NEW IN: Fashion

3



The final instalment of my three part series is all about Fashion, specifically the newest additions to my wardrobe. Over the past few months I've picked up quite a few new pieces but rather than taking shots of them all, I thought it would be fun to create an outfit from some of them. This year I'm trying to branch out more in terms of my style, rather than staying within my comfort zone, experimenting is something that I'm finding enjoyable at the moment. 

Long coat: Coats have and probably always will be an obsession of mine. In my opinion, you can never have too many. I ended up getting this unexpectedly after going back to exchange a biker jacket. I saw this on the rails and fell in love immediately. The colour and cut of it is so dreamy. It's been made well, giving off a classy vibe. The length of it is the main detail that drew me to it. I've wanted one for ages, I love the idea of the cut drawing the eye down to your legs and feet. I think an all black outfit with silver accents along with some flats would create such a chic outfit. The fit of it is a little oversized, especially on the arms. For some, this will be a put off but for me I love it. This coat is very versatile in the sense that you can dress it down with a jumper and jeans like I have in the photo, or you can dress it up with trousers and heels. I cannot wait to get more wear out of this gorgeous coat.
  
Lace hem jumper: Over the recent Autumn/Winter season, jumpers have definitely been my go to and now we've just stepped into Spring I'm struggling to let them go. I'm holding on to the fact it's chilly so I still have an excuse to wear them. Reaching for simple jumpers that I can throw under a statement necklace is what I've been so used to, but the lace hem detailing on this jumper is what sets itself apart from the 'typical jumper'. Its 2 in 1 feature makes for a feminine look which I love, it also comes across as being smarter than any of the others I own. Featuring the prettiest cut out detail on the back also helps to evolve itself from being 'just' a jumper to a staple piece in my wardrobe. Not only is it the softest thing but now the prettiest and something I'm happy to keep reaching for (while I still can!)

Ripped jeans: Out of all the items we have in our wardrobe I think jeans are the hardest to get right. The tones, cut, fit and thickness vary so much between brands that you have to start all over again with every shop you go into. Zara has never been my go to for jeans, I much rather prefer New Look nowadays but these jeans soon became my ideal Spring/Summer pair. My current white jeans (Topshop Joni's) have definitely seen better days so picking up a new pair was on my list. There's something I love about slash hems, they give an instant edge to any outfit. Ripped jeans have certainly been on trend for a few years now and I don't see them going out of fashion anytime soon but I like this newer take of a grated effect as opposed to big old rips in the knees. If I already have details within my outfit I find adding ripped jeans on top of this can become too much. Instead, this grated effect can help add texture along with interest to your outfit without them becoming the main focus.

Cross body bag: When I was younger the bigger the bag the better but now as I'm getting older I'm all for something small and compact whilst still being able to fit all I need. This was originally my Mums but I quickly added it to my collection when she realised it wasn't really her thing after all. I love it to say the least. I think the addition of the hanging faux fur pom makes for a nice little bag. It has a flap which when lifted up reveals two compartments and also a zipped (very deep) space in the flap itself. This bag whilst looking deceiving, can actually store everything I need and more. I'm not too keen on the gold hardware but it's not that much of a big deal seeing as it ticks all the boxes elsewhere. 

Beaded choker: The choker trend has been hot for awhile now, it's safe to say I'm definitely late to the party with this. When they first came back into fashion I wasn't really fussed about chokers, in fact I found them a little too much for me seeing as they were all in the traditional 'tattoo' style that reminded me of ones I wore when I was younger. However, as time went on I loved the different styles, materials and colours that brands were bringing out. The addition of pendants and suedette styles definitely changed my mind on them. It's clear to see that I love them now, they are a quirky way to add edge to an outfit whether you're after a smart or casual look. Although you can't see the choker that well in the above shot, I like how it adds extra detail to a feminine outfit. 

I tied the outfit together with a pair of espadrilles I already had in my collection, I love how the overall outfit looks - I think it's casual yet chic. All of the items are so versatile, they can be paired with so many different things as well as being dressed up or down. 

Let me know what you think of my newest fashion items and how you might style them. What have you bought recently that you love? That's my third and final instalment in my three part series, I'd love to know what you thought of the three part idea and whether I should do anything similar in future.
