Spotlight on Jadeelise
Peek into the fashionable minds of up-and-coming members, as each week we shine a spotlight on an inspiring individual with noteworthy style.
Meet Our Spotlight
With all the amazing looks uploaded to Fashion Finder everyday, frankly we're spoilt for choice when it comes to spotting fash-fabulous stars of the future. But when this week's Spotlight, Jade of fashion blog These Days, popped up on our live feed wearing A/W's hottest shade, we couldn't help but get excited. Her take on 'Oxblood for Fall' is by far our favourite of the season; it's all-out in your face colour, paired back with a simple yet kooky take on the classic blouse. We're under no allusion that this girl has style.
Oxblood for Fall
The weather has finally cooled down for autumn and I was finally able to wear my new favourite oxblood pants - which I shopped from ASOS! I wanted to pair the deep berry colour with a beanie I've been hoarding in my closet for a while and a new lip colour I bought. This is the perfect look for all occasions, mainly because the boots have a heel but they're still comfortable. I love this look because it has an autumn feel to it.

Missguided Leather Jacket: Contrasting sleeves are so much fun and I'm glad they are still on-trend. Jackets like this are great for layering.
ASOS Chunky Jumper: Structured sweaters with a high collar are always welcome in my wardrobe!
ASOS Skater Skirt: I love a pretty skater skirt, and this one just flows perfectly. I love the princess, fairy-tail vibe it has!

Q & A:
What are your favourite trends for A/W’12?
Animal sweaters are a fun trend, I pretty much adore anything knitted. I think sweaters in general are always a great A/W trend, and knits always tend to stay in style.
Who would be your dream make-over?
I’d like to style anyone who was willing to try fun and different things...someone willing to go out of their comfort zone a little bit.
What are your wardrobe workhorses?
I don't think I could live without my blouses or sweaters; they are great staples in everyone’s closet. They're perfect to layer with and so easy to mix up your look.
How would your friends describe your style?
I hope they would say stylish, but like many other fashion forward people I mix it up pretty often. Sometimes I want to wear leather pants, other days I want to wear a princess dress.
Fave fashion reads?
You've gotta read Luxirare
, of course! It's my fave magazine online, all about fashion and food. Park & Cube
is another favourite as well.
