What I Wore This Week: Easter Weekend, by Fashion Contributor Angie Quinn

Easter weekend is all about over-indulgence, relaxing and an over-whelming defiance to engage in any form of work and study. Since the four-day celebrations were the most interesting in my social calendar since crimbo, I thought I’d share my speckled dress-sense.

I always believe in two fashion accessories, a good watch and a comfortable pair of wedges. With my style ranging from a sleek dress to scruffy jeans – and my choice of clothes normally depends on my random activities I’m participating in that day. 

Outfit One: Good Friday

After racking up significant walking mileage across the Cobham countryside in Kent with my wonderful family, a quick change for a friend’s BBQ came inform of a solid black outfit and a contrasting bag containing bold London routemasters.

H&M have the most comfortable collection of SS17 tops on offer with this airy v-shaped, satin textured beauty teamed with a pair of leather look leggings from Boohoo, my signature wedges (sort of saluting that outfit worn by Sandy in Grease) was all broken up with a colourful Cath Kidston.

I wore an elegant DKNY time-piece and sunglasses  borrowed from a friend for the afternoon as I squint terribly in the sun – but it worked.

Outfit Two: London Town

Camden Market was the location for a Saturday social with mates. Visiting the richly decorated Shaka Zulu - who offer a delicious £9.50 lunch deal by the way - meant dressing smart-casual with a little added funk.

To get my required look, I added a H&M straight cut viscosecrêpe top in a fresh khaki green, ripped, high waisted Primark jeans, a tailored Boohoo cape, a slick DKNY bag and my signature high wedges. My blue suede shoes were so comfortable I wore them for eight hours straight in the North London marketplace, what’s more I paid £18 for them in Asda. I think I nailed it.

Outfit Three: Easter Funday

When I was little, I always recalled Victoria Beckham stating that a little black dress was her answer to everything, and have adopted her affirmation ever since.

I love a black dress for all occasions, so no surprise at what I wore for a family Easter lunch. This shift cut was brought in the Boohoo sale (yes I am a Boohoo fiend) for an only tenner. The sparkly lining on the sleeves added a bit of glamour and was worn with wedges and a classic DKNY watch teamed with silver jewelry to give extra glisten.

I purchased my shoes from online retailer JustFab for a bargain £12 from £54.

Outfit Four: Bank holiday chills

Is it really necessary to get dressed-up on a bank holiday? I think not. So I adopted a lazy style with a grey lounge tracksuit (Boohoo), and a pair of in your face Converse high-tops. Looking as if I am wearing a pair of pyjamas in public, I strolled through another Kent park sporting a green Primark lightweight mac to keep the wind out and enjoyed lunch in the great outdoors, in complete cosiness. Still wearing a casual desginer watch, given to me by my Grandma as I cant go anywhere without wearing one.

Outfit Five: Back to work

An early morning commute back to work in London means a comfortable, rustic hipster look as my outfit choice of the day. My dark red turned up jeans and mustard colour top are both from New Look, my fitted blazer is from Debenhams and my brown, classic loafers are from Office at the House of Fraser. The contrasting colours were a riot but echoes the cool, offbeat trends of the city.

My sense of style has no boundaries when it comes to dressing for the day. I enjoy wearing bold, colliding colours but also adpot a dark sophisticated look, especically on special occastions. Come the summertime I probably will have adopted a whole new look... who knows!
