The Best of Both Worldsby Yoyo Cao
It’s been almost a month since we had a proper outfit post – not counting my street style compilations – so it’s nice to finally be able get back into the groove again. And with pieces by my homie Han of Self-Portrait, too! I like to think of this look as killing multiple metaphorical birds with one stone. You’ve got structured ruffles, cut-outs, some off-the-shoulder action, stripes, exposed zips and patent all at once, yet it somehow all works.
I love how it is a combination of stripes and patent, which as you guys know, I cannot get enough of. How many times have you seen me in patent already? Too many, but I don’t think I’m stopping anytime soon. The look is also a mix of feminine and masculine, which is an idea that I love to play around with a lot. To end things off, I paired it with one of my favourite kicks of the moment: the dainty but very statement-making “J’ADIOR” logo slingback pumps. Logomania, another thing of the moment.
So, here you have it, another way to style patent. It’s more versatile than you think, just give it a shot. To see more of Self-Portrait’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection – where this look came from – click here. To shop similar pieces to the look, just click on the links above.
