Coat C/O SheInside | Libertines Shirt | High Waisted Trousers from Urban Behaviour | Steve Madden Pumps
Just another simple autumnal outfit! For this one, I paired a lovely camel coat from SheInside with a band t-shirt, high waisted black trousers, and my favourite old suede pumps. One of my favourite sorts of looks lately.
This look, while in a bit of a stark contrast to a lot of the looks I've posted recently, actually represents the sort of outfit I often wear on a daily basis. I do love dresses and skirts, but I've always felt a bit more comfortable in jeans (or some sort of trousers). Seeing as this woollen coat and these jeans don't lend themselves much to a very feminine look (and I don't like to go completely shapeless or covered up), I decided to contrast them with a lacy black blouse and a pair of classic heels.
I'm not entirely certain how to describe what sort of look I was going for with this outfit. It ended up a bit of a mish-mash, really. I had originally planned to style this red Chicwish coat with a pair of houndstooth leggings, but changed my mind upon seeing how that actually looked. Funny how sometimes things just look so much better in your head. I switched out the leggings for a pair of old thrifted trousers and opted for a cream sweater. And I wore a pair of suede Matiko pumps from Shopbop* and matched my lipstick to the trench. Not really worried about whether that last bit is a faux pas.

When putting together this look, I had those Sex and the City castphotos in mind, where the ladies are wearing simple little black dresses and had decided to put together my interpretation of that sort of look! I paired a sleeveless bodysuit from Shopbop* with a bodycon skirt from Urban Behaviour. On their own, I felt the two pieces looked a bit unfinished so I popped on a skinny belt which I think tied them together a bit more nicely. I opted for a pair of vampy Matiko pumps and forewent any accessories to keep in line with my inspiration for this look. X
