Welcome to our new feature, What’s My Style? where we ask one of YOU, our Muse TV members, to talk us through your very own style. A chance to get to know your fellow Musers!
Thanks to Rebecca Waters for being our first style star. Here’s what she told us…
“When you look at me, in my wardrobe or in my shoe closet you probably wouldn’t think I own anything uber special. I’m not wacky, I’m not 100% individual or unique and half the time I’m not overly creative, so when asked about my style I was like ‘Ummmmm, that’s a tricky one.’
One thing I can say though is I’m not really a brand baby. The majority of my clothes are from high street stores like New Look, H&M, Primark, Top Shop and Debenhams and I love wearing affordable clothes. Mixing a Primark top with a New Look skirt is pretty much a daily occurrence for me, and with the rate in how quickly fashion changes, if I bought high end every time, I’d be the poorest person ever. Literally.
After being a Uni student for three years and now working in a low-paid job (tell me about it, thanks a lot degree & uni debts!) I can’t afford to be all ‘flash the cash’ BUT I can definitely dress my self to make me feel stylish, happy and most of all confident.
So what are some of my key fashion pieces to get me through the working week and of course the fun that is weekends?
JEANS: I used to hate jeans as I could never find pairs which fitted me well, until one day I looked through my mum’s catalogue book (OLD SCHOOL) and found a brand called Confident Curves. I bought their high waisted skinnies and they fitted like a dream. I’ve had them for about two years now and they are slowly dying , I need to repurchase, but due to me loosing a stone they are also a bit baggy. Jeans are a wardrobe MUST HAVE!
CAMIS: are perfect for the summer sunshine or layering underneath jumpers and cardigans in the autumn/winter. I love the light chiffon ones and these can also be dressed up or styled down. Accessorise them right with a bit of fun costume jewellery and heels and your date night outfit is made! With jeans and Converse you’ve got that day to day, gorgeous and flawless look we all want (and I most definitely need).
LOW TOP CONVERSE: Yep I’ve spoken about them twice already, but I honestly believe we all need a pair of these. They’re more stylish than trainers and look good with everything. Whether you want preppy, girly or geek chic, Converse can make that happen. My fave outfit with them has to be black leggings, long black top (COVER THE BUM) or a dress, a denim shirt, I wear this a lot when I want to be comfy, look casual but also stylish, and have to run errands, go shopping or just out for a walk. Love them. I have them in navy (nice alternative to black) and pink (as I love pink so why not have pink shoes?)
PRETTY TEA DRESSES: I live in these at work and love them all year round. Comfy patterned tea dresses just make me feel happy and girly. Wear with leggings or naked legs and they look really pretty. Rock them up with a leather jacket or throw on a pretty jacket for an ultra feminine look. Boots, heels, flats, whatever… they’re so pretty.
So there you have it everyone, some of my favourite essential pieces which you can wear pretty much all year round, and they’re all great for transition pieces as we’re going from summer to autumn at the moment.
I’m currently on the hunt for my 2013 winter coat (after buying my boyf a lush Superdry one for Christmas- yep I’m that prepared, although he chose it), so if anyone has any suggestions, do let me know!
