Gucci is dominating the spotlight at the moment with so many covetable items to drool over- THAT Dionysus bag, THOSE horse bit loafers (just to name a few).  However if you want a slice of luxury that won’t break the budget (sort of),  Gucci’s new season statement belt is the perfect solution. It’s such a versatile piece that instantly lifts any outfit.  For extra versatility I bought a size that fits both around my waist and hips- so it can be worn with low slung jeans or high waist skirts.

I couldn’t resist using the 90s as styling inspiration for this belt’s first outing.  I adore layering slinky camisoles over long sleeves as it’s effortless styling that looks great but is also practical.

A belt can be the accessory you need to polish off an outfit and when it’s as good as this one, it can take your look to the next level.

Jumping on that 70s bandwagon

70s fashion is currently in full swing with flares, tan suede, fringe, and bohemian peasants blouses invading stores.  If your clothes err more on the minimal side, 70s fashion may seem too much and too busy. However  there are ways to incorporate this trend subtly in you wardrobe.

Take for example my nod to this trend with a denim mini from Zara.  The a line, button down shape screams 70s, however it is actually a versatile piece that will happily sit along side my other wardrobe usuals. I’m thinking of teaming this skirt with simple tees and sneakers for no fuss summer wear, or slouchy sweaters for cooler days.

I’ve amped up the 70s vibe in this outfit by pairing it with a lace top (throwback to crochet) and a camel coat.

My other tips for injecting this trend into your wardrobe subtly is to focus on the accessories. Perhaps purchase a fringe bag that will dress up a simple outfit, or a pair of of killer platform mules.  Think of items that will able to mix and match with your current items  so you won’t be regretting these purchases later.

Asilio the Label white walls crop top, AG jeans, Kara Backpack, Acne Jensen boots

Lace is something I’ve always loved- on other people. I’ve never been a “girly” dresser and lace is the epitome of pretty.  However I’ve found that paring lace  back with more minimal, urban items creates a look which I’m comfortable wearing. It’s pretty, interesting but not overdone.

Nicholas the label midi skirt, Witchery knit, Hansen and Gretel Clutch, Acne Jensen boots 

We all know a high waisted midi skirt is the perfect match for a crop top.  However  layering a mini dress or longer top over a midi skirt also creates a chic, lean, silhouette.

I’m all about versatility and using different layering ideas to extend the use of items in my wardrobe.

To finish off this outfit, I’m using my new oversized clutch from Hansen and Gretel.  I love  that there is a hand strap across the front, it’s an interesting but also practical addition.
