Looking Back: April 2016


There are so many hot trends on the fashion scene at the moment, a lot of them that I love and just can't get enough of. I decided to feature a few of my favourite trends on the blog this month, starting with the classic nautical. 

As soon as I saw this striped top in Zara I knew I had to buy it, well okay I say that with most things I buy from Zara. But honestly, I knew it would look great with my navy pencil skirt and a load of other things I own. I decided to team this particular outfit with stone heeled sandals and a navy gold chain bag for a finishing touch.

I've always been a bit reluctant to get in on the off shoulder trend, despite being a huge fan, as it tends to accentuate my chest and make my body proportions look ridiculous (lol). However, I was fortunate to come across this oversized striped top from boohoo.com that had a short flare at the bottom. Perfect for cinching in my waist and making my chest look smaller.

I also came across another top at boohoo.com, this incredible cold shouder top, that I love so much I had to get it in two colours; reliable black and hot on the catwalk blush pink. I decided to team both tops with faux leather mini skirts, in matching colours. Both outfits, whilst similar had totally different vibes; girly and rock chic. Funny how different colours and make-up can make such similar outfits look so very different. 

Not hot on the scene, but still one of my favourites, I decided to also feature some African print garments, giving it a more western vibe with high-street buys; a black low cut bodysuit and a black tube midi skirt. I've had quite good feedback for both outfits, I've decided to do similar outfits in the near future.

I finished off the collection of looks with a full orange ensemble... a colour I will never get tired of. I love bold colours and this outfit has inspired me to feature more block colours and less black for the coming month.
