Hey boys and girls, how’s it going? I’ve recently been getting back into making videos for my YouTube channel so yes, I’ve been multitasking like crazy. Feel free to check out my channel whenever you’re waiting for a new post but right now stay right here as I’m bringing you a new look!
Right let’s just start with the jeans because I’m dying to talk about them. They’re technically not a jean because of the material but they are the Topshop fit that I adore. They are Jamie jeans, the best style of jean that Topshop do. If you know, then you know. If you don’t know, NOW you know!!! They are like a coated jean but more extreme. The material is vinyl which gives them this glossy plastic look which I absolutely love. Although they are an effort to get on these chicken legs of mine, they are well worth the struggle. Really they are the best thing for me as I am also a messy eater so if I do spill anything on my lap I can just simply wipe it off. It’s a win win situation! Overall they exude a very Rock ‘n’ roll/S&M aesthetic and that’s exactly what I was going for for today’s look.
To keep this outfit edgey I paired the bottoms with and black branded hoodie. Slayer is printed on the hoodie and although I’m not a big listener of the band I was more interested in the actual look of the hoodie. I fell in love with the flames and knew immediately they would be the perfect match for these jeans. Although I’m wearing black on black the shiny effect of the jeans against these vibrant orange and yellow flames create the ultimate contrast of textures and gives a real sense of movement. You can never have too much black so on top of that I threw on my black faux teddy bear coat and accessorized with more black.
Moral of the story is that even with all black everything, you can still play with textures to bring life to an outfit.
