September Fashion Wishlist 2016

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: Its All About the Print

I love animal prints so much. I think the designs look so fiery, just like I am sometimes. I guess that is the reason why I keep buying more and more animal print pieces and accessories. I just can’t get enough. I just find them so beautiful and super stylish!

This Animal Print top is one of my new summer additions. The print got my attention, and I love the fact that it is a light, sleeveless top. Just what I need for this dead warm season. I can also rock this beautiful piece with a cardigan or a blazer when the weather gets a bit chilly. I like pieces I can rock in multiple seasons as I get more wear out of them, which is more value for money.

The bag is also another summer newbie. I love my bags quality, so I knew I had to have this beauty once I laid my eyes on it. I love the colours, and the size. It was also sale, which was a plus. I can see myself rocking these newbies for a long time because they both complement my existing wardrobe, and that is a HUGE deal for me. Nowadays, I hardly go on massive shopping sprees, where is the money? But when I do go shopping, I like getting what I NEED, or what I think I NEED, and I make sure whatever it is I am getting complements my existing wardrobe. That way, I never run out of options, or matching outfits if I am in the mood to match.

Fashion in Sports

IMG_2987

Most of us still believe we have to compromise our love for fashion and style, when it comes to sportswear. Back in the day, we pretty much had to forfeit stylish pieces for sensible and practical sportswear, but that is no longer the case. Sportswear designers have realised they have to design stylish and practical pieces, and accessories to make the fashion lovers happy. The big sportswear giants – Adidas, Puma, Reebok, Speedo and Nike, now regularly collaborate with high street shops and luxury designers to cater for all, which is fab.

Stella McCartney previously launched a sportswear collection for Adidas, Alexander McQueen has launched a collection for Puma, and even Rei Kawakubo, the fashion designer behind the famous Japanese label Comme Des Garçons, has also produced a range of swimwear for Speedo. The high street brands are not left out of the trendy sportswear fun. I collaborated with New Look some months ago, and I featured some of their trendy ladies sportswear, if you missed that post, click that link.

The fact that sportswear designers now take fashion very seriously and ensure their collection is filled with stylish, practical pieces and accessories means a lot to us fashion lovers. I can happily work into a sportswear shop now, and be sure to find what I like, unlike in the nineties, when we all had to settle.

I get a lot of inspiration from watching sportswomen doing their thing in trendy pieces. Their activewear gives me ideas of what I should look out for in the shops and how to incorporate them into my wardrobe.

Here are some ways they inspire me –

 

Ballerina Shoes

I love stylish ladies ballerina shoes because they are so multi functional. They can be worn everyday and to almost everywhere, and I can picture myself twirling in them, in my pretend ballet class, lol. This particular wide fit Clarisa by Emilio Luca, via Brantano, is an excellent choice. I love the design and white colour. It is also super affordable at just £15 (at the time of writing). Perfect in every way.

 

Sunglasses

You all know how much I love my sunnies. I am hardly seen outside my house without one, especially in the summer months. It is more than a fashion accessory to me, it is more of a lifestyle necessity. I am short-sighted, I wear contact lenses on most days, and the bright sunlight makes me squint a lot, which gives me migraines. So having a pair of sunglasses in my bag is crucial to how my day would go.

When it comes to certain sports, poker in particularly, having a pair of sunglasses is vital. Poker players need to disguise their every move on the poker table. Basically, you need to have your Poker Face on all through the game, which many may find hard. The easiest way many poker players handle this is by having a pair of sunglasses on. If you go through WSOP, you will notice a few of their winners have on a pair of sunglasses. The eyes are the window to the soul, so having a sunglasses on while playing poker is smart.

I have my eye on this beautiful pair of Giorgio Armani Sunglasses. It is timeless and elegant, and it will be a nice addition to my sunglasses collection this summer.

 

Trainers

I love having a good pair of trainers for running, walking, and for the few times when I do manage to visit the gym. I am so happy there are now so many stylish options. This Adidas X Stella McCartney CC Sonic Neon Coral eoprene Trainers has really left me in awe. I love the coral colour (I am loving coral a lot these days), I like the compact narrow design (I am not a fan of bulky trainers), and it is quite affordable at £130. I can see myself grabbing a pair of this trainers easily. They look quality.

 

Which sportswear pieces are you loving at the moment? Do tell.
