Over the past month I have been adding some pieces to my wardrobe from some of my favourite shops for the coming summer months, and I thought I would share with you what I bought!
- Rose print strappy summer dress – New Look size 16
As a black clothing lover, I forced myself to get some colour into my wardrobe, and I came across this in my local New Look! It’s floaty, loose and shows just enough chest for me, as I hate closing off my cleavage! The rose print isn’t too girly, and adds some nice colour. I love to wear this black tights, and creepers, or white trainers. I can’t remember the price, but I think it was around £12.99 or so.
- Denim short shorts – New Look size 18
Who likes short shorts? I do! So I picked up some new denim shorts from New Look. They are high-waisted and super comfy and an essential for all year round in my eyes! The shorts I picked up are a little too big for me, but I just wear them with a belt and pair them with leggings, or tights underneath and creepers, trainers or flats. These shorts are from the Inspire range of New Look, and are £17.99!
- Black patterned crop top/blouse
This black blouse/crop top was another inpulse buy, but I needed more patterns in my wardrobe! It’s classy, and I could be grungy if paired with my creepers, khaki coat, tights and a black skirt. I really like how I could wear this with anything, and as it’s slightly cropped, I will be wearing this with a black longline vest underneath. I can’t remember the price, but I think it was around £12.99.
- Black mesh cut out dress – Forever21 size XL
I LOVE the black cut out mesh dresses that are around at the moment! They are sexy, suit curves and bang on trend I have a couple of mesh cut out dresses, one being from ASOS, but I spotted this one on Forever21+ and fell in love. They are US sizes, so I think an XL is a 16? It hugs my curves and gives me an hourglass shape, but it is not too risqué! I haven’t worn it out yet, but I plan to wear it with black tights, and black flats, heels or creepers! This dress costs £12 (Bargain!), and also comes in blue/black and red/black.
- Dotted floral crop top – Forever21 size 1X
I’ve never owned a crop top before, because I hate my tummy, but I pushed the boat and bought this beauty! I won’t wear it bare skinned, but I plan to wear it under a sheer top, or over a long vest. I loved the dotted floral pattern, and I think it will add some texture to my other items. I also bought it in one size too big, so that it isn’t too tight, and I like the baggy look. I got this top from Forever21+ section for £6.50 (Another bargain!)
- Black floral crotchet swing top – Asos Curve size 18
So, as most people know, I quite like baring skin, but not going overboard. I spotted this whilst browsing ASOS and instantly fell in love. It bares skin, but you can easily wear something underneath, it’s grungy, and it’s quite classy at the same time. Again, I bought this in a size bigger so that it’s loose on me, and I could slip a top underneath without feeling too tight. I wear this top a lot, and usually wear a black tank top underneath, denim shorts or tights, and creepers or white trainers. It also goes well with my khaki green coat! This top was a little pricey at £42.00, but I used my student discount and got 10% off. Definitely worth the price!
