So, for the past couple of weeks ASOS has been holding a massive summer sale, which is amazing news for me – usually, ASOS is a little bit out of my price range, and their sales make everything a whole lot more affordable.
Originally I was looking for a pair of tartan leggings, because I was planning on including them in an 80s punk costume I was working on. Even though I’ll no longer be dressing up as a punk, I knew I had to buy the leggings anyway, because patterns and prints are really popular right now.
I expected the leggings to be a brighter red, judging by the photos on ASOS’s website, however I am happy with the slightly darker red colour now I’ve put them on and got used to them.
Black and red is always a winning combination, so I paired these leggings with one of my favourite chiffon shirts, from New Look – I normally wear chiffon shirts with just my bra underneath, but for those who want to keep their underwear covered up I would pair this shirt with a plain black bandeau top or thin spaghetti-strap vest. Even though this shirt has full-length sleeves, I always roll them up to the elbows to help keep my arms cooler in the summer.
Obviously, a plain shirt would be a little boring, so I added a large multi-chain necklace, also from New Look. Its combination of gold and black spikes and diamante-embellished chains makes the necklace eye-catching, and breaks up the monotony of the black shirt.
What do you think of this outfit? How would you wear tartan leggings? Let me know on Twitter or in the comments below!
