Finally, it’s time to curate our summer wardrobe. Summer styling is fun because it is effortless and relaxed. But the thought of where to start can be overwhelming. One essential summer style is embroidered tops. Embroidered tops is one style that never goes out of trend. So today on the blog I will be sharing some stylish tops from high street shops to help you curate your summer wardrobe. Embroidered tops create a very relaxed boho look. It is also an essential item for your holiday suitcase.
As you can make out from my blog, I am a sucker for good high street finds. British high street is known for championing fashion trends and it is has become very easy for us to get hold of key seasonal pieces. While I do not always follow all seasonal trends. I do surrender to a few. So let’s have a look at some key pieces online.
Topshop Poplin Embroidered Puff Sleeve Top
Summer is all about fresh looks and this top is no exception. It is very pretty and 100% cotton. Shop this top here
Blue Embroidered Sleeve Bardot Neck Top
This sweet number from New Look is ideal for your holiday suitcase. Wear it with cropped jeans or shorts and tan mules to complete the look. Shop the top here
Zara is good place to find embroidered tops on the high street. I love this cream dotted mesh blouse. Pair it with khaki trousers for an office look or cropped jeans for a more casual look.
Absolutely love this embroidered long sleeve blue top from Next. Again it is 100% cotton and I think I can live in it for the entire summer.
I am tempted by so many new options now. What do you regularly wear during summer? I love a good summer top, cropped jeans and classic mules. Here are some more suggestions from the online world.
As always, I would love to hear your thoughts. Till then, stay stylish.
Christmas is just around the corner, and one thing is for sure; we can’t stop thinking of the delicious festive food or the festive clothing for the upcoming and super exciting parties. Even though, we are ready for a mouth-watering lunch or dinner anytime, when it comes to “I have a party to attend, but what do I wear now?”, we would probably get panicked and answer with the oh-so-classic “ I have nothing to wear!”.
In order to keep our calmness and never “lose it” when that time comes, the best tactic for a girl is, to always be perfectly prepared. Investing in a gorgeous sparkly or velvet dress, sounds like the only idea that comes in mind, but sometimes depending on our mood, we just can’t be bothered to wear something too girly or over-exposing. There is no need to worry; other equally beautiful and eye-catching outfit ideas like the look I’m wearing here, are available for you to get inspired.
The truth is that a formal dress makes us feel feminine and pretty, but have you tried wearing a tux with high heels? Power dressing even for parties, has the ability to not only make us look well-dressed, but also to uplift and boost our confidence like anything else. It’s just a different, sexy and powerful feeling, that you are able to understand only if you try it.
In today’s post, I’m showing you how to master the power dressing, if you fancy giving it a go during these Holidays. A simple yet luxurious black blazer, combined with a sleek black pair of trousers featuring a velvet trimming detail, is the way to go. A beautiful v-neck silk top, in a cream colour is the best option in order to give a little light in your outfit and make it stand out. Finish the look by adding a pair of high heels and voilà! As for makeup, a red, vampy or dark fuchsia lipstick will enhance the beauty of the monochrome outfit even more.
As we’re getting closer and closer to winter the weather gets even colder and the need for some cosy and comfortable knitwear, gets bigger day by day. Unfortunately, we have to forget all of our beautiful tees or light-weight shirts and switch them up with some heavier and warmer fabrics, ideal for the months ahead. Cashmere, wool or 100% cotton, are the ones that we have to look up to.
Unfortunately for our summer clothes, but fortunately for our winter mood, all the high street designers, came up with amazing jumpers that will definitely satisfy our fashion hunger. From extreme oversized to ruffled or bell-sleeved, there is something for everyone. Even if you can’t afford many pieces from the high-end market, there’s no need to worry, as there are equally beautiful and high quality pieces in more affordable brands as well.
I gathered my favourite pieces, that stood out to me the most and I can’t wait to style them! These are my picks of the best trends for this season to help you take some serious inspiration, and incorporate some (or even all) of them in your winter wardrobe.
We loved the off-the-shoulder trend all summer long and it continues to be on point. Try it with jeans or skirts to add a feminine touch to any casual outfit. I chose this from Asos; simple, fashionable and in a very good price too.
Bell sleeved knits, make a “quiet” statement and spice up even the simplest outfit. They are the perfect way to look pretty in warm clothes. My favourite so far is this, from Topshop.
Cross Over Ties
If you love a beautiful knit, but you are bored by plain designs and want something extra, then this trend is definitely for you. Knits with crossover ties at the hemline like this from French Connection, or with a crossover pattern all over them like this from Mango, are the perfect options.
High neck knits, are the perfect solution for the chillier days. In addition, they make you look extremely elegant and well-dressed. Pair a piece like this from French Connection with your favourite jeans and you’re good to go.
Cold days are now sorted. Time for a cup of hot chocolate, right?
Following on from my last blog post about resort-wear fashion, today’s post focuses on yet another resort-wear look for your holiday wardrobe. Thanks to Apricot Fashion for this lovely Ikat print jumpsuit which I have styled for a holiday evening out look.
Jumpsuits are a great option for your holiday suitcase but you need to wear them right. If you haven’t worn a jumpsuit before, then it can feel a bit intimidating but how you style it makes all the difference. Here are some quick jumpsuit styling tips: Continue Reading
Holiday season is right here and most of us look forward to getting some much needed sun. Sorting out your holiday wardrobe is fun and involves great amount of planning. You have to consider different dressing up occasions and how you can re-use your outfits. Holiday dressing needs to be effortless, yet simple and stylish. Today on the blog I am sharing this tie-dye print Maxi dress from Palanquine. The dress sets you up for a glamorous evening out on the beach. The material is soft and flowy and falls smoothly on you. The fall of the fabric is amazing and brilliantly flatters your shape. The bold contrasting colours add a fun vibe to the outfit. This look is equally appropriate for a night out or for a quiet evening by the beach. Maxi style dresses are a must have in your holiday suitcase. They can easily be transported from the beach to restaurant. Wear this maxi dress with flat sandals and accessorise it with a long neck-piece to complete the look. Continue Reading
With the festive and party season rolling out, I wanted to feature a party list on the blog – your go to list to be party ready. For this blog post I want to feature Very.co.uk as a one-stop shop for this party season. Very’s party edit has everything you need to glam.
We all know that one of the best bits of any party is getting ready. Do keep one thing in mind: glamour. The secret is glitter, glam and shimmer. Going for glam doesn’t mean you have to play it safe. At this time of the year, it is totally socially acceptable to go all-out with a flamboyant outfit.
Here are a few of my favourite outfit options for this season.
1. Sparkle through the night – Opt for a sequin dress. If you are out for a special event or a night out with girls then do rock out wearing a sequin dress. Boasting glamorous appeal with sequin embellishment all over, these are some perfect party dresses from Very.
It is time to bring cheer to your house with some fresh decorating ideas. The Red Notebook has been experimenting with some Christmas decorations and would like to share what I have been up to recently. Continue Reading
Beach holidays are ever so refreshing. I get a sense of calmness just by looking at the blue water. I love beach holiday, actually who doesn’t. I need it at least once a year to get me going. This year I had an opportunity to explore some hidden and quiet beaches along the coast of southern Italy in Puglia.
When it comes to beach dressing it has to be effortless and fuss free. Something that can be multi-purpose: both a cover up and an outfit. Today I share two outfits with you that are ideal for spending an afternoon/evening stroll on the beach.
On Day 2 of our holiday in Puglia, in southern Italy, we drove down to Alberobello. The very reason we planned our holiday was to visit the ancient white cone roof houses called Trullis in Alberobello, a UNESCO world heritage site. What we didn’t realise that it’s a very popular tourist destination and even in the non-holiday season there are queues to get into the city. Arpit’s broken Italian came in very handy when asking for directions, as the GPS didn’t take us to the main parking area. Continue Reading
During this Easter break we decided to visit Italy for our annual holiday. The reason why we chose Italy was because of this song. Both me and Arpit fell in love with the beautiful white cone-roofed houses. We did some research to figure out the exact location of the scenic places featured in the video. Finally we were able to trace the place down to Puglia in southern Italy. Continue Reading
