At first, I didn’t want to take away from the original, brightly coloured lime green by introducing another variation of our Lola earrings, but after playing around with the white... well, there was just no turning back.
There’s something so refreshing about the colour white - that is, if you can keep it white. Not only does it go with pretty much anything you wear it with, but I feel as though with a bit of sparkle and a touch of gold, the colour white transforms from ordinary, to extraordinary!
My first outfit of choice is plain & simple, a compilation of girl next door meets tomboy. I chose a classic striped tee for this look and distressed denim as I always relate this look to a tomboy (maybe due to my childhood obsession of the TV character Alex Mack?!) To add a little extra, I teamed it up with a mustard cross-body bag and low key leopard heels, as keeping it plain & simple doesn’t mean boring.
This look is ideal for when you want to feel feminine but not over the top “girly girl”. Not one to wear heels? No worries! Opt for a pair of tanned gladiator sandals or low rise connies (and by connies I mean Converse)!
The next look is Tres Chic. This is someone who always looks on point - but I guess that’s all in the name itself, isn’t it?! Pairing a classic pinstripe, corsage tailored vest, with midnight blue embellished pants was an instant yes for me! I’ve always love the look of a tailored vest as it embodies independence & power without compensating one’s femininity. The pants for me however, were all about the sparkles, I mean, how could you not?! Adding a neck scarf in patterned blue and a vibrant red stiletto adds depth as well as enhancing the embellishments of the clutch. To top it off I added not one but two of our Meka bracelets to stack one upon the other - as sometimes one bracelet is never enough!
Last but not least we have the Risk Taker. This to me is someone who does’nt follow trends, but instead experiments with fashion of past and present to define their own unique look. I just utterly adore what I like to call the tin foil jacket, not to mention it’s unique colour of lilac. Underneath we have a cropped leather bustier top, complete with a belted metallic brocade mini skirt. But of course this outfit couldn’t be complete without the addition of gold, metallic platforms and doubled, chunky chain bracelets for stacking.
This look is perfect for a night on the town or to watch your favourite artists perform live at a gig!
At Tinka the Label we strive to be as ethical and sustainable as possible, and these values are no different for me personally.
I often get asked where I shop for clothes, but truth be told it’s not so much the labels or particular shops that I have in mind when wanting a new article of clothing, but rather a thought pattern.
