The bargains are really good. It is worth having a look to see if anything on your shopping list/wish list is now on sale. I love buying items on half price or even less! The bigger the sale, the better. If you are after some fashion items this season, you may find these fashion and style tips very useful. It makes sense to go shopping with a list of what you do want, so you don’t end up with unplanned purchases that look good.

Classic shoes never go out of fashion

Apart from being comfortable, classic shoes are always in vogue. Which is why I am like going for classic footwear. They are stylish, comfy and always bang on trend. What is there not to like? If you are after some fashionable shoes this sales, go for classic shoes, they never go out of fashion.

 

Go for statement accessories

I love having statement accessories, they are always in style. Statement accessories can switch up any look for the better. This is the best time to add more statement accessories to your collection. Many are currently on sale as I type. I have seen a few I like in many high street shops, and I plan to add them to my accessories collection. I am particularly interested in necklaces and earrings. What sort of accessories do you like wearing?

 

Tartan pieces

Tartan is one print that never seems to go out of fashion. It is always trendy, which is why I am buying some Tartan pieces this season. I love the print so much and it is super easy to style. Are you a fan of the Tartan print?

 

Invest in a chic coat

Coats are great pieces to invest in especially if you live in a cold region. I like to have a couple of coats in different colours and styles, to create various looks. If there is one piece you need invest in this season, I would advise you go for a chic coat. They are always in style and super handy to have around. A woman can never have too many coats.

 

Add some colour to your wardrobe

It is so easy to end up wearing monochrome colours only especially at this time of the year. Adding some colour to your wardrobe will help wake it up a little and add some vibe to your look. I love going for colourful accessories and sweaters.

Style Icon – Mel B

The stunning Melanie Brown, popularly known as Mel B, is the first style icon of the year. I have been a huge fan of this gorgeous women for decades now.

Style Icon – Mel B

This television personality, singer, actress and author has played a huge role in British fashion. She is the definition of a true fashionista! I love how much she has grown in all areas of her life. Back in her young days, I was not a fan of her personal style. It was way too over the top for me with the bright colours, crazy hair, bold prints and loads of unnecessary accessories. However, when I look at her now, I admired almost every outfit I see on her. Mel B knows what looks good on her, and wears it like a boss. Her carriage and charisma, together with her impeccable taste in fashion make her a true style icon. I love this toned-down version of her.

Mel B is a natural beauty as well, and I will be featuring her in the beauty muse category soon. Her skin and makeup is always beauty goals for me. I love how amazing she looks now. Looking back, I never would have thought of Mel B or any of the other Spice Girls as a Style Icon. It is great to see she has changed her fashion game for the better. Her current fashion stylist deserves an award.

Tips for Buying Kids Clothing All Year Round

*Collaborative post.

Buying clothes for your children can be a stressful experience. Looking for high-quality clothes, for your own child, or as a gift for another child, can be made easier with a few tips and tricks to help to make the search easier.

Clothing Sizes

Unlike adult clothes sizes, kids clothes are often linked with their age or even weight. Which means for those who don’t have children, just knowing the age of the child will help when buying for another child.

Clothes sizes for children will go from ‘Tiny Baby’, 0-3 months, increasing in 3-6 month intervals as babies grow, right up to 15-16 years old where children will possibly begin to wear clothes in adult sizes anyway. 

If you’re unsure what size the child is, pick something at least one size bigger than the child’s age- some children grow faster than others, but for those who don’t, the child will grow into the item eventually. 

 

Going Age Appropriate 

As well as making sure that the clothes fit the baby or child, it is also important that the clothes are fit for purpose, too. For example, when choosing clothing for a baby it is important that they won’t irritate their skin- choose soft fabrics that are easy to remove and that are easily washable. 

Toddlers will need clothes that are durable, as once they start walking, they will need to make sure that the items of clothing are safe of tripping and choking hazards, so should be free of loose or detachable parts.
Kids clothing should be of a good quality, safe, and comfortable for wearing as they transition and grow. 

 

Think Seasonal 

Thanks to end of season sales and the predictability of the growth of children, its easy to buy clothing suited to kids that will be great for the following year, too. 

Most clothing options are available all-year-round without seasonal up scaled prices- this means you can buy your girls and boys swimwear in the winter or springtime at a marked-down price.

The same goes for their winter coats- these can be expensive peak season, so it’s always handy to have something available for when the chill hits. 

Unless donned with sandcastles and sea creatures, T-shirts are excellent layering tools to create other, more diverse looks. Choose long sleeve tops, shirts, and dresses to create a mix and match look. 

 

Shoes

You can’t talk about how to buy kids clothes without thinking of their feet, too. As kids grow, buying shoes can be incredibly expensive as they could only last a few months before they need to go up to the next size- but equally, it is really important that they are comfortable and supportive so as not to make them trip over and fall. 

Having well-fitting shoes will ensure that they don’t cause any foot problems as their feet grow.

Go to a professional to get their feet measured properly. Kids will only need a few pairs of shoes to see them through the year- for example- a pair of trainers, boots, sandals and school shoes.

Kids will develop their own sense of style over time. Keep them cool, without over spending!
