Get The Look For Less!

Today I am looking at how to get a fabulous outfit for Spring 2016 for under £100!

Taking inspiration from Danish brand, Designers Remix from Charlotte Eskildsen, off the shoulder looks are going to be a key trend for Spring 2016, providing a feminine, laid back look to any outfit. Charlotte uses beautiful, plain designs with gorgeous ruffles and frills to add a subtle extra to the outfit.  The off the shoulder leather dress from the ready to wear collection shown below is an excellent example of this perfect combination.

Using this inspiration of the off the shoulder look I focused the outfit around a cute berry coloured dress from Boohoo.com. I love plain, simple dresses from Boohoo as they’re so versatile and so easy to accessorise for different occasions. They are always made of quality fabric and seem to last for ages. This dress was an absolute bargain at £15.

As this outfit is for Spring 2016 I thought I would pop a black hat at £13.99 from ASOS with this outfit to add some chic and to shade my eyes from the sun which is still quite low at this time of the year. Some cute ankle boots only £39.99 from New Look give a great look for Spring walks in the country, or strolling round Spitalfields market on the weekend.

To add a bit of glitz and glam to the outfit I included some gorgeous earrings only £5.99 from New Look and a studded bag, £22.99, enabling this outfit to go from daytime to evening, for a date to the cinema or dinner with friends.

#LoveMe Challenge – Day 20

Prompts

Something you love to wear

I love to experiment with different styles and colours. I absolutely love patterns whether that be a simple floral pattern or a unique printed pattern. I love to dress up in different items and definitely have a bit of a shopping addiction with the amount of clothes I own in my wardrobe!!!

My favourite international clothing brand has to be Black Milk clothing. Based in Australia, they offer an amazing range of unique printed items. Over the years I have collected Disney princess leggings, snowflake leggings, a Christmas ribbon printed dress, a pumpkin printed dress and a spiderweb skirt. I absolutely love how each item is handmade and is made with such care. I always feel like every item I receive from them is of the highest quality.

My favourite type of clothing has to be the A-line skirt which I often wear with bardot tops for a cute, girly outfit. I often wear a black striped skirt with a black bardot top which has a particularly Parisian feel!
