As you may know from my previous fashion posts, I love to express my nerdy personality through my clothes. Of course I have a fabulous collection of geeky t-shirts, but sometimes I like to get a bit more creative. As it is Christmas - the time of year when we all get to bring out the glitter - I have been inspired to get glittery myself with some sci-fi themed metallics. So, lets take a look at my out of this world (worst pun ever) outfit!
First up, lets start with sequins. To be honest, sequins don’t normally feature in my wardrobe, but when I saw this cute planet t-shirt I absolutely fell in love. This top is simple but fun and definitely shows off a bit of sci-fi pride. It just goes to show that sequins can be incorporated into an every day outfit, without looking over the top. This space themed t-shirt now has pride of place in my wardrobe.
Next up, THAT skirt! I absolutely adore it. Seriously, there are so many things to love about this skirt. The holographic fabric is gorgeously eye-catching and combined with the high-waisted fit, it instantly makes me think of the 90s. Whenever I wear this skirt I get so many compliments from people. The first time I wore it was on a night out and I had complete strangers coming up to me asking where I bought it. One girl even compared me to a mermaid! So, clearly this skirt is popular with everyone and it is a great addition to my spacey sci-fi outfit. Plus, to be totally honest, it reminds me of the hat Marty McFly wears in Back to the Future II - what’s not to love!?
To add an extra bit of shimmer, I bought these black glitter fishnet tights. Fishnets seem to be making a comeback, so when I spotted these glittery ones I knew I had to have them. They are perfect for injecting a subtle bit of sparkle into an outfit and would look great with a little black dress on a night out.
Finally, I added a pastel pink hooded jacket which matches perfectly with the pink hues in the holographic skirt. The jacket is made of a super soft light material and I adore it.
So there we have it, my sci-fi fashion as inspired by the glittery Christmas season.
