Styling A White Shirt

If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for a while then you would know all about my love for designer items. I like to mix high street  with high-end designer pieces and accessories to create my look, and it works for me. So you can imagine my excitement when the lovely people at McArthurGlen invited me to shop at their designer outlet in Cheshire last Saturday. If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, why don’t you?), you would have seen my updates while shopping at the designer outlet. I had an amazing time as you can imagine. Shopping is what I like to do, I can even do it in my sleep…

This shopping event was centered around styling the iconic white shirt. McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Cheshire Oaks teamed up with iconic tailoring brand – Brooks Brothers to launch an exciting pop-up concept: The White Shirt Bar. I visited this exclusive custom designed airstream. With over 200sqft of space, the 31ft airstream has been refurbished to create a unique, one-off shopping experience. For those who do not know, Brook Brothers founded in 1818, is one of the most iconic American brands and the oldest clothier in the United States, having dressed 39 of the
44 United States Presidents and being the first to introduce the concept of button-down collar shirts and ready-made men’s suits to the American market.

Today Brooks Brothers has 280 stores across 23 countries and 5 continents and is heavily engaged in the world of film and TV, having created all of the men’s costumes for the 2013 production of The Great Gatsby starring one of my favourite actors – Leonardo DiCaprio, costumes for every season of the popular TV series – Mad Men as well as many other film and TV productions.

The White Shirt Bar would be available at Cheshire Oaks for the whole of October so it is definitely worth checking out.

I was gifted a white shirt by Brooks Brothers, a goody bag with all sorts of goodies and yummies including some amazing white shirt cookies by Corporate Cakery, and a generous gift card to get pieces and accessories in the designer outlet to style the white shirt. I am a regular at the Cheshire Oaks designer outlet so I knew my way around, but I decided to hit the shops early as per my shopping smart tips. After going from shop to shop, I finally settled on the pieces you see below. I had a certain look in my head and I am glad I achieved it.

The white shirt has an amazing fit and screams quality from a distance. I also found it very easy to style. I got a few other pieces and accessories I will be showing off in upcoming outfit posts for your viewing pleasure, so keep your eyes peeled.

It is that time of the month when a fashion wish list is due on Fashion and Style Police, and I am super excited to showcase some new season fashion pieces and accessories I am currently crushing over. So without further ado, here are a few items I am currently crazy in love with –

 

Phase Eight Adrianna Chunky Poncho £99 £79

I love ponchos. I find them very comfortable and flattering. I have a few in my autumn/winter wardrobe, but I think I would be needing at least 1 new piece. This Phase Eight grey poncho ticks all the boxes. I love the colour, it is perfect for the season, and it looks quality too. I like the fact that Love the Sales has this piece on sale. I can see myself grabbing this beauty real soon.

 

Topshop Petite Stockholm Motif Sweatshirt £26

I always find sweatshirts so handy to have around, so I like to have a few in my wardrobe. They are useful for days when you are after a casual look or can’t be bothered to dress up. I love a sweatshirt on a pair of jeggings or skinny jeans. It is an effortless chic look. I have my eye on this Topshop piece at the moment. I love the light price tag of £26.

 

Hugo Boss Nadalia Shopper Bag £350 £175

You all know I love my handbags, and I like them to be QUALITY! This Hugo Boss Shopper bag has my name written all over it. I love the crafted from textured calfskin leather, and the spacious main compartment. It is a really chic bag. And I am happy to find the Hugo Boss sale on Love the Sales website. I can’t believe it is half price, what a bargain!

 

Stella McCartney Tri-tone Knitted Trainers £315

I am a huge of Stella McCartney’s designs. I wish I could afford every piece but since I am unable to, I can happy to lust after them. This new Tri-tone Knitted Trainers by Stella McCartney is a true sporty beauty. I love the fact that it has 3 colours – navy blue, black and blush.

 

Jimmy Choo Leather Trimmed Denim Espadrilles £325

A lady can never have too many pairs of Espadrilles. They are the bridge between comfort and style, and they are so practical. This Jimmy Choo is a fashion necessity right now. I love the denim design. I have styled this shoe candy in my head already.

OOTD: Spring/Summer Outfit

Looking Summery Image

The weather this weekend at my end went from one extreme to the other. It was nice and sunny on Saturday, and I made the most of it. I went for a swim, had outfits photos snapped, went for long walks and had a few errands sorted. Then came Sunday, and it was like we were back in winter again. It was very cold and wet, rained pretty much all day, and then we even hailstorm in the evening. It was a proper mental weather, you won’t believe the days were just next to each other, with the very different weather.

Speaking of weather, and how we are in meant to be in spring, getting ready for summer, but it still feels like winter on some days, we can start rocking our spring/summer pieces and accessories now. As long as you layer right on the chilly days, you would be fine. If not half the year may go by with you still rocking your autumn/winter pieces.

Spring Look

The good way to start slowly introducing your spring/summer wardrobe is to start with your shoes. It may not be warm enough for summer dresses and skirts, but you can get away with rocking sandals and summer shoes now, as long as you style them properly. There are so many amazing summer shoe collections in stores now, Kurt Geiger has so many stylish additions available this season, and this shoe candy I am rocking is one of them, so keep an eye on their new shoe collection section.

Spring Outfit

I adore the slightly curved small heel, I found it super comfortable. The ankle straps and the glossy khaki upper with the blue detail at the back, finishes it off beautifully. It is a shoe for both day and night, perfect choice!

Charm Bracelets Image

This Marilyn Heart Charm Bracelet by Corbico Jewellery London is the cutest piece ever! The three gold colour bracelets with heart dangle charms is from the Dainty Collection, and it comes in three colours; rose gold, gold and rhodium, and looks amazing. They can be take you from day to night effortlessly. I will be wearing these gorgeous pieces for as long as possible.
