BOOTS MANOEVRE

A quick look through the street style shots on Elle.co.uk revealed a clear favourite for me...

I like the way in which the outfit has been constructed, the xl sizing of the shaggy faux fur monster coat and midi length skirt with clumpy boots shouldn't work, but does. This outfit's success is in the small details...a fresh face and unfussy top knot stop it from looking too calculated, a fairly plain skirt/tights allow attention to focus on the more extravagant details. The boots add an element of distasteful humour - verging on cyber goth - and a heel steers the outfit away from frumpy. My favourite of outfits are those that look thrown together, bohemian, but balanced, and this one ticks the boxes.
