BACK TO BLACK - AMY WINEHOUSE STYLE TRIBUTE

/Shirt thrifted/Skirt new look/Watch michael kors/


This post is entirely dedicated to Amy Winehouse - the woman who had the most incredible talent with a voice like no other in our generation who will also be remembered for her signature style and contribution to fashion. Her poofy backcombed beehive hair and winged eyeliner have inspired Vogue Paris to Chanel runways - Karl Largerfeld describing her as an icon. 

She was always seen in black or bright and bold eye catching dresses, which was the source of inspiration for this outfit. Instead of replicating her exact style I mixed the two sides of Amy's colour choices together and tied up the bottom of the shirt to show a little flesh, giving quite an Amy-esque feel as she was known for her infamous crop top and denim shorts combo that flaunted off her growing collection of ink. The knotted shirt not only adds a hint of 'sexiness' in the most subtle way of showing the least amount of skin, but is a great way to revamp an old shirt.

RIP Amy, you'll be missed! This will always be one of my favourites: back to black xxxxxxxx
