Contemporary Folk



I recently found this little gem of a zipped skirt in the Zara sale for £25.99. Personally the embroidered trend is too big and fabulous for it to be going away any time soon, so I figured it was a good purchase.

Skirts form a big part of my everyday look, I swear by an A-line cut and who doesn’t love a bit of floral?

The embroidery is thick and suede material is excellent quality. This is a skirt which can be updated for summer and autumn in my opinion. Throughout summer I’ll be teaming the skirt with a simple black top or a crisp white shirt for a smart work look.

However, to dress it up as a weekend look, I’ll be wearing it with my off-white poet blouse from Topshop, my cross-body bag from Matalan ( which is a bit Chloé faye inspired, don’t you think?) To complete this look I decided to wear bigger silver hoops to draw on that folk meets hippie style, and I also needed to create a more youthful look. This look is a bit more folky and hints at a boho american trend – which by the way is still making a comeback this spring/ summer.

This poet blouse helps to balance out the femininity of the skirt and creates a more loose fitting style which is perfect for the daytime.

The best part of this look is that it can be easily updated with some tights, statement ankle boots and a stylish black mid-length jacket, perfect for autumnal walks or shopping because to quote Carrie Bradshaw, ‘shopping is my cardio!’

To be quite honest, as you are aware I like to follow fashion trends loosely, so embrace wearing folk styles when you want a statement outfit for the day but requires minimal fuss. To me the style is quite feminine with a streak of classic Californian style which makes it uber cool.
