                                                              Shoes-H&M & Necklace-Ebay.

001)     The blazer and short combo is a brand new tailored two piece to try out this summer season, as it's figure flattering style can allow you to create a fun sophisticated look, which shows of your personality and your best features. Traditionally this ensemble is normally the same colour and print. However celebrities like Mollie King from the Saturdays have reworked this cropped suit and made it become more versatile by mixing it with different patterns, textures and colours.  

002)           For this outfit I wore my blue ethnic print jacket over my cami, as the black top matched the black outlines in the design of my jacket and made the piece stand out. Bottoms wise I wore my black silk bandana print shorts, as the boho inspired pattern matched the grey and black tones of my jacket. Accessory wise I wore my spiked choker necklace, as the silver shade colour coordinated with the grey tones of my outfit, whilst giving an edgy touch to my boho tailored look. Shoes wise I wore my 80's inspired blue court heels, as it gave a pop of colour to my look and matched the tailored theme of my outfit.

Mosaic Tiles

                        Playsuit-Motelrocks(*),Necklace-New Look
                                                                               & Shoes-Zara.
001)     Summer overalls such as jumpsuits,dungarees and playsuits are another style of clothing to try out this season if you're wanting to try out something, which is slightly more masculine. The cut of these overalls have in fact a feminine twist, as they're filled with unusual prints and bold choices of colour, which are based on a range of summer trends such as boho , tailored and urban. This one piece may look plain on its own but it can be easily mixed and matched with accessories to create an even quirkier look, which suits your body shape and personality. 

002)     For this outfit I wore my mosaic tile print playsuit without a waist belt, as I wanted to work with the loose fit of the petite jumpsuit. However if you're wanting to define your curves more in a piece like this I would recommend wearing a waist belt, which matches one of the colours in the item you're wearing. Accessory wise I wore my bright coral pink triangle choker necklace, as I liked how the geometric style of the necklace matched the ethic inspired print of my dress and gave a pop of colour to my look. Shoes wise I decided to wear my flatform wedges, as the coral shade matched the shade of my necklace and gave a warm twist to cool toned outfit.

001)           Long flowing frocks have graciously become the most essential dress to wear during the summer season. The 'Maxi' is a versatile piece to invest in if you're wanting to find an outfit, which can be easily stand out from the crowd by layering it with accessories or more colour of your choice. Celebrities like Selena Gomez has recently added this look to their wardrobe, as she wore a gypsy show stopper style gown in her 'Come and get it music video'.

002)     For this outfit I wore my feather print maxi dress with my cross waist belt , as I liked how grunge style of the belt not only gave an edgy touch to my look but complimented the neutral tones in my bohemian dress . Shoes wise I wore my tanned tone loafers, as the shoes blended into the brown tones of my dress and matched the triangular cut out design of the frock. Jewellery wise you can either wear silver or gold tone jewellery. However for this particular style of clothing,  I would recommend wearing a pendant, which has an accent of colour , as it will go with the boho theme of the outfit and add a pop of colour to the look.
