How to find your style and stick to it

Believe me when I say I've spent many years wondering who I am, what I like and who I am supposed to be but I don't think I ever really had ALL the answers. I mean, does anyone? 

That being said, as I have grown older I've never felt more comfortable in who I am and what I like than now. When you're younger, it's exciting to try as many fashion styles as possible and experiment but over the years I've developed my taste to know what suits my body and what I like best. I no longer waste money on fads and trends that I'll never wear again. Instead I opt for timeless pieces and before buying, I'll always ask myself: "would Evie in five years time wear this?" If the answer is no absolutely not, then the hanger gently goes back on the shelf. Now I know that thinking far into the future is sometimes a daunting prospect but in this instance, it prevents me from investing in pieces that I simply will not love for years to come. For me, that's worth letting my mind wonder forward for.

How to find your style

Think about your wardrobe. What pieces spark the most joy for you? For me, these are my fluttery floral dresses, my elegant Coach Tabby black handbag and my fierce houndstooth print blazer. Have you got some pieces in mind? Great! Now let's break those pieces down into colour, prints and styles. For me, it's clear from my love of floral dresses that I adore soft pastel tones, nature inspired prints and elegant, flattering fits. From my love of my houndstooth print blazer and black handbag, it's clear I am equally a big fan of power dressing garments, neutral and monochrome colour palettes and pieces that hold a little structure.

When I'm stuck for things to wear or buy, I'll keep a mental note in my mind of brands within my typical budget that I always end up looking to for inspiration and newness. That way, when I'm in need of a new outfit, I can almost rely on at least one of those brands pull something out the bag that I'd be interested in wearing. To name drop a few: Zara, H&M, Mango and Oasis have all been sending my bank balance in a spin lately so I'd likely search their new in collections down first before anything else.

When it comes to finding your style, over time it may alter and change - of course it will! But I do believe that we can easily create a little more consistency in our wardrobe just as much as we do in our day-to-day routines with defining our go-to looks. If you're feeling a bit meh, lost or confused about your own fashion style (we've all been there!) try the above to help you define your main style pillars and go from there.

Must Have Accessories For Autumn

must have accessories

With a love for fashion so strong, it's no surprise that I'll often find myself swooning over dainty jewellery or luxurious handbags. Accessories are often what tie a look together. They're the finishing touch and in Autumn, it's no different. There's something so lovely about layering clothing and accessories during the darker, colder months. From soft scarves and fedora hats to sparkling jewels and hair ties, here's some must have accessories that I'll be raving about this Autumn.

Pearls are a trend which have seen ins and outs over the years, but will they ever truly go away? I don't think so. For me, they're back in this season and bringing sheer elegance to any outfit. Available in an array of colours, my personal top choices usually always come back to classic white or sophisticated silver. Stud earrings with metal hardware and minimalist pendants add a modern minimalist twist to this all time classic trend.

fedora hat


Providing shade and shelter, the fedora hat is a good choice for the season with sunny showers and crispy leaves. Fedora hats are both a contemporary and a traditional fashion favourite. I like to style mine fairly casually with a big comfy coat and a polished pair of black boots for an all round country inspired look.

hair accessories


Hair ties aren't just for two year olds! In fact, they're a hot topic this season with options growing and growing. From the simple slide to the organza extravaganza, hair ties are becoming the new headband. I'm a fan of keeping it simple and creative so I'll often use branded ribbon, like Dior, to give my up-do the oomph it deserves. However, there are also beautiful hair ribbons available to order from our high street favourites which too make the perfect finishing touch.

face covering


It's the accessory that literally everyone is wearing and if they're not, they should be. After the year we've had so far, the face mask is certainly a must have accessory. I'm not the person to be writing about the science behind it so I'll stick to style. There's plenty of style now that the buyers and designers at our favourite brands have worked their magic! From patterned prints to bold colour choices, even without your smile on show, you can still express an element of your personality. Personally, I'm a fan of pastel colours and floral prints, which some might say represent my introverted but caring personality.

15 Ways to Wear Florals This Autumn

floral dress

As summer has met September, I've been considering how my current wardrobe can now transition from Summer into Autumn. This year I've embraced floral prints more than ever and I for one think its about time that we challenge the assumption that florals are just for Spring.

If like me, you're thinking of that 'Devil Wears Prada' quote that put me off wearing florals in my teenage years, I'm here to prove to you that yes, florals really are "groundbreaking". Here's 15 ways to wear florals this Autumn.


At calf length, midi dresses are perfect for Autumn and can be worn with tights or without thanks to their comfortable length. Below I've partnered some of my favourite new season midi dresses with high rise black leather boots and an oversized straw tote bag to add an extension to the Autumnal colour palette.

If you wanted to enhance your silhouette on a looser fit dress, try adding a thick waist belt like the one I have linked below to pull you in at the waist.


Offering ankle length coverage and being easily layer-able, the maxi dress is ideal for Autumn when you want to feel confident and comfortable. You can easily partner a maxi dress with ankle boots and a fine knit cardigan for cooler temperatures or even make it more of a statement with a seasonal fedora hat.


Knitted or woven, the floral skirt is a lovely piece for your wardrobe. You can dress it up or down depending on your day. My go to choice for styling a floral skirt this Autumn would be to keep it chic with an all black colour palette, a high ankle Chelsea boot and a sophisticated structured handbag.


For a more casual dress code, you may opt for a pretty floral top. You could choose to dress it up with a chic pair of tailored trousers and a pair of heels, or instead style it for a daytime look as I have below.


Floral prints aren't just for clothes! I adore intricate gold jewellery with floral themes; luxurious handbags that offer a bohemian edge; and hair accessories that tie a look together beautifully. Here are some of my current season picks.

The Outfit Inspired By the 90s

90s style

Nothing screams 90s fashion like a fitted shirt and a tan shoulder bag. As a 90s baby, I felt naturally at home with this look. It's totally Monica Geller from F.R.I.E.N.D.S and I absolutely love it. You'll often find me swamped in oversized jumpers, so it was a refreshing change to wear something a little more tailored and flatteringly pinched in at the waist. As for the tan handbag, I adore the rectangular shape and the ease of flinging it over the shoulder for a chic look, whilst only carrying your bare essentials. 

Now all I need are some cat eye sunglasses and Sex and the City on VHS.

How I Style the Printed Blouse

The printed blouse - normally it's an item of clothing that lots of us would shy away from, but with the right styling, there is no reason to be scared. When I saw this monochrome animal print blouse pictured online, I couldn't shut down my computer without putting in a cheeky little order. With a high neck and ruffled sleeves, this blouse is the perfect example of an item that could be  easily styled as casual or workwear. With this look, I've opted for an in between with the classic (nobody knows what it means) smart casual.

I would suggest to pair any bold prints with one similar colour for a full outfit. Here, I have picked out black as a core colour choice, wearing it with my black skinny jeans, black faux leather jacket and black biker boots. Partnering the printed top with a solid colour will draw more attention to the pattern, and avoid any clashing print partnerships.

The Winter Coat I'm Loving This A/W19

 My number one priority at the moment is keeping warm whilst out and about in the cold temperatures with numerous layers. That being said, I don't want to sacrifice on style either, and that's where my new teddy bear coat comes in.

It's the coat that everyone has been loving! I realise I'm perhaps slightly late to jump on the bandwagon, but this is a trend that I have been considering for a while. Teddy bear coats are one of the easiest coats to throw on when you're rushing out of the door, knowing that you will still look well 'put-together' and not feel a chill either. As I'm not much of a skirt wearer currently (especially during this season), I have opted for an all black outfit to contrast with my cream coloured coat. It's simple but chic, and perfect for an every day casual look. To jazz up the outfit, I've accessorised by adding a baker boy hat to accompany my coat. Despite moaning about the cold and darker evenings 99% of the time, I do adore bringing out my big warm coats and stylish hat collection when the time comes around. Winter fashion - it's a YES from me!
