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.
