Get Bright Get Right!

22 Jan

The new looks this season are BRIGHT! We can’t seem to let go of the colour-blocking trend which we saw sweeping the catwalk and high street last year! The great thing about brights is that you don’t need a lot to really liven up your outfit just a touch here or there will give you that spring feeling a little early! I’m loving this coral shade so pretty (actually I had to re-do this post to edit out some of the many many coral/orange items I had chosen!). If your workplace is relaxed on colour I would highly advise these high-waisted trousers from Forever 21 paired with a crisp white shirt would be so refreshing for Spring! Another great option for a quick work to night out look would be to pair this hot pink peplum top (Awear) with a pencil skirt, it’s feminine but well-cut for a working wardrobe. I have of course thrown in many casual items like these pink skinny jeans from River Island, a bright blue top from Forever 21 and coral boat shoes also from River Island easy to mix and match with tamer shades!

My favourite item here has to be the illuminous yellow laptop case from ASOS the perfect injection of BRIGHT!!

Not everything is black and white..

15 Jan

Grey (via dictionary.com)

of a neutral tone, intermediate between black and white…dismal or dark, gloomy…neutral or dull.

All ways I would also describe the month of January.  Without the Christmas lights and decorations everything starts to look a little gloomy… however grey does not have to be dull! Grey is an all-flattering colour as it comes in so many shades and is less stark on the skintone than jet black! It’s an effortlessly chic colour appropriate for day and night and especially for the working girl. It can be worked as shown above in a number of different ways from office wear e.g. the Zara overcoat or long pleated skirt, for the pretty/boho in the ASOS grey sheer pleated dress or the rock chic in the horse print mini-dress paired with a leather jacket and heels. It’s such an accessible shade and can be accented with colour. Turquoise blues and coral pinks work particularly well for a pop of colour!

Don’t know where to start adding grey to your closet? You can’t go wrong with a grey cashmere jumper! Effortless and easy.
