|"LOTD :: Halloween Edition - Shepherd Chic"|
LOOK OF THE DAY
HAPPY HUMP DAY! To all the Fashionista's of the world.
As Halloween is fast approaching I thought why don't I come up with outfit ideas that you can translate into a costume for the day itself, think of it as an inexpensive way to dress for the occasion as all you really need is what’s already in your wardrobe. For the next few days I will be showing you guys wardrobe inspired outfits that easily translates into a Halloween costume. [PS :: You don’t have to copy exactly what I have on as this is merely some sort of a guide.]
Day five of the Faireycakesz Halloween Chic Edition and today's feature is inspired by the Chic and Rustic Shepherds of the Himalayas. Of course I did not want to literal but rather inspired hence I styled the general look to be polished yet effortlessly casual. We start off with a plain white button up by River Island paired with oxblood coated denim moto skinnies by H&M. I buttoned the button up all the way to the top and tucked it into the skinnies to lend polishness; I then belted the skinnies with my tan concho style leather waist belt by River Island. To create an even more prim and polished look I layered over a burgundy quilted crew neck pull over by H&M. No shepherd look is complete without shearling so I have on my H&M faux shearling gilet with black leatherette trim tie-in waist belt to complete today’s inspired look.
An alternative for this look is a space age and all you need is a pin like the one I have below. This adds that "Star Trek" vibe which is both effortless and classic.

On bottom, I went with my tan tasselled slip on oxfords by New Look to firstly match the scarf and offset the burgundy and oxblood top and bottom piece and to add polished and primness.
For accessories, I as the look is burgundy oxblood majority I decided to opt for cool toned jewellery pieces via pearl collar tips by ASOS followed by a simple analogue watch by ASOS and a bunch of rings by Topshop and H&M. As per usual the black gem brooch on the gilet is a constant piece. I finished of the accessories by wearing my minimalistic tribal inspired scarf by H&M to both keep me warm and give that shepherd and earthy look to today's ensemble.
Lastly, the chosen bag to go with today's pairing is the JustFab.co.uk dupe for the Céline Luggage Tote which is the Parisian in cherry red. The bag matches perfectly with the deep oxblood hues of the overall and provides a chic elevation in a monochromatic stance.
That's it for today’s LOTD and until the next time…FASHION IS THE DICTATOR OF TASTE! ...XOXO...
