Style File | Suede on Suede

I'm totally in love the 70's trend right now, so it seemed only right to style one of the most coveted looks of the season, suede, for my first 'Style File'. From Gucci to Saint Laurent, the S/S15 catwalks were awash with suede as designers looked towards the 70's era for inspiration. Although at first I was somewhat hostile to the notion of dressing like a cowgirl, after falling in love with H&M's modern (and very bold) take on the suede jacket, my faith was restored. And, as a firm believer that less is definitely not more when it comes to fashion, I'll be styling suede on suede this season when it comes to embracing the 70's look.

Weekly Want | Katrantzou A-Z Totes

When I heard my one of my favourite designers, Mary Katrantzou, had partnered with Matches Fashion to design a 26-piece collection of alphabet totes, I knew I'd be lusting after one for the foreseeable future. Inspired by her typography influenced Resort 2015 collection, each bag exhibits a stylised letter worked into a colourful Katrantzou print. Although originally assuming the 'R' tote would shoot to the top of my wishlist, after seeing the full collection I have fallen in love with all 26. And, with only 20 of each individual bag being made, if you're after any letter other than X, Y or Z you'll have to shop fast!

Spring Wishlist | The Next Edit

With my current university assignment running in partnership with Next, recently I've been spending a great deal of time browsing their stores, directory and e-commerce. As a result I have not only found myself frequently online shopping instead of working, but I have also developed a somewhat extensive wishlist of all things Next. Below is a brief round up of the items I'm currently lusting after, with the navy utility jacket sitting right at the top of my spring wardrobe must-haves. 

Next wishlist

Beauty Watch | Graphic Eyeliner

It's good news for winged eyeliner perfectionists as graphic eyeliner makes a comeback. Coveted at catwalks such as Fendi and Versace; whether it's for a night on the town or simply to switch up the monotony of the same old cat-eye, queue a steady hand and finesse to embrace this seasons beauty cachet. 

'That' suede skirt

From the second Olivia Palermo stepped out in M&S's suede skirt at New York Fashion Week, it was destined to be the it piece of the season. It has since become the subject of fashion frenzy amongst the fashion press, with the 70's inspired staple featuring in almost every fashion publication under the sun. Due to debut in just 100 of the chains top stores on April 10th, for £199 you can snap up the most talked about item of the season. It's good news for fashion fanatics with a lesser budget too, with the retailer set to offer a faux suede version - available for a reasonable price of £39.50. Phew.
