Cropped jackets you need to cop

Cropped jackets you need to cop

Cropped jackets have been around since winter of 2017 and I don’t think they’re going anytime soon, they’re the perfect layering item and my favourite type of jacket to wear. For one, they keep you somewhat warm but at the same time you can still show off your outfit! A cropped jacket is the perfect outerwear piece to have during the summer, in all honesty, it should be one of your wardrobe staples.

The evolution of the cropped jackets over the last 3 years is one of my favourites – we’ve seen it go from being just cropped denim jackets to now cropped blazers (which I am LIVING FOR), cropped tweed jackets and cropped leather too! The item has been given a much-needed touch of elegance and we really love to see it.

Shortened to hit right at the waistline, this cut is seriously flattering too and here are my faves atm;

Flares are taking over

Flares are taking over

As we are all aware trouser trends tend to stick around a little longer than others. Look at the skinny jean, which has been influencing the fashion scene for over a decade and a half now. However, all of that has now changed, as the autumn/winter 2019 runways were dominated by wide-legged silhouettes, particularly flares.

If there is one trend that I hope never dies out when it comes to trousers/ jeans, it’s this one. For the last, I would say 3 years people were speculation when this trend would come back into fashion and the moment has finally arrived – flares are taking over! I kid you not, making flares mainstream again was one of the best decisions the fashion industry ever made. Flares look good on ANYONE and EVERYONE. First of all, they make your ass look peachy af, second of all they make you look like you have supermodel legs and lastly with the correct top they give the illusion of an hourglass figure. What’s not to love about these? I think with the comeback of these as well as mom jeans still dominating, we can officially say that the skinny jean is officially DEAD! When was the last time you wore skinny jeans because personally I don’t remember?? Literally ever since I did my blog post on how the skinny jean is dead back in 2017 I have only bought one pair.

The key to rocking flares in this 2020 is to give them a modern twist: I am talking Self-tie silk blouses, button-up cardigans, dramatic sleeve shirts/ blouses, anything sheer, flatforms, and really good tailoring in order to keep the look contemporary, for example; split hems are the hype rn and offer a brand-new take on a classic leg shape.

Here are my fave flares atm;

satin summer

satin summer

In case you didn’t get the memo, satin is no longer just something to wear in the bedroom, underwear is officially the new outerwear and has been for a while now, I mean look at how mainstream the lace bodysuit has become. Fashion is as free and expressive as it has ever been.

I think satin has been around since 2015/16 but I’m not 100% sure because it has only been super popular maybe for the last year and a half, max. By popular I mean it has been all over instagram, our favourite celebrities have been sporting it and of course, our high street stores like Topshop, PLT and River Island have been jumping onto the hype. I remember I bought my first satin top in 2015 (talk about being fashion forward), I bought a pyjama style top from misguided and to this day my mum takes the piss out of me every time I wear it, she literally says are you going to bed every time I wear it but I still love it!

Satin, is the fabric that is dominating 2019 and I am LIVING for it. What I love most about this fabric is how effortless it is, this is the one fabric that you can literally just dash on with a simple casual T-shirt underneath (if you’re wearing a satin top) and a nice pair of mom jeans and it would look like you made an effort when in reality you didn’t. You can either dress it up or dress it down, it is so versatile! It is also extremely comfortable and just overall amazing. From skirts to tops, shorts, dresses (my favourite) and how can I forget, pants however I’m talking wide leg because skinny satin/silk pants in the summer is not a good combo, especially if you sweat a lot like me, that fabric will be stuck to you like glue the entire time. And I am not joking, so please don’t try it, plus I highly doubt anyone could ever create a cute pair of skinny satin pants that I would see myself purchasing, to me that is not a vibe, it’s a fashion disaster.

Flowy midi skirts and midi dresses are not my style. If I wear a midi skirt or dress it has to be tight, that’s what works best for me and my body type and also my height, I’m 5’2 so it gives the illusion that I’m taller than I really am in photos. I think this is what has stopped me from buying satin dresses and skirts in the past because I didn’t think they’d look good on me but boy was I wrong! I purchased the cutest leopard satin slip dress from Topshop in January and I have been obsessed ever since. Everyone needs a satin slip dress in their lives, it fits perfectly in all of the right places, it makes your body look BOMB AF and it suits all body types. A little tip; if you can’t find anything nice in Satin try the underwear section of your favourite clothing store, never fails me.

I have loved seeing the way people have been styling satin on Instagram and Pinterest,  satin dress or skirt with a pair of Doc Martens and chunky trainers that is a vibe and so much more, here are my favourite satin piece ATM.
