How I would style: PopBasic Sherwood Micro Collection

Saturday, 18 May 2013

After reading Hayerlily's post about Popbasic's Sherwood Micro Collection which is due to be released soon, I was inspired to head over to Polyvore and have a go at styling the pieces myself!

The first look I came up was based around the Grey Marl T-shirt. As the piece itself is quite simple, I didn't want to make the overall look too busy and detract attention away from the t-shirt, so I stuck to a fairly neutral colour scheme of greys and blacks, with a subtle pop of colour in the form of Rimmel's Lycra Pro nail polish (which is now called Salon Pro) in Peppermint, which is a lovely muted mint colour, perfect for spring.
I paired the shirt with these DIESEL leather jeans, as I felt their texture would contrast well with the t-shirt's marl pattern and would add a bit of an edge to the outfit. The studded Zara bag also brings a bit of toughness to the look.
I kept the jewellery very simple with this Dogeared Karma necklace, and I added the slouchy American Vintage cardigan to contrast with the tight leather jeans and create a more interesting silhouette, as well as to prepare for the unpredictable British spring weather. I was unsure about what sort of shoe to add to this, but in the end I settled for a pair of simple Nelly loafers as they make the outfit a little more casual and they match the comfy feel of the cardigan.
This look would be ideal for a lunch date or a day out.

The second look I came up with was based around the Emerald Green Maxi Skirt and the Gwyn Collar Necklace. This look is a more suited for the warmer months and is a little more dressy, making it ideal for those summer evenings.
Again I kept things fairly simple, which is very important when you're working with a piece as beautiful and intricate as the Gwyn Collar Necklace.
I opted for a plain H&M white tank on top which I would tuck loosely into the skirt to create a nice, relaxed silhouette. The baggy top and flowy skirt will not only look effortlessly stylish, but they will  keep you cool when the weather gets warmer.
I chose the tan sandals and Fatface bag as they compliment the colour of the skirt perfectly, and they keep the outfit looking summery and light.
I am a die hard lover of bracelets and rings, but as the collar necklace is so striking, I felt that adding more jewellery would be an overload, so I decided to let the necklace do all the talking.
