Spring/Summer is finally here and I couldn't be more excited. I am so over wearing over-sized jumpers and wrapping up in about 10 layers and overheating on my walk to university. When it comes to a new season it's all about finding those hero pieces. When I mean hero pieces I mean the clothes which will get you through the whole season which you can wear in more than just one way.
When I live at home, my first point of call to shop is intu Potteries. If I want to go on a day trip though intu Trafford Centre is only about a 45 minute drive away. I felt so lucky to be part of their latest campaign which is 'The Style Garden'. If you live in Stoke the event is on from April 7th-April 18th and you will be able to see all the latest trends to help you keep your style on point for the upcoming months (you can read all the details about the event here) The event at the Potteries is part of a touring event of all Intu centres which is going on till the end of April.
Some of the latest trends include Imperial Red, Soda Pink, Monochrome, Nauticaluxe and Boho Bandit. When it comes to my personal style I just had to go for the Nauticaluxe trend. Being a fan of all things stripes how could I not? My first stop to find that SS16 Hero Piece was a trip to New Look and I picked up this blue striped jumpsuit and I'm a little bit in love. I've teamed it with a black polo neck and my favourite nike trainers for a casual, teamed down look for a day at University. I'm wearing one of my favourite coats which is from Pretty Little Thing.
This is the sort of outfit I wear when I want to feel stylish but still comfortable and this jumpsuit is perfect for that. If you've been reading my blog a long time you know I love all things which are striped so this is the perfect new addition to my wardrobe.
I didn't have everything I wanted in my university house to complete the whole look to how I wanted to style this jumpsuit but I'll tell you anyway! I'm wearing this jumpsuit with some low heel peep-toe shoes (which I live in as they're so comfortable) and I'd team this outfit with a nude clutch bag and a statement necklace to finish off the look.
What I really love about this jumpsuit is that you can bend over in it (so many jumpsuits these days are so tight!!) and it's so so comfortable. I'm also amazing at how cheap this was as it was only £20. What's great about still being a student is that New Look currently have 20% off for students so I saved a few pennies on this jumpsuit too!
What do you think of this jumpsuit? What is your hero piece this season to wear?
