True Blue

True Blue - OOTD - Fashion - Brag & Bone

Something you may not know about me: I’m a second year English Language student at the University of Manchester, but before this I spent two years studying History of Art at the same institution. This means I’ve lived in the wonderful city of Manchester for almost four years and I can honestly say I feel incredibly lucky to call it my home. My favourite place within the city is undeniably the Northern Quarter; a neighbourhood full of vibrant, independent restaurants, unique music venues and some of the best vintage shops outside of London. You also can’t turn a corner without encountering some truly beautiful street art, making it the perfect location for shooting an OOTD post.

It’s funny how trends work. If you’d asked me whether I’d have worn matching light-wash double denim five years ago, I’d have told you to piss off. There was no way in hell I was going to look like Britney Spears circa 2001. At the moment on the other hand, I love it and am turning to it a lot in transeasonal dressing. The colour of the denim feels spring-like and a little more youthful than darker washes. I also love the silhouette created by the raw-edged cropped jacket and high-waisted jeans.

On this occasion I layered the denim jacket over a grey knitted turtleneck. Despite being April, it’s still really cold and a warmer piece was definitely required under such a thin jacket. I accessorised with my Gucci belt-bag and a pair of pure white Air Max 95s, adding a hint of colour with a magenta velvet hairband.
