OOTD: A Blogger Event Outfit

fashion-outfit-image

 

Have you told you how much I love my leopard print sandal? It first appeared here on the casual daywear look outfit post and I have worn it so many times now. It looks good with so many pieces in my wardrobe and it is dead easy to style. I get so many lovely compliments when I wear it, I guess that is because it stands out in a pretty way.

I wore this outfit to a fashion and beauty event in Chester over the weekend. I wanted a casual chic look so I went for aΒ  simple black top with a pair of skinny jeans, paired with cream sunnies, gold and brown bag and sandals. I like to black safe when it comes to press events so I usually for a black piece because it blends right in. You would hardly see me rocking colour at an event. Don’t ask me why….

Let me tell you just incase you were wondering, I love dark pieces and I think it always looks good but doesn’t usually stand out. I like looking good but not standing out at work related events (well not much) at events, and that is the reason why you won’t catch me wearing colour at press events.

The event was fun. It is my first press event this year and I had an amazing time. I was the only blogger invited to the event on that particular day so it felt kind of exclusive and I love that about it. I met some amazing people and I am going to tell you all about in the next couple of days, so be on the lookout for the post.

August 2016 Outfits

As we say goodbye to August, I reflect on how the month was for Fashion and Style Police. It was an exciting month for outfits and everything else. I had fun styling various pieces, and collaborating with a few brands. This August will definitely be remembered for all the right reasons.

Here is a quick recap on my outfits in August –

 

OOTD: Casual Day Wear Look

This casual day wear look was the first outfit for the month of August. I enjoyed styling this outfit because almost everything I had on was new, so it was fun playing with new pieces. The highlight of this outfit for me was the Sam Edelman leopard print platform sandals. It was my first time wearing it (got it on sale, wink wink) and it looked beautiful paired with the dress. I like how relaxed this outfit looks. It looks effortlessly chic.

 

OOTD: Summer Fashion

This is another outfit I really enjoyed styling. I was going for another relaxed look with this outfit, and I think I nailed it. The highlight here for me is the River Island sandals. I have fallen completely in love with this beauty. The Quiz coral top is also a beauty.

 

OOTD: Lace in Peplum

This outfit is all about the gorgeous pink lace peplum top by Quiz. It was clearly the highlight of the outfit. I love how easy it was to style this outfit. The beautiful top did all the work.

 

OOTD: Style Comfort Zone

This outfit was a style challenge collaboration with Boohoo, and I enjoyed stepping out of my style comfort zone, wearing this silver slip dress by the brand. It was a fun look.

 

OOTD: Chi Chi London Dress

This outfit post was the last outfit for August and the most viewed outfit post for the month so far. It is also my favourite look for August. I look how glam it looks. The highlight of this outfit is definitely the black lace Chi Chi London dress. It is a beauty.

OOTD: Casual Day Wear Look

I like the casual day wear trend especially in the summer. Most times, I find it too warm to look all dressed up so I settle for the casual day wear look and it suits my lifestyle just fine. Here are some tips to have in mind when experimenting with the casual day wear look:

 

Go for Quality

I always go for quality but I pay special attention to my casual day wear pieces because I wear them a lot. Cheap fabrics will fall apart quickly in my hands so I go for the best I can afford every time.

 

Dresses at the Ready

A dress isΒ  a great all-purpose, wear anywhere, anytime outfit, so invest wisely. Go for jersey fabrics, they drape beautifully, feel good and will flatter almost every figure.

 

Accessorise Smart

Don’t go overboard with big sparkly jewellery with casual day wear pieces. It would look too much. Keep the accessories small and understated so you look effortlessly chic. A simple scarf, sunglasses, a small bracelet or necklace would do if necessary.

Shop Smart

Don’t just buy clothes or accessories because you like them. Have a plan for every piece you buy. Make sure anything new fills a hole in your wardrobe, in this case, your casual day wear section. This wear you are building a capsule wardrobe, and you will never run out of what to wear.

 

Look Cool

Look cool, casual and trendy this summer by teaming a nice floral dress with flip-flops or sandals like I have done here. This look ensures you stay cool in the heat, and it is so easy to style. As long as your dress is groomed, this look works.

 

Go for a Perfect Fit

Casual day wear does not mean baggy or loose. Go for pieces that suit your body shape. If you rather have a track suit or an oversize top, ensure you balance the look with a pair of skinny jeans, a belt and heels.
