One of the most exciting looks I have done in a while and a trend that makes me super excited for A/W! The 'This Is England' styling that has hit down on the high street has got everyone excited for tartan, leopard print, bomber jackets, leather and crisp white shirts.
The preppy clean styling which is often sported by Alexa Chung and has been heavily featured in style magazine and by bloggers it's a look that is here to stay and a great transitional trend to start wearing now. Keep layers simple with white shirts and bomber jackets but for the colder months gear towards parkas, boyfriend style check coats and crombie jackets.
The great thing about the 'This Is England' style dressing is it can be dressed up or dressed down and can be worn by everyone even if you are not that into following the trends. For a dressed up look choose a white shirt, black pvc skirt and khaki bomber and for a dressed down look go for a checker shirt, high waisted jean and leather jacket. Whatever your style you can definitely buy into this trend even if it's just a bomber jacket or piece of check for A/W.
We are going to do a few posts over the next few months on this trend as there are so many different takes and wonderful outfit opportunities (Amy and myself are big fans!) so I will show you how to wear a more casual TIE look. For this look I wore a wonderful tartan pinafore from Boohoo which is a great addition to my winter wardrobe and it looks bang on trend without trying hard. I wore it dressed up with a crisp white shirt underneath but it would also look great with a jersey and a bomber for a more casual cool look. I love this trend because it's acceptable if not encouraged to mix tartan and leopard print so I wore a leopard print blazer over my shoulders which is also from Boohoo. The accessories I kept to a minimum but still statement, my Aggro boots from Topshop which I am absolutely in LOVE with and now also come in a holographic leather. I chose a envelope black clutch from Boohoo and my favourite thing of the look my Wildfox Sunnies which are so quirky and really bring the look together and make it 'Naomi'
This outfit is quite loud yet still premium and I think it's a great trend to wear to work/an event where you want to look smart and on trend. Keep your eyes peeled over the next few weeks for more TIE posts.... Exciting!
