This look is something that i’ve wanted to put together for a while now. I wanted to create something that showed off that sense of sophistication, an element of luxury and something that’s still bang on trend, using predominantly black with a hint of gorgeous burnt orange or gold.
I created a makeup look to compliment the look, using my recent Naked 3, Urban Decay palette. It’s such a beautiful palette, filled with rose golds, which have a pure warming undertone. I also wanted to use a contrasting and statement lipstick, so I chose to use this vibrant orange from the Makeup store (Carnaby Street).
The coat shown within my images, pulls the look together, and, for me, is my favourite item of the whole look! From River Island, this chic, faux fur, feathered, black and gold embellished piece, not only screams occasion, but it elicits something of a richer quality and design. I adore it! I paired it with a simple black shirt, from Topshop, and a similarly embellished black and gold skirt, also from Topshop (in their HQ sample sale). My belt, featured before within this blog post, is also from River Island.
To me, an outfit like this should be worn at a special occasion within the winter months. It’s not too formal, yet is still very elegant, classy and has an edge of high end fashion to it, despite all the items being from the hightstreet! It just proves how inexpensive an outfit can be, just with the right accompaniments and a striking lip!
If you’ve found any classic black and gold items recently and have posted about them on your blog, leave me a link…i’d love to see them!
