BE BRAVE

 
The number one rule in The Fashion Game is, there are no rules. You're all probably pumping your fists at your screens right now, and thinking "M + K, there are rules and they exist for a reason!". Cue flashbacks of Bjork's iconic swan dress and Cher's 1986 Oscar's ensemble. But what's one thing these two starlets have in common besides there questionable outfit choices? CONFIDENCE! Yes, they may not have been on point in the style stakes, but they were both oozing confidence. So, maybe there is a rule in the Fashion Game after all- Confidence is the best accessory.
 
This week, we decided to be brave with our Oasap purchases and show you guys that experimenting with your wardrobe isn't that scary. As Bjork and Cher proved, confidence is the key to pulling off anything and everything. Mixing prints can be a minefield, but it's all about having fun and stepping outside of your comfort zone. 
 
 BLOUSE: Oasap / SKIRT: Oasap / SANDALS: Miss Shop / NECKLACE: Oasap
 
 
When mixing prints, stick to a colour palette by matching the colours from your different prints. With our outfit, we paired a brighter blue striped top with a dusty blue skirt. Sticking to the same family of colours will guarantee that you will be turning heads for the right reason.
 
 
We were quite chuffed with the quality of the 3 pieces we picked up from Oasap, but we were less than satisfied with the shipping time. Once upon a time, Oasap was on the A game with their shipping, arriving on our door steps 7 or less days after the order was placed. This time, it took twice as long!
 
The only one complaint we have about the pieces themselves is the red stitching on the pocket of the blouse. We would have preferred if it was either white or blue, but otherwise we were very impressed with all the pieces.
 
 
 

Look at that blingage!

Instagram: Days of our Lives


Today's post is a little different. Our blog has always been fashion focused with a the odd beauty and DIY post here and there. But what you see on our blog is only part of our lives. Although we'd love to pretend that all we do is indulge in fashion and play dress up all day, the reality is we don't! We're both students and so there's a lot more to our lives than you see on this blog.
 
If you're interested in this other side of us, and in seeing what we get up to during the week, our outfits favourite reads, eats and beauty treats, make sure you check out our Instagram @MxKstyle!!

GET THE LOOK: Cocoon Coats with Jamie Chung

We've saved the best til last. One celebrity who is always on our fashion radar is actress and fashion blogger Jamie Chung. Her effortless chic style reflects ours to a tee, and we guess that's why we've been following her so closely (doesn't sound creepy at all M + K!).

GET THE LOOK: Feelin' Blue

Although we wouldn't say we agree with all their style choices, a celebrity fashion icons list would not be complete without mentioning at least one of the Jenner sisters.
 
We absolutely love the comfort factor of Kendall's outfit. If you comb through your wardrobe you'll be able to throw this look together without having to spend a buck. A simple pair of skinnies, a white tank and a tailored jacket and you'll be Kool to go!! (see what we did there?!)

GET THE LOOK: Chloe Moretz

We've always believed that fashion is about creativity and individuality, but sometimes, just like artists, we need a little extra inspiration. That's when we roll up our sleeves and start celebrity style stalking. With personal stylists and access to all the latest pieces and trends, all the hard work has basically been done for us!!
 
This week we've decided to reveal some of our favourite celebrity style muses and have put together outfits that we hope will inspire you! Now keep in mind, while some of the pieces we've picked out are fairly pricey (even we would not consider buying!!) there is no need to buy a whole new wardrobe. A lot of these pieces can be substituted with basics from your own closet, and remember you can always add your own personal twist to these outfits!!

The first victim of our style stalking is Chloe Moretz. Although only 17, she has definitely established herself as a style icon on the red carpet, but is also envied for her chic and comfortable style away from the cameras. You can easily get this cute look by pairing a denim jacket with any skater skirt you might have and accessorise with your favourite silver jewellery.
