Vest - Bitching and Junkfood, Leggings/Skirt - Borderline Apparel, Boots - Topman, Snapback - Urban Outfitters
One of the biggest, and also one of my favourite trends for spring/summer 15 is the bondage influence seen on the catwalk. Usually when I do this trend I go for a smarter look - pairing an actual harness with a clean white shirt or a blazer. For this post I wanted a more casual take on the trend. I found this vest in the Topshop sale and knew I had to have it! It's by Bitching and Junkfood - a really cool brand who produce really edgy womenswear. I think it's meant to be a dress, but I think it looks really cool worn as a long-line vest, especially with long-line clothing being another massive menswear trend for spring/summer 15. I like that the harness detail is printed, making the look a bit softer, and less bondage-y. I decided to keep the look monochrome (surprise, surprise), and kept everything else black, apart from my white boots. The skirt detail on my Borderline Apparel leggings works really well with the length of the vest, with the asymmetric panels poking out nicely from the bottom of it. Giving the look a street edge I simply accessorized with my leather snapback. The weather is so unpredictable at the moment, wearing lightweight jersey seems to be the best bet for surviving the clammy heat, and this outfit is perfect for achieving that.
