Benetton Style: Equestrian-eque

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: November 8th, 2011

On a chilly afternoon on a weekend, wearing a Benetton wool blazer (a/w11), a crisp white shirt and jeans, bright yellow socks and heels, hair scrape back into a sleek bob, it would have been a serious mistake if I have worn my brown leather riding boots out in this outfit.  Why? With a pair of riding boots I would end up looking like an equestrian rider in town without a stallion.  Agree?

Thankfully the Benetton wool blazer has kept me warm throughout the evening and totally loving the whole smart ‘grown up’ look.

An Italian flavour – a dose of latte, spinach and gnocchi to give me added strength and warmth due to lack of carbs in recent weeks.

 Benetton Style: Red Chunky Knit

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: September 15th, 2011

The aftermath of Hurricane Katia became a leftover swash of gale which hit the UK over the weekend, fortunately it didn’t hit as bad in London than in the north of England.  Not as frigidly cold as I had expected to be in September but it has been generally quite warm surprisingly (thumbs up), a knitted sweater is always handy if I plan to stick around town later in the much chillier evening.  Thankfully this lovely bright red chunky knitted sweater from Benetton (Photos shot by The Style Crusader) has kept me warm the other night, so snugly in fact it’s enough to stop traffic.  Keep warm Benetton friends!

 Benetton Style: Trans-season

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: August 25th, 2011

Definitely feeling the combination of heat and chill, lumpy goose-bumps comes out to give a shout out ‘yeah I really needed a jacket right now’.  Autumn is my favourite trans-season from late Summer, simply because it is when I feel at most ‘comfortable’ without being fussy in choosing what to wear.

Talking about ‘trans-season’ fashion, I’m wearing my favourite Sisley SS11 crochet batwing sweater, paired with Benetton AW11 grey herringbone pleat front shorts (available in the store), and incorporate with my own polka-dot sheer blouse tied on waist, vintage bowler hat, animal print sheer socks and black pony skin brogues.  I am liking this whole combination of masculine, simple layering and pop of red colour. It’s very different to my usual complex addiction with floral combo.

 Benetton Style: Coming Autumn

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: August 17th, 2011

Being the only fashionista in the suburban village town of Southgate in North London (fact), I personally find it challenging to dress in a moderately-conservative way when leaving my house to commute to central London, without offending my non-fashionable community let alone my last acidic outfit where I had to walk with my head down and avoid eye contact.

This is the closest moderately-styled for the Summer season finale. Both green frilly top and black casual trousers are from Benetton (SS11), I’ve added a pop of purple colour silk scarf for the hair braid, pony skin brogues and borrowed vintage camera.  Thanks to Style Crusader for helping out with the outfit photos.

Autumn styling is NEXT!

 Benetton style: a pop of yellow and pink

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: July 20th, 2011

Never in the world I would be brave enough to wear a super bright fluorescent yellow trousers in London town especially in this horrid weather, nonetheless the outfit managed to brighten the depressive day.  With the Benetton trousers I balanced the yellow with a loose fit white t-shirt, multicolour necklace, pink and grey stripey cardigan, pink checks and beige converse and bright pink Benetton scarf which has a cute lip print on it.

This style has a sense of casualness, urban and hip-hop.  Ideally I would define this look as Swagger with a touch of cuteness, but what’s missing?  The look can never go without key Swagger accessories like; dice key chains, retro Casio watch, huge headphones and baseball cap.  Never mind the cluttered accessories, simpleness is the key.

Thanks to Jen of The Style Crusader for the outfit photos.

Added note: A few days after the shots posted both Benetton and Style Slicker blogs, the shot is featured on New York mag‘s this week street style.
