Style Diary - Drapey Snakey
I love love love me a good animal print
I've moved on from leopard print... over to it's cousin Snake Skin. The new go-to animal print, with designers like Prada and Michael Kors adding them into their collections. There is something edgy about a snake skin print. It also goes well with black aka my wardrobe palette.
I got this Snake Skin Blazer from Zara in Sydney whilst attending Sydney Fashion Week. I saw the print and I was sold. It was one of those purchases where the price didn't affect my choice (it wasn't too pricey), the print is white and a pale yellow with black lapels just to add structure to the blazer.
For this look I paired the blazer with this draped top I got from work. I love love love it, it's a simple black draped top with a deep neckline. To me it's very Gareth Pugh/Rick Owens-esque with the piece focusing on the silhouette instead of a print. With that I added a pair of black skinny jeans, black oxfords and my MARTAN Clutch.
I kept the accessories to a minimum, with my White Face Tissot Watch and a simple silver double finger ring from H&M. I'm currently into simplicity, normally I do like to chuck on a few rings or a necklace but now I'm opting for more key piece or a solo statement with my looks. Especially with such a strong print I don't think it needs too much to complete the look.
