Electric Avenue

top and leggings: Zara, belt: Vintage, shoes: Carvela, earrings: Accessorize

A big trend for Winter 12/13, this electric shade of cobalt blue can be a little intimidating for some but can be easily introduced into your wardrobe with a cobalt blue heel or handbag and toned down with carbon black staples. Personally I’m a big fan of this colour and although I was a huge fan of the sequin peplum top from Zara I must admit to being disappointed in its design, like with many of their peplum items they haven’t catered for practicality and ease of wear; it is a real pain to get in and out of, the zip is poor quality and should really have been longer as though usually a XS/S I found I was forced to buy a medium for fear the overly delicate zip would otherwise not survive the process, however this meant I needed a belt to provide the structure the larger size wasn’t otherwise going to deliver… however, you don’t really want to be left feeling the same colour as your new clothes!!!
