My best style advice is to buy ‘basics’ as they are so easy to wear in different ways and also, they are just really useful in general! I would also recommend only buying clothes that you can envision in an outfit. My biggest style mistake is buying items of clothing without thinking about how I can wear them or where I can wear them. If you want to get thirty+ wears out of your clothes it is important to know how you’ll style them!
I love Selena Gomez and Bella Hadid’s styles. I like minimalist clothes and think these two are very successful at pulling off brilliant minimalistic outfits which look sophisticated and chic!
Why I picked this Jacket to style
I chose this leather jacket to style in three different ways, because it is so versatile. I feel it can be paired with anything, and I love how I can wear it both casually and with smart clothes too! I also thrifted it from depop for £8 and am really happy with the purchase.

The first outfit is a casual look. Although quite a dark colour, I think the checkered skirt really complements the jacket, and I was very happy with this outfit! This was the first time I wore this outfit, and it was the perfect look for an eBay x Love Island S9 pre-loved party, where I got the chance to see all the pre-loved clothes going into the villa!
This second look is quite casual too, but I think the leather jacket looks really good with jeans! I also styled the outfit with my tan uggs which really go well with the outfit. I bought these uggs almost ten years ago before I was committed to sustainable living, but I refuse to get rid of them before they are completely worn out. If you are vegan but want uggs, there are so many alternatives available or you can thrift some.I love how the leather jacket replaces a coat in this outfit, but I wore a turtleneck jumper underneath it as it was still quite cold outside!
My third look is a going out look! I styled my leather jacket with a cute dress and my timberlands – sadly my photographer didn’t capture the Tims 🙁 I think this is a perfect outfit for seeing friends or going out for drinks. It is very stylish but also comfortable!
