Trending Slip Dress

Hi gorgeous,

Firstly and foremost, let me start by wishing you all a Happy New Year! I know it’s mid February now but I don’t think it’s ever late for New Year greetings. ha

Finally putting up a blog post after what seems to be a long hiatus.

In the spirit of the ongoing V day celebration, I thought I should write about one of the current trending looks I am absolutely loving and also suitable for this occasion! Can you guess what it is?

That’s right Hun, I am talking about the Slip Dresses. If you ask me to choose a look every girl needs in her wardrobe, I think Slip Dresses will be at the top of my list and why not, they are easy to put on, you can wear them as it is or add a little cute top inside it. It’s so versatile as you can wear it either as a day or evening look. OK, not to get to carried away, here are my top 5 slip dresses and where to shop for them.

  1. Your Hiss is My Command Snake Midi Dress

Can I just start by saying the price of this Nastygal dress is everything. 🙌🏽 Ladies where do I start, this dress is perfect for all skin tones, which is the second thing I look for before buying any outfit. The print which is currently trending features a snake print throughout, V-neckline, midi silhouette, and high slits at front. Yes y’all its #hella cute! This dress is currently on sales for €20.40.

2. River Island Black polka dot frill hem slip dress

So by now you can pretty much guess the type of styles and patterns I am attracted to. Am I right!? I was so captivated by the bold polka-dot print on this dress that I instantly pictured myself wearing it. The lightweight woven fabric is perfect for this season. It also has adjustable cami shoulder straps for the obvious reasons. This dress is currently out of stock, however it also comes in beige leopard print color. which is currently in stock and can be bought for the price of €37.

Alright y’all, you know I am into my colors so when I came across this Zara dress, it was the cool color that really captured my attention. I love how it reminds me of summer time. Priced at €29, how can we say no to this dress.

5. Ariana Slip dress REFORMATION

This beautiful velvet dress defines perfection. The dramatic side slit and neckline takes me back to reminiscing about my favorite 90’s chic flick. Priced at €140 it’s not one to mess around with.

So Hun! now you’ve seen my top 5 looks on the trending Slip Dresses, which one of the above dresses would be your favorite?

As part of my late new year resolution, I am going to post at least once a month. If you have any topic you would like me to talk about do let me know.

AW 18 Trending : Snake Print Style

Hi darlings! It’s been about a minute, but I am back now. Hehe

So, I took a long break, vacationing and whatnot. You can check out what I was up to on my insta-page @stephstyleguide. I promise it’s the perfect excuse. 😉

Reverting to today’s topic, #Snakeprintstyle

I initially had no intention of participating in this trend simply because I am not the biggest fan of Reptiles or anything that crawls, but the more I come across the different style patterns being composed out of the prints the more I keep falling for it and can’t stop buying it. (Can you blame me though?)

The good thing about this trend is that like the Summer 18 polka dot trend, it is bound to make a comeback. So, while animal prints slowly fizzle away into something new, you can pack up yours confidently knowing that it shall return someday.

Today’s Look:

I styled this look three ways like I always do.

First look was simply wearing the outfit as it is. The only change made was the belt which came with the jumpsuit, I ended up switching it for a Bumbag from Topshop. Don’t get me wrong, I liked the belt that came with the outfit, but I also wanted to brighten up the look without taking too much attention from it. I paired this look with black heels bought on sales from AKIRA.

Before I continue, can we just appreciate how gorgeous this jumpsuit is guys? It is one of those items you can keep in your wardrobe knowing that next time you wear it, you can create a whole new look with it.

My second look was all about casual styling. Playing with colours, I added a red blazer which I bought from Zara two seasons back to the snake-skin print Jumpsuit. To add a casual feel to this look I dressed it down with Adidas Trainers. What do you think of the casual look?

Being inspired by my first two looks I decided to go a step further by adding the stunning pearl kimono I had gotten from AKIRA summer sales and the same Bumbag I wore earlier. Yes darlings, I am always on the lookout for new bargains and thankfully I always tend to find it somehow. #igotyoucovered #stickwithmebabes

So babes, what do you think of my three looks? Would you have styled it differently or is it perfectly done? If you could style it in a different way, what would it have been?

Shop the look:

Cameo Rose Brown Wrap Jumpsuit – New Look (now on sales) €13

Beige Round Faux Fur Bumbag – Topshop €29

Adidas Superstar Shoes – Office Shoes €56

Matching Set Summer Comeback Trend.

Hello again, I hope you are having a pleasant summer! So, this summer I have been embracing the comeback of matching sets and guys why not? it is a fantastic trend for women who loves to look “fresh and trendy“.

The return of this trend is one of my favourite comebacks. it is very reliable, as in it takes away time spent in the morning when choosing what outfit goes well with what. It is very cost efficient, this trend will save you a lot of money, you can choose to wear each set on its own as many times as you want.

My outfit is from Mango, I initially had my eye on the top but came across the high-waisted trousers and both were on sales and knew I had to have them. It is perfect for all occasion as well as the perfect outfit to take with you when vacationing this summer. Mango sales is still going on as we speak so check it out for some amazing deals!! 😉

Ok, so I have been holding on to these pictures for a while now waiting for the right time to post this look, 4 weeks down the line and I think it is probably about time don’t you think!? ha

Also did anyone else notice how the 70s style is seriously going strong this year! I mean, late last year we saw the return of this style in both Men and Women fashion but this year it looks like it is on another level. In the space of 5 months we have already worn or still wearing flared pants, roll neck sweater, denim, and suede fabric. I am not complaining though, this retro trend is uniquely fashionable, and I am embracing every moment of it.

Back to the look;
I have always wanted flare trousers to add to my collection, but I didn’t know I was going to hit the jackpot when I stumbled upon this stunning 70s styled flared trousers from H&M. All I need now is ‘That ’70s show’ to return and I think I might just fit right in! ha.
Finding the perfect shade to go with this trouser was easy since it was a warm cream colour, so I knew pairing it with vibrant colour such as red would do the job. I paired this trouser with a red sweater top (no longer available) from Topshop, red blazer jacket from Zara and metallic gold shoes from Riverisland.

What do you guys think of this look? would you rock or skip it? if you aren’t feeling the flare in Jeans, H&M also has similar style in Corduroy which I might add is fabulous, do check out the site for amazing SS18 collections.

As always, I decided to style this look two ways. What do you lovelies think of this dressed down look, cute right? although I love my sneakers you never know when wearing the good ol’ heels might be necessary, so I always try to incorporate both footwear to my look. I Simply paired the outfit with my favourite stockings boots from Missguided.
