The Best of the Eyelet Trend

I’m back with a style edit post and the focus is on the eyelet trend. As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, I generally like this trend however some items can look very tacky so I decided to have a look online to see what’s out there. This was also a good excuse to just sit down and look through hundreds of items just in case I find something that’s totally unrelated but nice.

As always, I didn’t have the time or the desire to check every single high street retailer’s website but I chose the main brands I usually shop with, such as Zara, Mango, Bershka, H&M, Stradivarius, etc. I would say Zara embraced the trend the best therefore about a half of the items I selected to include here are from them.

Just to mention, the item 2 which is a white lace up skirt from Mango does not have eyelets in it however I still wanted to include it as I thought that side detail was quite nice.

Accessory of the Week: Mock Croc

It’s a Sunday which to me means one thing – accessories day!

Today I’ve got a navy blue crocodile effect handbag from Mango. I got quite a few navy blue things recently so there is no surprise that I got drawn to this handbag as well.

I really like its colour which can be easily styled with many other colours and I think the texture of it is very nice also. I am strongly against the use of real animal skins for clothing or accessories but a good fake version is just great. I enjoy mixing different textures and patterns so this handbag is perfect for that because I think a textured handbag is usually much more interesting than a plain one 🙂

I am not particularly crazy about the gold chain strap and I would replace it with a silver coating but that’s just a matter of a personal preference 😀

Today’s outfit is quite simple and not extremely innovative however I do like mixing up different textures together so in here I’ve got velour and velvet. I can’t really tell the difference if you ask me but I am trusting the description on New Look’s website 😀

I have to say I’ve always liked simple sweaters which is a perfect example of sports clothing being accepted as casual wear so I am casually mixing it with a floral skirt and adding a couple of accessories which in the end does not look like sportswear at all.

I like the flowiness of this skirt and it is also very soft. I didn’t really like blue colour too much before but now I’m a big fan of certain shades of it and I think that adding blue accessories or items of clothing to an outfit can really stand out and look very nice.

Oh and excuse my not-so-happy face, I was getting a bit frustrated with something so I am definitely not doing that smiling with my eyes thing here 😀
