Androgynous.

Continuing with the all black and apparently frequent theme here on Patches and Flash, we’re back with an androgynous crop top and high waisted trouser combination. I feel like it’s the more acceptable version of wearing an 80’s power suit out in public (minus the fear of taking someone’s eye out with some crazy shoulder pads). I’d like to think it partially channels Angelina Jolie in her Tuxedo at the 2014 BAFTAs but it’s probably more Liz Lemon from 30 Rock (If you don’t know about this show, definitely check it out).

The crop top and heels provide a little femininity whilst the rest of the outfit firmly states that you’re professional and mature (which in my case is a tragic lie, but hey I can pretend). It’s also not necessary to be a walking Zara advert like I inadvertently turned out to be; high waisted trousers and crop tops are in most high street shops with good offerings in TopShop, Miss Selfridge and H&M in particular. *Quick Tip* Invest your money in a well fitting blazer that can essentially be worn with anything. T-shirt and jeans? Summer dress? – throw a blazer on top and *boom* you look fancy.
