The lovely marketing team at boohoo.com were kind enough to send me over some pieces from their "Pretty Preppy" collection for a styling video. As promised, I've included pictures and pricing in this post!
These Lita-style boots are so gorgeous, and give both outfits an edge. Taupe is a very easy colour to work with, and isn't as harsh as black or brighter colours. Very comfortable, and seriously gorgeous!
These trousers are very soft; they're 95% cotton, and the 5% elastane gives them a bit of stretch, so they fit to your body. They're high waisted as well, so very flattering on those who don't have a washboard stomach [myself included!]. They're cropped at the ankles, but not too high - just enough to leave a small gap between the Perry boots and the hems. The colour has a military feel to it; they would look great with a black leather jacket.
Paired with the mocha trousers, this blouse is just the right cut. It isn't too short, nor too tight. It's floaty, and has these beautiful billowing sleeves that taper in at the wrists. The coral adds a fresh pop of colour to the outfit, and keeps it from looking too bland. Did I forget to mention how flattering the trousers are on the derriére?!
This Jacket has that classic "Chanel" feel to it. It's so chic, and would look fantastic with an LBD, or if you want to incorporate it into a modern outfit, worn with black city shorts and a peter pan collared white shirt. The chain trim is a lovely touch, and is an accessory unto itself. It doesn't come up too short on the hem or the sleeves, which is a definite plus!
All in all, I absolutely adore each piece - they're really good quality, and the prices are really reasonable. Let me know what you guys think! Huge thanks to boohoo.com for everything, i'm over the moon :)
Also, you can see each piece "in action" in my video below! Enjoy!
