18 and East “Style It Your Way” Challenge

The lovely guys at one of my favourite high street haunts – 18 and East – recently asked me to take part in their “Style It Your Way” challenge. All I had to do was pick a piece and style it my way. Simple, non? Well no actually, I discovered the hardest part of the challenge was actually picking one piece, their AW11 collection has some really great pieces, I love the bright teal and coral pieces which are perfect for injecting some colour into your autumnal wardrobe and the cute prints are super fun.I almost went for a lovely star printed skirt but chose this oversize waterprint chiffon shirt. The voluminous box shape just looked so easy to wear and the blurry, blotchy colours are so unique. I wore the shirt with black skinny jeans from J.Brand and brogue wedges from Bertie. The shirt is so versatile though, I’m looking forward to wearing it dressed down with studded biker boots, layered over dresses, basically with everything! How would you style up this shirt?
