Blogger Style: Alex From ‘Fashion Bandit’

Submitted by on Tuesday, 14 September 2010 | No Comment

This week’s Blogger Style feature sees the gorgeous Alex from Fashion Bandit showing off a lovely blue polka dot playsuit, striped shrug and some gorgeous courts. This isn’t the only lovely outfit on Alex’s blog. There are lots and lots of wonderful looks, and what I really like is that she doesn’t really follow the trends, and really plays around piecing things together that I would have never thought of! I also love the fact that she is not afraid to buy clothes from more affordable fashion retailers such as George and Primark, but mixes it all up with Vintage pieces and other High Street haunts for a completely unique look. I should admit that I am in love with her haircut also!

The outfit I’m going to recreate today is from this post where Alex has achieved the perfect amount of ‘clash’ with her prints. Any more and this wouldn’t have worked, but the boldness of both the stripes and the spots, with a striking blue against more neutral tones is a great mix. I also really like how she has paired the playsuit with jeggings, which again, is something I wouldn’t have thought of doing.

To recreate Alex’s look, go for a playsuit with a bold print. I think blue works really well with the denim, so try stick to similar shades. Team with some bleached or stonewashed jeggings and add a fine cardigan or shrug with a thick bold stripe. Try stick to paler tones in neutral shades like Alex has, so not to create too much of a clash, and then add on a big statement necklace. Finish off with some funky kitten heels courts and there you have it!
