Fashion month, however much or little I am involved in it, always gives me a kick up the butt when it comes to slightly more creative dressing. Ten twelfths of the year I tend to opt for one loud piece per outfit – the printed jeans, the red faux leather coat, the red boots – but when the four fashion weeks roll around and the cool girls on my Instagram feed look cooler than ever, I throw them all together and hope for the best.
Red and white is one of my favourite colour combinations – adding black to the mix can look like you’re taking emo revival a little too seriously, but I think that tying it all together with little prints softens that blow a little. Or doesn’t (I mean look at that checkerboard bag), but I like it anyway, so there. I would tone this outfit down for another occasion by swapping out my Ashley Williams pants for plain white jeans and my pointed boots for some trainers.
