A trend that has been making its entrance into the world again is leather on leather. With the likes of Alexander Wang and Derek Lam showcasing their designs decked out in a complete leather ensemble and making it look so good, I thought I'd give it a try especially since I love the look of fashion pieces made of leather because they just add another element into an outfit.
Creative takes on the "V" front from those that plunge all the way down to the waist and even under the belly button to upside down "Vs" on bomber jackets have also been seen strutting the runway from fashion designers like Yves Saint Laurent and Givenchy to Jonathan Saunders.
When I spotted this little leather number in Cotton On on sale one day, I snatched it especially since it was the last one in my size. It was already marked down from HK$199 to $60 and when the saleslady said "$25 please", I was in shock and I couldn't believe my luck:D The super deep V is a little too daring and provocative for my more reserved self to wear so when I found this top, I really felt like I hit the jackpot, not only because of the price and its fashion forward aspect but also because it isn't super revealing and showed only a small patch of skin.
To balance the upside down V crop top, I paired it with a pink midi skirt from River Island via Zalora. I got the pink skirt for my friend's 18th birthday (Her debut) because her theme was light pink or mint green.
I realized that this is such a spring trend-heavy outfit; Midi skirt, Leather on Leather and the "V" front. Talk about killing two birds with one stone. (More like 3, ahaha)
The leather crop top was what I was originally going to wear but because there were going to be parents, I wanted to be dress more conservatively so I switched it with a chambray shirt. Here are a few pictures from my friend's birthday (She's the one on the left:3)
So, what do you think of my outfit?:)
