Ok we got it, it’s cold. Real cold here in the UK- but fear not babes of the MINKPINK, Evil Twin and Bitchin’ worlds, we’ve picked up some serious warm-spiration from the net (care of our favourite bloggers) to keep you looking as cool as the chill outside. From ladies styling the infamous ‘Farshion’ coat, or rocking some of summers fave dresses- they’ve worked them as the ultimate transseasonal pieces, and we think we’re a little bit in love.
Here at Out + About, we are all for dressing up at Halloween- however one of the things we don’t get hyped about is trawling eBay for the gear to style up. So, this year we’ve done something a little different. We’ve trawled through a couple of our fave online retailers, browsed only THE hottest new collections from our very own MINKPINK, Evil Twin, Bitching and Junkfood and Somedays Lovin- to bring you Halloween inspired pieces, that guess what- can be worn again (yup, and you won’t look like a ghoul second time round either). All you need is the addition of a broomstick, cat ears or a little bit of face paint- and well, bobs your uncle. Who’d have thunk it?
With the Autumn rolling in (or not, we still don’t get this weather) we are LOVING seeing how our favourite bloggers, and babe presenter Caroline Flack are styling their MINKPINK and Bitching & Junkfood pieces in a trans-seasonal way. Whether that means mixing it with hot AW13 trend pieces (tartan and leather, we’re looking at you) or rockin’ it solo, we’re seriously taken with their styling skills…
Caroline Flack in NEW MINKPINK coming soon!
With the summer sales just starting to drop, we thought we’d get in there early and give you THE hottest picks from our favourite, Urban Outfitters, sale. With prices slashed up to 50% off across our very own MINKPINK, Bitching and Junkfood and Evil Twin (we know, we know) there’s some seriously amazing catches in there that won’t snap themselves up. You know what to do…
With festival season on the horizon and Brighton’s Great Escape (A.K.A the UK’s SXSW) only a week away- it’s no wonder we’ve started planning our festival wardrobes, and making sure we’re kitted out with only the coolest gear. This year we’re taking fashspiration from everything from the ’90s- with cool plaid, pinafore dresses and slogan tees- to ’70s Woodstock; think Janis Joplin style shapes, awesome prints and colours more blinding than the stage lights. We’ll see you in the fields…
We are head over heels (or wellies) for Somedays Lovin’s summer offering. Think floaty shapes Kate Bush would envy (this white maxi waistcoat says it all) and pastel mini dresses to add a girly twist to those muddy DMs.
Take inspiration from festivals gone by with these gorge MINKPINK pieces. From the retro Woodstock dress (with bad ass cut out back) to this Bad Romance shirt (a.k.a the perfect partner for those slasher shorts) we’re doing the time warp this year.
Finally, no festival is complete without a bit of rock star ‘tude (yeah, we said ‘tude). With MINKPINK’s infamous F**K Yeah tee doing the talking, and Evil Twin’s galactic print shorts- you’ll be quite literally seeing stars.
As ever, we’ve been keeping a beady eye on some super cool Brit ladies sporting our fave brands from MINKPINK to the bad-ass Bitching & Junkfood. Think Charli XCX in those cheeky wink shorts in her latest vid, Rosie from #MIC wrapped up in MINKPINK and only the most awesome bloggers in our new MINKPINK and Evil Twin seasonal drops (yes, that Cara D top has landed)…
If there’s anything more exciting then the sun FINALLY coming out, it’s logging on to discover our faves Bitching & Junkfood have just started popping their RAD Spring Summer range online- and we are suitably excited, let me tell you that. From cutesy pinafore dresses, grungy dungarees, plaid shirts and 90s fishnet (all cropped, of course)- we’re more than happy to start blowing our pay cheque today, as we can tell it’s going to be a hit. Shop the new collection HERE (and shop each look by clicking the photo)!
Here at Out + About, in order to beat the post Christmas blues (or January blues) we recommend a serious session of online sale shopping. Of course, being the kind people we are- we’ve selected the very best of the lot in order for you to pick up only the cream of the crop and have yourself a very happy 2013 wardrobe. With some incredible mark downs both over at ASOS and Urban Outfitters, it’d certainly be rude not to. Cards at the ready and happy shopping!
Last week OUT + ABOUT went to New York to show the new Bitching and Junkfood collection to some of the hottest US retailers including Nasty Gal, Urban Outfitters US and Miss KL. The Bitching brand went down very well stateside and team OUT + ABOUT had an amazing time in the city. We managed to spot one of our other brands MINKPINK ruling it in Urban Outfitters! Watch this space for more news on the Bitching and Junkfood US takeover!
The best way to console yourself about the end of summer is to starting buying your AW wardrobe. We’ve chosen some of our favourite pieces from our brands on Urban Outfitters – from a soft pop colour MINKPINK knit to Bitching and Junkfood’s studded dress – Autumn dressing doesn’t have to be boring this season.
