Worldwide Wardrobe Competition
Shopping in London
Since I live in London and work on Oxford Street, this outfit is pretty much a collage of what I wear on my average day. One of the key essentials of shopping in London is comfort, comfort, comfort! The amount of times my heels have rubbed and sent me home has been countless. I chose this cute cropped coral blouse as I actually bought it the other day and love the shape and style. I have paired it with these extra comfortable Joni high-waisted jeans which are really easy to move around in and suck you in at the all right places. For accessories, I've gone for a beige theme suitable for the upcoming Spring season. I love this beige fedora by Topshop, there are so many of these bopping along the London streets at the moment. I chose this large handbag as I always carry around my make-up, a book for the tube and a must-needed umbrella. Lastly, these beige buckle boots have a chunky heel so will be easy to walk in and tie the outfit together.
Cocktails in New York
I've never been to New York and since my addiction with Sex and the City, it has always been on my to-do list. I've channelled a Carrie Bradshaw style here by matching prints on the top and bottom and also baring a little bit of daring midriff! I love the shapes used within this print, it is so unique and eye-catching so will definitely stand out amongst the fashionistas in the Big Apple. The tapered trousers are also really flattering on the figure and a real bargain at £35. I have paired the outfit with statement necklace which has been a key trend this season. I stuck with a simplistic gold chain style as the print does all the talking. I chose this Zara clutch to clash against the print of the clothing but also compliment the shades of colour within the top and trousers. Lastly, I paired these nude Kurt Geiger wedges which add a simplistic touch to the outfit and are not too high so allow you to last the entire night!
Sightseeing in Paris
Whenever I think of Paris, I think of the chic fashion capital of the world and the classic culture of the city. I decided to channel the style of Paris through my outfit with a cute 'Garcon' cropped t-shirt layered under a trouser jumpsuit. I love the simplistic stripes along the arms of the t-shirt and how these compliment the sheer stripes within the floppy hat. I decided to keep to a monochrome colour scheme which reminds me of the classic Chanel style and also fits in with the monochrome trend for this season. I clashed a bright red bag against the outfit to add a flash of colour. A red lippy is also a must with this outfit!
Partying at the Full Moon Party in Thailand
I've been to many 'Full Moon' style parties in my time and something I have always wanted to do in life is travel around Thailand and experience one for real. Neon shades are a massive trend at these parties so I decided on this bright tie-dye Topshop dress which features knot tie details down the side seams. The shape of the dress is fairly simplistic which allows the swirls and colours of the tie-dye to really stand out. I didn't want to over-do this outfit too much as the dress is a statement by itself. I added a simple ethnic style necklace, some must-needed sunglasses and a beige perforated duffle bag. I think a crossbody bag would be essential at a Full Moon party as then you can just sling it over your shoulder and not worry about losing it. I've also added these white and gold sandals which would be suitable for the beach setting and also add a bit of glamour to the outfit.
Clubbing in Ibiza
Ibiza is one of the destinations I can actually say I have been to and I definitely did a lot of clubbing so this outfit was fairly easy! Ibiza is the clubbing capital of the world so you won't be catching many people wearing glamourous dresses as it's all about letting go and having a good time. For this reason, I chose some cute denim shorts featuring cut-out detailing and a harness style bralet to match. I love the white mesh panel of the top contrasted against the double black shoulder straps. I added a holographic clutch to give the outfit some colour and this one by H&M is large enough to hold all your essentials. I think sandals would make this outfit too casual, so I chose some heeled jelly shoes which are becoming a craze once again. I used to live in jelly shoes when I was younger, and I love how the heel adds a grown-up twist. Lastly, I added a gold coin headband as a piece of jewellery which would look gorgeous worn over tousled sea salt locks!
