This was a simple outfit worn to a photography exhibition I went to last week - without a doubt one of the most last-minute ensembles I've worn in a long time.If you take one pair of culottes (though they're really wide leg trousers tbh) worn with some suitable-for-the-office-but-still-funky shoes and add a black biker jacket, what do you get? Corporate chic meets rock chick, that's what...! I gave this outfit the briefest glance in the mirror before leaving and simply hoped for the best - I was late and wouldn't have had time to change if it wasn't working.
Thankfully I think it worked.
'David and i'A few months ago we got ourselves VIP tickets for the "David & i" fine art photography exhibition of David Bowie prints by rock photographer Denis O'Regan and it was absolutely wonderful, whether you're a Bowie fan or not (but then, who isn't?!). You'll see one of the Instagram selfies I took on the night below, you can imagine the fun I had going round taking all the photos...!
I DIDN'T WANT TO CARRY A COAT AROUND WITH ME BUT DIDN'T WANT TO GET TOO HOT/TOO COLD EITHER, SO A BIKER JACKET ALWAYS, ALWAYS WORKS FOR ME IN THIS SITUATION.
This outfit is pretty straightforward - it started with the shoes (funky but flat for comfort) and then came the wide leg cropped trousers (similar). I've worn the trousers before to an event and they work well as a smart alternative to skinny trousers. So that was the corporate part done - those two are well suited to the office.
