Today we’re checking back in with Scotland-based Amber McNaught of Forever Amber, whom we first featured in July 2014. Since then she’s had a baby, and continues to have fun with fashion and do her own thing. Her style is as bold, Modern Classic and polished as ever. And she is still rocking polka dots and long red locks.
Amber dresses up a casual T-shirt dress with a Modern Classic blazer. A T-shirt dress is an easy pull-on-and-go option. The midi length is on-trend, and the black and white stripe adds visual interest to the look. Popping over a tailored blazer in white as “the third piece” adds crisp polish. Our blogger’s white sneakers add a Sporty Luxe vibe, while the straw bag with happy slogan gives it a relaxed Summer vibe. Amber’s go-to bright red lipstick and equally bright nail polish are the jazzy finishing touches.
The biker jacket in a rich shade of cognac complements Amber’s stunning red locks perfectly. She’s wearing blue skinny jeans with side zippers and a cropped cable-knit sweater that lengthens the leg line. The faux suede jacket trimmed with faux fur adds luxe drama and is the star of the show. Our blogger’s kept the rest of the outfit very simple with block-heeled suede booties that match the jacket, and a textured satchel that also echoes the sassy jacket and Amber’s hair. Adding big sunnies and red lippy and she is ready to go.
Our blogger’s love of polka dots continues unabashedly. The bias-cut skirt in striking forest green swooshes elegantly, while the cream sweater picks up the colour of the polka dots. The vertical self stripes on the sweater and the above-the-hip length help lengthen the leg line when wearing a midi skirt with calf-length booties. Opting for nude-for-her suede and wearing matching hosiery does the same. The laces on the stiletto booties give them a charming Victorian vibe. A white satchel with gold hardware and cat’s eye sunnies are the accessories of choice.
I love how the soft pinks soften the harsher black and make Amber’s red hair pop even more. She’s created a column of colour by pairing a black slogan sweatshirt with black ankle-length jeans. The white with black sneakers echo the colours of the sweatshirt and contribute to the casual vibe. Our blogger then dresses up the outfit with a tailored classic trench in a beautiful blush pink. Her big bow bag in a slightly less saturated shade of pink adds even more polish. Glam oversized sunnies and coral lipstick work brilliantly with the rest of the outfit.
Another super fun polka dot skirt, this one in a stretchy jersey fabric that’s lovely for warm Summer days. Our just under 5’4″ blogger went with the petite for this particular skirt and it is still a “true” midi on her. She’s paired it with a simple white tee that she’s knotted so that it comes up just under the waist. This creates a long lean line. The white Converse sneakers make a second appearance, and pick up the white in the skirt and tee. Red lipstick, black sunglasses and a fun fedora finish off the look.
Retro preppy in red, blue, and white for a day at the seaside. Amber is sporting a lightweight ribbed sweater that just hits the waistband of the trousers, giving it a tucked effect. The fabulous tapered blue and white gingham trousers are ankle length, which draws extra attention to Amber’s dainty red ballet flats. They’re such a cheerful addition to the blue and white, and match her trademark red lipstick to perfection. Cat’s eye sunglasses are all that’s needed to complete the look.
I can’t wait to hear what you think of Amber’s beautiful outfits. Let us know in the comments, and be sure to check out her blog where you can browse the rest of her outfits.
