A Unique Spin On The Power Suit
Happy Thursday! I have a small double photoshoot for you to see today! I’m going to get straight to it as well, so I was wearing a modern take on a power suit that I thought was really cool. I combined the Lovers + Friends Orion Crop Top with the matching Lovers + Friends Miro Pants (gifted by Revolve) and I like how the combination looks! The suit pattern itself is a check in pale pink and black on a grey background, making it pretty unique and interesting. The trousers, as you can see, come with a waist tie which I showcased with and without, as I wasn’t sure which I liked best. The trousers are a bit long for me as I’m not very tall, so they could be a bit shorter, but overall, it’s pretty cool. The bandeau style crop top zips up at the back and has silicone areas to keep it up. For everyone wondering, I went for a size medium in the top and a small in the trousers and it seems to fit quite well.
For the rest of the look, I layered my Reiss White Blazer (similar here) over my shoulders to pull it together and give it a bit more modesty. I got this blazer a couple of years ago and it has an oversize fit, which I think paired nicely with these pieces. Then getting to my accessories, I chose my Valentino Lock Bag in Ivory and my Jimmy Choo Romy 85 Shoes (similar here). I originally was thinking about doing grey shoes, but it was too much overall and as much as I don’t usually like brown and grey together, it sort of worked regarding this look. I did originally try my Christian Louboutin Pigalle in Black, but it was too intense. Then for those of you who noticed the necklace, it’s by Design Letters and I mentioned it briefly in my other outfit post, but this time I chose to wear my silver L charm with a silver star and white marble disk. It’s so versatile!
Now for Adam’s look, we hadn’t originally planned to wear this together, but we were dressed ready for our shoots on the day, and I thought some photos of us together side by side would be nice as we were both wearing suits. His is of course a tweed set by House of Cavani as he was channeling a Peaky Blinders ensemble, as I’m sure you can tell, but I liked how the two looks paired well in a contrasting way. My suit is very modern and daring, with a much more unique take, while Adam’s is extremely traditional, classic and vintage inspired, which you can really see clearly next to each other, so I had a lot of fun with that. Thanks to my mum for taking the shots too! Let me know what you think of both mine and Adam’s looks here! Lorna xx.
P.S. – I have a small announcement/blog post coming on Sunday that I think you will like!
