Stepping into Spring trends

The start of the new season means that there are lots of new trends to try. Here is a round up of some of my favourites for Spring 2020…

White shirtYour favourite white shirt gets an upgrade

White shirts are versatile and easy to wear but they aren’t usually the focal point of your outfit. Until now. Spring 2020 sees the rise of the oversized white shirt, my personal favourite is this one from river island because it brings in the puff sleeve trend as well and I love the detailing on the sleeves.

Still easy to wear, and for those colder days wear it sticking out the bottom of a nice cozy jumper – or if you’re feeling brave (which I don’t think I am) you could wear with a sweater vest.

Brighter days means brighter outfits, and this year you don’t have to wait until summer to get out your neon gear.

If you aren’t keen on the walking highlighter vibe an easy way to do the neon trend is through your accessories. A pair of bright trainers will spice up any outfit! Want to go a bit bolder? Coordinate your top to your shoes. By having a different colour in the middle it means the colour isn’t too overpowering but it’s still a bright and fun outfit.

Florals for spring may be groundbreaking, but there are other ways to get a girly outfit vibe. Maybe you’re not quite ready to crack out the summer dresses, the tiered trend is a nice transition.

This Topshop dress is one of my favourites. The dark base colour makes this a great outfit for those grey-er spring days, but the ruffles give it a lighter feel. Also this is the perfect day to night dress. Dress down with some Dr Martens or dress it up with a pair of strappy heels.

Fabulous Faux Leather

And you thought leather way just for winter – how wrong we were! Leather looks get a spring makeover with thinner fabrics and brighter colours.

Faux leather ‘shackets’ are very of the moment, but I personally like a little bit more warmth and so this Asos jacket is a winner in my book. We all know that sunshine is far from guaranteed in spring so a good jacket is a must. One of the many advantages of faux leather is that it is waterproof as well as stylish.

After the rise of THAT Zara dress last summer it’s no surprise that everyones gone dotty for spots (pun 100% intended). Polka dots are big this season, particularly on dresses.

This Miss Selfridge mini dress is perfect for spring. Pastels, puff sleeves and polka dots – what’s not to love! Although perhaps one to crack out later in the season when the weather is a little bit warmer, paired with a denim jacket and some white trainers.

Christmas party outfit ideas

With so many parties at this time of year it can be hard to think of outfits for all of them and hardest of all is the work Christmas do. Can’t wear the same thing as last year because even though it’s likely no-one else will remember, you will and you’ll be on edge until someone points it out. Don’t want to break the bank, and need to chose something that you can wear again and again. Sound familiar? Never fear – I have trawled the internet to bring you 7 Christmas party outfits ideas for daytime and evening (and when I say the internet, yes I do mean ASOS…)

The statement blazer (£39.99)

All black everything + statement sparkly blazer = outfit winner.

Who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle this time of year? If you’re not so keen on the walking disco ball vibe this is perfect for you.

The sequin mini (£20)Screenshot 2019-12-04 at 21.48.07

It’s a classic party look, the sparkly mini dress.

Dress down with tights and a black top underneath, or glam it up with heels. What’s not to love?

The boujee blouse (£32)

Easy but stylish, paired with black jeans or leather trousers and heels the perfect party outfit.

The colour of this one isn’t too festive so you could definitely rewear this throughout the year.

ASOS Blouse


The sparkly midi (£28)Screenshot 2019-12-04 at 22.00.35

Not keen on potentially flashing someone when you walk up the stairs? Midi dresses are the way to go.

This ASOS dress has a gorgeous open back and being copper sequins rather than silver, this is a little more subtle while still giving off a party vibe.

ASOS Sequin midi dress

Another classic, the sequin top. Black jeans, boots and you’re done.

If you feel like being a bit bolder, there is a silver version of this top too.

ASOS Green sequin cami

The embellished skirt (£8)Screenshot 2019-12-04 at 21.53.55

Another one you could dress up for an evening event or down for a daytime do.

Tights and a more casual top with black heeled boots still brings some party for a daytime look, or with a strappy top and heels for evening.

ASOS Wrap skirt

The statement shoe (£40)Screenshot 2019-12-04 at 21.58.16

Subtle and easy to rewear throughout the festive season without feeling like you’re wearing the same outfit over and over.

They don’t have to be sparkly silver boots, you could go for a bright red or a bright green.

ASOS Boots


What are your go to party outfits? While writing this I realised I have a tendency to go for all black everything…

Autumn obsessions

The start of September means the start of a new season for fashion and I am SO EXCITED! Here are some of the trends I am looking forward to making the most of now that the weather has cooled down a bit:

1. Corduroy 

This blazer co-ord from Nasty Gal is perfect for autumn, style them together or separately and the colour is perfect for the summer – autumn transition.

Personally I think a corduroy dress is a staple for autumn. It has the potential for so many layers – long sleeve tee underneath, snuggly jumper on top and a coat once it starts to get really chilly. H&M have some nice ones but this blue zip dress is another Nasty Gal find.

You can never go wrong with an oversized shirt and I particularly like the colour of this Pull&Bear one – giving me all the autumn feels!

2. Slouchy knits

I am a sucker for anything soft and warm so slouchy jumpers are my favourite thing about autumn. It’s always good to have a neutral coloured jumper on standby, particularly if you are a fan of bright colours and patterns (like me). I am loving all the jumpers in Fashion Influx’s In The Style collection but I especially like the slouchy jumper in beige and this roll neck jumper dress in white.

3. Jewel tones

Just because the weather might be turning grey doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to! Add a pop of colour to your outfit using your accessories – for example this belt from River Island. You can never go too far wrong with blue and this blue wrap blouse, also River Island, is perfect for those ‘jeans and nice top’ occasions. The pictures don’t do justice to the colour of this Nasty Gal polo neck, guaranteed to brighten up any autumn day.
