I used to wear stupid amounts of black, but my wardrobe has seemed to shift somewhat towards grey, which I think has to be my new favourite colour to wear. (To prove a point, as I am sitting here typing this I am wearing a stripped black and grey Zara top with my black Whistles skinny jeans which have basically faded to grey at this point). I think my favourite 'grayscale' purchase so far has to be this amazing asymmetric Forever 21 skirt which was a 19th birthday present to myself.
Asymmetric Skirt: Forever 21, Striped Tee: Boden, Black Heels: Pedro Miralles c/o Spartoo, Nail Polish: Orly 'Purple Crush' c/o Orly
There is a curious thing about this skirt. It was under £20 from Forever 21, but when I went to wash it after a couple of train journeys wearing it and running around London, I discovered that it was dry clean only. Seriously? The dry cleaning would cost more than the skirt did! After asking around on Twitter I found that this is the case with lots of Forever 21 clothing, which I really don't think is very good. It turns out that after I checked the label my mint green asymmetric tee is hand wash only! I braved the wash with this skirt and as you can see it has turned out okay, albeit not as beautiful and pleated as before. But seriously? Even my Whistles pleat skirt is machine washable!
Still, I just simply love how these skirts look as you are walking along, blowing out in the wind and I think I am going to be totally wearing it half to death this summer!
Do you feel that a certain colour is simply taking over your wardrobe?
