OOTD: Springtime Staples

It is so windy outside as I write this post, but the fact remains, it is springtime (or is it?), so time to get the Springtime Staples out of the storage and grab some new pieces from the shops, if your wardrobe is in need of a spring fashion update.

I am yet to get my spring/summer clothes out of storage. I plan to sort that out in the next few days, hopefully before the bank holiday weekend next week. At the moment, this confused British weather is really messing with me. It has been up and down as usual this week, dead warm on some days, and painfully cold on some other days, like today. I hear it even snowed in Scotland some days ago.  Can you imagine that in April?

Light layering is the only way to survive spring time fashion, with the ups and downs of the weather. Thankfully, the fashion gurus saw this coming and got us prepared.

 

 

The crazy weather makes dressing up so hard sometimes. You never know how the day would really turn out, so you never know what to wear on such days. It is good to have transitional pieces like what I have on at the ready for when you need it.

Everything I have on here is from my existing wardrobe, no new pieces. I take pride in styling pieces and accessories from my wardrobe in different ways. It gives me joy when I get maximum wear from pieces.

Autumn Fashion Season Swag

One of the best things about a new season is a new wardrobe. And one of the best things about Autumn fashion is the layering and the cosy pieces. I get super excited about new season trends. All I need is an unlimited budget to get buying right? If only…

Since I can’t buy all the cool pieces in the stores, I happily lust after them. I have my mind on so many stylish pieces. Here are a few of them –

 

Double Breasted Shearling Coat £40

I love this double-breasted Sherling Coat a lot. The tan suedette fabric with super soft cream faux fur lining and faux fur oversized lapel is bang on trend. I have nothing like this stunning piece in my wardrobe so I think this coat will be a fabulous addition.

 

SIK SILK CAMO INTERLOCK POLY TRICOT ZIP HOODIE £64.99

I am always on the lookout for stylish menswear for the man in my life and I think this camouflage hoodie is a fab choice. I love the camouflage print, I think it is so trendy and always in vogue. I wonder why I have no cam piece. I think I will need to change that. I can picture this hoody looking amazing on my man. It has Autumn fashion season swag written all over it.

 

Women’s Crew Neck Striped Wool Dress £180

This wool multi coloured dress is on my style radar; I don’t care how heavy the price tag is, lol..

I can picture myself rocking this beautiful piece with my black ankle boots. It would look amazing. Pairing this beauty with a pair of white sneakers would give it a nice laid back look too.

 

Alegria Watch, Gray £279

If you know me well enough, you would know how much I love my watches. I have not bought a new watch in a bit, but I have my eye on this gorgeous piece right here. It is so chic, so elegant. I love the sophisticated look and the grey dial. I would so love to have this beautiful watch on my wrist. Maybe Santa would come early…

This Faith Black Brooke High Boots is the Truth! I would classify this as a wardrobe necessity this season. It is a great pair of boots to have this Autumn. It would take you from day-to-night easily. I can’t leave with a few pairs of ankle boots in my wardrobe during Autumn/Winter.

5 Fashion Hacks for Jewellery

I do not wear a lot of jewellery, but the few I do wear, I like them to be quality. I won’t just put any piece on. Jewellery has the power to step up any look, once worn correctly.

Here are a few jewellery fashion hacks to remember when shopping or styling your next outfit:

 

All on the Wrist

Charm Bracelets Image

Drawing attention to your wrists is the oldest trick in the style bible. Opt for small and delicate bracelets or bangles if you have a slim, slender wrist like mine above, or go for chunkier wrist jewellery for larger wrists. These Corbico Bracelets are so cute.

 

No Necklaces on Halter-neck Tops

I see ladies rocking a halter-neck top and a necklace at the same time and it looks so wrong. I wish I could stop and tell every one of them, so I am telling as many that are reading this post. If you are guilty of the fashion mistake, please stop now.

The neck is a vocal point already, and having a halter-neck top on draws more attention to it. So rocking a necklace on a halter-neck top will just draw too much attention to it, and look odd. Instead, draw attention to your bare shoulders by rocking large hoop or drop earrings.

 

Layer the Bangles

I love layering bangles and bracelets. I think it is so cool, and it kind off adds the ‘WOW’ to an otherwise boring/plain outfit. I love stacking bangles and bracelets up. It creates this bold look. These Ziba Bangles are the TRUTH!

 

Earrings

 

Sparkling Earrings

I pay special attention to my earrings. I now go for quality over quantity so you won’t catch me rocking cheap plastic sterling silver earrings. I hardly necklaces on, because I like to pay more attention to my earrings. A beautiful pair of earrings, like the Hazel + Kent beauty above, can easily change an entire look. Trust me, I know.

 

Choker

Like I said, I hardly have necklaces on but when I do have them on, I like them to be dramatic. A choker has the power to transform a plain look to instantly. This dramatic Regal Rose choker necklace is one of my current favourites.
