Casual: How to style a suit

Suits… They can be corporate, you can dress them up for occasions and are perfect for interviews but I wanted to do something a little different with mine. This is the first time I’ve ever bought / worn a suit before, I bought this from Missguided. I wanted to again try something different but still style it in a way that’s ‘me’. Suit’s don’t always have to be business like or corporate and they don’t always have to be paired with heels.

I’m sure you’ll know by now I’m all about getting out my comfort zone and challenging myself to do things I’ve never done before. This is definitely way out of mine. You have to stop caring about what other people think of you and just get on with doing what you want to do.

Flares are a big trend at the moment and I can’t get enough of them, when picking a suit I knew they HAD to be fares. I never usually wear white, usually because whenever I do I get it dirty, I mean whilst doing this shoot I managed to dip my sleeve in my coffee….

I’ve been reading Girl Boss for a little while now (I’m a slow reader) and it made sense to find an appropriate tee from Nasty Gal to pair with this outfit. Theres been a little obsession with Red which you may have noticed if not then I did a post on how Red makes me feel – Bold, Badass and Brave. Why Red is my new favourite colour. I love a pair of kicks, I always have done since I was younger, I had a pair of everything. Can anyone remember those babycham trainers which were in like 10 years ago, I had them in every colour and pattern. I had pairs of Air max, Adidas and Tn’s scattered around my room as a child/teenager, I remember one pair my Dad got me a size too small because I begged and begged for the pink and white Nike shocks and they didn’t have my size… safe to say I would never go through that pain again. I’ve continued my love for Nike growing up and JD Women/Junior always have my back when finding the perfect pair.

Topping my outfit off, I got a new pair of headphones from Urbanz I of course chose the Red ones, which they kindly gifted me to go alongside my outfit. I have a 45% discount code : laurenblack45 on any headphones on their website. Bass is on point and crisp as I would expect! I have the ones with wires but they do wireless ones and ones which are perfect for the gym all for a really really good price. I also found a really nice place in Shoreditch (sorry going off track) but it’s a clothing store on Shoreditch high street called AIDA and they have amazing coffee!! Deffo my new spot anyway.
