When I saw this image online I was immediately in love. The contrasting dark colours, the crop top, the high-waisted pants paired with this long coat. I was all in. This classic style paired with the more modern crop-top look is exactly the type of fashion that we need more of. For so many reasons this outfit is amazing.
Some reasons as to why this outfit works.
Accessories are kept to a minimum. The outfit speaks for itself and so no accessories are needed as they will actually take away from this look.
The colours are both dark and therefore, serious and this pairs well with the overall sophisticated look. This models hair is loose and this works with the overall symmetry of this look.
The turtleneck neckline looks clean paired with this coat’s traditional style collar. The fabric of this coat is also very retro and screams the nineties and I am here for it. This reminds me very much of Prue Halliwell in Charmed where she wore big black leather coats with crop tops and high waisted slacks. She looked stunning.
This whole outfit is sophisticated and timeless and if I had my way – more people would be taking charge like this with fashion.
