My University Style Diaries
My University style really reflects my own personal taste in clothing, playing with colour blocking and texture, as opposed to print or a lot of bold colours. Therefore, with this outfit I’ve chosen to block the lighter, nude tones from my feet up to my waist, then create a contrast with the black. This kind of plays on the traditional white tee and black jeans vibe, where the darker colour is on the bottom half. As here, the weather was still quite warm, I flipped that rule on it’s head and added a bit more interest to the look.
This is why I love these stone coloured, paper bag waist, cropped trousers from New Look; as they are a great basic for so many different outfits and occasions. They look great paired with converse for a relaxed everyday look, but also fab paired with heels and a graphic tee for a night out. I love their versatility and the fact that New Look them in so many different colours. So, there really is a pair out there for everyone.
This cami top from New Look is a classic, essential piece in my wardrobe, and I honestly couldn’t live without it. It’s the perfect black, strappy camisole that looks good both in the day and at night, and also fit’s amazingly. I love how the lace detail around the neckline adds a bit of femininity, and again plays with texture, one of the key aspects of my personal style. Thank you again New Look, for such a beautiful piece, which I wish you bring out more of in a future collection, as I can’t find any other lace camisole’s that are amazing as this one.
When it comes to the accessories, I like to keep them classic and that’s why I’ve paired it with my go-to everyday jewellery pieces. The star of my collection is this beautiful, rose gold, cluse watch; with it’s simple face and sleek design, that always adds a touch of chic to my outfits. Then, I’ve got my two silver, Joma Jewellery bracelets, which are super comfortable to wear and are an affordable everyday piece of jewellery to wear. Along with that is my loved Links Of London bracelet, which is not only a classic addition to my collection, but also a beautiful anniversary gift from Ed.
The shoes are the final element to my look and probably my favourite piece, as they are comfortable yet chic and super on trend. I love how I can pair them with a girly everyday outfit, and they will instantly fit straight in. They really bridge the gap for me, between a comfortable trainer and a fashionable shoe. Therefore, I’m always wearing them and they just about live on my feet. Thank you Converse, they are such beauties and worth every bit of the 62.99 price tag.
Of course, I can’t forget about my latest designer purchase, this gorgeous pair of tortoise shell sunglasses from Ralph Lauren. They’re a super classic style, and are a match for any one of my outfits. I know I will keep them for many years to come and so far they have definitely been worth the money. You can read all about these beauties, in a blog post I wrote recently HERE.
