I recently took part in a style challenge for Very.co.uk which was going to appear in their monthly magazine. I was asked to style up an outfit using one of the key SS14 trends, I was given embellishment and to style it for day. I’m pretty partial to the odd sequin or glitter especially during the day so was excited to put something together!
I think the key thing to work embellishment for day is not to go too overboard, so I started off by choosing a pair of boyfriend jeans with ankle embellishments, the pearls and gemstones give the denims a little something extra without going OTT. I paired the boyfriend jeans with a white shirt which if you look closely actually has some lace embellishment on it. This is such a great shirt for wearing with anything and is great for wearing to work, with trousers or jeans. The jewel and gold chain necklace caught my eye straight away and was a great addition to add to the shirt, I love how it’s totally bling without being embarrassingly gangster.
With a pair of boyfriend jeans you need a bit of a heel but sometimes heels for day doesn’t quite cut it so I experimented with some studded flats and think I pulled it off! Lastly I went for a bright blazer to add a pop of colour, I love this pink Tommy Hilfiger one, it feels great on and the colour is just so summery.
