What I Wore: Day 1 LCM

At the moment I've become inspired by a leather on leather aesthetic as seen on the Vetements A/W catwalk that I had the privilege of seeing at Paris Fashion Week. Their oversized monochromatic tailoring and brightly hued everyday wear included some truly inspired styling.

Unfortunately, not every petite girl can get away with oversized colour-blocked biker wear, so I'll be sticking to some Via Spiga over-the-knee boots (last seen here) and keeping my leather jackets cropped.

A bright jacket is a wardrobe game changer, an item that can always be pulled out of the back of the closet to be the exception to the rule on a gloomy day.
Make a statement using any one of the jackets below:
