6 DAY STYLE DIARY CHALLENGE – GEORGE @ ASDA

We all have a style uniform. Basically, we have our favourite wardrobe items and we rarely stray from them. I’m so guilty to sticking with what I find comfortable and my go-to is always jeans… but I’ve been set a challenge by George at ASDA to create a style diary where I mix up my style uniform, and yes, that means no jeans. *shrivels into corner and cries*

I wear jeans in nearly every outfit (and own about 30 pairs in as many different shades of blue and black that you can possibly think of) but I just find that they’re comfortable, flattering and go with pretty much everything. However I’m up for the challenge and I’m determined to change up my outfits a little bit more. I’ve got 6 sassy outfits ready to show you and not a skinny jean in sight. Promise!

6 DAY STYLE DIARY CHALLENGE

STRIPED CULOTTES – DAY 1

When deciding what to wear for bottoms instead of jeans the first thing I wanted to style was some culottes. You either love them or hate them, but I think they’re a perfect Spring staple and you can wear them with exactly the same items that you’d wear with jeans. Stripes are super on trend at the moment too so this pair of culottes are not only fab and comfortable (they have a slightly elasticated waist) they’re also mega chic.

SASSY IN SKIRTS – DAY 2

I decided to try wearing a skirt… Not my usual forte but why not? I chose this gorgeous lace jumper from George and it went so well with some black suede goodness. Too scared about being cold? I’m wearing skin-coloured tights, I got this.

LITTLE BLACK DRESS – DAY 3

Black button-up dresses, tights and boots. I think this outfit is the definition of smart-casual, but who really knows what that is anyway? I’ve added gold accessories to an all black outfit with a tan coloured bag. Simple but chic, and totally perfect for this time of year.

SMART WORKWEAR – DAY 4

I guess I need to wear something smart at some point… I’ve dressed up a simple grey shift dress and added a smart black blazer with some cute strap heels. A monochrome outfit wouldn’t be complete without a pop of colour from the bag, am I right? Perfect for work but still super comfortable.

FRIDAY FUN DAY – DAY 5

What’s more fun than floral trousers? And who says the pattern has to be on the top half? This is totally mixing up my style uniform, but I kinda love it.

THE WEEKEND – DAY 6

By this point I was really missing my jeans… but I compromised and chose to wear a denim shirt dress. Is that allowed? This look is super casual and really on-trend without having to put in too much effort. I’m starting to dig the whole no-jeans thing.

So that’s my attempt at mixing up my #styleYOUniform – when you think about it there are so many ways to mix up your outfits and there’s more to fashion than just jeans (did I just say that?). I’m still quite a trousers girl so trying out smarter trousers and culottes is definitely a good way to wear what you’re comfortable in whilst still changing it up.
