This is the perfect way to wear my beloved culottes in this colder weather, with a snuggly fluffy jumper. I love the print on this Henry Holland one, it has a kinda christmas jumper feel about it but that's what I like about it. Plus it goes with my new burgundy fedora. I'm sad I cant wear this more, but I can't really wear a hat to work. However despite that I am thinking of buying a dark blue one too, I think its  a great colour for winter.

This week is going to be such a busy week for me. I am working on a short film at the weekend as a makeup designer. Not alot of you may know I am a trained makeup artist too but dont often get time to do any work outside my full time theatre job, but I decided to accept this job. Its a horror comedy film so I'm spending my week making gory prosthetics and prepping ready for the weekend. Plus its the last week of rehearsals of my show at work too so all in all a VERY busy week.
I've got lots of posts planned though including a slightly gothic look for Halloween and a perfectly pink coat in a Missguided outfit post.

Also I have a really cool competition running to win a Brand New Samsung microwave thanks to Birds Eye. All you need to do is play the Steamfresh game on Facebook and create your own steamfresh selection and name it. Tweet me your name and the hashtag #Birdseyesteamfresh to be entered.

Good luck xx

A Cosy Winter with OnePiece

As the weather gets colder and the nights gets darker I can't help but want to come home and snuggle up and get cosy. Last year I was obsessed with my Onepiece onesie which was a god send over the colder months. We live in an old Victorian house and it was such a cold Winter last year, my fleece lined Onepiece was always the warmest thing to wear. Over the Summer months I've been wearing my multi-coloured Onepiece which is more lightweight jersey and cropped, but now its cold again I've got my eye on some of their Winter styles.

I'm loving the rich purple of this Onepiece, also their separates including these cute jumpers and hoodies come in this great grey marl.
If you haven't tried a Onepiece, you should try one out. They are so thick and fleecy on the inside which makes them so warm and I love the details on them like embroidery and full length zips.

Readers of Bang On Style can get 15% off a Onepiece for Winter with the code

Let me know if you decide to try one out!! Are you a onesie lover or hater?

The Wallis Style Advisor App - Day & Night

This is the third and last post in my series of posts in collaboration with Wallis.
I've been test running their fabulous Style Advisor App which is designed to help advise you what clothes suit your shape and style and give you your own personal selection of Wallis items each time you shop online. 
*
So far I've styled two outfits featuring Wallis items picked just for me by the app. First it was a pretty pink blazer and some initial thoughts on the app 
Then I styled up a pair of classic heels and a tailored pair of trousers and showed how the app can create outfits for you based on the items you Like and Dislike.
*
For my final post I picked this gorgeous Wallis Biker jacket. The app kept suggesting it to me and styled up daytime and nighttime looks with the jacket so I decided to choose it and style up two looks with it myself.

Jeans - Zara (Similar here)
Slip Ons - Primark (Similar here)
Fedora - Peacocks (Similar here)

For daytime this jacket is perfect for a day out shopping and I teamed it with my classic ripped jeans and simple striped breton style top. No necklace is needed as the top has a gorgeous jewelled bib design which adds a bit of daytime bling. A fedora and a comfy pair of shoes finish off the causal look.

A biker jacket is a great addition to any night out outfit. I've teamed mine with this graphic design maxi dress from Kaleidoscope and a chunky pair of sandals, plus a bold statement necklace too.

I've really enjoyed trying out the Wallis Style Advisor app. I really loved the way it updated choices for you the more you clicked Like or Dislike and built outfit suggestions for you including bags and jewellery. The app made me consider items and shapes I might not have considered before. I think this kind of app would be so great on other online stores too, I'd certainly use it.
*
Let me know if you try out the app and also which outfit is your favourite Day or Night??
