Zip It Black - Part 1

Sweater - Boohoo.com, Gilet - Topman, Jeans - Vivienne Westwood Anglomania, Boots - Aldo, Chain - Topshop

Black on black is always a strong menswear trend, so easy and chic to wear. Another major trend at the moment is Zip detailing, and there are so many pieces on the high street at the moment getting the zip detail spot on. Inspired by the likes of Preen, Phillip Lim and Acne, I decided to do a two part post that combines both of these trends. For my first part I have gone for a tougher, casual approach. The key piece of the outfit is the fantastic Zip Sleeve sweat from Boohoo.com. I like how you can half unzip the sleeves to show a bit of flesh. So as not to cover this up, but still include a bit of layering, I threw on my leather gilet. Continuing with zipped up theme, I wore the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania jeans I purchased from the sample sale I went to, that I had to customize with zips so that I could get them over my feet! My chunky black boots keep the look tough. Keep an eye out for my second post, that will be a more androgynous take on the trends.
