Style in the City Week 4 - Satisfashion Blog

28 April 2014

I cannot believe this will be the last Satisfashion Style in the City blog post for This is Edinburgh - Edinburgh Street Style, but the time has come to go back to my day job and start creating the Style in the City street style stars of the future - Not too bad personal shopping I suppose :)

Well Edinburgh you definitely turned it up a fashionable notch the sun was shining and what an attractive bunch we have for you this week. I feel this was the first chance Edinburgh was able to wear the spring summer pieces that they had recently bought and stared at in wardrobes but today was their first outing.

Check out our stylish recreated looks this week.

Alex’s look is a great take on menswear trend of outfits in tonal shades of one colour its easy to wear for sunny days. A nice pair of tailored pale blue shorts would look great also.

Week4 Dummy Female

Hannah’s outfit is a nod to the pastel trend in her skirt (In her recreated look its more a nod to colourful florals) and also to the clash of trends with the leather grunge boot and bag then with the added denim jacket another big trend for spring summer, I feel this look is very wearable for many ages and could easily be changed from a day to night look with a change into heels.

Massive THANK YOU to White Stuff on George Street for allowing us to use their mannequins and fabulous store to shoot our recreated looks.

Thank you to Covet on Thistle Street for your fabulous bag to shoot also.
