Now that The Blogger Network has CLOSED April sample campaigns, the fun can finally begin, or should we say, the styling begins!! We want to see your best blog posts showcasing all your fabulous samples that will make the #OOTD post or an exclusive first glimpse at an exciting up-and-coming new collection.
To give you an idea of what we're looking for, we've put together some great example posts from March sample campaigns, that we feel do the brands and their products justice.
First up is this baroque skirt from transformed it to suit her personal style! The leather jacket and chunky shoes took this look from girly to glam grunge. This post experiments with a mix of edginess and femininity, and works well with the chosen location, as the surroundings compliment this skirt beautifully!
The leather jacket and fedora hat seem to be popular styling choices for this skirt, as you will see in Rachel from Oh hey there rachel!'s post (below). However, rather than styling it up with heavier footwear, Rachel has chosen a more feminine approach by pairing it with small kitten heels, but maintains the alternative edge with the quirky metallic pink and photographing it on the streets of the fashion capital, London!
Next up is the Hybrid talleen straight leg tailored trousers, as seen on Jae from thisisjae's blog below, who has chosen to style hers with a smart casual approach. The hat and the blouse keep it fresh and feminine, however the brogue shoes add a masculine and edgier feel!
On the flip side, if a dressier outfit is more up your street, then why not keep it simple like Iris from loveirisblog and opt for a minimalistic cream dress as seen below, pairing it with Hollywood style sunglasses and an electric, colour popping accessory? Giving out those summery vibes!
Next up is this polka dot skirt from Blue Vanilla, as styled by Jessica from heartshapedbones blog. Tucking in a slogan tee and chucking on a pair of ankle boots keeps this look casual. If you're not into the 'girly' style, then you can shake it up with this alternative approach like Jessica and tailor it to your personal taste!
Jill from I Wear My Wages has also opted for the causal take on this Blue Vanilla checked shirt by pairing it with black skinnies and chunky white sandals. Grab your grey tote bag and jacket and you're good to go! What better way to stay stylish yet practical?
Natalia from natinstablog makes another appearance with her awesome Orelia post styling the gold two-bar chain ring. The chunky jewellery with this casual outfit gives it the kick its needs to stand out and a simple photograph, such as the one below, showcases the jewellery perfectly.
Last, but by no means least, we love the way Jennie, from jennieemma blog, has displayed her Orelia jewellery on this rustic back drop using only a simple white flower as a prop. This lets the jewellery take the spot light, whilst providing the perfect feminine touch!
