Metal Accents

I’m back with another one of my black outfit ideas, because who doesn’t love black right?  I featured this asymmetric top on my Instagram a few weeks back and a few of you were asking how I would style it.  As the weather people keep saying it’s incredibly mild in London (albeit still pretty chilly) for this time of year so I’m finding that I can still get away with wearing outfits like this.  The top is sleeveless which you can’t see here but it’s not that mild to wear without a jacket so I’m covering up with this black animal-friendly biker (love a bit of pleather).  Now I haven’t donned a pair of flares in at least two weeks so I thought it was about time to whip those out again, plus the silhouette they give this look is just perf!  I love how the different lengths of each piece create a layered look without actually wearing that many layers.  I’ve tied the look together with the silver metal accents on all the pieces I’m wearing, the black tassel YSL bag, the giant metal eyelet on the top and the metal hardware on the biker jacket.  Just these hints of metal really break up the look and add that edge I crave so much.
