I can honestly say that this faux leather skirt has been the most worn item in my wardrobe over the last year or two. I’ve worn it for nights out and for more casual days shopping, and if I worked in a place where the dress code was a little more relaxed, I’d wear it then, too. Let me tell you all about the wear-anywhere faux leather skirt.Read more
I’ve never suited hats. I have a really small head and they generally just look ridiculous on me. I’d love to be one of those girls who wear gorgeous beach hats and look super glamorous. But I’m just not. Normally I can get away with a knitted beanie hat if they’re not too big and I fold them up, but that’s it when it comes to headwear. Until now. I’ve been admiring baker boy hats for a few winter seasons now but never even bothered to t4ey them on because, as I said, I don’t suit hats. Here are a few tips on how to wear a baker boy hat when you just don’t suit hats.
A Tonal Outfit
If you’re not used to wearing hats then a big tip from me is to match it to your outfit. If you’re wearing an all-black outfit and then wear a bright red hat on your head, then you’re probably going to feel a bit self-conscious. As I have blonde hair, I decided to go for a light beige/tan baker boy hat. It means it doesn’t contrast against my hair – a black hat would be a little too harsh. It also matches the tone of my favourite teddy coat, too. Pulling the tan and black colours of my outfit together with my leopard print boots gives a cohesive look.
How To Style Your Hair
How you style your hair can also make or break when it comes to how to wear a baker boy hat and look good. I would always wear my hair down with any kind of hat. If my hair is pulled back and I’ve got any type of hat on I feel like I look like a ten-year-old boy. Not exactly what I’m trying to achieve, surprisingly. Hats are great to hide greasy roots, but straightening the ends of your will give a more polish look. If I had longer hair I’d probably wear hats when my hair is curly, too. It’s a little too short for that so I stick to a sleek, straight finish.
My two top tips for how to wear a baker boy hat is to choose a subtle colour which looks good with your winter coat, and to wear your hair down with your hat. Do you wear hats? I’d love to be able to pull off more styles!
In the winter months, a sweater is essential, especially here in the UK. I’ve never been much of a jeans-and-jumper kind of girl, but I like being warm. I have a few tips on how to style up your simple sweater this winter. Let’s all keep warm and snuggly while looking great…Read more
Wearing a midi skirt in Winter can be a bit of a challenge. Yes, they cover most of your legs but generally, they are made from lighter materials so they can quite impractical to wear when it’s freezing outside. You know me though, I love wearing midi skirts. They flatter your waist and the length is perfect, too. I’ve said before that I always thought midi skirts wouldn’t suit me as I am under five foot three. I’m so glad I gave them a chance though as they are now a staple in my wardrobe. Here’s how yo9u can wear your midi skirt in Winter.Read more
We all know I love a bit of leopard print. Gone are the days when the print was thought of as trashy. It has definitely moved into the realm of a classic print.

Wearing tall boots when you’re under five foot three can be tricky. Stores such as ASOS have started stocking petite over the knee boots, but there isn’t a huge range of choice. When you’ve got short legs over the knee boots can sit much higher on your thigh than they are designed to, making your legs look even shorter than they already are. I don’t know about you, but that is the last thing I want in a pair of boots. Tall boots haven’t worked well for me in the past, that’s why I generally go for black ankle boots with tights as they tend to be leg-lengthening. Over the past year or so I’ve picked up some tips on how to wear tall boots when you’re under five foot three.Read more
It seems that with every new season comes a new variation on the 70’s trend. In the summer it tends to be more of a bohemian style – floaty maxi dresses and flobby hats. Along come the summer months and our wardrobes are crying out for knitwear, flared trousers and platform boots. All with a 70’s kick.Read more
Wearing pastels in winter may seem a little out of place. When I think of pastels I think of Spring, not the festive period. I’ve been enjoying wearing pale green these last few weeks so I thought I’d share with you how to style them in the colder months.Read more
The Puff Sleeve trend has really made a comeback over the last few months. Whether that be on dresses, sweaters or tops, they’re everywhere right now. I love the trend, but when you have a small frame like mine they can be difficult to style without looking like an 80’s throwback, or like you’re off to a fancy dress party.Read more
‘Tis the season for teddy coats, but a lot of the styles available at the moment are fairly formal. I still wear mine with more casual outfits, but they would look out of place with super casual outfits such as joggers and hoodies. I’ve found the perfect casual take on the teddy coat for days when you need something warm and snuggly but you still want to wear something relaxed underneath.Read more
