12/04/2019

There’s still a chill in the air, but we’re sure it won't be for long. Here at Closet London HQ, we’ve rounded up our favourite looks from our latest collection to help you dress for any upcoming occasions you have this Spring.

For a fancy occasion, follow in Brianna’s footsteps, she keeps all eyes on the dress by adding delicate gold jewellery and retro-look white heeled boots to contrast the vibrant colour of the dress.

IMG_7216Q1. Why did you pick this outfit?

I picked this outfit because of the beautiful colour and luxurious feel of the fabric. I think it is the perfect dress to wear for any special occasion, especially high tea or race day.

Q2. How else would you style it?

Depending on the occasion, I would switch my boots to white heels for a more formal event. I would also love to wear this dress to the races and would add a hat or fascinator, and clutch bag.

Q3. What do you love about Closet London styles?

I love the diverse range of styles. There are so many different silhouettes and colours in each collection, providing the right option for everyone no matter what their style or body type is.

Q4. What are your thoughts on this collection?

Blue Horizon is one of my favourite collections I have seen so far. The colour palette combined with the watercolour and floral prints work together so well.

Q5. What are your other favourite pieces in this collection?

Some of my other favourite pieces from the collection are the Closet GOLD Violet Floral Maxi Dress and Closet GOLD Floral Gathered Neck Dress. I absolutely love the floral print featured on each dress. I also like the Blue Textured Spot Sleeveless A-Line Dress; the textured spot is such a fun twist on this classic silhouette!

Q6What are you currently listening to?

I currently have a Feminist Power Playlist on repeat. It features artists like Jess Glynne, Little Mix, Shania Twain, and Beyoncé. Whenever I listen to it, I can’t help but feel confident.

Q7. What are you currently reading?

I’ve been working my way through a compilation of stories from distinguished women called What I Told My Daughter: Lessons from Leaders on Raising the Next Generation of Empowered Women. I love to read the different anecdotes and notes of advice from such strong and powerful women.

Next, we have Simi from the ecommerce team who adores the silhouette of the ivory jumpsuit as it fits perfectly around her waist which is rare to find. She styled it with bright red heels to add a pop of colour and paired it with vintage jewellery as she loves wearing antique earrings and rings.

IMG_6813

Q1. How else would you style it?

I would wear this with trainers and put my hair in a sleek bun. For a summer’s day out, I’d wear it with sandals.

Q2. Who/what inspires you, and why?

I really love the 80’s and old school music. I think behind my fashion and personality; I tend to gravitate to those looks. I enjoy a chic outfit occasionally, but I particularly get inspiration from the 80’s and the era of culture surrounding it.

IMG_6826

Q3. Where would you like to go in this outfit?

I would go to a day event such as a baby shower, a birthday lunch or even a celebratory event such as Mother’s Day.

Q4. What do you love about Closet London styles?

I love the quality and fit of the styles at Closet London, it is hard to find styles that flatter my body type, but I have been pleasantly surprised with Closet London styles and have found a new favourite brand. The trousers and occasion dresses fit me so well.

IMG_7026

Q5. What are your thoughts on this collection?

I love it! Blue is one of my favourite colours, along with a lot of different shades which is great for summer occasions.

Q6. What are your other favourite pieces in this collection?

I really love the Closet GOLD Violet Floral Maxi Dress and the Blue Cropped Leg Trousers! Great additions to my wardrobe for the summer.

Q7. Any message for our followers?

The quality is unbeatable and everything you buy will be worth it. From the customer service to the styles – you cannot go wrong.

Q8. What are you currently reading?

Currently, I am reading Small Island and I love it! I highly recommend this if you are into historical fiction. It is a great story and comical if you need something light-hearted.

Celebrating International Women’s Day

08/03/2019

We’re shining the spotlight on the ladies at Closet London and their outfits to celebrate International Women’s Day, a global celebration of women and our achievements and promoting equality across the world. The theme for 2019 is #BalanceforBetter, looking at building a more gender-balanced world, motivating each other and work to a brighter future.

What does being a woman mean to you? This was the first question we discussed, unanimously Brianna, Lucy and Simi agree that being a woman means being independent, strong but most of all empowered.

We asked the team here to choose their favourite pieces in our latest collection, ‘Carousel’ which makes them feel fantastic!

IMG_6123

For a elegant and flirty look, Brianna chose the Closet GOLD Black Satin Handkerchief Hem Dress and styled it with embellished statement heels and red lipstick to add a pop of colour to her black tie outfit.

IMG_6088

Q1. Who’s your female role model?

Emma Watson has always been my role model since I was a little girl and saw her in the Harry Potter films. She motivates me as a leading female character who didn’t need any help and continues to inspire me as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. She works to empower women and advocates greater gender equality. I’m also inspired by my granny, she fearlessly leads my family with authority and grace. She is always proud of me and encourages me to push forward and achieve amazing things.

Q2. Your favourite quote?

“You can waste your life drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them.” - Shonda Rhimes

IMG_6068

Q3. How do you stay motivated daily? Could be fashion or general life.

I stay motivated by always looking forward. Whether or not I am having a great day, I know that there are amazing things to come. It could be a major life moment, or a small thing such as having some chocolate at the end of the day. An upbeat song helps me to feel great again!

Q4. What female music artist are you loving now and why?

Right now, I’m loving Jess Glynne. Her lyrics are absolutely amazing and I can’t help smiling and dancing when I listen to her.

IMG_6182

Simi teamed the Green Pleated Sleeve Detail Blouse and Black Wide Leg Belted Trousers with co-ordinating green heels and vintage jewellery to express her personal retro style. She enjoys switching up her look by swapping her glasses for contacts, making her feel more confident as it shows off her brown eyes and warm toned eyeshadow.

IMG_6256

Q1. How else would you style this outfit?

I would wear the trousers for a street-style edge with a graphic t-shirt and swap the heels for trainers to make it more comfortable. I think dressing the trousers up or down would be fun and interesting, I like how they are quite versatile. The top would look cool tucked in a cute skirt, with tights and boots.

Q2. Your favourite quote?

“Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” - Rumi

IMG_6203

Q3. Your proudest achievement?

2018 was the best year of my life. I was able to develop my career path, to become and feel truly independent. Last summer, I went on my first solo trip and it encouraged me to experience new things without guidance. This was a huge stepping stone for me, I now feel empowered to take on unfamiliar things that might come my way.

Q4. What’s your thoughts on the Carousel collection?

I don’t wear bright colours often, but I really enjoyed this collection as it has encouraged me to wear more colour. I love the red leopard print skirt as it’s unique and could be worn easily with a t-shirt and trainers. Also, the red geometric print dress reminds me of the 70’s, going back to my love for vintage and old-school styles.

IMG_6476

Staying fashion forward and injecting her personal flare into her outfit, Lucy takes on the utility trend with our Pink Wide Leg Front Zip Shirt Jumpsuit for a fun and vibrant look which is perfect for any occasion where you want to stand out.

IMG_6460

Q1. Why is this your favourite piece from the Carousel collection?

I love that this is a feminine take on a utility style.  It’s very on-trend at the moment but in this bright pink luxe fabric it’s totally unique to what other retailers are offering.  I’ve worn it with classic flat black shoes with my Taurus stud earrings and silver rings.

Q2. Your proudest achievement?

I recently made the Allstars team for my roller derby team, London Rockin’ Rollers! I’m not sure how long I’ll stay there for but I’m really enjoying the challenge so far.

IMG_6423

Q3. What words would you use to describe your personal style?

Smart but comfortable, you’ll rarely find me in a pair of heels, so I love to dress down fancy pieces.

Q4. Who’s your female inspiration?

My sister – she’s always been gifted with determination to work so hard to achieve her dreams, she was a great person to look up to as I was growing up.
