Sequinned Bow-tie – Ebay
Oversized White Shirt – Miss Selfridge
Faux Leather Leggings – Ebay
Black Suede Heels – NewLook
I’ve always had a thing for bow ties. At first my attention pivoted towards the men that wore them, in year 12 I had the biggest crush on this guy for no reason other than the fact that he wore one and he wore it well. Now, however my interest in them has spiked even more so because I realised two things; 1) They are not a male only accessory and 2) Because I feel confident enough to wear them.
The oversized white shirt is a basic need and I urge all women to get one (this one in particular if you can before it runs out of stock!) I had a very different concept in mind when I bought the leather leggings; they were mainly to be paired with baggy sweatshirts and heeled boots but I couldn’t help and try to pair it with the white shirt because as simple as the two items are on their own, together they look, well… really nice. The heels I’m wearing are from New Look and God almighty must have created them because they are literally the most comfortable pair I have ever owned! I’ve worn these for ten hour shifts at a time and still no blisters and no complaints at all!
The overall look is quite simple and yet it’s classy enough to be worn out, a bit of a gender bender with the outfit being very male oriented -albeit not the leggings so much and the latter do help to bring a more feminine touch to the ensemble.
The bow tie is as you may have guessed by now, my favourite part of the outfit and was the statement accessory that tied the entire ensemble together.
Have a great weekend everyone!
