|"LOTD :: Halloween Edition - Fresh Prince Hillary Banks"|
LOOK OF THE DAY
HAPPY Tuesday! 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 four of the Faireycakesz Halloween Chic Edition and today's feature is inspired by the Fresh Prince of Bel Air's Hillary Banks. She is known for her hats and basic base with bright pops or coordinating ensembles. Today I am channeling that with an inspired look putting in a casual semi punk twist but using a black printed tee as supposed to a plain black top. We start off with my Urban Outfitters little black dress tee paired with black coated denim skinnies by New Look. I belted the skinnies with my black leather waist belt which is a Vintage Salvatore Ferragamo. I kept the tee hanging out to give it that effortless casual feel while still exuding a level of edginess. I the added on an electric blue plush tailored blazer by ZARA Man for that bring pop of colour. Finally for outerwear, I went with my grey long blended wool overcoat to finish off the look which if I may say so myself paired with an all-black base gives it a rather punkie look.
An alternative for this look is to swap the printed tee for a plain black top and the skinnies for a peplum pencil skirt add big voluminous curly hair and you my dear will be a modern day Hillary Banks for Halloween.
On bottom, I went with my black buckled ankle booties by New Look to give the entire head to toe black base to make the blazer a focal point and hero piece.
For accessories, I opted to go with cool toned jewellery pieces to match the cool electric blue hue of the blazer. I have on a simple curved bar necklace by H&M followed by a simple analogue watch by Sekonda and a bunch of silver rings by H&M and Topshop. I then added a pop of red via an diamanté apple brooch by Accessorize. A Hillary Banks inspired outfit is not complete without a hat so I have on a black pork pie hat by Topshop.
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 offsets the bright blue hue of the blazer which creates an awesome colour block effect.
That's it for today’s LOTD and until the next time…FASHION IS THE DICTATOR OF TASTE! ...XOXO...
