Outfit | Nouveau Neutrals

Coat // Missguided

Skirt // Missguided
Pointed flats // Primark
Bag // Vintage

Neutrals are the fundamental basis that make up an outfit, they usually consist of those tonal colours such as black, white, grey and nudes that are building blocks to balance out the composition alongside print or bold colour. But today I want to talk about the 'new' neutrals that may come as a surprise to some and the ability to work these all together the same as you would a monochrome look.

Firstly the camel coat is undeniably a 'must have' again this winter, and that's due to it working so well with a variety of other colours by breaking up an outfit with a warmth that suits every skin tone.

The breton stripe is another must-have I have touched on before. This classic print works well with others and is also a great way to ease into including pattern to an otherwise simple outfit.

Lace has always been a traditional and elegant texture that adds interest to an outfit without committing to an obvious print.

Leopard spots have firmly planted themselves as a leading print that is here to stay season after season. Whether you want to make a statement in head to toe leopard, add a splash to an all black outfit, introduce as an accessory to break up a look, or clash it with another print, these spots are a favourite all round!

Outfit | Suit up, Look sharp

Hat // Primark
Waistcoat // Missguided
Cropped top // Missguided
Trousers // Missguided
Bag // Zara
Shoes // Missguided

I wouldn't exactly consider myself a smart person, being in the fashion industry means I’ve never really had to conform to strict work wear, and I haven’t worn a uniform since school when even then I would bend the rules. Luckily, comfort seems to be the latest concept in fashion with even the most tailored of suits being worn with trainers. So when Missguided contacted me to get down to business with their ‘Suit Up’ campaign I knew I’d be putting a casual spin on things.

If you’re from a more corporate background you may want to save the satin crop top for after work drinks and trade it for a shirt during office hours and of course, loose the hat! Black sleeveless Missguided blazers, tapered trousers and pointed brogues should be your new staples as all can be smartened up separately during the week and dressed down at the weekend, whichever suits!

Outfit | The last of the Green Leaves.

Beige Trench // Primark
Printed Sweatshirt // Primark
Khaki Shirt // H&M
Suede Shorts // Topshop Unique
Sunglasses // Asos
Heels // Linzi

With Autumn finally upon us the season of layering can commence and I'm kicking it of with light layers of a sheer khaki shirt under this MSGM inspired floral print sweater paired with one of AW14 hottest colours red in a key texture of suede. Shorts are my favourite transition piece from summer to autumn as you can pile up the heavy knits and coats over the areas that get the coldest whilst still flaunting the last remnants of those tanned legs!

Monday Must Have | Faux Fur

More inspo can be found on my pinterest

We're back with another Monday Must Have and with the weather taking a turn for the worst its time to start thinking Winter warmers, and where better to begin than with faux-Fur! The cosiest of all textures, its ideal comfort for those cold mornings when you want to roll out of bed and in to something just as snug. This year there's so much variety on the market be it curling up with a teddy bear, multi-coloured or long haired/ shaggy furs. And if you aren't ready to go all out sully, then the many fluffy accessories from scarves to pom pom bag charms, shoes and of course the 'IT' season fur clutch could be that touch of texture you're looking for.

Glamorous have a really great selection of faux fur coats at the moment so I've picked my favourites:

A well overdue post but with the hussle and bussle of Fashion month now over let's have a throwback to London Fashion week and what the streets had to say. For my outfit I wanted to nod to the uniform trend for AW14 whilst incorporating two key season colours' grey and khaki and my layering was inspired by two of my favourite style icons outfits here and here.
Below are some of my favourite streetstyle shots I took on Day 1:

Bright Colour, Pastels, earth tones, all black, fringing, tailoring, metallic accessories, statement oversized sunglasses and the man jacket drape- It was one hell of a fashion week, and that was only day 1!
