Sixth form style

Individuality keeps fashion interesting. Without the constant changes that surround style from person to person every season it's undeniable that the world we live in would become somewhat flavourless. Fashion as a concept would become essentially non existent. I dread to think of the boredom! Unfortunately, I suppose you could say that in some ways I have to face that exact lack of clothing character every Monday to Friday thanks to my school uniform. Don't get me wrong, in comparison to some others I've seen our school was surprisingly clever when designing ours. None of the uniform is particularly unflattering and the colours aren't too offensive. Still, it's painfully dull! I can't help but feel confined by it. 

Luckily for me though within a few months I will be starting sixth form and with it a uniform free life. Of course my school still enforces (lots of) rules, but other than that I will have free range of my wardrobe 7 days a week. It's all quite exciting! With the date quickly approaching I thought it was only right to experiment with a few interchangeable items that could act as key pieces in my styling for sixth form. I stuck to black pieces that anyone could style to work for them and that are extremely easy to add your own personal edge to.
