Hounds Tooth Mini

A good way to jazz up a simple look is to add a waist coat. This one is a tad big for me, but that does seem to be on trend right now, so am going with that. As long as no one asks me to re-fill their drink or bring out fresh canapes!

Waist Coat – random local market (similar) Hounds Tooth mini – Promod (similar). White shirt – Zara. Navy loafers – Anne Klein

 

No Time to Waist

A classic black waist coat is my idea of a wardrobe staple. I adore mine and wear it over skirts, jeans and trousers to add a smart edge. This cute lace skirt is a nice contradiction to the masculine waist coat.

White & cream lace mini – Promod $18.50 (50% sale). Black waist coat – old, similar. Heels – old Enzo Angiolini. Watch – Gucci. Sunglasses – Rayban

Vintage Bracelet Inspiration

I woke up thinking about my vintage charm bracelet (bought for me at birth in 1981) an what outfit would look good with it. The results are my favourite massive flares, simple white collared shirt and statement leopard print belt.

I added a red jacket and black waistcoat to see where else I could take the look. I like both, especially with waist coat, feels very Kate Moss.
