|So I thought this week Top of The Shops could have a slight twist to it; instead of talking about individual items I am talking about one Shop.Zara. And why does it get special treatment? Because I think it is doing good!
I have always been a fan of Zara for their designs and quality versus price point. You do need to know what to shop for but generally they always have a few things worth purchasing every time I visit. Of course only when I actually need them! No point buying something I don't actually need and break my own guidelines! Their Join Life collection is growing and their new denim additions and high waist jeans in a few yummy colours are really worth a look. Their t-shirts are still very very fine and not ideal even with a camisole below unless the sheer look is the look you are going for. They would be great popped under a shift dress, but on their own for me they are lacking both structure in the knit and they are a bit bumpy, none of us wants bumps. Our bras and waistbands are good at providing them without adding fabrics on top that make them stand out more! Love their new little bucket bag too and I have featured some of the pieces in this weeks How to Wear It below.
Also on the Easter theme, this week’s How to Wear is about casual looks for that morning stroll, Easter egg hunt or whatever outdoorsy thing you get up to this Sunday. I know we all lead such varied lives so I have put the looks together for three very different people.
The first look is sportswear but as you will know, this attire is no longer restricted to the gym, it is perfectly acceptable for a stroll round the park or up a hill as well as the yoga class, or HIIT training session. The second look I have opted for more feminine touches but keeping it edgy and right up to the minute too. Lastly I have put a classic twist on traditional navy and kept it contemporary with adding a zing of lime green. Read on to learn more about the three looks I have created for you.
