How To Wear 'Double Denim'

If you've been reading my blog or following my Instagram for some time, you'll know that I'm not usually the type to stick with one solid colour in my outfits. I really like to mix prints with plain pieces, statement jewellery with button up shirts and neutral shades with a pop of  colour in my lipstick or accessories. If anything, I definitely don't usually dress totally in the one colour. Recently, though, you will have seen in my Shades of Grey post that I've been trying out the 'all one colour' outfits and I actually received some really nice feedback.

I definitely would have never thought I'd be doing the double denim look as I cringe so much looking back at that famous photo of JT and Britney.. that's definitely not the look I was going for. (LOL)
Although it's a style that a lot of people would tend to stay away from, I think double denim is definitely wearable when you play around with different materials and shades as opposed to sticking with the exact same colour, top and bottom.. switch it up for sure! I paired my favourite pair of Topshop Ripped Joni Jeans in quite a dark denim that I purchased a year or two ago, with a very old lightweight cotton button up shirt (I'm pretty sure this was bought in France one year), rolled up the sleeves and tucked it in to my high waisted skinnies to make it look a bit more modern and 'chic'. 

For a more wearable look, I couldn't resist adding a bright pink lip shade (MAC 'Cherry' lip liner) to 'brighten up' the outfit along with a long necklace with an oval turquoise stone for an added bit of colour, yet still keeping things neutral with a pair of fringed beige booties - very similar pair on Missguided on sale for £14! I've linked these products and similar pieces below to re-create this look.

NYE Outfit & Plans for 2016

I'm currently in a state of denial that Christmas is over already, it seemed to go in the blink of an eye. That being said, I don't think I've ever been more excited for a year than 2016. I'm hoping to move city/country/planet (lol) towards the later half of the year to start Uni after spending 4 years doing two different courses which, in the end, helped me figure out what career path to take. It's all a work in progress and nothing is definite yet, but 2016 will likely be home to a lot of changes.  

For these reasons, I was really looking forward to celebrating the New Year so a party was in order this time round, as was my favourite winter lipstick ever - MAC 'Diva'. The miles I go for an outfit to perfectly match my lipstick is hilarious, not to mention a bit extreme. This Missguided skirt was probably the only piece in my wardrobe that matched it to a T, so needless to say, it was an absolute mustI purchased the beaded top from the Topshop sale last year and added a statement necklace with my favourite black knee high boots for the essential 'winter vibes'.

90's Inspired Fashion

''You've got holes in your jeans, you know'' - I've heard it at least ten times coming from (a) the older generation, or (b) somebody with absolutely no clue about fashion. *eye rolls* 

Although you may not consider this the 'grungy' look, it is actually quite different for me as it isn't something I'd typically put together. I'm usually the one wearing light colours and pink lipstick. Recently, though, I've been really inspired by the whole 90's trend that I've been seeing everywhere lately. Not saying that I can see myself in a pair of Doc Marten's anytime soon (that would be a bit extreme for me), but with signature 90's fashion trends like berry lips and leather biker jackets coming back, I've been tempted to give it a go myself. 

I'm always fascinated to see fashion trends from decades ago come back into style. I found it hilarious when everybody began wearing the choker necklaces that we all ran about with years ago. I just hope 'mood rings' don't come back. *cringe*
 It shows that you really shouldn't dump clothes just because the 'trend' has been and gone, it will come back in style sooner or later!90s ripped jeans trend
