Holes In My Apologies

One of my favourite past collections from Givenchy involved the layering of shorts with masculine patent tights. The result made for a formal/informal mash up, where crisp bib shirts met studs and sticky black shorts. Even the peacoats had a sophisticated gothic hint to them through the asymmetric shape. It's the legwear layering that really stayed with me though, and I tried out my own interpretation today. It might not be black and gothic based, and more of the countryside vibe, but jodhpurs with postman shorts makes for a friendly every-day version. In other news, make sure you check out DRAMA and SPINDLE magazines that I'm currently writing for, the launch of STYLEGUN on the right of my site, and the lookbook outfits I'm currently selling in CHARLIE'S CLOSET!
