GET THE LOOK STYLE GUIDE RIPPED JEANS & SHIRTS.

Casual Fashion I don’t know about you but I love the pair of ripped jeans and an oversized shirt, there is just something about it. As a massive lover of casual fashion, this is look I personally wear on a regular basis! As well as being a Pinterest fan, I love looking for different styles and looks on there (quite often spending a fortune) and found this look.

  1. Oversized shirt
  2. Ripped jeans
  3. Tanned shoes/bag
  4. Sunglasses

An oversized shirt is a great look for a cloudy summers day (added with ripped jeans) but if you add a bomber jacket and some Chelsea Boots, a perfect look for an Autumns day – winner!

How To Guide: The Complete Guide for Women’s Fashion

 

The Complete Guide for Women’s Fashion

We have worked with Rebateszone to create a great infographic on Women’s Fashion. A guide on how to dress to make you feel more confident. Take a look below from more details.

Women’s Fashion:

What is the most important thing when it comes to fashion? Is it the clothes? Is it looking good? Is it looking good for the world or looking good for yourself? Many fashion enthusiasts think that looking good has nothing to do with fashion. But, to them we say the popular phrase: balderdash. We know that this isn’t a phrase, but they don’t have an argument as well. For us, fashion has always meant to look good and be comfortable while doing it. You will have to go out of your comfort zone, but you do not have to fall out of it right now.

So, we hear that ripped jeans are all the rave this spring, after all Gigi Hadid is sporting them. That is one way of thinking about fashion. But, if like us a $1000 pair of jeans with holes the size of your fist does not appeal to you, then we suggest a pair of bottoms from American Eagle. But, humor apart, there are three questions that you need to ask yourself to turn heads in adoration:

  1. What is my body type?
  2. What is the fit that should go with it and will accentuate the natural features?
  3. What color combinations do I like and that would not have me looking like a clown?

What Body Type are you?

But, before you answer these you have to be comfortable with who you are. That can only be achieved if you stop to appreciate yourself. After all, there is a reason that body types are usually named after fruits. All of them are sweet, but unfortunately the media would have all of us look like a coke bottle. So, find out your body type. The next question will require some reading up and experience. Find out your distinguishing features and select the right fit to accentuate them. Color combinations are the relaxed part, as long as you do not look like a clown, unless you want to look like it, then it would be the ideal look.

We have made a detailed infographic to help you out with the aforementioned questions. So, go through it and if you ever want ripped jeans, just rip up an old pair from the closet.

How to Dress Like a Lady on Ladies Day!

As we all know Ladies Day at the Grand Nationals is one day in the year where you can find some of the best dressed ladies who look simply lovely, and how to but it politely, some of the worst dressed ladies, where with a little guidance they could be rocking the fashion too!

As ever racing royalty and the ‘Queen of Aintree’, Coleen Rooney was dressed to impress. She looked lovely in a thigh fitting lace dress in a coral colour with an off the shoulder neckline, paired with nude shoes and a YSL nude clutch. Coleen looked simply beautiful.

  rexfeatures_5624252bw-640x457

But how can you dress like a lady at ladies day, just like Coleen Rooney? Here are some style guides to make sure you achieve fashion heaven whilst the enjoying races!

ASOS!

We’ve gone all out, girly style! Pink, lace, metallic’s… but how pretty? I love this lace dress from ASOS and paired with some silver heals and the clam clutch (an all time fav!) you’ll be ready to rock the races this year in this fashion ensemble! All these items can be found on ASOS.

ASOS

TOPSHOP!

The look for Ladies Day at Aintree below is inspired from Topshop. All items can be found on their website. Nudes are definitely in this year and as we’ve seen in the previous days, a popular colour to wear. If you pair it with a dark colour, the contrast will make you stand out from the crowd. I personally love the rose gold heels and to style it up, the glitter clutch to add some girlyness to the look!

Fashion Guide: 5 Ways to Wear your Belt

Belts – there are so many styles and different ways to wear them, where do you even begin? Here is a guide with 5 best ways to wear your belt. 

Wearing a belt these days isn’t so much a necessity but more of a style choice. A way to complete your outfit, to add colour or to show off your shape… whatever the reason,  you want to wear a belt that compliments your outfit and body shape so that you feel confident once you leave your house.

Here are our top ways to wear your belt to suit you outfit and body shape!

High Waisted Belt:

A high waisted belt is perfect to define your waist, especially if you have an hourglass figure as your using the belt to show off your narrow point. If you have short legs, wearing your belt higher will elongate them, making you look taller. See (below) how the belts are placed highly, but at the narrowest point of the body.

Belt 1

Pointer: If your waist is not thinner than the rest of your bust area, you don’t want to highlight it as it may make you look a little a bigger than you are.

Low Waisted Belt:

Low waisted belts are great for defining a structure to your body. Whether you have one or not, you can pull off this style. If you’re short waisted, wearing a low waist belt will elongate your mid too! You’ll notice in the image below that the belts don’t emphasis the narrow points of the body, but work really well with a baggy top and jeans to add structure the look.

Belt 2

Pointer: If you have larger hips, I would avoid wearing a low waist belt as you’re drawing attention to the widest part of your body – look for the narrow point! 

Medium belt:

These can work either as a high waisted belt or low waisted belt. You want something that will add structure to your outfit or show off your figure. You’ll often find these fit well in belt loops on jeanstrousers and shorts. 

Belts 3

Pointer: Medium belts don’t need to be brought with the intent of just being worn as high waisted or low waisted belt. Make sure you find one which is versatile.

Statement Belt:

Statement belts are perfect for transforming a look. They can be any colour but are often fairly large and eye catching. These are perfect for those with an hourglass figure to cinch you in at the waist.

Belt 4

Pointer: For the best result, statement belts need to be worn on the narrowest part of the body as all eyes will be upon it… show off your curves!

‘Add Colour’ Belt:

Sometimes all an outfit needs is a little colour. A belt can do this, whether it be a high waisted belt, a low waisted belt, or a statement belt. As long as your belt is sat on your narrow point or giving you some structure, you can’t go wrong!

Belt 5

Pointer: Don’t be afraid to have fun with it. Sometimes we all need to have a little colour in our life!

5 TOP TIPS: Getting Ready for your Night Out

We all love a night out, a little boogie and a few drinks, but more importantly we all love to feel great and love ourselves at the same time! Let’s face it, the more confident you feel, the more fun you have too…. I want to share with you my five top tips,  that if you follow, your confidence will be through the roof when you get in that taxi!

Confidence is the key to having fun. Wearing a great outfit, having the perfect hair and pretty make up may also helps too, but more importantly being happy with yourself is the key to any happiness, so here are my five top tips when getting ready for your night out…

  1. Have the perfect pair of heels. Having the perfect pair of shoes can make the world of difference to how you feel. Even if you wear there time and time again, if they comfy, make you smile and go with your outfit, you are hot to trot….
  2. Be highly groomed. Shave them legs, pluck those eyes brows, paint those nails and enjoy every second of it! Have a bath, a glass of wine and enjoy. This is my favourite part of going out, ‘my time’!
  3. Take your time. Make sure you give yourself plenty of it. When you rush, you become stressed and things just never look right or go right. Allow time to relax, listen to some music, have a glass of wine, plan your outfit and allow this to become apart of your evening!
  4. Be comfy, now this may sound a little fuzzy but this is one of the most important things – yes, beauty is pain, but smiles come with happiness and unfortunately that doesn’t come with pain. Hey, but fear not, this doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style… you just have to shop smart and be prepared to pay a little extra for the comfort.
  5. Be you. Wear something you are happy with, comfortable in and you’ll end up smiling are night long. Have a look at my ‘Get The Look’ posts to get some top tips on styling!

Happiness is key. Find something that makes you smile, create a beauty regime that you love, pick the outfit of your fashion heaven and more importantly surround yourself with people who make you feel fantastic and love you, for you!

 

Enjoy that night ladies XO.

Topshop Jean Haul

Hey there lovely readers!

As you may have guessed, Topshop is one of my favourite shops of all time, I just love it from the quality to the variety of styles!

In a moment of madness on Friday (aka Black Friday) I decided to go shopping to Birmingham, and yes before you all ask it was utter chaos! However, I did get a bargain so time wasn’t wasted in vain.

I’d been looking for some new jeans for a long while now and I tend to always get my jeans from Topshop as I know what size I am and that they fit me perfectly. I’d had my eyes on the grey pair (below) and had done for a while!

 Topshop, Topshop Fashion

Topshop | Moto Dark Grey Leigh Jeans | £38.00

I was so disappointed to find they didn’t have my size in store either in Topshop or in Selfirdges, but I was desperate for a new pair of jeans, however this pair caught my eye…

Topshop, Topshop Fashion

Topshop | Moto Authentic Ripped Jamie Jeans | £42.00

They are just amazing and I love them. Since Friday I have lived in them and they haven’t let me down on my expectations. Super comfy, stylish and they will go with just about anything from converse to ankle boots with a jumper or a shirt …
