Spotlight on Jazzabelles Diary
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
Take a roll call of the season’s biggest trends (Pastels? present. Peplums? present. Prints? present!) and you’ll understand why this week’s spotlight, JazzabellesDiary, caught our eye. A fashion blogger and self-confessed colourphobe, Jazmine proves that you don’t have to abandon your personal style principles to look up-to-the-minute-hot. Using her black minimalistic wardrobe to anchor S/S12’s pretty patterns and candy colours, her Looks make for even more sartorial splendour than the catwalks themselves.
I usually stick to dark and neutral colours, but with this outfit I thought I’d take a chance and step out of my comfort zone. I based the look around candy pink jeans - a key trend for S/S'12 - and teamed them with a beautiful pair of deep burgundy heels and a matching jumper. I got the clutch bag from my local car boot sale for just a pound - it's a great find!

Maxi skirt at ASOS: I love the simplicity of sheer maxi skirts, they are so darn easy to style and look ever so elegant.
Vintage silk top at Question-air: A classic black silk top is such a transitional piece that can easily be styled for day or evening.
