Scarlett Fashion’s Best January Bargains Competition Entry

Today I have something different for you all! Recently through my reading of different blogs and Twitter I noticed a new competition that was happening and thought it would be a great one to enter. I thought this competition was perfect for The Savvy Styler because my aim is to show you looks that I love (and hopefully you love) that don’t break the bank! Being a student the first thing I look at when I pick up a piece of clothes etc is the price tag. With this in mind this styling competition was perfect!

What I Wore | Panelled River Island Dress

Here’s a dress I bought just before Christmas, if you follow my blog you might have noticed it in the Christmas Outfit Inspirations post I did a couple of weeks ago. Skater style dresses are something I wear a lot as I think they have such a flattering fit and are very versatile choices. I have too many to count in my wardrobe, weather they are skater style skirts or dresses! I have a little obsession! I love how this one is a little bit different with its tweedy style design and black panelling; it’s quite unique compared with the plain skater style dresses on the highstreet at the moment.

 I wore this dress quite a lot over the Christmas. Here, I have it teamed with my black cape style cardigan/blazer from River Island and plain flat Chelsea boots that I picked up in Penneys/Primark. I also plan on wearing this for nights out paired with black court heels with the legs out and tan on! The collar of the dress has a simple necklace incorporated so you don’t have to worry about what kind of neck pieces you want to wear with it!
I have put together two different looks below teamed around this dress to show you how to create different looks working off one staple piece of clothing! I have gone for a day look you could wear to college, lunch or even shopping and a going out look.

What I Wore | Burgundy Cropped Jumper

Today I’m going up to Dublin to see my Aunty for the day; I opted for a casual look to stay warm in the cold and rainy weather. I’m wearing a cropped burgundy jumper teamed with denim shorts. This jumper is years old, I got it in Penneys/Primark and forgot I had it until only recently! I love the cropped style of it as it is makes it very versatile and easy to wear with denim shorts, skater skirts or dresses. I think cropped jumpers are going to be really big this spring, but they will be in more neutral and pastel colours as opposed to this deep burgundy one. I got my shorts in Pull and Bear back last April for about €30 and they were one of my best summer buys! This summer I was on a J1 in America and I lived in these shorts, I have definitely got the wear out of them. To make them more winter appropriate, today I am wearing them with black opaques. You can’t really see my blouse, it is just a plain sleeveless in a dark forest green, I think it adds something nice to the outfit with the little collar popping out.Read More »

Styling | Spring Preview

Christmas is over, people are going back to work and College will soon be starting up again and everything will be back to normal. With this in mind I thought it would be the perfect time to banish the January blues and get everyone looking forward to the spring. I have compiled below some of the key trends and looks that I think we will be wearing when the weather starts to get a little bit warmer. That could take a while with the weather we have in Ireland! Although, I love warm winter knits and everything in dark colours, I must admit, I am looking forward to putting these pieces to the back of my wardrobe momentarily and replacing them with some pastel shades

Recently, the highstreet has been giving us a sneak peek of their spring preview and so far I am seeing a lot of pastels and a new mono pastel trend, which is a softer take on the ever popular monochrome trend. Denim will also be back in full swing, I love these patterned jeans below from New Look for €29.99. I know I will be resurrecting my old denim shirts and layering them over light pastels and monchromes. The pink structured skater skirt from River Island below is something I hope to be investing in. It will go perfectly with a light cami like the ones featured below or a collared sleeveless shirt. Hope you like my picks from below!
