Fashion Accessories for Autumn

Autumn is here and the chill is in the air. This means it’s time to get out our warm clothes and accessories ready, get the blankets and the candles out, for the lazy days and nights ahead. I am looking forward to the cold weather kind of, and I am making the most of what is left of summer. It would be another 6 months before we experience some good sunny days, so remember to make the most of it. This Fashion Accessories post is all about accessories I have on my fashion radar for myself and for others.

I am a huge fan of anything Ted Baker. There is something so sophisticated and elegant about the Ted Baker brand. I have a few Ted Baker pieces and accessories, and I am forever adding to my collection.

I came across this stunning black Ted Baker Leather Men Shoes on Mainline Menswear some days ago, and I really like it. It is 100% leather. The blue leather and textile lining with a short stacked heel design is a beauty. I think it would make a perfect gift for the fellas. I know mine loves this pair. What do you think?

I really like this Dream Bralette by Magic Body Fashion. It is both functional and fashionable. I like the fact that it comes in 4 colours – Black, Rose, Snow White and Light Grey. There should be a colour for every woman.

I recently got my hands on a pair and it has been so useful. Seriously loving it!

 

 

Burberry House Check Strap Backpack

It took me some time to find this Burberry backpack online. I had to describe it in a few different ways before stumbling upon it on the Farfetch website. Only to discover, it is now sold out! I guess that is why it was almost impossible to find it.

I fell in love with this Burberry Backpack months ago, while holidaying in Milan. It was the simplicity of the backpack, and the check straps that sealed my love for it. It is a true beauty.

 

 

Isabel Marant Bekett Suede Wedge Trainers

This black Isabel Marant Bekett suede wedge trainers is on my fashion radar. I adore it! It would complement my wardrobe beautifully.

If I win a lottery today, I would definitely be buying a pair.

How to Shop for the Right Shirt

Shirts are wardrobe essentials for both men and women. And for this reason, many of us own quite a few shirts in various styles and colours. There is a wide variety of shirts to choose from in different stores. So it cam be tricky to shop for the right shirt. Here is how I go about it –

 

Shop for the right shirt by focusing on the material

Shirts come in a variety of styles and fabrics. And it can be confusing when deciding on which shirts to shop.

Style Tip – Opt for shirts with fabrics that are stretchy so you don’t lose it in the wash. But not too stretchy, or they will hug the lumps and bumps, you rather hide. It can be tricky to get this balance right. The only way you can be 100% of the fabric before you buy is to try it in the stores, so online shopping is a gamble when it comes to shopping for shirts.

 

Have a classic white shirt

A classic white shirt is a wardrobe essential, and everyone should have at least one in their wardrobe.  It can be worn to the office and dressed down with jeans for other occasions.

Style Tip – When shopping for the right shirt, it is best to go for good quality cotton for crispness. Anything less won’t cut it.

 

Opt for fashion shirts

Fashion shirts are still in vogue and I like them. I have a few in my wardrobe, and plan on adding some more to my collection. They are great for taking you from AM to PM with ease and style. Fashion shirts can be teamed up with skirts or trousers, to add some softness to a tailored look.

Style Tip – When shopping for fashion shirts, go for pieces that are lined to avoid see through issues.

 

I hope you find these style tips useful when next out to shop for the right shirt. Please share any style tips that may have worked for you in the comments section below.

OOTD: Casual Style

I took these photos the other day in London. The weather was nice and I was in the mood for some outfit photos. I am loving the casual style look this summer. I find it dead comfy and so easy to style. It literally takes me minutes to put an outfit together, and as a busy mum of 2, every minute counts.

I need my outfits to be totally comfortable, but yet very stylish! The kids are on summer holidays for the next few weeks, so that means we are super busy, trying to make the most of what we have left of summer (weather permitting), and juggling all sorts. Life is incredibly busy at the moment, but I won’t have it any other way.

 

How to Rock the Casual Style Look

Here are 2 style tips I stick to –

 

Focus on the Accessories

Keep everything else cool, and focus on the accessories. In my case, I am drawing all the attention to my sandals and my sunnies and it works. For you to get the Casual Style look right, your accessories have to do the talking. So scarves, sunnies, hats, footwear, bags, should be the focus, and not the actual outfit. And not all at once. I see some people rocking their accessories collection all in 1 outfit. That is not a good look.

Stick to a maximum of 2 colours

For you to get the casual styling look right, you should stick to a maximum of 2 clothes (not counting black or white). Anything more would be a little too much for a casual look. I would also avoid colour blocking for a when it comes to nailing a casual style, and I rather opt for monochrome colours as they are safer and easier to style casual.
