I am an avid blog reader. I'm always interested in where people have bought their clothes and how they style them up. There are often many shops that are in the mix, however Next very rarely being one of them.
Next really do come up trumps when it comes to merchandising within stores. It is done in such a way that it makes it effortless to put together outfits. Often grouped together are complementary colour schemes and textures. This means you really can't go too wrong when choosing items as they have been carefully selected and merchandised in a specific way. However due to this, I feel sometimes it doesn't leave much room for creativity or personal stylistic quirks when outfit creating.
Now about the actual clothes: I do believe that their sizes can be a little sketchy at times, and I would always recommend trying clothes on. Having said this, once you have found your fit you will see that the quality is one of the best on the high street.
I have got to say this outfit is so comfortable and stylish at the same time. Completely different for me, wearing a colour I wouldn't normally gravitate to and a print I have never seen imitated anywhere else before. I am, and for as long as I love cake, will always be a fan of an elasticated waistband. They fit perfectly and comfortably at the waist. The vest is very long and definitely requires a tuck in job; which along with the complementary colours makes these two items a perfect combo.
Yellow vest- £18 (sold out in this colour)*
Printed trousers- £35 (sold out in regular lengths)*
*Unfortunately, if an item is a hit they sell out fast
Nude patent heels- £15 (sale) The notorious Next sale is another blog post in itself
