In our next installment of Style Series, we’re meeting up with sisters and London-based fashion bloggers Olivia and Alice. Renowned for their modern take on maximalism as well as their love for all things bold and bright, the Instagram duo are here to reveal their most-coveted pieces of AW18, and tell us more about their favourite trends, style hacks and more in our exclusive Q&A…
How would you describe your usual style?
Fun, bright and wearable. We like to mix high street and designer together, as well as classic and trend-driven pieces.
What are your favourite pieces from the shoot and why?
The blanket scarves. There’s nothing better than having something to wrap yourself up in for autumn/winter, ready to fight the chill. The gorgeous patterns and colours also mean that your whole outfit can be made by just that one item, plus we love how chunky and soft they are.
What are your top tips for wearing rainbow brights?
Don’t panic or feel that you have to make the rest of your outfit plain. Pick out a colour in the rainbow and match another item of clothing with it.
Checks are a big trend for AW18 – how will you be wearing them?
We are so excited for this trend and fully intend on wearing it from head to toe. We love wearing checked suits right now and clashing it with a different checked bag.
Who is your celebrity style muse and why?
There are a lot of people out there whose style we admire, whether that be our mum, friends or other bloggers, big and small. Right now, we love the German bloggers Xenia Adonts and Caro Daur – they style the latest trends in such a chic, effortless way. If we did have to go with celebrities, we’d have to say Mary-Kate and Ashley – is that too obvious?!
What’s your ultimate style hack?
Don’t forget to add accessories to an outfit – we don’t feel complete without a great pair of earrings or some layered necklaces. Headwear is also set to be a huge trend – think berets, baker boy hats and beanies or, for something more subtle, hair slides.
