MONOCHROME, LACE, AND SOPHISTICATION





If you follow my Instagram, you may already recognise this outfit - I wore it out a couple of weeks ago for my flatmate's birthday meal out. I wanted to wear something that was classy yet still young and fun. This outfit, particularly the lace insert Topshop skirt number, got a great response on Instagram, therefore I thought I would write and post a full blog post on it this week (ta-dah!).

When putting this outfit together, I knew what look I wanted to go for and definitely knew that I wanted the skirt to be the main structured centrepiece. I absolutely adore the lace detailing on this skirt and how figure hugging it is. I feel like the lace adds a subtle sexy vibe to the outfit yet it is still ladylike and sophisticated. The skirt is high waisted - which I also love, because I feel that high waisted clothing makes me feel more pulled in and less exposed in the lower tummy area. As the skirt was high waisted and knee length, it does cover up a proportion of the torso and legs: I partnered the skirt with a Topshop basic white cami crop top in order to break up the outfit a little and show a sneaky bit of skin. I went for a monochrome scheme instead of colour or an all black look because I love how the contrast compliments each other and I was worried that an all black look may wash me out completely. In terms of shoes, I went for these New Look black peep toe style heels. They aren't too high which was good for me because I feel that the height was just enough when going out for dinner or drinks. However, the outfit would still look equally as good with a pair of strappy high heels, such as some I have mentioned in the links below. 

In basic terms, with my makeup, I decided on a simple winged eyeliner look for my eyes,  partnered with a girly blush by NARS in shade 'Orgasm'. On my lips, I wore the Maybelline Colordrama lip pencil in shade 'Nude Perfection' which gave a matte pinky/peachy nude appearance.

I hope you liked this look, let me know your thoughts below. Also, if you're interested in buying the look for yourself, don't forget to have a look at some of the links to exact products I wore or similar items if products are unfortunately now sold out.

*If you can't find exact products or if they have sold out, don't be scared to search them on websites/apps such as eBay or Depop! Second hand is such a way forward, especially for students like me!*
