Style Theory: Brighten up the weekly grind of food shopping by picking up a few winter treats for yourself. The supermarkets are a great place to buy a couple key seasonal items for your wardrobe without breaking the bank. Sorting through and spotting the ideal pieces is the hardest part so I have had a good scout around and have pulled out my favourite items....
Spotlight on Sainsburys
Here is my selection of key pieces that caught my eye...
Love this skirt - I would pair with a black poloneck, black opaque tights and a pair of black pointed shoes for a 60s look.
|Leopard Print Kilt £20|
This sweater ticks the check trend..
|Red Check Jumper £20|
Looks fab with a contrasting check Sainsburys scarf..
|TU Scarf (in store)|
|Sainsburys Faux Leather Skirt £22 (In Store)|
I tried this on (sorry didn't take a photo) but I was seriously impressed by it, it is full, amazing fabric (faux leather but hangs beautifully), the only reason why I didn't buy it was because it was quite long, so for any taller ladies out there this is one for you..
This bag looks good 'in the flesh' would be a good addition to any wardrobe, wear with all black to add a pop of colour or clash up with camel coat and navy sweater and jeans for a cool, chic look.
|Sainburys Red Bag £20 (also in black)|
Another key accessory for AW14 is a tartan scarf, I bought this one and love it, it is a cheaper version of last years Zara's hit scarf..
|Sainsburys Check Scarf £12|
Starting with a couple of coats that caught my eye...
|Teddy Coat £25|
A fun, very reasonable coat a play on the pink faux fur, super cosy. Style simply like the Pinterest streetstyle photo below..
Add a muted colour scarf..
|Check Scarf £8|
Asda have some good basic jumpers that can be thrown over a pair of skinny jeans or leather leggings..
|V Neck Tunic £16|
|Contrast Sleeve Tunic £16|
Try styling like this...
Style the sweaters with these leather Biker boots..
|Leather Boots £35|
I really like the Graduate Fashion Week collection at Asda for some different looks..these two items are most certainly quirky but add a little (reasonable designer difference to your wardrobe)
|Graduate Fashion Week Patterned Jumper £16|
|Graduate Fashion Week Dress £30|
For a Christmas party this is a very reasonable, very sparkly dress. I tried it on in store, it is a shift shape and would look fab with a pair of black opaques and shoe boots.
|All Over Sequin Dress £25|
Throw a biker jacket over the top to toughen up the look..or wear with a longline grey cardigan to make it look cool and casual.
My round up of Tesco will follow in my next post (their website is not working today so will post when it is back up!)
Are you a supermarket shopper, do you find yourself adding in a few items of clothing in your food shop?
As always I would love to hear your thought and comments, until next time Frances x
