Today’s outfit is very daring. It may not seem so at a first look, but it’s very cold and windy outside so it’s pretty daring for me. Fortunately, the wind isn’t too strong so I don’t have to worry about any Monroe moments but despite today’s outfit being coat-less I’m still warm enough. The magic is all in the undergarments. My top is rather cosy, as it’s made of a knitted fabric that contains tiny traces of wool which keeps me warm, but underneath, I’m wearing a basic black vest top, made of a thermal fabric so I don’t feel the chills. Little outfit pieces like this are essential for me this season because I’m always complaining about being cold. They’re excellent for layering, and a lot of the time, you can buy the fabric and make up a tank top yourself rather then buying an overpriced product. I’m a dress and skirt person, and I love to wear them no matter what time of year it is so heat-holding clothing is my calling. As today’s look is quite girly, I’m wearing my favourite faux leather combat boots with a zipper and lace fastening. I’ve found that these boots pair well with everything because of their colour, which I’m calling off-black and the fastenings can be altered to create different styles. For example, if I pull the laces a lot tighter like today, they resemble calf boots which is the look I was going for. To finish my outfit, I’m carrying my ‘everyday’ handbag from Next.
