Shape Styling: 6 Ways to Wear a Bold Print

London Fashion Week now feels like a distant memory and I’m sure I’m not the only one struggling to keep up with all of the incredible new styles that were showcased on the catwalks – and the price tags! The newest trends make for new problems because it’s always hard to know how to wear it your way… and for your shape. The trend we saw in a lot of the runway was bold prints; an array of bright colours and out-there patterns. We’ve located this gorgeous shirt from Rixo. It’s loud and proud. We’ve styled  it in six different ways to show you how to wear it to suit your body shape!

Having been in love with both fashion and writing since I can remember, being able to write now, and for online readers, is quite literally a dream come true. I like to think that my writing reflects me as a person and shows some of my personality whilst still informing you about what’s on trend and what I’m loving each season. Fashion will constantly fuel me with ideas and inspiration for my writing so if you like what you read, you have the catwalk to thank.
