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.
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!
Welcome to my new ‘Street Style Series’ log- a way for me to document and collect in a gallery style way my favourite styles and outfits of each month and a half. I don’t like to bombard my Instagram with too style shots (famous last words…) so here is a more dedicated way to include various photos of the same outfit without causing eye rolls from my friends… Have a scroll down to see a few of my outfits which show how I have started to cope with the turn of the season. Keeping in line with my style preferences, these outfits feature mainly high-street and vintage items from a variety of shops and locations. Let me know what you think in the comment section below!
“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!
I’ve said it before, I’m saying it now, and I’m sure I’ll say it a million times more. But I just love LAMODA! So it is with joy that I share with you guys my LAMODA collaboration, part 2! Featuring little me, the city of Bath, and a few of my new favourite accessories. If you’re looking for affordable fashion accessories online then you need to check out LAMODA! right away as there just isn’t anywhere else out there dedicated to giving you the latest on trend accessories at such an affordable price. For this outfit, I decided to try something little different than my usual look. I went for a more classy look compared to my usual streetwear style, very appropriate considering the upmarket settings of the city.
I had the opportunity to meet with one of my favourite photographers and do a quick shoot for a Vintage Reebok editorial. A purposely simple and one outfit only shoot, the idea for this came from my personal love of vintage sports /street wear. Those who know me well know how much I love finding rare vintage finds from markets, charity shops, vintage shops and sometimes even my mums wardrobe when I’m home (..and she isn’t looking!) I styled this shoot myself with clothes from my own wardrobe, drawing upon my own preferences. This consists of a Reebok Vintage bomber jacket, Vintage Reebok Vest top, white Adidas Nizza Lo’s, an old white beanie and my favourite topshop skinny jeans.
I would like to say a huge Thank You! to everyone involved including Ruby McHugh for my nude make up look and of course Eddie Flicks for taking the snaps. I am obsessed with minimal editing on images, as I love the more natural look which I feel is shown in the pictures below. Enjoy, and don’t forget to leave me comments with what you think.
