is one of ASOS' 'new season now' trends - I was excited to be challenged to style up these pointed monk shoes. I feel like this fairly androgynous look is more modern Victorian man than anything (although I do love
the more feminine gothic lace pieces from the trend.) I love the silver-grey pattern on the shoes, and the point and small heel which makes them perfect for smarting up an otherwise fairly casual outfit like this. I wore them here with: a slouchy, oversized grey pinstripe jumper from Primark, one of my favourite throw-on pieces for university at the moment; trusty ASOS duster coat; and some angle grazing, dark navy tailored trousers from a JW Anderson for Topshop collection, which I bagged in the sale a year or two ago.
I'm also wearing glasses!! I have recently become a glasses-wearer (although I only need them for lectures), so of course I was quite excited to find the cutest frames I could. This pair is by London Retro, from Glasses Direct. They're a really lovely shape but are also super simple so they go with everything - ideal for me to just keep in my bag and put on whenever I need them.
