"CiTY MiX"


Happy Thursday! To all the Fashionista's of the world.

For today's look of the day, I decided to go with a mix of different textures to create a City Chic look that is edgy, casual yet polished but still has that effortless feel.

We start off with a plain v neck tee by H&M paired with pleather skinny trousers by Primark.  I tucked one side of the tee into the left pocket of the pleather trousers to give it that cool effortless feel and belted the trouser with my Vintage Salvatore Ferragamo hand me down two toned leather waist belt.  As the tee is a little on the sheer side I have a nude vest underneath and layered over an outsized leopard printed cardigan by Primark.  For outerwear, I layered my faux shearling gilet with black leatherette trim tie - in waist belt by H&M over my Topshop black quilted moto leather jacket to give me that chic bohemian biker look.

On bottom, I wanted to create a streamlined silhouette for the bottom half of today's ensemble so I decided to go with my New Look black buckled ankle booties.  I tucked the ends of the trousers into the booties to create one long leggy silhouette and because of the texture of the trouser being similar to that of the booties it definitely gave me that streamlined silhouette I was going for.

For accessories, I went complete opposite from yesterday's minimal approach and went with layering necklaces and a handful of rings.  The layered necklaces are all from H&M while the rings are a mix of heirloom, Topshop and H&M.  An outfit would not be complete if there is no watch so like always I have on a simple analogue watch by ASOS.  Further into the rest of the accessories, as per the norm the brooch by Topshop is forever pinned into my faux shearling gilet; I have on my Aztec printed oversized scarf by H&M to keep me warm of course and finished off the accessories by wearing my black cat ear riding cap courtesy of ASOS.

Lastly, the chosen bag to go with today's pairing is the CĂ©line Luggage Tote dupe which is the cherry red faux crocodile Parisian.  I thought that the bag would be a fitting pop of colour in a very muted look.

That's it for today’s LOTD and until the next time…FASHION IS THE DICTATOR OF TASTE! ...XOXO...
