LOOK OF THE DAY
for today's look of the day I decided to go with a rather bright approach given that the weather forecast said it's going to be a gloomy day. I decided to go with bright trousers and one of this seasons must have trend which is the motif sweater trend which coincidentally is also part of a mother trend which the sporty gym derived trend. Here I made showcase the trend in a more polished and prim pairing rather than going for a literal take on the trend.
We start off with a pink plaid button up by River Island paired with bright pink skinny trousers by H&M. I buttoned the shirt all the way to the top for a polished feel and belted the skinnies with my Vintage Salvatore Ferragamo tan woven leather waist belt which is a hand me down piece. I then layered over the brightly printed Minnie Mouse pull over by Forever 21, and to fully achieve that prim and polished look I'm going for I added a boyfriend style boxy blazer by H&M over the pull over. As the button up peaks out up top and likewise with the sleeves it almost gives the look that subtlety of a collegiate feel.
On bottom, I went with my trusty nude patent lace up oxfords by New Look to give the look that chic factor as patent oxfords are dressier than you normal average oxfords.
For accessories, I went for a mixed jewellery choice in the sense of "category" as the majority are more sweet and romantic while a a couple evoke edginess. I added studded collar tips on the collar of the shirt to give it an edgy feel and then added a floral necklace which is a gifted piece to sweeten the look and match with the motif sweater followed by a simple analogue watch by ASOS along with a bunch of rings by Topshop. We finish off the accessory department with a multi coloured swan brooch by Forever 21.
Lastly, the bag I chose to go with today's pairing is structured and brings sophistication to the look as a whole and that is none other than my Primark studded structured flip clasp handbag. Just to throw another trend top handle bags are also a hit for AW13.
That's it for today's LOTD and until the next time...FASHION IS THE DICTATOR OF TASTE...XOXO...
