How To Style…Mom Jeans

Last Spring, I finally plucked up the courage to swap my coveted skinny jeans for Mom jeans and to my surprise, I absolutely loved them. 🙂

There’s no denying the comfort or style factor these jeans have to offer but sometimes it can be hard to work them into your wardrobe in a way that suits your style. 

The thing I love most about Mom jeans is that they suit every height and body shape. I’m 5ft so I really didn’t think they would suit me, hence why I shied away from them for so long. Trust me, if I can pull them off, so can you!

Moody Monday: Red and Pink

Red and pink…a colour combo no longer reserved for just Valentine’s Day. Once considered a fashion faux pas, this power combo is now an insanely stylish pairing popping up everywhere from runways to the red carpet and everywhere else in between.

From classic everyday looks to occasionwear, here are four stylish ways to wear pink and red right now…

I’m a huge fan of wide-leg trousers but I’ve changed the look up a little here because I just adore these tapered pink trousers from ASOS. 

Outfit Three

Outfit Four

This colour block dress would be perfect for a spring or summer wedding. Pair it with pink heels and a pink bag to really make the red pop!

Low Key Utility: The ’90s Trend Making A Major Comeback

One of my favourite ’90s fashion trends is making a comeback this spring and I couldn’t be happier. Think patch pockets, baggy sweatshirts, cargo pants and All Saints circa 1994. 🙂 Oh the memories. 

Military tones are the new neutrals and a crisp palette of dreamy creams and edgy earth tones are set to dominate our wardrobes very soon. 

All-in-one utility suits featured heavily in Hermès, Stella McCartney and Giambattista Valli’s SS19 collections, leaving us in no doubt that ’90s trend was well and truly back.

This versatile, wear-with-anything piece will be your go-to staple for any occasion. Pair with sneakers to keep things casual or statement heels to take the trend to the next level.

Trend Report: The Bomber Jacket

It’s a look that has been around for months now, and as you know, one that we LOVE here at The Style Fairy. Heather and I are always drooling over bombers and as I’m watching new stock arriving daily in the high street shops it’s clear the bomber is a look that is certainly sticking around for Autumn/ Winter (Yaaaaay!)

Trend Alert: Chokers

Hello 1990’s – the Chocker is back!

1219ebaa53fbdaf932982745b4438c77

I am old enough to have worn it first time around, it my teens I lived in those black velvet chokers, but I never thought we’d see them back in fashion so soon. And wow they are a huge trend now. And I have to admit, at first I didn’t like the look, but it’s really growing on me now. As they say, “never say never in fashion” as EVERYTHING comes back into style!

What’s your thoughts… Yay or Nay? 🙂

Summer Dresses

Well, summer is officially upon us! Time to dust off those summer clothes and bare those legs 😉 Last summer I was pregnant so I haven’t really updated my summer wardrobe since the previous year and really feel I am missing casual summer dresses – You know the ones; light, loose, comfy, casual but stylish all the time. A summer dress that you can just pop on with your sandals or flats and layer up with a denim jacket for the evenings. So with this in mind, I’ve been mooching the internet this morning and rounded up my top ten summer dresses in stores now!

Hope you enjoy 🙂

Trend Report: Bomber Jackets

Ladies, let me introduce our guest blogger this month Sorcha Quigley. Sorcha comes with loads of fashion experience and is currently working in the buying department of Dunnes Stores, so when it comes to trends and what’s in for this season, she’s your girl. Her latest post is on one of this season hoist looks (and one of my current obsessions)… Bomber jackets! Enjoy,

Naomi xxx

Trend Report – The Bomber Jacket

Our favourite jacket, the bomber jacket made its big comeback last year but it’s certaintly not going anywhere this Spring! Gracing the Spring Summer 2016 catwalks of designers like Valentino, Dolce & Gabanna and Louis Voitton and also featured on some of our favourite street style icons, this trend has evolved and we are loving it more than ever!!

Bomber Jacket Inspo

Moving away from the dark and bulky jacket we had this winter, the most prominent trends for the bomber jacket this spring are silks, pastels, metallics and embroideries.

Street Style Inspiration – How to wear a bomber jacket

The versatility of this jacket makes it pretty much perfect for every ocassion. To achieve a casual, day-time look the bomber jacket can be paired with your favourite denims and an oversized tee, giving a simplistc, chic look.

d561645343c48e1a1b3dffedc8f04268

For a more glamorous, night-on-the-town look add the bomber jacket to a simple dress and throw on your favourite heels and accesories. I love this jacket over satin or slip dresses. Doing this will add texture and layering to your outfit, adding some instant edge and comtemporary glam!
