Three items every girl needs in her wardrobe are a black blazer, a white shirt and a trusted pair of black skinny jeans. Worn separately or altogether like so, they form the basis of any good outfit. Add a killer heel, pointed loafer or even a trainer and you can create so many versatile looks. As a fan of monochrome regardless of the trend or season, I do like to throw in a pop of colour and/or texture to keep things interesting. Here, I have paired this ensemble with quite possibly my favourite heels from Topshop. I love the snakeskin/reptile effect which is so on trend right now, not to mention the colour is gorgeous. What I particularly love about these heels though is the lace up detail which makes them a statement shoe in their own right and very designer-esque. That's enough rambling from me about how much I love the shirt, blazer, skinny jean and heels combo. Do these three items indeed form an essential part of your wardrobe? I would love to know!
I find that during the winter months I tend to gravitate to a darker colour palette for my everyday outfits. Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with a good black or grey combination...they do say when in doubt wear black but it can become all too easy to stick to the familiar. These Topshop shorts are quite the opposite of sombre. I was instantly drawn to the colours and thought they would compliment the camel, burgundy and navy hues already in my wardrobe. Paired here, with my oversized faux fur coat and over the knee boots, this outfit is definitely more suitable for winter. Equally, I cannot wait to pair these shorts with mules and a silk crop top this summer. I would love to know your thoughts on this outfit. Which item is your favourite?
Can you believe that this coat is from Missguided? It looks so premium and I love the oversized lapels which give it an added bit of character. Khaki is one of my favourite colours this season and I couldn't resist these Topshop peg trousers which I can pair with a trainer or these gorgeous mules which ahem are now in the sale.....go check them out here. Instead of pairing these trousers with a simple jersey tee or white shirt I decided to add a bit of texture in the form of this Topshop boucle sleeveless top. Very a la Chanel don't you think? You may have noticed a slight change in my photos, that's because the very talented Cristiana Malcica took these ones for me and I couldn't be happier with how they have turned out. I would love to know which is your favourite aspect of this outfit. See you in my next post.
Camel and burgundy have to be one of my all time favourite colour combinations. That combined with my love of tailoring meant that naturally, I was going to love these Missguided pieces that have recently made their way into my wardrobe. This sleeveless camel coat is perfect for layering and I've already worn my trusted leather jacket underneath to save me from the plummeting temperatures. As of late I have been pairing my more tailored outfits with a trainer but decided to throw a spanner in the works and add a heel. Not that I really need the added height but at £15 these Topshop heels were an absolute steal and I have been eager to show them off plus they are super comfy. I would love to know which piece is your favourite from this look.
