#19. AllSaints + ASOS OOTD.

Whilst I’m sure the anomalous shades of last night’s outfit post are still fresh in your mind, I figured that my next look would need to redirect from the world of colour back into the cloudy gloom of greys and blacks that I’m much more comfortable with – and that you guys are more accustomed to seeing me wear. Yes, I’ll grant you that those little splashes of crimson or cobalt or pine green can genuinely lift your look from a sense of dullness that isn’t so suited to summer weather, but as I mentioned yesterday, the time for the sun-worshippers is almost over and my wardrobe has finally begun to feel appropriate again.

I know I also mentioned that the viscose AllSaints shirts were being buried away in exchange for thicker, warmer pieces, but luck would have it (or design skill and stylistic talent would have it) that AllSaints’ flannels and winter shirts are just as good, if not better, than their silken counterparts. Today’s look features my favourite flannel shirt; a weighty charcoal and smoke piece, with checked patterning and exterior stitching. The rest of my outfit belongs to ASOS; I paired the shirt with a plain black tee, tucked into washed black skinny jeans, and fastened with a studded black leather belt. For shoes, I went for the black part-suede, part-leather pair that I found on their site for £20 a few months ago. Proper bargain.

Today’s look is visually a stark contrast from yesterday’s, what with the lack of hues beyond slate, crow and graphite. It’s definitely the sort of thing I enjoy wearing a little more – that said, it’s always nice to have a flash of colour on the odd occasion.

Hopefully you enjoyed this post, and possibly found some inspiration for a look which you could put together yourself. My next piece will be up on Saturday, in which I’ll be searching for the top 5 Chelsea boots online for under £50. I have an immeasurable love for Chelsea boots, so that should be fun.
