A Tiny Bit Dramatic

So it took to the end of February to shatter my New Year's resolution well and truly. But what a way to break it. 

Like my fellow writers before me, I thought the Windows on the World release last week was so so good for its interesting pieces and range. My favourite is this dramatic jacket which was crying out for black, black and more black. I've gone for a re-imagining of the tuxedo, complete with silk scarf and cravat because sometimes you have to be extra on a Tuesday.

It's a wide jacket, so I've used black tights underneath the leather sweatpants to cheat the length of the leg. Usually, I'd crop the trousers for a little flash of ankle, but I wanted more of a liquid, seamless effect. I tried to add white shirt sleeves because I'm just so trendy, but actually, I think the shorter sleeve elongates the silhouette even more. 
What's on the menu? Legs.

To lighten it all up, I've added some flashes of blue, keeping the palette simple against the red lip. Then finally, a pair of little sunglasses perched right on the end of the nose for maximum shade.
