Fashion Crush

Firstly, I'd like to apologise for my absence recently, my posts have been far and few between. My internet decided to break on me about 3 days a go, and has been on and off since. Been the bad tempered person I am, I vowed to not used it (major paddy)... anyway, I've got over it now and here I am.

I'm absolutely loving statement trousers at the moment. Theres head turning prints to suit every shape and size. And what better way to welcome in spring 2013 than with some bright hues and an eye catching outfit.


Day in the office


1) Topshop - Diamond Mono Jaquard - £42
2)Topshop - Tuxedo Panel trousers - £85
3) Topshop - Mini Blackwatch trousers - £40
Although these aren't bold prints or bright colours, I thought it would be a good place to start. Why wear the same old boring suit to the office? Pair any of these printed trousers with a blazer and a sheer shirt for a superb work outfit!
Number 2 isn't exactly "printed" but I love the shape on these and I think they would be extremely diverse addition to any wardrobe, put with a printed shirt/top and some black heels and your ready for drinks with the girls... perfect!

Night out

1) ASOS - Trousers in abstract - £35
2) Warehouse - Embellished trousers - was £60 now £12
3) ASOS - Peg trousers in print - was £30 now £12

These prints are lovely, and perfect for a night out at this time of the year, it's still cold and snowy , but its about time we got our colours and prints out for spring, so these are the perfect answer. They make a great fashion statement whilst still feeling classy, comfortable and most importantly WARM!

The picture above of the warehouse embellished trousers does not do them any justice... so here's a couple more pictures for you! They're such a bargain at £12!

Was £60 -  Now £12

What to wear with printed trousers?

Bold prints on our bottom halves can be very daunting, which is why many people seem to opt for a brighter top and plain bottoms! Here's some items which could be teamed perfectly with these trousers for a fantastic outfit.

1) Embellished neck top - Topshop - £35
2) Oversized Monochrome Spot Shirt - Topshop - £38
3) BooHoo Suedette Platform Shoe boot - £35
4) BooHoo Mariska Court - £25
Hope you all liked this post! What's your fashion crush at the moment? Is there any of these trousers you'd wear?

"I want what they got..."

Match made in heaven

Together they have created their very own signature style, a mixture of class and fun - how to pull off the songstresses sassy look.

Who's Rita Ora's Stylist?

The face behind the style. As much as Rita is pro-active about her style, there is more brains behind this fashion creation. Mr Kyle De'Volle. The Brit stylist and image consultant has been friendly with Rita for 7 years.


What's so amazing about Rita Ora's style?

It's a very contrasting look - it's original whilst refreshing, vintage whilst modern, feminine whilst grunge. She is fast becoming my number 1 girl crush. It's the use of heavy layering (seen above), baggy flannel crop tee's, and sexy short hot pants that are quickly making her fashion a dream. It's now easy to see why she is so addictive.

Get the look ...

My trusty next coats

I recently joined the next blogger network, I love next, I always buy my key pieces from there (t-shirts, leggings etc). But more to the point of this post, each year I buy my winter coat and spring jackets from there, and they have never let me down. They wear and wash so well, because they are such good quality (yes, I am extremely fussy).

Jacket - Next £55
I love this jacket I think it's a twist on the latest leather biker jacket trend. It's reasonably priced considering the quality and the wear you could get out of it. It could warn (like below) with jeans or chinos for a more casual look, or dressed up with heels, leggings and a nice top/dress for a night out.

What to wear? What to wear?

Shoes - Miss Selfridge £50.00
 I love these shoes, they are next on my "I really really want" list! They will go with anything - dresses, skirts, jeans, leggings, disco pants! Also I think they are rather edgy, and even though they are quite plain I think they could still be a key piece in an outfit.
Skirt - Miss Selfridge £25.00 

I love skater skirts, purely because I think they are so flattering, diverse and easy to wear! I wear my black one none-stop. You can dress them up for a night out, or shove on a jumper for a cosy day! This would be ideal for a night out, teamed with a diamante collared top for a nice classy look. At £25.00 I think it's quite a bargain.

Top - Topshop £30
I really like this top,  I saw this in store, a girl in the changing room next to me was trying it on and it looks REALLY nice. It's one of them tops that would make you look and feel good whenever you wore it. It's effortless, and like the skater skirt could be dressed up - teamed with a skirt, Or dressed down with leggings or jeans.
Top - Topshop £35.00
This top is slightly on the expensive side, but it would look lovely with the PU skater skirt. The lace would make the look less grungy and more girly (not that there is anything wrong with a bit of grunge). Plus I just have an obsession with black lace, we all know the secret that black is slimming, and as a size 12 girl I find black lace really easy to wear and quite flattering.
