Mad Hatter Style – Going Retro

I find that playing around with different styles is not only immensely enjoyable, but it also makes me scrutinize my fashion limitations. Experimenting with new pieces and trends pushes me out of my comfort zone, and as a result it boosts my confidence, making me completely at ease with everything I wear.

I’m playing Mad Hatter in today’s look, going with a more vintage inspired outfit. I love the idea of a wide brim hat however, I never bought myself a proper one, simply assuming it would be a bit too inconvenient to carry if I decide to take it off! As a part of an experiment to get me into wearing more hats I bought this black Primark felt fedora hat, and I could not have been happier with it!

The pretty vintage-inspired bow makes it easy to wear with a furry winter coat or a short shearling jacket,

Made from soft wool, this wide-brimmed feldora hat is perfect for those chilly Saturday shopping trips or Sunday lunches and at £8, it surely is a foolproof accessory you can’t afford to miss!

I mixed it with this cosy Faux fur collar maxi cardigan, also from Primark.

Funky, stylish and practical with a touch of American retro! I love the way it is complemented by the hat and how unasumingly cool and off-duty it makes the whole outfit look.

Layering is great for winter, so I opted for this sumptuously soft CARVEN Green Tigerintarsia Knitted Sweater I picked up from theOutnet. I love the teal / coral nylon and mohair-blend and tiger stripe design that goes so well with natural tone of the leggings!

These Donna Karan New York Seamed skinny rattan pants are one of the classic body pants, designed with lines and seams that make the difference tracing the silhouette, accentuating the positive through sculpting, shape and structure, also engineered to elongate the leg.

This is what you call a great easy chic look for busy ladies!

I popped on these Sam Edelman Petty Sued Booties I picked up on BrandAlley. With one of the season’s hottest silhouettes, they are on my top 10 perfect flat booties list!

Sam Edelman shoes are defined by a strong eye for fashion so no wonder that after more than 30 years in the industry, he has honed his craft to design shoes that reflect his creative sensibility and confident style. His expressive signature on the insole of his shoes has become an iconic hallmark of quality.

My favourite features are stacked heel and tonal grosgrain piping at the notched top line.

Modern Monochrome

There’s been one overwhelming winner for fashion trends of the season in my wardrobe – the monochrome. I absolutely adore this eternally chic combination, no surprise I have accumulated a fair amount of black and white separates I chop and change as I go.

Monochrome is simple but wearing it requires a bit of forethought. The key is to choose the right monochrome for you, and style it up (but not too much) and this is yet another of my takes on this extraordinarily versatile look.

Take a look at this loose fitting Marc By Marc Jacobs White Cleo Quilted Raglan Top I picked up some time ago at FarFetch.

P1040089

Originally set up as a diffusion line by Marc Jacobs, the brand is now run by the esteemed British duo Luella Barleya and Katie Hillier who injected into the brand a lot of cool tailoring and fresh graphics.

P1040991

This stretch-cotton top is a true style powerhouse with its elaborate quilting and oversized raglan sleeves. I am fond of the zip-trim shoulders that certainly make the top look more interesting.

As a contrasting separate, I chose these laid back luxe wrapped trousers from Superfine I bought last year on one of my favourite online shopping destinations – COCOSA.

P1040984

Made from super soft black cotton, they have a subtle wrap look detail on the front and two side slit pockets on the hips. I love the tapered legs and ankle skimming cuffs with zip fastenings. A bit punk, a bit purist Perfect for a lazy afternoon out!

P1040989

Established in 2003 by Lucy Pinter and Flora Evans, Superfine is recognised as an innovative style leader, creating rock and roll jeans with a real London attitude. The designs embrace denim’s effortlessness, with the focus on fit and fabric with clever, often hidden, details.

I picked my favourite Alexander Wang Lovisa embossed peroxite white lizard-effect leather pumps to complement the look. I got them up over summer on sales at Jades24, unfortunately, now sold out.

P1040009

They are the most stylish and comfortable heels I own, that’s probably why I am a proud owner of these beauties in three different colours including black and blood orange!

P1040014

These Lovisa pumps are made from peroxide snake embossed leather and feature a sleek ankle strap, both practical and chic, it will seamlessly take you from season to season.

P1040019

I simply adore the stiletto high elegant tapered toe with t-strap and a side buckle fastening that transforms this classic style into something utterly modern.
