Some of you may remember that we took part in Dorothy Perkins SS14 Style Essentials Campaign (here and here) and we are over the moon to announce that they have asked us back to do their AW14 Campaign too. I most definitely in team AW when it comes to styling, infact the one thing I can't stand in the summer is style, so I was excited to see what Style Essentials we'd be asked to play with.
Firstly, we were asked to style The Shirt - hallelujah, this is probably my signature 'piece' and most definitely a style essential to me, never mind Dorothy Perkins! I eat, sleep and breathe in shirts and have done since my college days, even with my ever changing wardobe, my shirt collection just grows and grows. Clean crisp white collars to a very scary amount of (ex)boyfriend check shirts, I've got it, and I loveee it.
So, it seems I love the shirt so much, I had to wear two. The best thing about shirts are their layering capabilites - under/over, top/bottom, or simply tied round the middle, they do just about everything. I chose to style two very contrasting shirts so layered a delicate cream blouse over a dark patterened button up so they could each stand out against the other. To make the shirt(s) the real focus in this outfit, I chose to go with a simple and staple pair of jeans, a sleeveless mac and black finishing touches.
