The Kipling New Classics collection is the latest offering from the accessory brand, that is all about embodying the 'back to basics' approach. Kipling have revived their 90s roots, by giving their signature styles a 2018 update making this range perfect for people on the go, who want an easy to carry bag that is also water repellent against our unpredictable British weather. The collection is also unisex making it accessible for anyone wanting a classic statement bag.

In today's post I'm showcasing how to style the Onalo (red version) and the Onalo L (black version) to show how versatile both bags can be as a unisex range. With the collection designed for people on the go, I wanted the outfits to embody that approach by styling us in clothing that we would tend to wear on a casual day. I decided to style the red bag against a white & black colour palette, as I really wanted the red to speak for itself. I choose to style it with a ultra feminine top paired with a pair of  tailored black shorts, for an everyday set-up. For the black bag we decided to pair a classic band tee with a pair of light colour shorts to add a contrast to the whole look, which we topped off with a pair of classic (and uber practical) vans that in turn tie the outfit together nicely.

Needless to say Kipling's New Classics range offer the working person a collection of bags to suit their everyday needs, whether thats for the gym or work trips in between.

I can't believe it has nearly taken me a month to get round to posting my holiday outfits from my trip to Florida in June. Wynwood (Miami) was one of those places I fell hard for last year, and was one of those places that given the chance a second visit was a must. Situated in the Arts District of the city, it's a place that screams with creativity and is an art-lovers heaven, with most walls covered by some sort of *incredible* mural and the streets scattered with modern art sculptures, inspiration can be found on every street corner.

The staple hoodie has been my ultimate go-to piece for comfort and casual wear for as long as I can remember. You can quite often see me in one paired with a pair of simple jogging bottoms, as they are perfect for chilling around the house and doing errands. But when it comes to everyday wear I often prefer to style the piece with a more refined approach. Whether that is mixing the sporty vibe with a slightly more tailored feel, like today or layering over a skirt or dress for a still casual yet ‘girlie’ look. Like I mentioned, I have decided to go towards the more tailored approach for styling todays outfit, as I’ve spoken about my recent love of styling more cleaner silhouettes and styles in the past and thought this would be the perfect piece to do so. With this in mind I decided to pair my NICCE hoodie with a pair of fitted flared trousers and then playing on the sporty vibe with the addition of the bum bag and Nike AF-1’s, as my key accessories.

In addition to this style, NICCE offer a wide range of women’s hoodies in a range of colours and styles, to suit your personal style preferences. The fit is the perfect combination of oversized and still maintaining a flattering shape. They are made from an extremely soft to touch fabric that make them all the cosier to wear while out and about. It is a piece that
I can quickly see becoming a wardrobe staple that will see me through the cooler months, and I can’t wait to start layering it with roll-necks and tailored jackets come autumn.

As well as an awesome array of hoodies and sweatshirts NICCE also offer a wide range of tops, bottoms, swimwear, dresses, underwear and coats/jackets that embody the streetwear brands’ aesthetic perfectly by fusing the latest casual-wear and street-wear trends, at an affordable price point.

Sharing an outfit I wore the other day when the weather was a tad on the more summery side than it is today - a downpour is currently taking place when I type this post.

With the blazer being a firm favourite of mine I wanted to experiment with styling it on its own as more of a statement piece by accompanying it with a belt, as a nod to 80s styling. I'm not going to lie but I'm definitely into this styling technique as it can instantly dress up an outfit.

Following on from my recent love of styling tailored pieces, within my wardrobe, I've decided to mix in a bit of a 'sporty vibe' into today's look with the addition of my nike's and checkered trousers. Needless to say that the checkered trouser x nike combo. is one that I'm often reaching for, as my go-to.

Styling a whole outfit in muted tones has become something which I've started to experiment with more and more, especially with the warmer months. As well as being a switch up from my usual all black / dark outfits, there is something about styling a look like this with a pair of 'sliders' that instantly transforms it to a more casual set-up.

As of late the humble blazer has become an essential in my day-to-day wardrobe, as it is a piece that is extremely versatile to style, but it can also instantly transform a fairly casual looking outfit into something a little more 'put together'.

It's an item that is extremely easy to source second hand, as most vintage/charity shops will stock some sort of blazer suit. Which means you can quite easily build up a collection of the item, fairly inexpensively without the need to sacrifice on quality. Because of this it has become an item that I'm always on the lookout for on my frequent 'secondhand' shopping trips, as there is always a bargain to be had.
