Trends making the rounds in the North/West of England
From pastel baseball caps to practical footwear, the sport/luxe trend is all the range up North. My personal favourite, right now, is the pastel suede baseball cap which seems to be making the rounds online as well as on the high street. I can't tell you how much I really want to purchase one for myself! I am definitely a huge fan of this trend... Luxe yet comfortable... Yes please!
Surprisingly, I have started to reach more for black pieces again as of late. I was so against black for a very long time and only wanted to incorporate colour into my wardrobe but noticed myself shying away from this even during the Summer months. My current go-to outfit has to be the black pencil leg trouser paired with a draped front top (black of course) tucked into the pant with a faux pony hair belt... This paired with a pastel blazer and a big black velvet choker is just my absolute fave!
October was a very fun month! With Christmas on the way, I was invited to the Met Quarter Xmas Press day which was jam packed full of their upcoming Christmas collections from a variety of brands which sit between the high street/high end scale such as Armani Exchange.
Another big event for us fashionistas up North was the North West Fashion Festival which is a fantastic annual event, showcasing the hottest new trends from local and national brands as well as a variety of extremely talented artists and TV Personalities who attend to showcase their own beauty/fashion projects or to perform.
Makeup trends are always changing but this year, the hottest products have certainly been the wow-factor highlighter and the bold matte liquid lipstick. These are definitely here to stay for the foreseeable future, especially during these colder months to come.
If you love shopping, you will love Depop. Depop is a mobile shopping app which reminds me of a mix of eBay and Instagram. It is full of the trendiest pieces sold by a variety of people... You will find vintage, handmade, brand new and pre-loved items, all in one place and for amazing prices! I have used Depop as both a buyer and seller and could not recommend it enough! My top purchase to date was definitely a pair of Dior earrings - £12!!!
I love to read but am more visual so I most definitely prefer a good magazine. However, put anything blog related in front of me and I will read for hours on end! That is why I am absolutely obsessed with Blogosphere magazine! Not only does it feature some of my favourite bloggers/vloggers, Blogosphere is jam packed full of very useful tips and tricks which will benefit anybody with a love for the industry.
