Key Pieces or Statement Pieces?

Do you ever find yourself torn? Like some days I am all wanna be girly, with blush pinks and would buy everything from the Gucci Floral collection, then the next day I am in Docs, denim and leather.
There seems to be no happy medium but I think I may have found the perfect equation to solve this problem.

Statement pieces + statement accessories + key basics = the perfect look every time. 

Statement pieces & Accessories : Shoes, bags, accessories, blouse or jackets. Whatever it may be, you can add them to the most simple look and they will look take it from basic to classic. My floral Gucci does this to any look and already I have got so much wear out of it, so it’s definitely worth the investment. However, you don’t need to invest in all designer pieces. These Dorothy Perkins heels are on sale for £30 and they look great with high waisted skinnies or ripped boyfriend jeans & a white tee. Along with the blush satin bomber, I threw this on in London for a wonder around Regent street with my Levis and white tee and it looked perfect together. 

Key Basics: This is my favourite part, buy the good well fitted basics, you can do them all together for work or weekend but when you feel like it, add those statement pieces and accessories in. I live my day to day life in black skinnies, especially in Autumn Winter in Glasgow, because it rains so much. A loose blouse works well to make them more feminine and then add a statement bomber or leather and it gives it that edge. 

High waisted skinnies and a chic bomber is definitely going to be my AW16 silhouette – for day I’m adding my lace up docs and night, definitely these amazing heels above. I don’t know what it is about Dorothy Perkins heels but for the price I can’t get enough of them lately.
