Leather biker topped with faux fur vest, a combination that I’ve always wanted to try and finally had the chance, given the current weather – not too cold for leather and not too warm for (faux) fur.
The magic layering effect really entices me here. As well as the contrast of texture – shiny, reflective leather and matte, fluffy fur. That’s how black on black makes a difference!
I chose a pair of burgundy pants here to complete the outfit, and to bring a bit of color to the look, since I am already wearing black suede booties and a handbag of the same color. You know why those chic French women always reach to burgundy when they need a pop of color – it’s THAT classic and versatile, going just too well with black and white! By the way, this pair of Uniqlo Ultra Stretch Skinny is so amazing that I recommend you get your hands on at least a few colors of it when you have the chance 🙂
It’s the first time on the blog that I am tying up my hair like this, actually it happened quite often when my hair was longer, but not so much after I did the perm in South Korea (I love the effect too much to tie the hair up~). With the fluffy fur, I want to avoid having too much lingering around my shoulder which will make my neck looks even shorter, hence the ‘new’ hairstyle.
Messy bun is the name of the trend now, isn’t it? It looks great on blond girls because of the lighter color of their hair. Yet for Asian brunettes like myself (who, in additional, refuse to dye the hair), a not-too-messy one is probably better since our hair texture is generally thicker / coarser. And the contrast between our hair color and skin tone is so big that the too-messy effect would risk sending out the ‘I didn’t comb my hair this morning and I don’t care what you think of me’ message (only in my opinion though).
Do you like my ‘unusual’ hair style in this post? And what do you think of the fur vest on top of leather idea? Leave me your comment please!
