If you’re a regular reader of Christian Confidential, you’ve probably picked up on my love for classic pieces. For me, I think they’re the perfect items to invest in, mainly because they never go out of style and they’re great foundations to build an outfit around. As much as I love the classics, I also enjoy it when brands take a classic item like a cardigan and put a modern twist on it. The classic cardigan is a staple item in my closet but this updated version, really took it to another level for me. Making it oversized and adding additional length to the body gives the cardigan a little more swag, while maintaining it’s original preppy vibes.What I’m Wearing
Striped Shawl Collar Cardigan: Forever 21
Polo: Lacoste | Khaki Joggers | Shoes: Lacoste
“The only rule is don’t be boring and dress cute wherever you go. Life is too short to blend in” – Paris Hilton
Usually I don’t find myself agreeing with Paris on anything to be honest but in this case she just may be right. Fashion is an amazing outlet to really share with the world how you’re feeling and in this style post I feel like I can take on anything. I’m not sure if its the shoes.. actually it’s definitely the shoes that have given me that extra confidence boost to pull off this look. There’s just something about a vibrant red that just instantly takes your look to another level. – and in return making it the focal point of your outfit.Throwing in an eye catching colour like red into your outfit can make the world of a difference, for women it can be as easy as applying some red lipstick or rocking a pair of Louboutin’s. – for men a red fitted cap or a pair of sneakers like the Yeezy’s or these new bad boys called ‘The Broadwick’ from Lacoste’s upcoming SS 15 line. I can’t wait to share more with you guys what the brand has in store for next season!
What I’m Wearing
Leather Motorcycle Jacket – Diesel | Basic Black Tank – H&M | Plaid Shirt – Club Monaco| Red Broadwick shoes SS15 (Not In Stores Yet) – Lacoste |Running Tights – NIKE | Square Tortoise Aviator Sunglasses – FOREVER21 | Custom Denim Shorts – Levis |
It was such a pleasure working on this project with the Lacoste team. I hope that you guys found some pieces from the collaboration that you’ll be incorporating into your Summer wardrobe. What I loved most about styling these looks and fashion in general is the ability to tell a story with each outfit. I’m the happiest in the Summer months and I let everyone know that through my fashion choices by infusing a lot more colour than usual. -Hence the reason most of these looks have bright or playful elements to them like the beautiful yellow ‘Taffeta Windbreaker’ & the simple yet youthful ‘Seersucker dress’.
