FASHION FAVOURITES OF 2019

This post contains affiliate links. Please read my full disclaimer here.

This will probably be my last rewind post for 2019. I had been meaning to post this blog post much sooner, think like after Christmas. But I was just too much of a sloth to get out of bed and take photos for this post to be honest with you. Anyway, I finally got my but into gear and am very excited to share clothing pieces that have made my 2019 a whole lot more enjoyable. In the world we currently live in, where everything is available for us to order online it’s easy to keep buying clothes. 2019 was definitely the year where I tried to halt my purchases and be more conscious about the clothes that I do buy. That’s why to me it comes as no surprise that the style staples I mention in this blog post have also been featured in many styling posts before.

& Other Stories basic tees

The first item (or items) that have become an absolute staple in my wardrobe are the basic, 100% cotton t-shirts from & Other Stories. I love a basic tee, that’s no secret. But one of the things I always found the hardest was to find a tee that looked comfortable and also felt comfortable. I honestly think I have found the one with these basic t-shirts from & Other Stories as they are a loose fit and have a high neck. These tees are not only a staple inside my wardrobe when it’s spring/summer, but I also always wear them in winter underneath my jumpers to keep myself warm.

Weekday Ink blazer

Ah, the return of this Weekday blazer. This is definitely one of the best purchases I have made in 2019. Remember how much I used to wear it during spring and summer? It was almost like it was glued to my body to be honest. Now that it’s wintertime, I find it harder to style this blazer, as it’s definitely not the warmest one I own. Which is why I have avoided wearing it. Now that I have seen it on again though, I definitely think I might want to wear again even though it’s winter. I think I could really easily style this with a lightweight jumper or maybe even a tee when it’s slightly warmer outside.

blue ASOS Farleigh jeans

Mom jeans. I love them! Last year I was still wearing skinny jeans so often, but 2019 has been the year of me wearing mom jeans non-stop. Back in the day I only used to really wear black skinny jeans, but I ventured out of my comfort zone and now I am addicted to wearing blue mom jeans. My favourite pairs are the ASOS Farleigh jeans and I now own two pairs of blue mom jeans and one pair of black mom jeans. I recently also added a pair of washed black mom jeans that have been glued to my body since buying them in the Black Friday Sale. I honestly think ASOS have the best kind of mom jeans for my size and length. Whenever I try to buy mom jeans elsewhere, they always disappoint.

H&M wrap coat

It wouldn’t really be a fashion favourites post of mine if I would not incorporate a black coat into the post. Black coats are always timeless pieces that can instantly make your wardrobe look super classic. I have an insane amount of black coats that I have collected since high school and I still wear all of them. This year however I have fallen absolutely in love with this wrap coat from H&M. It’s such a classic and timeless piece and I love the belt so you can give yourself a bit of a waist when you’re wearing lots of layers of clothing in winter.

Rika Franca bag

This bag is such a staple in my day-to-day life. This was a purchase I made back in 2017, but I still get so much joy out of it whenever I wear it. I think this is one of those bags that are very versatile and will still be enjoyed in lots of years to come. This bag sadly isn’t sold anymore, but I think it’s so important to invest in a bag that you know you will love for years to come. It’s totally up to you what kind style of bag this is, but I personally would always stick to black bags, as I know they are timeless and versatile pieces.

Primark leopard midi skirt

2019 is the year I gained some more body confidence. I gained confidence and felt like it was about time I ventured slightly outside of my comfort zone. This Primark leopard midi skirt was one of the first purchases I made this year after seeing it on my favourite girl Vix Meldrew. I loved the look of the Reformation skirts and this was such a good dupe to venture into the midi skirts-side of life. Anyway, to this day I have not regretted purchasing this skirt, as it’s become such a staple inside of my wardrobe. I have worn it lots in the spring/summer season and even debated wearing it for Christmas. All I know is that I cannot wait for spring/summer to roll around so I can finally wear this skirt again without having super cold legs.

Adidas Yung 96-J trainers

Lastly I have to mention this pair of trainers in my fashion favourites post. These trainers also made an appearance in my fashion favourites post last year and lots of styling posts this year, which only confirms that I truly love them. These are the trainers I wear 90% of the time when I am out and about, especially when I’m not shooting photos for my blog. These are the most comfortable pair of trainers that I own and honestly don’t think I want to ever wear another pair of trainers ever again. They have made so many steps in 2018 and 2019 already and they still look in perfect condition.
