Day 27 Wardrobe Inspiration: Girly

Get girly

Springtime is the perfect season for florals and other random girlyness.

Personally…

Not so much of a girly girl but once in a while I indulge. Especially in spring and summer a very sleek and polished style can look overdone.

How to….

Break it up with brogues or an oversized jacket for a laid back look.

Today I’m wearing…

A blue flower print dress from Oasis, brogues and a denim jacket.

Day 26 Wardrobe Inspiration: Color on one half

155

Color on one half

A play on the color block, because it’s such a great look.

Personally…

I try to avoid dreary colors but if too much color scares you, just mix it in with black or white.

How to…

Wear color on the top or bottom half today. Team with black or white for a plain yet sophisticated look.

Today I’m wearing…

White jeans, white top and bright pink blazer. May the summer begin…

 

 

Day 25 Wardrobe Inspiration: Something you’ve never worn

Something you’ve never worn

Release one of  your wardrobe undead from its grave.

Personally…

Hand on heart – how many items have you got that have never seen the light of day? I never owned stuff with the tags  on, but lately, these wardrobe zombies have been creeping up on me. Not so much wrong purchases, but certainly unnecessary ones, these items are often unworn because I simply haven’t gotten round to them yet. This is definitely a first world problem.

How to…

Try and remember what attracted you to the item in the first place, and how and when you thought you were going to wear it. Maybe you can find a different use for it. If it was a total waste of your money, are you still in time to return it? Can you give it to a friend or sell on ebay? There is no point for something you’ll never wear to take up valuable space in your wardrobe and make you feel bad about yourself everytime you have to look at it.

Today I’m wearing…

A dress from Warehouse I bought a few years back which wasn’t at all cheap and was intended to be worn over slim jeans. However, I bought a size ten (why I do not know) and it just looks all wrong. Recently I’ve tried it on as a mini dress, and with a pair of boots it actually works well!

Day 24 Wardrobe Inspiration: Masculine vs Feminine

Masculine vs Feminine

Opposites attract.

Personally…

One of the best style tricks to pull off is mixing the unexpected, like opposing masculine and feminine elements. Marlene Dietrich thought though, anyway, and it still works a treat 80 years later. That’s what I call style.

How to…

Brogues with a girly dress, a tie or bow tie, a man’s watch… just raid your boyfriend’s closet is what I’m saying, if he’s remotely stylish.

Today I’m wearing…

A girly floral dress, brogues from Clark’s and my grandpa’s watch.
