I had been wanting to experiment with wearing sneakers under a skinny pantsuit for a while. But for some reason, my inhibitions had been holding me back. However, ever since I started personal style shoots for the blog, I have slowly been stepping out of my comfort zone and started to have fun with trying on various looks. For a predictable person like me, who almost always sticks to a set personal style mantra, it wasn't easy. Because I don't have the perfect body type, I'm always a bit conscious.
But that day, I said to hell with it! Lets do this. Especially since it was such an easy look to put together. I fished out my go to and extremely flattering black formal jacket, my skinny trousers and my favourite sneakers. Because a suit is on the masculine side, I wanted to add a feminine touch to it. I didn't want to wear a boring tank top so I used a twenty year old pale pink slip blouse (a hand me down from my mother) with lace detailing near the bust to wear under the jacket. I loved the sheer lace on it as it felt really sexy and the black bra I wore under worked just perfectly. In addition, slip tops and dresses are trending majorly so I didn't feel too off track.
The best part about this outfit was that I didn't have to buy a single thing. Most of the separates are wardrobe essentials, so they're probably in your closet already! All you have to do is pull them out.
