’d totally wear it again.
Generally my reaction to anything I wore more than three or four years ago is one of horror, but as I liked this outfit from 2017 so much I thought I should go through my outfit archives to see if there were any others that also caught my eye. There were actually more than I thought, and it was quite interesting to see how my style has changed in some respects, but not in others.
First of all I SWEAR I had every intention of getting this look out weeks ago. Once the sunshine came along the green eyed fashion monster (this is me) couldn’t wait unleash the green from my wardrobe. But, as usual, my life has been a crazy mess and in true blogger style, I am posting this half way through the Summer instead of the start as i intended.
