My Fashion Mecca


I can’t walk past H&M recently without going inside, they have some lovely, simple summer bits which I am craving to buy! There is currently a mid-season sale on too, which adds fuel to the fire. I have all my holiday shopping to do soon and H&M is my first target (then probably Topshop much to the detriment of my bank card).

Anyway, here are a few of my favourite bits from online H&M (Don’t you find what they have in stores is always different to what is online?! CRAZY.)

I love this pink dress, one of my friends owns it and I’m very jealous I didn’t get in there first. It is so simple to wear, throw on a necklace and some pumps and you’re sorted. The flower detail makes the dress so minimal effort is involved when glamming it up! It’s also only £15 which upsets me further that is does not belong to me!!

This bright, bold red is very in right now, can be dressed up as easily as the first dress so very suitable for nights out, or just casually worn during the day. Block colours are a huge favourite this season, and H&M have got it spot on with this dress.

This floral number is perfect for summer, pair it with a denim jacket or a cardigan. You could add a waistbelt or just a neckalce. Simple! It’s also a very affordable price of just £7.99

I’ve decided, as I can’t have the dress in the first picture, I’m going to have to have this bolero, which would go very well with the floral dress above. Sneaky…

Yum.

 

I’ve fancied a black playsuit for a while now, and the slouch detail to this one is gorgeous and it’s an affordable price of £19.99

This big clutch bag is a season must-have. That’s all. Oh no wait, it’s also only £7.99

That’s it for my favourite finds. Time to shop,

 

Go Go Go!

Please let me know if you’ve found any brilliant bargains or perfect summer items (I don’t want to be left out). What do you think of the items on my wish list?!

Street Style


Chinos, chinos, chinos! Is usually the chants heard along London Road in Sheffield at ridiculous O’clock in the morning. This time however, I am not referring to the students favourite kebab shop.

I’ve decided to take to the streets in pursuit of fashionable male students. It’s a lot harder than it sounds with most boys wandering around in hooded jumpers and tracksuit bottoms.

However more and more men are yielding to the increasingly popular, easy to wear, chino trend. With most of them going for the casual stone washed colour, I am starting to prefer the darker hues such as navy, or khaki, or if you’re feeling brave enough then the red/ rust colour works too.

Whether they’re rolled up, cropped or full-length, they are easy fashion and perfect for summer. Not too hot, not over the top, pair it with a plain T-shirt and plimsolls and you’ve nailed it effortlessly.

So I took to the student-filled streets of Sheffield to find a few guys who were already out and about in the latest fashion.

I’m not too keen on the drop crotch trend and think chinos are much better suited to a pair of plimsolls or casual shoes or even smart shoes rather than tucked into a pair of boots. Low crotch and boots do nothing but make your legs look really short.

If you want to look smart then buy the smarter style chinos, but the casual, slightly more baggy style that’s filling our stores this season, give off a very strong ‘less is more’ message. Even the manikins are keeping it simple.

Isn’t that the perfect thing about summer? Hassle free, minimal outfits. No need to layer up to keep warm, just chuck on the simple stuff and away you go. Sorted.
