To be honest, I’m usually not up to date with trends, but thanks to social media I’m slowly picking up on them. So when Farfetch asked a few bloggers to “Style The Trend” and create a look inspired by one of the major trends for spring summer 2016, I thought, why not take up the challenge? One of those spring summer trends is totally giving me style envy and that’s the Cold Shoulder Trend! The Cold Shoulder Trend Just as the name suggests, the cold shoulder trend is all about baring your shoulders. Be it with off shoulder dresses or tops with shoulder cut outs. What I like about it is that it’s subtly sexy, but playful at the same time. I personally don’t like showing too much skin, but the cold shoulder trend is one of the few 80’s styles I’d actually wear. I think it’s something for everyone,…
I really started to develop a liking for independent designers and brands. It’s the whole aspect of finding something new and discovering their individual stories that draws me to them. This outfit actually features a few of those findings! It’s a really casual outfit like always, but I love the combination of different textures: a faux leather jacket with a silk shirt and a canvas backpack.
Let me confess: In the fours years since moving out of my parents’ home, I’ve probably used my iron a handful of times. It wouldn’t be too much of a problem if I was a fan jerseys, but of course I have to be into delicate silks and button up shirts. But Philips was so kind to send me one after Fashion Week to try it out myself at home.
I’m looking forward to the days when I can freely wear skirts again, without having to worry about freezing legs or holes in my tights. At the moment it seems like a faraway future, but at least it’s officially Spring now, so that’s definitely a start. Though, fickle as the London weather is, you do get the odd sunny day with warm temperatures, and that’s when I had the chance to wear my favourite bomber jacket and midi skirt combination.
