The mornings tend to be cold this time of the year. So a good light jacket is needed for the season. I need a couple of light jackets to get me through the school run especially in the morning. You should invest in some if you are in need of light jackets this autumn. This Regatta Women’s Birchdale Jacket is a great option. It comes with a hood which is so handy, and there are many colours available. It is waterproof and breathable. Also, it has a durable water repellent finish which is amazing.

I love having hoodies at the ready for the autumn/winter season. They come in handy when it is dry and not cold enough for a jacket. I really like this Levi’s Women’s Batwing Hoodie Plain Regular Fit Long Sleeve Hoodie. It is super stretchy and looks like great quality.

You can easily find me in leggings even in the winter months. I find them very comfortable and easy to style. When I can’t think of what to wear, my leggings and a top come to the rescue.

School runs are never good in uncomfortable shoes. Especially when you are all running late and have to work really fast.

Style Icon – Michelle Dede

Michelle Dede – the Nigerian freelance television presenter and actress has always been my Style Icon. I have admired her style for as long as I have known her; I remember spotting her presenting Big Brother Nigeria many moons ago, and thinking she was (and still is) the definition of Stylish.

 

 

Michelle Dede always looks effortlessly chic. She makes dressing up look fun and easy, like it should be, and that is what I love most about her style. This Style Icon inspires my style goals, and I am not surprised she has such an impeccable style. As a graduate of fashion design and fashion merchandising, I can see where her love for fashion and style comes from.

 

 

In an interview with In Her Closet, Dede describes her style as Eclectic, and says her love for fashion became official while studying in London.

 

My sense of style is eclectic. I dress based on my mood each day, taking inspiration from broad and diverse sources. I’ve always been interested in fashion, as a kid and in my teens in high-school, I experimented mixing and matching my clothes, to the amusement of my parents and older siblings.

I studied fashion design & fashion merchandising in university, so I was surrounded by fashion as well as gravitated towards all things fashion related. London is the home of unique, edgy, unconventional fashion which I love.

 

I agree, I think London is one of the greatest fashion cities in the world!

 

She has shared some style tips.

Wear shoes you like, not what’s fashionable or what your friends think you should wear.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with colour, style is individual, so if you want to wear red shoes with a canary yellow outfit, do it!

 

I agree with her tips, style is individual.

How to Rock the Oversized Clothing Trend

Who would have thought oversized clothing would be so stylish today? Baggy clothes have been creating waves and many people especially celebrities have been using this ensemble as a trendy fashion statement. I have fallen in love with the oversized trend myself. I featured it some days ago, and I have been wearing quite a few oversized pieces in the last couple of days. So I decided to write up a post with tips on how to rock the oversized trend, so here is it.

Like every outfit, there is a right and wrong way to styling oversized clothing. The key to rocking oversized outfits is to strive to achieve a balance. Keeping baggy clothing to proportion is what will make you look stylish.

Here are simple tips that will help you make oversized outfits work for you.

  1. Baggy top + Fitting bottoms = Perfect match

With every oversized clothing, proportion and balance is key. That is the most important rule when it comes to styling oversized clothes and this equation is a perfect example.

Whenever you’re wearing an oversized or loose top, combine it with well fitted bottoms like skinny jeans or leggings. This gives you a more evened out silhouette.

You can complete this look with a pair of gorgeous looking heels.

 

  1. Baggy top + Short bottoms = Cute pair

The equation looks like complete opposites as large is competing with short but it still follows the rule on proportion and balance.

Alluring outfits start with contrasting combination. So in this case a baggy T-shirt or oversized sweater with a pair of shorts or short skirt can be a stylish and fun ensemble. However, make sure your shorts or skirt is not too short that it gets lost under your oversized top. That will make you look awkward as it will seem like all you have on is a baggy top. To be safe, always make sure the hem of your shorts or skirt sticks out from underneath.

 

  1. Baggy top + belt = Flattering Figure

Wearing an oversized top is great to hide areas you are not quite comfortable with, but at the same time it could also hides your assets.

Using a belt can make a big difference and help show off your flattering figure. Place a belt around the middle to flatter your waist and give your top a curvy shape. This simple trick will make your waist look smaller and show off an hour-glass figure.

  1. Fitted top + Baggy bottom = Comfy combo

Oversized styles do not only work for tops. It works for bottoms too. But, as always, balance is key.

A fitted top over baggy bottoms like yoga pants, boyfriend jeans and plaazzo pants keep this rule perfectly. The fitted top keeps you looking slim while the baggy bottoms keep it evened out, thus giving the perfect contrast.

This combination gives the aura of laid back and comfortable.

 

  1. Oversized jacket + Heels = Tall and Trendy

Oversized also goes to jackets and with an oversized jacket, you can experience a wow effect with this simple tip: add a pair of heels to the mix.

An oversized jacket is actually long, most times going below your waist. This creates a longer torso but when you wear a pair of good-looking heels you get longer legs thus making you look so much taller than you really are.

Choose heels that are the same colour with your bottoms. This will give the illusion that your legs are long. The same works when you wear long trousers that cover your heels.
