The Best Style Advice You’ll Ever Hear

IMG_0471

What is your style? Is it I-throw-the-first-thing-I-can-find-on-and-leave-the-house chic? Or do you plan your outfit to the tiniest detail, to the point of matching your nails with your shoes? Do you even know what your style is?

In the age of social media, it is easier than ever to find what your favourite celebrities wore in the last 24 hours for style-inspo. On a daily basis, our feeds are saturated with images of A-listers wearing the latest and greatest fashion, and often we are given the impressions that we should buy-into achieving that look. How many times have you considered throwing out everything you own so you can re-invent yourself around the ideas of perfection you have found on the internet? However, the majority of your role-models pay more money than most of us earn in a year for a team of stylists. Those outfits you envy are not even a reflection of the person who wore it individual taste half the time.

Many of us believe that the key to great style is to own the latest ‘must-have’ items and combine them to have that Instagram-worthy outfit. This simply isn’t true. Style is something that belongs to you, like the way you dance or the way you act on a day-to-day basis. It is an eternal characteristic of your being. You are the Creative Director of how you present yourself to the world through what you wear, your style.

The iconic designer Ralph Lauren, spoke the words:

‘Style is very personal. It has nothing to do with fashion. Fashion is over quickly. Style is forever.’

You could spend your entire life wearing whatever is considered to be fashionable in the moment, but you wouldn’t be being true to yourself. You would be a slave to fashion, and your style would not reflect the amazing things that make you an individual.

The best style advice you will ever hear is to be true to yourself. Wear whatever you like. That’s it. It’s okay if you would prefer to wear a pair of Converse than wear a pair of Louboutins and it’s okay if you would prefer wearing skirts that skim your thighs than wearing jeans. Choose not to care what other people might think, for if we all thought the same it would be an incredibly boring world. Choose style, choose confidence, choose you.

✨ MTV VMA’s Best Dressed ✨

One of the music industry’s most talked about awards shows, the MTV VMAs, was held last night at Madison Square Garden in New York. 

Previous years have seen much controversy including the beginning of the Kanye West vs Taylor Swift drama and Nicki Minaj asking Miley Cyrus, “what’s good?”. 

This year however, was rather pleasant: Beyoncé topped Madonna’s record and became the most awarded VMA artist of all time, Kanye West used his 4 minute window to showcase his video for Fade, featuring Teyana Taylor and as well as winning the Michael Jacksom Video Vanguard Award, Rihanna performed 4 times and sang virtually all of her songs and Drake gushed about his love for her. 

However, I’m sure there’s still a question that comes to mind. Who was the best dressed? That’s what we want to know. See the red carpet royalty below:

This bank holiday weekend I got to celebrate with my best friend on her birthday. We spent the day sipping champagne and made the most out of the rare British sunshine with a very British BBQ.

I was rummaging through my clothes, praying that I would find something to wear amongst the mass of no’s, when I came across this Manière De Voir dress that I of course completely forgot I owned. 

I adore the tie-up details on the side of the waist and legs, this dress is very figure-hugging too. The best thing is that you can dress this up with a pair of heels or dress it down with a pair of trainers. 

How did you spend your Bank Holiday Weekend?

Trending: Jumper + Mini Skirt

It’s been a busy couple of days hence the lack of posts.

I just wanted to share a quick outfit post. I’ve been so inspired by the AW16 jumper and mini skirt trend that I decided to try it out for myself. Although I’m a season ahead 😉

Steal The Look! Runway vs Highstreet

There are certain things that don’t just capture my eye for a second. There are certain things that ignite a strong desire and stay with me until I get them. 

When I saw the runway photos from the Moschino SS15 show, I was in awe of the pink leather skirt. I have remained so ever since. I had to get it one way or another…

Last month was the first time I’d been paid from my new job, so I trailed all my favourite sites like Topshop, Missguided, River Island etc and didn’t find anything that particularly stood out to me. So I visited House of CB and scrolled through the entire website until I went to the skirts section. Then, I fell in love again…

A blush pink leather skirt appeared on my screen and if life was a film, ‘Hallelujah’ would’ve been the background song. I’d lusted for the Moschino skirt for a year and I’d finally found the perfect solution. For £69 how could I resist?

Top – Topshop, Skirt – House of CB, Shoes – Lipsy, Clutch – New Look ✨

   
The skirt is of beautiful quality; it looks and feels more expensive than it is. 

LESSON: Never give up searching! Life has a funny way of giving you exactly what you want.

OOTN: NYE 

Happy 2016! I hope this year brings you blessings, success and happiness. I’ve always loved the feeling of starting fresh. Every year I write a list of goals I want to achieve in the next 365, (this year 366) days. 

As I recently turned 18, I spent my night at a club in Brighton with some of the girls. One thing that’s really surprised me is that no matter how far you venture out you always bump into people you know, so I got to spend some time with old friends too. 

 

Jumpsuit: Missguided, Heels and Cuff: Primark, Rings: Topshop


It’s a common fact that I’m obsessed with black clothes; it mixes and matches with so many other colours! I decided to paint my nails a dark berry red and add some sparkly accessories to make it stand out. 
For the glam, I opted for my trademark smokey eye and nude lips. My makeup collection has grown rapidly, so I’ll post some reviews soon.

Base: Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup mixed with L’Oréal Paris True Match Liquid Foundation
