ITS Loves...wrap blouses

this post was written for http://ithestylist.co.uk

Shirts and blouses are given an extra feminine dimension with a wrap. Curves are emphasized when the wrap is tied on the waist and a flash of back or decolletage revealed in the drapes of a carefully designed wrap blouse adds a touch of excitement to an otherwise fairly average piece of clothing.  
Wear more voluminous numbers with a pencil skirt or slim trousers to keep proportions in check whilst a kimono style wrap nipped in at the waist looks amazing with flared jeans.

ITS Loves....Co-ords

this post was written for http://ithestylist.co.uk

Co-ords. Twin sets. Matchy-matcheys. Whatever you want to call them, the joy of a co-ordinated top and bottom set should not just be reserved for pyjamas, fancy underwear  and tracksuits. No siree. These days there is a co-ord for every occasion.  Not suits. They are in a bracket of their own.  But complimentary separates that make a big impact when worn together to create a singular ‘I got this’ look but that can also hold their own when required.
