LOOK OF THE DAY
HAPPY THURSDAY!!! To all my sugar cubes and fashionista's of the world.
For today's look of the day, I've decided to go with a monochromatic look using hues of black and white with a pop of pink that is structured and polished. I am super happy about today’s look as majority of the pieces I have on is by my favourite shop H&M. I have compiled alternative and some of the actual pieces under the steal my style section of this blog post and I hope that you recreate this fabulous ensemble.
We start off with a horizontal striped top by H&M paired with another H&M piece which is a drawstring tuxedo trouser. The pairing is pretty much in the matchy-matchy bar which sometimes can tend to look overdone or over the top but because of the contrast of the stripes being vertical on the bottom and horizontal on top it just creates a unison that gives off a structured and polished feel. Unfortunately, due to the trousers being in the sale it is no longer available so the alternative is not identically match.
The chosen outerwear for today's look of the day came in the form of pink lightweight cocoon coat by H&M purchased in their recent SALE. The pink adds the perfect amount of colour pop to a monochromatic ensembles give it a more playful feel because of the bright contrast. Sadly, I was not able to find a cheaper alternative for you guys.
On bottom, I opted to go with a neutral approach for footwear to tone down the look as it is very matchy-matchy. The shoe that I have on are these ZARA nude patent leather low block heel slip ons that I got in the SALE earlier in the year.
For accessories, I went with warm tone jewellery pieces via a statement necklace by Primark followed my chunky gold plated analogue watch by River Island, an arrow bracelet by Topshop and a couple of stack rings including the gifted ring from Mother of course.
Lastly, the chosen bag to go with today's pairing is my H&M embossed faux leather chunky chain strapped cross-body bag. This bag resembles the Chanel Boy cross-body and it is fraction of the price [£19.99]. You guys know that I am always on the hunt for the designer alternatives and it’s simply amazes me that high street brands nowadays are able to provide cheaper alternatives. Keep an eye out for a feature piece on this specific item.
That's it for today’s LOTD and until the next time…FASHION IS THE DICTATOR OF TASTE! ...XOXO...
