"What I would wear today if I could.."
I absolutely love printed t-shirts, they're so versatile and great for taking you from the working day to after work drinks. Imagine my joy when I came across the 'Hype' store while browsing around Shoreditch last weekend!The 'Hype' brand first caught my attention through their concession in Topshop, and, until finding their store at Boxpark, I had not realised how much variety their brand offers! 'Hype', founded in 2011, specialises in detailed printed t-shirts that are an amazing colourful alternative to the popular photographic printed tee.
I love a good motivational quote and their website doesn't disappoint with the following slogan on their "About" page:
"Believe. Only the strong survive."
This is so true in life, and so relevant to a career in the fashion industry.
My appreciation for this brand has just increased...again...because of this I have decided to do two style posts today, each featuring a different 'Hype' tee as I was incapable of choosing just one!
|Disco Pants(£20.00)Boohoo, Geometric print tee(£24.99) Hype, Holographic unicorn clutch(£21.03) Aliexpress, Necklace(£56.78) Nutcasefashion on Etsy.com, Shoes(£45.00)Very.co.uk.|
I came home yesterday to a lovely package from boohoo with my new disco pants in!I absolutely can't get enough of these things and I'm determined to get at least 5 pairs in assorted colours. Boohoo do an amazing selection and at only £20.00 they manage to be affordable without having to compromise the quality! I actually prefer the satin boohoo disco pants to the original american apparel ones as they're elasticated and I don't feel like my behind is threatening an appearance via the seams. I also love the midnight blue shade of my new pair as they're great for summer but will carry me through to autumn as well.
I thought I would include my new favourite pants in both of today's style posts to show how they can be styled in two completely different ways!
I love that, despite being a unisex tee, this outfit looks really feminine with the pinks/purples. I wanted a holographic effect bag to go with this outfit and found this unicorn bag on aliexpress while i was googling, I know it won't be to everyone's taste but I think it's amazing and adds some childish charm to the outfit. I've pulled all the colours together in this style post with a statement necklace from Nutcase fashion's current SS13 collection.
|Disco pants(£20.00)Boohoo, Animal/chain print tee(£24.00) Hype, Embossed leather bag(£18.00)FlossiesVintageAttic on Etsy.com, Flatform shoes(£11.12) http://www.clothing.net/, Eagle necklace(£12.50)Topshop.|
My second outfit for today is a little tougher!With another amazing printed tee from Hype, this outfit is bang on trend with a unique combination of geometric shapes, animal print and botanical florals. I've paired this with some leopard print flatforms from a new website I came across- clothing.net. Never in my life could I have imagined finding such good quality on trend footwear for such a low price.
Along with my other fashion related obsessions(flatforms, statement necklaces and pencil skirts) I adore hand crafted leather bags and find it difficult to come back from a trip abroad without buying one to add to my collection. I have decided to accessorize this leopard tee/disco pant combo with an embossed hand made vintage leather bag from Etsy. I am still fascinated by how much of a treasure chest Etsy is, I can always find something on there that finished off an outfit perfectly.
