What if there was a possibility to have a personal shopper at hand? One that we could just activate and communicate right from our finger tips, which is programmed to listen to our fashion dilemmas and clothing queries.

 Following that it will allow you to select the brands of your choice and what budget you're looking for.

Outfits suggested by Mallzee.

All - Forever 21.

        Following the American street style inspiration , Mallzee suggested some alternative items which would help create a rock chic inspired outfit.  This particular outfit is ideal if the Boho trend caught your attention over the summer period , as the return of the floral kimono and ripped acid wash jeans gives the charcol tones within the outfit a feminine grunge twist. The app then suggested layering the outfit with a tope pastel grey over sized cardigan ,  a black fedora hat and a mixture of geometric silver jewellery, as this will give the cut out denim outfit a bohemian laid back touch.

All - Forever 21.

            The next outfit is inspired by the preppy trend  which has sprouted back into this  A/W season with a refreshing new look. The college girl inspired garments are filled with cool and neutral tone floral prints, which aim to revitalize your wardrobe during the colder months. Mallzee suggested this cut out waist floral shirt dress and chunky over sized black cardigan , as the boho and tailored pieces gave a feminine twist to the masculine choice of accessories such as the biker boots and bowler hat. Whilst the monochrome striped scarf adds a chic touch to the juxtaposed look.

Hat, T-shirt & Scarf - Urban Outfitters & Bag-Forever 21.


             This casual autumnal look is ideal for you if you're looking for an outfit, which prepares you for those unexpected chilly afternoons and evenings.  A quirky themed t-shirt gives an essence of your personality to an outfit and shows you're not affraid to embrace your inner geek chick.  Accessory wise the outfit is layered with essential A/W knitwear such a bright blue beanie and tartan scarf,  vibrant hat gives a pop of colour whilst the mossy monochrome tartan scarf gives an extra print to the outfit.  As this is an on the go look , the leather and leopard print shoulder bag , gives a rock twist to the causal comic con inspired outfit as the neutral tones from bag colour coordinated with the warm tones in the galactic t-shirt. 

Dress- ASOS & Scarf- Forever 21.

            Finally this last look is ideal if you're looking a fun and flirty outfit for a date night. This monochrome and daisy print smock dress is filled with a mixture of trends such as floral , monochrome and gingham . The melange of prints makes this dress in particular very versatile and a great start out piece if you're looking for dresses to help rejuvenate your wardrobe.
             Layering up the outfit is straight forward as you simply follow the colour coordination given in the dress , for this particular outfit I would suggest going for a black and white scarf as it would add a winter chic touch to the daisy dress. For a slightly chilly evening , wear a leather jacket or thick blazer as it will add an edgy touch to the floral outfit. Accessory keep it minimal and wear  a waist belt,  as it would help shape the dress to your body shape as it will define your waist. Finish  of the outfit by wearing the leather and leather bag , which Mallzee suggested in my day time 'laid back' themed outfit as the leopard print colour coordinates with the yellow shade in the daisy design and gives a wild twist to the floral look.
