Ted Baker prides itself on quality, attention to detail and a touch of humour in its brand. I was aiming for a look that summed up these features, appearing to be the perfect candidate for the job in once glance. I customised a typical men’s white shirt by fitting the oversized shirt to my proportions, cutting off the long sleeves and framing the sleeveless look with a flash of pink binding. This shows my fun side through the playful colour, but also smart side by wearing a crisp button-up shirt. A peek at my pearl necklace surrounding my collar can just be seen, highlighting my attention to detail and interest in quality touches. When paired with a black & white checked midi-skirt, it shows that I have seasonal trend knowledge through the desired length yet professionalism through the monochrome tones. Topped off with sleek accessories, the look is brought together in a complementary style that represents the ‘not an ordinary designer label’ branding of Ted Baker. Wear the look…don’t let it wear you!
