2017 – A Year In Clothing

2017 has been and gone and a new year is suddenly upon us. Last year has been full of many ups and downs for me. I started my Masters degree at Northumbria, I have met people who will change my life forever and I have left some people behind. 2017 was the year where I really tried to figure myself out, I focused on my weight loss, education and loving myself.

I have come out of 2017 a much more positive person and let’s hope 2018 brings amazing things.

The one thing that has changed over the last couple of years is my style. I have always been very much into my fashion from a young age, I always wanted to look different and quirky. I have said goodbye to vintage and preppy clothing and my style has really come in on its own. I feel happy and confident.

Here is a quick look at some of my favourite looks over 2017.

Spring 2018 – My Picks

The remainder of snow still lies on the ground and the January blues are still in full force. But what better way to get you excited for the smell of freshly cut grass, cute baby lambs, and Daffodils than hitting the high-street shops to check the Spring 2018 fashion?

It may not be time to vacuum pack those cosy knits, but Spring 2018 is just around the corner and it might be the most stylish one yet.

Say goodbye to over-done florals of Springs past, 2018 is all about stripes, bold colours, and sporty chic.

Here are some of my top High-Street Spring 2018 must have styles:

  1. TOPSHOP – Yellow Striped Long Sleeve Crew

This year’s Spring is all about bold colours with a laid-back feel. This look could be dressed down with a pair of skinny jeans. Or dress it up with an A-line denim skirt, sock boots, and a stylish beret.

It is no wonder this piece has almost sold out online at Topshop. Get yours here for only £18.

2. ASOS – Double O Waist Belt 

If you have not seen the Gucci ‘Double G’ belt plastered all over your Instagram, then you must live under a rock. Do not want to pay £270 for a belt? Neither do I. ASOS do a belt very similar, you can get the Gucci look without the insane price tag. You can get an even a cheaper ‘Double O’ belt at Primark for just £4!

Team with jeans and a T-shirt tucked in for a casual look or team with a vibrant dress for a dressier feel. Get yours for only £10 Here.

3. River Island – Black & White Polka Dot Playsuit

Spring 2018 is not just about the bolds because black and white never go out of fashion. Another pattern that has been making quite an appearance on the high street this Spring is the polka dot.

Get this in-style Playsuit here for £50

4. New Look – Red Patent Boots

I have been obsessed with red boots for a while and I am happy to see this style is going strong in the Spring.

Bold statement boots can make an outfit go from BLEH to YAY in seconds. It is time to say goodbye to the metallic boot because everyone is loving the bold boot.

Get these colourful beauties here for £29.99

5.  ASOS – Statement Double Drop Tortoiseshell Earrings 

I have been a fan of simple, dainty and understated jewelry for a long time. I have been experimenting with statement earrings as I have a lot of them in the high-street shops lately.  Big and bold earrings can really make an outfit pop, from Tortoiseshell to Tassel earrings the statement earring is in, but who knows, will it be here to stay?

Get your statement earrings here for £8

6. TOPSHOP – Tee & Cake Heart Sketch Face T-Shirt 

Remember the Gucci look-a-like ‘Merci’ T-Shirt by Topshop everyone had last Summer? This T-Shirt is this seasons new must have Instagram top by Topshop. This must have T-Shirt gives all the vibes of popular designer Commes Des Garcons with a bargain price.

Wear this with some colourful athletic style trousers or try tucked in jeans with a bold jacket as a head turner.

You can buy this must have Spring 2018 Tee here for £18


 

So, that is my Spring 2018 favourite list. Now I need to get my next student loan installment so I can get spending.

Thank you for reading and happy shopping.
