Very Magazine Feature - Colour Block by Night!

Wednesday 21 May 2014

Last month, I was asked by to take part in a blogger challenge for the May issue of their magazine (which comes in an OK Magazine bundle)! I was given the trend 'Colour Blocking by night' and asked to create a look using a selection of their new in items.

I've worked with Very before (click here for my Bristol street style post) and it's always a huge honour to be featured in a magazine. The mag hit the shelves yesterday and I did a little SQUEE when I picked up a copy before work.

Colour blocking can be quite a difficult trend to style, especially at night, but I'm really happy with my final look! I didn't want to go for a bog standard, bodycon dress, so chose pieces which were true to my style and that would work for other trends.

I've always wanted a real white leather jacket but I settled for this faux quilted version from Love Label. The reviews suggested sizing up which I regret doing as it certainly runs true to size. My Glamorous powder pink camisole is quite sheer but has a really loose, generous fit which I like! These awesome Anna skinny jeans from Ted Baker are uber comfortable and I adore the jade colour (which makes me think of Jade - awww). I wasn't sure how they ran so opted my normal size (26) and found they do loosen up quite quickly so if you're inbetween sizes, you might want to go for the smaller size!

I accessorised with a PIECES Sasa oversized clutch bag, a statement necklace from Little Mistress and these awesome Ted Baker Mitla court shoes in orange! I'm a 6.5 in shoes but the 6 fits perfectly and I want to invest in the black pair. They're officially the nicest heels I own.

I was also interviewed about my style and this trend, which you can read if you have a copy of the Very magazine! Are you a fan of colour blocking? Would you wear this outfit?

T - Doing it for the fame.

  19. Congratulations on being featured in Very Magazine!!! You look fabulous on its pages! Your Glamorous Cami and Ted Baker jeans look wonderful styled together. I love the colour combination of pink and green, and your Little Mistress statement necklace is gorgeous.

  20. I saw it on Instagram :) congrats!!! Loving this mix of bright and sweet colours!

  21. Eeee, congratulations again! It's always the best being featured in print I think, I don't know why but it just feels more special & like it's a bigger deal. It is a hard trend to pull off, but you did it perfectly! Love the colour combo here too by the way, so summery & it makes me think of icecream for some reason! :D

  22. Check you out, Miss Thang! Looking stunning :) Love the colour blocking trend but I always ended up wearing something with a print on. Coloured denim is something I'd like to take a pop at, but what colour to choose!? That is the question... x
