There comes a point in any relationship, that one just has to stop caring what your other half thinks of your style. Don´t get me wrong, I do care, and I do get affected by my husband´s less than enthusiastic response when I choose to wear anything too ´fashion`. But as I was saying, there just comes that point when I find a piece that I love so much, that I couldn’t give a flying monkeys whether he likes them or not (no offence, hubby). The fashion piece in question? The Givenchy Chain Mules – which let´s face it, are totally man repelling – but then again, what does it matter?
Sliders, mules – anything easy to slip into, which is comfortable at the same time, and looks insanely good (in my opinion) – is always going to be a winner. I love the chunky fit, the androgynous style and the chain of these ones, which is just the cherry on the top.
The chunky chain and the masculine style, just instantly adds that element of edge to any outfit; balancing out a more feminine look, complements any neutral and casual style, or creates a statement with an all-black ensemble (which I know I have vowed to wear less off, but hey, a leopard never changes it´s spots…).
This is just such a ´me` outfit; casual jeans, a fun sweater, a black coat or gilet, teamed with my favourite, classic accessories. And really, bar the mules (which in my eyes is the ideal investment if you´re looking for some super chic and edgy sliders this season) – the rest of the outfit is just plain sailing and simple – no fuss, no frills… Hence why I can easily get away with these man repellers, without too much of a moan from my other half (only joking).
