A/W LOOKBOOOK - LIGHTINTHEBOX CLOTHING HAUL

Light in the Box were kind enough to send me some pieces of clothing to style, so here are my current go to outfits I've been wearing for autumn/winter. I styled three day-time chic outfits that can easily be layered up for colder destinations. 

Review

Light in the Box is a great website for very affordable clothing, the pieces were actually decent quality, although there were some loose threads on the embroidered top but I've had a similar quality for that type of clothing from shops like H&M and Topshop. They were all true-to-size, I got all of the items in a medium, and they had a lot of stylish pieces. However it did take a while to find some good pieces as a lot weren't my style. Delivery was also pretty quick which is great as some asian clothing websites can take a while to ship to the UK.

ZAFUL HAUL - AUTUMN 2017

In one of my recent posts I showed some of my top picks for Zaful, the online clothing retailer that everyone is talking about because of their seriously up-to-date styles and affordable prices. Zaful were kind enough to send a couple items to me to review and style in an outfit post for autumn weather.

Review

I opted for this gorgeous blue-grey bodycon dress that looked so flattering on the site and a baby pink silk cami that I imagined would go perfectly with mom jeans. So what's the verdict? I am quite the fan of Zaful's clothing, they arrived how I imagined, fit perfectly (although the sizing on the website can be one-size only) and the items are reasonably well made. Whilst the quality wasn't perfect (a few lose threads), I didn't expect it to be faultless especially for the price. Pricing is quite confusing on the site as it changes so regularly, when I wrote about this dress in a previous post it was priced at £11.86, but while writing this it is priced at £12.94 which is a bit weird. Overall, I am pretty happy with the items I received because for the price, they look really good.

Outfit 1

When styling this outfit, I stuck to cool tone colours to match the blue-grey tones of this dress. I kept the outfit simple with an oversized linen shirt from Topshop (I got it a while ago so its not in stock), a basic black clutch from Mango and some black trainers from Nike. It was a warm autumn day and this outfit was perfect, however when it gets colder, I would pair this dress with an oversized duster coat and some thigh-high boots.







Outfit 2

This silk cami is such a cute piece that's perfect for summer but also suitable for layering in the colder months. I wore high waisted jeans from Topshop for coverage and threw on this vintage cardigan for warmth.

THIS SEASON STYLE: JUMPSUITS

A wardrobe essential that has survived decades of trends and styles, yet has also evolved is the classic jumpsuit. This post is about how you can find your way amongst all the diversity and still look stylish in this late summer season.

For this khaki jumpsuit from Gap (similar styles here and here) I chose to keep it really raw with no jewellery and no shoes to match the beachy setting. The shape of this jumpsuit gives a really androgynous vibe which suits the lack of accessorising.
The second jumpsuit I loved because it matched the colour of the setting sky. The flowy legs and crochet detailing on the front make this a cute and unique jumpsuit (similar styles herehere and here)
