Express Yourself


“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live.” —Gianni Versace

I hold my hands up, I’m the first to check what’s on the catwalk every season. I love to know what the top designers have decided we will be wearing. We all do it, we find a new trend to follow or a style we want to emulate. And while there is nothing wrong with staying in the know or admiring new styles I think we need to be aware that fashion is personal. For me it’s all about knowing what I like.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love a new trend but I am also very aware of what suits me and what suits my personality. This is a look I shot at the very end of 2016 with a vision for it to set the tone for Yellow Polka Dot Bikini Blog 2017. The look is all about expression and is a look I feel so comfortable in.

I hope you enjoy.

Until next time,

The coat is the main feature of this look. Oversized coats are something that keep appearing in my wardrobe. They are so easy to throw on over a casual outfit or to drape over your shoulders for a more glamorous look.

The blouse underneath adds a really bright pop of colour which contrasts beautifully with the leopard print.

I themed the blouse with a pair of loose fitting boyfriend jeans to keep the look casual.
