Being a Stylist, I feel that 'Style Challenges' set by brands shouldn't phase me. They do. It's not that I cant style them up on other people to look good. Give me any item at work in the studio and I will create a look that I am proud of. Ask me to incorporate it into my wardrobe, and if it's not a item that I find easy to wear - it can fill me with dread.
I've been asked to do a few 'Spring Style Challenges' -cue floral dresses, baroque leggings and pastel pleats - but I have turned them down - because I feel like Mrs Doubtfire when I try to push said items into my daily style.
However, Matalan asked me to style up some coloured jeans - after selecting the least pastel of the selection - I settled on these cobalt blue ones. The material was stretchy enough that I could wear them for styling at work and they complimented an oversized tent-like top perfectly. I rolled them up to the top of my Dr.Martens ( taking inspiration from the 80's ) and I had the perfect laid back , easy to wear, undone look for a day on a photoshoot. It may not be Vogue, but it's me.
This weekend I am going to be wandering around Manchester's Northern Quarter - which I always seem to descend upon when there is an ounce of sunshine. Shopping for Summer must be done - Leeds Festival mainly, plus a Summer holiday. So if you know of any small boutique shops stocking cool items in the NQ let me know - or alternatively if you have any advice as to what I should buy for Leeds ( I don't even own a tent ), please help me below !
