Boots, denim cut offs and fringing? Yes please.
Fell in love with these mint jeans when afro-mazing blogger Prince Cassius featured them on his blog. They feel a bit summery so I haven’t worn them much but as the weather gets better I doubt I’ll be out of them much. I am now after a rainbow of coloured jeans – what’s your favourite jeans colour? I think I’ll be looking for a purple or yellow next.
OMG Rumi you’re killing me. I can’t look at Fashiontoast without falling in love with pretty much every outfit, but this army jacket from Simone Perele is insane. Looks so butch and masculine, but with the buttons undone low and perhaps some cute little denim shorts it’s a winner.
Hi girls, just wanted to share a few pics from this cute little campaign with you all. It’s super simple but super sweet, and the cotton candy colours and bright prints are perfect for the upcoming (I hope, you can never tell with England) Spring. Also – I need that huge hoop chain earring in picture 2! It’s the sort of thing that would look cheap in both ears but in one it looks so cool.
Not much commentary for you, just a bunch of pictures from editorials, lookbooks and other fashiony sources that are inspiring me this week. Loving effortlessly cool styling and simple, stand-out pieces.
Last month I won a Facebook competition with Unmissable and Wonderbra, so me and one of my best friends got to have an awesome weekend of girly treats all for free! We stayed overnight in the lovely Cavendish hotel (full English breakfast anyone?) and spent Saturday having a makeover at TOWIE’s Lydia Bright’s store Bella Sorella (I got the tartan harem pants in the photo above as well as two a jacket I’ll be featuring in an outfit post soon) before heading over to Mahiki for a lot of drinking and a lot of rugby men (it was the Saracens’ Christmas party). Oh, and we were chauffeur-driven everywhere. Yep, we were truly spoilt. Of course I forgot my camera, so I didn’t manage to get any pictures over the weekend, but here’s a video Wonderbra made while we were at Lydia’s shop:
I’ve also had my eye on Isabel Marant’s feather earrings and Aztec beaded cuffs. I love the cool, boho vibe a few simple tribal accessories add to an outfit – as inspired by the beautiful Isabel Lucas shoot for Vogue a while back, and Project Runway’s Anya of course! It’s probably worth investing in one or two statement pieces though, as I’ve had tribal style jewellery in the past from cheaper retailers that has broken apart pretty quickly due to all the delicate feathers and beads involved. I also think it’s a style that can easily look tacky, so one or two investment pieces may be the way to go.
If I could, I’d live in leather trousers. They add coolness to any outfit, and I love pairing them with tees and more feminine textures like this Supertrash silk top. Real leather is also great in any season as it’s surprisingly cooling in hot temperatures and warming in winter, so although they’re pricey they are a good investment. I scored these amazing Ted Baker real leather and jersey trousers for £30 in an amazing Selfridges sale last year. Insane!
Obsessed with everything studs right now – studded jackets, studded bags – and studded shoes are one of the easiest ways to edge up an outfit. I usually think of studded shoes as boots, but Topshop have spiked up flats with their now everywhere Vectra3 flats. I’m also surprised by how much I love these Diesel trainers. They could have gone a bit too bling but the colours and materials have kept them cool.
