Steal Her Style: Riverdale’s Toni Topaz

At Missy we think Toni Topaz is an unsung hero in Riverdale – sassy, tough, and takes no prisoners, she’s pretty bad ass. Not only is her personality pretty awesome so is her style!

Steal Her Style: Riverdale's Toni Topaz

 

The gals of Riverdale may not have the most wearable wardrobe for A/W, but Toni Topaz’s is pretty great for this season. We’ve put together some of our fav looks of hers for you to recreate!

Look 1

Toni Topaz is all about the plaid! We love this Nasty Gal plaid shirt paired with ripped jeans and a band tee! If you’re more into dresses this super cute Nasty Gal number is perfect for layering this A/W!

Look 2

Are you even Toni Topaz if you don’t have a leather jacket? Pair with these fab New Look tartan pants and biker boots for a very Toni look! We really love these studded boots from Boohoo, they give an edgy look worthy of any South Side Serpent!

Look 3

When she’s not rocking her leather jacket, Toni is repping a denim jacket! Toni is a fan of a roll neck, like this red leopard print one from New Look. Add that edginess Toni encapsulates with this faux leather skirt! The perfect accessory for Toni? A bandana of course! Steal Her Style: Riverdale's Toni Topaz

What do you think of Toni’s look? Will you be stealing her style this A/W Season?

Steal The Look: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Costumes

Image curtsey of Netflix

Hands up if you spent the weekend binge-watching Chilling Adventures of Sabrina! You can’t see, but our hands are frantically waving right now.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina costumes were everything we could have hoped for and more. The town of Greendale is meant to feel like it’s in eternal autumn – which sounds like heaven to us! And the clothes that Sabrina wears reflect that. Red is most definitely her colour and in most scenes in the show she is seen wearing something red.

The show is of course based off of the famed Sabrina comics,which was based in the 1960’s and the show really reflects its origins with a mix between modern and vintage fashion.

Our Steal The Look: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before was very popular. So of course we just had to do a Sabrina one. We took two of our favourite looks from the show and tell you how to recreate the looks. We’ve also included some additional items at the bottom of the post that we spotted in other senses in the show.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Costumes

Of course the iconic Sabrina head band was a must in almost every scene (move over Blair Waldorf!). Monki have a headband that is identical to Sabrina’s one.

We tracked down a lace collar for only €1.50 on Ali Express. It really dresses up this plain High Neck Long Sleeved Swing Dress from Boohoo and creates the perfect Sabrina look. Pair with tights and flat brogues for the ultimate chic look.

If you’re wondering what lipstick Sabrina is wearing in the final scene, you’re in luck because we know! Sabrina wears Christian Louboutin Very Prive Velvet Matte and Kevyn Aucoin The Flesh Tone Lip Pencil in Bloodrose, which are super pricey but wow it looks amazing with Sabrina’s new ice-blonde hair! (mild spoiler alert!)

 

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Costumes

 

One of the constants throughout the series is Sabrina’s love of her red coat. We found a similar style in Mango, but Boohoo and Bershka also have some lovely options. Sabrina is very on trend with her rust coloured skirt which she pairs with a burgundy polo neck. We found this bodysuit on Boohoo, which will work great with a skirt or black jeans. Sabrina is also a big fan of the practical loafer and brogue. And of course her trusty red satchel. Cambridge Satchel Co. have one that we are coveting.

 

Which of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina costumes was your favourite?

Layering, The Answer To Winter Fashion!

It can be hard to know exactly what to wear during Autumn/Winter in Ireland. Sometimes it’s freezing, sometimes it’s warm, and most of the time the day starts out chilly only to hit afternoon and be boiling!!

We here at Missy have found the answer to dressing for this A/W season, layering.

Layering allows you to keep warm whilst also looking great. You can then strip off any excess layers should the day get warmer. We’ve put together some looks to inspire your layering!

 

Look 1.

First, this faux fur bomber jacket deserves a special shoutout. How amazing is it? It’s so versatile for A/W!

Back to the full look… this forest green pinafore is very on trend this season. We’ve paired it with a long sleeve white tee, and the amazing bomber for a very fall inspired look that’ll keep you nice and toasty!

Look 2.

Take a summer-y dress like this snake skin Topshop one and pop a black long sleeve tee underneath. Voilà, a perfect winter outfit! We paired it with a faux leather jacket for an extra layer, and these fab Public Desire boots!

Look 3.

We loved the Public Desire boots and faux leather jacket so much we had to pop them into this layered look!

Leopard print isn’t going anywhere this season, so why not add it to the layering trend with this jumper? Corduroy is also very “in” this AW. We layered this corduroy burgundy shirt underneath for a bit of texture. Pop on a pair of frayed jeans to complete the look!

 

What do you think of the layering trend? Will you be wearing it this Autumn/Winter season?

A witch is probably the most done thing when it comes to Halloween costumes, but we really like this version; it’s glam but still a bit freaky looking.

21 Things To Have In Your A/W Wardrobe

21 Things To Have In Your A/W Wardrobe
Now that summer’s over its time to start thinking about your autumn/winter wardrobe. Just give us all of the coats, hats and scarves, please and thank you!
We’re very conscious of the fact that not everyone has the money to go out and buy a brand new wardrobe (us included!). The thing about fashion is that things don’t really change that much, so chances are you have a lot of this in your wardrobe already. And as always, Penneys cover all the trends going. So, consider this more of an autumn/winter inspo list with our top picks thrown into the mix.
If you are purchasing, boots are definitely the area to try stretch your budget as much as possible. Dr. Martens are very popular at the moment but you really can’t go wrong with the classic Chelsea Boot and Topshop do a great affordable option.
Teddy coats are everywhere again this year, which is great news if you invested in one last year. Penneys have a great one floating around at the moment for €35, but you know yourself that you need to be quick when it comes to those sort of things in Penneys! Vila have a fab option, but we kind of adore this Lilac Teddy coat from Boohoo.
The accessory of choice this autumn/winter is definitely a silk scarf. They’re such a great way to add a pop of colour to any outfit and you can style them in so many ways, draped over your shoulders, as a headband or tied onto a bag, we could keep going!
Take a look at some of our other picks and let us know what your favourite is…

4 Key Trends For Autumn 2018

4 Key Trends For Autumn 2018

It’s hard to believe that a few short weeks ago we were basking in the summer heat and now here we are, freezing cold. There’s no denying that autumn is well and truly here, but that means that it’s time to dig out the warm clothes.

Here are 4 Key Trends For Autumn 2018…

White Boots

We really weren’t sure about white boots initially, but now we are now convinced that an outfit isn’t complete without them. Fueling our obsession is Rochelle Humes who has teamed with New Look to create her own edit of clothes. Rochelle is obviously a genuine fan because we have spotted her wearing these boots so many times. We need them right now!

 

Button Up Skirts

We’re pretty sure that you can’t go into any shop right now without seeing button skirts, and we’re not mad about that because we love them! They’re honestly so versatile. Black will literally go with anything, but we’re also loving this rust colour skirt which just screams autumn to us. Bonus points for corduroy skirts!

 


The Cardigans

Forget sweater weather, it’s all about the cardigan this autumn/winter. The 80s vibes are real right now with the return of the bobble cardigan. I mean, we weren’t alive in the 80’s, but we’ve heard that these were all the rage then! This is the perfect way to stay cozy as the temperature drops, but we also love how they add a splash of colour to an outfit. This Misguided cardigan seems like the perfect solution to the dilemma of what to wear to keep yourself warm when you’re going “out out”.

Pinafores

Pinafores are still huge for autumn winter. If you invested in a denim one you’re all set. We love how you can dress them down with a pair of Vans and a long-sleeved top during the day, but dress them up with boots for an evening with the girls.

How We’re Styling Our Fave New Look Coats This A/W

 

How We're Styling Our Fave New Look Coats This A/W Season

 

We at Missy love when Autumn/Winter rolls around because it means one thing – coats! Sure, the evenings are longer and school is back in full swing but there’s something about a nice jacket that helps ease the blow. If there’s one place that be relied on for great A/W wear, it’s New Look. We’ve picked 3 of our fave coats/jackets, and shown you how we’d style them!

How fab is this check camel coat? As soon as we saw it we knew we had to have it! Pinafores are also everywhere this season, we love how different this green faux leather one is from New Look.

 

How We're Styling Our Fave New Look Coats This A/W Season

 

Is it just us or are there serious Stranger Things vibes from this outfit? As soon as we put it together we thought “This is something Eleven or Max would wear.” To say we’re obsessed with this faux corduroy jacket is an understatement. It’s so versatile. We’ve styled it for a very casual look, but it would look cute with a dress and boots as well! The green from the long sleeve top contrasts nicely with the mustard, separated by the denim of the dungarees so it’s not too intense!

 

How We're Styling Our Fave New Look Coats This A/W Season

 

We are so so happy that Teddy Bear coats have made a comeback this season! They are possibly the comfiest things we’ve ever worn! New Look stocks this coat in a few colours, but the pink is defo our favourite! The burgundy of the shirt we’ve styled it with really makes the colour pop, and it’s a great way to link pink into a fall wardrobe. Everyone should have a pair of brown boots for Autumn/Winter, throw them on with anything from denim skirts, like this one, to jeans and they really make an outfit.

What do you think of our picks? How would you style your faves? Let us know in the comments!

Fashion Update: Brown Is Back!!

You might be thinking we here at Missy have gone slightly bonkers brown is back…? Was it ever really here? You’re probably too young to remember, heck we’re too young to remember! But according to the parentals, brown was big in the 70’s, and now it’s back in all it’s 2018 glory! Well, that’s according to the big time fashion editors but who are we to argue with them?

When you think about it, it’s actually a nice neutral colour that can be mixed and matched with a lot of items you probably already own. The leopard print trend that looks fit to stay for all of this A/W season, would look great paired with it.

Want to jazz up a plain jeans and a jumper look? Brown boots is where it’s at! There’s no need to go all That 70’s Show and wear it head to toe in varying shades.

We absolutely love the burnt orange colour “tobacco” – how cute is this jacket and jumper dress?
