OOTD: Oversized Jumper Look

Hey peeps. I have another outfit post for your viewing and commenting pleasure. This is my 3rd outfit post of the year, and I am very happy with my progress so far, as far as outfit posts are concerned. I am slaying, if I may say so myself.

You will easily catch me rocking an oversized jumper these days. I love the oversized jumper look. It is just super comfy for these extra chilly days. I also find them very easy to style with good old leggings. It is a look anybody can get right. It is so easy, I don’t have to over think or second guess the styling. An oversized jumper look is great for those days when I want to look casual but chic, and it works every time.

I had the golden opportunity to pick out some pieces by Apricot, and I was super thrilled. It was my first time shopping the brand and I was well impressed with website; so easy to navigate. My order went smoothly and I got my pieces in about 3 days, which is fantastic with the crazy January sales going on. I wasn’t expecting to my delivery to come so quickly.

Speaking of January sales, have you spotted any crazy bargains? I have seen a few online and in stores, and I did get a few things. I suggest you get in their as soon as possible and grab what you need while they are on sale. All the pieces I got from Apricot were half price. I am wearing 2 of them here, and will be featuring the other 2 pieces in a different outfit post.

October Outfits 2016

I can’t believe we are in November already. Where has 2016 gone? This year has been the fastest in history. I am really struggling to keep up with the speed.

October was an incredibly busy month for Fashion and Style Police. I have been busy with life, keeping the site updated, and freelancing. But I am not complaining. I love being busy.

Here is a quick of outfits in October –

 

Styling A White Shirt

I really enjoyed putting this look together. It was a style challenge for Cheshire Oaks, and it was a lot of fun. This is a great formal/office outfit. Great for meetings with clients and interviews, when you need to look like professional; you know what you are doing, lol. The highlight for this look was the Guess Handbag. It is loved by many and I can see why. It made the outfit POP!

 

A Little Black Dress

This little black dress outfit was another popular post in October, and it is easy to see why. I love all the pieces I styled together here. The Phase Eight lace black dress is the prettiest dress ever. I love how delicate it looks. It is clearly the highlight of this look, followed closely by the Dorothy Perkins blue suede shoes and the Wallis coral blazer. Another great formal outfit idea.

After a series of formal outfits, this casual outfit was most welcomed by many. I like how chic and casual it looks. It was a day for running errands and meeting up with friends, and this outfit easy and comfy to run around in. The TOMS and Guess jumper were my highlights for this outfit.

What do you think of all 3 looks? Which is your favourite and why?

Sound off in the comment section, let’s have a chat.

Thanks for reading.

Adding a Personal Touch to your Personal Style

I looked back at some of my old outfit photos some days ago, and I was amazed at how much my personal style has changed for the better. I can never dream of wearing some of the outfits I wore happily back then. It just confirms how our personal tastes and style keeps changing. I am sure 5 years from now, I won’t dream of dressing the way I dress now. I think age and where we are at in life plays a major role in how we dress up. As long as we keep growing, our personal style will keep changing, hopefully for the better.

Here are a 3 ways of adding a personal touch to your personal style:

Use the KISS Principle

For those who do no know, KISS stands for Keep It Simple Stupid..Ha. I learnt that from my Finance tutor at the university. I always try to make all my outfits look effortless. Like I didn’t over think the pieces I choose. Also, I try not to over-accessorise because it usually ruins the look. The Style Icon – Bridget Sojourner, is one of the few women that can look good rocking so many accessories at the same time. To get maximum impact, stick with 2 key items at a time.

Focus on the Positives

Use the power of accessories to draw attention to certain parts of your body you like. So if you have huge boobs, put on a long necklace, if you have a small waist, put on  waist belt to show it off.

Shop your Closet

Before you go all out to shop new pieces and accessories, take a good look at what you already have. I enjoy shopping my closet and I do it a lot. Shopping your closet basically means you styling your pieces differently. So matching pieces you haven’t matched before with accessories you haven’t matched before. This way you get more wear out of your pieces, and new matched outfit would feel and look new. It is a mind game. For example, the Jack Wills dress I have above is paired with a Tommy Hilfiger Trainers and a Guess Bag. For a different look, I can pair the same dress with a pair of black/brown flats or sandals, and a different handbag to give a completely different look.

Ignore Trends

Ignore trends COMPLETELY. Only shop for pieces and accessories that suit your personal style. Do not be forced into outfits that do not look good on you because everyone is wearing it. What looks good on Celebrity Star A may look hideous on you. Do not be deceived.
