Shop our latest Manchester fashion film with Brand Attic
Manchester’s spring/summer social calendar is already heaving. No sooner did we recover from the ‘Beast from the East’s' sub-zero temperatures did we begin fantasising about pink drinks in open air bars and long warm nights.
Then there’s the all-important wardrobe update. From popper pants to polka dot dresses, we’re going bold this upcoming season.
In our latest fashion lookbook, we’ve collaborated with Manchester-based online outfitters Brand Attic to bring you day-to-dinner looks to try out in the city and beyond.
Brand Attic are offering 30% off to Body Confidential readers until Thursday 15 March. Simply fill your basket and enter code 'BODY30' at the checkout.
We’re talking a millennial pink suit and converse for a leisurely walk about town, red bell-bottom trousers and bohemian florals for Northern Quarter brunching at Fress, and all-out sophisticated glamour for drinks at Alston Bar and Beef.
Whether your style is Northern Quarter edgy or Spinningfields sophisticated (or a combination of both), Brand Attic have a wealth of fashion labels to choose from. And while we wouldn’t be so brazen as to call the city our ‘catwalk’, Manchester provides ample opportunity for fashion-forward moments - so why not dress for it? From brunch to drinks, shop the looks below.
Daytime - St Peter's Square
Fatime: Ask any Mancunian caught in unpredictable weather, layering is key for any springtime look. Mix textures and lengths while staying comfortable with embellished boyfriend jeans (£26), a wool blend coat (£55) and an oversized jumper (£22) worn over a pinstriped dress (£28). Add a metallic brogue (£25) for an extra fun element.
Katie: We're still not over millennial pink and modern suiting seen throughout 2017 (shop the tailored trousers here, blazer coming soon - shop similar), not to mention the ever-popular slogan t-shirt (£14). Pair them together with converse and you have a confident, fashion-forward look for daytime.
Brunch at Fress, Northern Quarter
Katie: Here's an outfit that's both 'Instagrammable' and entirely wearable for Sunday brunch club in the Northern Quarter. The red popper trousers (£38) are sure to make a statement alongside a Victorian-style blouse with beautiful lace detailing (£31). Add a faux-leather biker jacket (£41) and patent boots to give the look extra attitude.
Dinner and drinks at Alston bar and beef, Corn Exchange
Fatime: As the weather get warmer the hemlines get shorter. For a night out in the city, whip out this failsafe little high-neck number (£48) with sassy Art Deco style earrings (£7). Strap on some barely-there metallics heels (shop them in gold and silver - £26)
Katie: Polka dots are all over the high street at present. Stay right on trend and still sophisticated with this midi-length dress (£35) paired with a fun-loving patent jacket (£42), faux-suede platform heels (£30) and metallic tassel pink earrings (£5).
