The Sweetest Taboo OOTD



Since my outfit post today is so eighties themed, I thought I would name it after one of my favourite eighties songs, 'The Sweetest Taboo' by Sade. I did kind of want to name it 'Sexual Healing' after the Marvin Gay song...but that wouldn't be very appropriate would it? lol

So here's what I wore:








Glasses: Rayban's from Eyewearbrands.com - £92
Necklace: Faux gold chain from River Island - £12
Jumper: Eighties style jumper from River Island (bought in the sale 3 years ago)
Trousers: Cropped black treggings from River Island (bought a year ago)
Trainers: Nike Air Max 1s from Nike Town - £92

You know what? I think I like my simplest outfits the best. I just threw this together this morning and it kind of all just came together as a theme. I hadn't worn this jumper since my second year at uni and only just rescued it from the bottom of my wardrobe last month, but I'm so glad I did. It's so relevant to the 80s/90s revival which has been happening over the past year. Next time I think I'll take it up another notch by making my make up more dramatic (bright pink lips) and adding more chunky gold jewellery.

Hope you enjoyed reading and feel free to leave comments below :)
