Well I have definitely rekindled my deep love for darker colours again after pretty much refusing them last winter, okay refusing is definitly an exaggeration, what I mean to say is I was far more into colour last winter. It can be tricky styling darker colours together as each piece can easily all seem melt into each other and end up looking like one big dark blur. Breaking up that blur can be done by either layering different textures or creating interesting length play, it's all about creating depth. An annoying thing about winter is that it can bring very dark and dull days even early on and it was just unfortunate that I decided I was wearing this outfit, on one of those dark and depressing days and the result of the photos wasn't great but I hope you still enjoy them.
Anyway on to the look, You might of seen these trousers before, they were bought on sale about four years ago from All Saints for a ridiculously cheap price but the only thing was I found them very difficult to style due to the way they hung, that was until I realised that I just need to belt them up higher in order for them to hang right. I love that they are mens inspired and have this baggy yet still kinda tailored look. With this outfit I wanted to contrast those androgynous tones in an ever so slight way, so I teamed my Paul & joe sister floral blouse with them, which admittedly is a bit cold for the winter but then that only gave me more reason to layer. And when it came to layering I also wanted to create a bit of texture play and so I layered my gilet over my leather, a combination I couldn't get enough of last year and am certainly still loving this year, works every time!
I finished of with my Flatform Grenson brogues and a pair of navy ankle socks. Also this Topshop beanie that I am in love with but sadly got stolen by a some lowlife bitches ( I know thats not very graceful but in this instance I'm allowing myself to let of a little steam) when I went to London, luckily I still got a few looks out of it that are still to be seen on the blog. I could rant and rave about this but i'll leave it at that. I just hope they realise karma is a bigger bitch!
Okay I have wound myself up and need to go and chill. Hope you like the look lovelies. Thanksss
