Off-duty ensembles should be part-comfy, part-sassy, part fun-part classy, cool enough to be hot.
I like to keep it simple with neutrals but sass it up with bold colours and accessories. Best of both worlds, would you say?

As much as I hate admitting it, sometimes I do get swayed by popular trends. But I always try to personalise a trend and give it my touch. This season, the animal trend has caught my attention once more. As I mentioned here, I absolutely love the animal trend. It is daring, powerful and feisty. This AW animal prints have taken a whole new level with designers experimenting with all kinds of prints from leopard to python and also unabashedly using animal motifs. I can’t deny I am happily smitten.
Here, I’ve paired a leopard print pencil skirt with a chambray shirt. I absolutely love the pencil skirt; nothing compliments your curves like a pencil skirt. It is subtle and sensual at the same time. I think everyone should have a chambray shirt, it is perhaps the most versatile garment ever invented. I love both and here I thought why not combine my two loves?
I’ve accessorised with a waist-cincher belt statement earrings, a subtle necklace, cocktail ring and a simple clutch to ensure the focus remains on the skirt.

So, tell me would you join the bandwagon and let loose the animal in you? C’mon don’t be shy it is daring I promise you.
