Navy and Red

Now that Christmas is over and we’re in a New Year I’m already looking ahead to next season.  SS16 stock is starting to filter into our faves stores and the latest trends are beginning to emerge.  One of my all time favourite trends, regardless of season, has always been stripes.  Stripes are such a wearable trend and can translate to any outfit.

I found this incredibly chic striped shirt a couple of weeks ago and this fuelled the start of my new season wardrobe!  My new Saint Laurent tote bag was the perfect accessory for this look and my doubts of adding a red handbag to my collection were swiftly abandoned.  There’s just something so appealing about a navy and red outfit, the nautical vibes seem to pull me in like a tractor beam.  I have only two navy coloured jackets (shock horror! Note to self: must buy more) so this double breasted blazer was called forward.  To keep the look slightly more ‘me’ I added my new favourite mom jeans from ASOS, they’re call the ‘Fairleigh’ and they have to be the most flattering fit I’ve ever tried!  Although if anyone else has any suggestions for mom jeans please leave them in the comments below, I have already tried Topshop but I’m sorry they were just too baggy for my liking.

    This look is gorgeous, Emma. I love asos myself for jeans but find high waisted styles just dont suit me. I prefer a mid rise, i cant actually believe that shirt is from new look (eventhough iv seen you do it before). Im dying to see whats going to be on trend for ss16 ! I expect you already know . I wanted a bit of styling advice, ill tag you in a pic on insta because I know you ll be honest

      Thanks Vicky! I was never a fan of mom jeans either because of the high waist but now I’ve found the perfect fit and it’s true love! Yeh I know right, New Look is full of hidden treasures 😉
      Got your message on Insta, I hope my advise was useful x
