Velvet and Checked Trousers

Hey everyone! Today’s post was shot at the beautiful Somerset House and I’m just in love with the mint green walls and ornate spiral staircase. This look draws upon a combination that is loved by many- a crop top and high-waisted trousers. I think it’s so popular not just because it’s trendy but because it makes your legs look longer and I mean who wouldn’t want that! This black velvet crop top works well with these checked black and white trousers. The trousers are a oversized, relaxed fit so the fitted top compliments them well. I am a big fan of oversized clothing because I don’t like feeling too constrained by what I’m wearing. However, I have to admit that I do have to remind myself not to walk around looking like a sack of potatoes on many an occasion haha!

A black beret and intricate gold earrings are nice additions to the outfit and the heeled boots make it appropriate for a night out. I would also switch out the heeled boots for trainers or slip ons if I’m having a ‘run-around’ day (this is a characteristic of most days for me!). I’ve kept my makeup neutral with brown winged liner and a pinky nude lip. Hope you like- Enjoy!
