Hello Blush and Bruch readers, I am Naomi and my blog One Heel Forward, centers around fashion, style and beauty trends. I was thrilled when Rachel agreed to let me do a guest post so I hope you all enjoy.
Everybody always says that we should enjoy the small things in life and I believe that the same should be said for clothes. When buying a garment I am always looking at the smaller details as well as ‘the big picture’. I am a huge fan of pieces that have detailing which draws your attention to certain parts or even might go unnoticed but is still there. I am going to share with you a few of my favourite details on clothes I have recently bought.
To begin with the straps on this top from Primark are both completely different, whilst one is relatively thick the other is a thing spaghetti strap. As a person, who is not a fan of one shoulder pieces, I was surprised when I was drawn to this detail but instantly fell in love with it. The pleated waistband is probably my favourite thing about this top, if there is one thing that you should draw attention to it is your waist, as the smallest part of your body, it is the most flattering thing you could point out to someone. The gathering on this top, makes it a bit different and definitely adds something to it. Although it does have all these details, it still somehow retains its simplicity, perfect with jeans and heels on a night out.
As I have said before, and I will probably say it again, lace is definitely one of my favourite trends and as soon as I saw this Limited Collection top half price in M&S I rushed to the cash desk. The contrasting colours of the coral and white, make it really special. I recently wrote a post about transitioning your summer wardrobe into winter, and this top could easily do that when paired with jeans, boots and a jacket.
Exposed zips have quickly multiplied on garments in many high-street shops. I don’t think you can walk into any shop and not see an exposed zip. Whilst I have seen zips which draw a lot more attention, this one still draws attention but does not detract from the main detailing of the waistband cut-out. The cut-out detail on this dress is beautiful and not too much that you couldn’t wear it out in the day. There are many cut-out dresses around which have so many holes that they just look too ‘clubby’ for everyday wear. I love this and once again I can see myself wearing it in Winter, with a nude coloured vest top, a jacket, scarf and tights.
And finally, I recently saw this jacket on a rail and had to have it. I have been looking for a velvet jacket for a while and immediately I knew this was the one. I love the ruched sleeved detailing as it adds further femininity to the fabric. I already plan on wearing this jacket at Christmas with a white lace dress.
