Another week, another wishlist. This week I am focusing on another one of my favourite stores, Republic. Republic has a diverse amount of brands from Crafted to Miso to Soul Cal, so whenever you’re stuck for something to wear for a particular occasion, Republic can cater for that.
Once again I have created three outfits from some of my favourite Republic pieces. However, this week there was one piece which I could not incorporate in the outfits, but I loved it so much I have decided to let it have its own spotlight here.
The Soul Cal Deluxe Cricket Jumper
Cricket jumpers have become the fore-front of sports-based fashion with cricket tournaments such as Twenty20 highlighted on sports channels such as the prestigious Sky Sports channel or as part of BBC’s sports coverage.
This jumper is a beautiful shade of blue, which teamed with red lipstick, will make your outfit ‘pop’! At £29.99 it is definitely an investment for not only summer but for winter too!
Here are the items from clockwise-round:
Miso Layered Feather Necklace, £4.99 – This week I’m going for a ‘laid back’ look. So for outfit one I thought I should ‘spice’ things up with this feather necklace worn as a hair accessory. Being festival season, feathers are in at the moment – check out the feather headdress from last week’s wishlist! This alone is the perfect accessory for this outfit and compliments the green skinny jeans nicely.
Bench Tricky Birds Top, £19.99 – I love my white print tops, and this Bench birds top is no exception. This top can be worn during the day for the ‘laid back’ look I am trying to achieve here, or it can be dressed up for night time with some black skinny jeans and shoe boots. The one thing which makes this top ‘summery’ is the fact you can tie the ends up and show off that beautiful tummy of yours!
Soul Cal Deluxe Summer Skinny Trousers, £29.99 – Many celebs have been sporting the coloured denim look with style-savvy Fearne Cotton making the most of this trend by wearing blue, red and even pink skinny jeans! So I couldn’t help but feel like I didn’t want to be left out of this cool trend. While most A-List stars are wearing pink coloured jeans – think Victoria Beckham – I decided to wear this trend differently and I have my eye on these cute green skinny jeans!
SALE! Crafted Lace Peep Shoes, £20 – Now not many people suit skinny jeans, so to elongate my short legs I thought I should include these lace peep shoes which are on SALE, onto my wishlist. These complete the outfit perfectly as the fabric colour matches the feather ‘headband’. Perfecto!
Soul Cal Deluxe Vintage Floral Playsuit, £22.99 – I haven’t featured something floral yet, so I thought that it was time to include this big summer trend into outfit two. This vintage floral suit is perfect for the casual day time look. I love this playsuit so much I even bought it! Look out for it in future outfit posts!
Miso Brogue Lace up Shoes, £39.99 – I am a massive brogue fan! Not only are they super-comfortable, they will look amazing with the floral playsuit to complete the ‘vintage’ look! At £39.99, despite being a tad expensive, they are well worth the investment as the autumn/winter 2011/2012 forecasts prove.
Miso Woven Barrel Bag, £29.99 – For this outfit, I wanted to keep the accessories minimal as the floral print looks good by itself without the need for a large amount of accessories. So this brown woven Miso barrel bag is the perfect finishing touch for this look. Not only does it compliment the brogues, it adds to the ‘vintage’ look which I am hoping to achieve. That’s outfit two done!
Crafted Printed Tassel Cropped Top, £19.99 – Tassel tops are big in fashion at the moment! Take Eliza Doolittle, who never fails to amaze me with her quirky style! Sticking to my own personal style of white print tees, I have decided on this grungy-looking Crafted printed tassel top. As Miss Doolittle is sporting denim shorts, I thought I would have my own take on complementing this trend with Soul Cal’s Americana Hotpants.
Soul Cal Deluxe Americana Hotpants, £29.99 – These Hotpants are not only different, but they look amazing with the tassel top – which is great if you want an on-trend outfit for the festival season!
Miso Ram Head Ring, £5.99 – This outfit wouldn’t be complete without a nice silver ring – and you know how I love my rings. This Miso Ram Head ring is no exception, and will complement the outfit perfectly.
Crafted Wedge Sandal, £29.99 – Finally, in order to achieve this festival casual look, I had to include this Crafted Wedge sandal into my look. This look is all about the grunge, and I think that all of these wishlist items achieve that.
Well that is another wishlist complete! Look out for next week’s where I look at the eccentric Student Boutique website for three looks which I am sure you will love!
