So February is over and thank goodness it did not drag like January did, February is one of the best months for anyone interested in fashion as most S/S shows are previewed, including London and Paris Fashion Week. With new seasons, come new trends which formed my basis for this post. Some months my fashion changes greatly and I think that this was one of those months, I’ve recently been feeling the sports luxe trend, which I still of course love, I have too been into more relaxed styles, however, I feel as if recently I’ve been transgressing to my more preppy and put-together vibe. Although, I’m not going to lie, I honestly just dress to how I am feeling on that day when I get changed.
The first favourite I have for February is this grey faux fur coat from Cameo Rose at New Look, I did not expect to find such a great piece in New Look, however it is literally THE perfect faux fur. I love how oversized the collar of the coat is making it have a perfect silhouette when you wear it. This coat just dresses up any outfit and is a perfect colour for spring. It looks cute with skirts and cool with jeans so it is definitely a piece worth every penny.
The second trend (which will never not be in the spotlight) I’m loving at the moment is stripes, I’ve always loved striped shirts but lately I’m really enjoying striped jumpers. I’ve had this Zara one (second picture) for a while but I have recently found new ways to style it, which I think is why I’m loving the vibes stripes bring. I love thicker stripes as I think they work better with my block colour outfits. Not going to lie I think I’m feeling my inner Megan Ellaby, release your inner tomboy and child as Megan would say. On a side note I think it is amazing how in the spotlight Manchester fashion bloggers are at the moment from bloggers like Megan to Sophia Rosemary and Hannah Whiting, it is very inspiring and exciting.
Shearling jackets, yes I gave in and jumped on the bandwagon for this the trend, some might say it’s basic and although every girl may own a Topshop faux shearling jacket, it is not given enough credit. Not only are the jackets super warm (I live in Manchester) they seem to make every outfit instantly chicer, and they are great quality, I would highly recommend you come to the dark side and purchase one!
Polo shirts, need I say more. If you know me you will know my polo shirt collection is growing out of hand and all I can say is that I blame Miss Dua Lipa. They are just so cool, either; cropped, oversized, striped, plain, logo polo’s, there are just too many options and I just can’t help myself from buying more, sorry student loan.
It is also no surprise that trainers are one of the best things in the world, it is also no surprise that I love Gucci, so when they started doing trainers, yes I was in awe and was ready to splurge, well my mum was, sorry for being a fashionable child Claire, I know you’d be way richer if I didn’t have such expensive taste, but I know where I get it from so you can’t complain. They are literally one of my favourite items in my wardrobe and they go with any outfit and instantly make it look expensive and chic. They look great during the colder months but I cannot wait to wear them in summer too. If I could I would own every single pair Gucci have made and I’m not going to lie to you, I’ve got my eye on the rainbow sneakers they do. They are truly a great investment piece and make my outfits.
