How to wear a statement shirt

Pink and grey abstract shirt: ASOS (similar)
Grey wrap over coat: New Look
Grey skinny jeans: New Look
Grey faux suede mid heels: Matalan (similar)
Black cross over bag: Next (similar)

My uniform at the minute seems to be a shirt and skinny jeans. Every single day. Stuck in a style rut or found my personal style? You tell me... One day I might break those midi skirts out of storage when my legs have stopped resembling milk bottles. Anyway back to the statement shirt. As I'm wearing shirts 24/7 I like them to be lairy. The louder the better in my opinion. With a loud shirt I like to pick out one of the colours and base the rest of my outfit around that. This time I've gone for grey palette. I brought this warp around coat in a size up so it keeps me nice and cosy during the colder months. So to help counteract the bagginess and avoid looking too much like a barrel, I've gone for grey skinny jeans and a pair of heels to dress it up a bit. Nothing quite like walking around feeling like you've been wrapped in a blanket!

Thanks to my mega babe Sarah for taking the pictures.
