November Favourites | Zara & Topshop

Another month has come and gone and Christmas is soon approaching *jumps up and down!!!*, so I'm planning on being unusually well behaved and saving my money for Christmas gifts. However, this didn't stop me from leaving a hole in my pocket this November after a little internet shopping! 

I thought I'd share a few of my favourite buys this month, mainly consisting of simplistic pieces in either black, white or grey (unsurprisingly!). This monochrome colour-palette has a clean cut look that is essentially timeless. Adding different textures and layering outfits adds detail and depth to a fairly colourless attire, leaving you with a carefree and uncomplicated look. 

All of the items listed are from Zara - my all-time favourite - or Topshop, and have the cold weather in mind!

Oversize Buys

One of my favourite trends right now has unquestionably got to be the oversized and anti-fit look. With a manly, tom-boy essence, a chunky knit jumper or streamlined boyfriend coat can add the perfect 'not even trying' to your outfit. Keeping things simplistic and effortless is something the Olsen twins (featured above) are predominantly known for, making them one of my ultimate style icons. Pairing unfitted staple-pieces alongside fitted accents contrasts perfectly, adding a sense of feminism to a male-dominated outfit. A mixture of smart and casual conveys fashion confidence without trying too hard, giving a flawless contemporary look - ideal for AW14.

Well, here it is - my first blog.

Although it's undoubtedly been a long time coming, I've finally plucked up the courage to express my creativity within my own little space. Whether it be on the topic of fashion and style, music, travel or culture, why not share it? I can't deny the fact that I've been putting this off for quite some time, but I'm now ready to give it my best shot! If I'm able to inspire one person with any of my future posts, I'll be satisfied.
