Stylight is an online community that allows their members to create 'looks' on boards with clothes, links, your own pictures and even music so you can share it with the Stylight community. Stylight also lets you search and explore over 5000 items of clothing and if you like what you see they conveniently send you through to a site where you can then purchase it. I'd describe Stylight as the highly addictive love child of Lookbook, Pinterest and ASOS.
Judy sent me some links of brands and the one that caught my eye straight away was Filippa K, a Swedish company that specialise in sleek and simple but luxurious clothes. Their core values are 'Style, Simplicity and Quality', something I wholeheartedly agree with because I've said before that I'm a fan of simple pieces that I can accessories and wear again and again in different ways. So here is my take on some of my favourite Filipa K pieces:
Dress: H&M. Shoes: Topshop (sale). Necklace: Primark
Top: New Look. Shirt (worn under top): Topshop. Jeans: Topshop (Joni). Shoes: Topshop. Necklace: Miss Selfridge.
Outfit number two is inspired by Filippa's love of skinny black trousers and the only kind of pattern you'll find in her collection: STRIPES. Being 4ft11 I can really appreciate the ease of black trousers and how easy they are to work with. Stripes are a classic for me and my all time favourite, in Filippa's collections they are mainly found in the menswear section. I frequently shop for my beloved breton tops in the boys section, the cuts are better and more flattering. Striped shirts are a godsend, they are so easy to dress up or down, perfect for layering with shirts and jewellery The options are endless. I'd say about a third of my wardrobe is stripes, you can never have enough in my eyes!
Shirt: Promode (super old). Jeans: Topshop (Joni). Shoes: Topshop. Hat: H&M.
Outfit number three is once again inspired by the menswear section and their gorgeous shirts they have, especially the blue ones. I love denim shirts and how easy they are to wear, you can button them all the way up or just wear them as a jacket. As I've said before I'm a big believer in shopping in the mens wear section, it's cheaper and the fit is perfect if you like things looser. I'm also quite a fan of the 'Canadian Tuxedo' - when you wear a denim jacket with matching jeans. You can take a kid out of the 90s...
Shirt: H&M. Jeans: Topshop (Joni). Shoes: Logan Crossing
