carly musleh fashion blogger In my last outfit post here I mentioned that I was preferring a more simpler style, this includes a more muted colour palette. I've always loved black, probably stemming from being a makeup artist and working in Space NK, as we all wore this colour head to toe. Black is timeless and easy to wear but I also love white and grey, whilst white is fresher with a pure and sporty vibe I have been attracted to grey, which to me feels less formal than black, it's casual yet polished.

And also the fish tail braid, which many  seem to love!

CARLY MUSLEH Lately my style has evolved, it's more simplistic, less trend lead and suits my frame. As I'm quite petite certain things look pretty terrible on me, like the A- line skater dresses that look incredible on other people, oh and those dropped-waist dresses, love 'em but they also look hideous on me. I prefer tighter fits like skinny jeans, cigarette trousers or pencil skirts and then maybe include some volume in other items. This look was more timeless with the polo neck and trousers complete with trench coat and heels for added height. Makeup and hair was kept simple, with slight detailing like the heavy liner and messy fish tail braid. (I used some clip in extensions and will do an updated video soon!)
