Spliced Graphic Tee

Metal and Rock T-Shirts, particularly these spliced style tops have been popping up all over the place recently, from Jaden Smith’s Instagram feed to fashion week runways and I love them.

The T-Shirts are are great way to mix up graphic prints and add a little extra detail into your look, rather than a typical (but still very cool) band tee. I got mine from Topman and have been loving wearing it with some ripped up denim and chelsea boots for a Saint Laurent x Vetements inspired look.

I think they’re a great Winter – Spring transition piece, as they’re perfect to wear solo, on warmer days or layered up with a shirt, hoodie, jacket etc. on the cooler days.

They’re a streetwear staple and so versatile, they are another piece you can see in high-street stores but also in high-end stores like Saint Laurent – one of my favourites is their distressed plaid shirt, with bleach splatters all over it’s super unique and an awesome piece.

I picked up mine from River Island, and it’s on in the sale for just Β£8 – so if you’re after one go grab it – here! I was surprised at how good the quality was – it has a really thick, soft material and a great shape. I’ve been wearing it loads, but in a tonne of different styles.

They are super easy to layer and I’ve been wearing it over hoodies, between pieces like a t-shirt and denim jacket, where it hangs below the waistline, creating a really nice layered look, and also with it tied around my waist.

Orange

Orange IS the new black & is taking over my Instagram feed with a haul of streetwear enthusiasts infusing some orange pieces into their looks. I’m a huge fan.

I think orange pieces work amazingly with an otherwise monochrome look & they are a great way to add some colour and make your look stand out. Perfect for the Spring/Summer season we’re heading into.

I really likeΒ this oversized orange hoodieΒ and it’s a super affordable price, especially compared with a Balmain version which would set you back Β£400+.

Hats & Hawaiian Prints – Smart Summer Look 2

                       

River Island Hat / River Island Hawaiian Shirt / Topman Super Skinny Shorts / River Island Brogues / Storm Sunglasses

In my last post I shared a smart summer outfit, today’s post is a bit of a part 2. This look is a little more adventurous, due to the Hawaiian prints but if you’re willing to give it a go, I think it can definitely work. 

Once again, I went with simple, black super skinny shorts; they work well with everything and I really like the skinny fit. Also, I chose to wear my brown brogues, as I said in my last post they’re smart but still have a modern, clean look! 

I’ve often been scared to try more daring prints, which is why I went with this Hawaiian shirt. It incorporates the bold patterns, but uses more modest, neutral colours. 

The final thing I added to this outfit was my hat, I’ve seen a lot of people wearing hats at the  moment and really wanted to get one myself. After a while trying on different styles and colours I eventually settled for this brown coloured Fedora hat. I really like how it looks with this outfit; I think it is just a subtle but stylish add-on.
