It may have been over a year since I put together one of these ‘How I Style’ posts but that’s okay, were just gonna move past that. I’ve also made the small change from How to Style to How I Style, mainly because I think Fashion is totally personal and up for discussion. So this (clearly very short) series of posts are put up for inspiration, than anything else.
Anyways, before I get into it can I just ask why is it whenever I buy something full price it always go on sale when I come to write about it in a blog post? Its just my luck. So basically the Corset Tunic dress that’s featured in this post, is from Topshop. Currently on sale for £15 down from £28. You can get your hands on it here. If you would like to check out other clothes that were on sale at the time of me writing the post you can do here. Andddd miniscule rant over now.
The first thing I’ve been loving to pair with the tunic dress is my all time favourite coat from River Island. I realise its a trench coat and maybe something that seems more appropriate for the cooler spring weather, which it is. But I feel like I can still wear it now, especially with the U.K’s weather. Plus the light pink shade definitely radiates summer vibes.
I was tempted to wear my COFFEE lace up trainers, only because the colour would have coordinated well with the coat. BUT, I soon realised, it just wouldn’t have looked right, and I didn’t want to clash the sophistication of the coat with the casual trainers. HOWEVER, I think if I’d paired this outfit with my Blush ‘Sonia’ Velvet Sandals, that have a small heel to them, then it would have upgraded the outfit from day wear to evening.
For some reason, putting together this outfit really made me feel good. I think because the more I realised what I was wearing, the more I realised how coordinated I was. For example (are you ready for this?) I was wearing this Thin Velvet Ring Choker Necklace (what a mouthful) and the ring matched the other rings that were the detailing on the dress. Both rings being silver, I opted for silver jewellery; an anklet, a bracelet and earrings. PLUS all that silver even matched the silver zip on the leather jacket, ok, that might be too far. And obviously I was wearing the choker, jacket, shoes, all black to match.
I also think this dress would look super cute with a denim jacket. I always read other peoples blog posts and I think someone had got theirs from River Island. But if anyone else has any suggestions. I’d LOVE to know. I even saw a camouflage jacket in H&M, I’m so annoyed I didn’t buy it and I think that’d look pretty cool too. This is probably when I’d wear my trainers if I had a more laid back jacket to wear.
