OOTD – How to Wear the She’s a Lady Trend.

Hi beauties, hope all is well. How are we a month in to the year already?  I’m starting to think this particular post is cursed as every time i’ve come to finish writing it i’ve come down with the flu. In today’s post, I will be showing you how I wear the she’s a lady trend in real life (you can read my catwalk trend report here), that’s practical for everyday from brunch with the girls, dates in the local pub (my fave) shopping and the dreaded school run.

The Trend Behind The outfit

One of this seasons biggest trends on the catwalk was the return of ladylike dressing also known as Bourgeoise. This trend sees the return of A-Line shapes, smart tailoring with soft edges paired with over the top blouses, and capes in nude natural colours. Heritage prints such as checks, boucle or classic animal print. To get the look i chose to wear a classic brown checked mini skirt with brown tortoise shell button detailing, i paired it with a high neck lightweight ribbed knitted jumper in cream. For the jacket i wore a tan trench style cropped jacket which gives me very Jackie O vibes. For the Boots i chose these brown croc print knee-high boots. to complete the look i chose to wear minimal accessories with delicate necklaces and a vintage style bag hat matched my shoes.
