Navy and Black
This look is all about bringing together colours and patterns, and that’s exactly what my personal style is all about. Today I decided to challenge myself a bit by trying to put together a look that brought together the combination of two basic colours from the fashion colour pallet - navy and black.
The navy half of this outfit brings together some of favourite pieces. The chinos are from Urban Outfitters that I snagged a few years back, and the small red paisley all over them adds the perfect playful touch to any look. The shirt is my new favourite long sleeve polo that I picked up at Ted Baker London this week, and it encompasses everything that I look for in a long sleeve polo: comfortability, versatility and aesthetic. It’s a piece I never want to take off because its softness compares to no other shirt in my closet.
Now, I've never been the biggest fan of wearing black, mostly because my style is all about colour, but my new leather jacket from Ted Baker London has made me change my mind a little on my personal rule on wearing black. The biker look adds the perfect amount of edge to any look, and quite frankly makes me feel like James Dean all day. Not to mention the number of pockets that make carrying around all your necessities easy while continuing to make you look like a complete badass, and who doesn't love fashion and function right?
For accessories I kept it consistent with some more of my favourite navy pieces. The shoes are from Ted Baker and are my go-to for any occasion from dressy to casual. They add the perfect touch of fun with the leather and patent finish and can be worn with suits or dressed down just like I did in this look. I was always taught that your shoes and belt should match and while I was at it I made sure my watch did too. The belt is from Ted Baker London and the watch from Marc Jacobs. The navy base with the gold accents is always my favourite colour combo and added the perfect pops of metallic flare with the edginess of this look.
I hope you are all having an amazing Tuesday ! Stay tuned for all my day to day looks coming your way soon !
