The Colourful Mac Style Challenge With M&S.

I've begun to realise how important it is to have a good selection of outerwear to choose from. Living in a country that is cold most of the year, I'm almost always bundled in some form of coat when i leave my house, and since i'm always in a coat, why not wear a statement one? I've worked with Marks and Spencer twice before on some collaborations here, and here, and the latter has actually become the most clicked post on my blog EVER! So you can imagine my excitement when they asked to work with me again on styling up one of their very colourful rain mac's. It took me quite a long time to decide which colour to go for and for some reason i was drawn to the orange one as it was between a burnt autumnal orange and a neon orange, and the colour was just so warm and bright that i knew it had to be my starting piece. To see how i've styled my chosen mac, click after the break as it's a long-un!


OUTFIT 1
MAC* - M&S
TURTLE NECK* - M&S
SKIRT* - M&S
SHOES - OFFICE

OUTFIT 2
MAC* - M&S
JUMPER - ZARA
TROUSERS* - M&S
BOOTS* - OASIS

OUTFIT 3
MAC* - M&S
BRETON TEE - BERSKHA
JEANS* - OASIS
LOAFERS - NEW LOOK


It's difficult to write up 'tips' on exactly how to style an outfit as everyone is so different, but i thought i'd put together three types of looks to cater to most people. One very femme, one very colourful, and one everyday! I think my favourite has to be the 'colourful' one because of all the lovely shades of red, oranges and browns, they make me think of autumnal leaves and the crispness of the colder weather. If you're scared of wearing brighter colours, try dressing it down with a pair of ripped jeans, comfortable loafers and your favourite off-duty tee. Although i'm nowhere near as good at putting together colourful clothes as Kristabel or Helena , but with a jacket so colourful, you can't blame a girl for trying eh?!

Let me know which was your favourite below and as always I hope you've had a wonderful weekend! x

  2. My favourite is number three although I love the skirt in number one, and your hair looks amazing! I think you've done posts on your hair before, but I'd love to see another one.

  15. This is absolutely beautiful! I always end up wearing dark clothes in Winter... it feels like the right thing to wear when you're feeling cold and blue, doesn't it? I need to get myself a colourful jacket ASAP!
