best uk fashion bloggers london style blog outfit of the day

I’ve been eyeing up this top since Patricia picked it for another project we both worked on (more on that another time). I loved the beading and velvet detailing, there was just something about it that made me want to base my whole look around it. Initially was going to pair it with a skirt but as it’s cold and I just didn’t feel right wearing a cropped top with a skirt. While I definitely don't have the tum for showing too much stomach cleavage,  but I do think a little hint of flesh is a nice subtle flash. I always think showing too much flesh can be too much and not sexy at all. Plus its something I feel more comfortable with than having my belly jiggling everywhere! Therefore, I went for high rise trousers instead. With a few umm’s and aah’s I decided on some printed tartan trousers as well as they are really big at the moment and totally seasonal. I would say size up in these as they are definitely on the small size!

I can’t get enough of this metal bag either which is a wonderful statement piece for the party season. I love the snakeskin finish, and it really adds a touch of vintage glamour to the outfit. I also styled it with strappy platform heels, a fedora and a luxe furry collared coat. It has a real 70's come 90's vibe to the outfit which I really love!

Im off for fancy drinks in central with an old friend tonight so I thought this was the perfect mix between casual and party wear. We're going to a bar thats a bit glam, but I didn't fancy the whole dress thing. But the jewelled top and jazzy clutch really give the outfit a more jazzy edge. This is a brat day to night outfit too as I could have easily thrown a jumper over the top to wear during the day then whipped it off for the evening time.
