Say it after me, 'Sequins are for life, not just for Christmas'. The ever-wonderful ladies at Motel set us the task of bringing sequins into our new season wardrobes in our latest style challenge. We decided to go for a day look and a night look to show you just how versatile sequins can actually be, and let's face it, January is so dull and gloomy, we could all do with a little glitz to lift our spirits!

I am getting a little too obsessed with the military trend that's doing the rounds at the moment (check back wednesday and thurs for more!) but I thought this was a nice way to toughen up this sequin dress for the day time. The camo tee underneath turns the low v neck into a more wearble day option and the shirt belted over the top gives a tomboyish feel without losing a feminine figure.

Of course this super sexy dress can do all the talking on a night out, but if, like me, you're a little self conscious and not stupid enough to go out in the British arctic conditions without a few layers, this dress can be worn as a cute skirt with the same glittery impact. This statement jumper (one of those beauts that's been in your Save For Later list that magically goes into sale!) provides all the jazz and warmth you could need but I had to add a collar for comfort needs.

How are you wearing your sequins this spring? Check out Motel's selection here!


Trend Inspo: Sports and Stripes

Ready, Set, Go - It's sports day every day this season and 'go faster' stripes are the best way to nail this trend. Some of our favourite catwalks showcased this look back in September and we have been desperate to recreate our favourites! See our top high street picks for SS15's Sport Luxe:

Preen SS15
1. Sweater 2. Sandals 3. Jumper, 4. Shorts

We are loving the modern updates on the cricket jumper - v is definitely back. Add your stripes in cute little layers and finished off with a bright sandal

Topshop Unique SS15
1. Shirt 2. Sandals 3. Blazer. 4. Skirt 5. Bag

The first few looks on the TS Unique runway are spot on for this trend, this being the easiest to wear and adapt from season to season. Switch a tee for a shirt in this chillier weather.

Victoria Beckham SS15
1. Top 2. Sandals 3. Bag 4. Skirt

Bright primary colours may be one key way to wear the trend but monochrome outfits can look just as strong with thick, bold stripes. Zara is definitely leading the way with these pieces with this top/skirt coord being the tip of the iceberg.

Lacoste SS15
1. Jacket 2. Sandals 3. Belt 4. Dress

Get the trend with subtler stripes too by going for trims and sleeves as well as full on print.

We are so excited for SS15 here at TSOP and one collection that has topped our wishlist has been Another 8 and there perfect SS15 collection!

We were sent these matching floral pieces just before Christmas and couldn't wait to style them up in our own way! I received the floral dress and a pink longline blazer and for this post styled the dress with a white shirt underneath to give it a premium feel. My pink H&M uber fluffy coat worked perfectly with the pink and made it weather appropriate! I accessorised it with a floral necklace and cut out clutch from Boohoo!

We can't wait to see all the SS15 collections drop on the high street over the next few months, what ones are you loving so far?

New season collections are coming thick and fast and one of my favourite brands have got it spot on again. Another 8 London were one of my great finds of 2014 and their urban East London designs are always exciting and yet so easy to wear day-to-day, exactly how I like my fashion.

Another 8's graffiti floral print has that hint of Henry Holland but with a much more modern edge to it. I am loving anything bright at the moment to cheer up dreary January but keeping it parred down with pastels and a longline tailored boyfriend coat (which I managed to bag insanely cheap on ebay!) This is pretty much my go to outfit template for the upcoming transitional period!

Purple Rain - Naomi

 Beyond Retro Purple Button Front Dress
c/o Boohoo Fur Stole, 
ASOS Choker, Clutch & Paisley Flares

As you all know by now I am a massive fan of anything paisley! I brought this button down dress from Beyond Retro a few months ago and have worn it in every way possible, buttoned up, buttoned down, layered under and over as I just love the vivid colours and pattern!

I went for clashing paisley prints and teamed it with my ASOS paisley flares which I thought worked well with the longer length dress open, I wore them with my Glamorous cut out square fringed jumper from Glamorous which has become front of my wardrobe at the moment and goes with everything!

I went for bold accessories with this look using my ASOS embellished floral clutch for a bit of sparkle and my white fur stole from Boohoo to keep me warm, I shot this in Ireland this weekend and it was freezing, so excuse me looking not so happy! 

How are you guys wearing paisley this season? I can't wait to rock more over SS15!

Boho is back. If there is any decade that is heavily influencing the upcoming season it is the 70's and before you know it, itll be everywhere. There is definitely one of us who is more excited by this prospect but I love pulling the seasons influences and mixing them into my own style and wardrobe - that's what fashion's all about right?

It's funny when you spot something you wouldn't usually go for automatically but completely fall in love with it and that is exactly what happened with this dress! The colours and shape are just gorgeous and I am glad I took the risk. To let the dress stand out, I opted for monochrome layers for this look - most importantly a signature white collar/black rip knee jeans to keep it as 'me' as possible!

I finished off with these incredddibbblleeee loafers from Topshop which are probably the best sale find I have ever, ever had! They fit the tone of this look perfectly and the silver buckles add that bit of extra interest to the look

Have you spotted any 70's boho bits to start building your ss15 wardrobe around? We can guarantee that this trend is going to be huge.
