New Look Denim Competition Entry: Bonfire Night Outfit
I was recently contacted about a really fun fashion competition, which is being run by New Look and Sparkle Fashion Blog and focuses on New Look’s new collection of fabulous jeans. As it happens, New Look is one of the only shops on the high street where I can buy jeans as I am 5’10” and they actually make jeans long enough to fit me, so I jumped at the chance of entering! After all, the grand prize is £200 and a pair of jeans, and a pair of jeans for nine runners up! The idea of the competition is to create an outfit for any occasion using items from the New Look online store, with a pair of sexy jeans as the centrepiece. Once you’ve decided on your items you then need to blog your look and finalise your entry on this Sparkle Fashion Blog post.
As I’ve mentioned before, Autumn is my favourite time of year. I love the gorgeous colours, the sharp coldness of the Autumn sun, and the massive amount of fun that can be had, especially on Halloween and Bonfire Night! As such, I decided to put together a seasonal outfit which would be suitable to wear on Bonfire Night, whilst standing in a dark field or garden, warming yourself next to the flames whilst watching fireworks and eating jacket potatoes and toffee apples. My idea of a happy Autumn evening Here is what I came up with…
Shop this Look:
So far this Autumn I have lived in skinny jeans, so the obvious choice of jeans for me was this skinny pair in my favourite colour. I absolutely adore the deep plum shade and I’d love a pair for myself! I chose the simple black knitted jumper to go with the jeans so that it wouldn’t detract from them, but compliment them with the matching purple striped sleeves. I actually tried this very jumper on a few weeks ago and it’s so snuggly and well-fitting – perfect for a chilly night spent outside.
As a nod towards this season’s trend for all things Gothic, I added the stunning skull print scarf, and for extra warmth and to pick up on the turquoise shade running through the scarf I included the knitted hat. Purple and turquoise are two of my favourite colours and I love to wear them together – I think they compliment rather than clash, and they make for a fun combination!
Bonfire Night often involves standing in a soggy field or garden, so I thought a pair of wellies would be ideal footwear for this look. I found this amazing pair of Biker Wellies on New Look’s website which transform the typical frumpy welly into something a little more chic. I really like how they look like boots so can be dressed up, and they add an extra hint of Gothic on top of the scarf.
Last but not least, for an extra splash of colour and glamour, I chose a beautifully bright Jade nail polish for the finishing touch which I think rounds the outfit off nicely.
