Black & Gold

For me, there’s something luxurious about the combination of black & gold, it’s classy and instantly oozes glamour. I’ve got a one piece, two ways post for you today, featuring a glitzy black & gold number from Blue Vanilla*. As everyone knows, I love a bit of black, so what better way to add a bit of colour – and glitz – than with this simple skirt.

The skirt itself is made of thick material and I love the texture, which feels as though it’s almost quilted. It’s so stretchy as well and although it has a chunky waistband, I’m too tall to wear it as high-waisted. It’s the perfect length, so can be worn with or without tights. So here are the two looks I’ve gone for.

Black & Gold by day
Top – H&M
Jumper – H&M
Skirt – c/o Blue Vanilla*
Boots – New Look
Bag – Ted Baker

I’ve tried to keep this look simple for an everyday outfit, which could be suitable for work, or even a weekend social event. It’s pretty casual and it’s all about layering. I’ve chosen my Ted Baker bag to accompany the look, as it’s my everyday hand bag and I honestly couldn’t be without it. I’ve kept my makeup really simple too – I don’t overdo it for work – and have used by BaBylis Curl Secret on the lowest setting to give my hair an effortless wave.

Black & Gold by night
Top – New Look
Blazer – New Look
Skirt – c/o Blue Vanilla*
Boots – Boo Hoo
Bag – New Look
Necklace – New Look
Ring – AX Paris

Again, I’ve gone for a simple look for the evening, but added accessories to add a touch of glamour. My chunky necklace from New Look is my absolute favourite and easily makes a statement. I’d probably wear this out with a pair of killer or strappy heels, but I threw mine out the weekend of my birthday as they got destroyed in London *sad face*! If I’m not going all out, I’d always wear a top tucked into a skirt, which is why this look is perfect for an evening occasion.

I’ve also matched the outfits to two of my favourite fragrances:
Day – Daisy by Marc Jacobs
Night – Desire Me by Escada (check out that black & gold bottle!)
