To those not at Reading and Leeds this weekend, you may be heading to Notting Hill Carnival, a huge event bursting with style influences; and if you’re not into the huge elaborate decorative pieces often seen there, here we’ll show you how to get that carnival look without going over-the-top.

Jewellery is a big-impact method of getting a bold aspect into an outfit, with statement jewellery always bang on trend and just a clip away from adding that wow factor to your day. With high street store New Look currently selling jewellery 2 for the price of 1, the jewellery ranges from simple stud earrings to the statement pieces included in the carnival style set, oversized earrings and necklaces going together to create a boom on the carnival streets.


Despite the typically forecasted rain, denim shorts with D.I.Y look grunge hints give a floral and feminine bralet added attitude – and then the outfit can go either way! Pair this with hidden heel high tops for the more street style wear (a little more suitable for carnival too) or dress it up by continuing the cutesy appeal with floral wedges; extra height and feminity.

And all these can be grabbed between £4.99 and £80, so you’ve got plenty left over for the carnival celebrations.

If you’re attending Notthing Hill Carnival this bank holiday, what will you be wearing? Would you wear this to carnival? Or will you be wearing this elsewhere? Leave us your comments below!



So, despite the rainy weather propping up here and there in England, I do believe that it is indeed now springtime. With London fashion week just gone, and my obsession with Topshop, I’ve found my favourite bits and bobs that are (sort of) neccesary in your springtime wardrobe.

1. Lipstick in Powder Room: Pastel shade lips were a hit on the catwalk, and the most wearable make-up trend this spring (that is if you don’t fancy wearing blue or orange lips…). With this topshop lipstick pencil fitting snuggly in any purse, this is the perfect lipstick for day to day wear.

2. Pink invert Flippy Skirt: Again from Topshop, this skirt can be worn day or night, office or party. A versatile piece in the hot-trend pastel, and it won’t break the band at £32.

3. Cateye Glasses: Retro working its way into the trend this season with the cateye glasses, New Look do the perfect pair with tinted lenses and tortoiseshell frames.

4. Colour Block Wedges: We’ve had our eyes on these for a while, and despite colour blocking being a little off trend, the coral shades bring it back on trend.

5. Pop Fabric Cigarette Trousers: Cigarette trousers will always be fabulous, and this light shade makes them perfect for a spring day, and the versatility means that you could wear this with floral prints or monochomatic to create a range of different outfits, but one thing is for sure, these cigarette trousers are going to be purchased by all of us.

6. Cutout Shoulder Blouse: Cutout shoulders really made a statement at fashion week, and you can purchase this wonderful simple blouse to get that style yourself. A simple rendition of the classic white blouse, and obviously at Topshop

7. Round Sunglasses: Whenever the sun comes up, where ecstatic that we can bring out our lennon-glasses again.
