One of my favourite trends of 2014 has been casual tailoring, even more so when it's monochrome. Looking clean cut and comfy has got to be outfit perfection hasn't it? and is pretty simple too. This has turned into a go-to outfit the last few weeks for lunch dates and days out shopping.
A simple white shirt is the perfect way to start this look as it looks so good with simply skinny jeans or a patterened cigarette trouser for something more interesting. Is it me or does houndstooth just never go out of fashion? I love this classic black and white print and these trousers have served me veryyy well this season. The pattern adds the exact amount of interest needed in a simple monochromatic outfit.
A mensy blazer is good for layering up or a structed boyfriend coat for when it's a little nippier. I love the androgynous finishes to the tailored trend and I had been eye-ing this blazer up on Lizzy for so long, I finally gave in when Glamour gave me a 25% off code and I'm so pleased I did, it fits like a dream! To make the look more day-time friendly I had to go for a trainer and my b+w vans were spot on.
What's been your fave trend from 2014? I can't wait to see what next year brings!
