BTW Challenge (Day 5).

BTW Challenge (Day 5).

TGIF. No really. TG.

For those of you that have participated in the challenge – you are awesome. And inspiring. Sharing your wardrobes has helped me understand you more and I love knowing my readers. So thank you so much for taking the time and being brave enough to bring your style online.

So… Day Five Mufti. For men that’s no suit and tie, for kids it’s no uniform and for me it’s almost fancy dress. I have two standard Mufti looks both inspired by Los Angeles. Here they are:

The Ellen.

When I was editing Madison the fashion team and I had a mufti uniform which was named after Ellen DeGeneres. It was the fall back look when we just couldn’t be bothered to try any harder. There were days when all six of us were wearing a version of her suit, t-shirt, & sneaker staples.

It’s become my travel outfit and is the perfect mufti look because it’s conservative enough to take a meeting.

Wearing: Tuxedo jacket from Alexander McQueen, grey marle crop top from Supre, oatmeal tank from Bassike, black wool pants from Country Road and Nike Free Sneakers.

The sunglasses are Ray-Ban Blue Mirrored Aviators – finally in the country and at Sunglasses Hut. Run.

The Nicole.

This one is inspired by Nicole Richie.

I still love looking at her outfits. This looks is not going to be appropriate for every office but in my world it’s standard issue and if I lose the heels and the jacket I’m in school-run clothes faster than you can say “Paris Hilton used to be my BFF”. Just make sure you keep the shorts mid-thigh and baggy.

Wearing: Tuxedo jacket from Alexander McQueen, vintage Beatles t-shirt, Supre cut-offs (why pay more for rips?), gold cuff from Tiffany, skull ring from Diva.
