My Love for Fashion Events

*Collaborative post.

My love for fashion events has been on for as long as I can remember. I remember when I initially started blogging, and the dream of attending fashion week all over the world. I was reading lots of purely fashion blogs then and they all attended these top fashion events, and I wanted to do the same so bad. The likes of E! and Rachel Zoe’s show (I love her) didn’t help as well as that was all they seem to talk about. Back then, it felt as if I had to attend these fashion shows before I could be an established fashion blogger.

In the early days of blogging, I stumbled upon a little fashion show in an Essex shopping mall and that sealed my dream for me. We were visiting family and friends and shopping in a mall in Essex. We didn’t even know there was a fashion show going on until we stumbled upon the mini stage. It was fun to watch and I even got some lovely pictures I happy to show off. I also got to see some members of the Little Mix Girl Group and Ashley Banjo from the Diversity group. Too bad I didn’t get a photo of them.

If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police since 2012, you may recognise these images.

The fashion show was in Lakeside Shopping Mall Essex and it was all about showing off the new pieces and accessories on the high street. That has been my first and only fashion show. I haven’t lost interest in attending a fashion show or going for fashion week but my enthusiasm. has reduced.  I know I will attend many fashion weeks in the future but the timing and situation has to be right. Attending Paris Fashion Week or Milan Fashion Week in a private jet charter would be so amazing. That is the goal.

I have attended many fashion events before Fashion and Style Police was born. I was a guest at the Street Style Bus Fashion Event some time ago, and that was so much fun. It is always needed to see the fashion pieces and accessories in flesh since I write about them so much. Seeing the collections before the hit the stores is also great. It makes me feel like a fashion insider.

Dresses That Can Be Worn All Year Round – How To Style Them

*Collaborative post.

 

Do you have a killer dress in your closet, which you are ready to wear all year round? If you do, you need new ways to style it. Such all-purpose dresses are great. However, your friends and co-workers may notice you wearing the same outfit season in and season out.

So what can you do to diversify your favorite dress? We’ve asked fashion experts to share a few dress styling tricks that can turn one dress into many with the least effort. Read on!

1. Basic T-Shirt

Let’s make something clear. We are talking about short- or no-sleeved dresses here. If you have a favorite long-sleeved dress, it may not be suitable for the hot season. Meanwhile, short sleeves are amazing all year round.

A basic t-shirt can make any no-sleeve dress look casual while making the owner feel warmer. You can go further to get a basic long-sleeved shirt to wear underneath the dress. Don’t go crazy with the colors if your dress is multi-colored. Stick to black and white t-shirts.

 

2. Colorful Leggings

Another way to add some warmth to your outfit is to take advantage of leggings. Just like t-shirts, leggings can turn your dress into something special. For example, Boxhill miracle dresses look entirely different with and without leggings or tights.

The best part about the leggings is that you can add some color to your look without making a big investment. Change the color and wear a new outfit every day.

 

3. Strict Turtleneck

Does your favorite dress open up your shoulders too much? Don’t worry. You can wear it to a meeting when coupled with a turtleneck. Also, you can wear a turtleneck underneath the dress to sport a fashionable look.

You can also pull the turtleneck over the dress to turn it into a skirt. This can help you create a completely different outfit.

 

4. Belt Collection

Belts can change the appearance of any dress, starting from little black dresses and ending with wraps. A simple belt can become a savior for your good old dress. Don’t hesitate to purchase a nice collection of belts, from simple leather straps to large chains.

A belt can either be worn on the waist or lifted to the under the chest area to change the appearance of wraps, sweater, and t-shirt dresses.

5. Shoes and Bags

Shoes and bags can do wonders. When you wear your favorite dress with sneakers and a backpack, it looks different from when you sport high heels and a clutch. These days, you don’t have to worry about matching shoes to the bag or any of them to the dress.

Allow your imagination to run wild to help you come up with different combinations. A bag can change the outfit regardless of its size. Shoes can turn it from casual to formal and vice versa.

 

6. Scarfs

Are you a little tired of the way your dress looks or perhaps need to make it warmer? A scarf can do wonders for styling your dress. You can wear it over your shoulders, wrap it around your waste, use it to cover your head, and much more.

Large scarfs can hide the majority of your dress, revealing whatever you want to show the world.

 

7. Jewellry

Just as bags and shoes, jewelry can easily change the style of your dress. A simple silver chain can add a casual look to your attire. Meanwhile, a diamond necklace can turn it into a ball gown. Experiment with jewellry to tweak your favorite dress in many different ways.

A dress is just a small part of your outfit. You can style it to become something else with only a few accessories.

 

Top Fashion Picks for Spring Summer 2019

*Sponsored by Kture

Spring is around the corner and the Spring/Summer pieces and accessories are hitting the stores as I type. I love spring/summer fashion a lot. It is a good break from the big coats and boots. I find it refreshing to see some lighter/colourful pieces. Autumn/winter fashion is my favourite fashion season, but I am always eager to wear summery pieces once the weather warms up. The ability to show some extra skin is something I never take from granted considering the fact that I live in northern England where the weather is usually cold and miserable.

Here are my top fashion picks for spring summer 2019 –

 

KENZO Tiger Logo cotton sweatshirt £185

I am a huge fan of KENZO. There are a few KENZO pieces in my summer wardrobe already and I currently have my fashion eye on this stunning yellow Tiger Logo cotton sweatshirt. It is such a beauty! I love the logo and the bright yellow colour. It would look amazing with a pair of black/blue skinny jeans and heels.

What are you thoughts on this piece? I would so love to wear it this spring. If you are after jumpers like this stunning piece, then you are in luck. Check out the range of kenzo jumpers on kture.co.uk. There are so many trendy options available on the website.

 

 

KENZO Knit Pullover with Cotton Shirt Detail £330

This Knit Pullover with Cotton Shirt Detail is another KENZO piece I am loving. I really like the knit plus cotton design. It definitely stands out from the rest. Having this stylish shirt for spring would be lovely. It can be styled up and down, for work or for other outings. I really like this shirt. What do you think?

This River Island Faux Fur Camo Denim Miltary Coat Jacket Detachable Collar is another trendy piece I think I need. I love the camouflage print a lot, and this stylish piece ticks all the boxes. Apart from the trendy design, it is also practical, as it is light enough for spring months. I can see myself styling this coat with a pair of black jeans, heels and a simple top. It is so effortlessly chic, it won’t need too much work.

 

 

Tommy Hilfiger Poppy Backpack, Women’s Black £73.68

I find backpacks really comfy. It is a great way of having all my valuables with me when we are out and about. I find them easier to have when exploring the outdoors with the kids. This stunning black Tommy Hilfiger Poppy Backpack is a lovely accessory to have. I love the simple design. It looks like great value for money. Tommy Hilfiger clothing and accessories always catch my eye so the fact that I like this black backpack isn’t surprising. Having this lovely backpack this season will be the dream. 

 

 

Office Women’s Howie Closed Toe Heels £70

The last but not the least is the lovely looking beige (nude patent) Office Women’s Howie Closed Toe Heels. I would love this as a new addition to my shoe collection. The colour works great, I don’t have a pair in this shade so having this pair would be great. I have many outfits planned in my head already with this heels.
