String Vest Arrest

Creepers: Underground
Backpack: ASOS
Jeans: Vintage Gap
Vest: 'Borrowed'
Phonecase: eBay
Earrings: eBay
Gummie bracelets: ASOS

I've been saying this for a while now, take heed, this summer we will ALL be wearing a string vest! Seriously.
My Dad is West Indian so I have a seemingly endless supply to pilfer at my disposal, it's a Jamaican thing!
They are mega cheap though, you can get them down any market worth it's salt for a couple of quid, or eBay. I'd stick to classic black or white to avoid looking like Gwen Stefani circa 2002... or is that a good thing?? One thing I will say is avoid wearing a colour-pop bra underneath at all costs, unless you want to look like a hoochie! Nude is best.

I have these creepers and I love them teamed with a black biker jacket they never fail to make an outfit look hot. As for the string vest im not 100% sold my male housemate keeps wearing a black one and it looks terrrible on him you wear it much better x

First time I've seen someone is a string vest and thought they looked good. Not just good you look excellent. I think you struck on the holder idea of a nude bra- bit I still don't see myself going within 100feet of one.
Too many early teen years wereing a string best in a punk sort of way (now I just realise I looked stupid).
But you carry it off so well. Really great look.

Freaking love your creepers! I've settled for a cheap-y knock off pair from Schuh but when I have the money I want some proper Underground bad boys. Love the string vest too, nothing wrong with looking like late 90s/early 2000s Gwen - she was at her peak then! x
