I love denim. I love New Look. And I love putting outfits together.
So, when I saw this competition New Look are running with Sparkle Fashion Blog I just had to get involved! You can find all the details and rules of the competition here, but basically the idea is to create an outfit for any occasion based around a pair of New Look jeans. New Look will give the winner £200 plus a pair of jeans, and 9 runners up will also receive some jeans.
With the competition running over September and October, I decided to go with an autumn theme - a good look for as the weather gets colder. I've explained all my choices in the description underneath, and you can click on the picture to make it bigger.
I wanted to make my entry original and so, as I'm writing this on 4th October which is National Poetry Day, I decided to write a poem about the outfit, rather than just write about it! I very rarely write poems, but I enjoyed putting this together (and it didn't actually take that long!) so I hope you enjoy it!
As Autumn leaves begin to fall
My wardrobe needs some new additions.
So I couldn't help but spend some time
On New Look's Denim Competition.
The skinny jeans are the centre piece
High-waisted and a gorgeous red.
Now I'll ditch the summer floaty skirts
And opt for these instead.
Autumn often brings a chill
So this fur gilet will keep me warm.
It's chunky style balances the jeans
Which are fitted to the form.
I'll add a bobble hat for extra warmth
So I'm cosy come rain or snow.
And with these wedges on my feet
I've a complete look from head to toe.
'Double denim?!' I hear you cry
'Surely this shirt should be a 'no'?!'
But trying to get out of my fashion rut
With confidence I'll give it a go.
Practical outfits don't need to be dull
A statement necklace is right on trend.
So I'll add to the neck of a casual shirt
And keep the look stylish til the end.
As a rock chick at heart I couldn't resist
This bag, perfect for my essentials.
Covered in this season's studs
It'll up my fashion credentials.
So there's my outfit
For crunching Autumn leaves as days get dark.
Practical, stylish, cosy and 'me'
I think it really hits the mark!
