How To Style - CONCH CLOTHING (Winter Edition)

If you haven't already seen me raving on about/repping Conch Clothing on social media then literally, how have you avoided it I never shut up about them???
I met the owners, Josh and John, in Brighton two summers ago; three months after they created the brand in the heart of the city. Their t-shirts and brand style are extremely street-style/psychedelic, just think acid trip gifs meet fabric. They also have a newer range of more simple, 'basic stitches' that still channel their paper-plate guy logo. 
After over a year and a half of adoring this brand, I decided to finally style three of their t-shirts in three different ways. Even though the brand itself is more aimed at guys, I wanted to show just how uni-sex they can be. 


This was the first t-shirt I bought from Conch Clothing back in 2015. I love how the marbled grey looks and makes it perfect to match with any outfit. This pink duo pairing has been my go to lately as it's so easy to wear yet looks like you've spent hours getting ready in the morning. I bought this baby pink leather jacket from Zara last summer and it's been one of my favourite pieces to throw over any outfit since then. My heart literally skipped a beat when I found this vintage pink leather a-line skirt and knew that they these two were just meant to be together. I decide to give these pastel pieces an edgy twist with a pair of fishnets, some laceup platform boots and an alien purple lip. Another little detail I added were these bomb ass socks with some naked ladies on them which I got during my trip to Iceland #freethenipple

This second look is 'based' (lmao puns) around this long-sleeved black and white baseball t-shirt. I kept with a monochrome theme and wore it with this city skyline bodycon skirt as it gives and nice upward gradient. Ya girls done a 'dad' and worn socks and sandals, I know. Even though some people deem this a fashion crime, you can get away with it with the right colours and textures. I wore a pair of black knee highs over some fishnets with some thick strap chunky sandals to keep it streamline and elevated. To add some colour I wore my burgundy coat to switch up the monochromatic palette.

My third and final look is a little bit soft-grungy and a little bit punk. I wore this oversized plain white t-shirt with the paper plate logo as a dress because 5"2 problems. I wore it with some black tights and a black beaded choker. As this outfit on its own is a little plain James, I spruced it up with a shit load of prints. I threw on my faux fur leopard print coat to add loads of warmth and a pair of snakeskin booties. I love this clash of print as its not too overbearing on the eye and is perfect for on the go.

Day n Night Collab #Fendi4YourCarbon

Any girl who loves clothes (and is constantly and obsessively buying more by the day) has probably come to the situation is which you see another girl wearing the same piece as you (as if!) This can go either two ways; 1) you become life long rivals and both think 'ugh how dare she wear the same thing I'M wearing', or 2) you realise that this was a sign from the gods and now you have to do a fierce blog collaboration. 

The piece - Faux Fur Leopard Print Coat from Topshop

What I love about Isa's style is that she always looks so put together and effortlessly chic. Her awareness of trends and how to style them are on point and she documents it all on her blog, Fendi 4 Yourself. Also, her instagram is actual #goals.
For my day time look I paired the coat with a baby pink leather a-line skirt from Jemporium Vintage. I think leopard print compliments pastel colours so nicely without it being overbearing. I wore this white t-shirt because it's super casual and and they print gives it a little bit of edge. For my shoes I wore my go-to white and silver star trainers from Topshop which are perfect for when I'm on the go. I wore some black tights for warmth and finished the look with some black hoops.

To give it a more night time feel, I swapped the t-shirt for a black bardot top to show off my shoulders and collarbones, and the trainers for a pair of block velvet heels to elevate the look. I tied my hair into a ponytail to elongate my neck and pulled out some strands from the front to frame my face.

Isa styled her fur coat with an all-black everyday wear ensemble. She teamed a pair of black classic skinny jeans with a black t-shirt that has a really chic added choker detailing which i think pays a perfect homage to the massive trend. For shoes she wore a pair of white Adidas which give it a perfect street-style element to it.

For her night time look, she opted for a different look entirely giving the coat the more glamourous feel that leopard print slays. She styled the coat with a pair of gorgeous satin feel jogger style trousers with a black turtleneck to give a streamlined contrast to the trousers. To finish it off she wore a pair of black strappy stilettos which I adore for this look.
