My Personal Style: London Textures February 14 2016, 5 Comments
Black textures with a sprinkle of white were the best warm yet chic choice for a super cold and extremely windy London. I love to stay warm and with the right layering you can look chic even in a very cold weather. The trick is in a few statement pieces and different material textures.
Since I was three years old, I've been to London every year ever since. I like London - toast bread with butter (which tastes soooo incredibly good only there), red busses and telephone boxes (oh, so photogenic), unpredictable weather, beautiful cemetery on Earl's Court with cutest little squirrels, Covent Garden market and amazing musicals.
This year was extremely windy, so layered look was a must. When layering in one colour, try to play with different textures - that's what makes look unique and interesting. As you can see, I went for wool (coat), fur (vest), faux leather with interesting stitching (pants), suede leather (boots) and patent leather (bag). Yes, many different materials, which work together so nicely, and I spiced up the entire black look with a white tee peeking under a black turtleneck, white Lara's hat and a statement fringed bag in black and white combination.
Paula, thank you for the sexiest taxi ride ever!
