It’s been a very rainy and cold March down here in Brighton which has meant that I’ve been layering up in hoodies and sweatshirts because Spring who?! There is nothing that makes me want to stay inside more than the miserable English weather, so March saw many hours on Netflix and trips to the Cinema. As well as that, this month, The Weeknd graced us with new music and no doubt I have had it on continuous repeat since…
Though it seems like Winter has lasted forever, Spring is starting to make an appearance with many warmer and drier days. This means that we can finally get rid of our heavy jackets and coats and start wearing lighter and colourful clothing. You don’t want to be that one person wearing all black in 30-degree heat… That used to be me but this year I’m making a conscious effort to wear little to no black in my outfits. So when the sun made even the tiniest of appearances, I got my Spring clothing out!
Ditch the black – wear lighter colours!
This outfit screams Spring and blossoming and warmth with the shades of blue and beige mixing well together to create a balanced combination. Blue has been my favourite colour to wear for a while now, whether it’s navy, royal, or denim blue, its versatility has seen me through many outfits. But I’ve always shied away from lighter colours due to the darker palette of my wardrobe. However, this light blue shirt is easily one of my top picks for this Season – it gives off beach vibes without actually being at the beach. Luckily for me, I live 20 minutes away from one!
This shade of blue is styled best with other lighter colours, like beige for example. Beige is definitely going to feature in a lot of my Spring outfits because it’s light and airy, and just so easy to style once you have a better understanding of which colours work well together. I love the sandy colour of these trousers as they can be paired with both lighter shades and darker, bolder colours too. It’s perfect for Summer! As much as I love wearing black trousers, I’d prefer to not sweat for the next few months.
They said you should wear what you like, so I’m wearing the beach…
This is actually one of the few outfits where I’m wearing little to no black! I’ve spent the past few months experimenting a lot more with colours and shades so I don’t have to rely on black all of the time. This outfit would’ve worked just as well with black trousers and black shoes. Maybe even the same pieces, and just in all black. It still works. But it looks even better when styled with colours that complement each other.
The oceanic blue of the shirt paired with the sandy beige colour of the trousers just reminds me of the beach and ice cream and sunny days! White shoes are an absolute staple in the Summer. Just anything white, to be honest: white tees, white shoes, white socks. The white shoes and tee finish off this Spring look pretty nicely. I literally resemble the beach, but that’s what you get when you live by the seaside!
Are you Spring/Summer ready?
I have so many oversized shirts and sneakers ready for Spring and Summer! It’s a nightmare being stuck with tightly fitted tops in the blistering heat. So keep it light and airy. With trousers, try to find light wash jeans and trousers that aren’t skinny fitting! Who am I kidding? I’m probably going to wear shorts all Summer.
Just remember: light and airy, stay away from dark colours, and invest in a pair of white sneakers!
What I’m Wearing:
While January felt like a whole calendar year long, February seems to have lasted a good two minutes! So what made it into my February favourites? February saw many outfits with colourful shirts in an attempt to add more colour to my wardrobe as the Spring/Summer season approaches. This month, I was also lucky enough to visit The Netherlands on a short trip to Amsterdam. As well as this, I have spent much of February binge-watching teen comedies on Netflix. I know, productive right? Continue reading “February Favourites 2018”
Double denim is possibly one of the most difficult to pull off as it relies on certain shades complementing each other. With the many shades of blue denim, it’s particularly hard to find the right denim wash of jackets and jeans. For the best part of the Autumn/Winter seasons, I’ve been loving my ASOS Man Denim Jacket in a Mid Blue Wash. And this month, I bought my first pair of blue denim jeans in a very long time – this particular pair is an ‘Acid Dark Blue’! Since then, I have been wanting to experiment with the two pieces and wearing them together in one outfit to try double denim for the first time. Continue reading “Double Denim: Mid Blue Wash”
Starting the year off right with a quick holiday to The Netherlands, a country I’ve seen only in photos and heard of in conversations. My brothers and I visited Amsterdam on a three day trip filled with Museums, Parks, and Bikes! It didn’t take long to fall in love with the architecture surrounding the canals across the city. However, I must say, I still don’t feel safe crossing the roads in Amsterdam with all the bikes coming from left, right, and centre! Continue reading “What I Wore In Amsterdam”
It’s been a while since I last did an Outfit of the Day post and it’s fair to say that my wardrobe has gone through many changes since then. Recently, I’ve been adding lots of variety in my outfits to really experiment with my style, especially with different cuts, colours, and silhouettes. On my Instagram, I’ve been posting daily outfit photos which has challenged me to really step out of my comfort zone and try new ways of wearing certain pieces. This outfit is a perfect example of this. Continue reading “OOTD: Patterned Trousers and Doc Martens”
This month has been a busy month for me in terms of University assignments and deadlines but it has also been a month full of bits and pieces that I’ve been loving in fashion, music, and film. Many took advantage of the January sales, but I stayed away and focused on getting rid of clothes before buying new ones. With music, I’ve been listening to my old favourites as well as some new artists I’ve been recommended! When it comes to TV and Film, I’m not much of a film junkie but I can probably out-binge most people – this month, I’ve been loving murder… So let’s talk about my January Favourites! Continue reading “January Favourites”
This is the first post of a series that I’m starting called “What I Would Wear It With”. In this series, I will pick a certain item or style of clothing and discuss how I would wear them. For example, I recently bought a pair of beige trousers for the first time and I want to discuss how I’d still them and why. Hopefully, this series will inspire you to come out of your comfort zone and experiment a lot more with your style. Continue reading “What I Would Wear It With: Beige Trousers”
This is quite a personal one for me but I feel like I’m ready to talk about it. As you all know, I attend gigs, concerts, and festivals quite frequently in various different venues and locations. Sometimes I even write about them on this blog, but as some of you may be aware, I haven’t written a music blogpost for… months. In fact, I don’t think I will again. Continue reading “Why I Sometimes Don’t Go To Gigs”
Happy new year to you! I hope you’ve had a great time celebrating the end of 2017 and the start of what could be a pretty big year in fashion, particularly in menswear. 2017 saw the rise and fall of many trends and brands and the same is expected in 2018. Last year, we saw the huge influx of puffer jackets, ugly dad sneakers, and man-bags. So what’s in my menswear fashion trend predictions in 2018?
