Valentines Day is fast approaching and is a time for you to celebrate not only being in a relationship with an amazing person you love, but also to celebrate youself, if you’re single this year. Whether you’re taken or single, you still want to enjoy the day and look amazing doing it, so I’m working with Zaful this Valentines Day to give you some style inspiration and show you some of the beautfiul pieces they’ve got on offer for you to pick up.

When it comes to Valentines this year I want to look feminine and girly, as well as still challenging a chic and elegant look. So my key colour palette is going to be Red, Black and White, with a hint of cream and blush to go along side it. This is because they are not only appropriate colours for the day, but I always think that Red looks beautiful on women and shows a real feminine strength. It looks perfect as a dress, jumper, a statement jumpsuit or just as an accessory to an outfit; with a pair of red shoes or a good old red lip.

So, if you’re looking for a red piece this Valentines Day, this Crochet Cami Dress from Zaful would be a perfect buy. Lace is always such a gorgeous look and so why not wear it in a full piece this year. It would look beautiful paired simply with a pair of nude heels and some bouncy curls, or create a bit more of a european look by pairing it with a loose low bun. You can see more of the lovely dresses they have to offer when you click here. There’s also room for some gorgeous red underwear this Valentines Day, and body suits are the must buy this year. So, this Sheer Lace one from Zaful is the best buy for you. It still creates a sexy look, but keeps it classy and elegant; which you can’t ever beat with underwear. There’s lots more gorgeous choices over on the Zaful website if you’re looking for a new piece this year.

A Chic New Years Eve Outfit

IMG_3136IMG_3140

Getting dressed up is one of my favourite things to do, and especially when it’s an outfit that I love. You don’t really get the chance to do it every day, as you’re heading to uni or work, so it’s so nice to spend the time to do your hair and makeup and choose a great outfit to live the night in. New Years Eve is always a special occasion for me and means a lot, so this outfit will have some many memories for me from an amazing night with family, friends and my boyfriend.

IMG_3139The main piece of my outfit was this gorgeous blush pink blazer from LKBennett, and was also such a bargain. It was such a great buy from Biscester Outlet village, and was supposed to be orginally around £348, and I got it for only £83. I couldn’t believe the price tag when i first saw it on the rail, and as soon as i tried it on i fell in love with it. Not only is the colour so gorgeous, it also fits like a glove and looks so classic. It looks elegant and chic, but still has a young, feminine twist, which i know will never go out of style. It’s a piece ill be able to keep in my wardrobe for years and something i know I’ll love forever.

So to make the most of this gorgeous piece, I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit fairley simple and put together, to draw the look into one. To do this, I paired the blazer with my favourite black lace cami from new look. I love how chic and femine this looks, and it contrasts the hard tailoring of the blazer perfectly. It’s also so comfortable and such a staple in my wardrobe. I just wish they brought them out again, as i’ve wanted more ever since, and really fancy a grey, mink or blush pink one.

Then, to finish the look off I paired it with a pair of grey, faux leather trousers. They might look a bit weird, but they add so much class to an outfit and a bit of luxury, as it’s not the traditional denim jeans. As well as the trousers, I wanted to add a bit of sparkle to my outfit, and so i added thsi goregous opal necklace, that i bought from a small independant jewellery stall a few years ago. I dont get that much chance to wear it, but it looked perfect with this outfit and the pink of the blazer picked up the pink of the opal perfectly.

Spring Style Inspiration & 3 Wearable Trends

Spring is finally starting to appear, as the evenings get lighter and the weather is getting so much warmer. So, we also have to alter what items we pull out of wardrobe everyday, to suit this new season. This year it’s all about the white that’s contrasted with lot’s of bright tones, especially pink and canary yellow, they’re two massive colours this season. There’s also the classic denim thrown in, with embroidery, lace and also a good love for suede as well. Spring 2017 really is a large mix of different trends, styles and  taste’s to form one huge, inclusive fashion season. So, here’s a bit of style inspiration to get your creative styling juices flowing…

Trends are also a massive part of the fashion world, and something that even though we might be completely unaware of, really do rule the entire design world. However, we can’t all afford the latest Gucci belt or the newest Burberry trench, but we can look at the trends for inspiration and make them wearable in everyday style.

Suede

The suede trend is still hanging around from when we had the 70’s colour palette revival back in 2015, however its had a bit more of a classic edge put onto it. Now it’s all about using suede in a luxurious way and to add a different element to an outfit. Wearing it through a biker jacket is bang on trend right now, and mix that with the brights trend and you have one high fashion item for 2017. However, I much prefer to keep it more tonal and go for the creams, brown and beige’s, that can be worn with anything and are a true wardrobe staple in summer, when you need a light jacket you can just throw on with your outfit.

The Staple Accessory

We can’t all afford, or even justify in spending hundreds of pounds on the latest white the to hit the catwalk or the newest trench style, however we do all love to invest in a good staple accessory. They’re a perfect way to add a luxury stamp to your outfit and instantly bring your whole look to life. I’m thinking a killer pair of statement red heels, a structured bag or even something designer, if you want to invest in a higher quality piece.

Layering

This has to be one of the easiest trends to achieve and one that honestly looks the most effective. When you want to create a really stylish look, the key is to think about different texture’s, tonal colours and different styles. So, think about layering a polo neck under your biker jacket, or add a camisole under your open white shirt. Not only does it look like you’ve put more effort into putting your look together, it also looks so much ore unique and stylish.

What trends are you loving this spring season?
