So, if you are like me (who lives east of Great Britain) sunshine is a rare occurrence during the first half of the year. Since I’ve arrived at university, all I have experienced is either rain, wind or snow. Sometimes two of these at the same time! However, now it is nearly June- Summer time! The skirts and shorts are coming out- despite the wind still creeping up on us whenever we leave the house unfortunately. But overall, people are happy. Smiling more. Laughing more. Drinking more (university life and all ).
But one thing that is acting as a set back to the warmish weather, is my clothes rack. I was unprepared fashion wise at the beginning of the year with just how cold it was going to be, and so raided Topshop, H&M, New Look etc for all the woolly necessities. Now, I am trying to be more money-wise and am in the process of losing weight for an upcoming holiday. And in doing so I am carefully picking out pieces that I know I will be able to wear now AND after this weight loss (hopefully). It is unrealistic to say“I am going to buy a size 8 and wear it when I reach my goal weight”; although this can be true, realistically if you are not yet a size 8, you will not wear it now. It’s not possible because it just will not fit. And in stocking up on clothes that you MIGHT wear, you are probably just wasting money. Who knows when you’ll be a size 8.
And so everyone, a way to get the best of both worlds- BUY FITTED ELASTICATED MATERIALS. Try in your size and if you want, try a smaller size- the lighter elasticated material will expand despite being a bit bigger. For tops, the fitted elasticated bands will clinch in at your waist making you appear slimmer and obviously hug to your waist, making it look smaller. For bottoms, go for Jeggings or Leggings. There are SO MANY colours available for leggings so take your pick. Also, jeggings give a similar illusion of skinny jeans,making legs look longer and also the elasticated material will comfortably shape around your legs and fit just right. These can come in different colours also, so outfit-wise : it can suit all occasions.
These picks are perfect as they come in different cuts- whether you want to go sleeveless or not, or casual or classy. They will still give you a spring/summer vibe, whilst keeping you protected from any random gusts of wind or chilliness.
SO FIGHT BACK WITH STYLE ;)
