Matchday Moment: Tough Yet Delicate

Afternoon, ladies! I hope you're having a great weekend so far - I know I have and I hope it's the same for you too. It's been a great first week of blogging with equally great response from all of you. Though some blogs may reserve weekends for an off day, I thought for the first weekend of The Colney Chic - why not start a series of looks that would focus on outfits for those international summer matches. With Euros coming up, it's always a fun way to show off your summer match day style.

This instalment focuses on combining opposite ends of the spectrum: tough and delicate. Resurrecting a trend that was reserved only for the boldest fashion enthusiasts, we decided to use nude lace shorts as the initial tough yet delicate piece. Nothing says delicate like lace but using it on a saucy short silhouette pares down the bridal image and gives it a bit of an attitude. We pair it with a rocker chic oversized vest top with an abstract skull print and a shrug with the ever-reigning tribal print for both some texture and an extra kick.

Accessories are a mix between a quirky 1960s style sunnies, beautiful beaded sandals, a luxurious white tote with studs for its tough end of the bargain and of course, pink roses around the neck as a sharp contrast with the skull tee.
