T-shirt – Urban Outfitters | Trousers – MissGuided* | Trainers – Nike
Not much to say about this super casual outfit – all black is always a safe bet! I’m wearing my new croc effect leather trousers from MissGuided with an old Rottweiler print t-shirt (Givenchy but not quite) from Urban Outfitters and a pair of Air Max 1s with a similar colourway to my t-shirt.
I’ve been after a pair of leather trousers for a while, and this pair from MissGuided are great! They’re faux leather, and I didn’t find them to be too sweaty to wear. They are very tight and don’t have much stretch in them, so I would recommend sizing up if you’re between sizes, but other than that are a great alternative to jeans or leggings for day or evening!
In recent years I’ve become a bit of a trainer fiend, and although my beloved kicks don’t get much coverage on this blog I just had to post about my latest addition! The Nike Roshe Run Premium Digi Camo, an amazing women’s release which dropped on the Wellgosh store just the other day. The digi camo print is (obviously) amazing and the use of the port wine colour for the swoosh, stitching and the laces is a really nice touch, and Roshe is the most comfortable trainer I’ve ever worn! If you’re a UK size 4 then Wellgosh still have a few pairs left in your size here (at the time of this post), but don’t sleep on it because they’ll all be gone soon. Here I’m wearing them with a simple grey t-shirt dress from Topshop, a silver arm cuff I’ve had for years, sunglasses from Primark and a studded skinny belt from ASOS.
Although this ‘electric yellow’ jumper, courtesy of Glamorous UK, is not for those who want a subtle way to incorporate the neon trend in their outfits, I think it is the perfect statement piece for the trend and is ideal for those all too frequent spring and summer days where the sun doesn’t shine in England!
Click here to view and purchase the jumper at Glamorous UK, a bargain at only £17.99, but please be warned that it is much brighter in person than it appears on the photo on the website!
Here I’ve paired the jumper with a vintage black velvet shirt underneath so that the collar is visible, navy blue American Apparel disco pants as an alternative to an all black look, Liberty print Nike Air Max 1 trainers from their recent collaborative collection, an Alexander McQueen-esque skull print scarf from Primark and my trusty Topshop black leather biker to tie the look together.
I also tried this look with a less casual shoe: a nude and neon lace-up flat from H&M, which combination do you prefer?

This gorgeous Chukka Boot ‘Nordic’ Pack is part of the Vans California Holiday 2011 Collection. The sillhouette is the classic Vans Chukka mid top, but it is the nordic patterns and leather accents which make it such a nice shoe. Available from Vans retailers soon in black and khaki colourways.
