To all my independent women, put yo’ hands up!
I put together this outfit one weekend and fell in love with how it truly represented my style. I love anything monochrome, black, white or neutral. But what I loved more were the bits and pieces which made the outfit so unique. It has that 70s vibe, fit with frills, thrills, class and femininity.
I wore a long black sleeveless dress from Crossroads, which buttons down the chest with frills lining the buttons. Gentle ruffles add romance to any outfit and this is what made me fall in love with the combination of a bold but classic look. Underneath I wore a black body top for coverage and tucked them both into a black and white grid patterned pair of palazzo pants. Palazzo pants are making their comeback and are designed to enhance your silhouette. They are loosely tailored and a perfect new season essential to stay perfectly on trend. The geometric grid pattern accentuates sophistication and compliments that 70s feel. I chucked on a white cropped blazer from Valleygirl, that was studded with gunmetal studs, making me feel smart though equally rock chic. A studded blazer can shield yourself from cool breezes in stylish comfort while maintaining street style cred with a feeling of punk chucked in for good measure. I get cold easily so a blazer to add to my layers during winter is essential in keeping me warm.
Of course my scarf needed to be one which matched the monochrome tones in my outfit, styled in a way that complimented the overall look. Therefore I opted for the charcoal heavy chiffon scarf eloquently draped to accentuate the femininity of the fabric and the icon of hijab itself. I paired my outfit with some crisscross black heels with a back zip from Betts for Her. They aren’t too high as I am already tall, just perfect to compliment my height.

Clothing and fashion is an outer expression of yourself and a representation on how you are feeling or what mood you are in as well. This outfit got me 70s vibin’ and had me lifting my head up, walking confidently.
