Never Say Never: This is an edgy, grunge outfit that takes inspiration from the 90’s. The short, plaid, pleated skirt which looks like a school-girl type skirt is one of my favourites. I am loving plaid/tartan at the moment and this one is one of my favourites with the bold and bright colours. To match in with the black on the skirt and to keep the rest of the outfit fairly plain I kept everything else in black. The shirt and jumper blend in together and with the black tights create a great plain background to showcase the skirt. The boots add to the edgy and tough feel with their buckles and studs and the dark lipstick ties everything together. This is a more casual outfit for every day wear but is still a statement and quite smart.

I’ll Tell You My Sins: This is a great, girly, casual outfit. The tucked-in, slightly-oversized jumper is white with ribbing detail and tiny coloured flecks. The white ties in with the petals on the daisies which are the pattern on the skirt. This is a great spring-time, casual outfit but could easily be worn out for lunch or in slightly smarter situations due to the wide-brim hat and the heeled boots; both of which make this a more interesting and edgy look. A white jumper and floral patterns on darker fabrics are a great way to start breaking out of the darker colours we often wear in winter without going too far too fast.

What It Is, What It Isn’t: Again, another look using florals on a dark fabric making the perfect transition between winter and spring fashion. I have taken a dress which is quite girly and smart and added a blazer to keep up the smart and crisp theme. I then added some more casual shoes which have rose gold buckles and a thick, chunky heel so add a little height without being uncomfortable. This look is really versatile and could be seen as either smart or casual. It could be dressed down by switching out the blazer for an oversized cardigan or dressed up by switching the shoes out for some chic heels or dainty ankle boots with a low heel.

When The Days Are Cold: This bright outfit is so perfect for the start of spring. I love bright colours for spring and lime green is probably my favourite of all. The aztec print of the crop top adds so much interest to this look and ties all the other items together perfectly. This blazer is complete perfection in colour and is such a statement piece, yet laid back and comfy. This look is great for smarter or more casual wear and could easily be dressed up with some statement rings or bracelets, or could be dressed down by switching the shoes out for some flats.

The Things That We Could Be: This is again a perfect spring look. With pastels and florals it is the perfect girly outfit. I am obsessing over blazers as they add a smart edge to any look and this mint-coloured one is perfect for spring. While it’s still not too warm this outfit is easily worn with tights and the blazer keeps the cold edge off, but as it gets warmer the tights can be ditched and the blazer switched for some sunglasses! Here I’ve kept the look a little smarter and more formal with some t-bar heels but you could dress it down a little and swap heels for plain black flats.

I walk The Streets In The Rain: The final look for this post is much more edgy than the other two. The focal piece of this outfit is a plaid/tartan skirt in a cream colour with red and black patterning. This piece is so versatile and could be dressed to an edgy look (like I’ve done here), or to a girly look. As I didn’t want to take away from the skirt I kept everything else pretty plain and black. The only other embellishments are the studs on the boots which toughen the look up, and the loose-knitting on the jumper which show the skirt and some skin through a little. Here I am wearing a black vest underneath too. This is a more casual outfit but could be dressed up with some chunky black heels, red lipstick and some statement jewellery.

Only Time Can Tell: This is a casual look with jeans and a jumper but a smarter edge is added by the heels, hat and shirt. I love the edge that this hat brings to any look and I also love monochrome looks; and this one is one of my recent favourites. I added a girly edge with frilly socks to soften the less feminine look that the rest of the outfit gives. I would wear this look to a lunch with friends or for day-to-day activities that didn’t require a lot of walking (although these heels are actually not too bad to walk in!).

All I Need: This is a more girly look than the previous one, but again featuring my favourite hat. This is such a versatile outfit as it can be worn in more casual settings; due to the lower shoes, or slightly more formal settings; due to the smart, statement skirt. The focal point, obviously, is the skirt. It is a take on the pencil skirt and is a wrap-around skirt with a tie up fastening at the back. The top is a velvet material with a sheer floral pattern on it (which can’t be seen all that clearly here), further adding to the feminine edge of this look. I love to wear black, particularly in the winter, but it can get a little repetitive so adding a bold and coloured skirt felt like a great way to slightly break that pattern. The shoes are also really comfy for walking in all day long but add a little height.

Rarely Could And Rarely Would: This is another great versatile outfit that could be worn in casual or smarter settings. The blouse and blazer definitely say smart, but the skater style of the skirt and the little shoe-boots are more casual. The mixture of textures in this look make it really interesting as well as the pop of bright colour that the blouse brings. The blouse is a chiffon type material, the skirt is faux leather and the shoe-boots are a suede material. These shoes are actually really grippy and they also have a wedge heel so add height without being uncomfortable.

I Been Losing Sleep: I love the bright colour of this top and I think it’s great to add a little colour in the winter months. I wear a lot of black in winter so it’s always good when I find something bright to lift the mood. This blouse is quite casual, yet smart and classy because of the material. It’s a really versatile top that can be worn with skirts, jeans, or other things and will be great for going through to spring and even summer too. This is more of a casual look for everyday wear but it is also smart enough to wear to casual events like lunch with friends etc. The blazer adds some warmth and a smart hint, while the hat and shoes add more of a grunge edge.

Look At What You’ve Done: This jumper is one of my current favourites as it is super warm but goes with everything! It’s just the right length and I love the colour too. This is a smart/casual look as the jumper and jeans are more casual, yet the shirt and heels dress the look up a little more. The jumper is so versatile and can be dressed up or down. I love these heels so much and they are actually really comfy.

When You Need Me There: All-black looks are definitely my go-to outfits; all year round but more so in the winter. I love this look for going out as it isn’t too dressed up – due to the jeans. I really love these shoes because they look quite dressed up and they have a small heel but they are super comfy. A hat can add an edge and some interest to any look; finishing it off perfectly -this one is my absolute favourite at the moment! The blazer, again adds a bit of smartness to the look, making it a little more dressed up. This is a versatile outfit that can be worn for everyday or for a night out.

Girls On Film: I am loving hats this season and this one is definitely my favourite with the wide brim styling. This is definitely a monochrome look and it is super cosy, comfy and casual as it is just black jeans and a pale grey jumper. The hat dresses the look up and gives it some edge and the shoes add some height and some interest without being too high and uncomfortable. These shoes were definitely an amazing buy and they are seriously comfy. This is a great simple and casual look for everyday wear; I frequently wear this sort of outfit to uni.

Party Girls Don’t Get Hurt: Another simple and casual look with jeans and a jumper. This look has the same shoes as the previous one as they are currently my most worn shoes. They are actually great in the snow because they have quite a deep tread and amazing grip. I am loving jeans recently since I found some high-waisted ones in H&M that fit really well. To add interest to this look I chose a jumper with some interesting knitting and a bright colour, but also a shirt which has a cute polka dot pattern on it. Again, a great look for casual everyday wear.

Until Morning Light: This look is a little less casual due to the height of the heels on the shoes but is still relatively dressed down. The jeans are definitely more casual but black jeans always lend better to slightly smarter looks than other coloured jeans. The top has a great pattern in tropical colours, but the black also ties in nicely with the rest of the look. The socks add a bit of a cute and girly element but the black frills keep within the theme. These shoes are amazing and actually really comfortable considering they are over five inches in heel height. I added the hat to give a little more edge to the look too. Overall this is a less casual look than the other two and could be worn for casual drinks, or a lunch maybe. To add a smarter element I would add a black blazer or tailored jacket!

Time To Lay Claim To The Evidence: For when the days get colder everyone needs a jumper or two. This is one of my favourite jumpers as it is white with tiny flecks of colour and has a random ribbed pattern, both of these aspects add interest and make it more than just a regular plain jumper. When it isn’t wet I still like to wear my jelly shoes and socks. The socks mean it isn’t too cold for my feet when the temperature isn’t so great. This is a really casual, laid back look; perfect for lazy days.

Footprints Wash Away: I love to mix prints all year round and this oversized top goes really well with the tartan skirt. The top buttons all the way up and is baggy so counters the short skirt with a defined waist. Oversized tops with a high-waisted skirt are always a great option in my opinion as they add a casual element to the look completely effortlessly and they are also super comfy to wear. If it gets a little colder the socks could be switched out for a pair of black tights, however the socks add an extra girly and cute element to the look, as do the heeled jelly shoes, which are reminiscent of childhood years. This look is quite a casual one and great for everyday activities but with a black blazer and potentially accessories; such as a statement necklace, could be dressed up slightly for smart/casual events or occasions.

My Life Be Like: This is one of my everyday looks but is more of a smart look than a casual one. The shoes have a small wedge heel to add a little height and a slightly grown-up element but they are still easy to walk in and comfy for all-day wearing. The combination of the black tights and the black shoes also elongates the legs. The top is subtly patterned due to a lace over-lay which gives the look a feminine edge and links nicely to the skirt; which has an embossed pattern on it. I love the contrast of the monochrome black-and-white look against the bright pop of colour in the lime blazer. This colour is so bright and really cheers up the outfit for those colder months. If you wanted to go for a sleeker look then switch the lime blazer for a black one and/or switch the skirt for a black pencil skirt and it is a look perfect for meetings or smart events.

I’m Just The Shot Gun: These dungaree shorts are really cute and great for a casual day as they are super comfy. This is an outfit that I would wear in the spring/summer adapted for autumn/winter wear. It is a casual, everyday look; one that I would wear to uni with an oversized cardi or jacket. The hat gives a little edge and interest to the look and I like how the top adds a bright and bold element – which is often welcome in the colder and darker months.

Not The Way That I Do Love You: When the weather get’s a little cooler I still love to wear skirts but don’t always want to wear tights (or I can’t find a pair that isn’t covered in holes), so a great alternative is to wear thigh-high or knee-high socks. I am also in love with these boots for winter because they are so warm and so comfy. This faux-leather skirt is definitely a wardrobe staple for me and I think a black skirt is essential in every girls’ wardrobe. I love this top because it is cute and has really subtle rose patterning in the velvet. This is definitely a more casual look but could easily be dressed up with a blazer and some heels instead of the boots.

It’s In My DNA: This is a great smart/casual look and one that could be worn for everyday activities such as a shopping trip or university lectures, or could be worn for a daytime date. To dress it up a little a statement or chunky necklace could be added, potentially also a clutch and if it is colder then a smart jacket. For a casual day this is great with an oversized handbag or even backpack. The jumper keeps me nice and warm, as do the thicker leggings. I like these leggings because their texture makes them much more interesting.

Back At The Bar: This outfit is more girly and cute than I usually go for. I have recently been wearing a lot of black and this made a nice change for me. The neon colours of the top and the shoes really scream summer to me. The frilly socks paired with the jelly shoes definitely reminds me of growing up as a 90’s kid and add a girly feel, as well as a retro edge. The skirt continues the feminine theme with a floral pattern. The oranges and pinks of some of the flowers on the skirt are really picked out by the coral top. The cropped top also has a feminine vibe with the floral lace detail. This is a great outfit for everyday and could easily be smartened up for an evening with some bright heels and maybe a blazer if the weather is a little cooler.

Fundamentally You’re A Fundamentalist: This outfit was posted to my LookBook on the same day as my new YouTube channel was introduced. I love the pairing of thigh-high socks with a skirt as I think it elongates and slims the legs. This look has a much edgier and harder feel with the leather texture in the skirt and the heeled boots with cut-outs and buckles. The blazer adds a smarter touch whilst also keeping the edge too. The top is the only item here that has a feminine touch really. The top is subtle with the faded and darker colours but has a really pretty dusty rose print which also ties in nicely in colour with the rolled up sleeves of the blazer. This look is perfect for everyday wear or for a smart-casual event.

We Are The Fallen Angels: The main thing I love about this look is the school-girl vibe it gives off; with a pleated skirt, the tartan print and the frilly socks it definitely is reminiscent of school days for me. However I love the colour of the skirt and it is certainly a more grown up look than I would ever wear at school. The boots and top give a more casual and edgy feel to the look while the skirt smartens it up. It is a perfect combination and I also love the lace on the top paired with the frills on the socks to add a feminine and delicate touch. This is also a great everyday look for going on a day trip perhaps or to meet up with friends as the boots have a chunky heel they are comfy to wear all day long.

In This City That We Love: I love the contrast of the dark, heavy colour with the delicate lace of the sleeves and frills of the socks. This is real a perfect outfit for me because it has all the girly elements that I love, and is in black; which I also love. I wear a lot of black and I’m not really sure why but this outfit says why black is perfect for me. The top is plain black at the front with a lace back and lace sleeves. The skirt is just a plain, black skater skirt with a plain belt and gold buckle. The skater-style of the skirt also adds a girly element to the outfit. The heels and the socks are complete opposites because the heels are chunky, black and have studded heels, while the socks are white, dainty and have frills at the top. This look is great for everyday if the heels were switched up for some lower heels or flats but the look could be worn to a smart/casual event too, or even smartened up with a blazer.

The Nights Are Drawn Out Long: This look is definitely more casual. I love these shorts for two reasons: 1 – they’re high-waisted, which I think is really flattering, and 2 – they’re faux leather which gives a great texture and adds an edgy element to the outfit. The kitten vest adds a cute side to this otherwise hard and edgy look. This is great because the black background is in keeping with the rest of the outfit but the kitten printed on the front softens it a little. I decided to add a blazer instead of a leather jacket as an extra layer and rolled up the sleeves to add a casual touch. To finish the look off I finally added a trilby; for a little more edge, and some heeled, cut-out boots with buckles. These boots are the perfect height and I absolutely adore them.

Without a Sound: This look is more of a summer one with mainly black but a few pops of bright colour. I love the combination of high-waisted anything and a cropped top at the moment. This leather look skirt makes this outfit a little hard to start with and adds a little edge. I then added some thigh-high black socks as it was a little cooler. I think these socks are great for elongating the legs and slimming them down too. The top is one of my current favourites as I love the bright colours in contrast with the black. To tie in with the bright colours on the top and keep the look more casual I added these mint/turquoise jelly shoes. These are amazing and they remind me so much of my childhood so they add a great retro touch. This is more of a casual look but could be dressed up with heeled boots and maybe a blazer if it’s not so warm.
