How to wear A/W Style Challenge.

Although I am a firm believer that fashion doesn't have to be trend lead I do enjoy seeing the style looks of the seasons. This Autumn/Winter we have a variety of style trends that started on the runway and emerged on to the high street. Leapord Print, shades of green, and monochrome are just a few of the popular trends.

 'Most Wanted' the lifestyle magazine from Voucher Codes  got in touch with me recently and asked if I wanted to be involved with a styling challenge. The challenge involved me choosing a current style trend for A/W and using a styling budget show the trend in a variety of looks. I was well up for it, mainly because I am fairly obsessed with a particular style that is dominating the high street right now; The Plaid/Tartan trend. I am really into that 90's grunge look, normally I am quite feminine with my looks but am feeling a change in myself and my own personal style and am looking for a more rough around the edges kinda image. Here is my interpretation of the Tartan trend.

  1. Argh you look amazing Callie!!! I wish I'd picked up those leggings when I saw them in Primark last week. xx

  2. I love them Mel! They are so so comfy!!!!!!!!!!!! x

  3. Love the first look :)

  4. I love the fact that grunge is back again - I wore it in the 90's and I'm wishing I had kept my combat green dungarees that I lived in back then with my doc martens! I had so much tartan as well including an amazing pair of ripped tartan shorts. Strange how fashion revolves!

  5. Oh my good, those tartan leggings on you are amazing!!!

  6. Love those leggings, and the skirt is gorgeous!

  7. I wanted that skirt so bad. I always order in a 14 but it was so tight, returned it and then the 16 sold out! I really like pairing it with a sweat shirt. I like both outfits! I love all the Tartan on Asos' site!

  8. I love those tartan leggings. Gorgeous. ♡ You're looking great in both outfits. ♡

  9. Love both looks! and I love your style and blog it gives me a lot of inspiration! <3 x
