Just a notice before I get started: altrocklife is now on Facebook! Make sure you head over and give the page a like here.
Now then, back to business. This outfit of the day post is a little outdated, as I wore this outfit out to a friend’s birthday bash last Saturday. Hopefully it’ll give you some inspiration if you’re planning on hitting the town this weekend!
I’d also like the make a disclaimer before we start. Even though the majority of my outfit was purchased in New Look, this post is not sponsored by them in any way. It wasn’t until I started writing this post that I realised just how New Look-centric this outfit is!
Statement jacket, crop top, skort, boots, necklace: New Look
Ring: Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair
I think skorts are perfect for nights out. They’re short enough to show off a bit of leg, but still keep you safe from sudden gusts of wind. Whilst that image of Marilyn Monroe is pretty iconic, it’s not something I want to replicate in the queue for a nightclub.
The crop top adds a bit of fun to the outfit. I think I deserve bonus points as that was the first time I’ve EVER worn a crop top! Cue other fashion blogs clutching their chests and gasping in shock. I’m a bit insecure about my tummy, so the statement jacket on top helped me feel more comfortable. It also meant my midriff was a little less exposed.
The flash of colour in the statement jacket makes what could have been a simple monochrome outfit a bit more fun. There’s nothing wrong with monochrome (I’m wearing all black today) but a little bit of colour can make a big difference.
So there you have it! Do you like my outfit? How would you wear some of the pieces differently? Write a comment and let me know.
