Flares and jewels

We're obsessed with flared trousers at the moment, if they have the slightest flare to them,we're in. We've literally lived in them since September and just have about 20 varying styles on rotation 😂 They're so easy to wear and I feel like I've made an effort when in all actuality, I haven't. We throw them on with T-shirts, hoodies, vests, our Dads old shirts, you name it we'll wear it with flares. They also make you look super skinny and tall, which makes us feel way better about the 10 cups of tea and biscuits we have everyday whilst at our desks. It's all about balance.

This particular velvet pair are a hands down favourite, we've worn them so much since we got them about a year ago, and they go with everything. They're not super flarey (definitely not a word) so are perfect if you want to ease into it and not go full blown ABBA style. They're H&M and the green velvet is gorgeous, these exact ones aren't available anymore but we've linked a similar pair at the bottom. The pussybow blouse is from Zara and the fabric is amazing, although it is a nightmare to iron. We've had this for quite a while so its not available to buy anymore but we've linked a couple styles that would work.

Now to our favourite bit, the earrings! These are the Vivi earrings which are NEW IN and will be perfect for SS18. We love them as they're a bit different from a conventional hoop style earring and have a more of a luxury vibe to them. We've got the most amazing metallic turbans coming in stock soon which they will be a dream with. But until then we're having fun pairing them with everything else. We've also tried them with a dainty choker which is so cute for a night time look or if you're feeling a bit braver try the Vivi earrings with the Reign choker. Super over the top but amazingly so! As ever statement jewellery is a key trend for SS18, think over the top earrings, bedazzled cuffs and layered crystal necklaces. You'll find this and more at Self-Same.
