This look showcases how to incorporate something small, like zips, into your outfit, without it becoming overbearing. Zips give an edge to your style, and can be used to contrast and balance a more feminine outfit, as can be show here.
The pink Topshop mini pelmet skirt and the pale blue H&M sleeveless blouse are the feminine aspects. These are balanced out by the on-trend check pattern of the skirt, the grey mottled jumper with Aztec detailing on the sleeve from Staring At Stars at Urban Outfitters, and the zips on the skirts, Miss Selfridge leather jacket, and Kurt Geiger heeled boots. The super-mini skirt requires thick black leggings underneath. This, paired with the other black features, provides another contrast to the feminine parts of the ensemble.
The repetition of zips creates a feature of them, whilst remaining subtle enough to not look silly.
