Hey friends and fashion lovers! Welcome to my looks of the week. I’m the street style and fashion obsessed Senior Picture Researcher for LOOK. I’m a recovering shopping addict with a slight addiction to bargain hunting and all things style and beauty-related. You will usually find me rocking a bold lippy or trying to make every outfit work with a rather excessive collection of Nike trainers… I am currently on a self imposed trainer ban. When it comes to my personal style, I like to try it all, with my biggest style inspirations being Jenna Lyons and Solange Knowles – I love their eclectic looks and how they aren’t afraid to work daring and unlikely fashion combinations. Being a tall and curvy girl, dressing for my shape can be quite tricky, but I’m a firm believer that fashion is for every body type. So if you’re like me and won’t pass on a cool trend or two but enjoy putting your own twists on a look, then stay tuned….
1. Go head to toe berry tones
Like most people, I like to start off the week with a power look. Mondays are always busy so why not put on something that makes you look good and feel great? I nabbed this coat in the Mango sale, I love it because if you have long arms like me it can be tricky getting coats to fit, so the mid-length sleeves work a charm.
I’m really into berry tones this season, so went for a head-to-toe berry mash-up with a few metallic accents by way of accessories. Because it’s still chilly, I decided to layer my coat over my Zara sleeveless jacket, which makes getting on the Tube at the end of the day less stuffy.
2. Taking it sporty and chic
I’m obsessed with my Nike trainers, so I teamed them with this cosy maxi jumper dress from Primark. It’s snug and warm and flatters my curves, and with a quick shoe change I can go from desk to drinks in a flash.
I love my Helen Moore faux fur scarf, too – it works really well as an instant outfit lifter and is super warm. I then mixed MAC Cyber and Lime Crime Velvetine lipsticks to complete this look.
3. Pom-pom’s anyone?
Zara Badge Jacket, £59.99
My love of streetwear always finds its way into most of my outfits, which is why I teamed a tough necklace and a sporty sweater with a lace Topshop skirt for this look. This Zara jacket stole my heart – I love the badge detailing and how it works to add a cool edge to my outfit. Teamed with my Topshop pompom lace ups, this makes for an easy dressed-down chic work look for me.
