LOTD :: Utilitarian Luxe

"Utilitarian Luxe"


Happy Thursday! To all my sugar cubes and Fashionista’s all over the world.

For today’s look of the day, I decided to go with a polished utilitarian ensemble.  I say polished because the garment pairings are slightly structured and prim while having a casual feel to it.

We start off with an embellished slate button up by H&M that I recently purchased in the sale; I paired this with my ASOS 90’s blue wash denim skinnies for that to give it a more casual look.  I buttoned the button up all the way to the top for that polished feel but left it untucked to keep that effortless feel.  I threw on my bouclé style monochromatic cardigan also a sale item from H&M to give it that Chanelesque feel.

For outerwear, I have on my Topshop black quilted leather moto jacket as it is fairly mild winter day in London town along with my grey outsized scarf by Boutique Hong Kong.  The leather jacket lends a prefect amount of edginess to the look making uber chic.

On bottom, I kept that subtle utilitarian feel via my suede cross buckled ankle booties by New Look.

For accessories, I again went with a minimalistic approach as there are already embellishments on the shirt.  I have one my beaded layer necklace by Accessorize along with a simple analogue watch by ASOS and of course the ring Mother gave me.

Lastly, the chosen bag to with today's pairing is my Céline Phantom Luggage Tote wanna be hand bag which is my Parisian in cherry red.  This is brings the perfect contrast to the slate, the blue and the black and white of the look.

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