SS15 Looks

Since AW15 has just walked the runway, that means it’s officially time to start wearing your SS15 gear! I had a scout on ASOS to pick out some outfits that reflect this season’s trends.


Fashion is of course extremely cyclical, and so while the late noughties/early tens have favoured the skinniest of jeans, it’s time to revisit the older silhouettes, and this time around it’s boot cut, bell bottom, seventies all around jeans.

£35.00 Noisy May Flared Jeans - Blue

£35.00 Noisy May Flared Jeans - Blue

£29.00 Tiger Mist Petite Young Love Crop

£29.00 Tiger Mist Petite Young Love Crop

I’ve paired these periwinkle blue jeans with a loose lace bardot. The cropped length breaks up the full length of the jeans, and adds some airy summer vibes back into the mix to contrast the deep blue. 

 

£65.00 ALDO Aelalla White Peforated Heeled Shoe Boots

£65.00 ALDO Aelalla White Peforated Heeled Shoe Boots

On the feet we are wearing these perforated peep-toe heels. These are so versatile, and add a little bit of that sporty look we have been seeing this season, too. I would always recommend to wear a heel with bell-bottom jeans, as they can be quite hard to balance, and tend to look better a little oversized and too long, covering half of the heel.

£18.00 ASOS Gold Plated Sterling Silver Arrow Ring

£18.00 ASOS Gold Plated Sterling Silver Arrow Ring

£6.00 ASOS Spike Spine Ring

£6.00 ASOS Spike Spine Ring

£41.00 Bill Skinner Gold Plated Bee Ring

£41.00 Bill Skinner Gold Plated Bee Ring

I’ve arranged a selection of lightweight rings to wear across the fingers. You can easily weigh down an outfit with too much jewellery, so I didn’t want to go overboard.

£5.00 Orelia Mixed Arrow Temporary Tattoo

£5.00 Orelia Mixed Arrow Temporary Tattoo

A final touch, these gilded tattoos. A little more upmarket than the temporary tattoos you had as a child, these foil charms can really accent an outfit for a special occasion. I was thinking about putting some small arrows symmetrically along the collar bones, to add a little bit of metallic balance, without the commitment of a necklace. 


I was very surprised to see how prevalent the combination of the colours red, white, and black, were this season. I guess that means I can carry on wearing what I’ve styled this winter well into the spring and summer too! The colours really remind me of poppies. 

I went for this full, knee length skirt. Again, it’s all about the resurgence in more traditional cuts and lengths. Micro-sized has been the echo of the last 10 years, and so it’s definitely time to mix things up a little bit with longer lengths and silhouettes. 

£18.00 ASOS Crop Top With Halter Neck In Crepe

£18.00 ASOS Crop Top With Halter Neck In Crepe

£45.00 ASOS Premium Bonded Midi Skirt In Colour Block

£45.00 ASOS Premium Bonded Midi Skirt In Colour Block

I paired it with this simple black halter neck crop. Again, the cropped length breaks up the length of the skirt.. but who am I kidding, I just really love a good crop for summer! The black crop balances the black bar of the skirt, and the high neckline compliments the length of the skirt, so the outfit is evenly weighted.

£87.50 Windsor Smith Leon Black Platform Heeled Sandals

£87.50 Windsor Smith Leon Black Platform Heeled Sandals

I chose these chunky black heels because the thick horizontal bars compliment the black bar on the skirt. I’d definitely say wear some red polish on your toes for this look to really top it off!

£85.00 Krystal Swarovski Door Knocker Earrings

£85.00 Krystal Swarovski Door Knocker Earrings

£40.00 Nali Red Stone Elastic Bracelet

£40.00 Nali Red Stone Elastic Bracelet

 

Accessories-wise, I picked out the above. These garnet earrings are more traditional, and definitely would suit a more classic look. I’m not sure if the red of these is too deep for the skirt, so perhaps choose some oxblood accessories to go with these, such a deep lipstick. 

This bracelet is quite busy, but it definitely matches the colour theme of the season. Perhaps think about wearing pearl earrings with this, or a white ribbon in your hair.

£195.00 Love Moschino Leather Quilted Bag in Red

£195.00 Love Moschino Leather Quilted Bag in Red

Finally, this Love Moschino bag is a beautiful cross-body number. The gold hardware is very warm and summery, and would stand out along with the strap in contrast to the black top. 


Sporty vibes are ever-present in SS15, which is filled with varsity stripes and team numbers. I chose this NIKE sport bra as the focal point: name brands are as popular as ever, and sport names are often much more affordable than other designer goods.

£26.00 Nike Pro Victory Logo Bra

£26.00 Nike Pro Victory Logo Bra

£15.00 ASOS High Waisted Stretch Shorts

£15.00 ASOS High Waisted Stretch Shorts

Pairing the top with these non-sport but very short shorts adds a little more fashion into the mix, rather than workout-only vibes. They are high waisted, which should feel more comfortable, as the top is very short on the bottom.

£75.00 Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Mid Trainers

£75.00 Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Mid Trainers

I paired them both with these NIKE high top sneakers. This makes for a comfortable and wearable look, while keeping in with the trends.

 

£38.00 American Apparel Leather Bum Bag in Metallic Pink

£38.00 American Apparel Leather Bum Bag in Metallic Pink

£20.00 Casio F-91WC-4AEF Digital Pink Watch

£20.00 Casio F-91WC-4AEF Digital Pink Watch

This holographic American Apparel bum-bag is what makes the outfit. It provides the pop of colour to the otherwise monochromatic look in a very fun and cute way.

The pink CASIO wristwatch again adds to the colour theme. It has a retro and youthful look, while at the same time adding sophistication.

£4.00 ASOS Soft Spot Hair Scrunchie

£4.00 ASOS Soft Spot Hair Scrunchie

£16.00 Johnny Loves Rosie Eva Three Pack Hairband

£16.00 Johnny Loves Rosie Eva Three Pack Hairband

For hair, we have two options. This pink scrunchie can be worn on the wrist, or in the hair as a ponytail. A messy half-up half-down look would look fantastic with this style. Otherwise, there is this Alice band, which carries a very ‘Clueless’ vibe along with it. Both options are fun, preppy, and youthful.

The focal point of Outfit 4 looks very much ‘hot off the runway’. Alice McCall’s scalloped shorts and top set is elegant and playful. With an elegant satin texture, the summer weather will really make this set look its best.

£130.00 Alice McCall Crop Top with Frills and Scallop Edge £145.00 Alice McCall Shorts with Scallop Edge

£130.00 Alice McCall Crop Top with Frills and Scallop Edge

£145.00 Alice McCall Shorts with Scallop Edge

I’ve paired them with these simple white heels. I felt that chunky heels would make for a better day look, however for evening, I’d switch to something more elegant and satin.

£93.50 Windsor Smith Malibu High Heeled Barely There Sandals

£93.50 Windsor Smith Malibu High Heeled Barely There Sandals

£12.99 New Look Paper Bag Clutch Bag in Pearlised Finish

£12.99 New Look Paper Bag Clutch Bag in Pearlised Finish

This New Look clutch looks as if it was made for this outfit. Made from faux snakeskin, the pearlescent properties compliment the satin texture exactly.

£6.00 River Island Double 3 Pack Farah Cuff Bracelet

£6.00 River Island Double 3 Pack Farah Cuff Bracelet

£5.00 ASOS Open Circle Hair Tie

£5.00 ASOS Open Circle Hair Tie

I’ve added these gold bracelets and this simple gold hair tie. Because the satin is very warm, the gold will accent that perfectly, and add a little bit of glamour, too.

 

£27.00 Quay Invador Cat-Eye Sunglasses

£27.00 Quay Invador Cat-Eye Sunglasses

The whole outfit is topped off with these striking cat-eye glasses. The opaque lenses give a celebrity feel, while the strong shape of the lenses really balance with the chunky strong shoes, and bring the whole outfit to a close.


Have you been following the runway for AW15? My number one rule as always, is to wear what you like! I enjoy looking at the current trends, but the decision of what to wear is always only influenced by the trends, never dictated. 

Let me know what you think! Which is your favourite look? Would you wear any of these?

 

Thank you for now! Until next time,

Beckii

On the 22nd July 2007, I was 12 years old. I created my YouTube channel. Today, on the 22nd February 2015, I'm 19 years old, and my channel has just hit 100,000 subscribers. YouTube has taken me around the world. YouTube has helped me be brave. YouTube has given me the confidence to be creative. YouTube has found me friends from all over the world. I've seen YouTube from its early subculture days, through to the international mainstream success it is now. My content has changed over the years, but people tell me that they've been watching me and growing with me, no matter what content I upload. I can't express properly how much YouTube means to me. 100,000 may not be a lot in 2015, when that's nothing compared to the multimillions that many creators have achieved, but I'm so incredibly proud to reach 6 digits, with the help of all of you. I'm going to make a celebratory video soon! Do you have any ideas of something you'd like to see?

I couldn't have done this without all of you. This is your victory- so thank you for sharing it with me.
