The Doodle Trend: What You Should Be Wearing SS18
Today I want to talk with all of you about one of my favorite trends of SS18: the doodle trend. I think this trend is so much fun and original. It's like all of the little faces I used to draw in my math notebooks during school when I was bored (which was most of math class) have decided to appear on clothes. Unfortunately, this Asos oversized doodle shirt is completely sold out; I actually managed to snag the last one left of any size in February. However, I have selected plenty of doodle/sketch pieces for you that are all lovely and have a similar concept.
1) Monki Doodle Shirt
This shirt is like a more fitted version of mine as pictured above except in reverse. I love how it's a dark blue with white doodle figures, reminding me of a blackboard but more elegant. This would look lovely with white trousers and a red handbag and lipstick for a peppy pop of color.

2) Monki Doodle Oversized
Essentially, this is the same as the shirt above just in an oversized dress form. This would look cute belted and some white boots for Spring. I'd keep the rest of the outfit simple so the dress takes center stage for a fun statement.

3) Monki Body Loving Slogan
For those of you wanting a casual piece, this tee is super cute and has a positive slogan. I also love that the design is in red. I love adding a pop of red in any outfit to go with my usual red lipstick. I picture this with a pair of black and white polkadot culottes for a casual-chic look. For a more simple outfit, this would look great with just a simple pair of jeans and white canvas trainers.

4) Monki Black on Black
This is perhaps my favorite of the bunch because I'm such a fan of mixing and matching. The ruching on the sleeves adds a touch of 30s/40s glamor. I am also very intrigued by the idea that you have to be close up to see the details. It is like this co-ord has a fun little secret. It also makes it super easy to pair with anything without having to worry about the outfit looking too busy. I think that even after the doodle trend fades, this co-ord will still stay fashionable because it is more subtle. Paired together, I picture this with some lace-up espadrille wedges and, of course, my favorite combo, red lipstick and a matching red bag.

5) Asos Doodle Tee
Here is another more casual style. This time in simple black and white but with a bigger and bolder design. I'd pair this for a simple black and white look with black jeans and booties. This one is selling out quickly so make sure you grab one fast!

1) Ebay Face Earrings
You probably have seen these on my Instagram @rhoyally_chic. I have looked at quite a few face earrings but I think these look the best and they're sooooo cheap! I paid under £3 for them with free shipping. Crazy, I know. I think the winky face lends them a sense of cheekiness in an otherwise sophisticated pair of earrings...and I just love the eyelash detailing. They also have a pair of hands which are also cute.

3) Asos Silver Asymmetrical
These are very simple are unique. This is for the bolder girl who wants to be a bit different.

4) Asos Gold-Plated Face Earrings
These earrings are gold plated so they are definitely of a higher quality (but also a substantially higher price compared to my eBay ones). So it depends on how long you want them to last and how much you're willing to spend on earrings. However, they also look super cute and love the Picasso-esque style nose. Plus there is also a matching necklace!

Hopefully, there is something in this list for everyone who wants to try out this trend. If you are looking for artwork in your home, I found two artists who are available for commissions so you can bring the minimalist doodle trend from your clothes and into your homes as well! Check out both @emilycatonthick and @christianespangsberg on Instagram to see their amazing work.
