With free next day UK delivery and 10% student discount it’s always tempting to buy something from MissGuided, and so when I saw this mini dogtooth print American Apparel style crop roll neck I couldn’t resist! Although crop tops aren’t the most practical pieces for winter for some people, I still find them very wearable with high waisted bottoms and more layers, and the monochrome print is perfect to pair with rich, autumnal colours and textures. Recently I’ve become obsessed with jeans in all shapes and sizes (well, almost), and my latest go-to pair are these vintage ‘boyfriend’ style jeans which I got from Retrograde Vintage.
I recently bought this gorgeous ‘Vintage Sequin Bodice dress’ by Dress Up Topshop online for £15 (RRP £95!), and haven’t yet had a chance to wear it anywhere fancy. However, I absolutely love it and so have been experimenting with ways to dress it down a little. Here I’m wearing it over a sheer black button-up shirt and black leather biker jacket (Topshop), with a Primark Alexander McQueen style skull print scarf tied around the waist and black creepers (Underground) with lace trim socks (Topshop) on my feet. What do you think?
It also looks great dressed down with an oversized denim jacket (vintage Burberry), straw hat and lilac creepers (Underground) for a more summery feel! I’ll definitely be wearing this outfit when the weather brightens up again.
Layering, jumpers thick tights and sheepskin lined boots are key for keeping warm in the winter. This sequined jumper from a few years ago is a perfect Christmas alternative for those who can’t quite bring themselves to don the traditional ‘ugly’ festive sweater. This specific Topshop jumper isn’t available to buy any more, but they stock some great alternatives like this.
I paired the jumper with a thick burgundy skirt from Ark, button-up denim shirt which you can buy from any high street, vintage or charity shop, and Topshop’s Marcy Lace-up Fur Boots which I would definitely recommend.
