Lavish Alice White Tailored Suit (Jacket
– Zara Mules – Topshop Sunglasses
Make no mistake, I’m no angel.
White is almost always seen as pure and innocent, but in the form of a white tailored suit all of that has been transformed into something strong, powerful, and basically pretty damn badass.
couldn’t be further from angelic. It’s all in the interplay between sharp tailoring and crisp white colouring: the strict, structural lines demand attention (until you spill some coffee on it, then it just demands the wrong kind of attention. You slob.)
You can’t ignore the 90s vibe either. I feel like I should be strolling around some palm-tree lined Miami boulevard in 1991 rather than prancing about some derelict graffiti-blasted canal car park. It’s a hard life. But at least I got the chance to indulge in a little pretend Miami luxury when I wore this suit to the ASOS Fashion Finder Awards Brunch in association with Urban Outfitters at the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch. Cue rooftop brunch, palm trees (okay fine, they were more life roof-garden potted plants) and an epic view over London.
Have you noticed my addiction for co-ords and two-pieces is still going strong? I have a confession: I think it’s down to laziness more than anything. What’s better than not having to think about what top to pair with your shorts when you know it already has the perfectly matching identical counterpart? Sure, creativity is great sometimes, but somedays you just need an easy outfit.
I’m guilty. So very guilty.
