Manchester brings us another sunny day and along with it came this Fashionista, who works volume to create a look that can transcend easily from day to night. Her outfit is simple, summery, sexy and can easily be copied.
First her top, which can be found anywhere at the moment, shows off her shoulders while creating a flattering, loose shape. Crop tops, such as this, are very handy to throw on over a standard outfit to play with volume. White is in this season, so find a statement top and tick all the right boxes with it, like this Fashionista. Here is a lovely version at Miss Selfridge with appliqué sleeves that fit well with the '70s vibe we’ve been enjoying recently.
Once again, the accessories make the look. This week’s Fashionista dresses her outfit up with a simple chain necklace and aviator sunglasses to match. Sunglasses are a great way to liven up a look, especially in this weather! Large, bold necklaces are also a good way to add interest to an otherwise dull outfit. For a look similar to this week’s Fashionista, here is an unusual wooden chain necklace from Topshop. For those who dare to go a little further in search of a statement, here is a Tatty Devine piece from Urban Outfitters. The beautiful colour and outspoken design make this necklace a real eye catcher.
The reason why this outfit is so good is because the shape is just right. To play with volume it is best not to have more than one loose item of clothing or the look might look frumpy. By adding a dark body con skirt underneath, this Fashionista keeps the attention on her top half and takes it away from her bottom half. The monochrome look of the outfit is very Parisian and very elegant. If you don’t have a body con skirt like this, try a dress with a loose top layered over for the same effect.
This Fashionista adds a rough edge to her outfit with the boots she is wearing. These look as though they shouldn’t go, but they somehow do. Trawl through charity shops to find a pair because once bought these are incredibly handy to have on cold (and warm apparently) day to keep your toes snug.
This week’s Fashionista has kept it simple and stylish with a look that both flatters and shows off!
