Easy Ways To Stay Stylish All Year Around

If you know me well you know I’m probably not the most stylish person out there… I certainly don’t know my way around fashion or what’s “in”. But I do love tips to help me as a “style newbie”, so hopefully you’ll find this helpful too!

Is style important to you? If the answer is yes, then you might be wondering if there is something that you can do to stay stylish all year around.

Down below, we’re going to be taking a look at some of the easy ways that you can remain stylish through every season of the year, so keep reading down below if you would like to find out more.

Choose The Right Accessories

Of course, one of the most important parts of remaining stylish is going to be choosing the right accessories. This might be something simple like a belt or a bag, or even a hat. It depends on your style, what the season is and so much more. You then need to look at jewelry as this is the queen of accessories. Would you rather go for a simple gold chains that is elegant and understated? Or, would you rather go a little more in your face with an arm full of bracelets? The choice is yours, so it will depend on your personal style.


Keep It Simple

Next, it’s important to make sure that you are opting for simple choices with your style. For instance, in summer, you can select a pair of denim shorts and a white tee. Believe it or not, an option like this is always going to be fashionable and help you gain the right type of attention. In winter, you can choose something like a longer winter jacket or coat, a scarf and a knitted jumper. 

Remember, style options like this don’t need to cost you a fortune either. It’s just a case of taking the time to find a seller with styles that you like. 

Watch The Trends 

Another way to stay in style is to make sure that you are keeping track of the latest trends. To do this, you might want to think about exploring fashion and style blogs that have all the info and choices that you need. Alternatively, you could explore social media for advice on the latest trends. There are even social media profiles dedicated to tracking the fashion choices of influencers as well as top celebrities. 

Timeless Choices 

Finally, you should make sure that you are exploring a few timeless options for your wardrobe. One example would be a leather jacket. Leather jackets look great and come in a variety of different styles. You can even get faux leather jackets that are ideal for animal lovers. There are other timeless choices too including white trainers and denim jackets for summer. 

We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the ways that you can stay stylish all year around. It’s important that you manage to do this if style is important in your daily life. We wish you the very best of luck, and hope that you find a way to keep your style in tact in every month of the year.

Post marathon and another adidas haul

Post New Forest Marathon I’m feeling pretty good.

I’m definitely tired though and my motivation to go out and run all the miles has naturally dipped. My next marathon (yes, I always have another in the pipeline…) is the Portsmouth Coastal Marathon (again). This is in December so I have a good few weeks before I need to ramp up the miles again.

I ran 14 miles the Sunday after the marathon with Kyle, which was probably unwise. I ran it because I’ve been enjoying running with Kyle while he trains for the London Marathon (beginning of October) and to be honest I just wanted to enjoy another long run with him before his training finishes. He’s decided it’s unlikely he’ll run another marathon anytime soon because he hasn’t enjoyed the training that much, which is fair enough. So after the marathon I’ll be running solo again.

His training has gone amazingly, despite his feelings towards it. I’m sure he’ll be absolutely amazing at the marathon and I look forward to supporting him in a couple of weeks.

I’m now enjoying some downtime though in terms of mileage. I’ve been increasing my strength sessions which will help build back some strength up and hopefully keep my injury free. This has sort of fallen to the wayside while my mileage has been higher. Training for a marathon with a little one is a tough juggle!

Anyway onto my latest adidas haul… it’s probably quite obvious, but I’m a big fan of their clothing for running and training. I’ve tried many of their clothes over the past year and I honestly can’t fault them. I recently got another haul of items and as always it was such a success. I just find their items of such good quality and in general just look awesome.

I’ll mention their sports bras again because I’ve been wearing them for ages and can assure that they last many washes. I have two of their Ultimate Bras, one in white and one in black. They’re super comfy and just go perfectly with anything I want to wear on top. They also don’t have those annoying little cup inserts. It’s just one piece of material.

As someone still breastfeeding (14 months strong!) I find the support to be perfect for running as well. OK so I don’t have ginormous boobs, but they’re definitely requiring more support than the piddly crop tops I was wearing pre-pregnancy. Running without proper support is not pleasant now!

I also love adidas shorts. Whether they’re tight fitting more cycling short style or looser fitting more traditional running shorts. I have a pair of their 4 Inch Shorts in blue and they’re a dream.

Also wearing the white Ultimate Bra here

They don’t ride up, they give a lovely silhouette to my body and the colour is just gorgeous. Normally I’d stick to black but I’m so glad I went with a colour instead. My running belt sits nicely on them and, for me, they’re a great length – not tooooo short but short enough.

I also got a pair of looser shorts, the Handball Training Shorts, which aren’t normally my style but I thought I’d try something different.

They’re like a combination of tight and loose if that makes sense. A nice thick width of a waist band that sits on your waist and then loose-fitting legs.

Both shorts are great for running.

Now a pair of shorts that might not be the best for running but it great for lounging around the house in are these bad boys, the Adicolor Essentials French Terry Shorts. These are so comfortable and so easy to wear I struggle to not put them on all week for working from home! They’re super soft and cosy, perfect for the coming winter. Checkout their tracksuits and loungewear for more of this kind of chilled vibe. Ideal for the coming colder months.

Busting The Myth Of Plus Size Fashion

While I’m very much 24/7 mum right now, I have a post on fashion that I hope you’ll enjoy!

There are many styles of plus size dresses available in online shopping stores, giving curvy women a chance to look very beautiful and fashionable. Curvy women will meet all kinds of people. People may not praise you every time you wear elegant clothes, but they will notice your dress.

Traditionally, many designers have stayed away from expanding sizes due to erroneous perceptions of low consumer demand, weak retailer support, and increased productivity cost. The latter included a 15% to 20% estimated increase in original production costs due to fabric properties and subtle technical changes to clothing such as zippers or panels. Brands also had to consider the cost of creating new basic patterns and additional style samples and hiring new fitted models.

Interestingly enough, those obstacles were relatively surmountable. It didn’t cost a lot of money or a lot of time. It took a lot of commitment however to launch their extended size series, but in return it brought a very positive emotional effect. It gave people a sense of belonging which translated to actually restoring their dignity.

In all honesty, extreme commitment broke the rules, the allegorical beliefs, and the stereotyped assumptions. It became a fashion myth buster by having plus size models on magazine covers wear modern and curvy clothes that made them unique. Extended-size designer clothing is now on the rise, so if your size is 14 and above, there are many things to explore. 

So, let’s take a look at some of the best positive aspects of plus size.

You have a unique style 

You may not realize this, but most of the clothes you usually wear are unique, making your curves look unique. The plus-size online store offers a wide range of exclusive fashion clothing, which is usually not available in physical stores. The curvy outfits you will wear will be different from those worn by your friends or other girls. So, be proud of your curves and show them off with fashionable clothes. 

Major brands have expanded to plus size 

Before, plus size designer clothing was limited to sizes 12 and 14, now it has been expanded to larger sizes. Retailers offer extended-size clothing in a variety of colours, patterns and designs. Plus-size women of all ages can choose their favourite clothing and easily order online. Curvy women can now go to online stores to choose their favourite clothes in the most fashionable and sought-after colours and patterns.

Excellent variety to choose from

So far, the biggest disappointment when buying plus-size clothing is the limited range of clothing and styles. However, this is no longer the case, because plus-size women enjoy unique benefits. After all, the choice of styles is almost never ending. Therefore, as plus size, you can enjoy new plus size fashion clothing choices more than ever. 

If you are a plus size, these are some benefits you can proudly enjoy. What are you waiting for? Browse the plus size online store now, choose the most fashionable clothing ever, and show off your curves in a stylish way.

What You Can Do To Be More Stylish (And Feel Good At The Same Time

I am definitely not a fashionista or have any real ideas about style, so any simple and inexpesnvei tips I’m all ears for! And this post is full of easy simple tricks to help, enjoy 🙂

Becoming more stylish can feel like a constant battle, especially if you are a parent. But, as always, if you follow some simple tried-and-tested rules, you can achieve almost miraculous results. 

In this post, therefore, we take a look at some of the incredibly simple things you can do to be more stylish and how you can totally change your look in the proces. 

Throw Out Anything That Doesn’t Fit

We have a tendency to keep clothes that don’t fit us because we imagine that some day, in the future, they will. But that’s not always true. Many times, we will never be able to wear that clothes that we wore when we were younger again. So holding onto them doesn’t make sense (and it can sabotage your style). 

Instead, be realistic about what fits you and use that strength to cut down the size of your wardrobe. Don’t tempt yourself into trying to wear something you can’t. 

Swap Clothes With Your Most Stylish Friends

Here’s another great idea you’ll want to try: clothes swapping with your most stylish friends. 

Is there somebody in your life who is always dressed impeccably? If so, then ask them if you can do a wardrobe swap with them and see what you come up with. Often, you’ll discover items that you would never have bought yourself but still suit you anyway

Pick Items With A History

Don’t just get all your clothes from generic stores (even branded ones). Instead, make a conscious effort to choose garments and accessories with a little history behind them. 

All sorts of clothes have hidden histories that make them more interesting. Claddagh rings meaning, for instance, dates back over a century. Plus, by choosing items that have a story behind them, you always have something to talk about when you have a conversation with your friends about clothing. 

Create A Uniform

People tend to believe that they should never buy an item of clothing that’s similar to something that they already own. But, again, that’s not always true. Many times, picking something that works with everything else that you have is the best strategy. That way you can create a kind of “uniform” that negates the need to think so intensely about what you wear all the time. 

Get To Know Your Wardrobe

For many women, looking more stylish is often just a matter of getting to know their wardrobes better. In many cases, there are many missed opportunities to upgrade your appearance by using what you already have in clever and innovative ways. 

Rent Your Clothes

If you’re stuck for cash but want to keep your style moving forwards, you can also explore the idea of renting your clothes. Today, there are many such brands available, allowing you to quickly try out new types of clothes before you finally take the plunge and actually buy them. These options are ideal for people who just want something nice for a special occasion, like a wedding or a party.

Refreshing Your Wardrobe this Autumn

Working from home for me has meant a lot of my work wardrobe has been left a bit sad and unloved… I’ve lived a lot in leggings and hoodies!

But I’m trying to be more conscious of not getting into bad habits and sprucing myself up from time to time to make myself feel good. With autumn here it’s now all about big jumpers, thick tights and skirts. Still comfortable but a bit smarter and fancier than just leggings!

Here’s an article on autumn fashion you might enjoy to give you some inspiration 🙂

As much as we love to cling on to summer for as long as possible, it’s probably time to admit that autumn is here. The afternoons are getting darker, the trees are starting to become bare, and the temperature is falling. It’s time to fish out those chunky knits, find your winter hat and gloves and pack away your summer shorts and swimwear. 

If you’ve spent the last few months enjoying summery prints, bright colours and loose, comfortable clothes, the idea of restrictive jeans and jumpers, dull colours and practical outfits might be a little upsetting. But, don’t worry, there are plenty of ways to refresh your autumn wardrobe so that you love it just as much as those summer dresses.

Look at What You’ve Got

Before you rush out and buy a whole new wardrobe, take a look at what you’ve got. Buying new coats, boots and winter accessories can be fun. But, it can also be expensive, and money is tighter than usual for many of us this year. So, first, take a look at what you’ve already got. Look at what you can work with, what needs replacing and what you can fix. Then, consider shopping second hand on eBay and in charity stores for anything that you do need. 

Layer Up

Layers are crucial in autumn. The weather is changeable, and while you may need to wrap up first thing in the morning, the afternoons can be much warmer. Make sure you’ve got plenty of light layers, that work well with other items of clothing, and don’t underestimate how effective a simple vest can be when it comes to keeping warm.

Keep Your Summer Favourites 

Layers also give you the chance to wear your much-loved summer clothes for longer. Add thick tights under skirts, dresses and even shorts. Put a long-sleeved t-shirt under a summer dress or shirt and add jumpers and long-line cardigans for extra warmth without losing style. 

Add Some Colour

In autumn and winter, many of us are guilty of sticking to dark colours and avoiding patterns. But, autumn is filled with colour. Plum, navy, dark green and mustard are always popular at this time of the year. But, don’t be scared to add some summer brights to your look, especially with your jewellery and accessories. 

Invest in Good Quality

Fast fashion is cheap, fun and easy. But, it doesn’t last, it won’t keep you warm, and it’s unlikely to be waterproof. It’s also bad for the environment and creates a false economy. It can be better value to buy second hand, high-quality goods. At least invest in good quality boots and a coat which will keep you warm and dry. 

Shop for Your Lifestyle

If you do need to buy new clothes and shoes this season, keep your lifestyle in mind. It’s no good buying things that you’ll never wear. Think about how much time you are likely to spend outdoors, what you do in your spare time, and what you really need to enjoy the lifestyle that you are used to. 

Have Fun with Waterproofs

We wear our waterproofs on wet, grey days—the days when we need cheering up the most. So, have some fun with prints, patterns and colours. Find items that make you smile, and you’ll probably cheer other people up too. 

Add Some Glamour

Autumn and winter don’t have to be boring or just practical. You can still wear glamorous clothing and enjoy more stylish pieces. If you are looking for something for an occasion this autumn, jumpsuits are in fashion and always look great, even if you have to layer them up for extra warmth. 

Be Bold with Hair and Makeup

Your clothes aren’t the only way to refresh your look this autumn. Add some colour to your makeup with bold lipsticks and smoky eyes. You might also want to consider a new hair colour and style if it’s been the same all year. 

Get Creative

One of the best ways to create a unique autumn wardrobe is by getting creative. Make your own clothes, buy from charity shops and upcycle outfits into something new and interesting. Even small touches, like adding a patch or brooches, can give new life to an old outfit. 

Autumn is here, winter is coming. Wrapping up warm can help you to stay comfortable and healthy, and even give you the chance to enjoy the season. So, embrace it. Have fun with autumn fashions, and enjoy some glorious autumnal walks with your family and friends.
