Introducing Style Series. Over the course of the next month, we’ll be inviting some of our favourite influencers to curate a hand-picked edit of their new season must-haves – and Helina Mar is first in line. From AW18’s key trends to style hacks, here’s what the fashion blogger and content creator had to say…
How would you describe your usual style?
It can be quite eclectic and I like to mix it up – think sporty, smart, boho or even grunge. Either way, I like to keep it casual, practical and comfortable. I hate being too cold or wearing uncomfortable shoe so I tend to keep my outfits simple and classic, and let my accessories do all the work.
What are your favourite pieces from the shoot and why?
All of the jewellery pieces are gorgeous. They look lovely layered together.
Layering jewellery is a great way to create an individual look – what is your favourite way to wear the trend?
I like layering dainty, delicate pieces together, whether that’s stacking fine rings or necklaces. They can really change up your whole look.
What are your top tips for wearing animal print?
Let the print be the main feature of your outfit. Or, if you’re feeling brave, wear it with a bright, contrasting colour.
Who is your celebrity style muse and why?
I wouldn’t say I have one particular celebrity style muse. I much prefer going online or looking at street style for inspiration.
What’s your ultimate style hack?
Wearing headbands and Alice bands. Having a fringe can be a blessing when you’ve forgotten to do your brows but bad hair days are a no-no. Hairbands always save me when my fringe doesn’t co-operate and they also make a strong statement if you experiment with different colours and prints.
