If you haven't yet come across the Matalan 'Style Project', it's a competition run by the retailer where four bloggers style a particular trend and readers can pick their fave outfit to win! I think the winner gets a £50 voucher to spend at Matalan so that's raaaaather exciting!! I love a good style challenge so when Matalan got in touch, I was trés eager to get involved...
This particular Style Project focuses on Matalan's 'Statement Pieces.' I chose the pencil skirt as my statement piece and then styled an outfit around it. I opted for a workwear look with a cute slouchy blouse, silver necklace, monochrome clutch (which is by far one of my fave pieces) and these super-nice patent loafers which were just £10! Altogether the outfit came to exactly £50 :) not bad huh? Talk about style on a shoestring!
To show you guys how easy it is to update your look from a workwear outfit to something a bit more classy for evening wear, I added my leopard print jacket from Mango which compliments the leopard print belt perfectly. And hey presto, a look which is perfect for after work drinks too!
