LOTD :: Polished Sport

"Polished Sport"


HAPPY HUMP DAY! To all the Fashionista's of the world.

For today's look of the day I wanted to create a look that is both casually sporty and polished.  Who says you can't mix both? Well probably a lot but I'm still going for it.  Today's is all about pairing your basic pieces that has a polished feel to it and pieces that lends a sporty touch however little it may be.  By keeping your accessories to a bare minimum execution of this look will result in a total chic ensemble.

We start off with a gingham button up by Primark paired with olive cargo skinnies by New Look.  I buttoned the shirt all the way to the top to give it that polished feel but left it untucked for a more casual look, I belted the skinnies with tan concho style leather waist belt by River Island to match it with the booties that I am wearing.  I then layered over a monochromatic star print outsized sweater, I cuffed the sleeves to have the same peeking effect the top of the shirt has with the sleeves.  For outerwear, I went with my trusty camel wool duffle coat by Uniqlo complete today’s polished sport day look.

On bottom, I went with my New Look brown cross buckled ankle booties.  These have been my go to booties for the rainy days here in London [TMI].  The booties brings in a subtle biker element but still ties in with the whole polished sporty look I am going for

For accessories, I kept it minimal via a simple curved bar necklace by H&M followed by a simple analogue watch by ASOS and a stack of simple silver bands on my ring finger by Topshop and heirloom gift from my mum.  To give the entire look that sporty feel I went and added my H&M black felt baseball cap, this plays off with the black star print on the sweater, I think the cap adds a subtle sporty edge to the look because of the sleek solid black hue.  I finished off the accessories by wearing my grey chunky knitted long scarf by River Island to keep me warm in this cold and rainy day in London Town...LoL...

Lastly, the chosen bag to go with today's pairing is my Primark duffle backpack to tie in with that sporty vibe that the baseball cap lends and give it it a subtle collegiate feel.

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