Shopping at Next: Casual Outfit Spring/Summer 2013

I must admit I like Next’s clothes, half of my little boy’s wardrobe is from Next. They have a lovely collection of boy’s clothes. I also like their women’s clothes – gorgeous dresses, fabulous bags and stunning shoes.

Next has also a brilliant collection of casual wear. I basically live in jeans as I can wear casual clothes for work, we don’t have a uniform or dress code. I like having a few main items in my wardrobe so I can easily mix and match to create an outfit quickly in the morning.

When I went to the Next store a few days ago, I noticed that their Spring/ Summer 2013 collection is already out. The store looked much brighter and colourful than during my previous visit.

I picked three essential items:

Gorgeous Short Sleeve Chiffon Mix Top (RRP £14.00) is part of the new collection. It is very stylish with a chiffon panel and animal print.

I usually prefer more fitted tops, but I really liked the see-through part of the top and the print on the front. It is all black at the back.

Boot Cut Jeans and Printed Top from Next

Dark Blue Rinse Boot Cut Jeans (RRP £20.00) are a fashion must-have this season, they look great with heels for a casual look.

I usually buy skinny jeans, however I noticed that I don’t have a nice pair of boot cut jeans in my wardrobe. Skinny jeans are great to wear with boots in the winter, but I will be wearing boot cut jeans with heels as soon as the weather gets warmer again.

Opaque Tights from Next

60 Denier Opaque Tights (RRP £6.00) are great any time of the year. I basically wear tights all year round, so I can never have too many of them. Opaque tights look lovely with a nice dress or skirt, whether you are wearing a casual or smart outfit.

I was very happy that the items above came up to £40, so I managed to have a new outfit for only £40!

So how would I style my outfit?

Boot cut jeans look great with heels, so I could have a pair of platform court shoes with my outfit. The snow has melted, but it is still quite cold, so I would need a jacket to brave the weather outside – PU Biker Jacket would compliment my outfit.

I could add some sparkle by wearing Flower Earrings, Crystal Effect Friendship Bracelet and Silver and Gun Knot Necklace. The outfit would be complete with a Zip Detail Tote Bag.

Although it is a casual outfit, I could wear it during the day or to go out in the evening with hubby. I would look stylish anytime of the day!
