OOTD: PINK TONES

 Jeans- ASOS (similar) / Trainers- ASOS / T-shirt- Topman / Jacket- Topman (similar) / Cap- Topman (similar)





Due to a recent photography project, I was lucky enough to be able to go inside a local photo studio. I photographed two outfits, this one being the first. This outfit is made up of this dust pink/salmon colour that I am completely in love with at the moment. The colour PINK has been such a huge trend on recent autumn/winter runways. I love the colour, as its a slight shift from my usual neutral colour palette, yet its not way out of my comfort zone.


I decided to create an outfit completely based on this pink colour! I purchased the cap quite a while ago now and when in London shopping, I came across this denim, rustic jacket that I knew instantly would match the hat perfectly. I decided to continue the neutral colour palette with a sand coloured top. I could imagine this outfit in my head when buying the jacket (a little technique I do every time when buying something new to see if its worth buying) however I was struggling to imagine any shoes to go with it. So i recently purchased the perfect shoes for this outfit, the adidas originals, Tubular Doom PK trainers. The sand and pink is identical on the shoes to the t shirt and jacket. I paired this look with a distressed pair of jeans (I call these my 'more leg than jean, jeans') to give the outfit that slight rustic, distressed vibe that I love at the moment.

OOTD: GREY TONES




Jacket- Zara (similar) / Hoodie-River Island / Jeans- River Island / Trainers- ASOS


When putting together this outfit, I was baring in mind the recent tonal trend. Most people (including myself) automatically associate the tonal trend with earthly tones such as sand, stone and khaki, however I have found that creating tonal outfits with different colours can create such chic looks. 



In a recent shopping trip to London, I picked up these distressed, river island jeans at a pricey £45, however I bought the less pricey, suede biker jacket from Zara, in the sale, for only £30! Despite the jeans being quite expensive, I feel as though they are worth the money due to the details such as the rose embroidery, the distressed detail and the raw hem.It can be quite difficult to find shoes that look appropriate with the raw hem of the jean. In my opinion, any shoe that comes above the ankle doesn't look quite right. I would personally style these jeans, with ankle trainers (like the ones in the photographs) or loafers. Pairing the biker jacket with the charcoal distressed hoodie adds an effortless vibe that comes across almost Yeezy-like. Wearing grey tones is great for everyday, casual wear, however I personally, wouldn't wear it to a special occasion or for going on a night out, as It can often wash you out, and make you look paler than you are.

TREND: TONAL




Coat- Zara / Jumper- ASOS / T-shirt- Topman / Jeans- ASOS / Boots- Next (similar) / Hat - Topman (similar)


'The Camel Coat' is iconic. It's a style statement and a must have in every man's (and every woman's) wardrobe. Despite Kim and Kanye rocking the signature coat LAST year in Paris, in the build up to their anticipated wedding, it has never really lost its 'cool'. IT'S A CLASSIC. To be honest the colour 'camel' as a whole has been a huge autumnal trend, and has been for quite a few autumn/winter seasons. This particular coat, was pricey, but it was worth every penny. The fit, the colour and the texture is out of this world, despite getting it in a large a few years back when I completely overestimated my weight and size. 

I decided to pair the coat with, tonal colours as this has been an ongoing trend for quite some time now. I paired my chocolate-brown, suede jumper with a sand coloured, extreme long-line t-shirt. I feel as though the three brown-based shades create an obvious enough contrast without losing the tonal element. Ideally some rust or stone jeans would really complete this look, however I only have khaki. Yet I feel as though the khaki, adds an element of colour and isn't wayyyy out of the earthly tones and as crazy as it sounds, the colour of my skin coming through the rips in the jeans, adds another shade to the mix haha. I completed the look with some chocolate-brown desert boots, tied with sand laces, to parallel the shades of the jumper and t-shirt, and a khaki fedora to compliment the jeans.

TREND: EMBROIDERY





Coat- NEW LOOK (similar) / Roll Neck- H&M (similar) / Jeans- ASOS / Boots - OFFICE / Watch- BOSS / Cap- TOPMAN



A huge trend for summer was embroidered denim, and this trend seems to have continued through to autumn. The trend began when Gucci included embroidered denim in its spring/summer collection. It was a trend that very quickly translated from high end to high street, which you don't really see that often and I feel as though it was something that just came about rather abruptly. These embroidered jeans that I am wearing have a Japanese element to them due to the flowers and twisted vines, however most embroidered denim consist of either floral, tribal or tropical embroidery. More recently, as we go on into winter, I have noticed that there are a lot more embroidered denim jackets around, and they mainly consist of american, preppy embroidery that is normally sport orientated.  I personally love this trend at the moment, however I feel like its running its course a little, I predict that by January 'embroidered denim' won't really be a thing anymore.

TREND: GRUNGY LAYERS


Jacket- TOPMAN, Nick Grimshaw collection / Shirt- TOPMAN (similar) / T-shirt- ASOS / Jeans- TOPMAN / Boots- OFFICE 







have been looking on a few of my favourite clothing websites for new clothes to buy, and I recently came across a new trend which I completely adore.  The trend I came across was labelled 'GRUNGY LAYERS' on ASOS and its something that I've always done without it really being a 'trend' as such. I love layering different textures with similar colours to create a grungy vibe. I wouldn't describe my personal style as 'grungy' however I have quite a few pieces of clothing in my wardrobe that could be described in that way. I hope this is a trend that will stick around for a while, as I think it is something really cool and different for autumn/winter time.
