Style Icon: Suki Waterhouse

Suki Waterhouse is a successful British model. She firs began modelling when she was 16 and has modelled for M&S, Coast, H&M and most recently the face of Burberry. I think she makes a great model as she looks really endearing but fierce!

Check out a few of the self-confessed tomboy’s pics below for some style inspiration.

ASYMMETRIC MINI SKIRTS

You who have to be a serious hermit to not have noticed that asymmetric skirts are back and they are more popular than ever. I have to admit, I was not initially a fan of their wonky and bold cuts but they have certainly grown on me and I am keen to get myself some!

LOOKS BEST ON: bare legs, girls with smaller hips, with heels

EMPHASIZES YOUR: Legs, legs, legs!

OCCASION: Add a touch of class to a plain outfit e.g. evening dinner or celebration

Why I am very hard to shop with…

I have to admit, I love meeting up with friends for a coffee, to go to a nice restaurant or for a night out but when it comes to shopping I definitely prefer to go alone. This is because when I am shopping I almost go into hunter mode. Like a hunter, hunting for its prey I am a shopaholic hunting for the best items in the shop. For that reason I tend to wander around the shop – I may do a quick scan and then analyse each section specifically or I might dive straight for the make-up section. Generally, I am anything but systematic about how I shop and therefore I find it hard to shop with other people. There. Confession Done.

Anyway I was coincidentally shopping with my friend the other day (not my idea, i was late so I decided not to quarrel) and we were in H&M. Over the years I have generally been put off  H&M i thought the quality was alright but the style was boring and slightly outdated. However when I visited this H&M store a few days ago most of the stuff seemed to be quite good. I spotted a few smart long dresses and this weird sea green and yellow collection that I was seemingly fixated on. However, like most people who going shopping post-Christmas/New Years my friend was all about the Sales. Sidenote -> I have noticed that recently I can’t really be asked for the Sale section because it is always:

1) messy

2) cramped

3) hard to find your size and hard to restrain yourself from buying stuff just because its cheap

3) generally unpleasant

This is also why I don’t particularly like shopping in TK Maxx. So I kind of gave up trying to shop for myself that day and casually followed her around as we chatted away.

Fashion Celebrity of the Moment

Love her or hate her, she has been everywhere this year.

My celebrity of the moment is none other than MILEY CYRUS.

I am also loving her new single Feelin myself with Will.I.AM, wiz khalifa & french montana. Very catchy!

– WORDS TO DESCRIBE HER: clothing-averse, twerker, flasher, bangerz, fashion icon

– Joke about miley cyrus: What does Miley Cyrus eat for Christmas? (Answer at the bottom of the post)

Here are some recent pictures of the cool cat!

TOP OF THE CROPS

It wouldn’t take a wise guy to realise that crop tops have been very popular this Spring/Summer. I love how they add a sense of provocativeness with the slight glimpse of a lady’s midriff without her being seen as ‘baring it all’.

Here are some of my favourites worn by celebrities.

 

 

ANKARA

This was my first time experimenting with Ankara. This does not refer to the capital of Turkey but instead Ankara is a specific type of material, particularly used in Africa. It was fun but I didn’t have many tools (must get my sewing machine working).
