When Missguided (one of my absolute favourite Manchester based brands) asked me to select my perfect Manchester outfit from their vast array of items, I couldn't have been more excited! The outfit I ended up with is definitely a recent favourite of mine too, and every single bit is from Missguided. I chose it as my perfect Manchester outfit as I feel like the black and grey represent our usually grey weather well, but also the combination of tailored trousers, a roll neck knit and heeled boots have that 'city chic' vibe. I have worn each of these pieces, especially the jacket
, roll neck jumper
, and biker boots
, in other outfits since they arrived too, as they're all such great basics and ideal for layering. I'm especially pleased with the jumper, which I can tuck my hair into for style points and to disguise a bad hair day, and how fab is this Stella McCartney dupe bag
Because my outfit wasn't at all colourful, I opted for a pop of blue eyeshadow using Illamasqua Powder Eye Shadow in 'Imagine'. I always find myself loving colour pop eyes on other people but am rarely brave enough to try it myself, usually preferring a bolder lip and a neutral eye. What do you think?
