Neutralising the Skort

                                   Dress worn as top (*) -Rihanna at River Island, Skort-Zara,
                                                      Necklace-Ever Ours & Shoes- Topshop.

001)           Apart from vibrant prints and colours , this season is all about restyling the summer favourite ‘laid back look’ with textures and accessories.  Achieving this effortlessly looking ensemble can easily be done through playing with classic tailored pieces such as loose fitting vests, chinos and shorts.

002)        For this outfit I paired up my black skort with my RiRi floral dress, as I liked how the dress gave a suttle splash of colour to the look. Also I liked how the skort was the perfect addition for this minimal look , as the two asymmetric cuts coordinated with one another and created a quirky tailored inspired outfit.

003)         Accessory wise I layered up with boho inspired jewellery, as the gold cross and geometric pendants complimented the beige and brown tones in my dress. Shoes wise following up on the more tailored inspired trends,  I wore my neutral toned sandal heels as the neutral shade of the shoes matched the colours of my dress and gave an overall elegant touch to my look.

African Roots

                                                Dress-ASOS(*), Necklace-Ever Ours, Clutch-Dixi
                                                                      & Loafers-Urban Outfitters.

001)       In my previous blog posts that I had written last month , I introduced you guys to different cultural inspired garments such as ethnic and aztec printed clothing. However this time I thought I would show you guys another flamboyant print , which is perfect to wear during the summer season and can be easily styled for any occasion simply by changing the choices of accessories e.g. shoes, bags, waist belts and jewellery.

002)      ASOS Africa’s colourfully coated collection is filled with unusual monochrome, and zingy chartreuse green designs on sleeveless shirts, midi dresses, tailored trousers and stand out jumpsuits.  This African inspired range is perfect for you if you want to find that statement-making piece for the summer season, which has the whole package when it comes to colour and pattern choices. The best part of the collection is that ASOS has collaborated with SOKO Kenya , which allows communities to establish sustainable business through local craftsmanship .

003)     For this outifit, I wore my sheer African printed inspired midi dress with my geometric inspired necklace and studded clutch bag as I like how the edgy style of the accessories blended into the yellow and black tones of my look and made my outfit become more versatile for a day to night occasion.  Shoes wise I wore my multi coloured strappy loafers , as I liked how the pink and blue tones complimented the chartreuse green  design of my dress and my bold pink lipstick.
