White Shirt - Topshop
Jeans - River Island (Old)
Chunky Sandals - New Look
Black Frilly Socks - Topshop
Choker - eBay

I am once again sporting an outfit comprised of monochrome.  Maybe I was a penguin in a previous life?  Or a panda.  Yes that's it, I was a panda.

White shirts are divinely easy to style and wear, and they actually look like you have made an effort with your outfit.  They are such a brilliant staple piece too have hanging up in your wardrobe as they can be thrown on for so many different occasions.  

I chose quite a basic white shirt from Topshop, with pocket detailing on each side of the chest.  Here I have tucked it into my black ripped skinny jeans to give it more of an edge.  I wore these chunky white sandals in my last outfit post, but I just love them so much and thought they went so well with the outfit!  I love the sharp contrast between the black socks and white sandals, and the frills add a dash of cuteness. 

I bought this new choker from eBay, and it is actually a velvety material, which I love!  If your looking to buy a choker, I would definitely recommend eBay.  There are tonnes of different ones at very cheap prices!

  8. Looks like I've found another Alice Young fashion blogger (with the same love for the 90s). The monochrome outfit looks fab, and I'll always advocate the socks and sandals look!

  15. You pulled this look together perfectly. It is so refreshing to see somebody take risks with style. I never see girls wearing chokers anymore, but I couldn't be more obsessed with them. Can't wait to keep reading your blog!
