3 Ways: Classic Trousers

two tone oxfords

About two weeks ago I did a shoot with LOFT to promote their re-designed trousers.  I had to style them 3 different ways based around my chosen theme: menswear of course ; -)
Look 1
I wanted to recreate a tuxedo look so added the LOFT shirt and jacket. I flipped the shirt collar to standing (to look more like a tux) and wrapped my own spotted tie around it.  Finished the look with my two tone brogues.

I almost wore their candy coloured striped clutch but saved it for the last look (see last photo!)

Look 2:
Styled the same trousers around their school boy-like navy blazer (I want this for Autumn) and their spotted shirt.  I added Michael’s neck tie and my own purple fedora.   Finished with LOFT’s embellished canary yellow clutch although I think either clutch would’ve worked!

 You’ll see in the shoot pics below that I switched from silver to black shoes. I also changed the blazer sleeves to long with the shirt peaking out to look like mens shirt cuffs – all teeny adjustments.

Look 3:
I went for a bit of mod 60s with the shirt under their striped jumper. I added my own jeweled broach at the collar, a newsboy cap and silver winkle pickers. Here’s that striped clutch, I loved it with this look.
I had a brilliant time doing this shoot with LOFT based around their re-designed trousers – plus I got to find a pair to fit my shape (back waist gape is my biggest problem).  See the trousers with vintage and  heels in this earlier post.  If you have a similar shape/issue, the style of my particular ones are Marisa ankle pant (they come in 3 different style names).

    Look one is hands down my favorite! 🙂 … If Janelle Monae wore color in her life she would like like some of these looks.
