Cardigan, t-shirt, shirt dress and jeans (turned into shorts): H&M/ Bag: Jost/ Shoes: Converse

I took inspiration from the grunge trend which has been pretty big this year. Think plaid, ripped denim, dr. martens, layers and baggy cardigans.

I decided to make an outfit on ASOS inspired by the trend, here it is:

How to wear…the blazer

I’m loving blazers at the moment. They really dress up any outfit and there are so many different styles out there. I bought an 80s blue blazer on ebay and thought I’d show you 3 different ways to wear it.

Casual

Like I said, blazers can dress up any outfit, including a plain white t-shirt and jeans. I took some inspiration from Kate Moss in this new ad:

Night Out

I love wearing a blazer over a dress for a night out. As this is an 80s blazer I was inspired and decided to pair it with neon pink heels and a fitted black glitter dress.

The dress and necklace are from ASOS, the bag was my mom’s and I bought the heels on a trip to London, I think at Piccadilly market.

Androgynous

I thought I would try out the androgynous trend, as it’s pretty big at the moment. I took some inspiration from this:

I paired my blazer with a shirt (M&S) and a cravat which I had bought in a vintage shop once. I also wore some lipstick to try and keep it feminine.

I’m not too sure about the results, but it was fun giving it a shot!

Oriental Trend 2012

 

The oriental trend is big for fall, with Jason Wu and Dries van Noten being great examples of the trend on the catwalk.

Here’s how I’m wearing it:

The kimono is a great way to wear this trend. There are lots of options on the high street and they’re easy to wear and comfortable. You can dress them up for a night out, or just keep it casual in a t-shirt and jeans. I got this one from ASOS, although last time I looked it had sold out. You can also find some great dresses in oriental prints or styles, so keep your eyes out.
