RED ALERT | 26.2.16
You couldn't tell from this outfit but I don't actually like the colour red, it's probably my least favourite colour which is why I'm always going to and from this jacket. I've had it for years now and the idea of a bad ass red leather jacket has always made my heart sing but sometimes I look at it hanging on my rail and think, 'is that seriously ugly or can I pull this off?'. Most of the time I don't care if I can pull something off or not but this isn't the most subtle jacket in existence so it does take some balls to don it and as if the colour wasn't enough the studs and cropped length add to the ballsiness even more to make it a seriously out there piece.
Top - American Apparel, denim waistcoat - vintage, jacket - Forever 21 (similar), jeans - Topshop, boots - Ted & Muffy, sunglasses - Primark (mens)
At the moment I'm on the love end of the spectrum and have all sorts of strong feelings for the jacket. I'm thinking it's because it goes so well with a standard Breton t-shirt or this red, white and blue number from American Apparel as well as my dozens of Stones shirts. It also makes a change from my every day black leather which I'm trying to wean myself off of as I'm starting to think my outfits are getting a bit standard and lazy. What says non-standard more than a crimson red jacket and boots to match? Go hard or go home! In this instance I probably went too hard and should of left the booties at home because boy, that is a lot of red especially for someone who hates that colour. Great, am I now back to hating it? I just can't make my mind up.
