January- Lady in the Red (…Tracksuit)

Just a few years ago if you were seen wearing a tracksuit heading into a restaurant, bar or any other place (besides the McDonald’s drive through), you would probably been the subject of ridicule. That, or have people wondering if you were having a bit of a breakdown. Thanks to the socio-economic group ‘The Chav’, the tracksuit seen anywhere outside the sporting world was a sign of severe lack of style and fashion sense for the everyday girl.

December- Camel Tones

I am not surprised this colour keeps reappearing in Winter fashion. Not only is it easy on the eye but surprisingly for a brown tone, it goes with everything! It’s quite rare to find a colour outside the usual blues, blacks, greys for outerwear which can be styled with every other colour, but Camel proves time and time again that it is a strong contender. Proving this theory, the Camel coat I have styled in this outfit post has been at the forefront of my wardrobe for the past few years after stumbling upon it in a charity shop in Winchester whilst at University.  I love it. Made of fifty percent cashmere and fitted with large shiny buttons, its classical look is perfect for making any outfit look chic. I have matched it with a winter-appropriate matching roll-neck, a black Topman beanie, jeans and my trusty Dr Martens. Take a scroll down and have a look!

October-Puffing Out

“Puffing Out” is my tribute to the style essential this winter. Of course, the Puffa Jacket. Nobody needs telling twice right now how popular they are, coming in so many styles and colours you’d be a fool not to snap one up this season. In this post you can also see two other style must-haves taking over everybody’s instragram feeds at the moment. Camo items and the widely admired black and white ‘Old Skool’ Vans. Go on, have a look!

3 Trip Summer: A Retrospective Style Diary

Now that Summer has well and truly left us/ (me) crying and pining like a love sick teenager, I have retrospectively decided to compile a quick post about my favourite outfits from my three trips abroad. If you have kept up with my previous posts and/or Instagram posts you’ll already know that I was lucky enough to visit America, Cyprus and Prague this Summer.Although Summer 2016 involved many festivals and events around London for me, I thought here I would focus just on my trips abroad as they involved planning and packing specific items of clothing in advance. And also, the scenery is a little different over seas of course, making for some interesting photos.

*Pink Lady* JESSYLAW x LAMODA pt.1

For part 1 of my collaboration with my favourite accessories brand LAMODA , I have chosen to style the ‘Dilemma’ pink Sunglasses and the ‘Case of the Ex’ pink Choker with a pink crop top and baggy camouflage trousers. Drawing inspiration from mixing girly tones with boyish items (seen on style icons such as Rihanna and Kylie Jenner), the combination of the two styles mixed together creates imagery of a feminine but tough protagonist.  Scroll down to see how I have styled these items and make sure you let me know what you think in the comment section below!

JESSYLAW x MISSGUIDED Faux Leather Jacket

Now, I have been searching for the perfect Faux Leather Jacket for what feels like a lifetime. So, you can imagine just how happy (and relieved!) I was to stumble across this beaut online. From the ever popular online store Missguided, I eagerly waited the arrival of this jacket, preparing myself for the possibility that it might not actually be what I had been searching for all this time. I have to be honest.. this jacket blew all my preconceived hopes and dreams (lol) out the window. It’s not just what I have been looking for, its more.

June- Double denim difference

I have always been in love with denim. Denim jackets, denim jeans, denim shoes (yuuuup!) have always been major players in my wardrobe, and I am certainly not alone with my love for the material….

It is undeniable that denim has been a consistently popular material since its creation in 1871 via the ever famous Levi Strauss & co. Since then, denim jeans and its predecessors (which include every type of clothing garment imaginable), have been a staple to fashion.For this outfit post, I wanted to pick two unconventional items to create the ‘double denim look’, which usually consists of jeans paired with a denim jacket or a denim shirt. This look however, consists of a Pull and Bear denim trench and a Topman Cap. Both of which can be found in links at the bottom of the page.
