Styling Report: 4 looks from Femme Luxe

Femme Luxe are an online brand that I’ve been following for a while and if you like fashion, you will definitely have come across them on Instagram by now. Their Instagram feed is full of gorgeous, bronzed models showcasing their clothing and they are a brand that specialise in affordable sassy outfits. I love how there are a lot of bright colours and prints in their range and they also offer a selection of shoes and accessories so they have everything covered! They stock a selection of loungewear, activewear, basics, a HUGE range of dresses and trend led pieces that are perfect for keeping your wardrobe looking stylish.

I would say that Femme Luxe are an online destination if you are looking for an outfit that is ‘boujee on a budget’ as not only are they reasonably priced, they also offer flash sales and discount offers regularly.

I wanted to give their clothing a try and was kindly gifted 4 pieces from their website to style. I’ve put together different looks with these items and this blog post is to share my thoughts on what I picked out. I will be looking at the quality, the fit,and to test out if Femme Luxe clothing is as good as it looks online. So let’s get into this style report with the first item:

Black Digits, Printed slogan oversized T shirt dress – Adele

I love a t-shirt dress and I’ve been looking for one with long sleeves for ages, so I was excited to try this piece. I went for a size medium which on the website says this is a UK 8-10. I’m usually around a size 10 but think I could have gone down a size with this. That aside, it was meant to be oversized and was still a decent fit. I was impressed with how soft the cotton was and I liked the printed digits on the front.

I styled this dress with heeled sock boots and my Jimmy Choo silver handbag, but it will look equally as good in the day time with chunky trainers and a belt bag or mini rucksack for an effortless, off duty look.

Rose One Shoulder Crop Top – Keeley

The second item I picked out was this cute one shoulder crop top. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about this item but I absolutely loved it and am tempted to get it in a few more colours. They also have this available in several neon shades, animal prints and classic neutrals so there is a good selection to choose from. I have gone for a sports luxe feel and styled this top with some Adidas leggings, Nike air force one trainers and a denim jacket, but dressed it up with a chunky necklace to complete the outfit. This top will look amazing with jeans and boots, or paired with a body con skirt for a glam night out.

Red Basic Leggings – Gracelynn

You can never go wrong with adding basic items into your wardrobe and leggings are a really easy item to throw on at the weekend with a slogan t-shirt in the summer, just as well as with a chunky knit jumper in the Winter months. These are are those ‘go to’ essential items that you will wear all year round and what every girl needs in her wardrobe. I picked out these red leggings as I liked the idea of something a bit different to the usual black/neutral leggings that I would usually wear.

I styled the leggings with a classic white, slightly oversized t shirt with leopard print converse pumps and matching leopard print Jimmy Choo handbag. Overall, I really liked this final look and will love wearing these. I went for a size S/M which the website advises is a UK 8-10. The only other size option is a M/L which would be a 12-14. I would have liked to have seen an in-between size option personally but these fit nicely and they have a bit of stretch to them.

Black Croc Print PU Leggings – Freya

The final item that I picked out were these black croc print, faux leather leggings. These are perfect for putting together a chic and polished look. You can really dress these up with some fabulous heels for either a meetings during the day or cocktails after work. I styled them here with a pair of Jimmy Choo heels and a basic black cashmere top.

I really love the embossed crocodile print effect too which is a nice subtle touch. These have a higher waist which really helps to create a gorgeous slimline silhouette. I went for a UK 12 just incase as I’ve tried similar items in the past and found they tend to run quite small. However, these were the opposite and ideally I should have gone for my actual size. That’s the only thing with online shopping, that it can be a bit of a guessing game on what size to choose.

Final verdict

Overall, I was impressed with the items I picked out from Femme Luxe and will definitely try more items from their range in the future. You can easily pick up an outfit for a reasonable price and there are a lot of outfits that you could put together for a summer holiday. Sizing can be tricky with buying clothing online but most companies have simple exchange or refund policies now so this isn’t really a big deal. My favourite piece that I tried would be the Adele t-shirt dress and I would quite like to try some of the other dresses that they have.

Femme Luxe are adding new pieces to their website regularly so you can keep up to date with all of their latest items HERE.

Baby it’s cold outside! The perfect winter coats that you need this season.

The UK is never known for it’s amazing weather, but in the last couple of weeks it has suddenly turned absolutely freezing! So, it’s time to invest in that perfect winter coat to keep us get through the sub-zero Winter temperatures!

Here are my top tips for finding the perfect coat this season.

1. Shop around

Whether you prefer online shopping or actually buying directly from stores, it’s important to have a good look around at what’s available out there first of all. I personally prefer to try clothes on before I buy them as you never really know what you are going to get with online shopping. Plus I like to have my new items ready to wear straight away! However, there are usually a lot of online flash sales which are good to take advantage of and get yourself a bargain. A lot of stores on the high street now allow you to return items you bought online now which is also really handy. Shop around and get a feel for what you like and it will help you to make your final decision.

2. Choose a classic style 

Heavily printed or bright colour coats will tend to be a ‘fast fashion’ item and you are bound to get sick if it after a short while. These are not always easy to style a full outfit with either. If you stick to a classic colour coat, you will get so much more use out of it and it will be so much easier to wear on a regular basis.

3. Invest

With certain items it’s better to spend slightly more money to make sure you get a better quality, and coats definitely fall under this category. You will be getting a lot of use out of a coat during the Winter and so if you work it out, the cost per wear will end up being value for money in the long run. Cheaper coats tend to not be lined and are made of a thinner material which is to be avoided. After all, the whole point of a coat is that it actually keeps you warm!

4. Pay attention to the fit

When trying on coats, it’s always a good idea to test them out with a couple of different style tops underneath to get an idea of the fit. Check that it does up easily and that you have room to easily move around. Also consider the practicality of the styles you are looking at. A longer length coat is always stylish but if you drive a lot and are in and out of a car all day, it will not be the most practical option. You also need to be able to move your arms easily. This might sound like a funny thing to mention but I have tried coats online before that fit well in the body but have had crazy sleeve lengths. This links back to my point above about investing in a better quality item to try and avoid this sort of issue.
