Chainmail is taking over this autumn and turning up the drama in our wardrobes.
I remember how much I wanted this Topshop chainmail top in 2015. If I remember correctly I wore this for my second blogpost.
I decided that this time I would team it with all black clothing and accessories to keep all the attention on this top. Chainmail really helps to keep your wardrobe exciting during the colder months and reminds me that the festive period is just around the corner -eeek.
This top speaks ultra 90s to me but to keep it looking classy I teamed it with plain black jeans and boots from Topshop also, and my circle cross body bag from ASOS to create a simple city look. If you wanted to keep the look more 90s you could team a chainmail top with mom jeans. However, I wanted to create quite a streamlined look which would be perfect for a day of mixed events and an outfit which has a touch of sass.
I am seeking a skirt with tassels or a feather trim to wear with some of my tops and especially to help me wear this top more throughout winter. That will also help me to create a festive look quite quickly without spending too much.
You may want to pick a chainmail vest top for an evening look which you could team with black wide trousers or culottes for a more dramatic look which includes touches of femininity, masculinity and size. Then you could team it with a dark cardigan for the day and a black high waisted suede skirt to really play with different textures.
It’s time to add a bit of sparkle to your wardrobe!
