Essentials : Episode 006 – The Chambray Shirt

I don’t know what’s up with all of those items that you don’t particularly love, until they suddenly became indispensable in your wardrobe, but this sort of thing keeps happening a lot to me lately.

If for such a long time I could live just fine without possessing a chambray shirt, now I keep hoping I’ll add one to my wardrobe as soon as possible, as if it will go with anything in my closet.

Truth be told it is pretty versatile as you can wear it with so many things, it is very comfortable and it can stir the direction of your outfit to right where you need it to.

How would I wear this shirt? Of course, I already gave it a thought …take a look below:

Essentials : Episode 02 – Black Leather Leggings

I know, I know, black leather leggins are not exactly an essential piece in our wardrobe, but somehow this season I begin to think they are. I must say I still don’t own anything leathery, I practically don’t even know why, maybe because it wasn’t my style up until now, but I’m slowly falling into this trend and I think I might try them very soon :D.

To be prepared when that moment comes and also for all of you who do own a pair of leather leggins, the next three looks may come in handy.

The first almost all-black look, gives a little bit of edge to our “on-the-go” pieces and it is Rock&Roll meets Biker Chick inspired but on a softer level. I couldn’t decide on the t-shirt as I found two adorable ones : I Love Cats ( I’m a cat person, yes) and the cute Kate Mouse Tee.

01.Black-Leather-Leggings---Edgy

I used : The Row – Occayne stretch-leather leggings; Simeon Farrar For Japan – Kate Mouse cotton T-shirt; Vince – Quilted leather motocross jacket; Alexander McQueen – Swarovski crystal double-skull ring; Zoe Karssen – I Heart Cats cotton and modal-blend T-shirt; Marc Jacobs – Cooper quilted leather shoulder bag; Belstaff – Barkmaster leather boot.

 

The second look is more urban, more feminine, it’s all about the sheer materials and the high heels :

02.Black-Leather-Leggings---Sexy

I used : The Row – Occayne stretch-leather leggings; Equipment – Signature leopard-print silk-chiffon shirt; Stella McCartney – Faux suede high-cut pumps; Giles & Brother – Archer 10-karat gold-plated cuff; Karl Donoghue – Shearling gilet; Miu Miu – Madras leather clutch.

 

Sequined top, high heels, sparkly earrings and of course the final look is perfect for a night out:

03.Black-Leather-Leggings---Party

I used : The Row – Occayne stretch-leather leggings; Milly – Victoria suede and leather clutch; Yves Saint Laurent – Studded suede platform sandals; Dannijo – Cambria silver-plated Swarovski crystal earrings; Anna Sui – Sequined mesh top.
