6 Style Staples for SS19

It’s felt like a long time coming, but finally – SPRING HAS SPRUNG (kind of, anyway – the odd chilly morning is still ruining my vibe but I think if we ignore them they’ll go away). Last year I put together my SS18 style staples in May, but this year I’m even more ahead of the game and have been scouting out my favourite bits for the last few weeks. Here are the six trends and pieces I’ll be embracing for 2019… View Full Post

6 Style Staples You Need This Summer

And so, it’s happened: spring has finally rocked up, like a hungover teenager dragging themselves out of bed just in time for Christmas dinner, sheepishly dishing out the roast potatoes while trying to act like they’re not about to barf. And well, isn’t it about bloody time.

After the longest winter EVER, we’ve finally been blessed with a couple of nice weeks. This has led to me panic ordering a whole new wardrobe, which in turn has led to me identifying a few key style staples I think we all need to pick up this summer. With minimal dilly-dallying, onto my list…

1. Anything with polka dots

Two things I always swore I would never change my mind on: polka dots and ITV presenter Stephen Mulhern. And look at me now, rocking polka dots left right and centre and tuning into Britain’s Got More Talent specifically to lol at Mulhern. Leopards truly can change their spots, dear readers.

Monthly Must-Haves #13 | The PLT Edit

PLT WIshlist
Hey guys and gurrrls! It’s been a while since I did a Monthly Must-Haves post, and I was wondering why this was. Have I cut down on my online shopping? Er no. Have I suddenly become rich and just buy everything I want straight away, eliminating the need to compile wishlists? Also no. Oh yes, that’s it: IT’S BEEN WINTER FOR APPROXIMATELY 73 YEARS.

What’s New In Primark | June 2017

Primark June

Yep it’s that time again – I’ve scoured the Primark New Arrivals section so you don’t have to. It’s good to see a lot of new summer stuff still coming in, because I for one am nowhere near done building my summer ‘drobe yet. I’m not off on holiday until September, so I’m still in the midst of my hunt for swimwear, beach cover ups and evening outfits (all a size smaller, as I’m obviously going to have lost a stone by then too, natch). I ignored the worrying selection of wooly hats that are appearing in stores this month – leave it out Primark – and picked my favourite pieces that you should be able to find in your local store.  View Full Post

Spring 2017 Fashion Faves

Spring Fashion Collage 2

It might not have seemed like it yesterday when I practically had to wade my way into work (RIP open-toed shoes), but SPRING HAS SPRUNG. Jack Wills recently created a guide around How to Style A Trench Coat and it got me thinking about Spring fashion, and the pieces I’m personally wearing a lot this season. As the ultimate transitional piece, the trench coat is obv one of those iconic Spring staples – and I think it’s important to have a couple of these in your wardrobe each season. But just as important are the fun, on-trend items that you might only wear for a couple of months but help update your outfits (and give us something to hopefully look back at cringe at when we’re older). I think I’ve got a healthy mix of both in my wardrobe at the moment, and here are some of my absolute faves… View Full Post
