It seemed a shame to do all of the shopping for the style event last week and not to share some of my finds with you before returning them to the stores – well, returning most of them anyway. As you might imagine, there are one or two things which may find their way into my wardrobe.
Today it’s the turn of the printed pieces. There are lots of prints on the High Street at the moment from florals, to geometric, to Aztec and chequerboard.
Prints can do a great job of adding interest to a relatively plain wardrobe, working in some colour, disguising parts of us that we may prefer to disguise or drawing attention to certain areas.
From top left, going in a clockwise direction we have:
Zara trainers – mad or what? I love them!
Zara pencil skirt – lovely with a crisp white shirt, or reference one of the other colours in it in a plain top. This print can be used to good effect to draw the attention towards narrow hips and slim legs and away from other areas.
Coast A-line skirt, great for those who suit a skirt with a little more fabric in it – keep the top fitted, to show off a neat waist.
Zara printed shirt – A fab piece for curvier ladies to wear with fitted trousers, or as a beach cover up.
Again, from top left in a clockwise direction:
H&M geometric print trousers – great fabric, thick and supportive with stretch in it. Lovely with a simple top, black blazer and heels for an evening out;
Coast dress – loving the cobalt blue and acid green in this dress – great neckline too;
Zara top – as the print is on the back and with the front being plain, it’s a fantastic piece for those who would like to dabble their toe in the print water but are a little nervous of doing so. This would work well with cobalt blue skinny jeans (Gap has khakis and skinnies in this colour) and converse or flat sandals/ballet pumps/smoking slippers for an every day look.
Check in tomorrow – it will be the turn of the yellow pieces!
