Sleeves are such a big thing this season, every store seems to be bringing out more and more items that have flared sleeves, tassels , trumpet sleeves… You name it and they probably have it. 😉 I’ve never been one who follows trends but I’ve always been a fan of shapes and the silhouette that clothing can create. So despite not being a trend follower, large sleeves and ruffles are one of the those trends that I am willing to try out! 😛
Clashing colours are something that I love wearing; it may be difficult to get right but it works so well in adding something special to your look. Why not take it a step further and go for clashing prints as well as clashing colours? In this look I experimented with printed trousers which I don’t often do, but I just wanted to try something new and step outside of my comfort zone.
I found these grid patterned high waisted trousers from a charity shop in London a little while back. I use to think that printed clothing were hard to wear; many patterns often highlight the parts of our body that we wouldn’t necessarily like to have on show. However patterns such as grids and gingham often sculpt the body in a very flattering way, so oping for these kinds of prints, especially when high waisted are perfect for giving you a flattering silhouette.
Whenever I wear pattern pieces, I tend to opt for something a little more simple but still bold in colour to keep eyes turning 😛 . If you’ve been reading my blog for a little while or follow me on Instagram then you will know how much I’m into unique shapes and cuts of clothing. I recently purchased this super cute bell sleeved blouse from Zara; I’m in love with the origami feel that it has. It’s one of those pieces that is a little “racey” but still so classy because of it’s simple crisp texture. Bell sleeves are so in at the moment and the added pleats are just a double whammy !
The finally touches to this look were definitely a little colour pop with my orange rucksack and furry shoes. I find that rucksacks are both so practical for everyday use but also just look so cute! This little number is another Zara classic and it’s one of my favourite bags to use at the moment! Continuing with the idea of clashing colours and prints, I’m wearing my blue fur fringes to add some more texture and little more colour. Of course you can never have too much colour, (well nearly 😉 ).
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to my friend Marida for taking these stunning shots! If you wanted to know, these photos were taken at Sky Gardens in London. It’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to in the city and gives you such a fab view of London! I guess the best part is that it’s free to go, you just need to book your tickets three weeks in advance!
I hope you liked this look and I shall see you all in my next one!
Ciao for now, Izzy xxx
