charity – you also get the added feel good factor for free! The outfits I create will be regularly posted on their page, so take a second to check it out, ‘Like’ it and then if you spot something you fancy and you’re quick enough you’ll be in with a chance of purchasing it. This is the first outfit I put together using the massive trend for prints as inspiration…..
Print is a key look for this Spring / Summer and is going to be seen on everything from scarves, shoes and bags to jeans, jackets and blouses. Keep an eye out for African inspired, animal, floral and paisley pieces and either wear it on it’s
own or for a particularly on trend look, be brave and clash top and bottom with alternative patterns but make sure that they are quite different in style ie top is striped, bottoms are floral.
Stella Mccartney’s collection played with paisley and her models went down the runway wearing pyjama style suits, shorts and shirts. If you like the idea of paisley but don’t want to look like you’ve just got out of bed, this top from Next is a great way of incorporating it into your everyday wardrobe. It’s a really versatile piece that can be dressed up and worn with a skirt (as picture) or for a more casual look with a pair of brightly coloured skinny jeans and wedges.
I’ve teamed it with this skirt that highlights the yellow from the blouse (another strong colour for this season) and accessorised with a vintage bronze belt and bangles. The bright green bag and orange bracelet help to bring the whole outfit together and give it a stylish, summery feel.
