Styling Four Trends

13 February 2019

I love clothes and I love shopping. I mean, I don't even want to admit how many items of clothing I have spread across my three (!!) wardrobes. (I've literally been the same size/height/weight for years now, so it's fair to say I've accumulated rather a lot of pieces. Or that's how I justify my excessive collection to myself at least.)

One thing I don't tend to get too caught up in is trends. Now, don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't like them, I just like what I like and buy whatever I fancy. So, for today's post I thought I'd style four of the current trends on the high street and report back with my thoughts...

Styling Four Trends: neon, leopard print, one shoulder, teddy fur.
So, where better to start than with an absolute marmite item. I've previously tried on a few neon pink pieces but I decided they weren't really for me, so, here we are trying out what can only be described as baby sick green/Stabilo highlighter yellow. Now, I actually love this a lot more than I thought I would. It's the Oversized Neon Jumper*, I have mine in S/M and definitely wouldn't want it any bigger. It's so cosy and has the hugest roll neck. You definitely wouldn't get lost in a crowd wearing this piece. I just styled it with black Topshop Leigh jeans and black heeled boots from Primark. As for a jacket, I would definitely wear a black jacket, perhaps a leather one. Overall, I like this a lot more than I thought I would and I'm definitely going to make the most of it whilst neon is on trend again. (The last time I wore neon I was at a school disco with legwarmers on, so yeah, a long while ago). 


Styling Four Trends: neon, leopard print, one shoulder, teddy fur.
Now, I'm not new to leopard by any means but I thought I ought to include some in this post because it really is everywhere at the moment. This is the Leopard Midi Dress* and it literally fits like a glove. I have mine in a size 8 and it's a perfect fit. It's a really thick, stretchy material and I love it. Now, I'm not usually that much of a midi dress fan and tend to opt for a mini, but I think I'm slowly being converted. This dress I just paired with black heeled ankle boots and a black fur jacket, and it's a solid 9/10. 


Styling Four Trends: neon, leopard print, one shoulder, teddy fur.
Ahhh, the one shoulder trend. I must admit, this is one I just didn't really get. This is the Mustard One Shoulder Midi* and like the other dress, is really good quality. Now, it does fit a bit funny around the chest, but the fit everywhere else is great and I love the split on the leg. I think this colour would definitely look a lot better on me with a tan so either I need a date with St Moritz or a holiday... I know which I'd prefer. Having tried a one shoulder piece, I'm still not sure I get it, and I won't be rushing out to buy more things in this style, I'm perfectly happy with my regular two straps, yanno?


Styling Four Trends: neon, leopard print, one shoulder, teddy fur.
And the final trend; teddy fur. I LOVE THIS STUFF. I recently bought a burgundy teddy sweatshirt from Stradivarius and it is the cosiest thing ever. So, when I spotted this Grey Teddy Jumper Dress* I decided it really needed trying out. It is the softest material ever and is slightly longer at the back than the front. I styled this with black vans and a denim jacket for a super chilled, casual look. I also think this would look fab with black velvet over the knee boots and a leather jacket, or just with leather trousers whilst it's still pretty chilly out. This is 100% going to be my go to lazy day outfit, it's just so so comfy. It seems a bit paradoxical to be wearing a big cosy dress whilst having your legs exposed to the elements, but that's a problem Becca can deal with another day...


Aaaaaand that's a wrap. Those are the four trends I decided to try out and my favourite by far is the teddy fur, closely followed by the leopard print. Neon is in third place - I can't work out if it looks really good or really bad, and my least favourite of the four is the one shoulder trend. I'm not sure I'll ever get it. 


Which is your favourite of these outfits?

  1. I love that teddy fur dress. I want one to lounge around in at home, I’m lacking in the loungewear department.

    My favourite trend at the moment is neon. I HATED it at first but love how it looks against my skin tone, especially lime green and orange!

  8. I'm a huge fan of the teddy fur trend, not only the look but also how cosy it is. I know leopard has been all the rage recently too but I don't feel like I suit it very well- I love the black variation on it in the dress and feel like that might be a good compromise for me!
