There are so many gorgeous new looks around this Autumn that even we don’t know where to start with updating our wardrobe! We love almost everything we see, and yet despite all the new trends and designs we know how easy it is to get stuck in a fashion rut and end up buying the same styles and colours every time.
Are you nodding your head in agreement? Probably, because we’re all guilty of it, so we decided to set a little challenge to see just how difficult (or should we say easy) it is to add some new statement items to your wardrobe, instantly refreshing your look and giving you the confidence to create a new style and maybe even become a bit more adventurous with fashion…
So, our first Five Day Littlewoods Style Challenge was taken on by our lovely menswear buyer, Dorothy. We gave Dorothy eight key pieces from our new Autumn ranges, including brands such as French Connection, Dune and Miss KG, and she had to incorporate the items into her Monday to Friday outfits. And when we say key pieces we’re talking about clothing and footwear that is so versatile that you’ll end up wearing it for every occasion and with everything else you own – the kind of thing that you end up wondering what you wore before you bought it!
So far, so easy, yes? Well it’s worth saying that Dorothy didn’t have a say in the pieces we gave her and it turned out that they weren’t all necessarily the kind of styles she would have thought to buy for herself. So Dorothy’s challenge was to have the confidence to wear something a bit different every day, and to make it work with her own wardrobe and personal style.
The eight key pieces include Dune ballerina pumps, Miss KG wedge shoes, a Vila leopard print tunic, a Nougat waterfall cardigan, South skinny combats, and a dress, a blouse and a jacket all from French Connection. And without giving too much away, we think it’s fair to say that at the end of the week Dorothy had pulled off some fabulous looks with some pieces that she had previously said she didn’t think she would suit. How wrong she was!
So now we’ve set the scene, all you have to do is check out Dorothy’s daily blog posts next week to see how she gets on. Oh, and did we mention that there will also be a daily giveaway for our readers? Well every day we’ll be giving away one of the key pieces that Dorothy wore that day, so if you want to be in with the chance of winning something new and stylish, don’t miss the Five Day Littlewoods Challenge starting on Monday!
