London-based Coral Manson works as a part-time marketing manager for a well-known consignment store, and documents her outfits on Instagram, and her blog, Stripey Coral. She is a trendy dresser who likes patterns and embraces colour. Our blogger regularly sports midaxis, is fond of a flowy dress, and looks amazing in flares. Her trademark bright red lipstick and short blonde bob add pizzazz to everything she wears.

Coral loves a midaxi, and this one in eye-catching yellow and black leopard print makes quite the statement. The fitted wrap-style top part and deep V-neck create structure. So does the high-low hemline because it shows a bit of leg. The on-trend puff sleeves and tiered layers of the bottom part add flouncy volume and fun swoosh factor. The crisp white sneakers bring a Sporty Luxe touch. Our blogger’s bag is a mix of casual — the wicker part, and dressy — the unusual white pearl handles. A gold pendant and bracelets add subtle shiny polish. Bright red lipstick make the vibrant leopard print stand out even more.

Our blogger dresses up a simple tee and jeans look with a fluid-fit peacoat in timeless camel. The tailored shoulder line adds structure. Wearing the coat unbuttoned shows part of the preppy black and white Breton tee. Coral has paired her black skinny jeans with high-contrast chunky white sneakers that echo the white in the top. The coat’s hip-skimming length showcases more of the jeans, and makes our blogger’s legs look a mile long. The gold-toned patterned clutch adds subtle bling. Black sunnies match the jeans, and Coral’s go-to bright red lippy is the sassy finishing touch.

A WOW dress for a black-tie event. The navy with luxurious sheen looks gorgeous with Coral’s short blonde ‘do and complexion. The form-fitting top part accentuates our blogger’s waist and creates structure. The bottom part waves out in an A-line silhouette, and adds dressy airiness with the beautiful lace material. The criss-cross satin banding where one material transitions into the next prevents a cutting horizontal line. Coral’s textured white gold clutch and dressy high-heeled sandals in matching metallic add extra punch. A gold pendant fills in the V-neckline of the dress. Large gold hoop earrings and bright red lipstick complete this stunning party look.

This is a marvelous example of Angie’s Full-Length Flares & Sneakers outfit formula, and one of the best flared jeans looks I’ve seen in a long time! They are a perfect fit, and the mid-blue works so well with the blues and white of her fun sweater. The subtle A-line silhouette of the sweater echoes the flared denim silhouette. The striped cuffs and colour-blocked segments are delightfully playful. Also note how the colour-blocking is cleverly repeated in Coral’s multi-toned sneakers. The shorter full length of the jeans is on-trend and looks fresh. Big, white-rimmed sunnies add flair and echo the white in the rest of this casual look. Coral finishes things off with her trademark red lip.

Coral’s black skinnies come out to play again in this hard-edged look with rocker vibe. She’s paired them with an untucked tomato red turtleneck, an impactful colour combo! As the third piece, she’s picked a tailored black leather biker jacket with silver hardware which, together with the footwear, provides the rock ’n’ roll edge. The pointy-toe ankle boots with big buckles and visible grommets adds to the vibe, and lengthen the leg line because they continue the black of the jeans without a horizontal cutting line. Our blogger’s red crossbody matches her red sweater and lippy in a delightful way. The guitar strap adds a bit of pattern, and fits the rocker vibe. For extra warmth, Coral throws on a cream teddy coat that softens the look and creates cosy textural interest.

Another day, another unique animal print dress! This one stands out because of the unusual mustard zebra print. The midi dress has a slight A-line silhoutte and gets extra fun and flouncy at the bottom with the tiered part that creates lots of movement. Its mock turtleneck collar works well with the biker style silhouette of the moto jacket. The tailored silhouette creates structure, and leave it to Coral to find a moto in striking mustard that matches her dress. Trendy white sneakers with gold and black accents add sporty crispness. The white satchel with long tassels is an eye-catcher, and brings boho-lite nonchalance to the mix.
