House of Fraser style challenge



I was contacted this morning by House of Fraser to see if I wanted to take part in their style blogger challenge. I really enjoyed doing the last one on my blog so I jumped at the chance to do another and the bonus is that the winner gets £200 in vouchers. 

All you have to do is go on to their website and put together a look for next season, post it on your blog, talk about why you love the outfit and where you would wear it and leave a comment on the House of Fraser blog (linked here)

So here is my entry inspired by AW 12/13's up and coming oriental trend. 

Top- After seeing a lot of oriental pieces in New York Fashion Week I decided to focus my outfit on one key oriental item. I love the colours in this top and not only is the print elegantly oriental, it also fits in with the winter blooms trend that you will see on a lot of items in A/W collections. Here

Jeans- Leather was the fabric of choice on this seasons catwalks, black being the most popular of shades. I love these imitation leather/wax look skinny jeans. Black skinny jeans are an absolute wardrobe stable. They are a key item that can transform an outfit into a multitude of styles. Here

Blazer- Optical prints are also set to be huge next season, as well as over sized clothing. I absolutely love this blazer. You may think it clashes with the top but I think sometimes clashing prints really works. Go bold or go home!!! Here 

Shoes- I am in love with these Kurt Gieger shoes. The platform sole and block heel make for a really edgy look which is contrasted with the flirty pillarbox red. I also find block heels so much easier to walk in than stilettos, I bet these are super comfy. Here 

Bag- Red is definitely the new Black this autumn. I think this bag really compliments the shoes and I love the subtle delicate lace detailing, its just enough detail to draw some attention to it without taking emphasis away from the gorgeous top. Here 

Bracelet- I love how the red beads in the bracelet look like the red blossom on the top. The jewellery definitely needs to be kept simple with this outfit which is why I went for just a wrist cuff.

I would wear this outfit out to dinner or to a nice bar.

Do you like my outfit?
