Hey Everyone! Recently Farfetch.com reached out to me to take part in their Style The Trend competition. I would like to say that I’m honored to be able to take part in their blogger competition, entailing that I would be able to put together a look that represents one of the major trends for Spring Summer 2016. I decided to pull together a look from my own closet, and create an outfit that included ruffles and romance. I love the idea of ruffles for spring, they can make you look whimsical, feminine, and yes romantic.
The pièce de résistance I tailored my look around is a tiered ruffled ‘Marc By Marc Jacobs’ dress, it has sequins on the top, and bows on the shoulders. While the handbag is one that I made myself and was inspired by Ulyana Sergeenko’s SS 2013 collection. I felt like the delicate nature of the bows, and straps on the handbag complimented the ruffles further.
I then chose my yellow coat for how it pairs well with the neutral colour palette of the dress, and because yellow suits the spring season. Yellow represents warmth, the sun, and that cheery dream like mood that wakes us out of that winter slumber. And if you couldn’t tell already I’m truly loving the inclusion of headbands at the moment! I couldn’t resist bringing out my gold leaf headband that I find to be a versatile piece whether you’re aiming for Boho, Romantic, or Greek Goddess styles. Psst. Also at the very bottom of this post I put in a youtube clip that offers more info about Farfetch.com.
