I have been loving this longline white bomber I bought over the holidays. It's the perfect white and the material is similar to a windbreaker jacket. The zipper adds a nice contrast with a metallic sheen against the white. Although it's not as warm compared to the previous jackets or bombers I wore, but I love the professional and sophisticated appearance when worn. For the first layer, I wore a burgundy tee with the criss cross near the collar area to add a subtle touch of edge. I purposely bought this shirt because of the neckline and with the v-neck style, it shows off my collar and neck without cutting it like a regular boat neck tee. I paired my outfit with leather pants, another one of the favourite staple items. Leather has been slowly taking over my closet. Personally, I think everyone should have a pair of leather pants or a leather jacket in their closet. They are very versatile- I can dress it up or down from wearing a normal white tee with sneakers to a nice blouse with heels. Lastly, I wore my everyday black ankle booties to elongate my legs with the black pants.
If you haven't already noticed, I love wearing different style of glasses on an everyday basis. Although I do love wearing contacts by itself, but eyeglasses really bring out one's personality and most importantly their eyes. I chose a different style compared to the cat eye frames I usually gravitate towards. I must say these style of frames are all over Instagram and Tumblr. I see them everywhere! These are the iconic glasses with the mix of hipster, edge and aviators inspired. It was just last spring and summer (SS16) that Gucci showcased their eyeglass collection with models wearing the throwback gold aviator glasses. This retro style is set to be a huge trend and Gucci led their way with their seventies inspired style campaign. The trend is still continuing into 2017, but it has been moving more towards circular framed glasses- similar to the famous Harry Potter if I were to give you a visual imagination. The pair I am wearing is a rose-gold colour that creates a more feminine appeal.
So, what do you think of the seventies-inspired eyewear look? Retro-chic or a little to nostalgic for your tastes? Let me know your thoughts in the comments or send me a quick message. Also for more details of my outfits click on the links below.
