Remember when I went to a blogger party organized by Vouchercodes.co.uk and Most Wanted? The event was all about swapping unused clothes and making good use of customizing old items, so I was very happy when I received an e-mail asking me to take part in a follow-up blogger styling competition (#swapshopstyling). The idea is to style the items I took home with me from the party with the clothes I already own. I was also given a budget to purchase a little extra to spice up the outfits..so I got something in the bag below :D Unfortunately I did that shopping on the same day the outfit photos above were taken, therefore you will see the Topshop item in one of the next posts.
The item I picked up at the Swap Shop in this post is this biker jacket by Next. It's a size 10 or something so quite baggy, but I found that when I wore it with this huge baggy sweater, it was not only super warm but also went well together. The big black sweater and skinny black jeans are sort of my "signature outfit" when I have no idea what to wear, then I tend to work my way around it by adding accessories and jewelry to make it different each time.
What do you think about my first look, how do you like it? After a few weeks all looks will be entered into a competition where the winning blogger will receive a 200£ Zara giftcard..an absolute dream in a student's life!
Ps. Sorry, I forgot to add the details of my outfit! Jeans - Zara, Jacket - Next, Sweater - c/o Chicwish, Flats - Boohoo, Bag - ASOS.
