Sunday Style Showdown | DENIM JACKET

Hello everyone!
Welcome to our first ever Sunday Style Showdown (SSS) post!For our very first SSS, we're featuring a wardrobe essential -- the ever versatile and timeless DENIM JACKET. Christine and I both own the same jacket from Uniqlo, so you get to see how the same piece can be integrated into different looks for today's post.

I'm going for a smart-casual everyday look here. This is an outfit that I would usually wear to school(hence the bagpack). I like to match pretty, floral skirts with a casual T-shirt for the nice contrast between feminine/cool elements.I chose a white word tee for this outfit because denim+white is a classic. Adding a denim jacket ups the edge factor of the outfit and the blue denim complements the pink of the skirt well. As El mentioned, denim & white is a classic hence the cream tee to go with the denim jacket. Throw the jacket 'round the shoulders if the weather is scorching hot (like Singapore) but you need one to complete the look. To spice things up and add colour, I went with red lips and red printed trousers. Tip: Red goes really well with denim too, so rock those red lips. I kept the rest of my accessories (bag, shoes, jewellery) in neutral tones (black and cream) so the trousers can stand out.

As the look is mostly focused on the outfit, there's no need to accessorize much. Hence I just added these 2 ribbon hair clips that don't really stand out but has a pretty pink colour which goes with the outfit's colours
If you ask what's the focus of my outfit, I'd have to say the trousers. It's red, it's printed and it has skulls all over my legs. Can't have anything more in-your-face than those trousers. Therefore, the classic denim jacket is the perfect match and this one from Uniqlo cuts off at the perfect place.
