YOUR OUTFIT:

Top: Pretty Little Thing £10.00

Leggings: River Island £25.00

Jacket: Boohoo £25.00

This outfit is your typical 90s mixed with a bit of grunge; it’s what I like to call ‘the reversed jeans and flannel look’.

Rather than a check shirt, you’ve got the grunge aspect from the trousers, which allows the denim jacket to become the centrepiece in this look, ultimately keeping you balanced between styles.

The bardot top and leggings are very flattering and will do justice for your figure (just think Sandy in Grease). The tight clothes also work favours in dressing up the oversized denim jacket.

When adding shoes, it is important you know which direction you want to take the outfit. Adding some black ankle boots will make the outfit grungier, however adding trainers will make the look more laid back and casual. Want to bring the outfit into the night? Add something with heels – it’s more versatile than you think.

To top this look, put your hair up in a ponytail, and also add a plain black choker and some hoops – they will look so good with with open shoulders, and will keep it very 90s.

Overall, this is an outfit that will transform your style.

How to create the perfect holiday feed on Instagram

Do you ever scroll through Instagram, come across a holiday picture, click on their profile and find that their holiday feed is aesthetically perfect? Well, me too. A holiday feed is made up of a variety of pictures, which could include scenery, food and outfits; they are also all carefully uploaded to complement each other on your profile page. The great thing about a good feed is that not only does it show off your holiday to the extreme, but it can make you look more exciting.

 

 

So, have you got some holiday pictures that haven’t made it to the gram? Or going somewhere soon and want to showcase it perfectly? Well, scroll below to see my top tips to getting that perfect feed.

 

  1. Variety of pictures.

Avoid uploading loads of pictures of yourself consecutively. As I said before, a holiday feed contains all types of pictures, such as from the food you have eaten, to the views you encounter. You can still include pictures of yourself, whether outfit pictures or selfies, just make sure your feed shows variety – perhaps by posting a food picture followed by a picture of a beach.

 

2. Colours

It’s important to have photos with the same colours scheme. You will find it easier to compliment the photos – e.g. a blue sky will go great with blue waves. You can see the effect below.

 

 

  1. Don’t be afraid to use the filters.

The Instagram filters can help your photos attain the same colour. I tend to use the newer filters, as they don’t affect the quality of the photo so much – my favourites are Aden and Slumber. I also reduce their impact; normally I use between 25%-50% of the filter.

 

4. Editing.

As well as the filters, you have a variety of edit options, such as adjusting the brightness, or increasing the warmth of the photo. Don’t neglect these options as they can bring your photos even more to life, especially when you’re taking them on your phone. They can intensify skies or buildings and bring more contrast to your photos in general.

 

  1. If it doesn’t fit, delete it.

You don’t have to keep a photo once you have uploaded it. If it doesn’t fit straight away, delete it. If it doesn’t fit later on with your newer pictures, archive it. It’s a trial and error process. You can also save it as a draft first to see what it will look like as a small square. Daria from justobreathe.com recommended the app Planoly to me, which allows you to see what a photo would look like on your feed without uploading it, which is really useful too.

 

Hope this helps!

Shoes: Pretty Little Thing £30

 

This outfit consists of only black and white; firstly, this is because each piece can be easily incorporated into other outfits and secondly, this outfit can be worn again but transformed into something new by just adding a jacket or accessories.

Despite the outfit maintaining a simple shirt and trouser look, the details are what make it different. The white shirt has frill detailing, creating a smart and feminine look. I personally like how the frills are on the sleeves, almost as if the shirt is trying to mix Western with Victorian.

With the trousers, there’s so much going on: the cropped length, the wide legs and the white stitching near the borders. However, although sounding like a strange mix, they all really work well together. When the white shirt is tucked in, it will accompany the white stitching nicely, as well as leaving the D ring belt on main display. Now, although you could wear the shirt untucked, I prefer it tucked in as it looks neater and the shape it creates from the waist downwards is very appealing.

To finish the look, I chose a wide heel so it will be easier to walk in as well as eye-catching. I always find that with wide trousers they look best with heels; you will have a better posture so the trousers will flow more nicely. Also, if you’re conscious about wearing cropped trousers, a high top heel works well in minimizing the gap in between.

How To Style Thin Necklaces

Two words: Layer Up.

Layering thin necklaces with others simply makes them stand out more than they ever could by themselves.

An example can be seen below where I pair my initial necklace with another thin, but slightly longer, pendent necklace; I also add a long, rope necklace and gold choker to top the look. You can see how each one compliments each other and how a thin necklace has become part of a statement piece.

 

Make sure all your necklaces have a significant difference in length to avoid them from looking messy (try to keep it as neat as possible). Also, make sure all your necklaces are the same colour – never clash gold with silver.

Just remember that once you give it a go, you’ll never be able to wear a thin necklace by itself again.

 

*All necklaces were from Accessorize, including the initial necklace and long, rope necklace from the Z For Accessorize range.*

Jeans: Bershka £25.99

Say hello to your new best friend: Mom jeans. An autumn favourite and a very versatile addition to your wardrobe.

I’ve chosen this outfit for you as high waist bottoms, especially mom jeans, go very well with crop tops; they provide comfort whilst showing off your figure (yes, even if they are loosely fitted). Mom jeans hug on your waist, meaning they emphasise an hourglass figure better than skinny jeans would, and as this crop top is tightly fitted, your waist will appear even smaller.

The high neck top will keep you warm too whilst adding a little oomph for something basic, and as it is black and plain it can be easily incorporated into many outfits in the future.

The versatility doesn’t stop there, as this outfit was made to be worn 24/7. Either dress the outfit down with white trainers, or dress it up with court heels. Uni in the day and drinks in the evening? Sorted.

Furthermore, adding to the outfit is easy too; if it’s cold, throw on a jacket such as a longline boyfriend coat or a plain bomber. To add a statement, add a wide, black belt with a showpiece buckle.

This style will take you out of your comfort of skinny jeans, but when you feel how comfy these jeans are, and see how 90s you look, you will fall in love.

Happy E-Style!
