The real deal from Givenchy...
Well well, this immediately calls for a DIY project! All I needed was a pair of leggings/ tights. Okay I have to admit that I totally found out that leggings end above the ankles, and tights, on the other hand cover the feet completely. I mistakenly bought tights, as a result they had to be snipped above the ankles so they can be pulled up to the knees.
After a mere minute of cutting... voila, here's my own little attempt on the look. I combined different dark shades and textures to give the outfit some essence. However it occurs to me that some improvement, at least stylistically can be done here. Maybe the boots and upside down cardigan can be replaced with some other unexpected items. Poor styling aside, I was excited to experiment this look, even just for blogging sake only!
Taxi cardigan, Bershka sequined vest, Cheap Monday sleeveless top, American Athletics chinos shorts, thrifted boots, snipped black tights
If you ask me whether this is the trend that I'm clinging on to this season, I'm afraid nay is the answer, because....
