I hope ya’ll are having a lovely week so far. I’ve been working on this post and this look in particular for a while now. I didn’t know what exactly to do it but I’m excited for you all to see the end result.
I put together a simple black vest, a white skater skirt and thigh high socks plus boots for this look.
Thigh high socks have been a trend for the past couple of months and can be paired with anything, as long as it’s short. I’ve been longing to try them for such a long time so when I got them at Toi market for just a hundred shillings I was beyond excited.
For other outfit ideas, you could try short shorts for a night out, a short loose dress or a skater dress or skirt like I did. I had to fold the socks to knee length since the skirt was a bit too long for the socks.
I’ve had this skirt for the past two or so years. I found the material at home from my mum’s stack and the fact that it was black and white just did it for me.
I personally prefer getting clothes tailor made than buying at stores because they tend to fit better. I got the skirt done at Kidosho – I think they’re located at Prestige Plaza now – for around 1000/1500 Kshs which was a bargain considering such skirts or dresses usually go for more in retail shops.
Apart from thrift shopping I also love buying (shoes in specific) on online shops especially on Instagram. This way, you get nice unique shoes which most of the time are cheaper than in actual shops.
I found these particular boots on @glam_kenya on Instagram for just 2800 Kshs. They’re most comfortable heels I have and that’s what I Iove most about them.
For a more sophisticated and versatile look, ditch the boots plus the socks and put on a pair of black pumps.
You could also just put on a pair of simple sandals for a day to day look.
This is definitely a look that can be pulled of by anyone of any shape or size. Fashion is all about trying new things and getting out of your comfort zone so get your thigh high socks, pumps or sandals and try this look too!
Enjoy the rest of your week loves.
Stay ready for my next post, I have a something exciting lined up.
